    Pony was tender footed today on the road, as is he barefoot and not exposed to anything but snowy ground. He was not barefoot in the OP videos, and if he was lazy, it was only because my boyfriend...

    I keep in touch with both of my horses' previous owners. At first it was via email, but now we're connected on Facebook. They've been valuable resources if something comes up (feed change, history,...

    That mangy IKEA cushion smells like you and your DH, of course your dog will love it!
  4. Horse NQR - videos *new vids post #5

    New videos added post #5

    If you all suggest what angle you'd like to see the horse from, I can get a new video tomorrow likely (from directly behind, directly in front, mounted, unmounted, from...

    My rear billet is a sliding V, so there are currently three connections for the two billets. Might be possible to switch it up, we'll see after my saddle fitter gets back to me. I did find another...

    OP- I'd just like to say that I bet your attention and exercise has helped the QH and his arthritis. Even just getting out and moving and plucking around, walk, trot or just grooming would be good...

    I have a custom Coronado. Adjustable tree, monoflap, and the knee roll is substantial but not as inhibiting as the thigh blocks. I thought I loved the solo and the icon flight, but I actually like...

    Thanks kpony. I've also just seen the Kent & Masters saddles have the changeable billet system (as well as gullet system), so might be a more convertible saddle for my needs. I can't say I'm in any...

    This is what the underside of my saddle looks like: http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/allymrtn/monoflap_zpsd3c22838.png

    the block is quite stiff. I know it seems counterintuitive, if the rest...
  10. My concern with the monoflap saddle is that the...

    My concern with the monoflap saddle is that the block just floats there under the flap. Not sure if it would actually work for him even after moving the billet. Theres not much else to attach the...

    The story on the OP is wonderful.

    I get that not everyone will come around to be as understanding as most people on this thread (it's awesome how many people ARE up to speed on this sort of...

    OP- I think you should either tell her or not tell her based on what you think you can live with. If they do get married and live above you and you don't say anything, are you going to feel awful...

    I confess: I DON'T treat one of my horses, but the other gets spoiled with goodies. In fairness, one is an angel about treats, and the other is an a-hole!

    I cut manes with scissors, every time. ...
  15. Saddles with both billets coming straight down from the center by the stirrup bar

    Just as the thread title says: I'm looking at dressage saddles with the old school billet set up, where both billets (the front billet is my concern) come straight down, originating somewhere under...

    At a recent gathering someone served grapes with toothpicks stuck in. Except the grapes were dipped and chocolate and toffee (a smashed up skor bar melted down). OMG divine!

    I just had one gifted to me, and it was done on that 1/4" thick plastic poster board that election type signs are made of, with the greenery glued on. Quite pretty, would be very easy to do!

    It won't hurt. You reposting the same point insistently over and over, however, sure comes off as the guilt trip despite how many times you say it's no obligation. The reading comprehension is...

    Mine live outside 24/7 and compete in eventing and dressage. I keep them occupied with regular flakes (I call it putting another "flake in the meter" for the one who will happily leave his eventing...

    I wonder if this is legit, can't seem to find info either way. I REALLY want to be able to stream and watch, even if it isn't live... Unfortunately, I don't have cable or satellite at the moment..

    I guess the other option is along the lines of a mini, but hold out to find a small pony instead of the mini. A little less delicate, a little easier to work around the feeding issues. Either way,...

    My situation is that I'm not working. I do have time, though the plan with a resale is kind of do a revolving door, a project per year. If I end up in a spot for a few months here and there over...
  24. Three choices for companion horse (adding a third)... help me weigh options!

    I posted a while ago about adding a third horse to my two, to alleviate the submissive guy's herdboundness. He never had issues prior, but this year we moved to our own property and my second horse...
  25. Those with winter -- how to be ready early season?

    So I'm new to this whole snow concept. I rode in near freezing rain the last few winters and am pretty good at just sucking it up. But here, it's frozen and snowy. No indoor within 65km, and the...
