    YOu've probably tried them already, but I got my dog from Companion Pet Rescue, which is based in TN. I had a good experience with them. I believe their website is www.cprdogs.com

    Yuck. Snow makes everything so much. more. difficult!

    We were just on the edge of the big East coast storm -- and didn't get a single snowflake , for which I am still thanking my lucky stars!

    I can't add much to this thread; the only two thoughts I haven't yet seen expressed are 1) no boarding contract can cover EVERY eventuality, I would not expect a routine to be spelled out in a normal...

    Lack of communication is one thing, but a disinterested vibe is not necessarily a bad thing. Personally I think I give off this vibe because I know I can fill any vacancy I have, so I'm not...

    I lost twi in one day too (Shea's Mom) and it is pretty awful. One, however, was not a planned euthanasia, which I think is worse. You certainly have my thoughts with you OP -- it does take a lot of...

    Snowarider's advice is best by a mile on this thread.

    Abscesses -- GENERALLY! -- don't need a vet call, but (I don't want to look at the photo :-) ) yours sounds worse than average, and also...

    They are the gold standard, but they are not cheap. (I don't mean to imply they are super expensive, just that there are cheaper options). Being the gold standard, they almost certainly have a...

    Mine too. I have two that I'm feeding soaked hay cubes to, and the won't touch cubes I've soaked in the house overnight for morning feeding. Normally I use cold water, and leave them soaking for the...

    People say feeling their ears can tell you if they are hot or cold. I do do this, but I have no idea if cold ears = cold horse. (No one is shivering or acting cold).

    I board retired horses,...

    There have been a few threads on this, if you don't get tons of responses, have a look at them. One of my closest friends runs Horses North, and I've only ever heard great things about them. Holly...

    You don't say where you are, but I would always test for Lyme if there's a mystery problem with a horse.

    There are many ways to look at this, but the bottom line is that both you and your cousin...

    I used to rewaterproof all blankets and sheets, but I am not convinced it does anything. When a sheet/blanket is no longer waterproof, it does not become waterproof again if treated, at least in my...

    I would not worry about leaving them out with shelter. I would put a sheet or blanket on. I like to hang whole bale small hole hay nets inside the run-ins, so the hay is out of the weather.

    Farm. But as they are a specialist equine-related insurance agency, it probably would be worth getting in touch with them.

    I use Broadstone as the agency which gets me my insurance policy. Highly recommend them. My liability policy costs $500/year.

    Love your username, esp. with your explanation. What a powerful idea.

    I can't add much. I had a feral donkey arrive; we could not get within 10 feet of her. I did keep her in a small paddock...

    Oh stop. How do you know she isn't working with a good vet and farrier!!

    This is an A1 example of how COTH has gone downhill -- how is piling on the OP in any way helpful? First of all, in order...

    I understand you are frustrated, and that your post is more of a vent.

    Two observations -- you sound very unhappy with the care, so it is perhaps a blessing that you were asked to leave. (Side...

    Absolutely!

    I'm like you, and found my perfect mount in my kids' large pony. When they outgrew/lost interest in him, I started riding him. He was a saint (and I paid a lot for him, his...

    I immediately thought of "Everclear", but then I'm in the midst of launching a new vodka, so I've got alcohol on my mind!

    (No, not a serious suggestion -- it is a very low-rent kind of spirit!)
