    I am certain that some of the horses I have seen down there could be saved (though not all--I've had two emaciated horses die on me even with specialized vet-approved feeding plans, so I know...

    Any taxidermy is creepy as hell to me. The idea of preserving the skin in a "lifelike" imitation is just bizarre. I have two horsehair (well, one horse and one mule) bracelets made from deceased...

    I can do the sound but I really hate it. It sounds like pigeons cooing to me and is just obnoxious. :lol:

    A lot of it is just practice. I've spent most of my life in largely Spanish-speaking...

    I said it in the other thread (which had a much less sensational link in the OP--it went directly to the Animal Angels site, rather than to the Daily Mail which is rather tabloid-y) and I will say it...

    For me, it kind of depends on the specific issue. If you're selling an older schoolmaster-type, it isn't uncommon to put something about "needs maintenance" in the ad as quietann described. If it's...

    I don't really think they're that similar. The primary difference is that the woman legally obtained the horse (who was needing to be put down anyway IIRC) and shot it humanely before doing anything...

    I've been to that auction many times and have bought horses from him. I would bet money that those horses came to him in that condition and were essentially dumped on him--it happens all the time....

    Arnica is a good home remedy for muscle soreness. Otherwise, there are plenty of liniment recipes available online for lower-leg soreness, which as the poster above me mentioned does not generally...

    I do mine myself, because I generally have at least 10 horses in my care and it makes more financial sense.

    However, because I have so many horses in my care, and most of them are training horses...

    Janet--in my (pretty remote) area it is very difficult to get a vet to do a farm call except in emergency situations, and very expensive. The horses I've sold there have all had to leave the farm for...

    Um, this isn't universally true. Strangles absolutely is a reportable disease in some states. I've fortunately never had to deal with a strangles outbreak at my barn (knock on wood ;)) but I've had...

    But it isn't always equal at all. At my barn, I had different people to clean the stalls and do turnout. The girls doing turnout were also grooming for me and were paid a daily salary; the girls...

    I'm just surprised anyone would think that woman isn't attractive. I mean, her facial expression is really odd and not particularly flattering, but with a normal expression she'd be quite lovely IMO.

    I do too. I don't even own any high heels--highest ones I have are on my cowboy boots. :lol: My legs are long and slim enough and I tower over most people anyway, so I'm pretty happy to not wear...

    That is a really good idea. I almost always have at least one dog with me, and I do sometimes worry about what would happen to him if I'm injured in an accident. I think I'll be making a card like...

    Just a guess on the shavings, but it may be that the aisles are swept more frequently when the trainer is not there for whatever reason. I was always amazed at how incredibly dirty my barn aisle got...

    Yeah, even with additional details that's way out of line. Even if your horse was in full training with that person that would be out of line. I know some trainers don't want any owner input into...

    Costs definitely vary. It's cheaper for me to keep horses where I am now, so if I was running a boarding stable I probably wouldn't charge as much. But when I was charging that, it really did just...
