    I get this phone call so often....

    Patient: I'd like to make an appointment.
    Me: Okay, is there a day or a time that works best for you?

    There are a LOT, but so far that's the only surprise.


    How does it not make sense? The wolf tried to be conniving in order to do harm (eat the sheep), and his attempt backfired on him (shepherd...
  3. "Wolf in sheep's clothing" not what you think!

    I've been reading Aesop's fables1 and was very surprised to read the fable of The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing. Never having actually read the fable, I always though the moral of the story was "beware...

    I try to get plenty of sleep so I'm not over-stressing my body. If I have a sore throat, I'll use cough drops. Otherwise nothing. There's nothing you can do about a cold (which is viral) except...

    I knew a horse who developed that. It was a copper deficiency, as TheJenners suggested. Try supplementing with something that has copper.

    The hoof trimming is the least of his concerns. I agree with the others that it may be time to think about letting him go. But unless his feet are really bad or grow really fast, I wouldn't worry...

    Okay, this may make me a terrible person, but that table cracked me up. 0-4 is a full line or two detailing the condition of the person. 5 is just "Dead". Not even the more official sounding...

    Reading it through, I can only assume this is an early April Fools' prank.

    Reminds me of the beginning of Mean Girls, the group of little boys from a weirdly religious family--"And on the third...

    They don't do placebos in this sort of case. It's new treatment protocol vs current treatment protocol. It would be highly unethical to deny treatment to a seriously ill person.

    No suggestions for trainers, just wanted to say I'll be seeing you in Buffalo on 3/26!

    You're welcome to come ride my horse, though! (About 30 minutes from Buffalo.)

    White and gold. I don't see blue and black at all.

    Agreed, it's not that I really care about the color of the dress, I'm intrigued by how differently people perceive the colors.

    Don't buy the Walmart cheapie. It's a waste of money.

    I just bought a Canon 60D before Christmas to replace my 40D that died.

    When a horse is that badly injured, cutting the horse's throat so it bleeds out is preferable to waiting for a vet.
