    Had a tibial plateau fracture 10 years ago and was back on a horse within 6 or 8 weeks. YEs, that was without surgeon's permission, but he agreed when I confessed that it wasn't riding which...

    Of course, in clinics we are also watching the clinician teach the rider the concepts, often under the guise of movements. That takes longer than teaching the horses. :)

    Sure, and where were you when the FEI was looking for new royalty, Prince Reed? That is 10 times brillianter than anything they will ever cook up!

    Isn't it possible that it would encourage conservative riding? Take the slow route, accrue some time faults, but make sure to finish? I'm not about to jump blindly on any bandwagon, certainly not...

    I got my wilderness EMT certification years ago (the wilderness portion refers to learning protocols for if you are more than an hour from hospital care , and let it expire almost as many years ago,...

    I like the girth and blanket size questions to save driving time or give some better idea what you are driving to. Though it's true, if I suddenly decided to sell my herd tomorrow, I know pretty...

    Excellent! Such a good feeling to be able to be able to problem solve, and to be able to do it successfully, overnight? Priceless!!

    How old is she? Best options may vary if she's 5 or 14, for instance.

    Could you sell her for three times what you paid? What sort of dent would that put in your debt, or would it give you a nest...

    I tried it yesterday on one who was suddenly deeply committed to not letting me touch her ears (so of course I had to check for a tick in there plus make my point that she really doesn't get to train...

    So glad to hear he's on his horse again!

    Any idea what it is about kickboxing and skiing which put them off limits?? True, it's idle curiosity on my part, but I am curious. Is it concern about...

    heh - I learned to cram Tues nights for Weds pre-lesson inspections by Mrs Ligon. Eventually I learned that keeping up with the cleaning through the week made the Tues prep easier.

    Learned a...

    Call around, but a rough ballpark for fewer than 15 students is probably around 7-800 bucks. 30 students around $1400, and so on, iirc.
    My insurance has never asked where the helmets come from,...

    Art by Sisyphus!

    but yes, seeing and creating the ongoing improvements, moving towards an ideal, which will never - quite - be realized, it is satisfying. :)

    Make sure you start him back with long slow distance work, and progressively increase his work load, including lighter days for recovery. I don't have data on supplements, but I know lack of base...

    I put some of my lights on dimmers, so I can do night check w low light, or have just a little light in a stall if I'm keeping an eye on a horse.

    Also did four floodlights in my grooming area so...

    Ration balancers are generally grain free, IME.
    Here's a link I just found with a good description of their use, plus links to a bunch of different brands of balancers. ...
  17. Thanks.

    Thanks.

    There are good arguments/reasons to choose either event as a prep. Historically I would say terrain plays into the XC courses more at FENCE and Southern 8ths than at the Fork (which has terrain but...

    Trilogy Talisman??

    Just curious - I recently bought a Trilogy Amadeo dressage saddle which I am loving. Really beautiful balance for me. 4 out of 5 people I've had try mine have instantly sat better in it too. So of...

    If you lose power and have to carry water, you can put a trash bag in a trash can (or water tub, or muck tub), fill the trash bag with water, then tie the bag shut (or use a rubber band or twist tie)...

    Lots of great advice and thoughts here.
    One thing I haven't seen mentioned - time change happens in March. If waiting 5 or 6 weeks will make consistency easier, consistency will likely make...

    My pallet forks were about $150 from Northern Tool, and they are the easiest thing in the world to attach to a tractor bucket. There is a lip which fits easily around the bottom edge of the bucket,...

    Before I got my pallet forks I moved large bales sometimes (very carefully) suspended from my FEL bucket by webbing. Put the webbing across your truck bed so the straps go underneath the bales and...

    If you're on a definite timeline this tip probably won't help, but for those of us who always could find a use for a couple (dozen)truckloads of dirt - I have had very good luck stopping to chat with...
