    Fake it until you make it. There is so much presentation that goes into producing a conformation horse. But we do it to ourselves too. Women blow out their hair, and depuff under their eyes and...

    Sounds like a colt I had. He would be holding it together and then all of a sudden he would look at me like: "the voices in my head say I have to kill you now". It never came to that but...

    My mother's extremely IR, foundered horse had to be blanketed in the winter. And he was the type who was ribby but cresty. The problem was that he wouldn't move around with a blanket that...

    We needed guns a couple of months ago to euthanize an injured raccoon. Since the officer they sent wouldn't get within 15 feet of it and only injured it worse. And my husband knew better than to...

    Neat. My husband keeps threatening to dig a house into a slope. We'll probably at least experiment with solar panels at some point.

    Regarding the wrapping of legs. I have read that wrapping legs to warm them helps combat both the foot soreness (due either to neuritis or surges in ACTH levels) and arthritis pain that some horses...

    Start with hot water carried from the house in milk jugs or heated with a drop in heater. Bag hay before soaking. Soak for at least half an hour to an hour. Haul it out into a clean muck tub to...

    For those of you who think you cannot soak hay in the winter: you do what you have to do. And yes, sometimes that means figuring out how to soak hay in single digits.

    Not saying it would lower...

    That was my first thought as well. We had a pretty familiar family of crows around home for a couple of years. I was about to strangle them. They have now dispersed to a more pleasant level.

    I've had grey, silver, tan and dark blue. My dark blue car kept getting hit. When we went car shopping, my husband insisted we get a bright color. I ended up with ruby red, but I was totally open...

    I totally "get" the fact that if you have a signature piece that stands out you have to limit its exposure. No one wants to be accused of wearing the same britches 5 days in a row.

    I always...

    Eddie Bauer talls usually stay long enough with regular washing and sensible drying for several years. Lands End talls stay pretty well. Another one you may not have heard of is Soft Surroundings. ...

    I'll bet the percentage that do are pretty high. My last car I had to get the manual out to figure out how to turn them OFF. My current car it's easy, but DH doesn't trust them and he's always...

    Who would imagine that the person with the weirdest personnel issues would be the Dowager. She handles it wonderfully. I think she sort of enjoys it. As much as I dislike Denke I was so pleased...

    Was I not the only one expecting him to wrap that roadster around the gatepost on his way out?

    I really don't think the words "I'm Sorry" are under scrutiny here. I think what the OP wanted from BOT was for them to follow up and do what they said they were going to do in a professional and...

    Any chance it isn't just his ears, but his poll? My horse is OK about his ears, but really really funny about poll pressure. He will pull back tied. He will sometimes pull back led. He won't let...

    I don't think I have any full blown phobias, but I can understand some of the ones here. Don't like talking on the phone. Don't like traveling (borderline agoraphobic). Don't like crowds. I still...

    Most do these days. But why, if we idiot proof every other damned thing on cars these days, can we not tie the headlights into the wipers?

    We have a 50x50 "longeing" arena on the back side of the barn. It opens to three turnout areas. It doubles as "run in shed" and "dry lot" in all seasons. Could not live without it. Right now,...
