    Agreed that it's no big deal. I work at a barn; we soak feed for anyone who needs it soaked. There is no extra charge. We put the feed in and add water, then turn the horses in. By the time we...

    I'd have a full-time job as a journalist in my sport with a major outlet, traveling 30 weeks a year and writing about the sport.

    Though after almost 4 years of unemployment, a full-time job with...

    Many senior feeds are complete feeds, meaning they can make up the entire diet. Not sure about the Purina, but if it is, it should have recommended amounts to feed as a complete feed, and you can...

    Recall is probably the toughest to train...BUT, the primary problem with the dog in the OP was not recall, but leash manners. Hitting the end of the leash, ever, is a training problem. A properly...

    I agree with switching him to just the Pro Force Fiber. I've had great luck with it for maintaining weight. My horse was on the TC Complete for a while and it made him NUTS. Changed him to Tribute...

    Yes; separating them at mealtimes and no food in between is the way to go. I have three: one eats in the kitchen, one in the bathroom, one in the bedroom. They know mealtime and go to their...

    Mine sits on me, and if that doesn't work she sticks her tongue in my ear. Gross and effective.

    What's the cat's diet? Switching to a canned-ONLY diet is a huge key to handling these issues. I have one who had chronic UTI's and a full blockage. He was on a prescription wet food for a while...

    Is the trailer well-bedded with shavings? For many horses, a little slip on the mat while loading can be all it takes for them to decide they don't really want to step up there after all.

    I love the smell of coffee but don't like the taste unless it has enough sugar and milk in it to pretty much negate the coffee.

    The small I can't stand? Hard-boiled eggs. I don't really like eggs...

    Night blindness and ERU are two totally different conditions, though both are common in Appaloosas. Night blindness is genetic and seemingly tied to the leopard complex. Appaloosas are something...

    The storylines can be a bit of a stretch and it can be a little cheesy, but I love The Big Valley. I have them on DVD and indulge in a little binge once in a while...

    My thoughts exactly. Though if someone's dogs attacked my horse and I found them loose and heading for my horse again, I wouldn't wait for them to attack him again. But I wouldn't be bragging about...

    Peanut butter, lettuce, and mayo sandwiches, with or without bacon.

    Fluffernutter with a sliced banana thrown on for good measure

    Mayo and ketchup, equal parts and mixed thoroughly, is the...

    OK, my brain must be somewhere else entirely. Took me a couple minutes of wondering why anyone would steal boards from a barn (not to mention how that would go unnoticed) to figure out what OP was...

    Something to think about (coming from someone who just made the same decision and let my old boy go): Horses live in the "right now." They don't think about, "well, it might feel better in a few...

    We use bagged shavings, which are very absorbent, on top of permeable mats, so most of the wet drains away. We pick up any wet shavings with a pitchfork and use dry shavings to catch any leftover...

    I get sore hips on occasion; chiro does help. Also, I've found that sleeping with a relatively thin but firm pillow between my knees helps immensely--think just thick enough to keep the hips aligned...

    I definitely agree about it not being as good without Grissom. I also especially liked Warrick, so I was NOT happy they killed him off! I do like Ted Danson MUCH better than Lawrence Fushburn. I...

    I spent 10 days in the Presidentials in February when I was in high school. We were prepared and with a group and it was still pretty grueling. I can't imagine wanting to do it alone, even on a day...

    Any other CSI fans out there?

    I've enjoyed the show from the start, though I admit I haven't been as into the last few seasons. I did think the season finale was good (though from what I understand, CBS has not renewed for a...

    He is gone. It was horribly heartbreaking for me, but it was right. It was time. He did so much for me and for countless others; it was only fair to do right by him when he needed it. As far as...
