  1. Profile pic vs. Tagged pic: Equine style

    My boy is such a gorgeous animal, but he's a complete goober. Before I bought him, he was a show horse for Cal Poly Pomona and had a calendar-boy-type photo shoot with exquisite results (although...

    Snowball ate last night! :D Note the happy lump resting on the roof of his Lego house. I think he likes to be left alone a little longer between feeds, and prefers to fully digest the previous meal...

    xcjumper, Mushroom, Amelia, Fuzzy, and Cheese Whiz's clutch-mate Creeper isn't showing signs of going blue, either, so they just don't go with the sibling flow. Should be just fine--my guess is...

    Dr. Bolognese's office contacted me the other day. He had perused my MRIs, records, and survey information, and wanted me to schedule a telemedicine appointment with him. I've been told he only...

    Well, Sunrise is doing great but still requires really specific feeding approaches: the mouse needs to be frozen, then dipped in boiling water for ~7 seconds, and then offered to him off a spoon (so...

    So sorry. Life has gotten in the way of me posting (darn that life), but I have been wanting to update.

    I offered feed again (going with the every 4-6 day regimen), and Sunrise just inhaled it. ...

    Although after some Googling...perhaps I should add if at all possible I'd like to keep the price under $1000. :eek: Is that even possible for my purposes and needs?

    I've heard good things about treeless saddles, though I know little about them. I'll look into it. :)
  9. Recommendations of light, comfy trail saddle for members of the Broken Body Club?

    I just got a call that my western pleasure saddle--previously my trail saddle, until it was revealed to be far too narrow for my new boy--sold on consignment today. So, I can officially start...

    I wound up sending a Hail Mary pass out to Dr. Bolognese, formerly of the Chiari Institute, now at the Chiari Neurological Center. I have some reasons to suspect I may have a connective tissue...

    That's a new one that he lets you hold him while he drinks. I've never really tried, though, to be fair.

    I'm getting reports Whiz's siblings are entering their blue phase for their second...

    Whoo hoo! After waiting 48 more hours, Snowball ate last night. :) He ate readily too, so...YAY!

    That's two meals in a week for these guys. They're looking much better; I think they were...

    It depends on a few factors, like heat and health, but the average I'd say is about 48-72 hours. Snowball had poop in her cage just today, which is a LONG time to digest (6 days)...but as emaciated...

    Today, I decided to throw my hat in the ring, literally. It's an old, already partially destroyed hat that was no good for wearing anymore, so I thought I'd let my boy have it.

    He LOVED it and...

    Snake poop is like bird poop--white urine that hardens and black stool mixed in. Also like birds, they pee and poop simultaneously. Pythons can digest every part of the mouse--hair, teeth, bones,...

    Snowball refused to eat last night, but I'm being a bit ambitious as she hasn't even pooped out her last meal and it's only been 4 days. I aim to try again with her this weekend.

    Ooh, I love the idea of the jug treat dispenser! I usually have done things like take a Martinelli's gallon bottle, rinse it out, put rocks in the bottom, and hang it up--filling it with treats will...

    So happy to hear Mushroom made it safely! Sounds like he's adjusting well--at least, normally. A lot of times we don't see even my son's yearling because she is very fond of burrowing. We fed her...

    It's been 4 days and the snakelings are getting active, so I thought I'd try feeding again.

    Sunrise: Success! She went straight for her boiled pinkie and immediately started swallowing, even...

    Cheese Whiz and Amelia's big sister Izzy still loves her tree. :)

    Glad he settled Kitari. He has some bluff in him--really, they all do at this age; not like they can deliver!--and they often get...

    :lol: "I'm a big girl now! No more crib! I get a big girl bed!"

    Edited to add: I weigh my snakes in a light plastic tub thingy (it weighs 114 grams, to be specific ;) )that's about 12" long...

    :lol: He was groggy. I had taken him directly from his deli cup to the scale, and he had clearly been asleep. A few moments later, there is NO WAY he would have stayed on that scale for more than...

    I'm shipping out our last hatchling Mushroom today (to a COTHer, no less!), so I took the opportunity to take some contrast photos.

    He is *younger* than these girls (his hatch date is 8/4), but...

    There are definitely some species that are easier than others. Corn snakes are great first reptile pets because they are so low maintenance: they're hardy, they don't have high temp requirements...
