    You're right, no 2-yr old reining futurities. I've been following an in-law's two long yearlings, that have been under saddle the last 6 weeks with a reining trainer, and was under the impression...

    Unfortunately, many performance prospects, like reiners, are started even earlier than that...as long yearlings in preparation for the 2-yr old futurities. I don't agree with that...at all.

    About a year ago, while trail riding with SLW and another, a juvenile Great Horned Owl crashed landed in a tree practically over our heads. It then got tangled in a vine and was dangling upside down....

    Everything mentioned describes the kitten my daughter came home with a couple of months ago.

    Five month old "Daisy" (no pics at the moment) is driving both my daughter and me crazy! I keep a...

    Awesome scenery, KIloBright. Nothing better in my book than riding mountain trails, which is something hard to come by in Kansas...although, the Flint Hills can be really pretty in the spring.

    I don't dislike square-toed boots. I just haven't invested in a pair, since my round-toed Ariat roper slip-ons are so comfortable and still going strong after 5 years. Plus, my DH got me another pair...

    It's nice to see and hear what people are doing with their 'western' horses, and everyone seems to be well-mounted on good looking horses!

    I don't really have any specific goals for the coming...

    Sounds excessively high to me, as well. I paid $182.00 for the neutering of a 75lb GSD a month ago, and that price included mandatory 5 days of pain meds. I thought even that fee was a little high...

    I like your style. Was shredding some air mandolin, myself, to LZ classics over the weekend, from their greatest hits cd...after finishing the book "Robert Plant, A Life" by Paul Rees. Good read. Oh,...

    Yes, I think they were both about 7 mos. old. Apparently, they had small change in their coin purses, because I sure don't remember what I'm seeing with the GSD! It will be interesting to see how...

    Okay, my memory fail...and the GSD was more well-endowed than the yorkie and aussiexlab. ;)
  13. Questions about Current Neutering Procedure.

    It's been at least 9 years since my own two dogs were neutered. I was a little surprised when I took my son's almost-one yr old GSD in for his snip-n-clip a few weeks ago and have questions.

    How...

    Wow, that pen looks totally unsuitable for horses...let alone dogs. And are you sure your two are getting enough to eat? The big horse looks rather bony and quite underweight, and from what I can...

    IME, I think 15" is going to be on the small side. I'm 5'7 1/2", 132lbs, size 6, and fairly proportional. I had a 14.5" barrel saddle I rode in for years, but always felt it was on the verge of too...

    Another vote for mockingbird. We have them seemingly year round in our yard and they definitely can be noisy in the middle of the night. Not cool when you enjoy sleeping with open windows...temps...

    Take this with a grain of salt, because I'm sure others will disagree...however, it worked for me.

    I bought a 2-yr old paint filly a few years ago. Kept her in the roundpen where she could have...

    Thanks for the ideas, all.

    The cut-down hog panel idea had crossed my mind. If the edges could be specifically bent, it might be possible to slide it along the window frame into place, only...

    YES...this site has more on the order of what I had in mind. Thanks.

    Nope, this window will never be needed as an escape hatch.

    Yep, have been googling for days, been to Home Depot and Lowes, and not finding what I want...something lightweight (as in, not a stall grid, etc), with dimensions that are close or can be cut down....

    That's plan B. Have a local guy that could probably come up with something, but would cost more...and take too long.

    Really didn't think what I want would be so difficult to find.

    ...like this?

    I've been scouring the net for a window grate similar to the one above that can actually be...

    Yes, just put him in a snaffle and see how he goes. Since, horses are generally started with direct reining, shouldn't be a problem for him.

    Hope the granddaughter has fun with Pony Club!
