    I can understand the anger (which is really frustration). See it all the time around here. It's typically people who own some land and "love raising babies", except after creating them, they never...

    Ours is zip tied along our wire fence, at knee height. Makes installation, routine inspection, and repair a breeze. The only place we buried ours is where it runs through a piece of thick wall pvc...

    Been using this combo for about 15 years. I have 4 acres of mesh livestock fence plus an invisible fence. I have drivey hunting dogs and it works GREAT. This combo can't be beat for areas larger than...

    I just leave the water hose draped into the trough, can be used to climb out by squirrels, lizards, or what have you.

    Not news to anyone who speaks dog. They don't like pats on the head, either.

    One of the first things you learn in dog training is to make sure that the "reward" you're giving isn't negatively...

    OP, I went through a bit of this after my 'perfect' dog died and I got a half sister in an effort to replace her with another just like her. Puppy...

    Timely thread. I also have a hyperactive 2 year old that has grade 2 patella luxation, but on one side only. I have seen the leg pop out 3 times, and sometimes you can tell her gait isn't entirely...

    I've had a number of horses that were very consistent and completely free of vices, but not beginner safe.

    The reason? They are highly responsive, just as a well trained horse should be. A strong...

    The fact that parents can afford something doesn't mean the child is entitled to get it. "I want it" isn't a justification to be given something.

    This comes from someone who cried every birthday...

    Agreed. These horses are beautiful, but the handling is atrocious.

    This is my thought as well. Just tell her that you're making her time slot available to someone else due to the 7 cancellations, and invite her to contact you as soon as kid is able to ride regularly...

    You want to ride a hunter, but the horse you own doesn't want to BE a hunter. Why isn't he for sale? What am I missing?

    OP, I'd have done exactly what you did. I think most of us would have.

    Exactly. As I mentioned in my earlier post, a GOOD spay/neuter marketing campaign might make some inroads, if it appeals to basic human nature at the lowest common denominator.

    Actually, she's not proposing educating pet owners. She's proposing forcing every dog and cat owner to spay/neuter unless they submit to licensing, home inspections, and can prove a good enough...

    Yes, thank you for sharing. The part about the pit ponies reminded me of a movie (was it Disney?) I saw many years ago about them.

    For spay/neuter campaigns to be successful, people with a good understanding of human nature should organize and promote them. (Instead of animal rights folks).

    E-collars are BY FAR the most effective means of "de-crittering" a high drive dog. We use them to teach our hunting dogs not to chase deer or other non-target game that jump up in front of them and...

    Fine, but if that's the minimum standard of care, it must be universally enforced.

    A 3-strand braided lead is very strong, yet small and light enough to wad up and stuff in your jeans pocket. I like to put a small...
