    Maybe I'm missing something, but does she have to show the actual, original, papers in person to somebody? Couldn't you send her the jockey club number or maybe a bad quality image taken with your...

    I've never lived in Florida in winter (or ever!) but here in the midwest, we see a lot of weather-related changes in feet during the winter. If I hadn't known you were in Florida, I would have...

    Core strength! core strength! Here's why, and here's what I'd do if you were my student. I'd have you ride without stirrups for as long as you need to, and I'd encourage you to do anything...

    Interesting digression: I know several families who got one "for" a child with a disability - not that the child herself was able to really use it (maybe 911) but it traveled with her in a backpack...

    Tell them you know the transition to having horses at home is going to be a big one, for everyone, and you'd like them to work out the kinks before they bring your horse home, too. Emphasize that...

    In the summer, I sometimes bike to work, which means packing indoor clothes in my backpack and biking in a tshirt or tank top and shorts. We had a state staff meeting and I arrived in plenty of time...

    We had the chest and butt bars lowered, and the butt bars moved forward, for my 14.1 Arab. The trailer we bought was designed for elephants, I think. He rides much better and safer and I worry a...

    Thanks, all. I had hoped to spend some time with her today but it will have to be tomorrow, so no video. Short story, there is an old issue with the right hind (several years ago), an issue with...

    Thanks everyone, especially findeight. I can fill in some details later but be assured, there have already been vet calls and will be more, I'm sure. I was trying to suss out the normal gait...

    It's been common around here for almost 10 years, I bet. I know when I bought my last horse, which was in 2007, it wasn't the first year they did them. I LOVE getting them electronically, too, so I...
  11. Lameness & movement experts... Today's question

    Here's one for the people who understand gaits and movement. If a horse looks normally sound at the walk, and at the trot, and on their right lead, but incredibly awkward and "oh, wow" lame on the...

    One of our cats did this. Thank goodness it was summer and the windows were open. Love the idea of the scat mat... Wish it would work with humans!

    I'm careful NOT to fall asleep on the couch and then get up and go to bed later. I do find that a small, high carb snack (handful of pretzels or saltines) right before I brush my teeth does help...

    Slide it into your half chap. A little hard to get it out quickly, but it stays put even during trail rides and jumping.

    This is a totally random thought, but it sounds like you're willing to go the extra mile for this puppy. What about doing a little research on how very early intervention is done with children who...

    I agree with those who say you can turn this in to a positive, of sorts, if you handle it the right way. Make a big deal out of "under new management" and without seeming over-the-top crazy, work...

    I think they mainly eat the babies. So don't breed her! Sounds like she needs a friend, though. Maybe someone locally has one that's already tame and isn't getting along with its herd for some...

    Cats are weird. They seem to fall apart fast, and dramatically!

    One other thing to put in the back of your mind if you have an otherwise healthy cat who suddenly seems to be sick is whether he...

    If you have the vet coming out anyway, I'm sure you'll talk about teeth and worming and all that. It does seem like there's a point when they turn a corner and the easy keepers turn into hard(er)...

    You've probably done this already, but sit down with a piece of paper and a pen and remove all thoughts that this student has any sort of disability or had any accommodation. Remove all thoughts of...

    I think it makes a big difference where you live and what the prevailing culture is about dog care. If you're in an area with lots of unvaccinated animals and strays, the risk would be greater. ...
