    I used Benadryl when my mare itched herself bloody due to mosquitoes. I think I used 3 generic human pills twice a day. Can't show on it because it is (in theory) a sedative. My mare certainly...

    Mandarin is very difficult. Not saying don't go for it, but understand that learning it is going to take much, much longer than learning a romance language. I learned Korean, a language who's...

    I love my Surface. I got the older version, right after the new ones came out. It was right around $250, with a keyboard. It does take a bit to get used to the windows tablet operating system, but...
  5. Sabino and dominant white are different mutations...

    Sabino and dominant white are different mutations of the same gene. That KIT gene we were talking about earlier. I think you are thinking of Sabino as a certain type of color pattern, the jagged,...

    If they are all you say they are they likely have the situation under control and wouldn't need your services. I agree that approaching out of the blue would likely be a turn off for them, and have...

    I love snakes, they are so pretty. Unfortunately they are banned here in Hawaii. :( Too much of an ecological risk. I have to get my scaley kick from the plethora of geckos that inhabit my house....

    A Mustang is nothing like a wolf. A mustang is a domesticated animal that has gone feral. It has thousands of generations of selective breeding for domestication behind it and a few generations in...

    I mentioned Sato because he is from the same bloodlines. He had to get his spots from Puchilingui's chestnut/white gene, so there is a 93% chance Puchi's Rambo also got a chestnut/white gene from...

    You may have to treat him like a child. Obviously try not to be demeaning about it, but that is just the fact of life. If he can't take care of himself he needs someone to help him with it. Sit...

    KIT is the name of the gene who's variations are responsible for many of the white patterns found on horses. Tobiano, Sabino, Dominant White (your girls) and Classic Roan are all variations of the...

    DNA testing could likely tell, from an "in the lab" standpoint, you wouldn't be able to tell from the current style of DNA test results.

    Not to mention that the link isn't 100%. It is very very...

    Nope. It's still 50/50. The "KIT" gene handles Tobiano, The various Sabino/Whites and Classic Roan colorings, and it's a straight 50/50 sort of thing.

    One thing to note, Puchilingui was...

    This guy is a cutie. He's got a nice curious expression and seems relaxed in the pens, which bodes well for his trainability. And you never know, he may grow into that head. ...

    I believe it was used in combination with poling, but I have never done it, nor seen it done, so I have no idea about the actual mechanics or effectiveness. I agree that just hitting the poles would...

    I agree with the folks above who say if you really want a mustang go adopt one from the pens or a prison program. And if you do go to the pens LISTEN to the wranglers about which horses are the most...

    It wouldn't do anything. The copper only works while the pigment is being laid down into the hair shaft. So it only works during the spring and fall sheds, when the new hair is coming in. It's not...

    I'm glad to see this more common. I've always liked a bit of color in the mane. I used to braid my plain Jane dark bay gelding in navy. That was, gosh, 17 years ago? Wow, I'm getting old.

    To build on the gene linkage thing. The Kit gene, which is responsible for the majority of white color patterns shares a chromosome with the base color gene. For the most part the two will divide...

    If you have only had her a week I would just give her more time before jumping to any conclusions. Take it slow and let her settle. Check for pain, sure, but other than that time and moving at the...
