    I don't mind Skyfall's He's a Keeper, but I also like just plain old "Skyfall's Keeper" - simple, says what you want it to say, and doesn't sound quite as Quarter Horse-y to me as "He's a _____".

    Glad to hear that, Horsegal!
    He does look awfully "stealable" - that's a quite a compliment in agility-land!
    Good luck and have fun with him!

    Horsegal, your boy is adorable, and looks like he's having a ball, but please be VERY careful about allowing him to run equipment with a leash dragging! He's fast and drivey enough that he could get...

    House rule for my dogs (all 4 of them) is that you have to complete an RE (Rally Excellent) before I let you play agility. All of my dogs have come to me as late adolescents or adults, so I feel...

    Gotcha!
    Then, if she is the Best Dog Evah, by all means do that going home roadtrip with her - it'll be perfect!

    A bunch of my agility friends do the drive from MD to FL every year for Invitationals, and other major competitions - you could probably do it alone in two days, which, for the right dog, would be...

    Could you buy a 16' or 2 8' gates and hang them across the front of the run-in? Hinge end on wall ends of run-in, I'm thinking. Turns your run-in into one big stall.
    Same effect could be...

    Ask the vet to clip and use a mat breaker (like Leather posted) on anything that crops up afterwards. My big hairy cat used to be fine, but as he's aged (he's pushing 17 now, I guess) he's quit...

    My old guy was fine with the TNT and the Lucerne all-alfalfa, but did not like the Triple Crown forage. TNT and Lucerne were pretty similar, but the TC (as much as I like TC products) was much...

    I have 2 turnout sheets, 2 midweights and a blanket liner - it's a good combo and works well for me - sheet only for when it's not cold, but wet and/or windy, midweight for colder temps and I can...

    Lately, I've been using one of those polarfleece no-sew throws over my bed to minimize the hair and dirt on my thoroughly non-fancy comforter.

    Sounds weird, but my pony likes HOT water in the winter. (Clearly, she hasn't read that study that other folks have referenced.) I learned this last winter when I took a small bucket of hot water...

    In my (limited) experience, if you offer two different bag/net types, the horse will use the one that is "easier" and/or in a more satisfactory location first, and then, when there's nothing left in...

    I read somewhere that it's "Zeezeezee" - need to look up one of his races to see how the announcers said it.

    I have a couple of these: http://www.chicksaddlery.com/page/CDS/PROD/HN1767 for my girl. They have 2" holes and don't slow my pony down much at all - not what I was hoping for, really, but they're...

    Heck, on April 3rd, Xixixi was claimed for $5,000.

    My old guy did well on the Buckeye Ultimate Finish 25% - it's a little extruded nugget, so it mixed well with his giant tub of senior mush, and it smells like vanilla cookies!

    I got a long term barn goal checked off the list late last year when I got electric run out to the barn and put in all LED lights. Having lights and a heated water tub is heavenly!
