    Sunset, I don't have an easy answer for you. I sympathize, and like Gestalt, could not devote my existence to tending someone with a self-inflicted problem.

    During the few months we lived and boarded in Bakersfield, CA, my barn friends and I occasionally rode from the boarding barn to a fairly close restaurant/bar. You could identify the restaurants...

    Kwill, with sufficient sunscreen, it should be possible to show him during the day, but it has to be sweatproof. Otherwise the horse turns to ashes in mid-class, which is very embarrassing, and not...

    I like the vampire stallion idea. That's truly original. It's going to be hard to show him unless you buy sunscreen by the gallon, though. Five-gaited stakes are usually in the evening division,...

    I am so pleased that all of you can see the love these people have for each other. Some of these ranches are 80 miles from town, and they have to rely on each other in good and bad times.
