I recently acquired a rescue horse, and she will have her first vet visit soon. She did not have it sooner because she was almost untouchable before. I've now got her halter broke and I've been working on leading and desensitizing. My question is,
-How should I prepare for this vet visit? What things should I work on with her before the visit?
-And what questions should i ask the vet about her? Like what types of vaccines are good to have where we live and of course about coggins. I'm sure she needs her teeth done but what else should I ask about?
She's 3 years old by the way.2 AnswersHorses7 years ago
So I recently adopted a rescue horse, and the lady said that her hooves have NEVER been done before. Not even cleaned out. Poor girl:(
I've been working on her lifting them for me, and shes doin really well now, but I'm having trouble cleaning them out. It's like concrete! Any suggestions? I'd like to get them cleaned out before her ferrier appointment next month.6 AnswersHorses7 years ago
I have heard that some people prefer to let their iguanas free roam the house rather than stay in an enclosure. Now, obviously there are cons to this as well: safety of the lizard, eating non food items, sanitation, and the mess (poop). And of course you would need basking stations set up.
I am wondering what you guys' take on this would be. Would the basking stations be necessary if you lives in a tropical environment? How would the safety of your lizard be assured? Do you disagree completely with free roaming? Let me here your thoughts!
P.S. I do not own an iguana, I'm just a naturally curious person ;P2 AnswersReptiles7 years ago
Hi guys! So, I've recently adopted a rescue horse, and she has not yet been ridden(she has had the saddle on several times though) i have been working everyday with her on ground work and simple thigs like messing with her feet and sacking her out. I've also been introducing new and 'scary' objects with her until she no longer sees them as scary. She does really well, and has no problem with the halter etc. However, she is a bit of a spook. I was just wondering what your guys' daily training schedule was, or what you would recommend for us. Right now, I haven't been doing any set routine with her. Thanks!3 AnswersHorses7 years ago

I know they can, so I guess what I'm really asking is can I be one? I'm female. I am short (5ft3) and I weigh 115pounds. I am 17, and really want to be a firefighter. But am I even able to? I know you have to be able to carry 45 lbs and run a certain amount of miles as an ability test. Do you think that's something I could do?6 AnswersLaw Enforcement & Police7 years ago
I think it's something he deserves to know before I marry him, but at the same time I don't want him hurt or always comparing himself to the men in the wretched stuff I watched. Im scared of his reaction, but i dont want to go into my marrige with this heavy in my heart. I was in my late teens during this struggle. We are both Christians. Please advise.3 AnswersMarriage & Divorce7 years ago

So if you saw my former question about what I should do with my horse while I'm abroad for 16 weeks, leasing my horse was what was suggested. This is kinda a follow up question. Or questions;) What is a typical lease agreement? What should I pay for/what should they pay for? Should she stay at my place or there's? Remember, I will be gone, so if she says at my place I will still have to find someone to care for her. How will I know she's being treated properly while I'm away? What should I charge?2 AnswersHorses8 years ago
Next year, I have the opportunity to study abroad for 8 weeks, and go on a mission trip for another 8. I really want to go, and have wanted to go for as long as I can remember. The problem is, now I have a horse. How can I leave her? I certainly can't take her! Selling her is not an option so don't suggest it. Would she be alright if I had someone come and work and feed her or should I full time board her somewhere? How much would she stress out with the change in routine? Will she not remember me when I get back?2 AnswersHorses8 years ago

She is a 3 year old filly that had a bad past with humans. She is not even halter broke, and has many scars from when she ran into barb wire and her owners never treated it. Her life was pretty much spent in a tiny isolated pen standing in her own manure all day. She had hardly any human contact and was never out of her enclosure. Poor girl was a mess when I got her! But you can see why she distrusts humans. I've finally gotten to the point where she will give me two eyes, and sometimes come up to me when I go out to the pasture with her. But I've made no more progress in the three months I've had her. Any ideas?3 AnswersHorses8 years ago

am preparing for a new addition to my canine family. The breed is called a tamaskan, which for those of you who don't know, is bred to look like a wolf, without any wolf bloodlines.. I have everything needed for the pup, but I have not decided whether to get a male or female, and if it should be pet or breed quality! I have no intention to breed the pup, and it will be spayed/neutered. However, I do photoshoots with my dogs, along with tv ads and some productions. For this reason and because the Tamaskan is a new/rare breed, I want to portray the most accurate image of this beautiful wolf lookalike. What do you think? Will pet quality suffice?
Also, I do many competitions (agility, obedience, rallies) with my dogs, and so I want a pup that is responsive and willin to please. My two current dogs are females, and they learn fast and are extremely focused. They do tend to be a bit independent sometimes though(not a good thing when they are working off leash). I have no experience with males. Are they any different? Pros and cons to both?4 AnswersDogs8 years ago
I have a filly who has had minimal human contact before me. I've had her at my place for awhile now, working on gaining her trust. Unfortunately, for reasons that would take too long to go over here, I need to move her...fast. I hadn't planned on moving her until she was at least halter broke, but circumstances came up and now we have to move to other property of mine across town.
She has only recently been coming up to me and allowing me to pet her, and we are no where near being able to load her willingly. However, I do not want to forcefully get her in the trailer and have that trust I've worked so hard to gain be lost. Any ideas? Thanks!9 AnswersHorses8 years ago
I recently cut my hair into a neat pixie cut. Unfortunately, my hair is really wavy, so it looks awful short unless I straighten it. With long hair I only straightened my hair for special occasions. Now I do it every time I take a shower, because, obviously then it's no longer straight. I take a shower about every 3rd day. Is this to often? I do use heat protectant.7 AnswersHair8 years ago
