    I love my MDCs. I have the 'S' (always at 45 degree angle) non-flex wide footbed stirrups. I have horrific ankles as a result of doing an emergency dismount at a gallop, followed by re-tearing the...

    My guess is you unknowingly signed up for the free Prime trial, which lasts a month and then you have to opt out.

    Concussion Number 1 (that we know of): My beginner safe, dead to the world, has had lightning strike behind her and didn't move (literally) horse and I were doing a teeny weeny line with my coach. We...

    This is the one I have as well. The cats love it (heck, the rabbit loves it) and it is super sturdy. It handles even the fattest of our cats (25 pounds) and his antics, plus having a Springer Spaniel...

    Yup, a shleter dog is the way to go. If those dogs get anything more than basic run of the mill issue, they are PTS. Heck, perfectly happy and healthy dogs get PTS. Send him to the shelter.

    And...
  8. Cleaning ears - Anyway to make it suck less?

    I have a springer spaniel complete with the long flowing ears, who lovessss swimming. This of course means her ears need to be cleaned frequently, though I don't do it as often as I should.

    She...

    I would rather not say the amount I have but it is a decent chunk of change and I have additional options at that.

    HOWEVER.

    Tell him to go get the damn dog. There are so many dogs out there...

    My situation is somewhat different because I DO have a chronic disease and my employers do know about it. I do everything I can to come into work, but there are days when wearing clothes is...

    Wrong? No. Crazy? Well, maybe, but not in this case. It is never wrong or crazy to help an animal.

    No. This behaviour would not be tolerated in my horses. They need to be polite and respectful to everyone, even if they don't particularly enjoy it. I would not expect to barn staff to have to deal...

    please get your horse a nice orange quarter sheet and maybe a bonnet and boots as well.

    Mare 1? She is very willing, but not the brightest. I imagine it would go something like this:
    "We need to jump this course"
    "Why?"
    "Because we need to practice finding out distances"
    "Why?"
    "So...

    Ginger Snaps 1, 2 and 3. The 3rd one scared me senseless - I couldn't even finish it. I really, really hate werewolves.

    Cars at my barn are unlocked. I usually lock mine but I do it out of habit - my keys get tossed on a box for all of the public eye to see.

    This was happening to my mare: I put her on MSM, a ration balancer and gave her access to lots of salt. She devoured the salt, so I think a deficiency was the culprit.

    I got my Springer from a similar set-up. Driving in to pick up my pup was kind of like a weird horror movie - you were suddenly surrounded by dogs, staring at you. I probably wouldn't have chosen...

    This is what she tolerates the best, but I have to do it Very Slowly. Too much water too fast and she screams. She's a drama queen. :lol:

    Also, I should add she is an angel for all other forms of grooming. For a 6 month old pup, she is exceptionally behaved.

    Dog Hates Baths

    I know - what dog doesn't hate baths? But my Springer Spaniel pup is just absolutely terrified.

    She likes water. I know this, because every time we go to the barn she goes straight for the pond....
