    The long and short of it....I quit. After 15 years, I am tired. I am tired of fixing other people's horses just to watch them ruin them again. I am tired of giving thoughtful, correct advice and...

    Whoa, whoa, whoa....starting babies but no benefits? That means you'll be saddle breaking young horses with no health insurance? No! Don't do it!

    Not sure if it would work for your space, but I saw a neat re-purposing of a wood pallet into a mini garden. Staple landscaping fabric on backside to enclose, fill with soil, and plant in slats. ...

    I could have written your post 2 years ago, eastendjumper. All details similar - only kid was 9 and had a younger brother that parents forced to lesson with sis. Both were VERY timid and scared on...

    I give my own vaccines and occasionally trim a pony here myself. But you can bet I still have excellent references from my vets (who care for my horses in all the other non-vaccine medical moments)...

    Wow, all of your geldings are much more forthcoming than any of mine! They're all hiders.

    And, yes, I enjoyed your thread title. (I'm 12 mentally some days.) Made me LOL!

    I just had boarders move out yesterday on what I thought were amicable terms (they moved to a much bigger barn with a much bigger program)....they left a gate propped open on their way out! Not just...

    I understand wanting to turn out little riders that are horsemanship-smart also. But everyone (myself included for my own daughter) balks at paying unmounted lessons. My solution is to schedule...

    My best friend had one of those plaid coats. I had enough good sense to not be jealous back then....now it's her old photos we giggle about in that plaid jacket!

    Grooming and tacking up are part of the lesson here until the kids are big enough/competent enough to do that. I only do semi private (no more than 3), the kids do as much as they can themselves but...

    Wonder Years was on streaming, we were watching it a few weeks ago. Original Law and Order is on there, too. Love Jerry Orbach! I enjoyed Weeds, Scandal, and Revenge more recently (we've had ALOT...

    He's the kind of pony people like me love! Perfect size, perfect personality for a kid. I can't imagine there isn't some little person out there who would adore this pony and stuff him with...

    Sounds like you might need advice on parenting the strong willed child more than meal time advice! :) Just teasing, super! Does she have red hair like my strong willed child? There's lots of room...

    I offered this before, if anyone can use a pair of small pony Soft Rides, they're welcome to them for cost of shipping. There's a tag in them with '011', so I assume that's the size? They are used,...

    I'm dying to know what they gifted you, KR? Are they as good at picking out presents for others as they think you should be?

    BTW, incredibly rude to let you know they return everything. Any...

    Completely agree. I have a feeling the strife over January board comes from over spending at the holidays. But, not.my.problem. I had to "remind" all my boarders about board last week. My late...

    Newsflash....he already is a lesson horse! Sounds like she's double dipping on your training/consignment fees and using him for students to ride. Great deal for her! Not so much for you.

    I have a recipe for eggnog cookies somewhere. They're very good, we made them last year. I also did an eggnog dip that was fabulous. We dipped vanilla wafers, pound cake cubes, and strawberries in...

    I have a small boarding barn like OP described. I have a good many horses of my own also. My policy for vet/farrier is if they get on the same schedule/want to use the same vet/farrier as me, I...

    For me, birth was easy! It was the 9 months of throwing up that I didn't enjoy so much! Epidurals are awesome and so are hospitals….besides the obvious safety concerns, birthing is downright messy...
