    Well good luck to the owner. I'd say it's going to be hard sell and she might want to be prepared for having them around for a while. As a breeder I anticipate that I will keep a foal until age 4. ...

    Are these TBs going to the track? Just curious because it is very hard to sell a yearling in general. I sure hope that selling by early winter is not critical.

    I'm sorry, but I have been around long enough to see a bear market and know that stocks can go up and down. Even if you got this kind of return in 10 years, what happens if you die then? Insurance...

    On the cribbing, say what you said here. My horse used to crib when stalled for long periods of time; he doesn't now with adequate turn-out. He has not cribbed for the last number of years when he...

    If you don't want to be stuck long term, don't take the risk. There are limited buyers for green horses, so I would expect that they would be long term projects.

    Carol, Great Meadows is this weekend. Perhaps you can come out yourself. CDCTA will have a tent and refreshments for members.

    There are a million threads in the topic of mortality insurance. Run a search. You'll find lots of information.

    I respectfully disagree. Everyone has to start somewhere. I was lucky to have started horse ownership as a child. My parents knew nothing about horses, but I was in 4-H. That helped a great deal....

    I am late to this thread, but it is not as if you are signing on for this commute for the rest of your life. Your salary, etc. will increase over time. You'll be able to move in future. It's...

    It's a younger person's game in my opinion. I loved it when I was younger. I saw a great deal of the US and the Europe while business traveling. If you like new experiences, it is fun. I always...

    I am surprised there is income to be earned off boarding. I simply do it because it helps with cash flow. Coops and self-care can work nicely IF you have the right people. The issue is what will...

    The listing says the Fjord rides and drives. They are saying that he is grade, but my guess is that his papers are lost. If he is registered Canadian, look for a microchip. If US breeding, get a...

    BWBH skipped Manassas -- plenty of hotels there, too. You should be able to get a good rate for the weekend around here in the summer.

    I had a doozy a few years ago. I really think that Fjords attract timid nutcases who think a small draft is going to be brain dead.

    Anyhow this lady calls me and goes on and on about wanting...

    It depends on the insurance carrier; some require that the additional insureds are employees. Coverage for independent contractors extends to the BO only, not the trainer. My experience is that...

    There are any number of reasons to be above board with the kind of arrangement. Have a lease for the rented property. Have a work agreement. Depending on your legal advice, get appropriate...

    We bought land next door to our farm. We used a realtor. But we bought the entire parcel.

    You do pay a transaction fee for credit cards, but I would still use them because it is a reliable and convenient way to get paid. I have sold a horse through PayPal. What you can do is have a...

    The coons haven't gotten to the keys yet, but they seem to have a great time taking the cats' food dishes. The current one is chained to the wall now. I hope the coons don't go after the keys and...

    The equine products mentioned are PROPERTY coverages. There also is LIABILITY coverage that is availability, either as a stand alone policy or as an endorsement to a mortality policy. I'm always...

    One thing to consider is the age of the daughters. Be prepared for any and all of them turning into the evil daughter from hell who acts out. I had a niece who spent 10 years in that role before...

    Right now my fields are comprised of: 1 stallion, 3 mares and a foal; 4 mares and a gelding; 4 mares and 5 geldings. It all works fine. No drama, although the mares in the field across from the...

    It is highly unusual to have employment agreements, particularly compensation, in the Bylaws. The Bylaws have to be in a form approved by the state. I would start with the Bylaws and see 1)if they...

    Well I'm never quite sure what 16.5 means. It could be 17.1 or maybe 16.05 (as in half an inch over 16 hands). It would seem to me that if you really wanted to be "scientific" you would measures in...
