    I believe drugs used for lethal injections have to be FDA approved for human use. The drugs we use on animals are not necessarily approved for human use, but animal use.

    I'm not 100% sure on...

    Husband? Is he involved?

    The older boy is also in danger- if the niece is taken away, her abuse might become focused on him. Additionally, since he's 8, he probably just knows how to stay out...
  3. Saw this on another BB- neglect at farm in NY

    This woman is trying to get some help for some horses at a farm in NY state. I don't know any of the people involved, but the pictures are pretty damning, and it sounds as if there is something...

    You saw scumbag is not abusing A but how would you really know?

    Have you talked to DD about scumbag and A's bad decision to hang with scumbag? Perhaps scumbag needs support. If scumbag is not...

    Hope your horse is feeling better soon.

    I think Tick Borne illnesses are a bit like pregnancy: It only takes 1. Still might be worth running a tick panel just to rule that out.

    Keep in mind these people may be bat$hit crazy. I would not give them an inch, but the note that Goesthedistance wrote up is a nice gesture.

    What are the "liberties" they have taken on your...

    I grew up in that environment. Parents having swearing, screaming fights frequently. A constant "walking on eggshells" to not upset the parent that was an addict.

    It was not a healthy...

    You could try putting her litter from her old box, used but not soiled, into the new box.

    I assume you have other litter boxes- 1 is not enough for 3 cats.

    My mom has the same problem so I recently did a lot of research on this. She has an Endless Summer Original and the first few years she had it, lots of blooms. She also never pruned it. Then it...

    I'm glad some other very experienced posters commented on the "not a lunging candidate." After I read that, I tried to think of some horses I would describe as not a lunging candidate. I've seen...

    Do not see a martingale as a "gimmick." At this point, it is a safety precaution to keep you from getting knocked in the face! My horse has a very upright neck position (from a part draft...

    Unfortunately, sleeping in the litter boxes is usually one of the signs it is time to let go. Unless its a litter box that resembles a cat bed. So sorry for your girl.

    I would agree that most TB's need a grain instead of a ration balancer. I am also a fan of TC Senior but there are many other grains that are also good.

    The higher protein in the ration...

    If I was the BO in this situation, I would have made the girl's mother make the decision, with the advice of the vet. No way I'd want to responsible for putting someone else's horse to sleep or for...

    With all the move to local and small farm preferences, I would have thought having a concentration in IPM would get you a job as a consultant pretty quickly. Depends on where you are located though....

    Oi. I'm not asking this to be offensive, but it almost sounds like Dad controls Mom a lot at this point- is this nearly a point of elder abuse? If Mom's health is THAT frail, she should probably be...

    So, just confirming, he has NOT been dewormed, right?

    I would run a fecal and bloodwork just to rule stuff out. He does look better, though not heavier, than when he arrived. It would be a shame...

    I haven't had time to read and post since the first page, but I've skimmed and wanted to throw this out there.

    At least in my district, if a teacher is not doing their job and has done something...

    I lost my best friend cat in 2011. She was my constant companion, a complete cuddler, and clearly loved me as much as I loved her. I got her in 2005 and she was only a year when I got her, so I...

    Some pictures might help.

    Daylillies are impossible to kill, and I find Irises to be quite sturdy as well.

    Personally, I think white peonies would look fabulous against a brick background,...

    I think you need to get her a "gift."

    To some kind of retreat or spa that is all day long and possibly lasts several days with overnights.

    When I first started teaching, I completely agreed with you. Now, 7 years later, I've seen administrators and other teachers with personal vendettas and ridiculous demands. Now, I see tenure, and...

    I think I might say, "you know you can lose everything/your house if you get sued when flips over on her, right?"

    People are so dumb sometimes.

    This is why there are jokes about what things in...

    I think when you said #1 you meant the second video. If that's your description of the first video- that's in german, on facebook- then we've got problems!!
