Re: Any advice for breaking up pit bull fighs?

I agree to call animal control. It's not healthy for anyone, human or dog, to be in that situation. Thank god I never had to use it with Rosie, but I always had a break stick in my pack when I went out with her in case a loose dog were to run up to her. My partner called it overkill, but I always w...

Any advice for breaking up pit bull fighs?

My neighbor's pit bulls went at it again last night. There was one adult and two small children in the house where this took place. I don't know who was being attacked. I pray it was dog on dog, but the terrified screaming of the little girls would raise the hair on the back of your neck. I want not...

Owlets and sibling rivalry. Watch for the self-defense technique at the end :lol:

strange neighbors

My neighbor's stepfather was out working on the yard next door today. My dogs barked at him for a moment, as he is a new person. I asked them to stop instantly, which they did, and I pulled them back into the house. And as I did so, he yelled at me. Why? For "harassing those puppies." According to h...

Re: Gossip and Oya

It sounds like you are having a wonderful time working with them, and that Gossip at least is taking advantage of every bit of it. I'm glad your foal show went well for you. Oya may not have gotten placed, but she was in the top half of the class, and Gossip is a star already <G> They are lovely bab...

Re: Sometimes I despair

Tell me, Sarah, is this overconfident cat a red cat? Just curious. I've found that if you've been claimed as friend by a red cat, it's really hard to get through to them that you do not want their company, and your new friend sounds a bit thick in that department. :lol: I usually have the opposite p...

I can see why you'd think he wanted your bag of goodies. That name, Früchtelebkuchen, just sounds so
delicious, kind of like chewing river rocks.... :lol:

Re: Gossip and Oya

Oh, aren't they beautiful! And brave. Ear mats are something I've never had to contend with,
but it surely takes a brave baby to deal with that! Glad all is going smoothly.

And what kind of show are they entered in?

Re: The Funnies Thread...

The last time I remember coming off was also at a civil war reenactment. The horse I was on went up on her hind feet for some reason, I can't remember why. Me, I just very quickly and carefully unmounted by sliding off her and pushing away. she ran for the picket line. about 6 months previous she d...

No no no pennywhistle, give it a go! Just make sure you have a good teacher and a good pony Yes, absolutely :) my driving was rather 'extreme' as I was working for a dealer breaking-in, and also drove a stallion. Never ever drive alone. Start off with rock-steady Neddies. Never drive alone. Make su...
