    You really could've just left out your personal agenda here.

    I would be calling the biggest, most high profile lawyers in this field I could find. Them dumping you off at the very last second is...

    What? Who is the one that overreacted, again? I don't think the OP should reward this passive aggressive, childishly bad behavior by getting BO a gift and groveling. That's a great way to become a...

    Doing the rain dance every day where I'm at here in the valley. There was a ugly forest fire over in the Willamina area not too long ago, I haven't kept up on it but we're not near enough to be in...

    Based on what you say the email from him says, unless you are A-OK with this horse ending up at the auction or similar, I would strongly consider finding a way to take him back, at least temporarily....

    I am a bit surprised that the woo-woo police haven't commented yet, but perhaps they are preoccupied with other threads. :o

    Well, I guess I fit into this category. Not all of the things on that list apply, but most.

    It can be quite heavy, carrying around the feelings and troubles of other people. I have one friend in...

    I think this is going to be the take-home lesson from the responses on this thread. I have my horses at home, and my setup simply won't allow for the "barn princess" type of horse. They have both...

    Mine's not quite THAT old, but let's just say my mom bought it for me back in the days before I even had a driver's license. I'm surprised I ever convinced her to spend the fortune it cost, even back...

    Anyone who *actually* has the means to buy a $40k horse should be able to secure a bank loan for such an investment. As a buyer, even if I COULD find a seller willing to finance me, I'd want the...

    The rules for HT are what you would follow. You do not have to have a stock, a simple ratcatcher is fine. You can also wear a collared shirt with tie, but you will see mostly people with stock ties...

    A properly ridden, forward halt will be square. Some prefer to skirt around the 'proper' part and teach 'squaring up' as a sort of trick instead. I would ride with the intent of achieving a proper,...

    As with any weight gain thread, you're going to want to be more specific about the amount of hay and grain she's getting. It could be as simple as more hay or better quality hay; my hard keepers get...

    Firesteed and Eola Hills are two of my top local favorites, but the area between Rickreall and Newberg is riddled with vineyards small and large - I...

    I had a paint gelding for a few years that I competed training at 15/16 - he had no trouble with anything, was easy to get fit and stayed very sound, but he came to me from...

    Well, either you don't care and it's none of your business, or you do. Your OP makes it sound like you DO care and want to make it your business. You can't complain about the BF being there 5-7...

    Mechanically speaking, I would think a lever noseband would be closer to a Micklem than a figure eight. I picked one up a few weeks ago used, but I have yet to try it. The horse I have it in mind for...
