    mL is liquid. To convert, you need to know strength of whatever liquid you're looking at. There's no straight conversion you can use here, unless there is only one liquid strength? What is the...

    I personally would not be comfortable getting it wet hours before feeding. It's stable in the pill form--my guess would be that it's not terribly stable once it's wet.

    Another vote for nope. Never. You want to feed something special, it's on you, and whatever "savings" the barn has by not feeding the house grain is payment for the hassle of feeding something...

    Man, it was so long ago. We probably did IRAP 2-3 months after surgery. We gave her some time, and then we did IA HA, and then we did IRAP.

    I used it again with Dove two years ago. She came off...

    You're looking north of town, then? Where are you going to be living? Very little horse stuff in Denver proper.

    Backwards, angled with his head to the right. I couldn't haul that horse tied at all--he would kick nonstop. Perfectly happy to just stand hauled loose.

    Oh, my. He's by FORESTRY. One of the most lovely horses I've ever seen is LaurieB's Forestry filly Timeless Forest. (I think it was LaurieB??) Man, I just loved her. Just looked--she's 12 now. ...

    Verdict is: hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Left ventricle was pretty much toast. Poor Aloe :( At least it was fast, and there was nothing we could have done.

    Not a gunshot. No blood on her. I heard her fall into the food bowl, I think, either from the top of the box they have in there as a hidey hole or perhaps just from standing? I don't know.

    Sony NEX. Amazing little camera! While I love it, I am not a pro photag, but I have a good friend who is, and he prefers it to his DSLRs. Absolutely worth a look.
