    I think it also depends upon the size of the arena. If it is big enough to put a dressage arena with square corners within, that would be the best! But if it is a smallish arena and you do dressage...

    Something similar happened to my friend. Her newly adopted dog got lose and ended up in a wooded area behind a shopping mall. We could catch a glimpse, but she wouldn't come near. I walked my...

    So for your birthday you are going to Spain to hang out with a group of drunk guys and then jump in front of irritated cattle?

    Fail to see the point.

    I wish they had put a drum beat at the end! It just seemed to stop... I found the music okay. Not a close relationship with music but nice impression overall. And that horse makes everything look...

    My horse's colic was sudden, but I wish it had been more so. He was on night turnout and the BO found him in the morning laying down and looking bruised and battered. She thought he had broken a...

    Yes, thanks. I was just thinking that usually this kind of situation would have been solved very quickly with the dog returned. This "rescue" seemed to have some sort of agenda from what we know.

    It is so hard! I was thinking he was doing okay for an old dog until you talked about the seizures. If those are not under control, then I think the quality of life is not what I would want. So...

    If the dog hadn't been placed with a new family, I am surprised that the group wouldn't give the dog back, even if they charged a fee.

    I will say that it gets more difficult when dogs have been...

    Animal Control cant do much yet. The dogs were not loose, did not attack. Certainly a high potential for that though! If you can speak with AC they might be willing to speak with her but maybe...

    Yep, that is what we are thinking. What meds are you using? She is currently on gabapentin. Tough thing is it looks like she needs it every 8 hours.

    I boarded once at a bank barn. My horse was smaller and got a downstairs stall. I think there were two stalls under and four stalls above. I recall the old, thick floorboards in the upper aisle,...

    How about J&J's Amaze Me ? (Tho the tradition I am aware of is that kennel name in front means you bred it, at the end means you bought it. But its not a rule!)

    First, do you like the kennel name? If so, you can ask if you can use it. Many smaller breeders don't register, so you can just put it in the name section. Otherwise you need her to fill in the...

    You can use her call name as a registered name if you like it! You could also add to it, like "Miss Maisey M_______" or whatever.

    Just killing time waiting for the vet to open.
    My 6 yo NM Cavalier came up very lame yesterday evening. He was fine in the morning. I went out for a few hours, leaving him and his sister (she...

    For the first rider, I think I would say that the pony is older and simply not up to carrying her. So pretty honest, but with the face-saving "older pony" wrinkle.
