    Interesting. With a dog, you'd just use a clicker and train them to tolerate the muzzle by just holding it in your hand while they touched it, then work up to putting it on in stages, so that it's...

    By no means do I condone this mare's condition, but a small part of me wonders if her thinness might have aided in what was apparently a complication-free delivery of twins.

    Yeah, they just thought it was cute, didn't even notice the mare. One said, "Oh is the mare hurt?" Once it's pointed out, they get it.

    Just saw this on twitter, linked as "Twin foals, so cute!" Took one look at the mare and came here. I knew I couldn't be the only one. I'm tweeting now to educate about mare's emaciated condition...

    25 of your fellow COTH'ers have sent a little something in support of the hard-working donkeys and horses and their owners in Gambia.

    This is not simply for the animals. A HEALTHY WORKING EQUINE...

    Info from their page:



    If you go to the site, click Online Giving and scroll way way down you'll come to the section about donating halters and bits.

    Thanks so much for thinking of that!

    Bump for the "nice" thread title. ;)

    Donkeys need something in their little stockings too!

    It's one nice thing about this organization--even though it's based in the UK/Gambia, that justgiving.com page makes it really easy to donate dribbles.

    Please, no one hesitate to use the page,...

    Who carried Mary to Bethlehem?

    Whatever holiday you celebrate this season, or any season, there's a donkey involved!

    And horses too, because our western civilization is built on the hard work of equines. We wouldn't be...

    Second the recommendation for the "Activate your Horse's Core" book and stretches.

    The book shows how to do them with carrots. I found my horse a bit too "eager" for direct carrot-luring, ended...

    I totally agree that it's not the clicker that is crucial, but "clicker training" has unfortunately ended up as the catch-all term for positive reinforcement methods.

    What new dog owners (and...

    I am a dedicated clicker trainer. That said, I don't actually think it's all that "user-friendly" if by user, you mean the trainer.

    It's actually FAR more easy for the animal, and FAR more...

    I figure Charlotte wears a helmet at FEI, and I wanna be just like her when I grow up! (Even if she could be my granddaughter, hey.)

    Every dribble counts! Thank you, StGermain.

    If one wishes to go to a slightly stronger dribble, perhaps a small flow, £15.00 ($23.47) will purchase a padded harness in Gambia:

    Sure, they might. I certainly wouldn't give an unqualified "no." Mares lick their foals, horses do mutual grooming and scratching, this would be a natural carryover into adulthood in some horses,...

    Yikes, I must say it would be disconcerting to have my trainer or BO snapping photos while I lay on the ground waiting for an ambulance.

    Not to say kinda scary.

    I tend to think it's not intentional. Once I'm in a thread, the single column is not squashed. It's as if the multiple columns on forum pages are set to limited width, but no word wrap so words and...

    All pages loading slowly and jerkily. Just feels like there's something wrong in the back end, as Belg noted.

    On edit: Also, in Firefox, the columns are cut off on the right in the forum view.

    Makes my eyes hurt. I can tell the diff between subject and poster just fine in the same color.
