    LOL! I would have more, that's for sure, but not until we have our "dream farm". My husband and I will randomly say things like "maybe a small poodle next time" but we never mean it. We love our...

    If it hasn't been made clear enough yet, pay attention to Judy's post.

    That said, I would like to add to the list of reputable "rescues" the one that is my favorite - Final Furlong Racehorse...

    This is really good advice.

    OP, I can't add much other than to empathize with your crummy situation and to reemphasize the post above. Also, do recognize when you can't do more than you can do...

    Oh, what a great thread idea! I have too many things to share, but I will throw some random things down..

    I have loved cats since I was tiny. I thank my Dad for this, as he's a cat lover as...
  5. I am really, really sorry you lost your cat and...

    I am really, really sorry you lost your cat and that you had people trivialize it. It's the "soul", or whatever you want to call it, that matters. Not the packaging. When you loose a kindred...
  6. Leg Traps

    A few other posters also wondered "out loud" about the leg trap issue. I don't think it has been addressed on this thread so I did some very brief digging with the last five minutes I had before...

    ^This.

    ...and, about the farrier and the other cat hating examples that have been posted on this thread. I have to say that I am just stunned that there is apparently this general knowledge of...

    I am on my first break from horses since I was born with the horse problem, and have been regularly riding/owning from early childhood through college and into my late 20s. Life happens though, and...

    Well, if it gives you any reassurance, that is a very similar schedule to what I have had puppies on in the past. I had great success, and the two dogs I had who had a similar schedule grew into...

    You did the right thing. I lost a beloved cat 2.5 years ago (over all the years, the one animal who was my soul companion more than any other). I was 6 months pregnant, had noticed during the night...

    How can they NOT authenticate the photo? This is ridiculous. Are they even going to try? The pressure needs to be put on LE to do their job in this instance.

    I couldn't look at the link. I would be appalled if I learned this was done by a regular person. I just can't wrap my brain around the fact that this was a VETERINARIAN.

    I don't have much to...

    OP, my two cents:

    Litter boxes: I have a sensitive cat (male). We have had three cats (only two now, sadly). I realized I was wasting time with regular litter boxes. I went out and bought the...

    I just found this thread... what a saga, but then this update post today! Was this horse purchased then? Is he out of the clutches of the horrible seller?

    I've enjoyed this thread because the height thing drives me nuts. I haven't been in the market for a number of years now (thank goodness) but I had a heck of a time finding a horse that fit me. I...

    Jawa,
    I can answer yes to all of those questions - I hate ring riding and like to be able to ride anywhere and everywhere I can. I've had a lot of horses in my life as I've grown into and out of...

    Sidesaddle, thank you for the thoughtful reply. I know this is a very generalized question for a incredibly specific topic, but how long does a standard training period take? With the training my...

    Second, background:
