    You're most welcome :)

    Yes, agree, there were some surprising findings/results - which illuminated how often the internal structures of the hoof are overlooked by vets and farriers - things that...
  3. Informative (though warning, long) lecture on feet from The Horse - lots of detail :)

    Definitely worth a watch if you have some spare time!

    Wooooot! Cheering and clapping (and crying) like a fool in my basement, by myself (DH is at work), I LOVE how he comes out of the start gate with his ears pricked and just looking for the track in...

    Ah yes, makes sense. It's a bit frustrating when this one bit of the bridle doesn't fit well enough to enable you to evaluate the benefits!

    This is exactly what *I* did; I found a cob/small horse size Micklem at a Dover tent sale for $85--a steal of a price :), but the jaw strap was too short--my 3 year old WB filly has a "pony head"...

    That Tummy Warmer is great; what a good invention!

    Apparently there are WAY more clothing options for Whippets than there were 13 years ago, when I first started looking ;)

    Yes, they are wonderful dogs; sweet, beautiful, sensitive, playful, hilarious :) I adore mine with a passion! And a nice bonus: they are like "living art" around the house...
