    Is it still an error if you run your hand up the side of the horse's neck (a rub, not a pat) and don't let go of the rein while you do it? It would be a temporary loss of contact, but you wouldn't be...

    I vote for PSSM/EPSM, and would also suggest you change diet. While you may not have a lot of "episodes" to judge if that is the issue, there are other things you can look at. Go over the horse's...

    The dog did that to you (and to your dogs) and they adopted him out? That incident should have been a one-way ticket to you-know-where. Very sad, but there are too many nice dogs needing homes ...

    I had a '97 with ~93K that I traded just a couple of months ago. It was a wonderful truck, but it did have it's issues--clutch & flywheel, power steering, fuel pump, brake lines (twice, and I don't...

    I am SOOOO jealous! I love those ponies, just wish I were "pony-sized" myself! This was a very (very!!) good choice!

    Well, ask me in a week ;)

    Tomorrow I'm picking up three 3-month old puppies to foster for our local humane society. They are already committed to a transport to an area in need of dogs for...

    What to do about it? Stop feeling bad and enjoy your horse. If you want to feel bad for something, feel bad for the horse that they buy to replace this one. Now, THAT's a critter in a bad spot.

    I saw a mixed-breed dog recently and asked what he was, and the person replied "variety pack".

    Looks like a nice fellow!

    He's 4 years old? Shouldn't there be at least two sibling/children in the pasture with him and mom?

    I was really happy with their beet pulp shreds for the first few bags, and then got a couple that were dark and dusty. I guess beet pulp is just difficult. I did find that their alf bales were too...

    Another heavy rain yesterday evening, so no wakeup.

    But while I was mucking the barn last evening, I heard some bird squabble. Looked up into the neighbor's yard and saw a cat scrambling across...

    I prefer to put the KY generic in, go for a ride or turn them out for a while, then go in and loosen and follow up with the hose. Much less of an ordeal to let body heat and motion work things loose.

    I started towing 2-h BP trailers in about 1969, and have done it consistently since then. I've towed with the big Chevy wagon we had back then, 1/2 ton trucks, and my previous vehicle, for 17 years,...

    I recently watched an obedience training video in which one of the dogs being schooled was a hind-leg tripod. Did not slow him down one iota, and he was doing some pretty quick stuff.

    No, that's the thing--it's the middle of the night. They start about 3 am and it doesn't start getting light here till about 5:30.

    Yup, had a coyote the other night, as well, but those concerts are relatively short, lol. I sat there for quite a while last night trying to decide if it was something other than a bird. It may be...

    Birds at night

    Totally off-the-wall:

    What the heck kind of bird stays up all night chirping? I have a maple tree outside my bedroom window and one or more birds have moved in. They wake up about 3 am and start...

    We expect horses to be 100% sound when we ask them to work. Few will go their whole life able to maintain that. An occasional ache or pain is to be expected, but if she's happy, and you are able to...

    So very sorry. Always a nightmare to go through this; alas, it is part of having them in our lives. I hope that time gives you peace, at least, but there are no shortcuts. Hang in there.

    I can vouch for this. My old barn came with a concrete lip on the stalls. Now, 20 years later, one of the lips has a chunk out of it right in the middle. Get bedding leaking out of that one all the...
