    I know it sounds a little out there, but I do truly think that sometimes these situations work out just the way they are supposed to! My parents wanted to adopt a Great Dane last year. They were so...

    I wouldn't worry too much about a fan back there - highway driving will actually keep him far more comfortable with airflow than a lot of stop and go traffic. You could test it out by riding back...

    When I had to plan my beloved Pookah's euthanasia, I knew that I absolutely did not want to be in town afterwards, with well-meaning friends trying to help. I booked a room in a dog-friendly hotel...

    I found a dog once on the side of the road who was microchipped (definitely the only time that's ever happened :-)) and we were able to trace him to an incredible organization in Florida called St....

    The last three bales I've bought have been really crap quality too. Very disappointing as one of the things I've always liked about them is that it was consistently beautiful hay. I keep just...

    Dark beers like Guinness definitely seem to help some horses with anhydrosis, based on anecdotal evidence anyway. I have used it with good results, but it was in conjunction with OneAC in a...

    Another vote for the Easy Breathe - I have gotten rid of every Best Friends muzzle I had. I have a horse who is prone to anhydrosis and he overheats in the Best Friends muzzle. I've been using the...

    They absolutely do have people who specialize in helping you conquer fear after an accident - I would highly highly recommend finding a sports psychologist, a few sessions could go a long way. The...

    Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!! Dex and a Cushings/metabolic/laminitis risk is typically a pretty dangerous combination. I don't want to advise against your vet, but it sounds like it may be time for a...

    I haven't tried one yet, but please post reviews if you do! I've looked at them before because they seem like a good option that is less restrictive on breathing. My horse is also prone to...

    Don't panic, I promise! They are never fun to deal with, but in my experience they do happen (horses are just creatures constantly looking for the most expensive way to die, after all :)). It...

    I think it's a great idea personally. I have a very high maintenance IR horse who is 18; he has been boarded for years at a hunter barn, and we just paid for additional services like hay soaking,...

    Totally depends on the horse - a lot of the old guys really seem like they love it and are far happier showing off with an audience.

    I'm jealous, I will be there too but I am sure not at his table!

    I must waste a lot of money, because I don't feel like I could spend anywhere close to 30% on housing costs and still afford board!

    I was thinking TSP too. But what you should definitely do is get some photos/details (i.e. what the wall surface is, which makes a big difference) and get to a Sherwin-Williams! I live five minutes...
  19. Ideas for stopping chunks of hair being removed by playmates?

    My horse is in really what is the best option for a turnout group of buddies for him at the barn where he is boarded. It's a group of three geldings, all with a tendency toward getting a bit chunky,...

    I can't fully recommend this as the bag I have is not leather, but I would at least check out http://www.mobileedge.com. My sister gave me one of their laptop bags when I started my first "real job"...

    Yes, it is a known side effect for some horses unfortunately. IF your vet okays it and it makes sense with his Cushings status/laminitis risk, I know some people that have been successful with...

    Sorry to not have a better outcome for you, but my Cushings/IR horse lost an eye to a fungal infection in a corneal ulcer two years ago. He spent three weeks at NCSU while we tried to treat it...

    I really don't think it's wise to give advice without seeing a horse in this condition, and particularly contrary to a vet's advice who has seen the horse, but I have to say based on your description...

    I'm also not a fan of nylon halters, but I do think in this situation you will be happiest with a nylon breakaway. I just can't imagine anything you could do to totally escape dye running off, and...
