    Good to hear! Hopefully more improvement will continue to follow.

    oh, they have! We have to watch where we leave chairs and stools out... Ironically the older one who shouldn't be in any shape to climb is the worst. We came back in from a garage project one day...

    With the corgis (whose motto is if we can reach it, we'll eat it), if we can't watch them, we crate them, even if we're only out the door for ten minutes. It's just too much stress, and they're too...

    I've seen Songbird in person--very, very fine filly. I will be greatly surprised if she doesn't lead the field or at least end up top three at the Oaks. I want to see Rachel's Valentina run again...

    This really strikes me as a staged coup for dominance--mainly because these are two females, and this is exactly why I try to avoid that scenario if I have the option to because bitches (even spayed)...

    You know, with the exception not being low-shedding, I would strongly recommend looking at Cardigan Welsh Corgis. They tend to be much quieter than the pems in my experience (none of the eight I've...

    I would start again with house training--positive, positive rewards for when she goes outside. And while you say she can't be crate trained, have you tried an xpen or confining her to a small area...

    Coming from someone who does apartment living, neutered males/spayed females are sometimes the only dogs allowed. I did not realize this until I moved to a college town. But it made me thankful I...

    She's clearly effective; keeps the horse together beautifully between fences. I don't like such a quick snapping upper body, but that really is a matter of preference--not just for the judge's eye...

    I had a horse that was prone to lose hair from leg, sweat, spurs, allergies, the sky falling, geese surprising her--everything. If your horse is tolerant of the whip, now would be a good time to...

    I think all dogs need to be crate trained--you just never know when you'll need to crate your dog for travel, being at the vet's, emergency evacuation, etc.

    I think it's important to train a dog...

    When he said he was like Donald Trump, that was really all I needed to know

    I think Maria is taking the high road as best as possible... understandably the twitter outbursts were probably not the best course, but she does appear now to have her act together.

    So Mattress Mac has a huge reputation for being a little off the beaten path. Here's a story I hadn't heard before. http://articles.latimes.com/2000/sep/29/sports/sp-28632

    He goes through...

    oh you beat me to it. Yes this is what I heard, too. I hope better owners come her way... Even if she was just a name on paper, she clearly did something right with the horse. I highly doubt the...

    So I heard through the grape vine that she was just contracted as a "paper trainer"--put on a wage and didn't receive any of the winnings, including the BC victory. She was hired because she was...

    there has got to be a much bigger story behind that... That is a fairly crappy move , though, regardless of motive...

    I, too, vastly prefer English saddles over French--but if you have to go French, I'd check out Voltaire. That's one I actually didn't mind.

    Is there anyway you can get a certified, unbiased...

    If I recall correctly, you can have travel insurance on the horse separate from just your average show horse insurance. So I'd guess he was insured for the flight over, but then I guess they were...

    I think what adhock mentions in the end about luck is a really important thing. I have known many driven, hard working individuals who did not have the resources to buy a horse--maybe they could for...

    Does she give any warning signs before she lights up? In my experience, regardless of whether the outburst is pain or behavior related, if you don't act the second you see the warning sign, you are...

    Not at all. By all means, if there was a rule change that say the rider along with the trainer and owner out for a drug offense, that's fine. Here's my problem: crass character calls on a young...

    Ok my minimal two cents worth:

    Shame on all of you judging Tori Colvin so harshly when you have never been in her shoes before. She is, at best, a PAWN in this whole thing. I have no doubt that BP...
