    The only thing that works well on our clothing in hard water is Wisk with Oxyclean in it. Then everything comes out nice, even on the cold water setting. The other whiz-bang detergents don't do much...

    I retire my own, so I am pretty familiar with the issues involved. I have a question: did you test for Cushings Disease? Because unless it is involved, things don't seem to be adding up here to me. ...

    I'm already panicking. I have had Lyme, and it is miserable. This is the last thing we need. You have to be bitten to actually get this, so if your mom takes good preventative clothing/spray...

    The first thing I would suggest doing, in your own best interest, is to put some liability insurance on this horse before leasing him to anyone. He may be fine, but if something goes wrong you don't...
