    Exactly right, SmartAlex! I have had little dental pain as an adult, but the mental agony is another thing entirely. I don't think it makes me any more inclined to get a root canal should I need...

    I think Warren Buffet put it best, when he said his secretary paid more (as a percentage of her income) in taxes than he did. I think that's another way to say what Sswor is saying.

    I have a pretty severe dental phobia myself, so you absolutely have my sympathy!

    I've already thought that if I ever needed a root canal I would just have the tooth pulled. I cannot stand the...

    If I were the OP, all these scary stories would be freaking me out!

    99% of the time -- ninety nine percent! -- things go well and smoothly. They will for you too, OP.

    There is no one magic bullet with tick prevention. Tick tubes are good, but not really effective in my opinion.

    find out what spray they are using; almost certainly it is permethrin.

    For the record, I opted for the farther away hospital because it was better and did have a NICU (vs. our rural hospital *with no anasthesiologist available 24/7*). The farther away hospital was an...

    I have locust posts (and oak top boards). They were put in 10 years ago, and look pretty much the same as the day they went in.

    Since they are as good if not better than pressure treated, why...

    If you go with the farther away doctor, you'll be giving birth in a hospital that far away. Do you really want a 2 hour drive home with a brand new baby??

    Is there no middle ground? A practice...

    Just to be clear, I was not saying the place wasn't on the up and up, or that it had a bad reputation, just to think about the idea of not stalling a horse who's taking time off to recover.

    And I...

    Good luck!

    As someone who does pasture boarding, just a couple of things for you to think about --

    If you are going to give a horse time off/let down, you could consider 24/7 turnout, as many...

    It is a very gray area (and, I have MY horse leased out to a nice, fairly inexperienced family, though they too are at a bigger barn and are very active in Pony club)

    It could be fine, right? You...

    LauraKY has good advice.

    The permethrin I bought was on sale several years ago; it was adjacent to the equine section but maybe in with cow stuff (in my store, it was along the outside wall, vs....

    Not directed at the OP per se, but just remember that really good, long established retirement barns often have waiting lists (I believe Paradigm does, though of course I can't speak for them). I...

    I think the time when the child is unsupervised/needs the ability to get in touch is a good time to get a phone. My own boys have all gotten phones upon graduation from 8th grade (when their school...

    This bears repeating. I am in the epicenter of the Lyme disease epidemic. You can try equispot, it never worked for me. I use concentrated permethrin (bought at Tractor Supply) which I then...

    Just chiming in to say that as a small BO I probably have a bias in favor of BO's . . . but not this time! OP you sound like a great boarder, dealing with a difficult situation. Good luck to you --...

    FYI I have tried fly predators three years in a row, and they did absolutely nothing for me. Has your BO tried them? I understand they do work for some set ups. I suspect that since we have cows...

    Wait a minute! I see nothing at all wrong about using derogatory terms when a horse is being bad!!

    I most certainly cannot write what I call a horse that does something that might hurt me -- I've...

    This is so true. (And I believe Buck Branaman said the same thing).

    My own take on this is that since YOU know the meaning of the demeaning words, you cannot help but have the words' meaning...
