  1. Beavis The Goat, Emergency Run To The Vet

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned cider vinegar. My boyfriend just had to have a wether euthanized due to this same problem (bladder ruptured). I did some research and found that cider vinegar should be added to their daily diet to prevent stones. Anyone else familiar with this?
  2. So Is It Already Starting?

    Biden said that? That is really interesting.
  3. So Is It Already Starting?

    Two weeks ago I flew back to CA from TX to help the wife of the cutting horse trainer I adore with some payroll stuff. We talked about the election and she mentioned that the American public hasn't appreciated the fact that there hasn't been another terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11. I totally agree with that, and I've been harping that if Clinton would have done something after the USS Cole was attacked and sailors were killed way back when, 9/11 would have never have happened. Everyone is trashing & bashing GW right now, but I think his administration has really tried to prevent (and succeeded) another 9/11. No way to know how many potential threats have been averted. Do you think there is any correllation between the attacks primarily on Brits & Americans in India during the purely American holiday of Thanksgiving is the beginning of a new assault that will only get worse? I mean, how long will it take after the innauguration in 2009 before we will be attacked again in "our backyard"? I think the terrorists already see Obama as the new Commander in Chief, since he is spouting off like he is "the boss", and I fear for what will happen after innauguration.
  4. Enucleation Of Eye

    My gelding Rooster (SD Rooster Cogburn) lost his left eye as a weanling and he's now 12. I've owned him since he was two. He's one of the nicest, smartest horses I've ever ridden. I wouldn't trade him for most two eyed horses. A few weeks ago I took him to a show to just ride him around. He got a little nervous when riders would come up quickly on his blind side, but then I did too because some people couldn't control their horses. I always worry about some yahoo slamming into us. Later I heard a number of people commenting one the 'horse without an eye'. I just don't let it bother me. I'm sure your horse will adapt very well. Good luck on a speedy recovery.
  5. What Causes A Horse's Coat To Bleach So Bad?

    My seal brown gelding, Bucky, who normally gets a beautiful dappled brown coat in the summer is bleached like you wouldn't believe here in the Texas sun. But he's happy, fat & healthy, so I really don't care. This has only happened in the past two or three weeks, he was looking good all summer long, but now he is pretty orange.
  6. Riding My Blind Horse

    Congrats!! The toughest thing I've discovered about riding a blind horse (my Rooster only has one eye) is that the horse functions just great, and we then forget the horse CAN'T see. Pilot error is my only problem....I've run him into gooseneck trailers, into holes, into fences, etc., because he navigates with such confidence that I often forget that I need to be "his left eye". Verbal cues really help, and the horse is much more receptive to them that a horse that has 100% vision. I can just whisper to Rooster and he responds.
  7. Bad news about my cat, Harley UPDATE 7/1/08

    Prayers to you & Harley. I can understand what Holly is saying about getting blood results in a hurry.....last Tuesday I went to the doctor (MD) and he pulled blood and said he'd have results on Thursday.....I looked at him and said 'what????? You wanna have me take it down to MY lab and call you with the results?' Fortunately his sis is a vet so he got a good chuckle.

  9. Catholic parents...I have a question....

    Lillian Grace is a very pretty name. I'm really rusty on my saints' names, but I'm sure she has to be recognized. If her name was Moon Unit or Dweezle, I'm sure that would be questionable
  10. Twelve DOZEN deviled eggs. Update. I'm done. :)

    Twelve dozen eggs???????? I can't believe no one else has said this........ But that's just GROSS....... Actually twelve dozen of ANYTHING is gross, since 12 x 12 = a gross OK, the accountant in me just escaped for a second. Carry on )
  11. Bone Related Leg Injury. Help Please!!!!

    Ditto to Cheri. Your vet needs to do some better diagnostics first. In addition to blocking the leg & radiographs, you may want to consider a bone scan as well.

  13. Cribbers *arg!*

    You may want to try a grazing muzzle instead of the collar. I had a horse last year in training that was a chronic cribber. The collar rubbed him raw, and so we used a muzzle on him. He could still eat and drink normally, but couldn't crib.

  15. Powder Bute

    Syrup works well too for mixing with powdered meds. If you use the 60cc CATHETER tip syringes vs. the Luer tip you won't have to cut off the end. I don't like mixing oral meds with feed, I much prefer using a syringe. That way I'm sure the horse has really gotten the medication. At work, often a horse will eat feed w/meds for a few days and then refuse to eat it. I'd rather just mix up a syringe than waste meds in feed that won't be eaten.
