    Oh, I hope it is Dark Horse! I requested it from inter-library loan, so we will see in a few days if Lady Eboshi is right.

    I love Jean Slaughter Doty, especially The Crumb. I always wanted to...

    Horses are a classic subject for art! Whistlejacket, Marengo, Degas at the racetrack...

    I appreciate the question, "why is it art" because it made me think of phrases like "poetry in motion"...

    I was thinking about this exactly! River flooding is great for the soil, but lake flooding, coastal flooding just don't have the same benefits. I think it's not only the nutrients in the river...

    I find land management endlessly fascinating.

    HungarianHippo and JoZ both nailed it: steep, with poor soil. Fencing, like Sid said, would also be a problem. It was supposed to be "horse...

    Pasture that is in flood zone?

    Front of the property, where the structures would be, is not in flood plain. Back of property, where pasture would be, is in FEMA Zone A. Land is near, but not directly adjacent to, a lake.

    I would be annoyed if you did this for free, then changed your mind and tried to charge.

    I would try a snaffle with a port, like a Myler, or like the bit Winding Down posted.

    This makes perfect sense if your horse is already in a program and in training! Leasing a made show horse, that makes sense to me.

    Has anyone ever leased a horse that has been sitting in a...

    I think this is the original problem in the "bonkers lease" thread.
  18. Spinoff: bonkers lease - who pays for training?

    In a lease situation, who pays for training / pro rides?

    Does the type of lease make a difference (full, half, free, lease-to-own)?

    This is a great point-- in my case, I don't actually spend nearly that percent on horses-- it's less than half that! But I am a young professional making some positive life changes, so I am thinking...
