    Food toppings

    My little dogs eat a good kibble (soaked) that seems to work well for them. I add pumpkin in the AM and fish oil in the PM. Also have added meat or canned food.

    My question is what is the best...

    When you are home, I would check with the vet about what can be done for "comfort care" It may be that they can cauterize or surgically debulk the tumor so that he can be more comfortable. I would...

    As a boarder the bigger issue for me with varying feed/turn in times has been when it occurs when I am trying to work with my horse. So if I am grooming on crossties or riding in the attached indoor...

    It is that you were "livid" that many here don't understand. Certainly I would be concerned for her safety and nicely tell her not to do that for safety reasons. I wouldn't be "livid" though...

    If you will have horses coming and going after a couple of months or so, I would opt for individual turnout for them. It takes time for group dynamics to settle and there will always be upset and...

    I've got two small dogs that also eat beds. When they were young and I tried an ex pen in the bedroom they balded a section of the wall to wall carpet!

    They have Kongs and chew bones but just...

    Still scares me. The chain can easily snag a tooth. You can hope the collar comes off dog and/or tooth. Of course if you make it so loose it comes off, no ID on dog anyway. I would also worry about...

    Yeah, Im afraid that if you found something he couldn't chew off, he might strangle the dog trying or get his jaw caught in it. Another vote for no collar when they are alone together.

    How are the other dogs managed? Are they also crated? I'm wondering if one of them is stressing him. How are their interactions? Maybe try them closer or more separated... Is the dog room safe...

    I bet you are a bit spoiled from the Morgans! They can be sensitive yet sensible, tend to be easier to put together, and don't often have extravagant gaits that are tough to sit. There are some...

    Squirrels are Evil!

    Now I think squirrels are kinda cute with their fluffy tails. I can even get past their tendency to play Dodge-Car in the middle of the road. BUT, why, oh why must they insist on tormenting the...

    To me, pasture sound with no qualifications is a horse that can get up/down, eat, and walk/trot without pain and without daily medication. May not be even in gait, but not hurting.

    The pinto seems lacking in the backend. Being totally unhandled also decreases her value. Both of the others seem nice enough. Is the palomino the older one and is she broke? If you like the...

    If it is visible, I would take pictures with date stamps. (Without trespassing)
    Then I would do that every week or so. If the care is really that poor, it will show the problem. When the...
