    Well dang, now I need to get me that horse shoe which they didn't have when I ordered. I had planned on ordering a badge with each of my horse's names anyway. My RoadID has held up great.

    Have always started off my youngsters by doing them in a stall, against the wall, and backed into a corner if necessary. They panic less over feeling off balance that way and usually after a few...

    The three Saddlebred/Draft crosses strum on their stall gates and if I don't put the hotwire back over the gate to the run-in shed, they take turns reaching over and pulling the plastic top off the...

    Thanks for the reply. While it's odd and was initially concerning, he does seem to only do it at rest and grazes just like everyone else the majority of the time. I have not seen him do it in the...
