I have horses, dogs & cats. THE HORSE needs to concentrate on horses.

2/2/2009 8:23:26 PM

Great Idea!

2/2/2009 8:17:18 PM

you are The Horse.com, not dogs/cats/horses/ whatever other animals are on the farm.

2/2/2009 8:15:41 PM

Specific info as it relates to interactions w/horses would be helpful

2/2/2009 5:00:39 PM

also sheep, goats, chickens, waterfowl on property, need info to properly manage multi-species farm

2/2/2009 4:35:25 PM

can save as favorite easier if separate under dog or horse--already plenty of info w/ just horses

2/2/2009 2:03:16 PM

It would be neat to have more information on Corgis

2/2/2009 1:58:25 PM

I'd rather stick with horse issues - there are enough of them

2/2/2009 10:50:24 AM

prefer more information on horses

2/2/2009 8:46:17 AM

Only about how the equine/ companion animal relationship may help horses. Not about care.

2/2/2009 8:31:11 AM

Farm animals too! Hard to find vet info about them

2/1/2009 10:52:17 PM

Alaskan sled dogs 60

2/1/2009 8:45:31 PM

Isn't there enough to learn about horses ???

2/1/2009 11:47:29 AM

you do a GREAT job keeping up with the horse world, would not like to see it compromised

2/1/2009 11:33:01 AM

would like an article on which breed of dog work well with horses

2/1/2009 9:16:41 AM

if its about general saftey/barn saftey that would rock

2/1/2009 6:59:05 AM

higher suspensory ligament

2/1/2009 5:56:58 AM

No. Don't dilute your resources. This is TheHORSE.com, not Horse, Cat & Dog.com

2/1/2009 3:40:55 AM

Just one elderly Cattledog & a stray cat, but always happy to have info of interest!

2/1/2009 12:53:45 AM

this is the horse.com

1/31/2009 7:41:59 PM

i love my dogs and cats, but i come HERE for HORSE info and would NOT want that diluted by smallies!

1/31/2009 4:41:51 PM

I would prefer information on companion animals for horses (such as goats, etc)including cats&dogs

1/31/2009 4:28:16 PM

unless it involves disease trans. from horse to pet or vice versa

1/31/2009 3:53:37 PM

this is suppose to be about equine

1/31/2009 10:32:06 AM

articles on how to keep your dogs safe around horses and how to correct problems

1/31/2009 9:00:49 AM

I currently own 6 dogs, so that would be useful!

1/31/2009 6:40:11 AM

I love my animals/pets I am always looking for good ideas and support!

1/31/2009 12:54:50 AM

I have 5 cats and a dog as well as my 2 horses so I would love it!!!!

1/30/2009 11:26:23 PM

Thanks for asking. Also have goats and chix. The more info the better. Newsletters informative!

1/30/2009 9:34:00 PM

Please keep this reserved for equines.

1/30/2009 7:01:04 PM

I want to keep thehorse about horses.

1/30/2009 5:23:06 PM

I'm already a member of AKC and experience information overload

1/30/2009 5:20:21 PM

I had 3 dogs but thehorse.com is horses only horses and that should be it.

1/30/2009 4:51:17 PM

I subscribe to The Horse magazine for horse info. I go to other magazines for my other animals

1/30/2009 3:49:33 PM

I travel extensively with 2 dogs and would like info regarding travel, vaccinations, fleas ticks etc

1/30/2009 3:48:39 PM

No, but goat information is hard to find

1/30/2009 3:19:46 PM

Great Idea

1/30/2009 2:59:06 PM

This is for horses. There are plenty of other sites for other companion animals.

1/30/2009 12:26:37 PM

that would be so cool! im studying to become a veterinarian, and ive used this site tons of times!

1/30/2009 10:33:01 AM

keep Thehorse.com for horses, there are plenty of sites devoted to other pets

1/30/2009 7:34:16 AM

Since Horses and dogs and cats for that matter go together it would be a great addition.

1/30/2009 7:30:14 AM

I am afraid adding dogs and cats would cut down on space for horse articles. Luv dogs & cats though.

1/30/2009 12:28:06 AM

I search site for horse info, don't want to have to filter out dog and cat info!

1/29/2009 11:30:02 PM

Do what you do best...HORSES!!!

1/29/2009 6:46:24 PM

Include only if it is related to horses; i.e. how horses cats and dogs can interact

1/29/2009 6:34:38 PM

would be great

1/29/2009 6:08:55 PM

I'd prefer a horse newsletter to be about horses.

1/29/2009 5:46:26 PM

But keep it segregated at the bottom of each issue.

1/29/2009 5:14:28 PM

I want your staff to concentrate on the horse, be the best at what you do.

1/29/2009 4:37:31 PM

The farm ewe adopted my horse, so now I am a sheep owner. HELP!

1/29/2009 4:36:41 PM

I joined this site specifically to learn about horses. Can find info on other pets somewhere else.

1/29/2009 3:49:21 PM

Just about the interactions which are amazing.

1/29/2009 3:29:49 PM

As long as it does not take away from all the information and stories on the horses.

