    Ugh. These young horses look like lifeless puppets. Deadpan expression, only moving when someone pulls the string.

    Be careful about assuming that your trainer's farrier will shoe your horse at the same price he offers your trainer. Your assumption might be wrong.

    My farrier, and every one I've had in the past,...

    One way to catch a trespassing dog (or other critter) is with a snare. I have a friend that uses them to catch strays. He uses a snare with a 'stop', which limits how tight the snare can get... even...

    I don't know that I'd look for a breed, so much as a breed type.

    I'd look at anything foundation bred and stay away from anything show or performance bred.

    OP, if you don't have good dental insurance, and have lost/are losing quite a few teeth, getting the teeth pulled and going with dentures is probably going to be the most affordable option. Dental...

    Actually, the woman in this case formerly served in the Navy as an MP (Military Police).

    Also, the accident happened on New Year's, which makes one wonder if alcohol played a role.
