    And I also understood that the possibility of another occurrence was fairly high - we shall see with mine, but I'm hoping he does well (he's only 8). My big lab had it a few times in his lifetime,...

    Just went through this with my large chi-cross (20 lbs). He was in the emergency vet for a couple of days on IV and bland diet, and I guess it's been about a month ago and is doing MUCH better. He's...

    OMG, yes. I swore I would NEVER have a small dog. I'm going on 30 concurrent years (and multiple dogs) of chihuahua ownership. GAH!

    As well, you tend to get twisted off with more torque in a deeper seated saddle, simply because it DOES tend to hold you on better, so when you come off, it's with a more dramatic OOMPH. I've always...

    The ONLY thing I've found that work against our severe tick infestation. Not as long-lasting for fleas imho, though. But still lasts long enough to be cost-effective (something like 4 months, so...

    Martin barrel saddles are da bomb (I have a courts, but looked at several Martins first).

    Oh, and FTR, we only used ONE band, not multiple. Might break, might not, when you need to keep your feet in, but much less likely to NOT break if you were thrown. They're not all that strong, and...

    Rubber bands hold your foot in the stirrup when going around a barrel - your heel often comes up a bit to hold the shoulder off, and it sucks to lose a stirrup. I barrel raced for 30 years and never...

    That "never run to a wreck" advice is something my old-time horseman uncle taught me. Take the time to think through the situation, get what you need to deal with it, and WALK if possible. There are...

    Just my own personal experience but my trainer has one of his babies, and we are just now getting into putting him to work (he's 3 now). THE steadiest baby I've ever been around - I've handled him...

    Can you arrange for one of the trainers to give he and his friends a "guided" tour? That might satisfy them while still keeping the animals supervised. If not, then I would say no.

    Ah yes, open window season for me means possums and raccoons meandering through the yard, and my small dog going ballistic. He was much better when I put our bed on the ground (he can't see out the...

    Mine both eat kibble, with a tiny bit of warm water. The puppy wouldn't eat it at first so I put decreasing amounts of the crap wet food she'd been eating at the shelter over it to wean her into...

    I guess my daughter is lucky that none of the dogs she's tested have killed anyone :P. They do temperament test at her shelter (using many of the listed techniques) as well as testing them with...

    What mommy peanut said, seems to be the trend among my friends. A lot of us are still feeding TOTW (aka ground glass shavings) but I do mix it up with a bit of raw (frozen, at least) and other...

    FWIW, if I suspect a horse has colic, I do vitals first, call the vet 2nd, and if i don't think anything is actually going on I still do at least one night check. I withdraw feed (which is not good...

    NICE! I agree about the meaning of "the look." My pom cross has a "Santa's Little Helper" t-shirt, and an Elf costume, but your angel costume is MUCH nicer :)

    In general, that tends to be the way young cowboys are, so I wasn't surprised by that part, LL. In fact I felt like they were actually much kinder than most of the cowboys that I've been related to...

    In this case, especially, because I totally get the worry and sympathize with your feelings, I would just research carefully and take her to the best vet in your area. I had to have my chi bitch...

    That facility probably might be a good fit - the weather can affect turnout there but they take EXCELLENT care of the horses (I know - I work there when the regular barn manager goes on vacation). ...
