    It would be great if it were.

    I've read enough gov't rules creatively when it suited me (or my customer). I don't delude myself that I'm different than any other bureaucrat.

    Puppies, like horses, are worth what someone will pay.

    If the OP, or someone else, wants to pay $500 for a puppy, be it off Craigslist, a breeder, or a rescue, so be it.

    Who am I, or vfx111,...

    Just because a mare hasn't had a colt, doesn't mean she hasn't canoed. Some just don't catch.

    In VA, AI is expensive; in IN, OH, & PA, not so much.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Some of the changes are legit, however once again, USDA has decided that all pads are evil.

    Most saddle horse trainers work their horses in a similar manner. Bitting rig, a round pen or an indoor arena, and whip; most established show horses will do their thing without a rider at the crack...

    I would call the EMT's supervisor. There are some jackass, over zealous EMTs out there. She likely won't get anything monetary out of it, but at least get it off her chest.

    My trainer did that with one of his mares - told the lesson kid working in the barn to make sure they were all heads up or it wouldn't work. :lol:

    I know exactly the look you mean. I've spent 8 weeks NWB. I scavenged, or rather sent someone to scavenge, some leg cotton from my horse stuff and padded my boot to fit.

    You can get a surcingle fairly inexpensively. I think Dover had one for around $30. I've always used a crupper when I long lined.

    Saddle horse people often start colts in long lines and use them...

    I can sympathize with the boot issue. Dumb question for your doc - would a larger size or different model accommodate the swelling better? Sometimes the obvious solution isn't very obvious.

    Honestly, how close is the old dog to checking out? If the writing is clearly on the wall, go for the puppy.

    I got a kitten after one old cat died in large part because I didn't think the other...

    After having boarded with Amish, I hate the English horse world.

    Your rate schedule is way too complicated for me. I can see a higher price for feed/turnout vice just feed, but 3 different prices for one day is too far into the weeds.

    I noticed the difference even with the 'bad' Siamese from years ago - local bred appleheads. Just different cats. The first one we had, my sister & I dressed up like a doll for years. We took him...

    My newest Siamese Retriever is 6 months old on Monday. Last thing I'd call them is an Arab.

    They are dogs in cat bodies. Every one has been talkative. One was honestly dumb as a post. Sweet...
