    six Miniatures slaughtered in their stalls

    Heartless evil cowards ! If I had to endure the horror of finding my beloved pets like that and I found out who did that, I'm sure I'd be in jail for a while ! My condolences to the family and pray that they find the beasts that did it, and they pay dearly, either by justice or Karma !

    Higher farrier service rates

    Lol ! They did love to "help" you and you were so good with them I'm sure the clients that appreciate you would have no problem with paying a little more

    Higher farrier service rates

    I think it's about time that you charged a little more ! After all, it's been at least five years since I first started having you do mine and you charged that back then. After we moved, the girl I have doing them now charges $25.00 each (no farm call fee) which I am happy to pay. You know how...

    WINNERS POSTED! 6th Annual Christmas Decorating Contest!!!!!!

    Thanks Marsha My trick is to place buddies together and according to their pecking order, I back them into the spot I want them to stand, tell them whoa, if someone goes to move, I try to catch them as soon as they make the mistake. I can usually get them to wait like this for as long as it...

    Automatic log in ? Sometimes handy but also annoying

    Thank you ! I haven't been logged in now until I actually do so I am using my Windows phone for my internet browsing since my old desktop takes so long to turn on and get going, I rarely use it any more.

    Frustrated - "everything seems fine until it isn't"

    No "facts" ? Do they need a scientific study to be done in order to believe that? It is simply good common sense. If someone tells me that they have had a horse die or knows of one that died from a similar situation that I was keeping mine in, I would not stick my head in the sand and say "Mine...

    Automatic log in ? Sometimes handy but also annoying

    I log out each time I leave the forum but when I come back, I am logged in again. I've tried logging out then logging back in, unchecking the "remember me" box. I've logged out and reloaded the page to be sure I was logged out but still come back to find that I am once again logged in. It's kind...

    Frustrated - "everything seems fine until it isn't"

    Susanne, Thank you. I too just can not understand the reasoning that just because nothing has happened, that it is safe to mix them. No matter how well they get along. Or especially the reasoning that horses get hurt when together, no matter the size and not take into account the mass of a large...

    Oh my gosh ! I'm so sorry that happened to your little guy Thank goodness you were there to save him. Hope he gets over the attacks and heals quickly. I would have been furious that she put them back together the very next day. Poor guy Hope things work out for his situation so he isn't...

    Field of Dreams, Thank you for sharing, so sorry for your loss of your little guy. It shows that even a half size difference can be dangerous and deadly for mini's, let alone a size difference of 3-4 feet or more.

    Rhondaalaska, If your mini is 36" then I would think that anything up to 48" should be playing it safe. Thank you for considering this in your selection for her. Max's Mom, thank you for reconsidering your little ones housing, I hope the person you board with understands this, especially if you...

    HG Farm - So sorry about what happened to your little girl. I have heard of other cases of that happening too. Marty, pinning would be wonderful. I hope by these comments that some people are made aware of the dangers of keeping mini's and bigs and take action to keep their mini's safe. The...

    Frustrated - "everything seems fine until it isn't"

    Rabbitsfizz, your post is pretty much what I posted for her viewers but none of the people commenting would even consider it and certainly not the rescue owner. I gave up trying to educate and explain when I started getting nasty, rude comments.

    Frustrated - "everything seems fine until it isn't"

    I agree Marty, she is primarily drafts and I'm not sure why she combined them but I think it is simply for her convenience. I thought maybe she hadn't thought of what could happen so I mentioned that in my comment. She wanted nothing to do with taking any advice about it and was pretty rude...

    Thanks HG Farm, I checked and did find her farm listed. Applied for in 2002, seems she was busy in earlier years but looks to have slowed in the last few years to nearly nothing now.
