    I love your sig line, and I love Kipling. But I always thought it was about Peanut your beagle who vanished. Was Peanut a basset? I'm sorry you never found him.

    "come grow old along with me, the best of life is yet to be, the last of life for which the first was made."

    My favorite maternal aunt used to quote that, and say "The fool who said that died at...

    Not a problem at my farm. The chickens and the kittens are the exact same age - 19 weeks - although the mama cat is of course an adult. The cats go with me in the morning to let the chickens out of...

    You know, that's a really pretty tag. But I don't think I'd like looking at it all the time while I was in the saddle! :lol: It would put bad thoughts in my head. Anybody else feel that way?

    I...

    DH, who exhaustively researches all big purchases, bought this one: the Miele Dog and Cat.

    It really has changed my life. :) I live with four dogs - one of whom is a Great Pyrenees cross! :eek:...

    Really the best solution is to teach the horse to turn and see the dog off, as suggested above. But that takes a little time. The dog gets after OP when she's on foot, too - although she can...

    I'm not sure how neighbor thinks the dog wearing his collar will help? Is it a shock collar, where he can zap him when he goes for someone?

    If not, I would press the neighbor for an explanation...

    *HP. It's for reporting anything - broken down drivers, drunks, or if you need help yourself.

    I've used it once, for an obviously drunk and weaving driver on Hwy 501. In fact, she was doing the...

    I think if you are worried you should call the police and ask if they will check on the dog.

    If you pick the dog up and take it somewhere and either have it destroyed or give it to a no-kill...

    Not at all, Bicoastal. :) If we all had the same opinions these boards would make pretty dull reading.

    I bet the difference of opinion among responders on this thread is due to the difference in...

    We don't know whether or not the dog is injured. I agree it is likely, and if it continues to run loose it almost certainly will be - but. Being impounded and held until destroyed is a godawful...

    Of course you have to do what you think best. But my experience with these kinds of situations is different from the poster above. What may happen is AC or LE picks up dog, owner won't claim it,...

    I applaud your good intentions. But I'm not sure whether animal control would do anything or not. Might want to check with them first. You know, call up with a hypothetical "Hey y'all, suppose I...

    I know how you feel. I ran over my neighbors' dog when it ran out of a bean field and right under my back tire. Sat with the neighbors' kid while the dog bled out through its mouth and died.

    If he's footsore now, and is going to be on a lot of gravel, I'd advise you to have him shod at least in front. I spent too much time waiting for my horse's feet to "toughen up" and now wish I'd...

    No, not nuts. I live on a similar size place, in coastal SC, and DH and I are both over 50. It's like my parents said about having children in their forties - it keeps you young.:yes::)

    And if...

    Well, you can always smack them. But IME, they'll just yell "Ow" and hit you back. :lol:

    When I was in college, I was the second shift desk clerk at a resort at Myrtle Beach. You should've heard...

    People burn off their fields after they get one crop in - which right now is tobacco - before they put the next one out. Kills weeds and pests without using pesticides andherbicides and saves...

    I'm sorry, I don't mean to make you mad, but my advice is the same as enjoytheride's. I think you need to get someone with experience to help you out. A fresh perspective and a new set of eyes can...

    My six year old nephew eats them shells and all. I didn't know you could eat the shells until I saw him do it, but apparently they are edible. :) His peanuts come from the farmer's market, so no...

    I will try the raisins, thanks. :)

    I don't know how much movement we're talking about, but my western saddle moves a little bit under the cantle. Not nearly as much as it moves when I add a bucking strap, though. Those things are...

    I hate to be contrary, but again there are no hard and fast rules. The best instructor I've ever had takes phone calls and texts during my lesson. She pays attention when she needs to, but really,...
