    8.5 isn't old, I opened thi threading thinking of my 14 year old lab. Your dog easily has another 5-7 years of life, and a mild case of heart worms is very fixable.

    I never trust calorie calculations for riding. You can't tell me riding a WP horse or an easy lesson horse burns even close to the calories a 45 minute upper level dressage rider would burn for...

    No. Button or sewn braids are fine for jumpers, but not for hunters.

    He's been jumping for 2 weeks... why the heck are you jumping him 3'????? Take it slow and let him figure out where his legs are before you start putting the fences up.

    Has he had a thorough dental exam? It might be worth having the vet take a good look in his mouth. Between being picky AND suspicious of food bowls, it makes me wonder if he has a painful tooth. ...

    Your dog probably dug up a grave, or something else dug it up and dropped it your yard. And no, there shouldn't be any health risk. My dog finds, eats and rolls in at least 3 dead things a week,...

    While I usually appreciate the more hands off approach of the mods here (on certain other forums, anything but puking rainbows and butterflies is frowned upon). But I think the forum would be a much...

    Equisis- I agree about the speed and optimum times! Even if they're not on the packet, PLEASE put them somewhere easy to find. On the event website if there is one would be great, or in the show...

    Do you really think it's in the rules for gymnasts to wear lots of makeup and sparkly outfits? No... but it's still expected.

    Out of curiosity, what breed is he? I can't imagine my lab or hound mix refusing anything (edible or not) They both eat their occasional raw treats like it's their first time eating in months. ...

    Does he wear a collar with tags? Some dogs don't like the clanging of the tags on bowls.

    Otherwise, if he's crate trained, I'd leave him in his crate (or a closed off room with no distractions)...

    Lots of kicking, or hitting with a heavy branch if available. Definitely do NOT try to pull or otherwise grab an aggressive dog! My dog has never been seriously (as in blood) attacked, but I have...

    She gets fed in a metal bowl (plus she eats so fast I'm not sure her nose ever touches the edge :lol:)

    No allergies, and she doesn't rub her nose.

    She did go to the vet today for her yearly...

    There are somewhere around 25 horses who live out 24/7 at the barn I board at. They are split into 3-5 horse groups and on pastures ranging from 5-15 acres of superb grazing, plus they get high...

    I'm hoping someone answers this, my gelding is doing the same thing. JLC- did you find cough free helped significantly?

    I agree with most of this post, but I do disagree that it's true for all english disciplines. In dressage, long manes aren't common, but they are totally acceptable as long as they are braided...

    They can start to feel tighter as they drop. I found it helped to pull them up while I was zipping so they didn't drop so far and wrinkle at the ankle

    I do have some sympathy for the owners. My first reaction is that it's ridiculous to not pull manes, it's just hair and long manes aren't appropriate at hunter shows. BUT... if I started riding in...

    I'm sad they're changing them, they're the first off the rack tall boot that has come even close to fitting me. 38 x-slim tall is the absolute perfect fit!

    IMO, the 'statistics' include the the last few generations and many different races. The average for white females below 40 years old is much shorter than 5'4". Of course, it doesn't help that I'm...

    He's gorgeous! Is he the half arabian? I think I remember the video you posted of him as a 2 year old. I really would like to see him in a few years, he certainly has the raw talent to get to FEI...

    How tall is he? It's hard to tell with those legs of his! Is that you or a trainer riding? Whoever that is, they are doing a fantastic job being soft and allowing him to move forward. I'd love to...

    6 months after I sold my first horse, the new owner accused my trainer of hiding that the horse had epilepsy. Apparently she had never seen a horse dreaming before :lol: Your horse is certainly...

    Seriously!? You are a very slight rider. You are not at all too big for your horse and he could take a much bigger (tall or heavy) rider.
