    Maybe for horses, and perhaps dogs, but that's a pretty old school thought when it comes to cats. I choose to do titers on my cats due to the high incidence and unpredictable nature of vaccine...

    I have the same saddle as you and LOVE it! It's such a well balanced saddle, and this is coming from someone whose other saddle is a County. You're certainly fine in one, I don't show hunters, but...

    Something like PHR papers can be very valuable to a future buyer, for more than just pedigree verification. Like others have stated, a known breed. For myself as a buyer, they mean a known age. ...

    Yes, babies can come out of nowhere and surprise you (in both good and bad ways). I had a 4 year old, who I'd started and put loads of rides on, who'd never offered so much as a crow hop in over a...

    I had this same experience. I've had it a few times, and the symptoms have been drawn out (up to 6+ months) when I've continued to push myself. It's not worth it in the long run, I put myself in...

    I've had the electric toothbrush work well. But I wouldn't be in too big of a hurry with a horse that age, he's got a lot of maturing to do.

    Another way I approach it with clipper shy horses is...

    I have two pairs and love them! Compared to the ribbed breeches, I find they are a bit less stretchy, and run slightly smaller in size. They are fairly long, but the sock bottom is very...

    While the horses are just now receiving support, don't think those previous threads on CoTH did nothing, even when the dissenter was attacked. I've been reading for years, especially looking at...

    It seems to be very dependent on the type of knee problem. My ligaments do not adequately hold my patella in place, causing pain after standing, riding, sitting in chair position, ect, and I've...

    The noseband has never made much of a difference for me, but I grew up in pony-club where we were taught to leave it loose. I actually start all of my youngsters in a bridle that is basically just a...

    We've had $1000 dogs come into our rescue after they were abandoned. It's not really that uncommon. They are often scanned for a microchip, which is still listed to their breeder, and then returned...

    This is how I use it. Once a horse can walk around without a backup person on the ground holding him, I'd say he's been lightly started, but before that, if I'm just hanging out up there, he's been...

    It takes a lot of core strength to NOT make a move over a large fence. I have my riders who tend to make large moves and jump for the horse work on core strength both on and off the horse, and it...

    Does he show under a different name? It looks like he's only been to one rated show, in 2009, but the database doesn't account for a horse shown under multiple names. But the one showing in 2009 is...

    They don't have a phone number listed because they don't have one: it keeps costs down. I've found their shipping estimates to be very accurate, and I've had good luck getting them by email.
