    Clipper brand/type recommendations?

    Hey all. After losing my sweet riding horse to colic a month ago, I came to the realization I would not be getting another full sized horse but rather focus on my mini and driving. So! I have been doing a MASSIVE tack room clean out, selling 12yrs worth of "Wow, I collected a lot of stuff for...

    Just 4mos post op from brain surgery: Our first driving show! (Pics, of course!)

    Four months ago, I was 3000 miles from home, about to entrust my skull and its precious cerebellar contents with a world-renowned brain surgeon. My condition (Chiari Malformation type 1, in which the back of the brain herniates down out of the skull and into the spinal column) was causing...

    After a long, long time...I'm back, with a new life

    Need help rehoming my special-needs mini in SoCal--UPDATE! *AWESOME* HOME FOUND! :D

    Hello all. It's been ages since I've posted around here...and what brings me back is sad news. I emailed the SoCal CMHR contact person, but haven't heard back from her. FTR--in case it isn't obvious, I don't want money for Firefly; I just want a good home. Here is what I emailed her...

    Just a lil' update

    When I first visited these boards, I made my introductions in this forum. I was looking for a mini suitable for a program that would introduce underprivileged youths for teens. I was willing to take horses with minor health problems--temperment was my primary concern. Well! As many may know...

    Looking for a mini for a SoCal youth program

    Hello! My name is Laura and I'm a junior high math/science teacher in Southern California. I currently have one horse, a very sweet Arabian named Ferrana (thus my screenname). She is my pleasure and local-show horse--and a very well-cared for pet. Next year I plan on starting an equestrian...
