    Some of you may remember my thread on this forum 4 years ago about the adult Pembroke Welsh corgi that i was going to adopt. We got him, and love him to bits. As others have said, extremely smart and...

    Thank you for all the suggestions. I do have a cheap fleece-lined girth that I usually keep on hand as a back-up but I haven't used it in a while. I will dig it up and see if it helps!
  3. Padded cc girth suggestions for a sensitive chestnut mare

    I am shopping for a new girth. The mare is girthy, more so during the winter, even though I am always careful to do the girth up one hole at a time, alternating sides and walking in between. I also...

    GoForAGallop - thank you, SStack has several liners I am now lusting for! I will email to see if they can ship to me for a reasonable cost.

  8. COTH shoppers - where can I get a stable blanket with 150-200g fill, closed front?

    I would really like to get another stable blanket for Miss Mare to wear overnight this winter. She is stabled at night and goes out during the day, the staff throws on a rainsheet, midweight or...

    I keep a spray bottle of Miracle Groom in my grooming box, a light spritz on the coat and on the brushes before grooming helps keep the static down, although you may have to reapply frequently. Even...

    I have a very spooky mare who is prone to big sideway spooks, sudden stops and snort :eek:, and the occasional sudden let's-get-outta-here-real-quick-and-maybe-throw-in-a-few-kicks/bucks-just-in-case...

    Pembroke. I think the Cardigans are stunning, and I would definitely not kick one off the couch ;), but they are even more rare than the Pembrokes around here.

    As I said above, it has been my experience that the small horse size is now smaller than it used to be, so it may work for you. Will the tack shop let you exchange it if it doesn't fit?

    Thank you for the further replies. Your input has helped reassure hubby and I that this could work with the right dog(s).

    I followed up with the rescue about the corgi I mentioned earlier, and it...

    I agree they have changed the sizing. The small horse size used to fit my horse beautifully, it is now slightly too small (sits too close to her eyes even though I can velcro it closed). The regular...

    Funny you should mention that, I have been lusting after a Corgi for years!

    That is a good point. I am guessing a careful introduction and a trial period for the second dog would be necessary?

    Thank you for all the replies. I would definitely go for adult/older, I have a soft spot for oldies. :yes:

    Thank you for the replies. I agree two dogs is a potential solution, I had actually thought about it. I can just picture myself selling it to hubby: "But honey, that's why we need two!" :D
  21. Is it OK for dog to be alone all day while we are at work?

    I need some perspective on this. I would really like to get a dog. We are a household of two adults, hubby and I both grew up with dogs and love them. We own our (detached) house with a fenced...

    My mare is a 15.1 Tb/appy (fine boned and shaped like a tb), and takes a cob size Micklem. The issue with her is that her mouth is short, so the noseband sits a little lower than is ideal even with...

    Thank you for all the replies. As an update, the abrasion was almost healed when I went to the barn two days ago, so I did use the AluSpray on it.

    Thank you Toadie's mom! I realized yesterday that I could also lenghten the bit straps (duh!) if I want to make the noseband sit a little higher. I may still try the cob size to see if it gives me a...
