    I thought when I read this this morning, "What would I do?"

    If I had a horse who had suffered an injury that would compromise his ability to happily, comfortably move around a pasture in the...
  2. Health insurance for the vehicle, or: insurance paying for "crap happens"?

    A friend of mine was able to successfully get her auto insurance policy to pay for a new transmission in her car. The transmission had just gone up- no accident, she was able to safely get it off the...

    My initial reaction to this picture was "I certainly would not." If the horse misreads it and comes down with some soft part of his body on one of those vertical planes, that is not a good day.

    Tip did one of these maneuvers a year or two ago. The tension in the muscle was immediately apparent to the touch and I did not involve the vet as he responded quickly to treatment. I had him on bute...

    This is so interesting. Thank you for the information!

    Can someone explain the "bee guy" thing? I was upset when I first read this as I thought that an exterminator had been called, and we need all the bees we can get, but it seems that most of you are...

    Had to comment as we also have a Patronus in the family. "Shaino" arrived without a show name (and actually his name was Shane, but his agent called him Shane-o out of affection and we thought that's...

    This. My doctor and I just had another conversation about birth control methods yesterday. I have been on depo for the last 3 years because I have some associated reproductive conditions that make my...

    It was hardly done in a scientific fashion, but supplementation with L-Carnitine was part of the equation that brought my horse's high leptin levels into mid-range of normal (I don't remember the...

    On the way home from college, my kid sister stopped off at the barn to visit my horse. The first thing he did when she walked into his stall was lick her enthusiastically across the face. He then...

    Do you have suggestions for brands to try for a T-shirt friendly, everyday type of push-up bra that is long-lasting? I'm a 36B/34C depending on the brand, no particular fitting issues. I love VS's...

    Shame that animal hasn't got any scope to speak of.

    Does anyone know its breeding offhand?
  13. I've been part of a ridden portion of several...

    I've been part of a ridden portion of several PPE's because the vet wanted to evaluate the horse's way of going under saddle as well as fitness of wind- after a warm up at walk, trot, and canter, if...

    Getting rid of ants in the house

    It's spring, so everyone in the neighborhood is more active... including the ants who have decided to investigate our kitchen and bar. Previously I used Raid bait stations and that did the trick but...

    File me in the drawer of "I don't ride unsupervised without it." I've needed to call for assistance a few times while hacking out and was glad I had it.

    OP, I used to hate belt clips for phones-...

    Reading through this thread, all I can do is repeat to myself "I love my Depo I love my Depo I love my Depo." You people are freaking me out about an IUD. I'd rather have all my parts yanked out...

    I'm having a bad week with this after the discovery that I've worn through the thighs of two pairs of jeans not even a year after buying them, and the crotch seam of both pairs of my FITS breeches....

    Yes, both on adhesions on a suspensory and, similar to pologirl, on calcification on the bone that was rubbing against the suspensory. Worked a treat for both, confirmed by imaging.

    If it were unsafe for herbivores, the amount of baked goods that have gone into my horse (with or without the consent of whomever was holding the stuff at the time) would have dropped an elephant.

    He does not. I keep him in snow pads through the winter because with his old soft tissue injuries I don't want him walking around on snowball stilettos, but borium actually didn't seem to help him...
  21. What do these lameness symptoms make you think of?

    The vet's already been called.

    The patient/perpetrator, depending on exactly what he did: 20 y/o whose history in the right forelimb includes mild pedal osteitis, arthritis in fetlock and coffin...

    I just tuned in to see somebody on the ground and then a bay horse come into the ring looking lame behind.

    ETA I've figured out where we are on the order of go. Never mind. :)

    Also interested in what others post. I am of the opinion that fly spray works for 15 minutes and that's that, but I do use fly sprays that also work as tick repellants, and if there's a more natural...

    Yup. Forward is the cure for most sins! I've known only two animals who could successfully graze at a working trot. Both were ponies, so godspeed my friend.

    It won't hurt him any, but I'd try first clipping with the hair instead of against assuming the guard hairs aren't all over his body so that you don't lose what growth has come in.

    Incidentally,...
