    Hmmm, I haven't asked him that! If I can remember long enough until the next time I talk to him, I will.

    In real life I have only met two posters. One is one of my boarders and good friends whom...

    The end of an era, and the beginning of a new one. Please travel lots, for me! (still tied down to the farm :-) )

    Thanks, fordtraktor -- you are on my list too! I love your parenting advice (among other things) -- same for cowboymom and rustbreeches. And there are way more of you -- I really would be here all...

    You know, I've given the "who would you like to meet" question a bit of thought. Everyone always says the same handful of posters. *I* would like to meet most of you! I'd want to meet Guilherme...

    In my opinion you only will need to warm up your horse if he is shivering. If no shivering, he is fine.

    Most horses will use a shelter if they are cold, though not all.

    That is so cool! Thank you for this, I had no idea solar fans even existed. This is what I love about COTH -- great ideas that I would never have thought of!

    You could very well be right, but that evidence is VERY circumstantial! It is a leap to say that the BO's horses are getting your feed etc just because on the feed chart they are fed the same thing,...

    Contact several potential new barns. Go visit them and talk to the BO/BM. Find one that is a good fit for you. Read their boarding contract. Agree on a move-in date. Ask them if they will...

    I would be extremely grouchy if a new boarder failed to tell me something about their horse that I thought was important.

    My barn, my rules, if I decide I don't want any horses who have cribbed,...

    I just got to see a "no notice/move suddenly" scenario explode close to home -- I've leased my horse to a very nice family who, after 12 years with their trainer, became unhappy and moved, with no...

    Well, since your BO gave you a week's notice of a massive change, and your board contract does not specify notice, I would say "no" you do not owe her notice (or, perhaps you owe her a week's notice...

    I know you are upset about the other mares being put in your paddock, and I would absolutely be too. But just to clarify, 6 horses on a little less than an acre is totally fine, in terms of numbers....

    It's tough -- what works with one kid won't with another. If it were me in this situation, I wouldn't give a black or white hard line, which DD can push back from. I mean,...
