    He sounds like a good man and a great vet.

    And oh, I am going to be sad when the last person who says "y'all come with me" instead of good-bye and "John Brown" instead of cussing leaves this...

    Oh, dear. I won't be any help to you then. I'm afraid I enjoy filleting bullies in the most public setting possible for maximum humiliation. This is why I'm a divorce lawyer, I reckon. :)

    No...

    Since you're more experienced than she is, maybe it would be good if you took her on (verbally!:D) in front of the people she's bullying into unsafe behavior. Just flat out tell her why what she's...

    Oh, sure. I think most horse people have encountered people like you describe. I don't know that I ever thought of it as bullying - but maybe it is.

    I always just say no to whatever...

    Abusing and/or killing their victim's animals is sooo common for abusers. OP, does your friend have animals she cares about? Maybe that's a good thing to point out to her. At least put her on her...

    I bet, given your user name, that you've already read Denny Emerson's book, How Good Riders Get Good. But if you haven't be sure and get a copy. He has a whole big section on how to make life...

    See, I'm kind of jealous of you. Because you are so young with so much horse experience already.

    I always wanted to ride as a kid, and my dad and all his family would've helped out with a horse...

    I hope the lady who makes Handcrafted Jewels stays in business forever! :)

    Her lead ropes are made of double braid yacht rope - so it has a nice live feel. So many of the lead ropes, especially...

    I think you just have to give it to her straight. Ask her to meet you for lunch, or a drink, or a ride, or whatever. Just the two of you. Then lay out why you're concerned. List the warning signs...

    You know, some of the best advice I ever got, when I first started practicing family law, was from an older lawyer who said "You don't have to do everything your client wants you to do." So many...

    Absolutely, if you can deprive the attacking dog of air it will eventually let go. :yes:

    Yes, rolling up into a ball seems like extraordinarily bad advice - even if you're being attacked by a bear! The lady in Fla said she got away by kicking and screaming and punching (and praying!). ...

    I had the same concerns as you, OP, about whether to get my elderly border collie's teeth cleaned. She was a stray, and she may be anywhere from 14 to 17 years old. But I know - cause the family...

    It's amazing how much one retains. :) I don't keep up my signing skills either. I guess the last time I worked as an interpreter was the summer of 1996. Then a few years ago I wound up getting...

    Gack. Just read my response from three years ago. My, how things have changed.

    Now I would say - if you're scared, it's a sign something's not right. Figure out what that is and fix it.

    I don't know about where they exchange the child. I gathered from the OP that there are some things about this guy's visitation that mom doesn't think are safe for the minor child.

    Talk to your lawyer. Tell her/him how frightened you are (although I expect s/he already knows this). The two of you work out some coping strategies in advance.

    What breed? If it's a QH, tread carefully. As Bluey said, there may be a real good reason there are no papers.

    What's the seller's explanation for no papers?
