    Unff, that's a good question but that's not exactly how LGDs work.

    First of all, IME, LGDs are more territorial than protective (though they are protective to some extent). They set up a...

    First of all, I think it is very unlikely that some other animal hurt the llama.

    Secondly, I think it was very reasonable that the OP left an LGD that she had for a month and had been well...

    I just wanted to add that when our llama was injured I made a lot of phone calls looking for a vet that would euthanize him. More than one other vet said no. I called another equine veterinary...

    FatCat, I'm so sorry for what you went through. We raise sheep and use llamas and livestock guardian dogs and have had similar struggles finding vets who are willing to care for llamas.

    I love the idea of subsidizing clinics in all of the zones. Educational opportunities with interesting/well known clinicians would appeal to a very broad base. My local hunter/jumper organization...

    The way microchips work is that they have a number on them that shows up when that chip is scanned--that number stays the same for the life of the chip.

    I'm another person on the microchip...

    I have a mare that tends to get a little strong and want to put her head down and curl up a little when she is feeling fresh, the best bits for her have included a port, which seem to encourage her...

    The prize list should list what classes are included in each division, however for many divisions the classes are pretty similar. For example, for a hunter division might be listed as Adult Amateur...

    My advice would be to take your time and enjoy saddle shopping. Try saddles from different brands to get a general feel of what you like and get a sense of which brands have a good rep in your area....

    The hunter pad is fairly invisible under a saddle. The edges line up with (or are within) the edges of the fitted pad. It's perfect for showing as the pad is very discreet. That having been said, I...

    I think you made the right choice. The person undertaking the trial needs to have a clear understanding that if they "break it" they "buy it." Offering a trial--especially a 30 day trial--is very...

    I'm a dog lover but very sensitive about their place at horse events. I'm glad the USEA is getting stricter about this. I was right there when the spectator's dog ran in front of Buck at Rolex. FWIW,...

    I use a Thinline half pad with front shims on one horse, it's very stable and seems very comfortable for him. My horse is shaped very similarly to ToTheNines' and the Thinline has worked well. I have...

    I think it really depends on your horse and your saddle. I have a sensitive mare and I feel that using an Ogilvy gives me a "softer" connection with her when using my seat. Her saddle fits very well...

    Yes, dress boots are definitely making a comeback. Even if they weren't, as ybiaw pointed out the zippers make laces unnecessary anyway. Dress boots make a very elegant and classic appearance, as...

    It's fascinating to look at other breeds/disciplines and see what life is like in other areas of the horse world. I'm sure there must be some valid reasons that a H/J show costs exponentially more...

    I agree with others that there really isn't a reason to join the USEF unless you are showing at rated shows. I would love to support the USEF, but I can't feel good about it the way things are now. I...

    I have to agree that the butter soft boots just aren't made for the hunt field. I can't stand super stiff pull on dress boots, so I mainly hunt in a pair of Ariat Bromont tall winter boots. They are...
