    If the seller hasn't made any effort to counter-offer or dicker, I'd suspect that she doesn't see this is as a perfect fit... for whatever reason. There's one sure way to find out, though -- have...

    I'm not a bigfan of elevated feeders except where a disability makes them necessary. Bloat studies aside, eating from ground level is just a more natural feeding position.

    Agreed, but when this fails, the results could be very bad. I've had to run off loose dogs from our property over the years, and it's worked great in every case but one. Most dogs are not at all...

    I don't think they're dropped... yet. What I see is youngster with very long, very sloping pasterns that will be prone to dropping as he fills out and becomes heavier, and carries a heavier rider....

    Life insurance (whether term or whole) only pays if you die. Disability only pays if you are disabled. Short term disability is income replacement for the short term (usually less than 6 months)....

    The #1 thing you need to worry about is disability. If you are under age 50 and are reasonably healthy, the odds of you dying are extremely small.

    PUPPEH!! :D
