    Um, empirical evidence that it works is exactly what is lacking. Testimonials, traditions, and anecdotes don't constitute empirical evidence.

    Can we not turn this into a slaughter/no slaughter debate, and just be glad that "Malcolm" found someone kind and caring to take him in?

    I hope he got good news from the vet; even if not, it...

    The first 5 all apply to me!

    I got back into eventing a couple years ago after not competing for several years, and although quite a bit has changed I still love it.

    There is a reason that cross country fences aren't typically set up in small arenas, and it isn't just convenience.

    Those horses had to be totally thrown for a loop by what they were being asked...

    Parts of this movie were filmed pretty close to where I live. I don't know much about the background of the story, but it would be interesting to see if I recognize any of the scenery!

    In the first...

    I would say the same things I have written on here if I were debating this with someone face to face.

    And it's also a slow day at work for me. I'd rather be out riding my horses :)
