    You can also try a spirulina supplement. I have had very good luck with it. I use LungEQ from Uckele because it is pelleted, but you can get plain spirulina a lot of places, it is just very...

    Yes, this is a nonoption. Besides, I have found the ruination of driveways to be often exaggerated. It might, it might not, it might leave a few cracks but you will still be able to drive on it. ...

    Do you seriously call the vet every time your horse gains weight? especially when they are getting turned out on grass here and in Europe, usually not. That's really asking a bit much. I would...

    I did stay at an Ocala KOA when I went there as that was a bit long to have absolutely no power. It's lovely and wasn't expensive at all for longer-term stays if you are there for the circuit. That...

    If you have a strong lesson program I would suggest "growth from within." Get a couple of nice quality but not expensive lease horses to lease to your more advanced lesson horses and, when they are...

    I used to live in my LQ at horse shows and I never hooked up because I found it to be too expensive. Get some battery powered lights, a propane fridge or a cooler for your food, a propane stove and...

    OP, your daughter sounds just wonderful, and so are you for having raised her so well. I loved reading this story. Best wishes for you and your family.

    I have used TC 30% ration balancer and TC Lite, depending on how much I needed to feed. they are both good products. Right now I use 30% and Senior, and feed everyone one, the other or a combo of...

    I try to get about a month's worth at a time. I also use TC Senior -- you can find out the date it was milled by reading the paper tag on the bottom.

    I think that you should consider telling your boss because it is affecting your job performance and he will not be able to understand and accommodate it unless he knows. I know that if I had an...

    I get my Triple Crown through a feed store that has to order it for me. I have found it to be extremely convenient though you do have to sort of plan yourself. You also want to keep their truck...

    I have the Sage color and it doesn't have fleece at the withers, it has like a neoprene-like material. It looks more like the others than the SmartBlue. It think it is less hot than the Baker which...

    With that extra detail, I would possibly loop your MDs or manager or whomever in on to the schedule issue and get their approval so that you can go to HR and say that they are fine with this...

    Good grief. Just take it out the the driveway, get a shovel and hit it hard behind the head with the tip of the shovel. Instantaneous death. You can kill snakes and rabbits this way too, but you...

    After you get an offer and before you accept it is when you make these types of negotiations. You absolutely need to do it now because after you accept the job you have NO leverage, none at all. ...
  17. I don't think you have to look particularly hard...

    I don't think you have to look particularly hard to find a nice saddle for $1k. Call Smith Worthington, I got one off their clearance page for that price and they fitted it to my horse for free. ...

    There are plenty of options available out there in that range. You can get a Crosby PDN any day of the week for $250 and they are great saddles, as long as you don't mind flat and they happen to fit...

    I think if you lower your age range to 3-4 year olds you can find something very nice but it might not be started under saddle yet, you'll have to go by free jumping. But a well bred jumper is going...

    I would ask for the 4 tens and then see if you could do a noon to 8 or 1-9 pm one day a week alternatively. But you might have to do a crap commute to the barn one way and just ask for an early...
