    Timely thread. I also have a hyperactive 2 year old that has grade 2 patella luxation, but on one side only. I have seen the leg pop out 3 times, and sometimes you can tell her gait isn't entirely...

    I've had a number of horses that were very consistent and completely free of vices, but not beginner safe.

    This is my thought as well. Just tell her that you're making her time slot available to someone else due to the 7 cancellations, and invite her to contact you as soon as kid is able to ride regularly...

    You want to ride a hunter, but the horse you own doesn't want to BE a hunter. Why isn't he for sale? What am I missing?

    OP, I'd have done exactly what you did. I think most of us would have.

    Exactly. As I mentioned in my earlier post, a GOOD spay/neuter marketing campaign might make some inroads, if it appeals to basic human nature at the lowest common denominator.

    Actually, she's not proposing educating pet owners. She's proposing forcing every dog and cat owner to spay/neuter unless they submit to licensing, home inspections, and can prove a good enough...

    For spay/neuter campaigns to be successful, people with a good understanding of human nature should organize and promote them. (Instead of animal rights folks).

    E-collars are BY FAR the most effective means of "de-crittering" a high drive dog. We use them to teach our hunting dogs not to chase deer or other non-target game that jump up in front of them and...

    Fine, but if that's the minimum standard of care, it must be universally enforced.

    A 3-strand braided lead is very strong, yet small and light enough to wad up and stuff in your jeans pocket. I like to put a small...
