    Ha! I waited too long for the first one, and recovery was more difficult because the rest of me had been compensating for so long. It wasn't painful, just took quite a while to get everything working...

    I totally agree with this. Children understand things that are never spoken. They see their father treating their mother with disrespect, and feel the lack of love in that house. They're developing a...

    We saw the black circles for C-max hybrid on CR, and bought one anyway. They're a lagging indicator. I think it's fairly typical that a new model would need some tweaks over the first couple years....

    Have you driven a Ford C-Max hybrid? It looks a little like a Focus on steriods - a mini SUV. One step smaller than the Ford Edge. I can carry 5 bags of grain in the back, even without putting down...

    Can he get his head over a wall, and bang the wall with his front legs when he paws? Or over the top of a stall door? He may also be damaging them when he goes down.

    My trainer suggested spraying the area with witch hazel. Said it helps toughen the skin. We also switched to a mohair girth, so I don't know which worked. But between the two things, she hasn't had a...

    You started a related thread on June 2. Rather than starting a new thread, could you just update the previous one with any new info?

    I also have the nets from Shires. Have a few in rotation, but I haven't purchased any for more than a year. Definitely securing the bottom back to the top snap causes them to rip sooner.

    If the helmet is tight at the forehead but has a gap over your ears, the helmet is rounder than...
