    Yes. Yes you do. You tell everyone that once the extent of the damage was determined, the decision was made to humanely euthanize rather than prolong the dog's suffering.

    I think it's ridiculous and I wouldn't continue to donate to this particular rescue.

    Honestly I wouldn't pay $16,000 to save my own dog. (Unless I was a millionaire).

    Agree with this 100%!! "Never let go" is just bad advice, plain and simple.

    I wouldn't be able to do it. If I have to sell the farm, I will also sell the horses and all my tack, and get out of horses completely.

    I was about to get out of horses just before I bought my...

    which worked even when the temp was close to -40F.

    I just have a small tank (about 40 gallons)...

    I don't actually believe touching them to check is a good indication. I go by body language/demeanor to make blanketing decisions. If they are happy looking and relaxed, they are fine. Any...

    I just finished watching the movie and I loved it! I didn't think they were rough with the horses.

    Last year I started blanketing my 18 year old QH when it went down to about -15C with wind/snow. She was cold! Then I pretty much kept a blanket on her for the rest of the winter (because the rest...

    I don't know, the fencing apparently "looked cheap", does that mean it needed painting? I don't even know what that means... I would assume if it was made of pallets or rusty barbed wire she would...

    THe other thing about boots vs wraps, is that if you find yourself in a dicey situation, it's much easier to get boots on/off quickly. If wraps get messed up/slip/loose/etc, you absolutely have to...

    Another reason to rethink lending out the trailer:

    If the mechanical failure caused an accident which led to the death of her horse, are you prepared to take responsibility for that?

    This is also a great example of why it's a bad idea to borrow stuff.

    Something can break that would have broken anyways, but you're there holding the bag. So now are you going to pay a $500 or...

    I remember hearing someone mention a couple of years ago, that some of the big commercial shippers actually do not allow the horses to be wrapped.

    I'm a bit taken aback by the comments about "that's the way I was raised" and "morals" and "upbringing".

    I think my parents did me a favour when they taught me not to let other people use my...

    Lol, it's about 20F here now and I wore my light coat out to throw hay. You get used to it. Yes really.

    Now that I don't have access to an indoor, I don't ride if it's colder than about 5F,...

    I think you should pay the bill, not ask her to contribute, and not lend out your stuff.

    If she needs a trailer 6 or 7 times a year, she needs her own trailer.

    When my horse lived out, I clipped the underside of his neck and most of his body, but left his belly alone.

    Lol, you must not be Canadian. My whole life (other than now that I'm at home) we have ridden all winter, including cantering and jumping lessons, without any problems. Our cut-off temp for lessons...

    I have changed my opinion on wrapping while trailering and I now believe leaving them 100% unwrapped (except maybe bell-boots) is the best way to do it.

    I would just plan on putting hay out in the shelter, and not worry too much about them. Make sure you have your own needs planned for (i.e. water and power and wine).

    We have 30cm of snow coming...
