    I am definitely an introvert, but if I'm on my "turf" -- which can either be physical places or a topic of discussion (or both) -- I can seem extroverted. In my case, my "turf" extends to psychology,...

    I feed whole flax to my Appy mare with skin/allergy issues and naturally fragile hooves and it's wrought pretty close to miracles on both fronts. I get it dirt cheap in bulk at the local WinCo. She...

    That's just awful, but I was so glad to see no one, human or animal, was hurt or lost. My best wishes to you!

    I would be unable to take in a companion horse because I board and can't afford above the one I have who is losing her sight. My finances are unlikely to change enough in the next several years so I...

    Interesting! I may have to try this with my mare. Because of various health issues -- her diminishing vision and my assortment of back/leg/foot/weight stuff -- we are not riding together and haven't...

    In your shoes, I'd get my horse out of there and wait to see what happens. Sometimes asking about a situation will buy you trouble, so just sit tight. If the individual who ran the boarding business...

    It can be hard for people who don't have a passion and deep connection with their animal companions to grasp just how deep and devastating the grief can be. I lost my beautiful Basenji girl, Ellie,...

    One that you did not list but is well-thought of by several horse folks I know is True Innocents Equine Rescue (TIER).
