    I have a call into Sharon (left a VM) because of all the good things I've heard about Tim :)

    If they can't accommodate the mare, I'll move to the next on the list; it would be ideal (in a perfect...

    AKB--the plan is to keep the mare in work over the winter, and do some schooling dressage shows with her (and a jumper show or two); the owner will be back to riding her (after knee surgery) by...
  3. Cross country "tune up boot camp" for young mare in NoVa--Windchase the best option?

    One of my students has a 6 year mare (homebred TB) who would benefit from some cross country mileage/training under a strong, experienced pro who has a good record with greenies--in particular...

    Thanks, AKB. How is the footing? Are there any downhill questions? We are working on getting this student's mare more comfortable with downhill jumps--her one and only "issue"; she's small and catty,...
  5. Looking for loading help in the Warrenton VA area--anyone know of someone good?

    Posting this for a student :)

    She's been having loading issues with her horse, and the woman she contacted for help continues to "flake out" on her and cancel appointments (or not get back to...

    Thanks, Zu Zu! :) Yes, I thought so--hence my query thread. I was unpleasantly surprised to see this, but I won't complain; I've been lucky lately (knock wood!), so it was only a matter of time...

    I think the sharps disposal fee is probably reasonable (and certainly doesn't measurably pad the bill!), but I think the dispensing charge is a new "fee" they have added to the vet bills--not having...

    Interesting responses.

    Yes, I thought it was odd (and new to me, for this practice), and though I DID expect the $500 vet bill, it was still a bit. Um. Painful.

    Especially when itemized, it...

    Too cool :winkgrin:

    Please "regale" us with the full details--and good luck!!

    I wish upon you a *relatively* low number of entries in your division (and in the divisions preceding yours), NO...
  11. New fee on vet bill for "dispensing medication"...Is this now commonplace?

    It's been awhile (thank you God!) since I've gotten a bill from my vet for anything "not routine", but about 5 weeks ago, my 2 year old filly got bitten or stung by something--or possibly had an...
  12. Thanks, Beam Me Up :)

    Thanks, Beam Me Up :)
  13. Hunt Club Farm's x-country course--looking for feedback :)

    One of my students is planning to enter the Starter Trial on the 18th, and we were hoping to get a description of the course(s) in advance, since we've never been there. (This will be her second...

    Are there scrapes on the leg? If so, she could be having an inflammatory reaction--which could potentially become cellulitis.

    My 2 year old filly got bitten by something last month (I surmise,...

    Thanks, Mango--yes, the student (who wants to school there) saw this--but it's a bit vague. I wonder whether they will go back to having open schooling by appt. after the HT??

    Obviously I'm not...
  16. Surefire Farms x-country schooling day(s) next week?

    They are scheduled to have one the Tuesday after the HT this weekend, but does anyone know whether the course will be open for schooling on any other day(s)?

    I'm asking in case one of the COTH...
  17. Excess iron in water and forage--a more common problem than we used to think

    and is there any way to remedy this?

    The farm where I board (using well water) has a very high iron content in the water (you can sometimes see it, and I've tasted it :( ), and in fact since the...

    Thanks! I was under the impression that it lasted a good bit longer than that (or so says my BM, who has used it before and has had more experience with it :) )

    In the past, I've used the...

    Half life of Acepromazine paste

    Just curious; how long will/do the effects last? (I'm not sure of the dosage given, but it would be approximately equal to 1, 1 1/2 ccs of the injectable.)

    Dang, it sounds like alters are used for all sorts of "nefarious purposes"!

    As usual, the people who behave like asshats make it difficult for others--who play nice--to be treated fairly. :sigh:
