    Not that it will help in the interim, but my father just had his hip replaced 6 weeks ago thanks to some sort of arthritis (likely a genetic issue - his brother had both his replaced in his 40's). He...

    Many people do not HAVE the messenger app for whatever reason (by choice), so they may be sending you messages from an actual computer, which might make it seem more like email? I have never...

    Based on the additional info, I wouldn't go adding and changing a bunch of stuff already, since you said you JUST upped the grain AND started putting her on grass. Unless she's in the danger zone, I...

    I don't know who the interview will be with specifically, but I assume it will be either the supervisor or someone above that. I am currently a government employee and the interview is with another...

    Phone interviews?

    I just scheduled a phone interview on Friday for a position I applied for last week. As thrilled as I am that I won't have to get dressed up and speak to a panel of interviewers (yet), I've never...

    Off the top of my head I know one facility in Aumsville that I believe has an opening. I want to say it's in the $350 range for full care, daily turnout, reliable, with knowledgeable people running...

    At least around here, these are billed as "Ride A Test" or "Ride and Review" versus just a regular schooling dressage show, which is what I took the OP to be asking about. The ride-a-test/review...

    I would not approach and expect to receive comments while mounted. Even at a schooling show, rides are scheduled according to time and you will likely be impeding the rider to follow you, taking up...

    Ok, different perspective here. You said it was your only day with nothing planned in two weeks - does that mean you've not had any time for him, either? Maybe he feels neglected?

    I'd go at it very simply.

    Dear SO:

    It has become clear to me that my house isn't big enough for the three of us (NO to option #1), and I am not in a position to make a joint purchase right...

    My dosage for a horse that weighs 680kg (1500lb) is just over 8cc (8.16), which would give me 6 doses out of a 50mL bottle. However, 4 of those would be given in the first 4 weeks as a loading dose,...

    Don't forget the *un*-loading part. Nothing makes me batty like a horse that is in a hurry to get out - horsie should be able to stand patiently in his spot until asked to move.

    Bonus points if he...

    I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere on COTH yet, but there have been at least 4-5 cases confirmed in OR as well in the last few weeks. At least one is neuro. Lots of confusion and differing opinions...

    So she can point her toes - but, what is the hind end doing? Often on threads about the top horses and up-and-coming horses, we get into the argument where someone says "ooooh, look at the gorgeous...

    Most feed stores should carry them - I just grabbed a handful when I was there last week, they are usually near the vetwrap and other first aid type supplies. I needed 12cc syringes because of my...

    It's not hard, assuming your horse is good with needles. If you have someone around that can show you/instruct you the first time that is experienced (like a vet, trainer, BM, etc.) that would be...

    Personally? From a time/money standpoint, second leaser or no second leaser, I'd look for a reasonably talented horse closer to home. One that you can half or even full lease, spend 5+ days a week...

    sophie,

    I just had a bottle shipped last week and it does not expire til 2018; definitely check the date before you toss it. The expiration is pretty small, it took me a minute to see it.

    My understanding based on OP's further explanation is that horse is 21 years old, schooling ~3' (Novice) on ZERO maintenance (oral supp's don't really count, IMO) and comes out of the stall a little...

    Agree with this. Even "professionals" with good reputations seem to treat leased horses as disposable, even the older packer-types. I would not lease again unless it was to a barn run by a...

    Start with asking the owner WHY the horse is in eggbars and pads. If the owner doesn't know, request that they ask the farrier. If the farrier doesn't know, move on. Is it "heel soreness"? Proceed...

    JBRP and Jleegriffith, I hope you didn't take my post the wrong way. The "sale barn" I mentioned gives me pause NOT because of the price tags, even if the market here does not support them, but...

    I haven't seen this mentioned yet... I've been on the patch - Ortho-Evra, now the generic Xulane - for around 5 years now. Zero side effects, unless you count the fact that it's a little itchy once...

    JBRP is the type of re-seller you want to find. Are you sure you're not happening upon one of the many cheap horse trader types that buy prospects, slap a big price tag on and 'inflate' the horse's...
