    I get my spirulina from herbalcom.com. It's a powder; a bit messy and smelly, but neither of my horses put up any fuss eating it. (Neither are picky eaters though.) I mix it in with their...

    I would have done what you did. I always call the vet, no waiting (and the call costs nothing.) Like you, I am far from care. In the best of times the nearest vet is a minimum 30 minutes away (and...

    I've been using Benjamin Moore for years. I like the eggshell finish for most walls. It cleans up really well (even in kitchen and bathroom) without the glossy look of enamel. Very worth the price to...

    I've been accused of being obsessively organized, so I'll share how my tack hooks are set up. My tack room is 12 x 18, so far less wall space than your 24' wall. I hate clutter. I have 7 stalls; each...

    Gosh, I thought I was alone in this. It's nice to know I actually belong so some kind of sisterhood. My neighbor's lawn mower broke down a few weeks ago and she decided sheep would be a...
  7. What has a horse got to do with it ---same-sex marriage?

    Anyone else hear this piece on NPR earlier this week? Scroll down to the piece about Clela Rorex and have a listen. One woman with a whole lot of horse-sense! Gave me a great laugh.

    Clean the filter.

    If you have hard water causing the "scum," I add 1/4 cup white vinegar to each load (along with the usual detergent and rinse agent.) Just por a few glugs in the bottom of my...

    Uup, gnats. Also check inside ears, girth/under belly area and around and just in front of the sheath. Fjord pony, but not OTTB also seems to get bitten just above the tailhead (and then starts tail...

    All of the above (with a fair number of choice words thrown in, yes CD.) I found Dover generic brand seemed to go on easiest and hold up best for some reason; no clue why. Eventually my boy learned...

    Have you considered a change in management rather than more/different drugs? (Or as Tnavas says, if she is really that uncomfortable. Unfortunate, but maybe the kindest.)

    Yup, just like Jim, just an add-on to my regular vehicle policy with Auto-Owners. About the same bargain price too.

    Done. I do now have my horses at home but answered based on the last 2 places I boarded. Went from an other wise acceptable/decent facility (with one major non-negotiable; water was often neglected)...

    2Dogs - DD is the panna cotta master in the house. Makes light and heavenly custard that unfortunately would not hold up for shipping; even if it were to find a way to sneak out of my house:winkgrin:...

    Raspberries over Lemoncello panna cotta (or you can puree the berries, add a little sugar and cook down to make a syrup.) Sooo good, even if it kills me to puree those gorgeous little berries.

    Have you tried Keratex Hoof Hardener rather than the gel? I had better results with the hardener on my OTTB with shelly feet. He came to me with pretty poor feet and had trouble keeping shoes on. He...

    Just finally got our 10 acres cut this past week and in the barn Saturday. I thought it was late last year when we didn't get it in by Father's Day, but this is the latest we've ever been.

    Although the vet's behavior was truly sub-par, maybe he was also human and just had reached his limit for the day. Maybe he had one too many...