1/29/2009 3:21:47 PM

stick to the vast amount of inof on horses

1/29/2009 3:20:53 PM

I am absolutely impressed with this magazine. Own 3 dogs, 9 cats...wld stll lke to c u stick to hrse

1/29/2009 3:09:53 PM

I always appreciate your helpful suggestions and information.

1/29/2009 3:01:32 PM

I can read about cats and dogs in other magazines if I choose to. I read horse.com for the horse's.

1/29/2009 2:17:43 PM

My Clydesdales LOVE their 3 pygmy goats--how about some goat information?

1/29/2009 2:15:23 PM

It's called 'The Horse' for a reason

1/29/2009 2:06:10 PM

Sure sounds fun. My city dog went to country dog and it's been "interesting"!

1/29/2009 11:40:32 AM

NO, There are already plenty of those sites.

1/29/2009 8:34:11 AM

I feel that my dog and cats are as important to me as my horses are.

1/29/2009 7:43:30 AM

I have pets, but your new letter is called THE HORSE

1/29/2009 12:42:31 AM

but something about mules or donkeys once in a while would be nice. they're equines, too:)

1/28/2009 9:34:41 PM

We have 2 dogs a boxer and a mini dachshund and about 15 barn cats.

1/28/2009 8:58:22 PM

something on goats,alpacas and llamas would be great

1/28/2009 8:46:46 PM

could this section also include a place for readers to share their stories?

1/28/2009 8:12:41 PM

No, keep TheHorse.com about horses

1/28/2009 7:18:57 PM

I love my cats and dogs, but this website will be easier to navigate if it's just horses.

1/28/2009 6:48:38 PM

would love quality info!!!

1/28/2009 6:19:27 PM

I own cats but this is a dedicated HORSE site - and a good one. Let's keep it like that.

1/28/2009 5:56:49 PM

How about an article on caring for half wild feral cats that many barns have

1/28/2009 5:02:29 PM

lets keep it horses

1/28/2009 4:58:24 PM

I come here for equine info, please just concentrate on equines and keep doing the great job you do.

1/28/2009 4:52:15 PM

Therapeutic benefits to housed horses; such as cats, dogs, goats,etc.

1/28/2009 4:16:16 PM

Keep focused on HORSES

1/28/2009 3:12:50 PM

as long as it continues to be free, great.

1/28/2009 2:50:03 PM

only as it pertains to horses

1/28/2009 12:51:21 PM

If I want info on my dogs or cats I'll go to a species specific site.

1/28/2009 12:16:11 PM

Don't take resources away from equine for this- more info available for small animals elsewhere!

1/28/2009 11:44:34 AM

I come here for the horses, go to other sites for my cat and dog.

1/28/2009 11:42:46 AM

most horse owners have dogs and or cats

1/28/2009 11:17:59 AM

The Horse should stick to Horses!

1/28/2009 11:10:07 AM

A good idea if you can stay more medical based and keep away from "fluff"

1/28/2009 11:01:48 AM

I think you should keep this just about horses

1/28/2009 10:59:58 AM

Please keep The Horse strictly equine & don't risk diluting content

1/28/2009 10:50:18 AM

TheHORSE.com should remain what it is, about HORSES!!

1/28/2009 10:40:43 AM

unless it also pertains to horses, such as barn cats

1/28/2009 10:31:01 AM

this isthis is a HORSE forum, not cat or dog forum

1/28/2009 10:15:44 AM

that info can be found elsewhere for those who want it-there's enough to look at already on horse.co

1/28/2009 10:00:52 AM

A horse is not officially a companion animal,

1/28/2009 9:34:11 AM

Lets stick to horses--there is a lot of info to cover just on them.

1/28/2009 9:33:52 AM

this magazine is called the horse, not the dog, cat, and horse

1/28/2009 9:17:38 AM

OH Pleeease. No

1/28/2009 8:45:57 AM

The mag is called The Horse, not The Horse and Dog. If I want info on my dog, I read my dog mag.

1/28/2009 8:30:44 AM

dogs

1/28/2009 7:31:02 AM

This is HORSE.COM.....not FAMILY PETS.COM. This is a great source about horse. Keep it that way!

1/28/2009 2:57:28 AM

I feel strongly that it should remain strictly equine related.

1/27/2009 11:21:53 PM

I love my cats/dogs/geese/ducks/etc. This is thehorse.com, not thedog.com. No dog articles, please

1/27/2009 11:20:23 PM

horse facts only please. Dont let this be a sounding board for animal activists

1/27/2009 11:02:58 PM

it would be realy good as i miss my old cat and dog but i wouldnt like less horse and more compain

1/27/2009 10:48:53 PM

would prefer that this be left as horses only

1/27/2009 10:05:05 PM

no way, this is a HORSE publication

1/27/2009 9:57:10 PM

NO! this is the HORSE, remember?!

1/27/2009 9:17:25 PM

This IS called THE HORSE. Keep it for horses. Do another separate site for that

1/27/2009 8:29:07 PM

I have 7 cats and 5 dogs. I love the horse website, and the format the information is presented.

1/27/2009 8:28:13 PM

I enjoy all the great information shared here, would enjoy the same for my house pets!

