• Favorite Brand / Style of Horse Trailer?

    I currently have a Brenderup Baron TC 2 horse trailer which I really LOVE, but I have so much tack that it won't all fit into the tack compartment. I may think about selling it next year and am researching other brands. What are your favorite brands of horse trailers? Also what style (straight load vs. slant load)?

A lot of my friends prefer slant load, but I've only ever had a straight load. It would seem the horse would have more difficulty bracing himself in a slant (stopping, etc.)....I know I would!

  • Is Knee Surgery OK For Older Chihuahua?

    My vet says my 10 year old (almost 11) Chihuahua may need bilateral knee surgery (she's having x-rays done today to confirm). She's been having trouble with her hind legs for the past 18 months and was originally diagnosed with arthritis. Now all of the muscles in her hind legs have atrophied to the point where you can feel her butt bones.... show more
    My vet says my 10 year old (almost 11) Chihuahua may need bilateral knee surgery (she's having x-rays done today to confirm). She's been having trouble with her hind legs for the past 18 months and was originally diagnosed with arthritis. Now all of the muscles in her hind legs have atrophied to the point where you can feel her butt bones. Her condition has worsened over the past month and there are times she can not even walk so she balances herself on her two front legs (with her rear in the air) and can actually walk quite a distance like that. My initial reaction to the possibility of knee surgery was "YES!", but the more internet research I do, I'm wondering if this will be too much for her aging body to handle. Is she too old to recover from this? Any input on this is greatly appreciated!
