Re: horse owners?

From the sounds of it the farrier follows a foraging diet (low sugar, low starch) which a lot of people are switching over to these days, it’s a diet based on mostly hay with a mineral supplement to...

Re: horse owners?

If I had to pick from that bunch the 3rd photo with the 4 stockings would be the first choice. I’m pretty sure he’s just leaning/turning that way not actually pointed out Permanently but I’d...

Re: horse owners?

I'd probably go with a male so you don't have to deal with a mare in heat throwing her butt around or a possibly excited donkey haha

Re: horse owners?

Parents that are well put together & make sense as a pairing will usually produce the same in their foals. Obviously itís more complicated than that but definitely look at the parents & their line to...

Re: horse owners?

Haflingers are built with short necks but they flex quite a bit and fit much better into the overall structure of the front of the horse. This ones neck is just off with little flex and he has no...

Re: horse owners?

Yes. Heís moving a little weird/short like. And his feet seem small for how solidly he is built. Probably the quarter horse breeding coming through. And his front right seems too upright to me like...

Re: horse owners?

Yikes that’s crazy! I got lucky from my one blackout fall. I got drilled into the ground and can’t remember the event or getting back on the horse. I remember the last jump and then sitting on a...

Re: horse owners?

I have a quarter horse (zippo pine bar, zips chocolate chip, two eyed jack lineage). He was bred to be the next western champion but sucked at it so much. He was a very nice $50k hunter/jumper in the...

Re: Fancy rats!

Re: Baby cockatiel questions!

By the way while they are fledging/weaning is the perfect time to do recall training. They want to fly to you because you are the parent (food) and they love to fly and learn. My girls took to it...

Re: Baby cockatiel questions!

I noticed someone saying ignore the bobbing after on solids. So wanted to mention this. Don’t force weaning. I’m all for abundance weaning which in some species can actually take a year or more in...

Re: Baby cockatiel questions!

My babies took 12 weeks to fully wean. And if the baby hadn’t been weaned for a few weeks before going home it could have definitely regressed.

This is what I followed when I was hand feeding my...

Re: Vet killed my Suncheek

If the tube has an anticoagulant it wouldn’t clot. I wouldn’t go on that personally unless you know it has no anticoagulant in it.

Re: Vet killed my Suncheek

If it hasn’t been frozen yet don’t freeze it. Freezing causes damage to tissues and bacteria. You want to put it in the fridge not the freezer but I’m guessing after two days the animal has already...

Re: Vet killed my Suncheek

I wonder if they lacerated the vein. Do you still have the body? Did it just happen? Is it in the freezer or fridge? If you want to get a case you will need a necropsy done to see what the cause of...

Re: I know when I'm getting a parrot... I think!

To give you an idea of how long F10 lasts when diluting it. The last time I ordered was in Jan 2018 & it was the smaller bottle of 100ml. I use it to clean 70ish snakes cages, 2 lizards cages, 6 bird...

Re: I know when I'm getting a parrot... I think!