1/27/2009 8:27:22 PM

I believe "The Horse" should be about the horse.

1/27/2009 8:25:32 PM

Leave The Horse as is. You keep wanting to change it.

1/27/2009 8:00:00 PM

I enjoy your site because it strictly focuses on horse issues, and is not cluttered w/ other info.

1/27/2009 7:53:32 PM

I have 2 dogs 1 cat and a cockatiel but I want horse stuff.

1/27/2009 7:44:27 PM

please, stick with only horses

1/27/2009 7:33:33 PM

We have dogs, cats, chickens, goats, etc. etc. but I come to the horse for HORSE info...

1/27/2009 7:25:39 PM

my dogs & cat enjoy the company of my horses especially my cat she has a bond with my 30yr old horse

1/27/2009 7:04:23 PM

I count on "the HORSE" for "horse news".

1/27/2009 6:55:49 PM

Don't take up space for equine info

1/27/2009 6:48:01 PM

It would not make me change anything that I do with the Horse. However I do enjoy having just horses

1/27/2009 6:45:33 PM

I have rhodesian ridgebacks, goats & barn cats

1/27/2009 6:36:14 PM

Plenty of info other places. Do separate, if at all

1/27/2009 6:20:20 PM

Our horse on stall rest has her own goat & kitten

1/27/2009 6:05:56 PM

I have cats and receive info on them - I need all the info I can get for my horses!

1/27/2009 5:45:51 PM

Especially how they pertain to horses. i.e. how to desensitize a horse to dogs/cats

1/27/2009 5:44:46 PM

No, this is TheHorse.com not TheHorse,Dog,Cat,Etc.com Please stay specialized that keeps quality up

1/27/2009 5:18:00 PM

and not only cats or dogs. other animals too. horse companions

1/27/2009 5:13:35 PM

keep with horses please

1/27/2009 5:10:36 PM

It be fun to see other animals to. Many horses have companion animals. Goats and sheep.

1/27/2009 5:08:27 PM

i have a sheltie that herds and it gets anoying! she has run a track around the barn!

1/27/2009 5:06:50 PM

please don't "multi-task" with the site

1/27/2009 5:06:17 PM

Why would I buy The HORSE to read about my dog? Dog's at horse shows, perhaps, but otherwise, no.

1/27/2009 4:52:47 PM

Unless it's about animals that you can house with your horses. ie donkeys? a goat? sheep?

1/27/2009 4:09:51 PM

What about donkeys? I read this but I have donkeys!

1/27/2009 4:08:20 PM

Most horse owners keep dogs & cats also, so I feel it is appropriate & would be welcomed by most .

1/27/2009 3:42:36 PM

I love my dogs, but there's lots of info on dogs. Maybe something horse-dog related

1/27/2009 3:34:08 PM

this is called thehorse.com

1/27/2009 3:28:26 PM

Yes, especially if you can offer some articles about how dogs, cats and horses function TOGETHER in

1/27/2009 3:22:53 PM

This is a horse magazine, BUT I would love a pet magazine based on this format.

1/27/2009 3:17:16 PM

Only if it relates to relationships between horses and other species.

1/27/2009 3:15:13 PM

only as it relates to safety - like those annoying folks who bring dogs on trail rides. UNsafe.

1/27/2009 3:09:21 PM

Horses only, please. Exceptions would be horse/dog or horse/cat stories.

1/27/2009 3:02:48 PM

If you talk about health-inherited conditions, diseases, including geriatric, not gen care.

1/27/2009 2:56:22 PM

Don't water down the excellent equine-centered content. We can get other info elsewhere!

1/27/2009 2:54:15 PM

Any useful info on managing all three species together

1/27/2009 2:53:18 PM

If content is the same high quality you provide on horses

1/27/2009 2:45:00 PM

hum....3 dogs, 20 cats, chickens, ducks, occasional goose, I'm fond of one stop shopping...

1/27/2009 2:43:13 PM

I have many other pets, but probably would prefer that you focus on equines to maintain excellence

1/27/2009 2:41:18 PM

Stick to your specialty

1/27/2009 2:40:18 PM

Please, there are few enough sites for horses alone as it is!!

1/27/2009 2:38:29 PM

Sure, why not?

1/27/2009 2:33:15 PM

should only focus on issues involving relationship with horses, ie. barn hazards for dogs & cats,...

1/27/2009 2:26:49 PM

There's already so much info available for other animals. Please keep this just for horses!

1/27/2009 2:25:45 PM

What dog breeds are good with horses? How can I teach barn cats to be mousers?

1/27/2009 2:20:00 PM

All animal lovers are trusted with the care of ALL animals.

1/27/2009 2:12:04 PM

As long as it doesn't take away from the main content of horses

1/27/2009 1:25:44 PM

The Horse is a great site! Don't dilute it with "other" animal info

1/27/2009 11:29:45 AM

There are other sources for that info, need all room for equines all around the world

1/27/2009 11:28:25 AM

Please just stick with horses. Dogs & cats already have their own huge sites.

1/27/2009 11:00:50 AM
