    She actually did consider a cat, but unfortunately it would have to live in her office full time -- she has a cat at home already, who's getting old and has health issues, and who would not be able...
  2. Small animals for therapy? (was: Any bunny experts here?)

    I know they're a popular classroom pet -- thoughts on a bunny as a therapy animal for children? My mom was trying to train her dogs as therapy dogs to use in her practice, but neither one has an...

    It also depends on how much time/effort you are willing to spend in correcting the behavior.

    I got my horse from a rescue and was only allowed to ride him in a round pen due to their very...

    Here's a recap of the endurance portion. I had trouble getting the audio loud enough to hear, but that may have just been my computer.

    Sure, why not? As long as the route is safe and your horse is used to traffic. If you have a smartphone, you can download a GPS app to see how fast your horse walks and trots, to calculate how long...

    This is the analogy that I use (also works well for teaching people to drive in the snow). One time, I left a crop on the wheel well by mistake -- it was still there when I got home, 10 miles over...

    The bank is a bit steep, but there are no step-down spots. Just a steep hill down and up.

    You can, and it's so much fun! Sorry I couldn't give you better directions to find the little trail -- it's not marked on the map, and I've only done it a couple of times. It's somewhere in the...

    VFP is an awesome place to ride, and it's easy to spend hours there without hitting...

    It really depends on what time you're on 476 -- if you have to be on it during rush hour, be prepared to sit. If you have any flexibility to shift your schedule slightly earlier or later, it'll be a...

    Where on the main line do you live? And what kind of place are you looking for? Plenty of places to board in Radnor Hunt, but $$$$$$ :)

    Along those stretches of 476/95, you're not going to be able...

    The finished half of our basement was carpeted when we bought the house. The previous owners said that it had never flooded, and the inspector said there was no sign of flood damage. We had a...

    The PeeWee bit is what my low-palate horse likes, too. He came to me as a rescue with horrible teeth, and he had been ridden in a single-jointed full cheek snaffle, and a standing martingale so that...

    It's possible that Renegades may work, depending on where he hits himself. If it's down low, you can get the cutback option to make sure that there is no part of the boot base that is sticking out...

    I have a male cat who had to have surgery for a bladder stone, caused by dehydration. I used to feed him both dry and wet food, because he liked the dry food so much. At the vet's advice, I switched...

    Bolero is the perfect piece of music for a flash mob :)

    Since it's that close to the ground, AluSpray might work better than Wonder Dust. It's basically a liquid bandage that you spray on, and it forms a water-resistant, breathable seal to let it heal...

    Dear Mr. I'm Going to Straddle Both Lanes in the Merge So No One Can Get Past: The merge lane is there for a reason. I'm supposed to go all the way up to the end, matching my speed with the existing...

    I've been using the Vipers for about 2 years now (was one of the testers), and they're great. But like all hoof boots, they fit some hoof shapes better than others. Your best bet would be to take a...

    I've worked with two bolters, whose issues started out the same, but ended up with very different solutions.

    The first was a TB/Welsh pony, stocky and strong, but with TB speed and a very...

    From what I heard, the course conditions were extremely challenging due to the amount of rain they had been getting. That's an awfully long way to go in deep mud, especially if a lot of the horses...

    Time begins at the same time for everyone. Over the course of that many miles, it's often easy to make up those few minutes should you choose to start just a little bit late, either on the course or...

    FEI endurance around the world, and especially in the Middle East, is very different from most endurance rides in the US, which are sanctioned by AERC (American Endurance Ride Conference) -- although...

    Are you planning on giving Adequan once a month or following the manufacturer's recommended instructions? If the latter, no loading dose is necessary -- their instructions are to give the 7 doses...
