    I saw him at work in the Ohio State Large Animal Hospital in 1985! I think he was a prof there. People already spoke of him as The Guy, though. I didn't know he was involved with the Alydar case...

    First of all, that is one heck of a swanky affair you are going to - the best of NYC in one wedding weekend! I certainly couldn't afford to even be a guest! :D I live in the Midwest but until I moved...

    I noticed Noble Outfitters has a new line of muck boots out called "Muds," that you could take a look at. Dover carries them and probably others. I don't personally own any of the brands so can't...

    Hi, OP. I understand what you're trying to figure out and that's great that you've built a composting system already. I want to address a couple of concerns you have about traditional compact...

    Hi, Arabz - glad you are interested in a manure spreader! If you are in the market for a compact but powerful machine that can handle any type of bedding you throw in it (including mixed-in hay,...

    OP (and Amaranch), many people ask your question about ground drive vs. PTO manure spreaders. They also ask what size spreader they need, what type, what options are available, etc. To help answer...

    I was at the Region 5 Final. Smaller group than I've seen in years past, and a testing first round course that resulted in a LOT of refusals. At one point there was a consecutive string of four or...

    I agree that George + Downton = My Idea of Heaven :)

    Hahaha! Put your stories together and you've got one from when I was working as a vet assistant. I was only 16, and very sheltered/gullible, so the older guy assistant LOVED teasing me. One day I...

    You might want to have that checked out. Someone has mentioned pilonidal cysts; those are always at the end of the tailbone, which sounds like where your mystery bump is located. Not the same thing...

    I've fed Kirkland for years now. Doggie (11-yr-old Springer bitch) used to get Adult Chicken Premium. Then they got in the Salmon kind (I believe it's the same stuff as "Taste of the Wild" brand) so...

    Well, darn it, up until 6 mo. ago I wouldn't have known a skinny snake if it, well, bit me, but now I can tell that those poor things aren't right! I wonder how come they're that way? Incompetent...
