    Brings back memories! I grew up on a dairy farm, and our horse lived with the cows. Cows groom each other, and they took to grooming the horse too. Horse loved it!

    I agree NBChoice! My oldster was a Siamese as is my current cat. Both are/were the old style -- applehead, big bodied. They're not the more angular, thinner show types.

    My last cat lived to 17, a pretty good feat considering that he had megacolon from the age of 4. My current kitty is only 9.

    I've had really good luck with Durasole (on the soles, not the walls). I apply a small amount and work it around the sole with a toothbrush. A bottle lasts me quite a while.

    I learned to knit and crochet as a child and pretty good at both. I find that most crocheted sweaters end up being heavy and stiff. If you use a larger hook or mostly double crochet, you can get a...

    I work with a lot of transfer students. You need to visit with an advisor in your desired major at the school where you wish to transfer. Some credits from previous schools are matched automatically,...

    Not all misbehavior is due to pain. Many horses figure out that they don't have to work if they buck, bolt, stop, etc. The OP is wise to consider both scenarios. There are a number of things she...

    I see these bits as more of a way to re-educate the horse on how to carry himself, not as a permanent fixture for schooling. I sometimes school in a Mikmar combination bit. Yes, I can get him off his...

    I have a nice wooden grooming tote, but I hate using it because it's one large space with no dividers. If you take one brush out, everything else falls down. It's hard to keep organized. So, I...

    A number of years ago I used Vetrolin liniment mixed with water on my horse after a workout. His legs swelled up. The swelling went down after I bathed him. Gave the Vetrolin away and have never...

    I own a cribber (thin-skinned, sensitive TB) and use the Miracle Collar with the fleece covers. He doesn't have any rubs or bald spots with 10 years of using it. He wears it in his stall but not...

    My former BO tried it once. My horse had a 900 FEC/g one week after receiving it. Needless to say, BO never used it again. Save your money and use a dewormer that's effective.

    The Sensation and Innovation seem similar in seat depth to me, and both have deeper seats than the Stabilizer. I don't know about the Conquest.

    Good that you're trying both. I had my Stabilizer first and thought I'd never find a saddle I liked more. Then I tried the Innovation. I like the deeper seat, and it puts my leg in a better...

    I completely understand. Most of what I get out of watching the George Morris sessions is from the commentary, not the actual riding. But I do understand your point about SEEING someone who doesn't...

    A well stocked first aid kit before you bring the horse home. You never know when you'll need it.

    I will not be listening. It's already sad enough without me having to hear the reality of it that will play over and over in my head.
