    I'm sorry, but I do have to agree in kinder terms. This smacks AND reeks of manipulative behavior. You break things off, he escalates. He's not where you can check up on his story, so I would be...

    Renn/aissance, I've read that literature as well, and have also been a member of an online support group for something like 20 years. I think what you're saying is true, and I probably should have...

    OMG, my sister is the same way (she's in her 70's) and she's been known to lock ME out of the house when I ran out to the car for my suitcase. I had to pound on the door to get back in!

    I'd second...

    THAT cracked me up. And yes, fleas are everywhere - that is very weird.

    one thing I've noticed as I've gotten older is that REAL people tend to be...difficult. Quirky, sometimes frustrating, not easy to be around (not hard, just not that...intuitive about your needs and...

    Yup, exactly. I would (and did) choose losing everything to get out. I was able to see (after a very kind friend pointed it out to me) that my child was the one I really had to protect. Whether I...

    I swear, the horse market sucks until you want to BUY a horse, then they are going for big bucks, whatdidyaexpect?

    I've also had the priced too low dilemma - some people assume that they have...

    Not me, I got mine, and am still using them! Thank you so much!

    Typically, around the 1/2 hour mark is when my core muscles start to tire - in a lesson my instructor can almost tell time by when she has to start reminding me to steady my hands. And my daughter's...

    When I was looking for a new car I did that - rented a few models first. It was money well spent, as I learned that a Yaris was perfect for me, even though I went "uck" at first. That darned gas...

    Oh, and nothing against your non-riding status implied, btw, this just reminded me of something I remembered from my past :). When my daughter's old eventing horse was retired, he was still SO active...

    It sounds kind of like what they used to do with Breyer horses (and probably still do) - I just remember hearing about the Breyer horse "shows" and wondering????

    AK, it probably was, that just made me snicker - today my phone told someone that it was time to take my puppy out of the oven (pie). I figured it was a funny autocorrect, tbh

    yeahbut. I've had horses who had tricky canter departs and I "simply" (:P) retrained them to my cues. Even if I had to "bridge" the depart by training a voice cue on the lungeline first...

    I'm thinking, too, that if it's effective, and if people buy it, other companies will start making something similar or it will get wider distribution. I'm intrigued by the technology, but don't...

    Piggybacking on to this - I have two toy dogs (1- 10 lb, 1 - 20 lb) and want an economical yet safe alternative for travel for them. Any suggestions on what would be best? I'm not happy with just a...

    I've heard that too, but I wasn't letting her run around the house with 12" of tapeworm hanging out her butt! I had already wormed her, of course, so it probably was already dead and just shed in an...

    Yeah, I dunno why I felt the need to bring it up - I had been thinking about it lately as I was writing a grant.

    And I'm not knocking the rescues too much - they do an awesome job of temperament evaluation and matching (at least most of the ones in our area seem to with a few notable exceptions). But I'm just...

    Our shelter doesn't DO the whole straight to euthanasia, so that's kind of a moot point. I'm sorry the one in your area does, but many do not.

    And I won't argue about breeders responsibility, I'm...

    I'm bothered by the shelter only giving 3 days to locate the owner. Ours gives 5, and I know that they DO try very hard to reunite owners. In addition to researching the microchip information, they...
