    It does, but it's also a different kind of work out. Deep and/or heavy footing requires a great deal more fitness in the ligaments.

    I'd certainly condition a horse to go in many different types...

    Sheeit. I don't know. The dutch guy with the lusciousness while the Italians were all about perspective.

    I thought it was a beautiful movie. It was so pretty and clever in a way that a movie can be (as opposed, to say, still art or sculpture or a novel), that you have to love it as an example of the...
  4. "(Getcher) money for nuthin' and your CATS for free" Fostering!

    This thread is a community-generated PSA plugging cat fosterage.

    The modified lyrics from a song about the perks of being a rock star clearly apply to fostering cats/kittens, too. But perhaps...

    I question her ability to write at all. "Tow the line"? That's not the expression she means/needs to convey the idea there.

    I will have you know, however, that the modern HO isn't a traditionalist and probably doesn't know/respect/worship traditions. Modern HO might think that he who writes the check shapes the mane.

    I haven't seen a running braid that stays tight all day. But I'll go to my first Arab sport horse show soon, so maybe I'll learn about those. A loose running braid looks *bad* to me.

    No. You can't create the padding with these things that you can with shavings. I see why an old skooler would try 15 bags. Were I in charge of things and had to use pellets, I'd do what Flypony...

    WHY?
