    IMO, the white foot thing stems from the fact that it's easier to see bruises and other issues on white hooves, not because they actually get them more often.

    When I was working at a summer camp...

    I will only if it's another aisle seat. I'm very claustrophobic and window/middle really set that off.

    IMO, both sides made mistakes here.

    The OP:
    -In her enthusiasm and excitement, she didn't read between the lines on the emails. More experienced horsepeople probably would have seen the whole...

    Hopefully everything is fine. Depending on where you are, are there stinkbugs? The wake up in the spring and I know my dog will eat them if he gets the chance. If he eats them, he throws up. Just...

    Having had a cat with diabetes (which is expensive and time-consuming to treat correctly with daily monitoring) and one with a urinary blockage that required surgery, both of which would likely have...

    Agreed that it's no big deal. I work at a barn; we soak feed for anyone who needs it soaked. There is no extra charge. We put the feed in and add water, then turn the horses in. By the time we...

    I'd have a full-time job as a journalist in my sport with a major outlet, traveling 30 weeks a year and writing about the sport.

    Though after almost 4 years of unemployment, a full-time job with...

    Many senior feeds are complete feeds, meaning they can make up the entire diet. Not sure about the Purina, but if it is, it should have recommended amounts to feed as a complete feed, and you can...

    Recall is probably the toughest to train...BUT, the primary problem with the dog in the OP was not recall, but leash manners. Hitting the end of the leash, ever, is a training problem. A properly...

    I agree with switching him to just the Pro Force Fiber. I've had great luck with it for maintaining weight. My horse was on the TC Complete for a while and it made him NUTS. Changed him to Tribute...

    Yes; separating them at mealtimes and no food in between is the way to go. I have three: one eats in the kitchen, one in the bathroom, one in the bedroom. They know mealtime and go to their...

    Mine sits on me, and if that doesn't work she sticks her tongue in my ear. Gross and effective.

    What's the cat's diet? Switching to a canned-ONLY diet is a huge key to handling these issues. I have one who had chronic UTI's and a full blockage. He was on a prescription wet food for a while...

    Is the trailer well-bedded with shavings? For many horses, a little slip on the mat while loading can be all it takes for them to decide they don't really want to step up there after all.

    I love the smell of coffee but don't like the taste unless it has enough sugar and milk in it to pretty much negate the coffee.

    The small I can't stand? Hard-boiled eggs. I don't really like eggs...

    Night blindness and ERU are two totally different conditions, though both are common in Appaloosas. Night blindness is genetic and seemingly tied to the leopard complex. Appaloosas are something...

    The storylines can be a bit of a stretch and it can be a little cheesy, but I love The Big Valley. I have them on DVD and indulge in a little binge once in a while...

    My thoughts exactly. Though if someone's dogs attacked my horse and I found them loose and heading for my horse again, I wouldn't wait for them to attack him again. But I wouldn't be bragging about...

    Peanut butter, lettuce, and mayo sandwiches, with or without bacon.

    OK, my brain must be somewhere else entirely. Took me a couple minutes of wondering why anyone would steal boards from a barn (not to mention how that would go unnoticed) to figure out what OP was...

    Something to think about (coming from someone who just made the same decision and let my old boy go): Horses live in the "right now." They don't think about, "well, it might feel better in a few...
