    My Arab would absolutely consider following someone out of the people door... He'd shrug and be all "You lead, I follow!"

    Probably depends on the brand. I groom dogs for a living and really the Oster, Andis and Wahl (and whatever other 'name brand' blades are worth the additional cost. They generally are made from...

    There's a 21 day sugar detox diet. (Nothing you need to buy, just google it.) Its pretty rough if you follow it strictly for the first few days, but I felt a lot better after the first week.

    I would just get a huge load of sand and dump it in a mound. Every horse I've ever met, enjoys this. They usually make a bed of sorts out of it and enjoy rolling, sleeping and playing in it.

    If my daughter decides she wants to differ from what the rest of the family eats, that's fine, but I would expect she eats a healthy, balanced diet. None of the cheating either (I can understand...
