    I insult my horses, but they don't really have insulting nicknames.

    Some other horses do have their own special names..

    There's a chestnut mare at my barn that I call Emmaline. No one else calls her that, but I prefer it to her "real" name.

    Hey Sarah, do you have any new Drunk Travis, Shirtless Evan, or Creepy Dan stories?

    Holding my finger to my lips = Stop Panting!
    Sweeping my finger across my neck = STOP PANTING!

    Back in his younger, more athletic, less deaf days, my dog understood "go eat the kitty" to mean "go...

    Re: Christmas lights

    Guys, she lives in Buffalo. We couldn't see grass until, like, 2 weeks ago. I wouldn't be in a hurry to take lights down either.

    I've talked to my (non-quack) vet about her. IIRC, she has been reported, but the state didn't do anything. Maybe one of the horses she's "vaccinated" has to get rabies for the state to care.

    I know a DVM (from Cornell, I think) who is a total quack... she uses acupuncture, crystals, and feeling energy to diagnose animals, and uses herbs to cure them. She writes bogus rabies...

    It is crappy to not leave a note. While parking the horse trailer at Cornell last year, I misjudged a turn and scraped someone's bumper. I left a note with my name and phone number. Unfortunately,...

    Ooh, yikes, Bensmom! I facebook-know someone who had a tibial plateau fracture and it's been a nightmare for her, but hopefully hers was unusually bad and/or yours is unusually good.

    Tore my ACL May 20, 2010. Had it repaired (hamstring graft) late July (delay in surgery due to the fact that my other leg was broken and ACL surgery had to wait until the broken leg was reasonably...

    I get this phone call so often....

    Patient: I'd like to make an appointment.
    Me: Okay, is there a day or a time that works best for you?
    Patient: Next week would be good.
    Me: ...Okay, and...

    There are a LOT, but so far that's the only surprise.


    How does it not make sense? The wolf tried to be conniving in order to do harm (eat the sheep), and his attempt backfired on him (shepherd...
  13. "Wolf in sheep's clothing" not what you think!

    I've been reading Aesop's fables1 and was very surprised to read the fable of The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing. Never having actually read the fable, I always though the moral of the story was "beware...

    I try to get plenty of sleep so I'm not over-stressing my body. If I have a sore throat, I'll use cough drops. Otherwise nothing. There's nothing you can do about a cold (which is viral) except...

    Your husband is an ignorant jerk. No one's asking him to take pills, so he and his idiotic opinions can take a long walk off a short pier.

    I knew a horse who developed that. It was a copper deficiency, as TheJenners suggested. Try supplementing with something that has copper.

    The hoof trimming is the least of his concerns. I agree with the others that it may be time to think about letting him go. But unless his feet are really bad or grow really fast, I wouldn't worry...

    Okay, this may make me a terrible person, but that table cracked me up. 0-4 is a full line or two detailing the condition of the person. 5 is just "Dead". Not even the more official sounding...

    Reading it through, I can only assume this is an early April Fools' prank.

    They don't do placebos in this sort of case. It's new treatment protocol vs current treatment protocol. It would be highly unethical to deny treatment to a seriously ill person.

    No suggestions for trainers, just wanted to say I'll be seeing you in Buffalo on 3/26!

    You're welcome to come ride my horse, though! (About 30 minutes from Buffalo.)
