    I had a friend that sent a bitch to a 3rd party (a friend of the stud owners) for breeding with similarly low numbers; the stud told them "nope" but they tried to breed anyway; no tie twice, did...

    Very likely because the possums come into the barn and eat the cat food.
  3. Totally different reason than EPM. I have no...

    Totally different reason than EPM. I have no issue with killing animals that are a threat to your chickens.



    LOL I don't really care how you remove your possums. I'm not making any...

    Yes, there is a danger.

    But the point is - unless you sit outside 24/7 with your night goggles and shotgun, you can't protect your horses from opossums. So, why kill any of them?

    Secure your...

    My repro vet told me a story about her own personal experience like this - she said she thought that stress may have contributed. In her case, she was breeding her own bitch but she had to travel...

    According to the US Opossum Society:
    Any mammal can get rabies. However, the chance of rabies in an opossum is EXTREMELY RARE. This may have something to do with the opossum’s low body temperature...
  7. I'm sure they do. How many sleep in your hay...

    I'm sure they do. How many sleep in your hay barn, though, that you never see? If you shoot one, are you missing 25 others that wander through during the year? In which case...does it really help...

    So, not feeding grain in a pasture seems to be a far better method of controlling EPM than trying to shoot the one or two possums you might actually see in your pasture (versus the 25 that you never...
  9. Well, they are a threat. It would be...

    Well, they are a threat.

    It would be interesting to do some sort of opossum density count and compare it to EPM transmission, though. I suspect they move in and out of our pastures all the...

    That would not be one of my first concerns. There are thousands of miles of natural gas pipeline in the US. I don't imagine that an empty field in upstate NY is one of the primary terrorist targets...

    This would be my recommendation. I was surprised to hear my farrier tell me that the horse I thought was the "easy one" to trim would be the last one he would have me learn in, were I ever...

    My farm has a pipeline running through it, and it's quite close. However, I live near the Capital, so if you want a farm and also want to be able to easily commute to downtown, you're probably near...

    Where do you live? There are some areas of the country that really have no incidence of heartworm, but not many. But even if not, maybe it's worth using a heartworm product for the deworming...

    My nearly 15 year old dog has only been to the vet for an "emergency" once in his life - a severe reaction to a bee sting. Otherwise...*knocking on wood*...nothing.

    My other 3 dogs...well, they...

    I almost never "deworm" my adult dogs unless I see an issue like tapeworms visible in their stool. And mine routinely eat rodents as well. I think deworming dogs every 8 weeks is overkill....what...

    OK, then yes, I'd address feed.

    I'd probably pull her off everything but the grass hay for the moment...maybe for a week or so...and see if her behavior changes. Some horses don't tolerate...

    I agree that giardia could be an issue.

    I don't know that there is any perfect food out there; all dogs are different. I would not be against trying a meat/rice food if the main issue is soft...

    Does this mean that she's in her stall for the rest of the day?

    Because if so - that's your real problem.

    If not, I don't fully understand "she is going out twice a day" - meaning she needs...

    I don't think anyone argues that 24/7 turnout is the problem, it's the type of grass. And probably the size of the pasture. My horses have only 4 acres, but it provides a lot of grass, although...

    It also depends on the breeder and the area. I know of breeders that refuse to charge as much as others do because it eliminates some very good homes (e.g. $800 v. $1000 or $1200 is a big jump for...

    I know that you don't feel that way; but even $1000 for a GCH or top performance prospect is kind of crazy low.

    Training and competing is really expensive; conformation is smaller in comparison,...

    Exactly. I'd be raising holy hell if my BO let a horse live in those conditions. Plus I'd probably move my horse anyway.

    I'd be calling AC on the BO.

    Sad story.

    I do wonder what would make this person buy this particular puppy, however. In general - I support good purebred breeders and also support rescue - and it is no reason to demand her...

    I think this applies with hay as well. I recall my vet saying once that there had been some study done with regard to hay analysis and that many horses were being fed hay that was inappropriate - I...

    Exactly.

    I have five equines - 1 TB, 1 APHA, 1 DWB, 1 Cushings pony or giant mini, and one mini. The only one that can be on my pasture without limit is my TB - and I have photo evidence of her...
