    Add tortellini to a chicken soup to make a really filling meal. :)

    If you aren't looking for a specific breed, but more of a good horse who has fallen on hard times, then by all means I would recommend checking out horses at rescues. I would also strongly advise a...

    I start mine bitless, but I do introduce them to a bit so they become acclimated as well. By that, I mean that I use a headstall and a rubber snaffle and teach them to accept it, and wear the...

    Superglue and model paint worked well for me. I have my collection still, some 50 odd models. I considered selling them during a tight patch back in the early '80's, but managed to hold onto them....

    Look for a job that suits you better. They are out there. Don't let your skills or your license lapse; you will regret it.

    One of the things it seems has been forgotten more and more of late is this:

    It takes a while for ANY new horse and ANY new owner to figure each other out. Even the best of the best. Each horse...

    Oh boy...
    There are so many red flags here it isn't funny.

    Bad deal, all the way around.
    What did your mom have to say when you agreed to do this? I am amazed she let you do it.

    Now you are...

    So....I was just wondering. What happens to HIPPA in a case like this? Why is this man's name, details, medical history front page news?
    I am guessing the details came from sources outside the...

    Bluey, have you been in a slaughter plant? I have, unfortunately. Part of my job. The plant I've been in (a modern one set up along the Temple Grandin guidelines) has animals coming in one end where...

    I have cut out pretty much all white sugar from my diet. No soda, none in my coffee, and minimal amounts when I bake. Once your taste adjusts, it's fine.

    Years ago I was told, "The horses are easy; It's the people that are hard."

    It was probably covered someplace in the comments, (and I didn't read all of them) but one thing that jumped out early...

    I've gotten one or two. My favorite was one from some immature drama llama who took offense to my disagreeing with her anti-racing post (that she posted in the forum devoted to it, lol) who sent a...

    This guy makes me ill. Let's ruin them in two days so someone else can spend the next twenty years trying to undo it.
    On a side note: anyone else notice how lousy that poor horse's knees are? Yikes!

    A 17H horse will be tight. You will have to give her both stalls. Slants are shorter than straights. Also they usually are 7' high instead of the 7'6" a lot of straightloads are.

    Are you able to give them a shelter that can protect them from predators? And be ok with poop all over the place?
    Don't get me wrong, I like chickens. I've had them before. They're cool birds, but...

    Leave,leave,leave,leave.

    In case I wasn't clear: leave the job. Now.

    There isn't a job in the world worth it. And yes, you will get over it. And once you do, you'll have moments where you stop...

    Don't get too far ahead of yourself. To be concerned is natural. To project entire scenarios will only make it harder for you to react/act to whatever does happen. You raised her; give her some...

    The shedrow barns I've been in were enclosed. You could gallop around the perimeter if desired. In the wider barn, it was 15' wide outside the stalls, some 20' deep at the ends. Once you were inside,...

    Doesn't have the structure. Box trucks are built way different from horse trailers. Hire someone instead.

    The thought of anyone in with my horses, hacking off their hair and spray painting them is just unreal. I also wonder why? Was this random?
    Who spray paints an animal?

    Horse vandalized in upstate NY

    Saw this on Facebook tonight, and honestly don't know what to think.
    (There is some swearing in the status update, so might want to not have the young ones looking at it)
