    I'd bet it's the smell of the other pets. I've had perfectly housebroken dogs pee in a the house because years previously the other owners dogs had gone there. (And it was years because the people...

  6. Fee for obtaining a replacement helmet from Troxel?

    I fell off my horse the other day. Landed on my butt but then hit my head on the dirt. I just bought a new Troxel in June. They used to have a policy where they would test the helmet and if ok,...

    Yep, John Lyons is the best method. I just got done using it to teach a huge warmblood how to back out of the trailer. His problem wasn't loading, it was unloading. I have a step up and the first...

    Frankly, the only dogs in the local shelters by me are Pitt Bulls and Pitt crosses. And no puppies. When I wanted a nice pet, I ended up getting them from 2 "back yard" breeders. For the shepherd...

    I can't believe there were no comments about the Gold Cup! It was a thriller of a race and Estimate almost won!

    Thats how I keep my dogs out of the pasture. Just make it very hot. I just used cheap. Electric rope not the good stuff. You might want to put it on both sides of the fence. Worth a try.

    Good Luck! And the best advise I was given all weekend... "just remember to breath!"

    UPDATE! We survived the Barrington Mini Event and met all our goals! I did the correct dressage test, jumped all the fences in the right order, stayed on the horse and didn't embarress my trainer! ...

    You are not alone! You might want to read "Riding in Your 80's" The common theme is the loss of confidence as we age. I'm in my 50's and I know I'm not as brave as I used to be and I didn't take a...

    The story makes sense if the person taking care of the dog let it get out and it was subsequently picked up as a stray. But I don't think you're paranoid. There are all sorts of crazies out there...

    Yep, in my experience, at about 3yrs old, the younger ones (if they have any ambition at all) start thinking they might not have to be low woman on the totem pole! I had to keep 2 shepherds apart...

    I agree with the thyroid. But also, as one old vet once told me, "How many fat 90 year olds do you see?" As we really age, the body isn't as efficient at absorbing nutrients and it makes it harder...

    Yeah, I didn't want to essentially double up on the flea control, but my vet ok'd it as well.

    Thanks everyone. We're going with Sentinal and Advantix II for right now. She did well with Advantix and the only thing in question is the flea control part of the sentinal.

    Electric fence is your friend. Kids don't read signs and warning them not to come on the property is almost like a dare. Pulsed electric fence won't hurt them at all, but for some reason it creates...

    I live in NW Indiana, no where near water, so, after reviewing the pictures, I'm guessing very large gopher. Although the feet and tail length proportion to body length look more like a very small...

    Identify the critter!

    Dogs got something last night. It had a bald tail, so at first I thought young opossum. But, no, the feet were slightly webbed, it was brown and had front teeth more like a beaver. It was about 10...

    Bet she'll be fine and I wouldn't mess with pee pads etc. until she has accidents. Dogs have amazing bladders. This winter, when I was out of town, all the roads were closed due to a blizzard and...

    I know they say it's safe, but I'd still prefer not to use the drug if there are alternatives that work as well.
