  1. How's this for Catholic Church misogyny??!

    This week's missive from the new priest at a church in NJ. Upshot: women will go to hell for dressing in "skimpy shorts", "hot colors that may be perceived as enticing," and in general for "every...

    Not uncommon for me to find several dead bats a week at my place (we have a HUGE colony in the barn) and the state DNR assured me that it's not something to worry about. Young bats have a learning...

    You say there's electricity, but are you talking about plugging something into an existing outlet, or getting an electrician to hardwire a fixture? If the latter, plan on spending several hundred...

    i also have a separate policy for this kind of liability. Your standard homeowner's policy coverage limits are not likely sufficient for the kind of harm a horse can cause.

    This is why you have liability insurance and why they are your first call. If you don't have this coverage, your lawyer is your first call. Foot injuries are one of the most common cause of...

    Ahh, she was talking about the bike chain grabbing the LEG hairs. I seriously did not pick up on that. LOL

    um..... I am trying to picture a bicycle where that could happen. Or is it really, really long hair? :lol: :lol:

    Look, that one enjoys the look and feel of being cleanly shaven does not invalidate the OP's point. Completely non-functional changes to one's appearance are, at their core, something we do to "look...

    Can't offer stallion management advice, but using a stallion in the storyline carries huge risk of the story reading like a romance novel, written in code. You have to ask yourself what is it about a...

    For the poster who doesn't want to replace her totaled car: you can essentially buy the car back as "salvage" from the insurance company. So you get the payout, buy it back for a pretty low amount....

    It seems likely that the stress is not from the event itself, but from the act of hauling. All the prep, having to pack what seems like your entire barn, etc.

    Strangely enough, Botox is being...

    Don't respond to her demand, or to any claims mailed to you. If and only if you get a letter from her attorney or the court, then have your attorney respond.

    Addendum on CL / public posting method: I suppose if they can offer several references and you check them, then I'd feel ok about it.

    Given that you seem to have exhausted most of the normal routes. I'd consider flying someone in--any children or nieces or nephews of friends home from school? Contact the director of the nearest...

    We're talking about weights like you'd put on for doing aerobics or something? I'm not seeing the danger. I mean it seems silly if the instructor was thinking it would pull the rider's legs down...

    OP, i'm so sorry for the difficulty you've had, and this decision is a really tough one. You may find that you second-guess yourself-- chances are he will do his best to make you second guess...

    I'd go and watch a bunch of her beginner lessons, if you haven't already done that. It's good that you like the trainer and her style/values, but I'm not sure I understand the comment that this...

    Well, what does your training contract say about liability for injuries while at the trainers?

    Side notes: I would specifically amend that contract to address this new situation of him...

    I had the same thought-- who has that much time on their hands?? And if you did, why would you spend it indoors? But then again, someone not into horses could dismiss our hobby just as easily.

    I don't know what size operation you have, but something like this may pay for itself.

    Well, in a drastic shortage, you are going to pay more-- a lot more!-- and make compromises that may not be all that convenient. You're competing with everyone else in your region for a limited...

    A cattle farmer would probably be interested in the hay even if stemmy. Is the field large enough to bale? Do you have farmers who bale hay nearby? Wouldn't be worthwhile for them to bring the...

    I mean, there's no question that their reaction about calling the police is absurd if the facts are as presented and complete, and assuming she left the barn years ago on good terms, and that this...
