    That's assuming I know what I'm looking at! :)

    If you have to pay a lot for board and then pay a trainer to get the horse to be solid under saddle, then I think it is a pay-as-you-go plan.

    I would not go to the dog park. How old is this puppy? If you do puppy classes, I would chose those where the pups are kept on leash and not the "fun puppy free-for-all-playtime" type. I think...

    I wouldn't buy him until he'd been back in full work (5 days a week) for at least three months. 3 months at a very minimum, because I assume the first month or so would be building base-line...

    I know you were asking about the crushed shell, but I wanted to mention that I have seen some pretty strong wear on hooves from crushed quartzite. It's great because it is angular

    Why would a toddler come into her fenced yard?

    I don't think any dogs should be left unattended with toddlers period. Even the dogs who love kids. It's cruel to the dogs. Toddlers are little...
