    That "never run to a wreck" advice is something my old-time horseman uncle taught me. Take the time to think through the situation, get what you need to deal with it, and WALK if possible. There are...

    Just my own personal experience but my trainer has one of his babies, and we are just now getting into putting him to work (he's 3 now). THE steadiest baby I've ever been around - I've handled him...

    Can you arrange for one of the trainers to give he and his friends a "guided" tour? That might satisfy them while still keeping the animals supervised. If not, then I would say no.

    Ah yes, open window season for me means possums and raccoons meandering through the yard, and my small dog going ballistic. He was much better when I put our bed on the ground (he can't see out the...

    Mine both eat kibble, with a tiny bit of warm water. The puppy wouldn't eat it at first so I put decreasing amounts of the crap wet food she'd been eating at the shelter over it to wean her into...

    I guess my daughter is lucky that none of the dogs she's tested have killed anyone :P. They do temperament test at her shelter (using many of the listed techniques) as well as testing them with...

    What mommy peanut said, seems to be the trend among my friends. A lot of us are still feeding TOTW (aka ground glass shavings) but I do mix it up with a bit of raw (frozen, at least) and other...

    FWIW, if I suspect a horse has colic, I do vitals first, call the vet 2nd, and if i don't think anything is actually going on I still do at least one night check. I withdraw feed (which is not good...

    NICE! I agree about the meaning of "the look." My pom cross has a "Santa's Little Helper" t-shirt, and an Elf costume, but your angel costume is MUCH nicer :)

    In general, that tends to be the way young cowboys are, so I wasn't surprised by that part, LL. In fact I felt like they were actually much kinder than most of the cowboys that I've been related to...

    In this case, especially, because I totally get the worry and sympathize with your feelings, I would just research carefully and take her to the best vet in your area. I had to have my chi bitch...

    I vote blue tick as well, but definitely a cross, having grown up with them (my dad was a breeder). Hmm, now I miss Belle :P

    That facility probably might be a good fit - the weather can affect turnout there but they take EXCELLENT care of the horses (I know - I work there when the regular barn manager goes on vacation). ...

    I dunno, but that would motivate me to write to the darned author! I've done that for lesser things that bothered me (as an author myself I understand putting upsetting things in for character...

    I am PM'ing you someone NOT to go to. And yes, Janet is a good friend of mine and a fellow surfer LOL :). She is a good event trainer - I train with Christie down in Grant, but I'm from that area...

    I have done this, but mostly with young horses occasionally to straighten them - for brief periods, though, and then I go back to the other diagonal for the corner.

    One issue is that typically,...

    One of mine LOVES to be petted - has not yet met a person she doesn't love. And she looks like a furry stuffed toy. I encourage people to pet her appropriately - she is young and needs the...
