    While antlers are the rage now... I won't give them to my dog. Google carnassial slab fractures and you'll see why. Dobermans are prodigious chewers so I've settled on Nylabones.

    I tried wood chips at a gate area. The chips were fresh from a chipper. A 3-4 inch layer, mix of hardwood & pine. After 6 months, the manure and wood chips made a nasty, stinky mess. Had to...

    Dobes are smart, you have to be sneaky. I trained mine that table stuff was verboten early. I'd leave some tasty morsel on the table edge and leave the room. I'd watch via a reflection in the...

    Just a plug for Dobes. I had a dog sitter that just loved to run with our Doberman in town. She said People would cross the street to avoid her & the dog. She liked that.

    If the trailer is 45 minutes away... Have you looked at it ? Who says the spindle is damaged ? That's something only known if taken apart. (unless it fell apart, but it's still...

    Since the BF's mech quality is not mentioned, I would use the professional trailer guy. Replacing the axle is a simple job, but easy to screw up too. You want the axles to be aligned to each other...

    A note of precaution. The bearing and spindle are shot. Take the tire off the bad spindle and tow it to the shop on three wheels. An empty trailer can do this easily. A bad bearing can lock up...

    "around the entire barn" leads me to believe is the issue. The overhang is spilling the water onto your "new" pad and not draining away. Screenings allow the water to migrate between the grains and...

    Many of the 2xxx series have a hydrostatic transmission. Likely yours is too. It is supposed to stop when the pedal is released. Ease up slowly on the pedal for a smooth stop. As for pulling...

    More important ... is when to order. I order during the Winter or early Spring. Don't want the vax to get warm in shipping. Then store in the fridge for use.

    Riding off alone doesn't not mean out of "YOUR" sight. You supervise the entire ride to protect "your" horse. When someone puts cash in your hand, then it's "their" horse.
