    So in the pre-Obamacare healthcare situation, how would one of limited means (i.e., not supported by their parents or a trust fund or the like) go about becoming something like a professional horse...

    I also have a personal story about why this is so important, although it happened to my mom, not me.

    She was laid off of her job in 2009 and after looking for a while, opted to retire (she was 63...
  4. OP your post is really eerie for me to read...

    OP your post is really eerie for me to read because my horse's history sounds very very similar. I am supposed to be talking to my vet today about starting Estrone for locking stifles, but now I'm...

    Thanks everyone! I have tried conditioning and it did help a bit but he still catches. Do you think it might help with the soreness / short-striding? I'm hoping that if I break the cycle with the...

    External parasite - what is it??

    One of my horses gets some sort of external parasite every summer that I've never seen before on any other horse. It has followed us from at least two barns. It looks like dirt, but it doesn't brush...

    I don't think 1-2 lessons per month is that bad with all your other obligations. Would it help you feel like you're progressing more if you had more practice time in between? If I were you I would...

    You guys seriously rock! I was so pissed off about this and just dreading this vacation, and I have realized after reading this that there is no reason to play into this drama, and now I can even...

    So I apologize for dredging this up again, but I am so frustrated with this situation. I need advice or maybe just moral support :) and thought I'd update anyone who cares :)

    Thank you everyone who replied. I really appreciate it! We will definitely be leaving our dog at home, and will probably see if we can diplomatically ask him to do the same. But even if he does...

    Vacation1 - I think you totally nailed it:

    "And then your husband (if I'm reading this right) dropped the ball by tossing the choice back to him."

    Hubby and I talked last night and this is...

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I really appreciate it.

    To answer those who have asked about why I should be able to have my dog and he not bring his, we have been planning this trip since last...

    Simkie - that won't be possible unfortunately. He lives a long distance away from us. He's driving 1.5 days just to get to the cabin.

    Thanks for the replies. It probably seems like a stupid...

    OK just saw other replies. So I am not crazy for thinking this is a bad idea.

    What about having two strange dogs around my kids (if we left our dog at home)?
  16. I would be happy to do that but I think he has...

    I would be happy to do that but I think he has decided to bring his dogs (no negotiating). Even if I left my dog at home I would still be nervous about his dogs being around my kids since I don't...
  17. Am I overreacting (dog aggressive dog + two new dogs + small children)?

    My husband's family has a small cabin that we visit every summer for a week. We have a rescue dog and two kids (one almost three and one 5 month old baby). Our dog is fearful of other dogs, and has...
  18. DT Article - The ABCs of Dressage - saddle too far forward in pics?

    I am not trying to bash anyone just wondering if anyone else noticed this? It looked like the saddle was too far forward in the pics with that article (starts on page 54 in the May Dressage Today...

    My horse's stifle rads were clean but the bone scan lit up on his patella. Apparently that is unusual (I think usually another part of the joint lights up or something), and the vets seemed unsure...

    Is it worse when the RH is on the outside of a circle? That would suggest stifle to me.

    Could you try the blocks now or do you think he would be naughty about it?

    Would it be too soon to...

    You might want to look at the Honda Fit too. You can fit an amazing amount of stuff in this car (hence the name I guess). I have one and drive at least 90 miles per day and get about 36 mpg. It's a...

    I tried to ride two weeks post-baby and it was quite uncomfortable. I had a second degree tear which was not bad to recover from but it was just too much pressure on that area. I think I felt...

    I think he's about 8. He has been known to go into other people!s houses and stuff without knocking. He seems a bit off but it could be more nurture than nature. I saw him with the pellet gun a few...

    Neighbor kid's little dog came up to my fenced in yard and started barking at my dog through the fence. Then kid comes over with pellet gun and starts yelling at my dog to stop barking at his dog,...

    It would be great to have a washer/dryer for washing horse laundry.

    What kind of fencing are you thinking of putting in? I boarded at a high-end place for a while that had that "plastic" type...
