    I can't remember the name of the vet I liked (Harrison maybe), but I was not at all impressed with Haymarket.

    Most in my commissioning class at OCS were engineers. Most had been paid in college so they couldn't just quit and go home. I actually felt sorry for my drill instructor several times.:lol:

    Wow.

    You must be one of those tourists I loathe on the DC Metro, the one who writes some letter to the editor because the locals here are rude. The one who thinks I should slow down and enjoy...

    None of this addresses my last point - what are the actual numbers for fatal accidents at .08 vs .09 vs .10 vs .20? Not the number of crashes in a simulator, where participants are fed alcohol.

    I...

    I think your part leaser is a little surprised you actually got the other gal to ride your horse, a little put off and a bit nervous.

    She did mention before that she'd like to see the horse ridden...

    This is what I've grown up with. My BO routinely breaks his yearlings to long lines and briefly hooks them. He has gotten into DHH the last 5 years and they can be TOUGH if not started early. Much...

    Based on the criteria here, I should have never bought a horse.

    At the time I'd had a relatively small amount of formal lessons, but had been riding on off for years.

    I had no boarding barn...

    Most times there isn't a perfect horse.

    If you fall madly in love with something, take 3 steps back. Being madly in love won't overcome holes in training or soundness.

    My first thought was that those shafts would be too short! I drove short coupled, 15.2 mare with 88" shafts on a 2 wheel bike. My big mare (17.2) is also short coupled (i.e. 72" blanket) and she...

    This is local for me, other side of the county. Most of what I know has come from the local news coverage, which isn't really consistent for this area, or even accurate. One recent article in the...

    I need to get my saddle fixed right now. They don't make them anymore (blue ribbon cutback) it's at least 20 years old (I've had it for 15 years & got used). Since I...

    From your post, you still sound reasonably active. Maybe you shouldn't be.

    I wouldn't worry about the mare or foal. My BO routinely drives his mares up until their last month with no problem. When my mare was bred the first time (when he owned her) she didn't bag up much,...
