    My impractical liberal arts degree in history has served me well. I tell PhD's what to do in my present position. Actually, come to think of it, I was telling PhD's what to do 5 years out of college.

    Here is a simple solution that has worked for me for oh, over 20 years. Affix the cross ties to the top ring of the halter cheek piece, instead of the noseband ring we are all used to using. I...

    My sister attended SBC for a year, 68-69, and finished up at U of Texas. She and many classmates did not have cars and indeed you get stuck out there without wheels. In my case, I had a car and if...

    I agree Texarkana, it's been deceitful at best. I'm on the reunion committee for our 40th and feel like I donated and solicited donations under false pretenses. They won't be giving that money back,...

    I always go slow on feed changes, especially when they're changing barns. But I'd up the hay or if it's alfalfa, add good grass hay to the mix (in a perfect world, just good grass hay free choice)...

    Oh, no no no, he won't do at all for you. But I could grudgingly take him on for you.:)

    Congratulations! I'm sure your instincts are right. I have two and work 40+ hours a week, but I enjoy having two. Typically I turn one out and ride the other, alternating days. Sometimes I will...

    True, they don't, and in doing so they are investing in their company and future sales. Good move on their part.

    I expect, given the dude ranch setting, that your students are only there for a set period, so it isn't like you will have them for more than a few sessions? Unless the lesson program is targeted at...
