    Dogs are predators. It's unreasonable for someone to expect an unleashed, unsupervised dog to not go after prey in its own territory.

    You wouldn't expect a cat not to kill a mouse would you?

    Sounds like a long toe may be the problem with this horse, especially since she's overreaching. It's common with horses like this to grow excess toe and not much heel. Over time more and more toe...

    I would consider the idea of a mobile home or prefab cabin if I was willing to entertain the idea of renting it out in the future. It could be a great supplementary source of income, a place a...

    Absolutely not. If the BO is willing to sacrifice the health and happiness of the horses for sheer laziness and aesthetics, it makes me wonder what else happens behind the scenes at that barn.

    Not my favorite music video but certainly not pedophilia (imo). I think if they weren't in flesh colored clothes or if maddie wasn't so young it would not be an issue at all.

    Thanks everyone. I've been able to keep down a small amount of liquids and food, hopefully this means things are improving slightly.

  10. Stomach virus...how do I feel less miserable.

    I am not someone who gets sick regularly, or ever really. Even when I had mono in high school it barely even effected me.

    But yesterday, somehow I ended up with a stomach virus and have been...

    Sounds like she needs more excercise. I would start by adding at least 1 hour of constant excercise a day and go from there.
    It could also be separation anxiety.
