    Well, she hasn't tried going after the goldfish yet :lol:.

    I would have done the same thing if those were my horses. It is absolutely not safe to try to grab a strange dog in that situation, and sometimes they can't be scared off. Much better to shoot the...

    Foam pads are your friend here. Get a piece of cut to size foam pad and cut out a piece big enough to overlap your hardware by about an inch. You may have to layer it to get the right height to...

    Depends entirely on the horse and the environment. My current horse is shod on all 4 and goes 6 weeks in spring/summer/early fall and 8-10 weeks late fall/winter based on hoof growth. My previous two...

    The quality seems to be fairly inconsistent. Mine have lasted 60+(?) rides and a 3 mile hike over a fairly rough trail when my mare came up lame on a trail ride and I had to get off and walk her back...

    A properly cared for leather girth will last longer than a synthetic, but it is really down to what your horse does best in. The synthetic girths are (usually) less expensive, which sort of makes up...

    There's enough to do in Lex for an entire vacation, let alone a long weekend. I was in Kentucky last year for the Oaks and the Derby and did a couple of days in Lexington before going to Louisville....

    So cool! I wonder how prices/quality will compare with what is available already though.

    :lol:This cracked me up! All I can think of is someone passed out surrounded by partially eaten eggplants.

    As an aside, I adore each and every veggie on that list. Tomatoes are my favorite: I eat...

    The third horse in the ring (the chestnut) would be welcome in my barn any time. What a gorgeous horse!

    I have the ovation girth and love it. I've heard great things about the tsf girths, but haven't tried one yet since the ovation worked out so well.

    I've never owned either brand, but I've ridden in both and definitely prefer the thorowgood. They just seem to be built better and out of better materials than the wintecs. Of course, the fit, for...

    I'm with Laurierace on the MRI. With spinal problems, other than showing fractures, xrays are almost completely useless.

    I fractured C5 in 2011 and have a free floating chip on the anterior side....
  14. Sticky: I read this one because I love mysteries and...

    I read this one because I love mysteries and figured it was worth a shot since it was free anyway. I've since bought and read all of the series so far. They're fun, fast paced reads.

    The main...

    Well, sort of. The thing is, most warmblood registries have been around a long time and the resulting horses registered are the result of generations of selective breeding to get the desired traits....

    Age is not nearly as important as overall behavior and training. A well trained 10 year old will be much more predictable than a green 3 year old, but don't make your decision on age alone. My 14...

    I used to ride an appy colt who liked to "swing in the breeze":lol:. He would masturbate if left to his own devices in his stall or pasture, but under saddle he just seemed to like the extra airflow....

    Just because the show is at the OP's barn doesn't mean that the barn is putting it on. The barn may just be the venue. Other than a few schooling shows put on by local trainers at their own...

    I have three Roma pads with the wicking lining (two dressage one AP). They are on the heavy side, but wick well. I tend to use them most in the winter, when it's harder to bathe a sweaty horse.

    I...

    I swim alone frequently, but I am a strong swimmer and I can float with zero effort if I need a rest. That being said, if the ocean was warm enough to swim in here, I probably would not swim alone in...

    You can go without braiding if the mane is neat. The jacket depends on the show. If the weather is hot, it is not unusual for coats to be waived. I'd contact the show office to find out the dress...

    I love Pyramid's Apricot Ale and Hefeweizen, raspberry and apple lambics (the cherry ones are too sweet for me) Lindeman's is the easiest lambic brand to find, but my favorites are from Mort Subite;...

    I'm going to throw celiac disease out there too, even though it may be a longshot.

    Your symptoms are almost exactly the same as what one of my good friends was going through since high school up...

    Darn, if only they had them in wide... No way could I cram my calves into the fulls. :no: If we had a halfway decent boot shop around here I'd buy them anyway.

    I'm so sorry. (((((Hugs)))))
