    Spinoff question - are those number pads to be used in addition to bridle numbers, or do they replace bridle numbers?

    Dang, I'm a flipping idiot and I typed in the email address wrong. :cry:

    I got a nylon & mesh hanging organizer for $3 from Target. They marketed it for shoes, but really it's for polo wraps. :D I've seen similar things at IKEA and the container store, so it shouldn't be...

    I do regular subcutaneous injections on myself with a 1" needle. I rotate between belly and thigh for injection sites, and obviously it's not quite as deep as what you're doing. But still not...

    Trieste is near Lipica, Slovenia, where the Lipica Stud Farm is (birthplace of the Lippizan.) I similarly piggybacked on my DH's business trip to the region a couple of years ago, and took some...

    The two I was going to recommend were C&E and Drexler. Have used both and been happy!

    $90 for a trim and reset sounds pretty good to me. My horse is shod in front, barefoot behind, and it's cost me anywhere from $150 to $225 to have his feet done. I'm in the midwest. I know there are...

    I also think I know the barn. This is an odd situation, because as far as I know, there's no immediate financial pressure to sell, but the owners also don't know horses and aren't contactable by any...

    I'm not sure that I would label this horse as suffering PTSD just yet. He's in a new barn, with new people, and a new routine. All horses spook at least some of the time. He may be spooking at things...

    I've got rheumatoid arthritis. Humira worked great for me for a short period of time. There are a number of biologics available now, so if you don't get a good response from this one, you've got many...

    I had one of these.... Big floofy craft pom-poms in the ears were my friend. (I know there's horse versions, they just cost 10x more than the ones at the craft store.)

    If he tolerates ear poms,...

    My latest and greatest find is Noble Horse gloves. My wedding rings are hard on gloves (not huge stones, just a pokey-outie engagement ring setting & a not totally smooth eternity ring), and that...

    I literally just called up the barn of one of the biggest names in the country to arrange a tour, and was stunned by the professionalism and politeness. And they have no idea who I am. How refreshing...

    My last reply was a little bit doom & gloom - sorry, having one of those days. :( It ain't all bad! I'm just feeling frustrated getting my own health sorted out. I just wanted to add that if you're...

    I've got rheumatoid arthritis. I've been on Humira, I'm currently on Enbrel, and I'll be switching to Cimzia as soon as my insurance approves it. I wish I'd started a biologic sooner. The side...

    An end stall for a stallion is a pretty reasonable request, IMHO. To me, it sounded like she was mentioning her offers of saddle pads, polos, and coaching as a way of saying that she's been making an...

    I like Ovation helmets - of the cheap helmets, they fit my big head the best. I have a white Ovation protege helmet that I use for schooling in summer - it's very light and well vented. I believe...

    Have you tried The Container Store? They do ship if you don't have a store online, but I find it to be much easier to browse in person than to navigate the site.

    I got the book Pain Free by Pete Egoscue a couple of months ago. I'm sure it doesn't come close to replacing a live session, but it's a cheap and easy way to try it out. There are plenty of exercises...

    I love the foam roller I got at a sporting goods store, but the one I got from Target was pretty useless (too squishy to really get into the muscles.) If you only get one, I would get a 3ft long one....
