    ReubenT, your dream sounds lovely...but your caterer is going to have to drive a chuckwagon.
    All the horsey weddings sound great, and if that is what you want, go for it.

    "Valley of Gwangi" not only has cowboys and dinos, but an eohippus as well. That's the movie linked above. For some reason it was overlooked for an Oscar, alas.

    It's even tougher to run a chipmunk dairy. Of course, if you double up with the boot brushing, it helps make up for the low yield of hand milking all those little faucets.

    Cougars have "routes" that last a week to ten days in many cases, and this cougar, or its siblings, might have been visiting regularly. The barn where I boarded in California had an adult cougar...

    je suis confused.

    Chipotle would be a great pony name.

    I have no idea who the PO is and no inclination to put the effort into research.

    Why didn't fate step in and provide thief with a barn-sour bucker that wouldn't have left the yard?

    Though the thief deserved all of it, the cops should not have continued to beat him after he was...

    It could be worse...her husband could have popped out of the tackroom and run into the woods...you'd have to bait the trap with a six-pack.

    That is the beauty of a center-rigged saddle - a more stable rig and it isn't in the horse's armpits, either. I've never had a saddle tilt so much that it wanted to tip me out when I was riding...

    Flank cinches for general use are always smooth leather and must have the link strap so that they don't go back where they don't belong. Why not consider getting an Aussie saddle that is center-fire...

    I copied this in here because it is so similar to so many of the OCD barn owners that get described on these pages.

    I was going to suggest Broken Horn, but I see that I've been beaten to it. When we lived in Bakersfield, the ladies of the barn made a pilgrimage to Broken Horn one day, and it was wonderful. We...

    There used to be a big fancy fund-raiser horse show in Wilsonville, "The Country Classic," that IIRC was linked with the Portland Opera. It was miles above the usual horse show, with tents and...

    I think he looks just like a lot of other Appies and isn't ugly at all. Or at least not substantially so. The perfect Pony Club horse. Roach his mane and send him out to be an eventer or family...

    Oh my. I never had time to read back then, it took too much time to chase the dinosaurs away from the farm. Darn things kept stirring up the stock all the time.

    The big brand is probably the result of using a cattle iron on a horse as a youngster - horse irons are smaller. I've seen a few of the oversized brands, usually on reservation stock. The family...
