    I had my Westie euthanized when he collapsed and couldn't get up -- for the second time. he was obviously fading quickly

    Right now I have a 14 year old dog who is becoming incontinent and has a...

    Very similar to my experience. I bought one used. It was incredibly well balanced for me. It fit my TB for about a year and then it started making him sore. It had foam panels so I opted to sell it...

    I would most definitely call the police, tell them you are uncomfortable with this man's behavior and ask for an escort to your car.

    I am a New Yorker. I grew up walking down the street and...

    I see this as an extension of long-lining and agree. When I was pregnant I did a lot of long lining and work-in-hand. The hardest part is finding someone who teaches it.

    Learn to long line. Great way to start lateral work, establish a good, working connection. Absolutely not just for horses just started under saddle. You can do SO much work in hand!

    The keys to finding a used saddle for a great price?

    1. Not really needing one. I frequently find saddles when I'm trying to help someone else find a saddle . . . or I'm trying to prove a point...

    Are you comfortable with how the PPE vet performed the flexion tests? Some vets flex to the point where almost all horses look lame. If you are concerned, maybe you should have your own vet out?

    You are never going to negate the influence that his parents had on him during his childhood. Even if they are not worried about him, you know he's safe and surrounded by people. So you don't have to...

    Glad to hear how much progress you've made. I second the lateral work. When my TB starts to jig, he immediately goes into shoulder in.

    Maybe it's just that there are an unusual number of people who post here with their problems but it seems that a large % of custom saddles aren't made right the first time. And that involves more...

    I have never figured out why so many custom saddles don't fit when they are delivered.

    It is very hard and extremely tiring to try to be in someone elses head. Even though it may seem selfish to you (because he has you wrapped up in his depression) remember to be kind to yourself and...

    It depends on whether you are looking for a new saddle or having your current saddles evaluated.

    My fitter does not sell saddles. I have mine either evaluate saddles that I'm considering or adjust...

    Probably because there are some people who have very bad reactions to the medications.

    Also, there is some conflicting evidence about the efficacy of ADs.

    That's why you need to have a good...

    Maybe. I believe it is possible to treat some people's depression without meds, but not all.

    As the spouse of someone who has suffered with depression, I can tell you that belief has prevented my...

    For us, a supportive environment has been:
    - not having alcohol in the house for many years as drinking made him feel worse
    - planning time to go for a walk (but trying not to get angry when he...

    My husband got worse in his 30s and then got better (he's 57 now). He's a very accomplished person but has had difficulty seeing what he's done is worthwhile.

    In terms of finding him a therapist,...

    I have been married for 26 years to a man who suffers from depression. One of the things that I have learned is that I cannot solve it for him. I can try to make the environment he's in more...

    Glad to read that you found a horse that you can ride now in the sport that you enjoy.

    Owning racehorses is not for the faint hearted. What's the best way to win a small fortune in racing? Start...

    If she's not holding her weight, she needs more calories. Doesn't matter what the vet says is "ideal."

    Personally, I'd start by adding more TC Senior -- even just 1 pound a day more. It's a nice,...

    My horse is a reasonably hard keeper. I use nibblenets to keep the hay contained and reduce waste. I use the 1.5" nets and my horse has no trouble eating out of it.

    2 # of TC senior/day is not much. I wonder if that diet is meeting her nutritional needs. I believe that the minimum amount recommended for a horse by Triple Crown is 5#. I feed 4#/day to my mare but...

    I know a couple of people who've ordered saddles from Kent & Masters. They've been really happy with them. I rode in one when hunting their horse last year and really liked it. Not too much $$ either.
