    Our house will be 100 years old next year.

    When we renovated we found old newspapers in the walls, dating back to Shirley Temple's childhood, and used for insulation.

    He was a dog lover and had several English Bull Terriers (so do we.)

    I find Lauruffian's posts so interesting - her knowledge of these creatures and her out of the box thinking to make it work. When my son was little he bred mice and rats to take down to the...

    Not doubting you guys - but it seems like too quick a fix. We are told that proper work produces a topline, or being overweight. Do these horses not get too chubby? Do they not get that...

    Mine are blanketed except when ridden, for a few reasons - to keep her clean because she is white and to lay the hair for looks. I change the sheet for a blanket later...

    The dog psychologists here will pan me - but a squirt of water when he does it? When he is quiet, praise?

    All the racehorse people here ship both together, no partitions and do not tie but leave halters on, and these are babies going with their mothers to the stallion, so are very young.

    Good marketing is one thing - having that sales pitch and being able to use it is what makes success.

    I wonder what the back story to this horse is. Often a horse is given to a keen, gutsy young person to work with because the original owners have not had the knowledge to work her, and the young...

    Height of selfishness not to vaccinate and produce herd immunity - for the sake of the few children who cannot, for medical reasons, risk shots.

    Many live to regret that decision when their kids...

    My eyes are not that quick, but he is a nice horse - as usual, I say back off the bit, less is more. He is telling you something, your job is to find out what. A common problem (that I can't see...

    I'm good at cremating things - I use the vinegar method too, and then hand the job over to my husband. He gets going with his polishing tools and I get a new shiny pot back, without too many comments.

    The OP has tried bits from mild to stronger, and the pony flips or curls under so a kineton might not be the answer. I had a strong standardbred who went beautifully in the kineton on the hunt, but...
