    I worked with someone in august when we had a " life changing issue" and had to get healthcare. When I called them to re- enroll on the 15th of November I was told they had 600 calls so far. I was...

    That has been our experience in a nutshell. Most of our dogs have been shelter dogs, strays or mix breeds people had for sale. We have had a few papered dogs and all got the same care. I have never...

    If cost to run is a factor I would recommend the stock tank heater over the buckets. One year I tried using several heated 5 gallon buckets instead of a larger tank. My bill was more. Plus I had...

    This is a great idea and depending on where you live here in the US, it can almost eliminate the need to even use a heater at all. I saw a show on PBS (i think) where someone in Minnesota who...

    I had a cribber for 21 years. I would say that if it isn't affecting his health let him crib. My guy was the picture of health the whole 21 years I had him. He ate wonderfully, held his weight...

    It will be safer if they can see what is making the noise. They will get used to the comings and goings of your neighbors pretty quickly. The lights and close neighbors may just prove to make...

    I found that my electric bill was lower when I used the 1500 watt tank heater. I would say $50 a month per tank heated would be a rough high estimate. Rates vary depending on where you live. It will...

    I have 2 mares at home.
    10 year old Appaloosa & 12 year old Appaloosa/POA cross.

    No health issues with either mare and both do too well on the pasture so when the grass is in they are out on...

    I feed on the ground and have almost zero waste. If you feed free choice then you must feed in something or they will waste it. My horses also get the hay the goats won't eat and they clean that up...

    The only problem I have is when people are not around to remove a blanket when the temps get warm, or to blanket a horse who is used to a blanket when the temps suddenly get cold, rain, snow etc. ...

    It is only an issue if you make it into one. If he doesn't want to ride or go to the barn don't force him to. My husband ( married 23 years now) has ridden maybe 5 times and the last was probably 22...

    It is always best to give notice as soon as you can. It really depends on the place you are leaving. If there is a long waiting list for stall space a " sooner than 30 days" may not be an issue if...

    Maybe if you took a stall wall out to make a bigger area for her? Could be that in her last home she wasn't allowed in the shelter by more aggressive horses in her herd. Or if she did go in she was...

    I have ponied a lot of horses using both english and western saddles. It is better to have a horse that leads well and the horse you pony off of should respond to your aids to stop, turn and back...

    To me gender wouldn't be the issue. Doing it right is. As long as you are physically able to do all that a client needs done, then give it a try. One thing that seems to be equal among all farriers...

    All my riding horses since 1976 have started out as babies and I have enjoyed each and every one thoroughly! If you have experience training your own horses ( with success) I don't see why not.

    I may be alone in my thinking but a good rider ( IMO) uses the reins and leg together to accomplish your purposes. It should also be done in such a way that you really don't see it happening.

    Do they have an indoor arena you could try him out in the next time weather will keep him in? He obviously needs his turnout time to remain a sane individual.

    This^^^ is what I was thinking. If you want to find out what is really going on, go in person and find out. Can you prove ownership of this horse if needed?

    I would divide the pasture and put the new gelding in with the mare he is friends with. If they continue to put this meek TB in with a dominate horse who chases him through the fence, they are going...
