    Good for Boston!

    Here's hoping they don't reconsider DC/ DMV area.

    The absolute best are the ones who complain about what they get for $150/month. You'd think they were paying $1500/month. Even better is if they can't pay board at that level. Honey, if you can't...

    Another possibility would be to go over the very dark side - saddleseat - where being high headed and sassy is truly appreciated. Just a thought.

    My mare had a large gash (5-6") that the skin holding the sutures sloughed off. The second vet, a week later, gave me some Granulex spray, that's all I did with it, plus some pink Wipe fly goop...

    I don't know if that's really a good thing or not. In a few years, I could probably write the OP's post.

    If my sister asked me to help them find a horse after sending me the ads the OP described,...

    :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Sounds like a typical sport horse person. If they aren't comatose, they are scared. Go to an Arab show in person. Please. Learn to read some body language...

    Definitely check your address in the service finder in the article. It's pretty accurate. I wanted to do the antenna thing, but I essentially live in a hole so it doesn't work. Depending on your...

    You missed my point. I have no problem with the discussion here or the back story provided.

    My point is that the OP's original draft email was overly long for what she needed to say. Way too...

    Why do people feel the need to write a novel to convey a simple change in a business relationship?

    The OP reminds of the one page novella my mother wrote for my BO when board went up. Maybe I'm...

    This bears repeating. A college education is not required. Perusing several ag textbooks at your leisure would get you the same benefits at a fraction of the cost.

    You have a good starting plan...

    As I implied before, your mind is made up. There is nothing anything anyone can say to change it.

    If you've seen *actual* abuse, and not done anything about it, then you are a pretty sorry excuse...

    I don't know, most of the older seasoned horses I know are pretty good scammers. They know how to do the job, but also know how to get out of the job. I would be less inclined to believe that an...

    The Boggs boys were sleazy. I've heard many tales much worse than that, long before Psyche was born. There are sleazy folks in every discipline. The Jaynes come to mind in the H/J world. They...

    I see it done all the time, not in a lesson barn, but the Ams. Studs are treated like every other horse & also are around mares.

    Here's your story. Saddlebred stud is treated like every other...

    No, they don't have souls. They don't go to heaven or hell either.

    I was trying to remember anything from years of religion classes or Masses that mentioned animals having souls and couldn't come...

    I've been around ASBs forever. A stud chain is usually standard for EVERY HORSE, mare, stallion, or gelding, in an ASB show barn. It was standard equipment for the ASBs I've known in run of the...

    I said the same thing just last week!

    I came across a picture of Aladdin last week. He was a pretty horse & looked like a horse.

    Given all of that, it sounds like you really just can't afford it. Keep saving your pennies, it will happen in due time.

    If your dressage horse hasn't sold in 2 years, he's probably over-priced.

    I found that any movie I wanted to see was available on DVD.





    WETV has been running the original Law & Order episodes like 3 nights a week.

    Which seems since fair since I consider anyone who randomly passes judgment on a situation they know slightly more than nothing about to be an A-hole. :)

    Most insurance companies have a list of specialists that are their preferred providers.

    I would avoid any local "Top Doc" lists. IME they really aren't that great. My first OS was on one and put...

    If one of those fields appeals to you, do it. I work in a pretty male dominated world. For the most part, a half-way competent woman will be promoted. IME at shipyards, a woman in the trades is a...

    An equine studies degree is not going to fix your riding, not by a huge amount. By that I mean you're not going to come in as a B circuit yellow ribbon rider and leave challenging the Reed Kesslers...

    I thought the picture was kind of neat, in an artsy way. Reminds me of the prints of old English runners.

    Because to most people in the horse world, it's a huge red flag that you don't actually KNOW anything about horses. At least that's how the trainers I know feel about them.
