    Girls and concussions

    I stumbled on this article and thought it would be interesting to share, since let's face it, most of the people on this board are women, and teen girls are a huge demographic in the equestrian...

    Not sure about the falling over while asking for the canter thing, but girthing can cause irritation/stimulation to the vagus nerve, which can slow the heart rate and cause fainting.

    I'd say it depends a bit on the dog breed as well. Owning an Italian greyhound without the budget to deal with orthopedic surgery to fix a broken leg is, IMO, irresponsible. Mine girl broke her leg...

    Why would they be pro's? I mean sure some might be getting paid but the whole working student concept kind of revolves around the student paying the instructor for an education with work, rather...

    Perhaps the bucking and leaping was designed to show the mini how young and strong she was. Letting it know it should seek out weaker prey. At least that is what my mare swears when vicious baby...

    I think the term is over used. Pulling it away from deaths door, sure, most anything else, yeah, no. OTTB's are NOT rescues in 99% of situations. Buying a horse who flunked out of his previous...

    I keep mine at home, grabbing it is part of my pre-barn routine. It stays with my paddock boots and half chaps.

    I tried keeping it at the barn, but the time I put it on and a gecko ran out of...

    The whole pony vs horse thing is all vague and shifty regardless of the breed. Seems everyone has different rules. Sometimes its a height only thing. Sometimes a certain breed is considered a...

    I use a flexi for my dogs, but I'm also not a moron about it. Going somewhere with tight quarters, like the vet or the groomer, they have a 6 foot leash. Taking a stroll around the neighborhood...

    I've got an iggy with a lovely outgoing personality, so they are out there, but I agree that they are likely not a good fit here. Not only are they pretty fragile when it comes to broken legs, but...

    OP already mentioned that the BO doesn't know which trainer/lessee is coming because she never gave the BO a name. So the "That person is shady" thing doesn't fly.

    My male dog has a bit of a coin purse. He was neutered late because he is an Italian Greyhound and letting them hit puberty intact stops the growth plates in their fragile little legs. They have...

    I have a feeling the difference between dressage and hunter homes has a lot to do with the differences in the disciplines. Dressage seems to me to be more about bringing a horse along through the...

    I second the move option. You know those suckers are crawling on your counters and your dishes at night. Little disease carrying monsters. Complain to the manager if moving isn't an option, there...

    My cat bit me twice on the hand after she tried to jump off the radiator and got a single toe caught. A cat dangling from one toe is not a happy animal. She bit and bit hard when I grabbed her to...

    So jealous of the lucky COTHers. They are adorable. I have considered a reptilian pet before, always wanted one, but chameleons are the most common one around here and I hear they are...

    Sabino1 isn't found in TB's. She is most likely one of the myriad of dominant whites out there. Though there really isn't much difference between sabino and the dominant whites. They are all...

    There is a reason the magnet is in the stirrup, and plain old metal is in the boot. Do you really want to walk around sticking to every iron containing surface or item? I suppose it's one way to...

    I guess technically I pay for everything by check, but my bank is the one that does the actual printing and mailing of the check. I just use an app to tell them when and where to send it. Trimmer...

    I used Benadryl when my mare itched herself bloody due to mosquitoes. I think I used 3 generic human pills twice a day. Can't show on it because it is (in theory) a sedative. My mare certainly...

    Sabino and dominant white are different mutations of the same gene. That KIT gene we were talking about earlier. I think you are thinking of Sabino as a certain type of color pattern, the jagged,...

    If they are all you say they are they likely have the situation under control and wouldn't need your services. I agree that approaching out of the blue would likely be a turn off for them, and have...

    I love snakes, they are so pretty. Unfortunately they are banned here in Hawaii. :( Too much of an ecological risk. I have to get my scaley kick from the plethora of geckos that inhabit my house....

    A Mustang is nothing like a wolf. A mustang is a domesticated animal that has gone feral. It has thousands of generations of selective breeding for domestication behind it and a few generations in...

    I mentioned Sato because he is from the same bloodlines. He had to get his spots from Puchilingui's chestnut/white gene, so there is a 93% chance Puchi's Rambo also got a chestnut/white gene from...
