    After I got out of a 3 year relationship I hurt. My heart hurt in a deep tangible way that I'd only read about in overly dramatic teen novels. I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep, and everything made me...

    Yes I do. To toss all of my biases out in the open I am pro-choice (but believe abortion is ending a human life), vegetarian (although I don't believe it is unethical or cruel to eat an animal), and...

    What about making a comment like "I adore this mare and was sad that life circumstances prevented me from keeping her. If her new buyer wants any old pictures, just let me know!" That keeps it casual...

    I'd either ask my vet to come out or would find someone who would. That was a bold move to diagnose an unknown painful swelling along the spine without seeing the horse.

    Unless it is actively thundering/lightning, mine always went out. If it starts up while they are out I *strongly* prefer management leaves them out. A lightning strike is always a fear but I feel...

    Unless you think this mare has the pieces for prelim + then jumping ability is almost obsolete. All things being equal, a drool-worthy knees jumper who is a flat mover is still going to get whooped...

    A video would be super helpful. Tripping could be stifles, lack of balance, a subtle lameness, or something much more concerning. One of my rides really struggles on even a large circle right now...

    I know next to nothing about feet but I find the dark front foot really interested. *To me* it looks like the new heel growing in is way less under run. Am I misreading the foot? The heel looks...

    If she wants to board I think $20/day is reasonable if it includes administering meds. $600 a month isn't absurd and may be enough to get her moving in a more timely fashion.

    Take both reins into your outside hand and drop your inside hand straight down. If you are an inside rein picker it will be terrifying. You will be convinced you will run into a wall and/or over...

    Are you actively in the market?

    Where is he relative to your budget?

    Beautiful is worthless if you aren't enjoying it. To me this is like agonizing over getting out of a tepid relationship because "he's just soooo hot" but you have nothing in common and don't really...

    I think another important element is skin texture and sensitivity.

    Some people can shave their legs and the skin is perfectly smooth afterwards. Others, the hair is gone but the skin doesn't...

    How do you do it? The more my life becomes structured, the more overwhelmed I am by trying to make barn time.

    What time of day do you ride/how many days during the week?

    Miniature Schnauzers... but not the ones that 90% of people encounter. A true miniature schnauzer is pretty hard to not adore. Unfortunately, it is a breed that has become dominated by puppy mills,...

    Having read the other thread there is no way I would let go of my farrier and vet. This new BO has her own health issues. If she stops boarding you are left finding a new barn, farrier, and vet, all...

    With an older smaller horse I think a weight limit is not unreasonable. If she is really responsive I'd also look into a smooth side pull or bitless bridle. You know her best but it might be a good...

    If the feet really are the cause of soreness I don't know if two weeks is sufficient time. An underlying bruise or thin soles can take a while to really resolve.

    I'd always rather hear years down the road that a horse stayed sound and succeeded with someone else than stare at a broken horse in the pasture that I'm paying the bill on. That is a statement I've...

    I feel tension when I flex my thumb. I broke one of them as a child and it was never set properly. It is prone to swelling and aching if I write too long. I am fairly sure it would be detrimental for...
