  1. What's For Lunch?

    We have the most amazing BBQ restaurant in town called Phat Phil's... My mom has been craving it for about two weeks, so she made me promise we would go there today... Its one of those places that, after you eat there, you burp for hours and can retaste it-- Quite amazing, really. :) Enjoy your lunches, all!
  2. Sedation Question....

    LOL! I was horse city-ing it between customers at work... :) By the time I had got it posted, there must have been the two postings!! :) Sorry!!! Getting some wonderful info on the subject! :)
  3. Sedation Questions....

    Yes, this technician is known for horrible bedside manner, and they have lost clients because of it. I REALLY LOVE my vet, but am considering finding a new one simply because I don't feel comfortable leaving my horse if the technician is going to be handling her....... She is my baby! :)
  4. Sedation Questions....

    Thank you!! That is kinda what I was thinking... She is used to being on free choice hay, so to take her totally off of feed for a whole day makes me nervous... But she got to eat this morning, so hopefully she will be ok for the rest of the day until I pick her up! :)
  5. Sedation Question....

    I worked for an Equine vet here locally, and we never required anyone to "fast" their horse before a procedure that requires sedation, such as a float, in this instance..... Well, this morning, I took my horse to my vet (not the same one as above), for a dental float-- One of the technicians yelled at me for having hay in my trailer and said that she shouldn't have had anything to eat after nine last night. (Not like anyone told me that....) While I know that you are supposed to fast dogs and cats for spays and neuters and the like-So they don't vomit while under anesthesia, I assume that since horses are unable to vomit, and they are only sedating her, this shouldn't be an issue? Input, please!!!

  7. I Have Decided.... :(

    Another question...... :) Those of you who have used Dreamhorse... Did you have a regular or spotlight ad? Is it worth the money to upgrade to the spotlight ad? I have her listed in just a regular photo ad, but am contemplating upgrading--I just don't know if it is worth it! Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! :)
  8. Slow Feeders?

    Thanks! I was pretty proud of it! Its very simple, but it works, and my horses seem to enjoy it! The nets have definately paid for themselves in the amount of hay that I am saving--They still get the same amount, but they aren't stomping it into the ground and its not blowing away!!
  9. Farrier Derriere' Contest

    That is exactly what I was going to ask!! Hahaha!!!
  10. Slow Feeders?

    I found a picture that you can kinda see it! :)
  11. Slow Feeders?

    One of my mares plays with EVERYTHING, and I was really worried about putting up my hay nets... (The ones listed in my above post from Miller Harness) I have found if you tie it off so that there is a smaller loop than just the top string rope thing ( I am horrible at describing this!!).. I have attached a rope from the top beam inside their shelter with a spring link on the end for easy removal and refill.. The way it is set up, there is really no physical way they can get tangled in it-especially since the mesh is so small, I can't even get my hand into it! :)
  12. Need Fictitious Name Help!

    So I just had to google "cow teeth".... Because I didn't know that! How cool is that! I learned something new today!
  13. I Have Decided.... :(

    I know huh! That is what I have seemed to notice... Everyone wants a really expensive horse in trade for their cheap little backyard pony.... Good luck selling Honey! Maybe one person will buy them both.... [bat Eyelashes] hehe!!
  14. I Have Decided.... :(

    Thanks everyone! :) I finally got a few posted on various websites........ [Me Cry]
  15. Oh! What A Day.......

    I know the feeling.... I am so sorry about your friend-What a terrible thing to happen! And what a jerk for acting like that in front of his family and friends! And I have SO been there on the electric bill issue! What a drag..... Cuddle up with a good pillow tonight and enjoy your sleep. :) Tomorrow will be a better day! [Huggy]
