    I don't question that this place needed some kind of intervention. But I'm a little put off that the media are making such a fuss about buried carcasses. What is a place like this supposed to do with...

    Ten years in Sept for me. I was back on at four weeks, but I have a saintly quarter horse gelding, and supportive friends to hold the lead rope the first time. It will take time for all of the...

    I don't see that much need to pursue formal diagnosis if the diet change is the only fix, but make sure you've pursued that as far as you can. The link below describes a diet that suggests a pound of...

    How much fat is he getting? The alfalfa was just a suggestion, whatever feed you are using, as long as it's low starch/sugar should be fine. In addition to the canter issues, what you describe about...

    EPSM. I lived exactly what you describe with my Perch/TB gelding, and he was confirmed EPSM by muscle biopsy. Get this fellow off of grain (starch/sugars), add some oil (or other fat source) to his...

    If the results come back that both involved were stone, cold sober, then at least their loss will have led to a good discussion and reminder to not drive under the influence, which is, apparently,...

    Hawk 2h BP DR. I had a '97 F250 7.3L diesel for 17 years, loved it, the engine will run forever but some of the peripheral stuff was wearing out. Traded it for a '12 F150 5.0L gas. Am very happy with...

    You may have figured this out already, but it looks to me that there are two billets coming off the crown piece. the one toward the face should be buckled to the pieces that hold the bit, and the one...

    Hope you get a happy outcome out of this. What an unfortunate thing!

    Just throwing this out there, didn't see it mentioned in my quick read-through. I have one who had recurring colics, about every six weeks, diagnosed as primarily gas colics, but included the tight...

    Heavy handed because they were riding horses who are used to jumping in a different style. As much as we gripe about modern XC courses being like stadium jumping with galloping in between, there...

    In fact it does not specify who is retiring them, only that they are being retired. One can only assume it is by their owner as that is the person who ultimately has control of their use. I would...

    Seriously?? I mean, really, seriously?

    I suppose we could resort to the strategy that the hunter folks use to "prepare" their horses, in the event of a fractious youngster at its first show....

    Yes, if the strands are all connected and the lowest is shorted, the whole thing is shorted. Someone suggested hooking up the lower strands so that they can be disconnected with a switch from the...

    What a cute fellow! You will have a blast with him, and what a treat it is to meet a person like his owner!

    I get lower strands that have come out of the insulators, and what I find amusing (?) is that the insulators have clearly been thoroughly chewed on. Ah, nature ...

    I've said this quietly to myself many times over the year-plus since that day you all stopped in Waynesville and we had lunch, and now I'll say it once more:

    Thank you, Phillip

    A pack of disposable nitrile gloves is useful here. Wish it came in a bottle with some kind of dauber, but I think that would generally dispense too much. Dribble and toothbrush (I actually use a...

    I have some steep slopes that I bushhog with a smallish tractor. I had a dozer guy make some cuts across the face of the slope, I go up the cuts (like almost flat, narrow roadways) and turn and go...

    It's not one of the Herriot books. I've read those so many times I'm sure I'd recognize at least one of those stories if it were in them, and I don't recognize any of those.

    Oh, horrors. The AECs, on what will essentially be a virgin course, designed by Phillips? I am SO glad I'm too old for this!

    It IS a lovely facility, almost too lovely for eventing, in my opinion....

    I thought it meant Tryon one year, then CO, then back to Tryon? Or maybe T, T, C. Or some such. Not that clear yet.

    Waiting to see who the course designer will be for Tryon before I decide this is...
