    Josef Seibel. I just bought my second pair of the Caspian model, and really love them. Great walking shoe, and they look sporty without being frumpy. Lots of fun colours too!

    One of mine has had these exact symptoms a few times in the past - never positive for giardia. They are out and about a lot - we go hiking, to the park, etc so I think they just pick stuff up. A...

    I hear ya OP. We went through a similar experience. The local rescues had completely insane policies, complicated applications, and a bad attitude about pretty much everything.

    Being locked in a stall 24/7 is not an issue of absentee owners - it's an issue of bad stable management. Owners, particularly those who are not able to make daily visits to the barn do have the...
