    I had great success confining my puppy to one room, then giving her more freedom as she's earned it. I had to let her use potty pads in the garage as it was February and we had so much snow this...

    I hosed my mare's off daily and hung it to air dry. She was stalled 12 hours and out 12 hours, so it had all day to dry.

    If it was super gunky, then I dunked it and let it sit in a bucket of...

    I think your best bet is to offer to pay for the dental / neuter (and they can consider it a donation for that specific dog), then fundraise quietly among family and friends to cover the cost. Don't...

    I actually think the idea of having a working boarder or 2 would work best for you. That way it's still your barn and you can dictate the level of care.

    Maybe you can feed and turn out in the...

    Ideal situation for my mare is 'almost' 24/7 turnout, on a dry lot. She can't be out 24/7 on the grass, even with a muzzle. I want her to be separated from the herd at feed time so I'm sure she's...

    Nezzy, get one of those nose fleece things and put it on the halter before attaching the muzzle. Then attach the nose strap on top of the fleece. This keeps the muzzle from sitting on their...

    Since he seems like he's content still, I'd have the vet do some bloodwork and check him over. I would def try a few more things to get his weight back up, especially if his appetite is still good. ...

    I think what most of them object to is the muzzle resting on their nostrils, and that the hole is so small it's not worth trying to eat anything.

    So - what I do is buy the muzzle that you can...
