    My boarder's mare just went through this exact thing. This boarder's husband is also a vet. Started as a lump, didn't present exactly abcess-like, no pus, so they biopsied it, normal. Left it...

    If you want to keep the light, 3M makes low-e film that will reduce the amount of solar gains. Just apply it to your skylight. You can usually get them through a window dealer. Lots of options!

    We got my 6 year old (who has a tiny oval-shaped head) a Uvex (XS child size). It has a dial tightener, so we could get a snug fit as well as some growing room. No shims required. The tiniest...

    My local shelter has what they call a "working cat" program, for barn and/or feral kitties. Brilliant!

    Hooray!! I pulled the trigger too, and ended up with a 2015 Silverado 2500 crew cab, long bed, with the turbo diesel. She is a huge, glorious beast :)

    When I last went horse shopping for my 11 year old daughter, I was very upfront about each horse I looked at that we absolutely needed a trial period. Full stop. It was the first question I asked. ...

    If you go with either of those (personally I wouldn't), be sure to get a weight distribution hitch.

    I have the equivalent of that trailer (Merhow version) and I haul with a 3/4 ton suburban. A...

    I'm going to jump on the abscess train as well, since I had one do the same thing. Young TB, no reaction to hoof testers, small abscess finally came out above the heel bulbs. Weird spot.

    I'm not a vet or even close to one, but what jumps into my head is wobbler syndrome. I believe that often manifests in the C6-7 area. Hopefully not -- but a neuro exam should be able to rule it out.

    Or.... worthless :D

    Nobody wants my lame old retiree, who I consider a pet. He's not even particular friendly. But, either are pet fish, I suppose. He gets pet status because I've committed to...

    This is a very interesting question.

    I have a 24 yo retiree that is very much a pet. He is no longer rideable and has zero useful function other than looking pretty in the pasture, but he'll...

    I'm researching (shopping) as well, so I'm interested to hear responses!

    I'm upgrading from a 3/4 ton Suburban. Mine is the ginormous 8.1L version (looooove) and has plenty of life left, but...

    Not enough. If you truly want to smooth things over, put on your big girl panties and do a real, direct apology.

    This part you can solve. Hack off a broom handle or bit of 2x4 that will fit in the non sliding part and will block the door from opening. Then keep it in there all. The. Time.

    Well, you need to decide if you want to let go of this incident, or not. Your posts sort of make it sounds like not. But it would be a whole lot better for your new business if you can suck it up...

    I bought mine used from ebay UK. Still way cheaper even when you figure in cost to ship to the states! Look for sellers that will ship internationally or email them directly to find out.

    Radiant heating would not cause condensation. It does not introduce humidity into the air at all. Warm horsey breath on cold exterior walls would though, or lots of people and no fresh air.

    I am spoiled rotten. Mine is about 15 minutes away. I can actually see it from my house.
