    I've bought and sold western saddles on TackTrader. And they sold quickly, too, but they were a name brand that's desirable now. Not sure about an older saddle. Who made it?

    Yep, this is nuts. I've vetted two horses that didn't have clean PPE's and I decided not to go ahead with the purchase. It cost a lot, with travel and time, but I knew going in that there was a...

    I'm in the market for a GPS, so I hope lots of people chime in with suggestions. I had the Garmin Etrex, too, and I gave up on trying to use it. It drove me nuts! Now, a few years later, I'm...

    I dealt with awful mud and muck for 8 years, then last fall I finally bit the bullet and had the HoofGrid system put in the runs that go from my stalls, under the 12 foot overhang and out to the end...

    I've seen your situation before, but it wouldn't work for me. My trainer, who shows on the national level and travels a lot to shows, always adjusts the bill to account for when she's out of town. ...

    My late husband wasn't into horses, didn't really understand the appeal.

    But he never complained about the cost or the time, because he knew they were important to me. We were transferred to...

    In 1989 we lived an hour east of San Francisco. When the big earthquake hit my son was riding his QH mare in a lesson. She stopped in her tracks and would not move. He was urging her on, but she...

    Sounds like you're burned out. Take a break. Even if you don't come back to full involvement with horses, you still can get your fix with your retired horse.

    If you want him back, get him back. I think it really is that simple. When you lease a horse and ride him and show him and love him, it's with the risk that you will lose that ride because the...

    I lent not only my trailer but my truck to my neighbor. I got them back and the trailer was fine but he had dropped the tailgate onto the jack handle and there was a huge dent on the tailgate. Then...

    I don't touch a horse that I don't know on the face when I first meet them. I will stroke their neck or shoulder and let them sniff my hand. After all, I don't know if they'll nip at me and it...

    I did it in college and they're still my close friends today. But I've seen it go very badly, too, so be careful.

    I had a neighbor we all called "Speedo Man". He was always outside, in his teeny little speedo. Believe me, he didn't have the body for it, either.

    It's violent. I have a 9 year old grandson and I don't think he should see it. My daughter saw the original when it came out on video, and we could fast forward through the scary or gory parts. ...

    I saw it last night. I enjoyed it. Was it as awe inspiring as the original? No. But it was way better than JP2 and JP3. Chris Pratt is really good. It was what I expected it to be. The theater...
