    So proud of my OTTB!

    Back in November, my barn was contacted by Volkswagen because they wanted to use horses in their press day exhibit at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Long story short, they...

    We are! My OTTB came home in September and has been progressing steadily ever since. :) I'm probably going to start him out with an intro/green-as-grass trial or two before running BN, since this is...

    What an interesting question. I just want to say I think it's very admirable that you're taking the time to thoughtfully consider this. I know that in an ideal world, all trainers would exercise a...

    This is the situation at my current barn-- tack out in the open, other gear in trunks (which can be locked, but most people don't bother). There are 45 boarded horses at my barn plus an active lesson...
  6. Sticky: Riderless Horse near Detroit, MI

    I have a coming 7-year-old, 16.3-hand OTTB gelding who needs 6-7 days of work a week, and will only be getting 3-4 days when I head back to school in January. So I'm looking for someone in MI...

    Hubby's little cousins had this music box that played "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" at the in-laws' house today, and I don't think the damn thing was turned off for more than 5 minutes. ALL....

    I have a good friend and former college sorority sister who has been with the same guy since we were sophomores in college (we're both in our mid-20s now). He slept with another girl about a year and...

    Thank you so much! Onyx (his far less unfortunate barn name) didn't do much on the track, but he's easily the most athletic horse I've ever owned, and I'm so excited to start him eventing next...

    Yet another TB pedigree...

    I would love to hear any analysis of my OTTB's pedigree. I've been doing some research, but I know very little beyond the basics about Thoroughbred lines and am just overwhelmed with all the...

    Not wanting to talk about feelings? Normal. Being kind of a jerk when pestered to talk about feelings? Maybe a lack of maturity, but pretty par for the course for many guys, especially young ones....

    I have a cold-backed OTTB and his Back on Track saddle pad is a godsend. We went through a Mattes pad and two chiropractors, the second of whom recommended BoT. I've been using it for about a month...

    I think it has to do with discomfort-- potential buyers want to avoid the potential conflict/confrontation of saying "no," so they just don't call. But you're absolutely correct; it is rude, even if...

    The monogram won't be a problem. Don't want to say yes or no on the bit because I'm not totally certain!
