    I think the Internet hyperbole machine is truly in high gear when you see eating nuts and failure to get a flu shot described as "spreading death and disease" and equated with driving on the wrong...

    "Rant 'n rave?" Nah! :D

    Just morbid curiosity to see exactly how deep the P.C. rabbit-hole really goes . . .
  3. So you believe flu shots should be mandated by...

    So you believe flu shots should be mandated by law for the entire population for the protection of your 3.5% immune-suppressed? Would you be willing to have the taxpayers PAY for that? What about...
  4. Spinoff: Social Responsibility, how far does it go?

    This is a spinoff from the vaccine thread, born of the strongly stated conviction many have that each and every person must make their own medical decisions based not entirely on their OWN perception...

    You forgot the imported WB dressage horse with the Hermes saddle! :lol:
  6. Great Question! That's directly proportional...

    Great Question!

    That's directly proportional to the kinds of horses you consent to board. More of mine are TB's than WB or QH, so the percentage is actually higher than might be expected some...
  7. You're quite right about that; I've got one old...

    You're quite right about that; I've got one old sweetie who's 34 and has me wound around his proverbial finger--he gets ANYTHING he wants or needs, and I don't even bill his equally lovable owner any...
  8. What I meant by "proportionate to other places in...

    What I meant by "proportionate to other places in your area" means that you value your own services, expertise and facility enough that you don't under-price what you're offering in relation to...

    Precisely. This issue is NOT "one-size-fits-all," for humans OR for animals.

    Read THIS, Bluey: http://sellingsickness.com/final-statement/

    (I assure you I don't just make this stuff up).

    HOLY--SUFFERIN'--CATS! :eek:

    The very idea that anyone on earth is worth $117,000 to do ONE procedure, let alone as an assistant, just boggles the mind. There is no way the system is...

    Yes, it can and does happen. I have heard of horses ordered euthanized and necropsied in order to collect a claim. It's a sad reality that for many, many owners who see horses as primarily a...

    Most of "those books" have been written by DOCTORS who are "coming clean" as a matter of conscience about exactly HOW MUCH of what is sold to us has very little hard science backing it up. When you...

    As someone who's made a "snatch" or two in the years since the economy crashed, I can tell you the odds are about 99% you'll wind up keeping him yourself if you go get him.

    The ones I "snatched"...

    If I had a dollar for every poster who's used COTH to vent at one time or another about a crazy boarder, trainer, SO, BF, BO, BM, or DD I'd be out of the boarding business and living on St. Barth's...

    Crock:

    That woman was off the rails irrational and had been a difficult client for many years. When I took her as a client, I had a lot less experience. What was posted at that time was only...
  16. Fairfax: If you are running your place properly...

    Fairfax: If you are running your place properly these issues should NEVER even come up. Humane laws exist to remediate situations where basic needs are not being met, and they SHOULD be tough. ...

    Almost every single point you raise can be managed before it arises by setting your place UP to make a profit from the get-go, meaning keeping it simple; having a VERY CLEAR idea of what kind of...

    What cracks me up is lots of posters who go ballistic (and they should!) at the thought of Government, commercial, or ideological controls on birth control and abortion seem to have NO problem with...

    THIS, precisely!

    By all means I vaccinate my animals against diseases for which there is a clear and present (not hypothetical) exposure and which are either fatal or expensive and difficult to...

    A great many show/sport owners and trainers would NOT want to keep the horse and foot the bill to retire it in a loss of use situation--which is why they may have asked the vet clinic to euthanize it...

    Our Really Kewl Hardware mostly gets used to rescue all the idiots down at the beach who refuse to evacuate in time when the water comes up. . . got quite a shakedown in Hurricane Sandy.

    That's exactly what I was going to say, but Laurie beat me to it! Betting that's the case; I picked up a nice broodmare exactly that way once and it IS "legit."

    It also isn't anyone else's...

    I have had the "worst case" you mention above, an owner who wants their horse put down not because it has to be, but as a matter of financial convenience. I can assure you many of us ARE NOT "forced...

    The simpler you keep it, the higher your profit margin will be.

    The amount of land needed depends on your preferred management style; stalls vs. run-ins, 24/7 turnout vs. in at night, etc. ...

    Watch out for that. The tractor dealer/service people near me won't sell you parts any more without running your serial number; apparently people are doing a lot of shady re-importing of American or...
