I had a fecal egg count done when I first brought Star home - hadn't heard of them before, but the vet suggested. I was just 'going along with what others were doing' with deworming, figuring that by 'rotating different kinds, I was covering all basis'. After only a $24 fecal, he called within a few hrs, gave me an exact count, and said, "Quest"! No guessing games! :)

Just when you can after settling her in - all I had to do was put a few fresh 'muffins' in a ziploc bag in the morning, and drop it off. He just called when he looked at it! Quick as that :)

I don't know if you're big on unique names or like to keep it simple, but I made a small list a while back for someone who was needing unique names...I have the origin and meaning and everything for each name. I know it's not a lot, but if you need some help hunting anything in particular down let me know! I'm a writer so I'm constantly looking up new names anyway.


Anastazja (not a very unique name but the spelling is gorgeous) - Polish for "resurrection"

Zyanya - unknown origin for "always; forever"

Kailani - Hawaiian for "the sea and the sky"

Aisling - Gaelic for "dream; vision"

Nova - Variant of Latin name, means "exploding star"

Shalott - Based on Tennyson's romantic poem, "The Lady of Shalott"

Verdandi - Old Norse name meaning "present; that which is happening"

Elysia - Based on the Greek mythological land, this name means "lightning struck"

Iskra - Slavic for "spark"

Astraia - Greek for "starry one"

Vespera - Esperanto for "evening star"

-Kennedi

Love RivendellNative's suggestion of Tennyson's "Shalott", and also thinking now of LOTR, how about "Arwen", or "Evenstar"? :)

I don't think so..from what I understand true albinism doesn't exist in horses, but horse that are considered to be "albino" lack pigment in their eyes, hers are defiantly blue. :)
