    Suz - depending on where you are there could be a soup kitchen that would love having your help volunteering ona more regular basis. I know that I get a big lift every time I'm volunteering in the...

    Appreciate your thoughts. For what it's worth, I did actually maintain it quite well and had Leslie and David look at it just about every year to make sure it was still fitting my horses and...

    My Stackhouse was made 12 years ago, so perhaps they tinkered with the balance some in the new ones? I was ok in it up to Prelim but anything bigger was harder to stay centered and I felt like I had...

    I adore Lesley and David and enjoyed working with them. That being said, I found over the years that I had trouble maintaining my leg in my XC saddle and was much more secure and stable in a...

    Flannel bandages and homemade spider bandages. I think I still have mine somewhere in the bottom of my tack trunk.

    So at this point (24 hours+), the vet's not likely to be able to stitch it. Thus, so long as it's clean, that small (1cm) and does not have heat/swelling, I'd be inclined ot keep it clean and be...

    Assuming you've run all the medical traps and there's no issue there, I'd be curious what he does if your coach takes him to a show. If he pulls the same stunt with him/her, then I think you've got...

    Hmm. I'm not doubting you've done your homework, and it's none of my business how much you've saved to date. Thus, feel free to discount the following.

    But just as an uninterested observer,...

    This. Anyone remember the first few Rolex after they went to short format? There were more than a couple horses who was so wired-for-sound-fit that they jumped flat to the first fence and then ran...

    I wouldn't, but everyone makes their own decisions. If you quit and take the grooming job, you most likely will not be able to fund the careers of at least three of your four horses. Grooming, even...

    So, my first reaction is that there's no such thing as a "sound horse". There is a horse who trots sound today. There is a horse who passes a PPE with flying colors and no significant issues. ...

    I think nurture goes a long way. We have a former feral barn cat that we couldn't catch for more than two years. Profoundly independent, wouldn't let you near him, wouldn't take treats or eat cat...

    Molly - huge thanks to you and COTH for these live streams. The viewing interface is super and makes it really easy to run them through the Apple TV. Much more user friendly than USEF's stream, and...

    Er, not exactly. Depends on what you're prioritizing. When it comes to food production, much of the newer "examples" supplanted the heirloom breeds and species for reasons having to do with their...

    Please tell me that the old Looney Tunes is on repeat: "I'm gonna love him and kiss him and call him George."

    I think s/he is precious. Congrats!

    Absolutely would pay a premium for heritage, organic pork. Out here the locavore movement is going gangbusters and there are several organic butchers who specialize in local meat from small producers...

    Agree with those who say that price is too high for a mid-teens lower level horse with shivers who is a fussy eater. Even if he stays at his status quo, that's a lot of maintenance and downside for...

    So first things first: if it's not fun, don't go. If it's pouring down rain, if it's cold and deep mud, if the kid's-and-pony aren't going to enjoy it, there's always another event. Seriously, talk...

    Dog DNA testing?

    Our recent rescue girl is a bit of a Heinz 57: shelter thought she was a schnauzer cross; vet suggested Boykin/terrier combination; I'd guess miscellaneous black-and-fuzzy. Solely as a matter of...
