    I was a very confident rider at one point. Then I had 2 pretty scary wrecks
    within 6 months of each other. In one instance the horse fell on me and I
    lucky enough to get away with 'only' a...

    My mare had to be on one month of stall rest on 2 different occasions. I

    That is really sad. There is nothing more you could have done and you did
    save him a few days of suffering.

    I've seen this quite often at hunter paces over the years. People just
    don't get that you actually have to fit your horse up to do them. It is
    *NOT* a leisurely hour ride in the woods. Sure,...

    You have to stay I a certain distance from all the monuments - I think

    ^Thanks - I'll take a look on FB.

    This is my first weekend in 30 years that I've been horseless. It feels really weird.

    I think the OP has been more than fair and is handling this very professionally. If the boarder does try and make her life a living hell for the remainder of the month, she still has the option to...

    I'm in NJ. And I'd be willing to go anyplace I could drive to in a few hours.

    And I guess this is the part of the healing process for me. I miss my mare but also want to think about the future.

    Where to even start ?

    I lost my beloved mare of 18 years rather suddenly this past Wednesday. She was a very young 20 and I was riding her right up to the day before. It's still hard to believe she is really gone. I...

    I've had 2 in my life. They are very smart and tough horses. It takes you longer to get them to do things because you need to convince them that your way really is the BEST way to do something. ...

    That is the problem with those big, powerful dogs - too many of them have owners who do not know WTF they are doing. And don't realize it until it's too late.

    Take lessons for a while longer, maybe half lease a horse.

    Don't get another horse until you regain your confidence with experienced school horses again.

    Herding dogs : Give them a job or they will find one on their own LOL.

    I have always had 2 dogs. They are really not any more work than one dog.
    They keep each other company when I'm busy...

    There is a no kill shelter about 45 minutes away. They 'grew' out of a vet
    clinic. They are picky about what dogs they accept, but I actually know one
    of the staff vets - we boarded our horses...

    If I see these dogs running loose and I don't see the owners, I will be scooping them
    up and taking them to the shelter myself. Probably to the no-kill shelter that actually

    I use a round cake rack in the bottom of my big stock pot. The cans sit
    lower in the water than the pasta strainer insert and I have room to do
    3 1 pt jars, or 8 1/2 pt jars in one go.

    I don't...

    Good to know ! I had the seals fail on an entire batch of hot pepper jelly and I'm still not sure why. I thought maybe it was because I didn't simmer the lids long enough. But I guess not.

    Rant: Please leash your dogs in urban areas

    I ran over my neighbor's little dog this morning. Just a few days ago they were running up the street and had a close call. She was told by someone else a few...

    While this was an unfortunate outcome, at least she took responsibility for the problem. Too many people would not have been as responsible.
