  1. Well, "she deserved it" and "she had it coming"...

    Well, "she deserved it" and "she had it coming" can mean pretty different things, so I'm actually not sure what you mean. And last time you said "nobody on the thread said she deserved it", I direct...

    Sounds like it might be time for a new tractor, and by new I simply mean "new to you."

    I have 45, 70, 80, and 100HP tractors. Not a single one younger than 30 years old (so not new and fancy),...

    I have a knack for knowing when things will go poof. ;)

    I agree with all the others. It's your choice to be woken up by these notifications. I cannot imagine NOT sending an email at like, 1am, because someone might be woken up by the notifications. It...
  6. No, I don't know anything about the situation,...

    No, I don't know anything about the situation, which is why I'm not hopping on the "she had it coming" bandwagon.

    But bottom line is that it's pretty gross for a bunch of adults to say a child...
  7. I'm sorry, is "the story" that you're referring...

    I'm sorry, is "the story" that you're referring to the post by the OTHER child who very clearly has an axe to grind? Or is there an actual post somewhere by a responsible adult that I am missing?
  8. Nope, but I don't think that anyone, particularly...

    Nope, but I don't think that anyone, particularly not a CHILD, "deserves" to get kicked in the face, as the "adults" on this board are so anxious to declare knowing exactly nothing about the...

    How nice that when some of ya'll fall off, it's in a lovely, dignified manner (perhaps you land on your feet?) and you get up calmly and take the reins of your horse, who has of course come...

    :lol::lol: It's all true!

    This is my favorite bit:

    "But when a horse kicks an eight-year-old with such force that its head comes off, you take the poor thing's weeping parents to one side and...

    Chiming in as an old house owner. Granted, mine is almost twice the square footage, but that budget would barely touch it if I truly wanted to strip down and re-do. (It's instead just been done piece...
  12. No, I'm not, so I'm not sure why you're taking...

    No, I'm not, so I'm not sure why you're taking offense. But admittedly, forgetting to say "consult actual owner of the door" is a big thing to leave out. ;)

    It's rarely as simple as "sand and...
  13. No, please. As a lover of old houses and someone...

    No, please. As a lover of old houses and someone who restores antique furniture as a hobby, the OP should NOT just attempt to stain the thing willy nilly. 1) matching stains is an art, and 2)...

    That flat, gouged out area will not come out with sanding. I mean, it will, but you will then have a flatter, deeper spot on the door to contend with.

    For the love of all that is holy, DO NOT...

    There are several vets in my area who do cows (and alpacas!) only for just those reasons. And by no trouble, they're talking about the owners. :lol: They find horse people to not be worth the time or...

    Don't they have office staff?

    I have ALWAYS had more luck with being a PITA for the office staff when I really need something....they're the ones who can get things done, and frequently already...

    To address two separate points:

    1) No, those sponsors are not TB-specific. But TB specific groups forged the relationships, offered the kickbacks, etc to make those sponsorships worth it for the...

    Had a horse do something similar at a barn I worked at, although he was upright. I was the one who found him, panicked, walked slowly to the barn so as to not panic him further, screamed for everyone...

    You made a seriously grave error in research and expectations if you thought that a 23yo TB broodmare was going to need nothing but "a little extra grain, maybe some shavings" to raise a foal.

    Solid state for sure. I immediately put them in my laptops, since I drop them frequently and have ruined at least one hard drive that way. :lol: The SSDs fare much better.

    The OTTB-specific classes have the money to back them and the horses to fill them.

    In my area, you could not fill an OTQH class. I have met exactly one. But you could do any of the multiple QH...

    As for this....WTF would you have done if the birth hadn't gone perfectly??!?!?

    I cannot even fathom thinking I'd get away with "maybe some extra grain"...

    He may remember you, but that still doesn't mean that his job doesn't depend on him asking for your zip code.
