    OP, did you say that you had blood panels done? Many have suggested you rule out anything medical, and I've lost track; if you have already done so, please disregard. If you haven't had full blood...

    Ground work did it for my TB girl

    This! You've received some good advice, from many way more experienced than I, but ground work did it for me. My highly reactive, frightened, rear-spin-and-dash mare was dangerous when I got her....

    I forgot about the observatory-haven't been there since it reopened, but good choice-and there are riding/multi-use trails through Griffith Park and the LA Zoo is there. 2DogsFarm is right about the...

    Lots of great suggestions, but the warning about distances is not to be taken lightly. LA is huge and the traffic horrendous, it can take hours to get from one side of LA to another in peak traffic....

    Someone PM'd me and very nicely let me know that I'd missed the horrible news, though I thought I'd read the whole thread carefully, I clearly missed that. I'm so sorry for posting my hopes for his...

    HUGS!!!
    If they want out, they'll figure out a way. Years ago, one of my foundation bitches slipped past my husband when he had the garage open (Yep, I won't let him forget it!). She followed a...

    If you use the keywords 'cremation jewelry' on ETSY, you'll find many sizes and varieties, including little personal urns for ashes that are meant to be worn like a pendant. Some are imported, but...

    Is there data to back this up? I was told this same thing by my vet, who casually remarked that many farms (in his experience as a local TB farm vet) expected a certain amount of foal loss with their...

    I'm really glad to hear this, and that was my experience growing up in NoVa (big name TB studs near us), but here in California, some ranches seem to run differently. I say some.
    I purchased a filly...

    Exactly-a day or 2 without the supplement is no problem; a calm, comfortable mare that can go through competition=worth it. Thanks for that added info.

    My redhead has horrible cycles. If you didn't know her, you'd swear she was colicky and call the vet-she's nasty, irritable, cow-kicks at her belly and nips at her sides, is beyond cinchy and...

    Okay, now that is cute and triggered a favorite, and somewhat frustrating, memory. When a kid, I had a big TB with the most perverse sense of humor. One year at the PC clinic, we were ordered to...

    It's tough when they reach this point. My boy just hit 12 this summer, and I've noticed a decided difference in his mobility. Much stiffer at the beginning of summer, but in the last 2 weeks has had...

    Sorry, Alibi- I wasn't clear. "Pressure" was clearly a poor word choice on my part, especially relative to metal bits. I've never pressed metal bits against teeth-too many ways that could go wrong....

    My current girl has been more difficult than any other. She drops her nose into a halter easily enough, but we got to the point where I'd walk in with a bridle, and her head would go up. I tried...

    I could not have said it better!:yes:
    Their plan is not to take out any one sport or discipline in one fell swoop, that's just the banner headline to get attention. Their plan may take another 10,...

    I respectfully beg to differ. PETA is a dangerous organization, and not just in the US. They have a TON of money, have been raising and training home grown lawyers and political lobbyists for years,...

    I watched and it seemed to go very well-textbook from what I could see online. The dam has calmed down and has bonded with her new one, which is now nursing on its own. But inquiring minds want to...

    A direct skunk hit on dogs really does blow-my hounds got a full-on, 'emptied their sacks' strike by a pair of skunks directly into their faces. I tried everything to remove that odorous material and...

    It's not wrong to shoot a dog that's chasing/killing livestock (I know some people can't fathom why anyone would). I agree that in rural areas there isn't usually any rescue/rehab/rehome...

    I second the skunk theory. I once lost the hens in my coop to a skunk. It was just like the carnage you described. It takes some doing to secure hen houses and yards from small vermin, but it can be...

    I think many of you isolated the roots of the problem. #1 is that most people don't know dogs and believe the myth about hybrid vigor, and #2 is that if you put a high enough price on something then...
