  2. Does anyone ride with a fly whisk in the summertime?

    Just curious. i saw some advertised today and it occurred to me that I've never used one in all the years I've been riding. The horse I'm half leasing now is very bug intolerant, I wonder if he'd...

    I've been dealing with tennis elbow (really mucker's elbow!) for about the last 4 months. I finally went to the sports med/ortho doc and he put me on anti-inflammatories (Meloxicam) for 6 weeks and...

    This kind of stuff is exactly why I sent my last two to a consignment barn to be sold... I just don't have the patience to deal with people! I had one lady ask if she could do some NH ground work...

    Try posting this in the h/j forum, maybe someone is going to HITS next week from that area that he could catch a ride with. :)

    I wish I could help but I am trailer-less as well.

    Thanks for the suggestions! Another question, would a trail ride on the Greenway be worthwhile or should we save our time for spectating and shopping? We'll only have a few days to fit everything in.

    Ocala Must Do's?

    A friend and I are heading down to Ocala for a few days soon (escaping the cold... yay!). We already plan to spectate/shop at HITS and possibly audit the winter event training. Are there any other...

    Having been down the Alzheimer's road with my grandmother, I agree that things can be MUCH worse than they appear on the surface. My grandmother was livid at my mom when it finally got to the point...

    You could try putting a bucket on the floor in a corner and stacking shavings around it. I've done that in the past with fairly good results.

    I have the insulated buckets from Dover, they still...

    ayrabz, I'm not saying their wealth is a negative, I was simply responding to your post that indicated you thought they were young, struggling business people. We're not exactly destitute ourselves...

    Ayrabz, FWIW, those children's great granddaddy invented the aluminum can. So we're not talking about some struggling young business owner here. They are all living off giant trust funds.
  15. No, that is a pretty good summary. What the...

    No, that is a pretty good summary. What the proposed Senate bill would do is exempt the brewery from the county's current restrictions regarding paving, maintenance and number of visitors. They would...

    JSwan, I totally agree. We are a working farm in that we produce and sell horse hay. The brewery owners fall into the uber-rich category, this is a fun tax write off for their large trust funds. Real...

    The road will remain "private" but this bill will prevent the county from limiting traffic or requiring any road improvements or maintenance.

    JSwan, thank you for your excellent synopsis. I'll buy you lunch if you come testify at the House committee meeting. :) Seriously though, spread the word to your NoVA peeps and ask then to contact...
  19. Ayrabz, any business besides a winery or brewery...

    Ayrabz, any business besides a winery or brewery would be subject to local zoning ordinances. I'm not sure why VA wants to give just those 2 types of business an advantage.
    To clarify we (and the...

    Yes, that is it and as a matter of fact, that language is there because the COUNTY required them to put it on all websites/advertising. It is at the end of our private road meaning that it is almost...
  21. ayrabz, you should be concerned because it...

    ayrabz, you should be concerned because it exempts them from local zoning ordinances that every other business and citizen in your county has to abide by. The localities know what works for their...

    That's great and all but it will require litigation on my part or the county's part to prove the substantial impact and to reinstate the local zoning ordinance on them.

    We have already had several days where hundreds of cars have travelled up and down our private road. We're talking a road so narrow that two cars cannot pass without one pulling over on the...

    red mares, this is not a case of sour grapes at all. What should make you want to jump up and call your congressman is that you could be like me, own a farm on a small private road and have your...

    I wanted to add, we do NOT oppose farm breweries in Virginia. What we have a huge problem with is the state taking away the localities' authority as to zoning and land use issues.
