    I would do this (in addition to what beowulf said):

    - Give her a carrot when you catch her.

    - Lead her to the place where you are going to soak her foot and present her with a tub with a...

    Beautiful -- and what a lot of space! Your barn siding is very pretty.

    Thanks for the update; it's nice to see progress, and beautiful barn photos are always fun. Your location is great, too. ...

    It might be a little spendy on that big of an area, but don't forget my favorite, which is Blume Farm's solution in her shade structure/run-in: the treated 2x4s with stone screening tamped over. I...

    Mike, you never disappoint.

    That is pretty interesting.

    I rented a Ford Focus for two weeks and I loved it. It used fuel efficiently, it was zippy and responsive to drive, and I felt like it was designed ergonomically for me. The seats were comfortable...

    The only real question here is, do you have any way of treating horses?

    I ran the numbers for myself as well and came up with pretty much the same conclusion. In addition to labor costs, the cost of a mortgage was huge in my area because location is critical. That...

    I was eight or nine the first time I fell off. I was riding bareback, galloping in a field, and had that same slow-motion sensation that you did, as I started to slide sideways and realized I...

    That article was funny. I don't think that even an insurance company would pay $16 million for the Green Monkey today. Horses don't appreciate unless their performance merits it, and I doubt that...

    American Pharoah's time was the 7th fastest Belmont Stakes race since 1926, when the distance was set to 12 furlongs.

    2015 American Pharoah 2:26.65

    I was disappointed to miss the shot of American Pharoah wearing his blanket of white carnations. There were several shots of a groom carrying the blanket while AP was being led, but I wanted to see...

    I thought it was a slow race because he was running so easily. In fact, it was fast. He made it look so effortless.

    Only a few horses have run faster in the Belmont Stakes since the distance...

    He is a cutie, but a cutie as in, a baby. He looks so young. To me, he looks very unremarkable, in a way which reminds me of things I read about Seabiscuit (except that Seabiscuit had...

    The 1901 BS was won by Commando in 2:21.00, faster than Secretariat's time, so I don't think that race was 13f. According to Wikipedia, the race was a mile and five furlongs (13f) from 1867 to 1873...

    The thing about land is that it is really difficult to get financing in California, so your pool of buyers is small. Are there any comps in the area which would give you an idea of whether the 1/3...

    Blind Luck -- Why the Low Sales Price?

    Blind Luck
    What a great mare! She won 12 races — 6 of them Grade I races. Best E figure was 121. Raced 22 times and was out of the money (worse than third) only once. She earned $3,279,520 in...

    This topic makes me a little annoyed. Not at the OP, because she just wants to promote her breed, but at the breed organizations who haven't stepped up. As gumtree said (much more kindly and...
