    I'm not sure why you are trying yourself up in knots over a guy you've never had a problem with and who isn't even taking care of your cats.

    Generally, if Person A and only Person A has a problem...

    Current gelding:

    Dear World, Today I found 18 edible things and 1,857 things that do not appear to be edible. This ratio seems off to me. Does it seem wrong to you? Let's try again tomorrow....

    Nope. Heck, you don't even have to buy the items at the store any more before you abuse the return policies.

    You can buy an item used, decide it doesn't fit, exchange it for new items at the same...

    Bah. Amateur wild animals.

    Binky the Polar Bear knew how to take care of idiot trespassers.

    And Anchorage/Alaska made that bear a hero for it, too.

    Is it a Dressage ad?

    Sound for schooling upper level movements does not mean it's sound to compete upper level. It may be capable of doing things individually but not stringing them together in a...

    I agree email is probably more appropriate than FB. There are plenty of people that limit their FB usage and are just not interested in connecting with total strangers on it.

    Similarly, be...

    You will become a better rider--potentially the type of rider who COULD ride a horse like her--if you sell her now, buy a horse you can ride now, and invest your time and energy into increasing your...

    I've weeded out a few in the initial search/interaction (phone/email) phase, but I've never had a problem with a seller in person.

    They are relatively common in England, so if you want one, check out some of the English tack shops and/or google for a brown numnah. You should find plenty of options.

    Either will work. Use it sparingly.

    It blistered my mare's armpits so badly they took weeks to heal. I realize that's a known issue with MTG, but I"d used it on that horse before without a...

    As long as you are up front during the interview/hiring process, it should be fine. Depending on the way the company accrues vacation time, you may have to do some/all of it as leave without pay,...

    I will echo what others have said about finding a counselor/priest/professional to talk to and not trying to work this out on your own (or with online advice).

    In addition, if you haven't already,...

    If you want a quick in and out of a lot of stops, a cruise is good.

    If you would rather stop at fewer locations, but spend a few days in each one so you can see more, definitely take the ferry.

    I had a slant load Runabout a few years ago and loved it.

    Light, easy to pull, horses hauled very well in it. Had the features I needed for basic trailering out to lessons/shows, without a bunch...

    It's not USEF's circus, not their monkeys. If the show wants help and advice from USEF, they need to pay the fees, take the necessary steps, and get sanctioned.

    If the show were sanctioned and...

    I've never seen horses really react to earthquakes before they struck, although if they were big enough they were sometimes a little startled by the movement.

    However, I did have a cat who could...

    The cat sounds rabid and has attacked two separate people, aggressively, biting one.

    You do know the type of "help" the cat is likely to get, right?

    Yes, it's unfortunate that the cat is sick....

    Bridle numbers?

    There are nefarious bridle number plots out there in the show world?

    I am even more out of touch than I thought.

    I keep my extra barn stuff in a steamer trunk at home.

    The cost to buy + what it would cost to refurbish is much more than what a purpose-built track trunk would cost. And it wouldn't hold up to...

    It is a factor for the first year, though. You have to get people into the ring that first time, and if you put too many one-time fees in place before they can do that, the short term cost/benefit...
