    My daughter was diagnosed with RA when she was 4 (first symptoms at age 3). When she was small she simply would not tell us about her pain or stiffness; we had to go by physical exams or what you...

    Update--

    Since he is still bright-eyed and enthusiastic, we decided to see what we could do changing his feed around. I bought some Triple Crown Senior, some rice bran pellets, and some Omega-3...
  4. Help! Who can fix the zipper on my tall boots?

    Yesterday the zipper on one of my tall boots broke. It's not so much the zipper per se--the pull, and the thing that attaches the pull to the bit that slides up and down, broke.

    I live in east...

    He's still bright-eyed, interested in eating, follows his buddy with every appearance of happiness. But so thin.

    When is it time to say goodbye?

    My daughter's first pony, a small Shetland/Welsh, is now 31 years old. He's been fully retired for the last 7 years. He's one of those insulin-resistant ponies that actually gets skinnier when fed...

    I was laughing at my kids for their 17th place because it was largely their fault--they scored a near-record level of horse management penalties and as far as I can tell spent most of the rally...

    I do like pony club's policy of giving everyone ribbons. My daughter's team once came in17th place (out of 17). Their ribbons were traffic-cone neon orange. It's been 6 years and I haven't quit...

    I heard Mary King give a talk once and she said that the first time she rode at Badminton she slept in the trailer--not the living quarters, she didn't have those--and how funny the formal dress for...

    I really like the Comfort Inn in Ocala, I've stayed there several times.

    I think it's interesting that Buck wore a helmet for all his horses at Jersey Fresh. I hadn't paid attention since Rolex. I like Dom's comment, and I'm pleased that thousands--seriously, but wow--are...

    It's no big deal to me either way, but I appreciate the explanation.

    I did think it was odd that I couldn't see it on Facebook, either, but I'm not really all that tech savvy.

    I do think that...

    Nah, I'm not going to ask, I know why EN took my comment down: someone higher up on the food chain complained. Happens all the time. (I have a blog and was forced to switch to moderated comments...

    Here's something funny. Right after the piece came up on EN, I commented that I would respect Buck's opinion more if he'd worn a helmet during Rolex dressage. Evention immediately commented back,...

    Maybe a game you could all play together? Or bubbles, everybody likes bubbles.

    Then I'd be having a big 'ol come to Jesus on him. If he understands whoa but ignores you, ramp up the pressure until he quits ignorning you. Again, I'd do this right in the middle of my xc round if...

    I love my Kanteq. Really completely love it; it fits me scads better than all other vests I've tried. I'd try to contact them again. They were at the USEA convention, Rocking Horse, and Rolex, so may...

    I did taper off Effexor because it raised my blood pressure. My MD's nurse (very mistakenly) told me I could just stop it cold-turkey and start a different antidepressant.

    Wildly untrue. I can not...

    I think you're going to have to "waste" some entry fees on this. Forget about everything except him listening to you. Go out of the start box at a walk, pick up a slow trot, allow him to canter the...
  20. O'Connor Event Camp--back on for 2014!

    I'm a complete camp junkie--even wrote about it in my blog today--and I really missed it the last two years. Info at www.oconnorequestrian.us.

    What seems like historical facts in his work are often just contrivances...don't like him.

    I had really good luck with Hanna Andersson. They're pricey, but wow were they durable, and they come in lots of really cute styles for girls. Most of the ones my DD wore were then passed down to 2...

    I have had a lot of luck buying audio language-learning CDs to play while I was in the car. I use them to brush up on my high-school French, but I've also taught myself a smattering of Spanish and...

    My new girl, Sarah, is a 3/4 TB 1/4 Belgian draft. Whoever said look at the individual horse is right--Sarah really looks like a half draft, with solid bone and hindquarters; her full brother looks...
