    I just do the homemade salt recipe. It's way more affordable than the commercial products and I don't have a horse that picks around it, so no need for pellets.

    Sort of, but not really. The instructor is the one running the business, and it's the instructor's responsibility to set the business policies. Not the client's.

    If you have reasons for wanting to...

    I find it really helpful to have someone video my tests. Camera phone is fine--it doesn't need to be professional video. But I can watch it at home and compare the video to the score sheet. I can...

    It makes sense to me.

    In the H/J world, leases are much more common in general. There's an understanding that the horse that can teach the kid cross rails is probably different than the horse that...

    Unless people who appreciate the tough but fair judges praise them to show management as much as--if not more than--people who complain about them, show management is going to continue to hire the...

    Yes, basically. I drop her off in my kennel, and they will leave her in that (no transfer to a hospital kennel). When they are ready to work on her, they'll put the entire kennel in a sealed...

    I am taking my semi-feral cat in on Monday.

    They have an induction chamber so they can leave her in the kennel, sedate her, take her out, do what they need to do, and put her back in the kennel to...

    While this is not exactly what you want, one option would be to network him to your connections. If someone you know buys him, you can follow his career more closely and might be in a better position...

    Since you're going to have to promote your fundraising campaign anyway, I'd skip the whole crowdfunding website and focus on making people aware of the group's existing website donation pages.

    I think you usually see the opposite as selling because the horse is too much for the rider in some way (forwardness, requiring a certain level of confidence, gaits too big, etc).

    I agree with...

    Toeing out can predispose a horse for sidebone, which can cause them to lose some elasticity in their hoof.

    However, many horses with sidebone are perfectly sound and happy in work, including...

    If they really, really want to return it to get their money back/not have to deal with selling it themselves, they will file a dispute and tell PayPal the measurements were wrong, the tree was...

    The insurance thing is definitely an issue.

    But research helicopter parenting. Overprotection (not just in physical activities) is a thing. And the kids are not better off for it.

    Facebook. I list in a mix of general tack sites, local tack sites, and discipline-specific sites.

    I only accept PayPal.

    And I do allow trials because, frankly, if a buyer REALLY wants to return...

    On the flip side of things, fellow boarders and I have been trading off who can find whose fly masks in the 5 acre field.

    None of us can find our OWN, but we always come in with one or two...

    My enthusiasm for the Olympics in general, and equestrian sports in the Olympics in particular, is nose diving.

    Couple that with the security, infrastructure and disease issues in Rio... no, I...

    Seizure treatments for cats

    Are there any injectable (subq or IM, not IV) seizure meds for cats?

    And if a cat goes on Phenobarb, how often is bloodwork typically done to check liver function?

    I have a vet appointment...

    Or they are people who would happily have bought the horse, but the OWNER insisted on a free lease arrangement because that is what the OWNER wanted.

    Which, in my personal experience (not vast, I...

    For some owners, it means the horse is off the feed bill. Even if it's temporary, that can be a huge help.

    For others, the horse may not need to be retired but may not exactly suit what they want...

    My horse is equally adept at getting both types off, but he'll tolerate the ones with ears in spring and fall. He refuses to wear them in summer, but he'll leave the ones without ears on in summer....
