    I was just given the kit as a birthday gift - it's the one with the large and small groomers, spray and rubbing cloth. I haven't tried it yet, so I can't speak to effectiveness. However, the friend...

    Do give yourself some time - anesthesia effects have been known to linger for as long as a year, not to mention healing from the fall and the surgery. Take the downtime to become better acquainted...

    I am one who always stands at attention during the National Anthem; however, I've never faced this particular circumstance. I think in this case I would finish up whatever I was in the middle of,...

    Sounds like a vet check is in order, stat! If that doesn't turn anything up, then training strategies and/or rehoming options can be considered. But I'd start with a work-up. Good luck! I hope you...

    I have a gelding who doesn't like shots, but he HATES the vet. Just the sight (and smell) of that vet truck and he gets worked up. If you try to walk up and give me any injection, even after an oral...

    Okay, some are going to disagree with this, since it has a distinctly NH flavor, but I had the same issue and it worked for me. I started on the ground, using approach and retreat. Send the horse...

    Ooh, thanks, Jexa!! I'd never thought about polish rubbing off - guess that's why you have to keep re-polishing, huh? I will definitely look into dyeing the leather, though.

    I think you're...

    I was given an out-of-shape dressage saddle by a family friend who picked it up at an auction (the extent of friend's knowledge is "saddles go on horses and Spicy Molly likes horses"). I haven't...

    Two suggestions: I've always been told to dress a step above the job you're applying for. If the dress code for the job is business casual for example, you interview in business formal (i.e. a...

    Thanks for the replies! The more I thought about it, the more I realized a fly sheet was likely the only workable solution. So, a couple of questions. Neck or no neck? She is on 24/7 turnout with...

    Interesting situation. Do you have others actively interested in her right now? I mean, others who want to take her on a week trial as well?

    Can you ask for a greater amount in exchange for...

    Miss Mare seems to have recovered just fine. She is also back to loving her grain since I reduced the amount of water it is soaked in. Thank you to everyone for all the advice, experience, and...

    Thanks again for all the helpful replies! When she choked, she was eating dry TC Senior & 30% out of a bucket hung on the fence about knee level. When graining her, I took her out of the pasture...

    For those who have horses getting soaked feed, how soggy is too soggy? She's been getting increasingly dissatisfied with her mushy grain and this morning ate not even half. I have been putting the...

    Grounded, help me fill the time!

    So, I was informed today that I need to take a month to 6 weeks off from riding for a nagging back issue. Basically, I was told that I can rest for a bit and probably be (mostly) fine, or continue...

    Yes!! I saw it when I was little, and have tried to find it on DVD. The best I've done is VHS for a ridiculous amount (like, over a $100). If anybody finds it on DVD, I would love to know about it!

    I'm glad to know it doesn't seem likely to cause a cascade of Very Bad Things. Will definitely be keeping a close eye on her for the next few days. Thanks for the insight!
