    What happened to giving a dictionary? Or, since he's special, maybe go big time with a dictionary and a thesaurus. Toss in a package of note cards too if you're feeling especially generous.

    From my point of view, you can have the world's best dressage test and/or show jumping test, but it doesn't do you any good if you can't get through cross country. The other two elements can...

    I have far more respect for someone who makes up their own horses more or less by themselves than the ones who simply go out and buy a made horse. Congrats to Colleen and both your horses.

    I'll admit to being very shocked and saddened by this episode. However, it just occurred to me--while it makes for greater drama to show all the monitors flat-lining at the end, since Derek and...

    I've been enjoying the commercials and wondered when someone would bring them up. The horse is a definite improvement on the horses in most commercials--and they are clever.

    I see that the original post is almost 2 years old. Did the OP continue on with her plans?

    From the short video he looks great, having a nice quiet trot around the track. I think this will be a very good experience for him, and the scenery is very, very nice. Have no idea what a rubbing...

    I am jealous/furious that I didn't think of the salt on a rope! Best invention to come down the road in a long time. My horse likes the pink stuff too, although at the moment he's not on a salt...

    I have a pair that have developed a few pin holes in the crotch area. I am thinking of digging around and finding an old discard pair of breeches and taking the present pair to a seamstress and...

    Of course, if the owners win and can get the horses back, they will probably be charged with $$$$$ for board over those months--and I don't believe that Days End is cheap.

    Not fiction, but fascinating anyway--America as Seen by its First Explorers, which is a book by Dover. I found the first impressions fascinating, especially the fact that many of the explorers could...

    I believe the passport system in Europe and Britain is of two types, for slaughter and not for slaughter. The not for slaughter horses can receive regular medications but can never pass over into...

    I'm sorry, but I don't think that the RARAs had anything in the world to do with this. The slaughter plants exist solely because of demand from the EU, which they are under contract to supply. No...

    I hope you go ahead and try the Seminole feed. Like I said, I fought switching over to the Wellness feed, partly because it was championed by some barn mates who also endorsed all sorts of holistic...

    Just discovered this thread, but if the barn is switching to Seminole feed, the Wellness brands are well worth the added cost. I fought it tooth and nail at first, but finally put my senior horse...

    Sorry, but I LOOOOVE Florida, especially with the gazillion feet of snow everyone is having. Hot is better than cold any time.

    Dr. Doolittle:

    (As an aside, The Americans repeats at 11 pm. Since I like to watch Nashville at 10, I can also enjoy The Americans at 11).

    Waiting on pins and needles. One more day, and Wednesdays will be great again--Survivor, Nashville, and The Americans. Total bliss.

    A little late here, but Sharleen, the opera singer from Juan Pablo's season, has had a great blog for the last year or so, and is covering Chris' season as well. It's called All the Pretty Pandas,...

    I'm a thrift shop painting collector myself, and this is a nice one. Not quite my cup of tea, but someone should be able to wind up with a nice painting. Thanks for posting.
