    My cat bit me twice on the hand after she tried to jump off the radiator and got a single toe caught. A cat dangling from one toe is not a happy animal. She bit and bit hard when I grabbed her to...

    So jealous of the lucky COTHers. They are adorable. I have considered a reptilian pet before, always wanted one, but chameleons are the most common one around here and I hear they are...

    Sabino1 isn't found in TB's. She is most likely one of the myriad of dominant whites out there. Though there really isn't much difference between sabino and the dominant whites. They are all...

    Most of this tracking stuff is just so they can better tailor services to you. Like the grocery store thing. Your purchasing habits help them tailor their stores services. They aren't looking at...

    My husband has been an extra in Hawaii 5-0 in three episodes. He has had to turn them down a couple of times too. Apparently they have a hard time finding Asian extras, which shocks me seeing as...

    There is a reason the magnet is in the stirrup, and plain old metal is in the boot. Do you really want to walk around sticking to every iron containing surface or item? I suppose it's one way to...

    I guess technically I pay for everything by check, but my bank is the one that does the actual printing and mailing of the check. I just use an app to tell them when and where to send it. Trimmer...

    Even with immersion, you can get good, but never native speaker good. That incorporates all aspect of a language, including accent. Our brains as adults just can't do it. Our brains basically...

    The military actually has a test, the Defense Language Aptitude Battery, that tests your aptitude for language learning. Just like physical skills it is indeed a trait that you can have varying...

    I used Benadryl when my mare itched herself bloody due to mosquitoes. I think I used 3 generic human pills twice a day. Can't show on it because it is (in theory) a sedative. My mare certainly...

    Mandarin is very difficult. Not saying don't go for it, but understand that learning it is going to take much, much longer than learning a romance language. I learned Korean, a language who's...

    I love my Surface. I got the older version, right after the new ones came out. It was right around $250, with a keyboard. It does take a bit to get used to the windows tablet operating system, but...

    Sabino and dominant white are different mutations of the same gene. That KIT gene we were talking about earlier. I think you are thinking of Sabino as a certain type of color pattern, the jagged,...

    If they are all you say they are they likely have the situation under control and wouldn't need your services. I agree that approaching out of the blue would likely be a turn off for them, and have...

    I love snakes, they are so pretty. Unfortunately they are banned here in Hawaii. :( Too much of an ecological risk. I have to get my scaley kick from the plethora of geckos that inhabit my house....

    A Mustang is nothing like a wolf. A mustang is a domesticated animal that has gone feral. It has thousands of generations of selective breeding for domestication behind it and a few generations in...

    I mentioned Sato because he is from the same bloodlines. He had to get his spots from Puchilingui's chestnut/white gene, so there is a 93% chance Puchi's Rambo also got a chestnut/white gene from...

    You may have to treat him like a child. Obviously try not to be demeaning about it, but that is just the fact of life. If he can't take care of himself he needs someone to help him with it. Sit...

    KIT is the name of the gene who's variations are responsible for many of the white patterns found on horses. Tobiano, Sabino, Dominant White (your girls) and Classic Roan are all variations of the...

    DNA testing could likely tell, from an "in the lab" standpoint, you wouldn't be able to tell from the current style of DNA test results.

    Not to mention that the link isn't 100%. It is very very...

    Nope. It's still 50/50. The "KIT" gene handles Tobiano, The various Sabino/Whites and Classic Roan colorings, and it's a straight 50/50 sort of thing.

    One thing to note, Puchilingui was...

    This guy is a cutie. He's got a nice curious expression and seems relaxed in the pens, which bodes well for his trainability. And you never know, he may grow into that head. ...

    I believe it was used in combination with poling, but I have never done it, nor seen it done, so I have no idea about the actual mechanics or effectiveness. I agree that just hitting the poles would...

    I agree with the folks above who say if you really want a mustang go adopt one from the pens or a prison program. And if you do go to the pens LISTEN to the wranglers about which horses are the most...

    It wouldn't do anything. The copper only works while the pigment is being laid down into the hair shaft. So it only works during the spring and fall sheds, when the new hair is coming in. It's not...
