    I've fed Kirkland for years now. Doggie (11-yr-old Springer bitch) used to get Adult Chicken Premium. Then they got in the Salmon kind (I believe it's the same stuff as "Taste of the Wild" brand) so...

    Well, darn it, up until 6 mo. ago I wouldn't have known a skinny snake if it, well, bit me, but now I can tell that those poor things aren't right! I wonder how come they're that way? Incompetent...

    Wonderful, thought-provoking book and movie. I was particularly interested in it because my family actually had "help" at one time, many years ago. I was born in Daytona Beach, FL in the 60s and...

    What a cool thread! I have only ever been around two stallions on a regular basis, a Paint and a TB. Both were extremely well-mannered boys, who lived right next to mares and geldings in the barn and...

    Sorry, this is long - worried mom here!

    I am the proud mom of a wonderful 11.5 y.o. L/W English Springer girl. Up until this spring she has always grown a humongous amount of hair - thick and...

    I'm glad you posted a snake thread because now I can talk about "mine!" She's actually my son's pet, but he has gone off to college (actually a U.S. Service Academy, so he's REALLY gone) and now his...

    OP, I'm sorry you are so disappointed with your new ABI manure spreader. Rusting that quickly, especially when you've been doing proper maintenance, is not acceptable. Neither is failure of the...

    What a sweetheart, and huge kudos to you for saving him. For the record, I agree with above poster - ignorance is no excuse. The people seem to have been very inexperienced horse owners or just...

    Great thread! I've got one that nobody else has mentioned, but I'll never forget it. Homefront was a simply terrific drama about folks in a small town in OH during WWII. It ran 1991-1993 and starred...

    Hi, OP. As luck would have it, Millcreek is working on an educational video right now to help people answer this very common question. There are advantages and disadvantages for each drive system. I...
