    Look up local cabinet makers. It will be a custom job, so it probably isn't going to be cheaper than just ordering the trunk you want. Another search term is custom woodworking. I don't know where...

    OP, you lucked out! When I had a buyer dispute an item, I got stuck with a rep that didn't know anything about horses, nor would she read the information provided where I explained why the buyer...

    I read a book like that, too, and have had no success finding it on Amazon.com or anywhere else. I remember the title as "Heaven on Horseback" (it's not the Narcissa Whitman book) or in Irish-speak,...

    Now you need a t-shirt commemorating the event - something on the order of I survived the stalking crow...or lion. Continue to keep your camera handy. The only wild lion view I've ever had was when...

    You do know there's anacondas as well as piranha in those murky waters, right?

    As for the ring bridle, it's just a style. It looks as though they'd ruin a lot of leather tack in those...

    The barn where I boarded in California had a lion that came through the property every ten days or so. They have a territory that they travel, so they don't use up all the prey in one area. I never...

    Can your trainer produce extended trot with your horse? If it isn't already in the toolbox, you won't have an easy time getting it either. If there's a lengthening already in place, then an...

    You'll find that a lot of the earlier dressage books give you vague instructions based on "take up the extended trot and..." None of them tell you how to get it.

    He's adorable!

    I also love this pony's dun color!

    Thank you, and I'm happy (and crying right now) to learn that you've found another love, so that you don't have to live your life alone. You've set a shining example for your children of how an...

    Include the "A Virginian in Elfland" series, all of them. "Riding Shotgun" has a similar idea, taken in a more conventional direction, and is very good.

    Charlie is such a good pony, too, because you know that those stirrups rubbed in the doorways, and he didn't go bonkers.

    We used to have sheep in the house regularly, usually adult pets, or...

    It's cute, including the ending, but it's promoting the "Black Stallion Myth" that he'll do anything because he loves me. It atones with the closing scene of Godzilla or the dinosaur chasing the...

    In the 1970's, it was popular to mark your tack with your SSN, and later it was pointed out that the DL was more accessible for law enforcement. This predated the Law Enforcement Database System...

    Using your SSN as an ID number doesn't work very well because Social Security can be sticky about sharing info if someone finds the saddle later on and tries to get it back to the original owner. ...

    Sunset, I don't have an easy answer for you. I sympathize, and like Gestalt, could not devote my existence to tending someone with a self-inflicted problem.

    I'm sure you have already researched...

    Kwill, with sufficient sunscreen, it should be possible to show him during the day, but it has to be sweatproof. Otherwise the horse turns to ashes in mid-class, which is very embarrassing, and not...

    I like the vampire stallion idea. That's truly original. It's going to be hard to show him unless you buy sunscreen by the gallon, though. Five-gaited stakes are usually in the evening division,...

    As unrealistic as this seems to be, it should be over in the five-gaited stallion thread.

    You'd be better off putting all this effort into a good college education and career, then affording The...

    I am so pleased that all of you can see the love these people have for each other. Some of these ranches are 80 miles from town, and they have to rely on each other in good and bad times.
    I love...
