  1. Anyone playing the grocery store Monopoly game?

    The one where they give you the pieces at checkout and you have to past them to the board. It's at Shaw's and a bunch of other places.

    I'm not wild about it, but I've seen it work out ok. The UVM Morgan Horse Farm raffles off a UVM-bred foal every year. I think they've had good luck with it in the past - I don't know if they have...

    AGREE. Wow. Shiraz is a machine. What an amazing horse - and CR is one for the future. Seriously, what is up with leaving her off the lists?!

    I started my mustang at 11, and he was totally green. Not range-wild anymore (he'd sat untouched at his first home and then at a rescue since he was 5), but so green that he didn't know how to pick...

    Thanks for all the words of caution, they're actually making me feel good because I feel like I've mostly got the answers under control!

    Thank you all!

    Regarding the long time on the market - yeah, it's probably the biggest point of concern for me. This is probably not a forever house, as much as we do love it. But it really...

    I've been working on a lot of focus games with our young dog. She is very good on walks until she's not, and then she hits the end of the leash chasing a leaf, squirrel, funny shadow, you name it.

  11. How to keep young dog from scratching up doors?

    We have a lab/hound/boxer/something puppy who's just over a year old. She's got all the energy you'd expect, in short bursts, but after some tough stints as a younger puppy she's really maturing...

    Hard ventral edema?

    My horse is presenting with an odd swelling on his belly/chest right now. It looks quite a bit like a small ventral edema, but it's hard, no pitting whatsoever, and it's just on his right side, a...

    Ongoing eye issues?

    I am pretty close to my wit's end with this. Luckily, it hasn't been serious, knock wood, but it is maddening.

    Background: 19yo mustang gelding, in light to moderate work (semi-retired), diagnosed...

    I think once a month after the loading dose is a good place to start. We did that for about 9 months, and then moved up to once every three weeks, with great results. He was just feeling NQR in that...

    Thank you everyone! It does sound like I should be aiming more for 10-12 acres.

    Strictly speaking, you don't need it - but you're really, really going to want it. It's a relatively small investment and it makes a HUGE difference. I won't haul a bumper pull without one.
