    My cats did not accept PPs as a treat at first which is why I had to disguise it. I don't think even today she'd take a whole PP as a treat, but she doesn't mind some being stuck here or there. If...

    It's been a long time since I walked out of boots in frigid cold mud, but I remember it well. It is marginally better than keeping the boots, losing your balance and splatting on your fanny... and...

    Yes :) Think turtle. Legs up, dorsal down. No rocking back and forth possible. A real problem.

    Yes. Just make sure you know what is under the snow. A frozen puddle or layer of ice can be deadly.

    My horse has the most lovely canter in 6"-10" of snow. It is like riding on clouds. But it...

    If you tie you stirrups to the girth they are too low for my taste. You can't run them up and strap them in anyway to really secure them. If you really insist on using the saddle, I'd get some Dee...

    Having a long history of snow angels I can totally picture it too.

    And then when they lay there for any length of time their body heat will really make the snow hard and slick.

    So for those of you who have been experiencing this, what are the tips for horse/snow removal? I would imagine dig out along their back and then roll them? (it is fairly easy to roll a cast horse).

    Dude... there's something wrong with your mom.

    When we had to manage diets closely we went to wet food too for the same reason. Its really the only way you can manage them individually.

    He's beautiful. I wasn't aware that reds had a black variation.

    My boss often sees coyotes when he is out hunting. This year he saw one that was black and tan with some white markings.

    I have color preferences. Denying it would be like saying that I don't care what color my car/house/clothes are. We should not all have to drive white cars and ride brown horses.
