    My worst-case-go-to treatment for thrush was to pour half a bottle of Lysol into a bucket, add water, and soak horse's foot for half an hour or so. Repeat whenever the foot no longer smells like...

    It is a ton of fun. But there are some horses who don't take kindly to cows and do the old "exit stage left" the first time one looks a them and MOOs. They can get used to it.

    I love hounds, but they are not for everyone as others have already said. They are noisy. They follow their noses and can't be off-leash. They need a fenced in yard. My coonhound was pretty much...

    I'm old, so I remember the old days when nuns always wore habits. We were brought up to respect the nuns. We all thought that they had Uzis (ok, back then it was sub-machine guns) under their...

    The ponies are all adorable and none of you look too big on them! I am terribly jealous, though --- I'd love a nice pony! Easier to get on --- and less of a distance to fall! :-)

    One of the sweetest tempered dogs I've ever known was a chow cross. She scared people until they knew her because all you could see was her white teeth --- black fur, black eyes, black tongue. She...

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I agree, I wouldn't want him to lie on a cold, hard floor all day, and the stall mat would be softer. And, I'd hope, impossible for him to destroy!
