    Bananas are one of the three foods that Tip won't eat.

    (Robin's eggs are not on that list. He has eaten those. And the nest.)

    I think I'm going to go see how many Fig Newtons I can get for $20...

    This is good information, thank you! I am curious about how the dial fit and liner might combine to good effect (or not) on my weird head. If the dial and padding come down closer to the nape of my...

    They may not offer any substantial support, but they do have mild effects against fluid retention and some impact protection.

    If I want support, I use Saratoga bandages.

    I did not know that- it's been a very long time since I fed anything with yucca in it. My guy doesn't have Cushings, but is leptin resistant, and I treat him as though he were also IR because neither...
  5. Anyone have a Troxel ES helmet? Fit?

    My helmet is coming up on its expiration date within the next several months. I am a tough fit for helmets because my head is asymmetrical- I was dropped on my head as a child! I'm midway between...

    I won't board at a farm that won't allow my choice of professional to treat my horse. I ensure that I have this information up front before considering a barn seriously. I understand that some farms...

    Yes, we have these searches saved at Petfinder, etc. Ismo isn't right for us, but he is darling (do you need another dog, LHU? :) He is closer to you!) Brazen is new since the last time I've looked,...

    I trace-clipped mine in November. He looks like a cross between a yak, a Schnauzer, and a Shetland Pony gone feral. He's losing some guard hairs, but not much more than that. My hands are itching for...

    Mostly because I've found it cheaper in the past to get horse treats in bulk than to get the equivalent size of (for example) Fig Newtons in bulk- although we just joined Costco today, so I'll have...
  10. Soft, easy-to-chew treats for older teeth

    In his venerable age, Tip has started to have a little trouble chewing his current favorite treat, Manna-Pro Apple Wafers. We go through a lot of horse cookies for carrot stretches and other valuable...

    Sir Bartholomew Solo of the Double-Barrelled Last Name- so called because there can be no doubt that he definitely shot first- rejects the idea of cuddling being appropriate, and if you disagree and...

    If you would be so kind, that would be wonderful! Thank you so much!

    I tried this one on. I have found that the thinner tech fabrics tend to drape rather than hold a tailored line, and that if they pull on the body at all, anywhere, the overall effect ends up being...

    I had that thought and just assumed that she would have to be clipped to be kept comfortable. Here in Baltimore doing so might interfere with her winter coat, which she would need, but not...

    We are looking for a small Spitz type, preferably Finnish Lapphund-ish or Swedish Vallhund-ish- two breeds boyfriend has admired from afar for awhile and also really likes in terms of temperament. He...

    My horse wears his bells 12 hours of the day in turnout, but his favorite pastimes include chewing the velcro off and taking the bells off with his teeth. I have had great luck with Centaur bell...

    Unfortunately, after several days of no communication, which prompted a "Hey, still interested" email from us last night, this morning we received a terse message informing us that they would not...

    We both have old injuries which make driving long distances painful, but he recently reinjured his (and is back in PT) while I can manage mine well enough not to risk needing PT myself. He put his...

    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    I believe very strongly in honoring the spirit of the service dog policies and although the dog may indeed have a superb temperament she is not certified as a...

    Your kids look happy as clams out there with their massive roll of hay! Glad you were able to make it.

    I haven't had problems with under-layers staying put on a stalled horse. If you have one who's inclined to rampage around in turnout, especially if he is built asymmetrically, he might shift his...

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Coast 2 Coast Pet Transport might be an option if the rescue is willing to work with us. I appreciate that they're even considering us- I imagine rescues in Florida...

    Now this is interesting! Thank you for sharing- it may be an option.

    We will be down in Florida over my boyfriend's birthday, and it will be primarily "his dog" (in the same way that our cat is...
  24. Tell me about traveling with dogs too big to fly (pet transport companies?)

    We are exploring the possibility of returning from our vacation in Florida with a dog, assuming that all of the logistics check out, the rescue approves our application (and the plan,) and, most of...

    An IV or IM injection- something like Legend or Adequan- or an intra-articular injection, like his hocks, coffins, or stifles? If you're doing a lot of joints, it's worth a conversation with your...
