    gosh, trying to remember, it's been forever. I think it was probably Schoolmarm that brought me here. I had met her and Cougar2 and others (portia) as Aimee at equisearch.

    i tend not to go with the "barn" farrier, as in large barns, it's a cookie cutter type procedure, usually netting the farrier the most money as he is putting on pads, heart bars, etc.

    At least learn to spell, it's PROBABLY. From the root word probable. As in "It's probably a good bet that I will block katgiddens so I don't have to read her stupid posts anymore."

    i found MOS to be disgusting to use to clean tack--it made it sticky and gross. Give me Kirk's Castile soap any day.

    Bravo. Would I eat horse? I don't know, but seriously, what makes it any different than cow or pig? They eat guinea pigs on sticks in Ecuador. I think they're cute, just like piglets, yet I love...

    i think RougeEmpire must have left very young and with a pretty poor memory;. Sorry, but the Mormon population is in the south.

    this whole thing blows. I guess what I keep coming back to in my mind is that this lease thing (supposedly not signed by the owner yet, but obviously discussed) was the first right of refusal.

    it's taken me three days to wade thru all these pages. Ok, I agree with ESG's large post, and have to call BS on this Alagirl.

    that was my second thought--the first being that you could so easily get a hand, arm or leg caught up in the line and then you'd be dragged.

    i think it's probably more dog sledding than sled dogging.

    i never got to riding prelim, only training at Prelim level. It's hard--it takes an accomplished horseman (or at least back in the late 70's it did).

    I find it hard to believe that a rider skilled...
