    It is possible to OVERCONDITION the heart muscle. Human marathoners have died as a result of this sort of stress. So are the horses too fit, or not fit enough? Or are these freak accidents or a...

    Paraphrase of g&b: "They're not dead, and [according to you] they don't have any major problems."

    Well, you're the same person who thinks it's okay to leave horses without water for 8-12 hours a...

    Yes let me point out that horses often will not drink very cold water. Sooo if you don't want to provide water, you can justify it by saying they won't drink it anyway. ;) (sigh)

    Or you could do...

    I learned long ago that greysandbays has a funny way of spewing "gospel" and then bitching at others for coming up with actual data that refutes it. I thought maybe he/she had outgrown that (and the...

    But is leaving horses without water ideal? In my world, if it's going to freeze, you buy a frickin heater for the bucket. Horses need water, period. At all times. Maybe yours haven't died yet, but...

    This would be considered incredibly rude, especially in a presentation ceremony where they announce your number/name and hand out the ribbon. Better to take it and thank the organizer, then return it...

    I had a custom pair of dress boots made about...6 years ago. Just got them re-soled this year. They are gorgeous and very comfortable. Fit perfectly, too...when I was 14. Had the calves stretched a...

    I think someone posted earlier on the thread who has heard the founder of Schleese (whose last name is, duh, Schleese) speak, and he pronounced it either Schlay-sah or Schlee-sah, I forget which. :)

    No it doesn't. I have always heard Schlay-sah, though it might be Shlee-sah. Definitely not schleeze.

    OK if anyone else tries to say that Hermes is pronounced Her-meez, I'm going to scream. It's Air-mez. I've been to their original saddle-making shop in Paris. It's Air-mez. No more!

    Trah-KAY-ner.

    Hermes is AIR-mez (gleaned this both from my fluent friend and from visiting the store in Paris)

    Pikeur is pie-kur.

    Ah--I think I realized what books I was trying to remember.

    Piper at the Gate, The Heavenly Horse from the Outermost West...anyone else read those?

    So, JHUShoer20, my question isn't worthy of an answer?

    Please tell me you didn't attend Hopkins.

    Banamine, Rompun, Torbugesic.

    Banamine is used, not Bute, because it has anti-endotoxic effects. Bute works primarily on the musculoskeletal system and therefore is not effective against colic...

    Of course! Why should horses stand in dirty stalls just because it's a holiday?

    No, pit bull type dogs are usually American Staffordshire Terriers (AKC) or American Pit Bull Terriers (UKC).

    After question #2. But I also wouldn't have bought anything there, and probably would have complained to the manager/owner. Totally unacceptable and ridiculous behavior from someone who is supposed...

    Here's an example. Both groups have stated the same goal. While I agree that it does not demonstrate affiliation, it does demonstrate that HSUS is just as dangeous to animal owners as PETA is.

    Um, hello, I answered your question already. They are a COVER (in caps since you missed it the first time). They might do things consistent with being a legit organization, such as asking for...

    HSUS is a *cover* for PETA. They may do things that appear to be consistent with being a real shelter organization, but they are just as insane. The new legislation (spaying and neutering early,...

    I think if it's an SPCA, you're okay. The problem is specifically the group "HSUS". Some of the shelters in the US are called Humane Societies, but I don't think that necessarily means they are under...

    Thanks guys. Spread the word about HSUS. I mentioned it on UDBB (can we not say that acronym?) and they literally said "bullshit". Heads in the sand...
