    Before the conversation predictably sidetracked into insults on me, I asked what people thought of Maggi Moss on social media about breakdowns, drugs, slaughter guys picking up at the tracks, naming...

    LOL, this is such silliness. So now I know not only nothing about racing but also nothing about endurance riding. Ridiculous.

    Ugh, I was not speaking from my perspective..I was summarizing what I'd seen Maggi Moss, a very successful player in racing, write on social media. But instead it turned into insults on ME and...

    I would assume because the horse is about 10, has made many, many starts and probably has wear and tear and the claiming game at AQU has a lot of shady characters who use the horses up. We've all...

    MM is someone who is undeniably in the industry and VOICING her concerns. Not a lot of other big names seem to be. Just an observation.

    I have a question for the people here who get angry/defensive when a poster here gets upset about racetrack deaths? How do you guys feel about Maggi Moss? She is very successful in the industry and...

    I wonder, is there any market for the endurance horses in the middle east, when they are no longer useful for racing? Is there any type of recreational endurance, trail or pleasure riding they could...

    Yes, I agree, $6k debt is an amount that should be manageable for most people, I am just off on a tangent.

    I *wasn't* sleeping well back in the day, it was a crappy position to be in but I learned my lesson and I am a different person today.. In my case, when I quit paying my bills, I was in a very tough...

    Haha! I admit to frozen meals (think Trader Joes or Lean Cuisine) 3 or 4 nights a week. If I do "cook" its something like a baked potato, pasta with jarred sauce, rice or quinoa with frozen...

    The debt WILL go away if you ignore it, it will just take 7 years from last activity/contact. 7 years seems like a long time but in my case it flew by and I was able to get up to an "excellent"...

    I agree $6k should be payable, not reason for bk. I got into trouble with credit cards about 12 or so years ago. It was a combination of bad luck, the economy and stupid decisions. I eneded up...

    I'm one of those who can't cook at all. For one, I don't know how to and wouldn't even know where to start learning. And I can't imagine all the time and energy it would take...even chopping up...

    AFAIK, breakdown rates have always been higher at AQU than the other NYRA tracks and this same thing happened just a couple of years ago. I think its mostly due to the lower level (low level for NY)...

    I don't temember seeing anything "illegal" in the cideo (besides the immigration stuff and its challenging to prove anything in court anyway). Its not illegal to run sore or lame horses in the...

    I never knew which side to put on the horse and I've used both. I love mine, never caused any problems for my horses and lots of my friends use them also. Keeps those expensive saddle pads...

    I've never heard of anyone leaving tack on after riding. When I'm done, either at home or an endurance ride, I just want to get untacked and put stuff away and be done. If its cold, I would throw a...

    I agree...if you want a purebred dog, especially a small one, most likely you will pay for it because there is demand. I also agree about people accepting behavioral issues in small dogs that would...

    Up until just recently I thought PETA was just a group of ultra liberal, kind of nutty but overall well meaning people who didn't have much actual experience being around animals. I had no idea they...

    I am 45 and no symptoms of menopause at all. I'm really dreading it though, because I don't feel "old" or even middle aged...I think I am a late bloomer in life and besides a few signs of aging, I...
