    I normally don't wade into these discussions because they just piss me off.

    First - every time Fox News gets called Faux News, all I think is - wow, unless said person is using pretty much only...

    I've been happy with the results with the TSF girth - I have used one since late August and my saddle no longer comes forward onto the shoulder blades.

    I have not had an issue with my pad slipping...

    Mine is currently set at 62, 24/7. I wear a lot of layers in the winter. Forced air furnace, but needs to be replaced. Probably would have done that this year, but we are getting natural gas next...

    Most of the above is employer specific unless you are in a union.

    I am a salaried employee. Eight-hour workday? I haven't averaged one of those in years. Ditto time and a half for overtime. ...

    The problem is, from what I understand is that the mortgage is solely in her name - so letting him take the house would be giving him the full value (whatever it is) and her assuming ALL of the debt...

    I always check under whatever layer is on my horse before I pull it off to check his temperature. Though my horse apparently tends towards the "I'm never over-blanketed" theory. It can be 45...

    I am a couple weeks farther down the road. Mine was not a dump - but the idiots renting the barns that back up to my property don't care if they have a crapload of kittens - they do not spay or...

    Didn't she do the commentary last year? I really enjoyed her then and found her very educational.

    And I do think that I predicted there would be a bit of "your saddle doesn't fit right" earlier in the thread.

    Alibi - I had a anatomical girth. A Nunn Finer. Most of the ones you are referring...

    I was using a 26" Nunn Finer without elastic, and the 26" in the TSF girth was too big. I ended up exchanging it (and that was totally without hassle - great customer service) for a 24".

    I haven't tried the saddle pad, but I have been using the girth for about 3 months. I've been happy with it for my horse that hates the saddle anywhere near his scapula, but has a super forward...

    I have a friend at the barn who is incredibly discouraged right now, and not having this problem myself, I am out of ideas for her, so I am hoping the collective wisdom of the COTH may have some...

    Litter box issues after diarrhea

    I have a middle-aged cat that I inherited after the a-hole next door neighbor left her behind when his house foreclosed. She has been living with us for years, happily settled into life as a solely...

    I agree on most counts (and also rode both 4-3 and PSG this year but not on the same day). I never thought that the canter work was anymore difficult in the 4-3, but I always disliked how it did not...

    My PSG horse is 16.3 and wears a 84" blanket. CHT is right when she says it is more about how the hind end is built - including the legs. My biggest challenge with him was getting him to lift his...

    The decision to euth is one of the most difficult you may ever have to make. The problem with any solution other than euth or you personally keeping this horse is that you are 100% correct that you...
