    I was back riding four weeks after my total knee - riding lightly, and on my smaller, not very big moving horse. My husband built me a VERY tall mount block, and I appreciate it even more for...

    Who had ad hominem attacks on dissenters by page 6? Would you like to roll it over into an accumulator bet? A little power ball bonus the first time language gets mentioned?

    You should absolutely get chickens. They are delightful and a lot of fun, plus, once you have your own eggs you will never ever eat a store bought egg again.

    If it's illegal to discharge a firearm, a captive bolt gun would be the obvious solution. That is what I believe Cat Tap is referring to.

    That is my experience as well. I can't imagine a vet having a problem with the decision to euth this horse, or refusing to do it.

    Sorry, BTDT,

    This is not a language problem, this is a smugness problem.

    The OP compared giving supplements or injections preventatively to giving "candy" or treats.
