    I did not know that, I will add them to my charity list. Having absolutely nothing but the clothes on your back is easier to bear if you have a pet. At least it would be for me.

    The footing looks difficult and he is unfit so that could be a problem. I don't see what others are seeing in the hindend. Your horse is very game, but it doesn't seem fair to show him at this level...

    Homeless people and their dogs

    I don't know how they get them or how long the dog stays with them, but I have never seen a dog in poor condition that is traveling with people that clearly appear to live "rough".

    It does seem...

    I know that shelters and rescues are on tight budgets, they make the best decisions for the animals that they can. Knowing this I have always figured I will cover the cost of the problem or return...

    OP, I understand your concerns. I'm amazed by people that say things like "even a miniature poodle can be dangerous in the right circumstance". If I had to choose between being attacked by a large...

    Paul Moran and Go For Wand

    I read on drf that he requested his ashes be spread near her grave. That just seems to be so touching, so sweet. I know he won an Eclipse writing about her death, but I think his emotions went...

    Anything is possible but I've used soaked alfalfa pellets for at least thirty yea rs and never had a horse develop a problem. I like it because it helps a hard keeper with weight.

    Have you asked...

    I've noticed in the last fifteen years the horses just don't seem fit enough. I don't know the sport well enough to say if it's the type of horse (breeding) or if horses simply aren't being...

    Nice mover, not fancy but he seems to have three good gaits. Very beautiful in the still shots. If he is sound and at a reasonable price I would think he could get you where to want to go.

    If you are "shaking" the bit in the way I'm envisioning it you did not hurt her. I've rattled the reins on one of my geldings that would get silly. Prancing and spinning equal acting silly. The...

    I agree that you should focus on teaching your horse to be caught rather than stressing because you can't catch him. The round penning gurus all teach the method of join up. I really like Julie...

    OP, it seems as though you are being "put on trial" for bringing questions about this into the open. Pretty much what happens to any whistleblower. I've seen some ugly things at shows (and at...

    Maybe instead of bigger, trickier fences they could go to steeple chase type fences. Are those any safer? (I'm thinking of brush)
