    Thanks everyone! I think I'll try the olive oil. It definitely is from the D section, and even though it doesn't touch her mouth directly, I'll stay on the safe side in case it drips.

    Inexpensive Heavy Duty Clippers

    Hi! My mare (Shire/Thoroughbred cross) has very thick fetlocks and my current clippers can't handle them very well. When I look at Smartpak, Dover, State Line Tack, etc., there is such a big price...

    That's what I was afraid of. Since there are only 3 horses on this farm, the owner doesn't want to separate them and have one be alone. My husband and I are building our own barn in a year, so I'd...
  9. Natural Supplement to Lower my Mare's Hormones?

    I've got an 8 year old American Warmblood mare. She is very calm and sweet, and I have absolutely no problems with her under saddle. (In fact, she may be a little too lazy at times.) I board her...

    I'm looking for extra long (60") black web reins with the leather stops and rubber grip in them. My old pair has worn out and I am surprised to see that I can't find anything like it. If you know...

    I found it for less expensive from State Line Tack, but then when reading the reviews, one says that it has a D ring in the center that isn't shown in the picture, which I wouldn't want. That's the...

    Thanks! The HDR might be what I am looking for. I've never heard of VTO Saddlery. Is it a big company like Dover?

    I think someone mentioned Twilight, which is pretty but makes me think of the books/movies. I like the name Twila (pronounced tw-eye-la). I once had a dental hygienist with that name and I've...

    Buying a New Girth

    This is a simple topic, but I am hoping to get some extra opinions. I do low level eventing, my jumping saddle is closest to the oakbark color, and I'm looking for a new girth to match it. Mine...

    Yes, for sure. I wanted to keep the hay totally separate. There will be a firewall between the hay and the barn and between the hay and tractor area. Thanks for the input!
  20. Making Barn Plans - Need input (feed area, utility room, etc.)

    I am planning a barn in Wisconsin for my family; it's not going to be a big commercial barn. It is going to be a 4 stall barn with a wash stall, a heated tack room, and a utility room. 2 - 24' x...

    I currently have an airy and open 7' 4" Trail-et with lots of windows. It works well because it has light colored paint and lots of daylight, so it doesn't look like a cave from the horses' point of...

    Indoor Arena size

    I am also in the midwest, and I hope to put up an indoor arena in the next few years. I've been paying more attention to arena sizes that I ride in. I think you'd want to go with a width between...

    Thanks for all of your input! It's good to know that I am on the right track. I've been continuing with the half halts, pole work, lateral work, etc. and I see improvements already. Looking back,...

    Thanks for the replies! I agree. I am due for a lesson soon, so I will definitely set one up. I actually had a really great ride today. Yesterday's ride was so difficult for me, but my mare...
