    Mcintosh, hands down. I used to love going to the orchard store in the fall- I remember the one smaller family farm owner handing kids a apple when we walked in with Mom. I haven't had one in years,...

    I dunno. I think some horses, like some people, are naturally friendlier than others. I've had "neglected" youngsters that adore attention and others who remain aloof in spite of trying to make a pet...

    Lowly LPN here. I totally agree. No matter what the doctor orders, if a nurse is uncomfortable giving that medication for patient safety reasons, s/he can refuse to administer that medication. I've...

    If I didn't have horses I'd have a nice car, be able to take vacations, eat out, buy clothes from places other than Rugged Wearhouse or Goodwill....but then what meaning would life have?

    In response to somebody suggesting I take a goofy horse on a trail ride (my horses aren't anybody-can-ride types)- hand 'em the reins "Here, have at it!" Pretty sure that would start a little...

    I don't like the sour cream topping either. I pretty much use the Philly recipe, and I don't try anything cutesy like trying to bake the thing in a water bath.

    I work in a psych facility. It's a rare day that ISN'T interesting, unusual or exciting, at least compared to the average person's day.

    I've got a '99 model 3H slant GN that I bought new. Haven't had any real problems with it- a few of the trim pieces have had to be re-glued is all. It hauls great- it's almost easy to forget it's...

    I prefer to have ponds fenced off so the horses don't destroy the banks. I let a couple of mine out around the pond a week or so at a time in the summer to do the lawn mowing. I used to have one old...

    I have never been afraid to ride in general. I had a horse that shook my confidence on that particular horse (sold him) and I have one now that for some reason decided to be an unpredictable bucking...

    I will spend what I can afford. I won't go into debt or risk my own or my other critters' welfare for one. Other factors include prognosis for a high quality of life afterwards and yes, age. Some...

    True, BUT, if you have two equal performances in a subjective event, the winner will most likely be the horse that is turned out to the highest standard. Why handicap yourself before even getting...

    I do it too. I used to be good and always use a strand or two of wire that was actually hot. The horses I have now that I trust on the lawn are older and respectful of fence, so I sometimes just...

    We have a couple of guns, so I don't hate them. They've come in handy a few times on the farm (rogue coyote, nasty dogs harassing horses, raccoon acting strangely during the day, etc.) No handguns,...

    Part of it is a baby thing- all my ASB babies seemed to have freaky long pasterns when they were first born. And it's a breed thing- while you don't want too long, you want a longer pastern than say,...
