    Gosh, I love mine...and I wash lots of dirty barn clothes, cat beds, etc. I've only had it a little more than a year, but so far it (and the dryer) are a big improvement over my old Kenmores.

    As mentioned above, it can take a long time for them to adjust. Obviously they're not so scared that they won't eat and play, so they'll adapt eventually.

    Knock wood, mine have never escaped, but I've chased down plenty of the neighbors' horses. Why is it always the middle of the night/very early in the a.m. when they escape? Why can't they ever do it...

    If you have a garage door, leave it up a few inches with food inside, just in case kitty is lurking but afraid.

    All of the above suggestions. You should keep a copy of the adoption agreement or whatever the owner has to show that she just acquired the horse from the rescue. (Frankly, I'd be inclined to call...

    I use TriCare triple antibiotic ointment on my gelding. Helps heal up the little sores and repels gnats. Lasts longer, too, much better than Swat.
