    I was asked by PM for an update, sorry to take so long with it, I had a funeral.

    At court, the judge said the horses look fine, and the cop and prosecuting attorney both agreed I hadn't broken any...

    Actually, I did take Momma cat to the vet. I'm not sure where you get the idea that I did not. I take all the cats to the vet, who's name and contact info are on the blog, and all are up to date on...

    Guys - I am happy to answer any and all questions anyone might have. I really did mean this as a cautionary tale for everyone. I know plenty of folks don't keep EVERY receipt, and I'm not the only...

    ;) I know everyone had a bad winter. Here we've had literally 30's one day, 70's the next, rain, rain, hail, more rain, ticks and all sorts of nasties are loving it but the horses are shedding...

    Thanks for your kind words.
    If it helps, I get a steady delivery of 3 round bales every other weekend and I did have grain on hand - which I get every Saturday. The alfalfa pellets were not the only...

    Yes, it's me, and yes, there are witnesses. Never intended for that to be a secret.
    To clear some things up, yes, we are looking to move to NC, I most certainly DO have a job, as does my husband,...
  7. Crazy overstepping of authority - this could happen to any of us.

    You have to read this. With food on the property, proof of lots of vet care, with horses obviously recovering from illness, still, all it takes is a good ol' boy on a power trip and life as you know...

    Have you thought about finding a good large pony stallion? There are several excellent Connemaras standing in Canada - including a couple I wish we could get here!

    I have Leghorns and I LOVE them. They free range like mad and I confess, I really only feed them in winter. The rest of the year it's a handful of grain at night to keep them coming into the coop,...

    You know, from the sounds of your situation, you should do both.

    Going from a single old dog to a puppy at this stage of your life is going to be a serious change for you. And I can see you are...

    I do a lot of rescue and so I can tell you from very first hand experience that rescue is far from a crapshoot and unless you have very specific needs, you can find what you want. And, as you...

    I have that exact one, and love it.
    I am all of 5'2" and find it very easy to dump.
    The only issue I had was a flat tire, but if you'd seen the ground I've pulled it over, you'd forgive it. Every...

    You're going to have to set him up to fail, and make it a self-correcting exercise.

    You say he's a rescue pup, so I'm going to assume you haven't had him long. Work on some positive reinforcement...

    Technically, if it doesn't have papers, it's a mutt, so I'd list it as such.

    I'd also tell the tenants to get the dog fixed and get a Canine Good Citizen certification on it. Most insurance...

    AK = Alaska There might be one, but I don't think that's what you mean.

    If you mean Little Rock AR (Arkansas) I live a couple of hours away and there is very, very little English riding at all. I...

    Horses can get hurt so many ways ... I once saw one rip an eyelid nearly off rubbing his face on a cinderblock wall. They just have this amazing ability to find the one, teeny thing that can hurt...

    I have a 6 gallon mini-tank in my house that I LOVE.
    Mini-tanks, like the ones above, are not the same as on-demand and take a lot less to run than an on-demand heater. While it's not enough for...
