    I don't pick my lane based on traffic. I pick my lane based on where I will need to be further up the road. I will take an extra minute or two of commute if it means less jostling later when I need...

    It sounds like some things need to be in writing so that everyone is on the same page. Days in the barn, expected chores (All horses need stalls picked, etc).
    Also, you might want to look at the...

    I was always taught that at the lower heights (below 3'), the add was not to be penalized. If the add is consistent and planned, it was treated as the horse doing the step.

    Perhaps just a Dee with a curb attached to the bridle somehow just to 'psych' the horse out. I have once or twice met a horse who will run through anything without a curb. Like a horse who...

    Shoes will not protect you from Kenyan Africanized Killer Obamabees. I hope it is not an Obamouse.

    Ace is effectively a mood enhancer. It needs to be given while the horse is calm. If he is already up, it will exacerbate that.

    If you're fine with it, go with it. Too much emphasis is put on perfect lawns, anyway.

    Have not heard of such a beast. Maybe a smallish (HA!) 4-horse head to head? Put ponies in the front 2 and alley and carriage in the back? Unless your horses are smaller, the 3 across in a 6-horse...

    Hit it with some taco-type seasonings, cook, slice thin, and make fajitas.
    Meh meats are all we can afford, so this is done quite frequently.

    Up to $100,000 for a mare whose breeding she does not know yet? Well, obviously she is holding on to patent technology for interstellar travel, so money would not be an issue.

    Based on the word...

    Don't worry. The horse is yours.
    Just don't make a scene. As alibi said, don't count him as sound until he really is. When you debut him and the questions come, just be honest but vague. "Oh,...

    This one was not too crazy, just a case of "Black Stallion Syndrome". When I got pregnant, I considered selling my older gelding to cut down on numbers. A man came to see him and horse was...

    Exactly. It is a procedure with risks like any other. As DH's Doc pointed out, you are actually telling a normal function of the body to stop working. BUT, the complications and risks were, for...

    Spouse is a good legal, all-encompassing term. The definition of marriage has broadened. It makes sense the terminology would, as well.

    Is his head as broad as it looks in that pic? If so, I say St. Brenard mix x pit.

    I had an Appendix QH filly who had been started, then sustained a stifle injury, so would not be show-ring sound. I had her advertised as a broodmare prospect or trail horse for an experienced...

    DH had his done for $900 total. $100 for the initial consult, $800 for the surgery. It was the equivalent of 2 years of my BC. Best money we ever spent!
