    Back in the early 90's we purchased some land near Concho, about an hour north of Show Low. Because such a huge area had been subdivided into 40 acre parcels, there was miles of dirt roads to ride...

    I know someone who was at the protest. He did not agree w/the actions of the rancher but he more strongly disagreed w/the BLM's actions. So he went to the protest.

    I have ridden with a rope halter with the reins tied underneath the jaw to make it like a hackamore. I've also used a rope halter set up like a side pull. Both are ok but I found that the halter...

    I watch it some, but almost always record it so I can skip the commercials. I like the Tom Seay show because I can see places that I won't ever be able to go see myself. I tolerate the infomercial...

    ChocoMare, how did you get there? Mine now have SmartPak Slow Feed Nets and finish 7.5-8.5 lbs of hay (mostly bermuda) in about 3 hours. That is slower then loose hay, but still not a very long...

    The 3 stallions listed above were all excellent Morgans. They were somewhat more stretchy then the ideal Morgan, but still definitely Morgans.

    Back in the very early '80's, my husband each got a Fallis saddle. They never really fit any horse we put them on. And at the time I did not know enough to know that the stirrups were too far forward...

    Stonewall

    I am very happy w/my Stonewall. Jackie is great to work with, also. It is lightweight, about 12 lbs. It is very secure for trails. It saved me a couple of times when my horse pulled a major spook.
