    Does your insurance require you to have a referral to see a specialist? If not, can you find another surgeon or other kind of specialist who will see you (some specialists will only see you when you...
  2. I am not saying the OP has a "rotator cuff"...

    I am not saying the OP has a "rotator cuff" problem but for those of you who find out you do and need surgery, do make sure you find a good surgeon. Go see two or three and talk to them about any...
  3. It is your choice whether or not you have the...

    It is your choice whether or not you have the surgery. If, after talking to a plastic surgeon, you're not convinced you want surgery, don't have it. But don't hesitate to consult with more than one...

    Is there any difference in a van as far as stability (being top heavy or otherwise having different dimensions than a truck or SUV)? I've never driven a van but some (like the Sprinter) look so tall...

    That's a bizarre test. As has been pointed out, what farm or ranch dog works on a leash? It sounds like a test for a suburban dog who is visiting a farm and can prove he will behave. It sounds like...
  6. I'd be moving. You're not getting anything...

    I'd be moving. You're not getting anything (well, very little) for the money you're paying. You shouldn't have to check on your horse every day, let alone multiple times per day. No place is...

    When I had 12 horses on the property I had a 2-hour window in the morning and in the evening during which they were fed. They were in overnight and out during the day. Nobody was ever pacing,...

    Have you talked to your county's wildlife officers? If your farm is in suburbia the coyotes pose a threat to more than just the people and animals on your farm.

    i live in a rural area and the...

    I used to volunteer and I needed to sit a lot. I made sure to bring my own comfy folding chair. I always made it clear to the Volunteer Director that I couldn't stand for a long time, lift, run,...

    Lots of good points have already been brought up. How much land are you thinking of buying? There's a difference between taking care of a 5-acre farmette vs. 50 acres. More fencing to maintain,...
  11. I've never liked little dogs. The smallest dog...

    I've never liked little dogs. The smallest dog I've owned is a 35-pound one; the largest is 80 pounds. I like big dogs. Really like them a lot. Small dogs make me nervous - I'm afraid I'll step on...
  12. Can't Get the D*mn Bute Out of the Tube

    Over the last few years, I've been able to get only one brand of Bute from the two vets who have treated my horse (and of course I'm drawing a blank on the brand but it's not one of the brands I've...
  13. You have to think about whether you want to have...

    You have to think about whether you want to have a keypad with a code required to enter and exit the property. If it's possible to exit without a code (there's just a button to push to open the gate...

    I'm sorry to hear you need such serious surgery. Have you gotten a second opinion?

    I have been seeing a physical therapist for the last few months for lower back problems and some other problems that I've had forever. This guy is really good, and as he works on me we keep...

    This is really a hot topic for me. I fly a lot and have flown with quite a few real service dogs who I did not know were even on the plane until we landed and were exiting the plane. The real...

    Essie, I'm coming to this discussion late but thank you for sharing information about your mare. I am so sorry for your loss - it's heartbreaking to hear about it. I can only imagine how you are...

    I'll echo what everybody else has said. If you're being paid to haul horses your auto insurance doesn't cover you (or your boyfriend's insurance doesn't cover him) if there's an accident. And it...

    I have an old F250 I plow with and I use it to haul feed, shavings, etc. I have never towed with it. I wouldn't want to tow with the plow blade on it. I have no scientific proof of this, but I'm...

    It's a difference between the dog flying as baggage (like your suitcase - you check in the dog at the baggage counter in your departing airport and pick him up at the oversize baggage claim) vs him...

    Playing for Keeps

    The damn's name (Layla) makes me think of Eric Clapton.

    Have you tried probiotics? I use the Purina Fortiflora and it has firmed things up considerably.

    I used rawhide years ago before it was politically incorrect. One of my dogs was an enthusiastic chewer and practically inhaled it and pretty frequently the rawhide would come up again or I'd hear...

    I have a Keeshond, which is a Spitz-type dog, and there is a lot of controversy over clipping. Most of the breeders and long-time owners agree that clipping is not a good thing - that the natural...

    It's going to be hard to find THE BEST. There are lots of good foods and it depends what your animals need. I've had my large breed dog on Fromm's large breed adult for three years and she does...
