Re: Bot eggs

Since moving to South Carolina I've not seen bot eggs until this year. I've seen them on horses all around the state! :-O

Re: Keurig or Keurig-style coffee makers: Do you like them?

We made the mistake of buying the little Keurig and do not like it at all. It's a PITA because we like big cups of coffee and you have to make three batches for one large coffee. First I don't like the idea of water sitting in there forever!!! Also, I have two large thermal mugs I travel with and t...

Re: ever seen rain rot that...

Almost every one of my horses has had some rain rot the last few weeks. I'm attributing it to the extreme rain we had a few weeks ago. It all seems to be resolving. Oddly my 3yo had it the worst and when I had the chiro out she needed the most work. Absolutely a wreck tip to tail.

Re: Should we do a 30 day challenge/makeover?

I will start Nov. 1. I will make this not just a body thing. I can do that but I struggle for the making over my discipline for self advancement. Reading an inspiring / motivating article, writing a haiku, all those other nifty things normal successful people do.

Re: Should we do a 30 day challenge/makeover?

I could possible be enticed. I just started a diet Oct. 1 and lost 17 lbs so far. I already do a personal trainer 2x a week and spin class several times a week. I work as a barefoot trimmer so that's a workout in itself. I also ride two horses. Where do I start?

2014 Furst Piccolo Gelding..Columbia, SC Sold

This is the nicest gelding ever. My trainer wants me to keep him for the 4 year olds but I have to sell to make way for the newer ones! Super elastic, super elegant. Will be easy for amateur or pro.

Finsternis!!

Re: Another name help thread

Is there a requirement for the first letter of the name? As in my breed Westphalians the name must begin with the first letter of the sire or the Dutch rotate through the alphabet.

Re: Fitness!

I am a barefoot trimmer for starters. I also have a personal trainer who handles my aged body (heading toward 62) and then to keep the fat down I am enrolled in a spin class. Other than that I lift a glass or so every night! :D :D
