    My boy tells me. If I dare select the wrong one, he will push it away. If I don't get the hint, he's been known to softly nuzzle the one he wants. No chance at miscommunication there.

    My mare...

    You really don't know if the other livery went back into the barn or not, right? Maybe it was a miscommunication and nobody is lying?

    That said, I wouldn't accept being treated like a liar. Just...

    My gelding got me the first time I rode him by looking directly, intently, questioningly into my eyes when he was a lesson horse still. There was something about that look. I knew then that he would...

    Ouch. I would assume those papers will never materialize after the sale. If the horse is nice and priced as grade, that's one thing. If you need those papers, then it doesn't look so great...

    If I promised to give the mare treats afterwards, absolutely. Otherwise, probably about the same as now - that is, yes, when she is amenable.

    The old guy? He'd fall all over himself to prove how...

    RIP. I respect her choice and admire her bravery in going public. Hopefully one day everybody coping with a terminal illness will be able to make that same choice, if they so desire. So sad for her...

    I'm really surprised by some of the responses here. IMHO, I must know about any changes up front, barring an emergency. I think this expectation is quite reasonable. That said, I absolutely trust my...

    Jealous.

    Don't get me wrong, my DH comes to the barn, helps me groom, even looks after a horse that isn't ours. Shoves treats down their throats. But he won't wait forever and he dislikes shows....

    Good riddance to these jerks!!!! Just... Good luck. I've had great roommates and very bad ones. Just never again. It's so not worth it.

    I am convinced she had her eyelids done. They probably sagged more with age. There's certainly nothing immoral or weird about it. I was disappointed because I suspect she lied about it. I was looking...

    It is so startling to see a family member post as the deceased person. There's obviously nothing immoral in it, yet it makes me uncomfortable. It almost feels irreverent to me. Clearly it helps this...

    Sounds like you have a real problem on your hands. And three weeks really is nothing. Try consistent, firm training for six months and see where you are. I don't have better advice than what many...

    I was measured at Vogel, as was my friend. They cut my boots to make them narrower. They weren't too short until they dropped. So, yes, I do get to blame Vogel.

    When somebody has had all control taken away from them and they're likely facing an end full of suffering, why not face it on your own terms? I fully support a person's right to choose how to face...

    For me, spanking should be used as necessary discipline, without genuine force. That's generally how it was used on me. That didn't leave any emotional scars when done with a fair reason and an...

    Well, the deed is done. I won't tell my husband, he would have told me to MYOB and would worry about retaliation.

    Thank you, everybody, for helping with this.

    Now I'm just trying to figure out how to report it... I feel so horrible for this little girl. He was just so clearly out of control, she must have been so terrified.

    WTF?! Are you kidding me?! Where on earth have I asked you or anybody to feel sorry for me? Apparently it wasn't obvious to you but my concern is for this little girl. Not for me. And not for you.

    Interesting. Hope the service is better. Earlier this summer I ordered Vogels and paid $200 (I believe) extra for a ONE month rush. After about THREE weeks, they said the boots would be late - about...

    That did cross my mind.

    He threatened to hit her and I think he did. Frankly, if, say, she did something wrong and he hit her and it was done, that would have bothered me less than the repeated...

    My neighbor's wife seemed to be away. I heard the father repeatedly, angrily, loudly yelling at his 3 or 4 year old daughter yesterday morning. I mean absolutely enraged,...
