    I wouldn't have a problem with the being early. It's the lack of communication that would annoy me. I adore my farrier - if he's going to be early or late, or wants to reschedule because of a...

    I'll add that since my accident last year I've had quite a few more muscle cramps/charley horses in that leg than I ever used to (usually my calf or the top of my foot/pulls my toes back and up) and...

    I came off my young horse last spring when he spun out from under me - I basically dismounted and landed feet first and then plopped on my ass. Sat there for a second and only realized that my foot...

    Urgh. A friend hauled a horse for me once and out on the interstate she would hit the brakes every time a semi passed us. By the time we got to where we were going I was dreading the ride home...

    *** Spoiler - about Missy ***

    When people were throwing out theories of Missy I saw someone somewhere mention that she could be a return of the Rani. Since I haven't seen any old Who episodes I...

    I bought these last year and wore them all winter to work (in an office). I usually wear them folded over but you can also lace them all the way up. I loved them - SO comfortable!! They also come...

    Hadn't even thought about hoof boots. Have never used them in the past but maybe I'll look into them. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I feel your pain! I've been having this problem also - haven't ridden my younger horse in a month because my riding area is all grass and his feet are sliding all over the place. When I try to...

    My gelding was diagnosed with a RH suspensory strain just before Thanksgiving. Did shockwave twice and took him home with instructions to lay him up for 4-6 weeks - no riding but could do turnout. I...

    Well, unfortunately not at all what I was expecting. She was diagnosed with Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia and is a very, very sick little dog. The good news is that x-rays didn't show any major...
  11. Corgi going to vet for general "ickyness"

    Our eight-ish year old (over the years, I've kind of forgotten how old she is) corgi hasn't felt well all weekend. Not wanting to eat, just lying around, yellowish wet poop. She's got an...

    I thought that there were only three causes of death to choose from - natural causes, homicide or accident. One of those is chosen and then the manner of death is noted separately (blunt force...

    I've started getting them fairly frequently after I broke my leg last year after I got out of all the casts and splints. I have plates on both my tibia and fibula and have had some issues with...

    Looks like all that's left is O/S, with maybe one or two models having a Pony size available (the Nantucket is on sale, in addition to the Wellfleet). One of my geldings has a big moose head, so I...

    So very sorry for your loss. The people here may have their differences but they always seem to step up when someone is in need and it's so helpful to have others who understand exactly where you're...

    Here's her info from datasource. I can't copy her pedigree here but if you want to PM me your email address I'll see if I can scan and email it to you. No show record listed.

    Totally understand! I had stem cell and surgery done on my gelding's suspensory tear last week and I got a little teary-eyed leaving him for them to work on. I knew it wasn't a major surgery but...

    I just put my youngster on Tribute's K Finish and have been very pleased with it. He started losing weight (and he's normally lean and lanky anyway) when he went into training and after a month this...

    I got dumped off my greenie last April, ending up with a nasty tib/fib fracture, and was very thankful I've kept my policies (I have both accident and short-term disability). I was off work for 15...

    SmartPak now has a plus-size Tredstep on their website. I'm barely 5'1" with a 7 1/2-8 foot and fat legs (17" right calf and 18" left calf thanks to a broken tib/fib last year). I just ordered them...

    To me it kind of depends on who is prepping the order for you. When I worked at Cracker Barrel as a waitress, it was the waitstaff's job to get everything together, making sure the order was...

    I supplemented my hay with Lucerne Farms chopped/bagged hay two years ago when we had a drought. The horses loved it but it just would've been too expensive to feed it exclusively to four horses. ...
