    Ignore it. Stop taking this person's calls. Block the email sender.

    This isn't a big deal. This is a scam artist who is taking advantage of you because s/he can probably tell you are...

    Well, damn. I wish they'd told me it was for demographics. I always assumed it was to validate my credit card, the way online retailers and gas pumps do. My zip for my card is my PO Box, which is...

    That might be worth it. :) He's gotten a lot better, but when we first started back into work he had a pretty good spook-and-spin move.

    Well, I haven't been. But I wonder if using one would keep me from having to stomp on the right stirrup to right my saddle again after I mount? It's slippy.

    Used to fit well until I gave horse...

    I would bet most of the BNCs come somewhere near Houston. They all have webpages with their clinic schedules - in your place I'd just pick a few I liked and see when they will be near you.

    If...

    Right. I had one of those. Don't know why, but although a saint under saddle, he felt he had to defend himself on the end of a lunge if someone picked up a whip. Had no compunction whatsoever...

    I would put her on a lunge so I could turn her head towards me. That way, her back feet would be pointed away from me. :)

    I do not love lunging. But I do it, because I have finally been...

    Except for this poor guy who was doing exactly as instructed - retrieving his drivers license - when the cop shot him for reaching into his vehicle. :rolleyes:

    Now, that SOB who stole the horse? ...

    From this article


    So he's a wife-beating, puppy-murdering horse thief. Can't work up a whole lot of outrage over what happened to him.

    I can't imagine how he didn't get shot by the police...

    Wow, did no one else get directed to a scary pop-up ad instead of the daily mail website?

    It's different because the leverage bit will always be a part of the ride. The correction will not - done right, it won't need constant repetition.

    I'd always rather see a sharp effective...

    Used to not. Then I'd wind up stressed because my horse wasn't getting worked. And he's the type who has to be in regular work, or he becomes difficult. So then my rides would be stressful when I...

    Must be my problem, too. It thinks I'm either from Winston-Salem NC or Jackson Mississippi. :lol: I'm a native South Carolinian.

    Thank you! I have very fond memories of my first pony, a Shetland mare, and didn't think there were any of these around any more on this side of the Atlantic. One day I'm going to have one of...

    My dad's side of the family says "yu'uns" instead of "y'all." And then there is the even more plural (:confused:) "yu'unses."

    They're all from South Carolina. But the far northwestern corner,...

    This week I lost a horse and euthanized my elderly border collie. :(

    The horse colicked one morning. Vet came out, tubed, hydrated and sedated. Horse was 27 so not a candidate for surgery. When...

    Leave your head in position, chin up, facing forward, and just glance down with your eyes. :) Your head weighs a lot (all those brains, right? :yes:) so if you let your head tip forward you...

    For the past year, I've had a border collie who can't get up on her own. Once I help her up, she gets around fine - until she falls. :( One vet says hip dysplasia. Another vet says spinal stenosis...

    I started with a dozen chicks and now, nearly a year later, still have eight hens. They free-range during the day and are locked up in the chicken house at night.

    They have helped tremendously...

    Very good quality, acres of choices, fast service, and you cannot beat the prices. :)

    Beware! I hung myself by my belt from my saddle horn recently. Right after I'd handed someone my knife and ridden away. :uhoh:
