    Good friend of mine has always had drafts or draft crosses and says they need a lot of extra oil in the diet. That should take care of his flakey dry skin, and help with the weight gain.

    I hate flexi leashes. And the people that seem to insist on using them are the ones whose dogs have the crappiest behavior.

    Blaze orange, and the loudest sleigh bells you can find. Most hunters bell their dogs so as to not accidentally shoot them. That way they can hear you as well as see you (with the blaze orange).

    I'm in NJ.

    And that is a good idea about getting the right tree in the wintec and going
    from there. I ordered both the wide and extra wide ones. I'm not fond

    OP, you were far nicer about it than I would have been! I would have gone off on

    I'm in NJ. And I'd be willing to go anyplace I could drive to in a few hours.
