    My horse has rings in her feet from her foundering before I purchased her. She gets 12+ hours of turnout per day, good quality hay and grain, a half a dozen buddies who treat her well, and a mom who...

    I like to see an overall trend of improvement - I know there will be rides where the only thing I'm accomplishing is making the horse fitter and she isn't actively learning anything, and then there...

    My horse is out on night turnout for 12-14 hours a day and then spends 10-12 hours in her stall, under fans, during the day. While I fully believe in 24/7 turnout where possible, my mare gets...

    I was at Gamblers Choice for an IHSA show a couple of years ago and was pretty impressed by the facilities - nice barns/stalls, nice big indoor, and pretty grounds. I didn't get the behind-the-scenes...

    I know this thread is old, but I think I know where you went to school, mswillie, and I'm there now working on the same degree. Luckily no cuterebra in my kittens though. I kind of want to see one in...

    I think that would be a fun idea as long as you don't expect to receive big-ticket items. You might "register" for things such as brushes, treats, saddle pads, etc. so that no one has to spend a...

    I hate stink bugs, because they're so clumsy when they fly around and I always think they're going to fall on me or fly into me. And heaven forbid they make sudden movements.

    I can remove ticks...

    I agree that we should conserve resources. I don't think anyone is PRO-wastefulness. But the fact is that it takes about 5 lbs of feed to produce 1 lb of beef. The land that is going towards...

    I'm a rider but I prefer mares because I tend to work with them better, they make me think harder (which I like) and I find their personalities entertaining. Not that geldings can't match those...

    THIS. It's the factory farming that gets me, and refusing to eat food produced by that system is my form of protest. Do I realistically expect to change the food industry by myself, or even aided by...

    Yikes! When I was half-leasing, I always wanted to know the owner's expectations on when to call/email, if they needed help with anything, etc. I'd make a blanket offer of "call me if you need...

    I have a mare like this, she's only 8 but she's worn the front aspect of her incisors about halfway down the tooth. The collar greatly reduces her grabbing things with her teeth but she still does it...

    I definitely think there is something to this idea. I think I have weak ligaments on the outside of both of my ankles, and tend to roll my ankles easily. This is most obvious when I step onto my...
