    i'm not clear on what you think the charge should be? The trim is a valid expense, right? And twice you've told him to leave an invoice for the re-set.

    I share your distaste for animal acts in circuses and theme parks -- and I have the same opinion of horse operations where there is extremely limited turnout (and there are some disciplines that I...

    I get that your husband doesn't want to look petty by pulling back the equipment that you've loaned the barn. But seriously, if you choose not to pull those favors back, you forfeit the right to...

    When you buy something at the store, does the cashier appear stressed about asking you for the money you owe? Asking your clients to pay board should be as simple and unemotional a transaction as...

    @ LoriB,
    I don't think anyone thinks that the seller is completely guilt-free, or that OP bought a true beginner safe horse and screwed it up in 3 months. What I read in most responses (and what...

    It's a rare, rare pony that can do 24/7 turnout--unless you've got a great setup already for dry lotting, I would not get a companion pony or mini. I guarantee your vet or farrier knows of someone...
