    Got any Amish in your area? I send all of mine to one Amish trainer for a month or two to ride and drive before they go to the regular trainer. However, not all Amish are created equal- my guy is...

    The horse owner was probably right.

    As a rule, we don't shoot random dogs. However, 2 have been turned into buzzard bait on my farm, and a third would have if DH had grabbed the gun a little...

    Based on costs for last year, ~54 cents/day. I buy my equipment from China (wicked cheap, I just have to wait for the slow boat to get here), and juice components from a place in the US. I spent...

    Well aren't you special! Maybe you should train your horses to tie and hang out with a higher class of horsemen, because I've only seen it (loose horses running amok) a handful of times and I'm old....

    I acknowledge than none are specific to vaping, and admit that long term effects of vaping are unknown. However, nicotine is not the monster that people like to make it out to be. Smoking is.

    I'll...

    Citations?

    Just nicotine all by it's lonesome, not smoking.

    Former smoker here. Been vaping for 2+ years.

    Do I think it's stupid for anybody that's not a smoker to start vaping? Absolutely.

    Do I think it's less harmful than smoking? Absolutely.

    Do I...

    It was hard to watch because my computer sucks and the video kept stopping. I'm not crazy about the circle when they come in nor the chain popping as they're trotting. I'm relatively sure it's more...

    What breed of horse? Very typical for some of the "hot" breeds like ASB, Arab, some Morgans. They like to be "afraid". They're really not.

    Anyway- my reaction to something you described is...

    How 'bout "Thank you for the generous gift, SMIL. It's absolutely beautiful- I love the color, shape and size. You might find this strange, but for some reason the texture of the leather bothers me....

    My local shelter gives away(yes, free) ferals as long as you promise to feed them.

    We stopped in one day just to see what they had and they practically insisted I take this one female that they...

    I didn't read all the replies, but here's my take on it.

    Some of them are legit, in other cases it's a crock-o-shit. I think Americans are too hung up on "dog germs" and dogs should be allowed to...

    I have a Galaxy S3. I just got it maybe 2 months ago because I really needed to be able to text at work for work and my flip phone just wasn't doing it.

    Mostly I use it to call or text, but I...

    So what color is your new car? ;)

    Just curious- how hard is it to find a mechanic for such a beast? I have a VW and in my area I had a hell of a time finding someone to replace the timing belt....

    I sold a puppy to a guy a few states away. He called me directly on the phone, spoke American English, told me he doesn't "do" email, and wanted to...

    Agreed. Wrapping myself in bubble wrap to feed, water, clean stalls, scratch a neck, give a peppermint, etc., etc. doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun. I tend to wear steel toe boots on the rare...

    Can I join in the whining? I'm in KY and haven't cut my hay cut either. We got about 30 squares and 3 big rounds when we took a chance and mowed a tiny bit in May to check the equipment. Glad we...

    I'll play. One day I was riding an older ASB mare along the road to some trails. She was game but not silly. A couple of teenagers came roaring down the road on their 4 wheeler. As soon as they saw...

    I usually just say no, I don't have an "anybody can ride" horse. Then I show them a picture of one of my Saddlebred show horses- a trot picture from the show ring. They quickly realize I don't have...

    Maybe so, but that doesn't mean she's not in danger. She's just a kid with a 52 yr old man. That's more than a little creepy in my book.
  24. VA peeps! Look- missing teen and horse!

    I didn't see this posted yet and it came across my Facebook feed. Her horse is very distinguishable.

    I'd call it a "need". We have lots of wet which makes all but the best outdoor rings mostly unusable a lot of the time. Unless you ride very early morning or close to sundown in the summer, the sun...
