    Chachie is right on here IMHO. Dealt with many people who have had medical issues (including a former boss) that made them look drunk or stoned, when in fact they had a condition or their meds were...

    Get a spare. They are fairly cheap on Amazon. I got sent home with one and then bought a spare so that I could wear one while the other was airing/drying (you aren't supposed to wear them in the...

    If you ride in sandy areas at all or cross any sort of water I would not recommend SMBs or similar type boots. The sand will work into the boots no matter how tight you get them and they soak up...

    Not sure where you are, but several of the boarding barns around here have the large dumpsters for manure that are then picked up by one of the landscaping supply companies in the area for composting.

    We compost. If you do it properly you can really reduce your volume, but it does require maintenance to get the best results. We spread a bit of the composted manure (cow and horse) on our garden and...

    I would totally shop there!

    I can get away with regular length adult breeches in some brands (thank you Treadstep!) I can fit in the kid sizes in some brands too, but boots are the WORST for me. I...

    I love coconut oil, but it can be a pore clogger for some people. What I currently use is Save Face, which is a solid lotion bar. My neighbor (who owns the company and makes the products) hooked me...

    Yes, but most companies will not do only MM/Surgical without also requiring mortality.

    Markel, The Hartford, and Great American all offer MM/Surgical ONLY as a supplement to a mortality policy.

    This is great advice. It is amazing how much can be accomplished by actually TALKING to someone, instead of just searching their belongings and jumping to conclusions. Please talk to your daughter...

    That is exactly what you should do. Get them very warm, then buff with a clean cloth. I like cut up old t-shirts for applying/buffing leather products because they're soft enough to not damage even...

    Depending on the company and the amount you are insuring for, you will either have to prove value yourself or have an appraisal. Things like show records, offspring value/breeding income (if a...

    I am 5'4". I don't think there is a wrong size horse as long as the horse can safely carry the rider and the rider can control the horse. Obviously, if you are showing you need a horse that can do...

    Stushica, have you tried the pink sheen spray? I used to use it as a finishing spray when I showed in hand. Gives a nice, natural looking shine and is better for the horse's coat than just about...

    Didn't even notice in your original post you mentioned whitening also. I use Mrs. Stewart's Bluing mixed with shampoo. I don't really have a set ratio of bluing to shampoo, I just make the shampoo...

    Well, it works for my unicorn...

    In all seriousness though, I wash tails thoroughly to remove any lingering gunk (gotta love mares for nasty tails:rolleyes:). Condition tail with with a nice,...

    Perhaps these people are exactly the reason he is holding the clinic. I have seen far more misguided, scary, flat out dangerous "natural horsemanship" trained horse/rider combinations than I've seen...

    Vegetable lasagna - I use sliced eggplant instead of pasta. I normally make mine with real cheese, but I have made it for vegan friends with the soy cheese and it is still good. For best results,...

    Thanks for the replies, you guys have given me a lot to work on. I will try to get his mind working a bit more and see if that helps. I guess I have been mentally comparing him to the working dogs...

    Their "biologist" has apparently never been around any wildlife. Or dogs for that matter. As CowgirlDressage points out, canines don't eat like that.

    Swimming is definitely going to happen once it warms up a bit. Right now he's curious about getting in the water, but not enough to get all the way in on his own.

    He actually has a very trainable...
  22. "New" dog is driving me nuts!

    My SO and I adopted a large mixed (lab, greyhound, pit) breed dog last October. He was a stray that got dropped off at the small animal clinic that a friend of mine works at. He was super...

    Every one of my current tattoos have a meaning to me, so I don't regret any of them. So far, I've "designed" (with help from the artist) every tattoo I have and I have several more in the works that...

    Playhouse Coffee Roasting in Eugene. All of their coffees are organic and fair trade, micro-roasted for the best flavor. Try the Brazil Groto Funda, it has notes of cocoa and almond and is very low...

    It depends on the horse. Some horses that don't have good results with other treatments will have good results with firing.
