    Surprised by how much I like long-lining!

    So, Madame has made it clear, as she approaches 26, that work is really just no longer attractive as part of her current reality and she would prefer to transition to a gracious retirement. Of...

    Gosh! I love pellets! I wet them down for faster absorbency and so I don't roll around on them. If you keep them just barely damp, they don't get dusty and last days longer, and I find much less...

    I don't even know why the OP is posting this question, unless it's to torment those of us who live in areas where this is hard to find :-) Due to some mysterious computer error, I did not win...

    You are doing the right thing for them. Good on you, OP. You are doing exactly what they need from you. I bet they have had great lives, and they must have had some adventures/given you some...

    How is seller being "unreasonable?" Seller got back to you within the deadline/next business day -- maybe playing games, or maybe just didn't make this a priority until they absolutely had to...

    Has it been established that the OP's property is in a higher-crime or bad area? I understood that property values were rising and that they have very much enjoyed the area, until they saw this news...

    OP, I say this with the greatest love --- if you always listened to your head, you would not have horses or a farm. :-) In terms of whether to move, well, I am fairly sure that there will be a...

    Let us assume that if this boarder is lovely, one could have an adult conversation with her in which one explains that one is curious about her goals for boarding and riding after the barn changes...

    At the risk of having missed something obvious, I guess I would ask whether building a new roof makes more sense than trailering to a nearby indoor? (If there is no nearby indoor, well, there you...

    I say this with the greatest support for the OP --- OP, I'm not seeing why you are still riding the pony so much. Get up and go get a new saddle, or get a riser pad, and ride the horse, instead of...

    There goes my reputation....

    I just ordered and received my first very own lunge whip, which I ordered in neon pink because Horse definitely recognizes that a pink whip is a whip (horse formerly owned by a 10-yo girl; everything...

    If you are working more than 100 hours a week, you are probably too exhausted to deal with what is, in the grand scheme of things, "the small stuff." Get the trailer fixed and if you don't want to...

    We are encased in ice. Bah, humbug. This should melt, but if it snows before the ice melts, we will have snow on top of ice on top of frozen ruts and hoof-holes. Bah, humbug.

    I believe the pony is lame, judging from the way it is consistently holding up that one front hoof. Also, the pony to me looks very stiff all over; perhaps some massage/chiro to increase...

    My almost 26-yo has been on 1/2 pill prascend for several years, and was recently bumped up to the whole pill due to accelerating loss of topline muscle and just general "not looking as good as we...

    Does anyone know the name of a wound care product that, basically, looks like a patch of thin translucent skin, and you just kind of slap it over the wound and then bandage? It seems like a good...

    I would say that a number of losses are being compounded by your subconscious, and showing up as you grieve your horse. I would ask if you could not fight the grief, but give yourself a week where...
