    My current trailer has 120" stalls 84" in the horse stall and 36" at the head. I am looking to do the same configuration in the new trailer. As of now I had planned to do 104" box stall, adding a...
  2. The +1 stall comes standard at only 90" long,...

    The +1 stall comes standard at only 90" long, that doesn't really seem like long enough to actually haul a horse, and would then only be for storage. I'd really like the option to actually haul a...

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I've tried the fly sheet, he just ripped it to shreds itching. I actually think he itched WORSE in the fly sheet.

    Spirulina is an interesting thought, does anyone...

    Advice on an itchy horse?

    Every summer my gray beast turns into an itchy gray beast. REALLY itchy. His diet is top quaility, his coat shines, but man does he itch. He does have allergies, and is on allergy shots, but it...

    You didn't ask, but since I had the same experience with a horse, I thought I'd offer. My vet recommended this

    I don't know the configuration of your trailer, but if you can, put a muck bucket filled with ice under the heads where mangers might go. When you stop for diesel, fill it up with more ice.

    No, we're quietly judging them with a cocktail in hand. That's how we roll after all.

    Deniros. I ordered every off the rack boot 9 months ago to compare fit, quality, and leather. Deniros won hands down. I liked them even better than parlantis and Sergios.

    This rule was enacted to prevent the dosing of drugs within 12 hours of showing. I can (and do) give my horse injectable banamine the night before showing. If they show at 8 am, then anyone (groom,...
  10. Pretend you're ordering a new trailer.....

    What would you get?

    I have narrowed down my choice to a 4 star runabout 2+1 model. Base model is 6'10 wide, 7'6 tall. Horse stalls are 106" in length, the +1 stall is 90" in length, dressing...

    [hi-jack]

    Well I wouldn't respond, but since you ask, posts #4 and posts #7, same statement. Word for word. To be fair it wasn't "Get sh!t done" it was "Expect them to get it right on the first...

    Similar to the OP, I have the same experience of going cold on the weekend to save days off of work. For shows in my local area (when I'm not travelling out of state), I will haul up the day before...

    I am definitely flippant, but I'm not a jerk. Coming into a thread where someone is asking a genuine question about how a person jumps around cold at a show and telling them to simply "get shi!t...

    I can load a horse, and yet I still am not a Grand Prix rider. Go figure.

    Do you have a braider? I can't imagine how much a braider would bitch about a mane done this way.

    I do the scissor parallel to the mane method, after it is thin enough. His grayness has a pretty...

    I tried some leather version, it felt like a plain snaffle almost. I use this as a reminder to stay light in front and not drag. I'm tiny, my horses are huge. I've got a pretty light hand and the...

    Quality rope gag cheeks?

    Less than 6 months ago I bought a set of rope gag cheeks from Dover. I use this bit about twice a month, and no more than that. With that amount of use, I have lost one chicago screw and the rope...

    No they're not. But you asked why not have the rule based on [x] criteria is met. The answer to THAT question is because that's a subjective rule.

  21. Spin Off: How do you know what a suspension is for?

    People often assume it's for drugging, but I know suspensions occur for all kinds of rules. How would one find out exactly why a suspension has been set down?

    FWIW it's not necessarily drugs that set people down. There are all sorts of rules infractions that can cause this. I don't know the details of Shane's suspension.

    I had a beloved Jimmy's stolen 3 years ago. As a replacement (hate the new Jimmy's) I tried the Pessoa first, and oiled it. It literally did not change color. Hated it. Tack shop took it back. ...
