    I eat a kind of paleo/low carb hybrid diet (so I understand I eat differently than you). I personally believe that ALL sugar, in *whatever* form is very bad for you. When added sweetness is needed,...

    I don't know if this is Paleo as it has a bit of cream in it, but these are really good, really easy, and keep me full (though, maybe not for 6 hours -- pretty much nothing keeps me full for 6...

    I don't think anyone should be answering this question on a public forum, especially those of you who say you keep the car keys in the ignition or the door unlocked. I've seen the coth sleuths...

    If selling doesn't work out, you could give her away to a good home. I've had a lot of luck with my own horse (I leased out) and my trainer's horses (she placed) on our regional Pony Club email...

    We wrote at the same time. Exactly this! You clearly need support and advice from someone knowledgeable who sees the horse in person. A good veterinarian, and a good barn manager are exactly what...

    I don't understand this. Doesn't he have Lyme? If he does, then he needs way more than 7 - 10 days of doxy. If he has Lyme, and that might be why he dropped weight, I'd treat a bit more...

    I've never had doxy cause sun sensitivity in horses (and the horses here are out 24/7). Also, I wait to give probiotics until the antibiotics are over, because as you are putting them into your...

    What's with all the explanations??! You don't need to give one.

    this is what I would say:

    Nobody else in my family eats gluten free (or low carb, for that matter). (I have a husband and 2 sons at home). I just eat separate meals, or the no-grain version of theirs -- burger w/o the bun...
