    Revive Coat Conditioner - it's a cattle product, so not quite a "household" item, but I love it and it smells great (coconut oil). I also buy bags of lifesaver mints at Costco - a favorite for all...

    I normally use navy on my black horse (so much easier to see when it's time to take them out!) and I also keep hunter green and a deep purple on hand. I've used the purple on my chestnut, haven't...

    My cousin grew up in Hawaii and eventually moved to California. Two years ago, in the middle of Chicago's Snowmaggedon, she decided to join the rest of the family here in northern Illinois. I have...

    I've always gone for black on my black gelding. I think it looks very sharp.

    I especially love it when I answer the phone at work ("Good morning/afternoon, company name, how may I help you?") and, after the caller gives the reason for their call, without providing a name, I...

    "Cute as a button" just doesn't do him justice. He's LOVELY! And your daughter is adorable. What a fantastic mom you are!

    If you're a fanatic about picking up every little piece of poop, they're fantastic! I had the small sized one and it would take forever to clean an entire stall because you can only pick up so much...

    Belmont - I'm glad you liked everything! It seemed like such a mish-mosh of stuff but I tried to include everyone and use most of the things you said you liked. I think the necklace is a magnet, so...

    Had my right foot done in 2001 - have two pins in my big toe, had a knot removed from my second toe and have a pin in my little toe. Was no big deal. Was on crutches, non-weight-bearing for a few...

    Are you on facebook? If so, check out the Corgi Nation group. Lots of contacts there that could probably point you in the right direction.

    They've become the Chicago Cubs of the NFL. Thank God I'm a Blackhawks fan (although we had to suffer through some terrible, terrible years before we got to the good stuff....).

    Thanks Blume Farm! I'll ask about the gabapentin and laser therapy also - that's something that wasn't brought up before. But overall it sounds like we're on the right track for doing what we can...

    More his symptoms and the progression and just ruling out other things, since the DM can't be diagnosed 100% unless a necropsy is done. He's been on Previcox for the past couple of years due to...

    Degenerative Myelopathy

    Anyone dealt with DM? My ACD was recently diagnosed with DM, or at least something similar (the gene hasn't been found in his breed but if it's not DM it's close enough). He'll be 14 in January and...

    I bought a new laptop last year and it came with Windows 8, which I curse every time I use it. If my computer had a touchscreen, I don't think I'd hate it quite so much, so if you can afford it with...

    It drives me batty. I understand the thought process (such as it is) of wanting to show that the horse is broke and quiet, but I secretly wish that the horse would spook and something and take off,...
