    I use wide laced reins. I just prefer the way they feel. 4 days before a big clinic my puppy ate them. I called Bobby's directly as these reins are special order from a tack shop. They sent them...

    Well, it's been less than a month and Al is doing much better! We got in the last of his blood test results, the selenium levels. His levels were 61 ng/ml and the low end of normal is 160 ng/ml :eek:...

    Al enjoyed another turnout session with Bernie. They walked right up to each other, touched noses, and then went to eat hay.

    For the first time yesterday, when I came to his stall, he walked over...

    That's so sweet Trrr-ot! He's a 75 right now. I'm more than happy to pay you something, as well as shipping. I'd also launder them when he outgrows and donate them on to another rescue.

    Yes, I was teary, too, yesterday. I watched him with my horses and thought of the [I]years[I] he's waited for a kind touch and a little compassion from a human, and how in minutes he received just...

    Thanks everyone,
    PrimoAmor- thanks for the tip, I liked them on FB and will try to go up (I live in SW Washington). I usually go to the Canby tack sale, but I think one that benefits a rescue must...

    It's too bad. The straps on my bridle are too wide to fit through a standard baucher, the butterfly worked perfectly...

    I cried, too. I was even more impressed when I read that this family adopted him 3 years ago knowing he had terminal cancer. What unbelievable people to want to give a dog a beautiful last, few years!

    I have 2 suicidal OTTBs. They are, of course, my competition horses. My vet and I joke that they hide razor blades in their haynets and lead pipe in their water buckets. It's inexplicable how they...

    I read that it's the more dominant ones that have the problem when their "subordinate" is taken away.

    I did the opposite of the other poster. Mine are all turned out together, I have a 2 horse...

    It's been a bazillion years, but I remember it. I believe it received quite a bit of acclaim. I know Graham Greene was wonderful, and since it was right after his Oscar-nominated performance in...

    Oh, I love Johnny Depp- it should go without saying that he'll act the socks off his co-stars, except maybe Scout ;)

    I don't usually chime in on these things, but I was a Native Studies major and I am a Native person, so it's topic that interests me on many levels.

    I want to throw out that I think that it's...

    I went through a rough time where I withdrew even from the horses- usually what keeps me going. Avoided the barn for days. One evening I just went out and sat in their field and watched them and...

    Just a thought re the vagus nerve from a massage perspective- if the muscles are tight or have some type of deep adhesion in the muscle, you can potentially trigger the vagus nerve. Perhaps when the...
