The spend a lot of time dealing with horses and somebody explained if you use horses you have to be current together with your tetanus since it’s easily caught when working around horses. Aparently its within the soil. Is that this true? Are you currently more prone to get tetanus in case your around horses? If that’s the case why

    This Isn’t ME!-

    The initial Equine owner, who works in a stable, knows a respectable amount about horses.

    The equine includes a GREAT sweet attitude, By her personality you’d guess she was 10 or older.

    She runs nicely, halter broke, and it is calm and smooth under saddle. She was broke right, by experienced trainers. She’s a 3 years old Quarter equine Mare.

    What is your opinion? How would you react in cases like this?

    AGAIN, This isn’t me that I am speaking about.

    This is my first Pennsylvania winter as a horse owner in 20+ years. I don’t know if I need to blanket my horses. My brother who lives and owns horses in Colorado says that I don’t need to. What do you all think/do?

    I am a 16 year old horse back rider. I am completely, utterly in love with horses and I am looking to own one someday soon. I want to show the horse and just enjoy him/her. I do not want a horse I will have to fight, I just want to enjoy being a horse owner. I was thinking about a Quarter Horse, a Morgan Horse, or a Paso Fino. Please suggestions would be wonderful! thanks for reading and answering!

    What happens if I cannot afford my employer’s health insurance coverage? I am uninsured right now because I cannot afford my employer’s health insurance, and I am currently under the “sliding scale” at my community health center. The sliding scale is not a health insurance, I pay a fee according to my income. For example my gross income is approx. $1414, and my take-home pay is $1188. My employer’s health insurance requires us to pay a $600 deductible and a monthly premium of about $200 for ONE individual (the employee), NOT including family. If I were to get their health insurance, with a $200 monthly premium, I would only be taking home approximately $988, which is not enough to live on (I can’t afford to live on what I am making now, let alone if I had their health insurance!!!) This also includes co-payments: approximately $35 out of pocket just for a doctor office visit, and that does not include tests, procedures, medications, etc. That is JUST for an office visit!! If we need tests, procedure’s, or medications, we also have to do co-payments for those as well (for example my friend has my employer’s health insurance and she had to pay over $100 out of pocket for blood work…on top of her deductible and monthly premiums…insane!!). Another employee had to pay $60 out of pocket for only ONE of her medications!! I cannot afford my employer’s health insurance, so how will this affect me when Obamacare comes into play in 2014? Currently, I am under the sliding scale, and I only have to pay co-payments, no deductibles. For example, I pay $43 for a doctor’s visit, and if I need tests or procedures done, its FREE for me because of my low income. Under the sliding scale, I only have to pay 10% for the cost of my medications, while the other 90% is covered (one of my medications cost $230 a month, and I only pay $30 a month for it. Oh, by the way, this medication I am on, the employer’s health insurance does NOT cover it, so if I were to have their health insurance I would have to pay for this medication at FULL PRICE!!). I opted out of my employer’s health insurance because it is MUCH cheaper for me to go without it. How will this affect me when Obamacare comes into play in 2014? Will it help low-income individuals who cannot afford their employer’s health insurance?? HELP ME PLEASE!!

    I got a couple of questions about about auto insurance coverage. Namely, what’s the best amount of liability and medical coverage to select. 1) For the liability, I know it’s wise to get the best liability that one can afford to cover your assets. But how about if one also gets umbrella coverage. For example, if one gets an umbrella coverage at a $2 million limit and the liability limit for the auto insuarance is $300,000 or $500,000, does it make sense to select the $500,000 or is it better to select the $300,000 limit since the umbrella coverage would kick in? 2) for medical, is this redundant coverage and not needed because wouldn’t the liability portion also cover medical expenses? Or is it wise to get this, for example, if a passenger is not insured (no health insurance), so the medical part would help out in that case?
