    Just learned via a phone call. I don't think my brain has processed yet, but Seema was an amazing friend & role model -- I never felt worthy of her spontaneous generosity. What a big space she...

    Yep, we have a quarantine in our county. Although I don't have any ash trees on the farm, I did at my old house. Dang exotic species ruining things... :-(

    Just curious -- why 90k? A well-maintained diesel from a good model year/engine design is still a baby at that mileage. I bought my beloved Precious 7.3L at 109k six years ago. It just hit 175k &...

    Also keep in mind that ALL foams naturally degrade over time, it's a materials science rule. So the ability of any foam, albeit in a helmet, pad, etc, to compress/rebound/absorb shock is not...

    PS Have you talked to Ecogold? The owner is wonderful & went out of his way for me when I had fit problems & annoying science questions, heh.

    I have 2 Ecogolds, one Secure jumper pad & one half pad that I use regularly, for at least 3 years? Only a little bit of rubbing on the jumper pad in a tiny spot on each side when I use a...

    Disclaimer: I've only read the 1st 3 pages, so this has perhaps already been discussed, I apologize, but the pedant/safety nazi in me had to point this out as 100% NOT TRUE & dangerously misleading....

    Small animals/domestic pets should never be put outside unsupervised (in addition to the massive wildlife carnage of outdoor cats). Your horses will be fine. Wildlife is a GOOD thing.

    Oooo thanks for more fun! Fascinating! Encore also has several Mahmoud crosses, as well as Tom Fool, War Relic, Djebel, Nearctic (therefore, we should obviously be doing Burghley, snork) -- &...

    Yep, I wait until the ground is soft after some good rain. I set a small t-post driver on top of the post to make a flat surface (if I don't have help, I just do a couple whacks with driver so it...

    How very sad. While nothing, except maybe the engineered EXO, could reduce those level of crush injuries & impact force, it is frustrating that thin/untested vests are even still available.

    I know what you mean b/c I did the same thing, but the first sentence reads a bit terrifyingly, LOL.

    Having grown up there, this reinforces why I don't go to Rolex anymore. I took someone who was fairly non-horsey in 2006, it was fun to show it to them, but otherwise, never went back after 2003. ...

    Yep -- and keeping your spine straight when you hit the ground is NOT a good thing. It just directs all the force of impact to your vertebrae & skull, instead of dissipating said force through...

    Ummmm, not really. I think we all know vast numbers of accidents & injuries occur even in *gasp* dressage training or trail rides or even grooming! Doing away with people on horses would be safest,...

    Yep, well, explained, especially from the inside. That money is already gone making the event happen. I also had to eat over $600 (extremely painful when it's about 1/2 your monthly income) when I...
