    They have a lot of room and company. I bet the overhead fireworks will scare them silly the first few blasts, but they'll run around and then they'll settle down and start grazing again soon. It's...

    Ah, COTH never fails when one is looking for support. :lol:

    All eight young ones are happily roosting in the hen house tonight. Along with my five adults. Despite the fact that the guys in the...

    They help with flies. And they lay eggs.
  4. Turned this year's chicks out in the pasture today

    Posting here so I don't go hovering over them.:lol:

    They're almost eight weeks old. My second batch.

    Last year's dozen are down to five now. Thanks to hawks (accounted for 1); deer dogs...

    Yes, even though I think OTTB's are not a good first horse for anyone - I know one who is an absolute sweetheart. She's not her owner's first horse, but she is a challenge.

    The great thing...

    Exactly what I was thinking. They just wanted to get rid of this one. Can't believe anyone felt like this was the best match for a first time horse owner (this is what they told OP as per her first...

    Talk to your doctor about Wellbutrin. It will help you quit smoking and take the edge off the worrying. I've been quit about a year and a half now, and I can stop myself worrying now when I catch...

    They'll be fine. I just weaned my horse off his grazing muzzle. He had to wear one because I moved him from a boarding stable with no grass back to my farm with an acre and a half of grass.

    Yes,...

    I'd send him back. But then, I have QHs for a reason. :) Horses are meant to make us happy. Why have a horse who makes you unhappy? (I feel the same way about husbands :lol:).

    Seriously, OP,...

    Oh, I don't know, I can see the allure. Personally I like an aloof temperament and don't mind the occasional aggressive outburst. I don't have kids and live so far out in the country that I have...

    One of the best dogs I ever knew was a Norwegian Elkhound (even though she carried her tail over her back :D ). Back in the day, they could be very sharp, but the conformation breeders at least got...

    I wondered. I had chows for decades, and they sound very much alike. I remember when I was showing chows, a fellow handler told me, "You can't trust anything that carries its tail over its back." ...

    Ha. My pony - who is known as pAin't Misbehavin' for a reason - did that to me once.

    Turns out it was my fault, though. I was a green green beginner, and the first time I put my bridle together...

    This is an issue completely and totally dependent on the law in your state.

    In some states, an injured person has to prove you either knew or should've known your dog was likely to bite someone...

    S'okay with me, really. I rarely visit the OT forum. Which is weird, because when we had it only on special occasions I would read it faithfully. Anyway, if it's gone forever it's fine with me.

    Oh, glad to know it's not just me.

    I finally got where I could post something reasonable about taking down the Confederate flag in the wake of the awful tragedy at Emmanuel AME in Charleston. ...

    Oh, yes, Greenguard has been in touch. :) I am very impressed with their follow up and customer service. I ordered the muzzle a few weeks ago and have gotten several emails asking how it was...

    Greenguard muzzle rubbing

    Saturday I put a Greenguard muzzle on my horse. Sunday morning I noticed rubs around the halter noseband, so I added some fleece wraps.

    Today I see a large rub on the point of his chin where it's...

    I don't know, but let's hope so. Imagine the tickets you could sell to a DQ cage match. :lol: It'd be way better than a cockfight. We could fund a rescue with the profits. :D

    Don't bother. We've all heard that tired old argument before. Irrelevant then irrelevant now.

    I don't get it either. I thought Sandy Hook would convince people we need meaningful gun control if anything would.
  22. So you're saying you really have nothing...

    So you're saying you really have nothing meaningful to contribute then? I believe we are in agreement on that point.

    I don't know. I'm not in Columbia. Probably is true. The state and US flags are flown over the state capitol building. The Stars and Bars have been moved to a memorial off to the side of the...

    OK, so let's hear your proposal for how we get meaningful gun legislation passed. President Obama and Vice President Biden campaigned hard for it after Sandy Hook. Can't get the votes. What's your...

    Were you paying attention after Sandy Hook? The Executive Branch tried its damnedest at that point. I agree with the other poster who said if those deaths didn't create a groundswell of support for...
