    He doesn't really travel crooked (any longer), he's just a wiggle worm. But he had some definite tendencies with his head and neck and severe sided-ness (he had no right lead when he came to me....

    Interestingly, I've had several body workers work on him (cranial-sacral, Masterson, straight massage) and they always conclude "he's in pretty good shape." I also do some natural-horsemanship style...

    Thoughts on a lameness??

    I have an older, stock-breed gelding of indeterminate background; probably late teens-early 20s. Not particularly troublesome conformation, shorter pasterns, somewhat upright, but not glaring. Not a...

    LOL, I've soaked them for 8 hours and still have the top ones hard and dry on the inside! That's starting with a mono-layer and covering almost twice as deep with water. Warm water does help. I'm not...

    Best way to soak hay cubes??

    Does anyone have a good method for soaking hay cubes? Alfalfa or alf/grass mix. It seems if I soak them in a bucket with more than one layer, the top ones are still hard inside, and the ones at the...

    Could be your SI, a normally low-motion joint, so when you knock it out of alignment it really, really gets angry with you.

    This is not about the handler's ego. She gets excited about her good dog, has seen others tug as reward, and just gets carried away.

    Thanks, Bicoastal, for some specific references. Will try to...

    Is swinging a tugger harmful?

    A person in my agility class has a very game young border collie, who--big surprise--loves to tug, and it is used as a reward. The owner gets pretty excited about how good this dog is, and when she...

    Are you in a position to have a pet? Adopt a shelter dog and find a group that trains for agility. Lots of the same skills as riding jumper courses, but much cheaper. You won't be ready to compete...

    Totally riding on Budweiser's coat tails. Good strategy, I suppose, in a cutthroat business, and seems to have worked for them in spades. But still a really, really tacky commercial.

    I traded my 1997 F250 last year on a 2012 F150 with the 5.0L engine, 3.73 rear axle. It tows my Hawk 2h BP/DR trailer every bit as well as the F250 did. In fact, I consider it to be the best towing...
