    I have a tail swisher... And I HATE seeing tail swishing (though there is definitely a difference between swishing and wringing). I have a currently 3rd level appy with an AMAZING work ethic who...

    I grew up riding Arabians, my grandmother has trained them since she was in her teens, and I love them. They are maybe a little too smart for some = ) but they can make really wonderful partners if...

    I have a Prestige that is a 17.5 and I wish it were an 18. It's fine on my more advanced horses when I ride with longer stirrups, but I'd prefer an 18 for a little more flexibility. In most brands,...

    Minneapolis Kid-Friendly Barn

    I'm looking for a barn where I could take my 7 year old niece for her first ride when I go to visit (and maybe gift future riding lessons if she likes it). It doesn't need to be strictly dressage,...

    As far as the crating goes, 8 hours for a puppy in a crate is a long time without breaks. Plus, if she really can't hold it yet for 8 hours, she may end up learning to pee in the crate, which is the...

    I have a very short backed 15' appy. He goes great in my 17" Passier GG (NON-gusseted panels) and also in a 17.5" Prestige without the gusseted panels (can't remember the model). I've seen some...

    Lots of good advice - I'll add my own personal anecdote.

    I, too, have a hot curler = ) He came to me with preexisting bridle fears (was either through the bridle or behind it), but he presented...

    Also wanted to follow up summerhorse's muzzle comments. The track muzzles are used to gauge order of finish, as she said. They are also used because, like horses, very competitive greys can get...

    Completely agree with smm20 on starting a grey with cats. My older male cat is the alpha of our pack. He will stand his ground with any dog and is a great intro for non cat savvy dogs. So start with...

    I personally like the room idea, but I've never had trouble with movers opening doors they shouldn't. Granted, we haven't yet moved from a really large house, so that's just my experience. My cats...

    I'm a little late to this thread, but I wanted to join in because I do a lot of volunteer work and fostering for a local greyhound adoption group and really love them.

    I will say that MOST of them...

    I volunteer with a greyhound rescue, and the group is wonderful. Some might consider our fees pricey ($250-275 depending upon age), but the dogs are FULLY vetted before being adopted out (dentals,...

    (Ruling out all medical issues, of course, this is my anecdotal data)

    Our girl has always been a little sluggish to eat. She usually will get to it eventually if you leave it down for her, but I...

    Just wanted to throw this website out there: http://catinfo.org/

    I'm kind of like a broken record, but it really has some great info on cat nutrition, wellness, and urinary tract issues. Really...

    Pretty much what everyone else said = )

    Cons: 2x the cost. Potential incompatability. Harder to travel with or leave with sitters when you travel without them.

    Pros: Keep each other...

    I'm going to agree with the foster recommendation. A LOT of people just aren't cat people. Just because you pick one and it lives with you doesn't mean you're going to like it (and I say that as a...

    Hope your boy has no issues with the scratches - they can get nasty quick!

    I've moved a couple of times with my kitties. My boy does best sedated or he will yowl and get himself upset enough to be sick. I've found both of mine do better if I turn on the radio and don't...

    In response to your title: "Are people just idiots? Dog-related." YES. Haha. Actually, you can leave out the "dog-related" modifier!

    If it had been big dudes, I might not have gone out,...

    I have heard that it's a problem that can occur, though my breeder said she hasn't seen much of it in her lines (she has 3 mature females in her house right now that live in peace and harmony). ...

    I honestly hate the overdone overtrack walk... Moderation! I see so many horses that are just built funky and move funky in order to have that giant walk - it's like their hind ends have gotten a...

    No, these are great posts for info, it's never all sunshine and roses with animals, haha. We have a friend that had a rare difficult one from an excellent breeding (and she is a GORGEOUS specimen). ...

    I think our group might because I've been fairly involved, but I will certainly confirm = ) None of the greys get fostered before they are speutered, which helps.

    Well the obvious answer is to get another couch = ) Our greyhound has requested at least a love seat in the bedroom, haha. Now we might have to oblige!
