    If you can't work things out with the dressage trainer, see if anyone in your area does vaquero-style horsemanship a la the Dorrances, Ray Hunt, Buck Brannaman. They all emphasize getting the...

    I love my Fabtron Lady Trail. The stirrups are set underneath you, so you can post - not out in front of you, forcing you into a chair seat and behind the motion of the horse. And it has a nice...

    OP, do you have a trainer? Someone who can supervise you while you learn to lunge him? I don't mean to scare you or be negative, but lunging involves a whole lot of line attached to a whole lot of...

    Oh, I agree with you. I hate the phrase "he's got your number." Because it does start people thinking about horses in a very inaccurate and unhelpful way. Kind of sets up an adversarial...

    I've sort of been in the real-life version of that plot line. The stallion was a gorgeous grey Andalusian who retired from Medieval Times. Everybody loved him, and he was used in lessons, but only...

    I think this is just the way some people have of describing it. But it's perfectly possible that the seasoned veteran has learned that acting in a certain way with a novice human earns him some rest...

    He is. :yes: At the trial lawyers' conventions, you can always find him by looking for a knot of people laughing like crazy. (It'd be hard to find him in a crowd otherwise - he's kind of vertically...

    Rahde? Mah horse and Ah will be enjoying mint juleps on the veranda instead.

    Till sometime in October.

    Seriously, would someone down there in hell please shut the door?

    I'd read it but for the author. When he stops killing dogs (Rose, Orson, etc) who make him a lot of money and then become inconvenient for him and writing books about it maybe I'll listen. Or not.

    OT, but I kept this situation in mind when I designed my farm. Horses have 24/7 access to shelter and can be fed and watered from outside their shelters and paddocks. DH isn't horsey, but he'll...

    Riding stables? I'd think most would have some older barn rats or working students who'd like to make some extra cash.

    I wouldn't give someone from CL access to my farm and animals while I was...

    Oh, I'm so sorry.:cry: I remember when you got him.

    Have to say the guidelines looked pretty reasonable to me. I used to be in the peach zone and yep, I was overweight. My horse is one heck of a lot happier and more willing now that my BMI is 22. ...

    I'm going to take a wild guess and say it's either saddle fit or some other problem with her back.

    Have you tried checking for back soreness by running a capped pen or hoof pick handle or...

    Wait, what? When do you contend Southerners should've been compensated for their slaves? And by whom? Before the war, by states refusing to enforce the Fugitive Slave Acts? Before the war by the...

    Very true. That's why that war is often referred to as a rich man's war and a poor man's fight.



    Maybe so. Part of my family comes from the remote southern Appalachians, a place called the...

    Well, yeah, but the state's right in question was the right to own slaves.

    We seceded because the US Government refused to enforce the Fugitive Slave Acts, under which slaves who made it to free...

    All I can say is that we have been witnesses to many miracles of God's grace here in SC over the past few weeks.

    The families of the victims demonstrated unimaginable grace by forgiving that...

    In SC, and 21 other states, there's a law that requires people convicted of certain sexually violent offenses to undergo psychiatric examination before release. If the doctors say the person is...

    They have a lot of room and company. I bet the overhead fireworks will scare them silly the first few blasts, but they'll run around and then they'll settle down and start grazing again soon. It's...

    Ah, COTH never fails when one is looking for support. :lol:

    All eight young ones are happily roosting in the hen house tonight. Along with my five adults. Despite the fact that the guys in the...

  24. Turned this year's chicks out in the pasture today

    Posting here so I don't go hovering over them.:lol:

    They're almost eight weeks old. My second batch.

    Last year's dozen are down to five now. Thanks to hawks (accounted for 1); deer dogs...

    Yes, even though I think OTTB's are not a good first horse for anyone - I know one who is an absolute sweetheart. She's not her owner's first horse, but she is a challenge.

    The great thing...
