    Oh how funny the timing of this. I sort of reached the conclusion yesterday, moreso today, that it may be time to let him move on to a better-suited home. He's a nice horse and I've barely sat on him...

    Hmm. I'm a DIYer who's never been a working student/barn manager/groom. Wonder what percentage that makes me. ;)

    I'm a nearly 100% DIYer. I pay someone to feed and clean in the mornings so hubby going to work and my taking the boys to school isn't crazy (er, crazier), and that same person vacation-feeds for us....

    Hoooo boy. Um...yes. Yes we do.

    Lessee...we have three adult corn snakes (technically four at the moment, but our Craigslist rescue has been sold and is awaiting cooperating weather for...

    Polydor, this condition has opened my eyes to the nightmare of incompetence that can surround it. I've seen the MRIs of post-op patients of non-Chiari specialists posted to support groups on the FB...

    Thank you again, everyone. You all encourage me so--more than I share and more than I can express.

    Polydor, I've wanted to go into certain doctor's offices with two-hand-single-finger-salutes...

    Thank you so much everyone. :) I'm so happy for her. I'm pretty sure the new owner will keep me updated on her, so I'll pass the info on to you here.

    Alas Louise, he doesn't have horses, so won't...

    SillyHorse, thank you for checking in! I actually learned some interesting new details since receiving my surgical report. It showed there was even more going on than the MRI showed, which I guess...

    Runway is sold! And she's going to a home I could not have scripted better for her. A well-reputed professional (his name is well known, as is his reputation) who lost all of his animals in a tragic...

    I just sent SmartPak the email with many photos enclosed. Just...weird.

    Jeito I find it interesting you get powdered supplements but haven't noticed any issues. But, I'm wondering (sheer...

    Girl is gaining in a BIG FAT HURRY! Ha!

    Pre-feed weigh in today, she was up another 23g: 365g of healthy corn snake!

    Now, I was thinking about 375g for her goal weight, but I'm bothered that...

    Thank you everyone. Today was amazing. I felt...bright. Alert. Energized. LET'S GO DO STUFF! UP AND AT THEM! It's like I've spent the last few years living life looking through dirty windows.

    I...

    I have to wonder if it's related to the powder affecting the sealant. I looked at Tril's Grand Complete tonight from the January shipment, and there's no sign of the air bubble/lack of seal thing at...

    Ha--I've washed my hands twice and I still smell that stuff on my fingers. It's like an earthy aspartame.

    trubandloki--thanks for the idea! It's been about 50g since I last did that. :) Here are comparison shots:

    The day after I got her at 188g

    ;) I really should learn parseltongue.
  17. Is anyone else having this weird SmartPak issue--containers coming partially opened?

    Note: this is not a bashing SP thread. Still happy with them, still using them, satisfied with how they've handled this, but MAN this has my head scratching. I actually posted about this in the...

    You know, I haven't measured her as it's a bit tricky with an active snake, heh. Shed skins are stretched out from the process--I think the rule of thumb is subtract 3" or so from them--so next time...
