    ^I've kept planted tanks for years. That should not happen. The only thing I can think of is that not enough light, plants, fertilizers or CO2 were used and over time the plants gave up. If there is...

    Boxers are funny. They can either be couch potatoes or they can be as high energy as a border collie/jack russell/whatever other high energy dog you can think of. Before you attempt any training...

    When I had my stent put in I wasn't very coherent and I would have died without it....so I didn't get much, 'this is what it will be like if you do get it in' talk. About 2 weeks after the surgery I...

    It largely depends on the state and from what I gather my state is one of the tougher ones for obtaining a teaching cert. To my understanding there are some states which allow you to get certified...

    I have a BS in An Sci. I had some major life changes happen in my senior year of school that meant I had to live in a certain area and be available for my family. Unfortunately, it seemed the only...

    Goldfish are incredibly resilient until suddenly they aren't. They probably died from the heat. Goldfish are cold water fish and can't tolerate those temps for very long. Heck I can't think of many...

    I have a neat story from my family who were the first, not including the natives of course, to settle an area of Pa in the late 1700's. It was the first members of my family to cross the pond and...

    If this poor woman is your definition of the weird boarder that you think every barn seems to have then I think you've lived a pretty sheltered life.

    I bet they are thinking that YOU are that one...

    I live in NEPA and there have been countless cougar sightings around here. All you have to do is get a group of people together and ask if they have seen any around. I know of several very reliable...

    Personally I would get her the horse. The teen years are the best time in your life to own a horse (well so far I'm only 33 now). Once you get to college/young adult/setting up your career/having...

    A few years ago I was showing at my very small barn, where I boarded with a few other people. The BO got a few of her other friends to come and show. I think there was maybe 10 of us there. We...

    We've got a Shiba. I used to say they are cat-like dogs but that isn't quite right, though I can't quite put my finger on why. I think it's more realistic to say that they are more like a wild...

    I love goldfish aquariums. The biggest thing with keeping a goldfish in a tank is to be mindful that they produce a LOT of waste. This means that you really have to be on top of water changes and...

    Ugh. We had that for nearly two years straight when a scum bag neighbor moved in and let his horses basically free roam because they had poor grazing and a 16" tall fence. AC didn't want to do...

    I belong to the generation that created facebook. I don't use it, despite me being fairly tech savvy. I'm a school teacher and my life is exposed enough as it is because of that. I have seen so...

    OP, first of all jingles for your poor horse (and you and your wallet as well).

    I've acted as a BM, owned my own farm for a few years and have boarded, so I have seen it all. IMHO if the...

    IMHO Horseguard is the only way to go for electric fences. I've used many other forms of electric fence. Their tape is the best hands down.

    IME it's not MY dog who's behavior I have to worry about. It's the behavior of all the other nincompoops who let their dogs roam around on those retractable leashes and not pay attention at all. If...

    I can speak more from the human side of things but horses and humans are different. First of all horses have a much more variable gestation than humans. Mares can go to 11 months give or take a...

    If she's like some of the yappy dog owners I know she probably thinks that she is just letting poopsie say hello to the nice horsies.

    I would let her dog teach the horses to not freak at yappy,...

    Oooo I like the ideas listed so far but to quickly add, pass throughs in pastures next to all gates are a must for me. Stupid pet peeve I know but I can't stand opening a gate to lock it behind me,...

    Good luck OP. I fought this issue for close to a year. The neighbors and I called AC and cops repeatedly. AC did nothing. The cops would come out but stopped coming after a month or so. Apparently...

    Dumb question here but wouldn't it just be better to change the length of your stirrups at a halt instead of a trot or canter. That just seems like an accident waiting to happen. Thoughts of texting...
