    Thank you, LauraKY-- I knew it was in place during Iraq, but didn't realize it was for so long. I think it is sad that everything having to do with the military gets blown up into a performance of...

    Didn't, during the Iraq mess, the Bush administration put an end to ceremonial returning of remains at airports? Not intending to start a political argument, just trying to remember my facts...I...

    It is special because it is a dead soldier (or sailor or airman or marine) but the protocol, I'm sure, isn't formalized for most airlines. Additionally, the dead fly with the living daily, on...

    I currently drive 35 minutes one way, opposite from my home/work/shopping so 20 minutes would be a delight! I choose a barn based on care (feed, bedding, barn/turnout safety), conditions (turnout,...

    My 18 year old Paint has carried his tail to the left at the canter his whole life. Regardless of chiro, acupuncture and injections over the years and the like, it is just his way.

    Showidaho--The black metal pipe top rail is pretty obvious on the current fence, and the deer hop the 5 foot, t-post fence with hot rope on it right now. I try to keep a visual (rail or white...

    Half chaps-- you want comfort and familiarity for the first few rides. Clean breeches, tidy shirt (polo?) tucked in, helmet and gloves. Be early and listen, listen, listen. Say thank you. :) (as if...

    We have a fair number of T posts on the farm. Really, due to the wet here wood posts are a non-starter--they rot in under 8 years, regardless of treated, cedar...nothing seems to help. We chose the...

    If I were a boarder, I'd prefer a long, narrow run vs a small square one. My favorite barn had individual paddocks off the stalls that were 24 x 60 or so. Long enough to trot briskly around in,...

    Oh, I appreciate my trainer. When they get to sit down at the table (I set up, under the awning we all set up) for a cool drink after coaching the 3 or 4 clients (all adults) who are mucking stalls,...

    See, we told you it would be fine! Crying is recovery is no big deal--much better to the nurses then, say, projectile vomiting. :lol: Take it easy and get all the coddling out of this you can.

    Oh, no...I am so terribly sorry to hear this, Lauruffian. Hugs to you and your boys. Colic is pure evil--I lost my dear Calvin to it, my iron horse, my partner. It still hurts. Godspeed dear Tril!

    Oh, yes, the "no voice" deal! I had to do three days of parent-teacher conferences with that. Super special. Now I'm coughing so hard I'm retching and gagging. More superness! I blame the noxious...

    My DH is against the idea, wants to spend the $$ to put in matching posts....70+ of them! (at $17/each) The T posts just wouldn't "fit" even painted black. The sleeves are intriguing, but will come...

    No, really, the charges listed by OP in her first post are high by our PNW hunter/jumper show circuit (local or A) trainer/barn standards. One of the biggest/fanciest H/J barns charges $100/day for...
