    Dismounting via the step down method IS dangerous, and I know of several mishaps that have happened as a result of this method. It's actually even more dangerous to dismount onto a mounting block. ...

    OP, I feel for ya. What you described is the amount of mess my husband seems to generate in ONE DAY. He will help clean if I ask him to, but left to his own devices...not so much.

    I have this issue with my horse, and I actually just ordered a Schleese HK with "upswept" panels to address this saddle fitting challenge. I rode him in one at a Schleese saddle fitting that I...

    Years ago, I was at a show that permitted schooling in the show ring in the morning. I jumped into a two stride just as some idiot walked her horse between the first and second elements while...

    I've dealt with my fair share of lameness issues, and I do have a pretty darn good eye for lameness if I do say so myself. Truly, very few horses look really sound to me. It's hard for me to even...

    Summer of 2012 was my favorite summer of all time. Honestly. I pine for it.

    Pretty much my sentiments, exactly. We have not had more than a couple warm days here and there scattered throughout the last couple months. Yesterday it was in the low 90s and super humid, and...

    Not really, ha ha! It would probably be better for the planet if humans ceased to exist or at least diminished in number. And I was a very serious, adult-like child.

    Thanks for the continued input, everyone! As for why I can't just go into a child-free space...well...it's complicated and I don't really want to get into the details. Basically, I have to be at...

    Thanks guys! I have sometimes just told the kids, "Hey, I'm pretty busy right now, so I can't talk" and I do correct them if they interrupt a conversation. I guess I just feel guilty about it,...

    Thanks guys, keep the input coming!

    Yellowbritches, I think my primary issue is that I'm actually trying to complete tasks that I need to get done while the kids are around. I'm not able to...
  13. Help me appreciate children...even a little.

    I do not like kids. As of late, however, I have been forced into a situation where I frequently have to deal with kids (not my own, and not my relatives) during what would otherwise be my relaxing...

    I actually do know this information. He was born in Iowa, and raced in Iowa and Arkansas. So I imagine he was probably out in some field somewhere in Iowa growing up, and then probably housed at...

    My horse had two small (bug bite sized) hard lumps along his spine two summers ago. I had the vet look at them, and she said they were likely a reaction to bug bites. I put Surpass on them for...

    Yeah, that's a good point too. Two huge trees have actually fallen down on the property this summer (one into a paddock - no horses were in it and my horse wasn't even outside at the time). But we...

    To answer a few questions - he's actually on a high fat/low sugar diet (EPSM diet) and has been for two years. I really don't feel it is diet. Especially since when it isn't windy he's completely...

    Interesting about the scent idea...hadn't thought of that. He doesn't ever seem to really be "smelling" anything, but I suppose the lack of ability to identify smells might be part of the issue.

    Yes, this might be a thought. In so many ways, he is much easier to ride than he is to handle from the ground though. I almost feel like I may as well ride him! LOL.

    Plainandtall - I think you are probably right about the source of his stress. It's kind of like he is on prey animal overdrive when it is windy. I could totally see how not being able to hear or...
