    I just want to say that I'm so sorry you are having to do this much and spend this much to get him to what sounds like isn't even serviceably sound. :( I think it really sucks that the breeders are...

    Thank you - he really was the best little buddy. He was with me through some of the most major events of my life: law school, marriage, a terrible job, a great job, becoming a shareholder in my law...

    My cat that just passed away was afraid of storms his entire life. One thing that helped was to not make a big deal about them. We'd walk around the house, talk to him in a normal tone of voice,...

    Wisconsin is the same. I boarded at a barn that had a Strangles outbreak and lied to its boarders about it. My horse became ill during the outbreak, and they lied to my vet and told her that the...

    I suspect you didn't treat him long enough for the ulcers. Have you had him scoped?

    I'm so sorry...the hurt of losing a cherished pet is so hard. I do think the right dog will find you, probably when you stop looking.

    Could you encourage him to get a puppy now, while the others are still around? If the ages of future dogs are a bit staggered, perhaps the chance of losing more than one around the same time is...

    Thank you, and LOL regarding cats focusing on you. Cats always focus on the people who are the least comfortable with them or who don't like them at all. I always find this exceptionally hilarious....
  9. Thanks - I totally agree. I started crying about...

    Thanks - I totally agree. I started crying about him at work today. He just loved us so much, and we loved him right back. Even when he was incredibly ill and just out of surgery, he tried to get...

    I actually hate this saying with a passion. Hooves are a long way from the heart, but laminitis can be deadly. A broken pastern, also a long way from the heart.

    I would ride in the case the OP describes. It really does depend on the horse, the injury, etc. My horse REALLY needs to be ridden/worked every day unless he has a real lameness or problem. The...

    Hmmm. Any really good jumper trainers in your area? Someone who is actively campaigning a high-level jumper would be a good match for most TBs, in my experience. Or just a trainer in any...
  13. Yeah, definitely don't take your TB to a place...

    Yeah, definitely don't take your TB to a place that hates TBs. They can be quirky and challenging even for people who LOVE the breed. No sense in working with someone who doesn't like them.

    That...

    Thank you - he really was such a good buddy and was with me through many major events in my life. I miss him every day.

    I agree that the attitude you describe is the primary "cat dislike" I...
  15. TOTALLY agree with this.

    TOTALLY agree with this.
  16. Isn't this the trainer that you were super...

    Isn't this the trainer that you were super worried about running into at a schooling show because she has been so nasty to you in the past? Didn't she say something to the effect that she hates it...

    I agree! I mean, I know not everyone adores cats the way I do, but I have not noticed many (any?) truly obvious cat-haters. I've definitely heard people say they don't like cats (including horse...

    I actually saw some nice benefits with Cosequin for cats (they make an actual cat version) for my kitty that had subluxating patellas and related arthritis. Cosequin for cats also has some urinary...

    Ha ha, nope. He's buff/light orange. Earl is black with only a couple white hairs on his chest, armpits, and groin. They are both named after Kurt Vonnegut characters, as are all of our animals. :)

    They are home! I'm exhausted and can't post pics from my phone, but I will try to get some on here tomorrow. They are both so awesome, friendly, and fun. I suspect Larry is a little older than...

    This is what we did to fix my rearer, but I agree that it isn't something that someone who is afraid of the horse should be doing. I don't fault the OP for being afraid. It can be a very scary...

    And in the meantime, NO, do NOT put a martingale on him. To this day, I won't ride my mostly-reformed rearer in a martingale, draw reins, or anything like that at all. He also goes in a very mild...

    Here's the deal: my horse used to rear like this as a younger horse. Massive, massive rears, usually several in a row, and he would do it any time (walking on a loose rein, standing on a loose rein,...

    Uhh, I do NOT hope she can resurrect her career. She does not deserve to be around animals at all, much less get PAID for it! Having just lost my kitty to cancer about two weeks ago, this situation...

    We have spent most of our day buying cat things. It's pretty fun going shopping for cats as an adult with a job. When I got Leon, I was a student with no money. So he missed out on the really fun...
