    I found the Gloves too fussy to fit and put on (this was when they first came out; they may have changed). I like our Renegades; super easy to put on and take off. The one time one came off (I had...

    I did it all the time when I was buying my own hay. You can fit about 12 bales in the minivan.

    I didn't notice the hay remnants were anything the vacuum at the car wash couldn't handle. If...

    Nah. See, what's happening here is that the equine just dumped the kid. The grass is actually 6 feet high, so the poor child is actually in the act of falling from an 18-hh horse to the ground. ...

    Yep, I have one. Top teeth are nubs, after a lifetime of cribbing (which she is now giving up, because she can't get a grip with her top teeth anymore. Go figure.) No issues; at 25, she seems to...

    In addition, his feet appear very unconventional. I see quite a bit of degradation in his hoof wall, such that his feet are clawlike.

    Everything NSN just said.

    Also, another vote for asking her, "What's the best way for me to be a good friend to you right now?" and asking her husband the same thing.

    I see that he goes bitless. I wonder if this is a good idea for this particular mount. I also find it hard to keep a balanced, connected seat when my mount carries their head so high, but, everybody...

    Focus on why you are moving to this particular barn, and let that guide your actions and values.

    Everyone loves drooling over nicer tack, more beautiful stuff, etc. :-) That's just human. :-) ...

    Whatever is costing you something that will take six months to pay off, get rid of it. :-) You do not need it. Tell us what it is, and we of COTH will come up with an alternative that is within...
  10. Any financial planners (by profession) out ther?

    Anyone really good at financial planning and real-estate stuff? I want to downsize; DH does not. I'm trying to find out if it makes financial sense to move. Current house is large, lovely,...
  11. PA Folks: Any good contacts for foster homes for dogs?

    Well, our breed's rescue organization is just awash in Kerry blue terriers (www.kerryblues.info) needing homes. I don't know if the longer days have brought them out of their former homes or what,...

    Well, if it were me, I'd have the wedding in September. As a first-time mom, you will be showing but not huge, and you will might be feeling pretty good.

    I'd farm out as much of the wedding...

    Aww. I think it looks like a great movie for a rainy night with no husbands or children around, but with a goodly supply of ice cream and of chips and salsa. I'm with Dungrulla. There are times when...

    If we want them to buy gloves, despite their quite clear explanations for why they choose to devote their existing resources elsewhere, maybe donate to their cause?:)

    This is an awesome story, because PP's new place looks just as wonderful as her old place, and I'm getting in line to buy the place in Oregon when PP wants to sell it. :-)

    I didn't care for my Duett, once I tried something else. I couldn't feel a thing in the Duett. I tried a Stuebben and could not believe what I had been missing. My horse is high-withered and a bit...

    I board my picky senior. Eventually the barn staff suggested feeding her with a feed bag, as she was taking ages to eat and it was complicating her turnout. Now they park a feed bag over her head...

    Canadian Trotter's post was also a classic line from The Princess Bride, in case that was in question.
