    Sheep as a Babysitter?

    Someone suggested to me that I get a ewe to keep my mare company. Apparently they make good companions. Has anyone used one? What are the pros and cons? Are they nice to deal with?

    Wonder if I could dye the white stitching on the nose so it is all black. I am a dressage rider so of course the white stitching on the nose makes me cringe.

    Scope! It took 4 months and 4 scopings to heal my horse's pyloric ulcers. If I had just treated her for a month, I would have assumed it was something else.

    I have an Adam 2 + 1 gooseneck with a dressing room. Yes it is long, but I find a gooseneck more maneuverable as you can make a tighter turn to get into smaller places. It's a pain to back up so I...
