    Yep. And in my case, there WAS someone with my vehicle - my brother. But since *I* was not there, they wouldn't tow. I don't know how AAA handles it (I had AAA at one point years ago, but it never...

    I've had them for years and been almost entirely happy. (Exception was to do with the "you have to be with your vehicle" thing - my brother took me to the airport in my truck, which broke down when...

    While the risk of a rotational fall may be negligible at the lower levels, I'd point out rotational falls are not the only way a horse and rider fall together. Over the years, I've had four horse...

    Why not just wear your CO? (That's not meant to sound snarky, it just seems more logical to me to wear what you've already got instead of spending 100s on something else, especially something...

    Thanks, AllWeatherGal, for the heads-up - I've added everyone up to here. :) I can't promise how accurate the older info is at this point, but the worst that happens is you send someone a PM and...

    I emailed Ecogold with a question as to whether their smalls would fit my 14.2 h mare, and they replied that if they did not I could send them back with measurements and they would custom (re)make me...

    I fed them for years - to only good effect - until the Sunflower Mafia started up their pricefixing scheme. ;) I switched to a combination of canola oil and flax seed, and Mr Hard Keeper is still...

    Honestly, two dogs are not getting aggressive because they actually think they are going to eat your 16.1 h horse. Maybe - MAYBE - they might if there was indeed a whole pack of them (but even then,...

    NOT to excuse the dogs or their unknown owner, but dogs follow things that run away. When a horse runs, it becomes part of the game/hunt/whatever they have going on in their little doggie heads.

    What a cute boy!

    I agree with everyone else - forward forward forward and straight straight straight. He's not afraid of those jumps; he's just not being asked to commit.

    It's an easy trap...

    I've already got my tickets, because I am a Bad Horse Person (tm). I don't have a costume, though, so I guess I'm not QUITE as bad as I could be, right?

    I've known horses injured to one degree or...

    I don't think it's uncommon to have a retiree and a riding horse. I got a baby when my old guy was getting up there in age, figuring she'd be ready to ride about the time he was ready to retire...

    Clarification, because I phrased that badly: when I say "waiting for the paperwork" I don't mean "waiting to file the lien" - I mean the period between when the paperwork is safely filed and when the...

    I can think of at least three barns I know of, in different parts of the country, who have locked in a horse while putting through the legal paperwork for a stableman's lien - all cases of multiple...

    Lots of places will padlock a stall if someone is behind on board and threatening (either literally or figuratively) to leave without paying. Once the horse leaves, the BO loses all their leverage. ...

    I pre-treat greasy stains with dish detergent - preferably Dawn, but if not then whatever I have on hand. It works very well; after all, getting rid of grease is what dish detergents pride...

    I only clip the stragglies that stick out. My super sensitive boy doesn't grow very robust ear hair to start with, but even my well-haired mare can lose her focus quite handily when confronted with...

    As someone noted above, the only con I can think of is if they are installed or sited badly, which is a con to any sort of construction. Note: always make sure outside doors are latched so that they...

    I use one any time the flies are likely to be an issue - schooling, trail riding, competition (when legal), etc.
