    What you want is a tall order, but I don't see why it's not possible at the lower levels. I did 25 mile endurance rides on my 15.3 QH and he was a consistent top ten in the SE/MW area. I had to be...

    Thanks to multiple polar votexes this winter, my fingertips are splitting wide open and I can't get them to heal. I apply lotion and bag balm like crazy, but once a crack has started, it's hard to...

    I thought of that but it's not really possible to drug her when I'm gone, which is when she's done most of the damage. I will probably end up crating her indoors while I'm at work now, but I still...
