    True, those people handled it pretty badly, but that doesn't mean we have to deny there was even a small issue with the well being of the animal. I would not find it acceptable to do nothing with a...

    Well then apparently I agree. Your comment seemed to be implying that even a mild case, the horse will be "miserable", as in pretty noticeably out of whack. I'm saying that's not the case, the signs...

    Um, WHAT? It's detrimental to give a working horse water? I haven't heard that in about 10 years, better update your knowledge.

    And why is it acceptable to let a horse stand there while "breathing...

    Disagree. People just don't notice or they think it's something else...footing, lazy horse, etc. Tripping is a sign, so is being a bit sluggish off the leg, so is not really wanting to work....these...

    If they cultured it, did they not then treat it? Or was it cleared up already and they're just wanting you to know?

    Either way, I'd want to know why it's happening, how often it has happened, how...

    I would think that going to the softest with a bigger browband would be the ticket. I also think the wider smartpak monocrown is a good thing if she's been getting rubs. As long as the brow is big...

    Yep, cow patties here too. They all get it in the spring for a while, until the grass is less neon green and they are more used to eating it. I'd give it a couple months, then it should be normal...

    I agree that in this day and age signing an 'as-is' clause is a really bad idea unless you know the horse (not the seller, the actual horse) very well. I recently had to hire an attorney to settle a...

    I think it also depends on how long ago the surgery was and what he has done since then. If he's still recovering I would not buy it, you don't know that he will return to work and handle the stress...

    I would try both a loose ring KK or nathe. I think the happy mouth shaped mullen mouth is pretty similar to the nathe, but I've never actually seen one so not sure. Both are very mild, one moves a...
