  1. Past hour
  2. Amazon, but then I found them MUCH cheaper at eBay.
  3. How many minis are there, Queen?
  4. Today
  5. He is lovely and I can't wait to meet him. *whispers to myself: it is only another month, you can do it!* Pink, I remember you talking about the mud in front of your barn before, now I can see the issue and I wonder how you manage in the winter. If I may suggest, I'd build something like a pole-roof to extend over their stall entrances and allow for rain/snow-free access. You could also kind of "mare motel" it by fencing along the sides and having a gate at the end of the lean-to roof for each stall section. Then even on days they'd need to be up, they could still access a little bit outdoors of their stall w/out a huge muddy or snowy mess, other than a pee spot. I'd also modify the fencing to attach to their stall runs so you could allow them free-access as they wish during the day - but I'm all about making things easy and my climate is very different from what you have to deal with.
  6. As long as that grain isn't corn.
  7. I've tried Science Diet but the dogs wouldn't eat it. I feed ProPlan chicken and rice. They do real well on and maintain a healthy weight. I believe dogs need a balance of meat and grain.
  8. Just find a good chicken and rice food with no coloring.
  9. Well I was pretty happy with myself last night. The evening Trisha passed away I had haltered June and was working on halter breaking her, which wasnt going well...at all. I finally just gave up that evening. She is the mini that was born in June to the mare that didnt want us touching her. Well, June is a pretty little thing and lets us pet her little curious butt all over. So, while I had a couple cowgirls to help me last night...on went the halter. With the help of a butt rope June managed to get the hang of the ol halter and leading thing and as luck (with some sweat) would have it, we managed to go for a nice walk around the pond. Zarinna led Margaritas mom, Emmy led Magarita and I led June. I wish I had a good pic for you but it was dark by the time we got done. Ill have to get one Thursday.
  10. My husband calls him, Pistol, all the time now, so, I guess that's it. It sounds strange to me, but, I'll get used to it, I suppose. My vet clinic sells Science Diet foods, I have mixed feelings about it, I had always thought, it was a good food, until I read some reviews, a lot were good, but, there were also some not so good ones......but, if the vet recommends a science diet food and, the diarrhea clears up, science diet is what I'll buy.
  11. The breeder was feeding Purina puppy chow. I strongly believe he had the diarrhea when we took him, he smelled, I mean, like a puppy who had diarrhea and, had gotten it on him..... stepped through it...... I wasn't given some to mix. The paperwork I got, states he was dewormed with, Fenbendozole, which is for hook and, round worms, if memory serves.......this, 'document' wasn't from a vet, there's no clinic or, name of a vet, on it, it's a paper the breeder made up. I did think about putting plain yogurt in with the food, or, canned pumpkin..... but, wouldn't you know it, I didn't have any..... I thought I had some yogurt left, because I eat it with fruit, but, I didn't. I have a stool sample ready to take to the vet. I've wondered about the grain free foods, so many of them started suddenly popping up. My dogs always did fine on the other, I don't know why they 'discovered' all of a sudden, that grain free was the be all, end all.
  12. My dogs always seem insanely hungry on grain free.
  13. I figured that's who you were talking about. Alot of Hunter who work their dog hard around here feed plain old Purina dog chow. That's what I feed & never had a problem. Always get compliments on how healthy they look. George is currently on a different Purina food & I don't believe he does as well. Not holding weight as well. So when it's gone we are going back to old food.
  14. WHERE did you get them?
  15. What was the breeder feeding him? Did she send some home with him to mix with what you got? I know you know this, but for my new babies, I cut feedings in half, then mix in a little plain yogurt, or a couple spoons of cottage cheese, and a half a shot of pepto. Slowly mix in a LITTLE of the new stuff, especially with Shepherds, over TWO weeks time. Seems to me all this new "Grain Free" food fad is messing with the purebreds. I know my old vet up in MN was in on a study with the U of M and her Goldens, and grain free is NOT best for them as omnivores. In their long term study, there was a lot of pancreatic issues or something, I'll have to search her fb wall for the link, it wasn't that long ago. (Dr Jean & Dr Joel, RRW & Spanish, in case y'all were wondering who I was referring to. They run their Goldens HARD in Hunt Tests and competitions.)
  16. My pasture is wrapped around the barn. They have doors on front of stalls and thats how they go in and out. This is a couple years ago (we've done some improvements) but shows the set up. In all honesty, I hate my barn. But, does its purpose. [ Heidi, that's a beautiful horse!
  17. Holy COW, the kitties LOVE these catnip scented "fish" to play with!
  18. Not sure if it is as effective without the peanut butter can.
  19. Found out my mouse bucket trap will also work for chipmunks. 5gal pal Remove had Drill holes on each side Take empty soda can & punch a hole in bottom String heavy wire through can Attach wire to pail where hole punches are so can is in middle of pail. Pour 2 inches of water in bucket then float sunflower seeds on water Put peanut butter on can Place a board against bucket. Chipmunk will go up ramp, jump to can & then drop into water. One of my staffers said his BIL has been getting all sorts of chipmunks this way. I've used this trap on mice & it works great.
  20. I have always put my pups on adult food. Never had a problem. What about Winchester for a name? It is strong yet refind. Then on goofy days he can be Chester.
  21. We tried several, avroderm, wellness...ending up going between simply nourish and taste of the wild for a while. Eventually switched to 4 health, and now we are using kirklands with some Fromm mixed in. This is over a period of almost 8 years though, with several others mixed in that I can't remember as well. He had parvovirus as a pup and we really have to play with his food, he also gets bored easy and requires us to switch it up a lot.
  22. He's gorgeous! I do remember Reina.
  23. I have a partial bag of, taste of the wild, left over and, have given it to him in small amounts and, he still has diarrhea...it gets worse with the Blue Wilderness. I'm thinking, parasites of some kind, there was a tiny amount of blood in the last one. The breeder said she dewormed twice, I'm having doubts about it, of all the paperwork she provided, there was nothing from a vet, even though, she did say, "the vet says they are healthy and ready to go to their homes.".....I'm also doubting the first vaccines she said they got because, if they did go to a vet, I would think, I would have gotten a copy of the report, stating what the pup received and, the results of the check up.....such as, 'ears, clean, no odor, eyes, mouth, etc...as well as, 'heart and lungs normal'....ya know? Well, tomorrow I have many questions for the vet.

  25. No, this one is a Peruvian gelding. Does anyone remember Reina? I'm getting her pasture mate from the same family. Galileo de Cielo, 13yrs old.
  26. I bought a Tucker Horizon saddle that is super comfortable. I don't care for saddle horns - don't need 'em and got tired of leaning over and getting my breath punched out of me. Her bit is a Paso Fino small spoon bit. The shanks are loosely attached and have a lot of swing to them before they rotate the bit in her mouth. She is very light on the reins. I love my cool beans! I'm going to have to call them my beans, now.
  27. Yesterday
  28. In my case, I see no way for them to get in through the shifter. I see no way for them to get in, period, but they did. I haven't seen evidence lately, but, before, I had a package of gum in the glovebox that had a couple sticks chewed. I did put mothballs under the hood. It's getting colder, too, we've had a couple of freezes already. Chipmunks hibernate, maybe they're getting ready.
