    That's very strange, Beowulf. I have bought many things on the clearance floor and returned some of them. Whenever I ask if the clearance items are returnable they say "of course!".

    I think 3 hours hard exercise is fine for a Viszla and agree with the concerns about temperament. This is a breed I'd only want from a reputable breeder. There are a lot of temperamentally...

    If not, we'll rent yyo a wheelchair and I'll push you all over. And maybe we will get moved tt the accessible seating closer to the ring.

    Oh that's easy. A Barbour coat and Dubarry boots to go with the Land Rover you just drove up in.

    Eagle Creek is a nice brand but pricey. You can get similar quality in other brands.

    I prefer a sock bottom. But if you won't do those, it would be great if the velcro was sewn so that it doesn't cut the rider's leg. My Trophy Hunters make my legs bleed. Otherwise, they are my...

    Off the back of your wheelchair! Well now THAT would have been a useful detail to include in a first post! In that case, look for day packs which do NOT have a lot of interior pockets. Those limit...

    They probably hear that you don't have a horse yet and tune out. I think that's rude, but in their defense, "verge of horse ownership" could be one day or a year. If you can be very specific like "I...

    Buy a backpack which fits your back. They are like shoes- what fits one person will not fit another. Best to get fitted at a reputable outfitter because measuring your torso alone doesn't tell the...

    Softcrate like a Noz2Noz? My theory is that it will help reduce the tennis-ball-in-the-dryer situation and while it doesn't offer any additional protection, there's very little that can smoosh your...

    I think you are approaching this the right way. I just get twitchy when people start talking about "brat behavior". Little kids, horses, dogs, etc. do well when they can. They're usually not...

    What you are describing isn't "brat behavior". It is fear or pain or something else that's very real. Just because you don't know what it is doesn't make it about him "getting the upper hand", it...

    All the wire crates from all the years will squash your dog like a potato masher in a crash. A fellow herding student was a firefighter for 30 years and has told me stories of what he would pull out...

    Pretty happy about this. It reflects well on Marty Walsh. I'm going to have to tune in to Jim and Margery tomorrow- they've been having a ball with the whole Olympics debacle.

    What I want to know is how you know this? Did your son-in-law come home and tell your daughter what transpired at the lawyer's office? Seems kind of strange that he would be so forthcoming, unless he...

    I'm a 34-36H depending on brand and Enell size 2 works the best for me. It's hot and does NOT wick sweat but it supports my back and my front. I have a Wacoal sports bra for the hottest days and it...

    I must be living under a rock. I don't suppose anyone will be kind enough to explain "dressage tail" and "hunter tail" to me. And what is this about toilet brushes and hedgehogs?
