    Desensitizing is great, but not really effective here. Mine are fine with gunfire and the random fireworks on days leading up to the 4th. Over the years, they've gotten used to that. But on the 4th,...

    Foam cat toys (little balls) work great as earplugs and are cheap at the pet store. I have in the past gotten my guys all used to them prior to the 4th so I could use them then.

    I use real drugs....

    Make sure and check the exclusions, however, as there is always a pretty long list of them. I love VTO and usually shop the sales, but the exclusions always get me in the end (I forget to look, plan...

    And being in WA, probably idiots (shooting fireworks despite the conditions) all around, just like me!:mad:

    There are a lot of us in this state, I think, that are feeling this way. I live in an area that is treed and brushy and on a hillside, homes scattered all over -- lots of fuel to burn and it won't...

    For some people, just having the wider treads will help, so you might try some of those. I am not a fan of any of the jointed type irons -- they make me feel too loose in my base. But I have the...

    I've used the HorsePreRace pentosan in the past when the US compounding pharmacies were having trouble getting pentosan -- had no issue at all with the HPR stuff and felt it worked as well as the...

    I have used it on some of mine but always do a test spot first to see if they are going to have an adverse reaction before doing the whole application. I have one horse that is very sensitive to many...

    Surprised that OP said shingles were more expensive than metal -- when we built, we found the opposite to be true. We went with architectural shingles that match our house and I've been happy with...

    Don't forget to check craigslist in your area. I've purchased some great jumps that way -- a bunch of the super expensive Premier PVC ones with wings, walls, and such for about what one wall would...

    Fly spray burn would be my guess as well. If you read the reviews of the Outsmart version, it is a fairly common complaint.

    I've only heard this term used to describe when the shoe is fit with not enough heel support -- often done in these parts by a shoer trying to "fix" a horse that pulls shoes. I'd suspect in this case...

    Ultrasound guided injection of my horse's neck last year ran around $500 for the injections, plus $100 or so sedation, plus farm call. I believe it involved 3 facets from both sides of the neck. I...
