    It doesn't have to be the styrofoam (by Dow) brand, because not every where carriers it. It needs to be extruded polystyrene, which comes in blue, pink, and green (that I've used).

    This is the...

    Afraid to show open? I am an ammy who often requests to show open (doesn't always work since Ammy is plastered all over my cards page), and I regularly receive higher scores. Particularly in the...

    Your horse is so lame it refuses to trot, correct? Where does the lameness block to? It sounds like you have not tried injecting steroids in the injectable areas within the blocked region, right? Out...

    I think it's a bit of a leap to suggest the horse retired because he eats west coast alfalfa 4 times a day and the owner doesn't like him being switched to local grass at random by strangers.

    My...

    Talk to them this morning. Lovely people, just concerned something happened to the horse's owner. We still shouldn't feed stranger's horses, but I feel our situation is well resolved and the horse is...

    Meup, they were told on the phone call, in a very clear way, "thank you for your concern, but please don't feed him." They then did it anyways. Sorry for not putting the direct quote on COTH. I agree...

    2tempe's math is correct (as is yours for a smaller pony). According to the formula, an 8.95x8.95 stall required for a 10.3 hand pony.

    That said, I agree an 8x8 is fine for a temp stall.

    It sounds like you have it resolved, but for anyone's future reference, 2" blue insulation board from Home Depot/ lowes, duct taped to the bottom of the foot can make all the difference. They aren't...
  9. Show neighbors keeping feeding and watering my horse, after I asked them not to.

    I get to my horses' stalls at noon to feed lunch. One is eating a completely different hay and has full water. Ok, I assume a groom made a mistake, no biggie. Then at 4, the people call me and ask if...

  11. Tips for finding/contacting show grooms 2500 miles away?

    I've been searching for a "professional groom" or junior out on break that may want a week long job in Gladstone, but I've not been able to find anyone available the first week of June (before...

    It is salt from the sweat.
    They do sweat out salt.
    They loose a fair amount of salt when sweating.

    Same thing happens when sweaty nosed horses drink from their water buckets and then they get...

    What are your goals? He looks like he could be a consistent 60-65% at 2nd level with that rider. The right rider could probably get their bronze on him. He's going to be limited more by his movement...

    About 10 years ago, my horse unlatched his stall at Fresno horse trial. I got up to feed at 4am on XC morning and he was gone and no one was in sight. 20 minutes later I finally found him, laying...

    Repeating the above, no, you cannot. Going in the arena is only permitted when you can't go around the arena AND it's approved by the judge.

    Add 5 minutes of work every 10 days (in addition to walking warm up and down).
