    I just want to echo what somebody said about using the plastic bag at the end of a whip method--it can work amazingly well. My dumblood, long before he had sufficient brains to be hauling anywhere,...

    I'd turn her out for a month. She's in a habit, and I have no idea how long it takes to see improvement for ulcers. I'd be salty if I had to ride everyday in an indoor too. Give her the rest of the...

    "We are going to get rid of the horse carriages. Period,” de Blasio said when asked about his plans for the tourist attraction.

    Not much mention of how the city is going to finance buying back all those medallions. One was recently rumored to sell for $200,000. Might be a tiny constitutional issue there. Bring on the...

    To each his own but I prefer going to a nurse practitioner. The one I found at a dermatology practice is great. I guarantee she spends a hell of a lot more time doing injections than any plastic...

    It depends on your state. In most states they at least need a collaborative practice agreement with a physician. Virginia just removed the on-site supervision requirement a couple of years ago. Texas...

    Nobody works for "Clinton park's barn". By trying to sound like you have inside knowledge you've given yourself away. The Clinton Park stable is where most of the carriage horses are boarded.

    I'm in the exact same boat and a full clip is a must. I also had the back of his legs clipped, where he gets the most filthy, and that helps a lot.

    Then it'll be something else.

    A horse licked the water off the cover of a trash can and the howling about it went on for days.

    Except there hasn't ever been actual abuse documented, so no animal cruelty charges. The worst you could say is differing opinions about how the horses should best be cared for. Because that doesn't...

    All the council has to do is put one finding in their bill that the purpose of the act is public safety and that is all the grounds they legally need. The seizure of the horses, whether it's physical...
