    Thanks! He really is a hoot to ride, they make fun of me for giggling the entire time my butt is in the saddle. :lol:

    I would regularly get texts like that from one barn owner. As it happens, she conducted her "business" with the same level of maturity and professionalism -- thus she is no longer MY barn owner.

    He's happier without, and I'm not interested adding unnecessarily to his wardrobe. I don't care about bleaching, just wondering if clipped vs normal summer coat makes that much difference in...

    Chiming in here rather than starting a whole new thread -- any additional concerns about clipping a solid bay who lives out in pasture? He's got plenty of options to get out of the sun, but usually...

    Well dang, that one certainly applies! :lol: Wish I had room for another... anything... in my life. Too poor to properly enjoy the duo I have now. Add me to the list of the intrigued!

    I've added a tablespoon or so of cinnamon when I had to give meds, sometimes with a bit of sugar-free applesauce to make things stick -- current feed has the consistency of Rice Krispies so powders...

    We had really good luck feeding the Blue Seal Sentinel feeds to some of our older neglect cases. One 27y/o Cushingoid mare came to us as a 1.5 on the Henneke scale, with most of her teeth missing...

    I have one, it's as comfy as the Tipperary version but the cut is slightly different (IIRC, the front panels extend a bit lower?) -- so try it on and find a saddle to sit in if you can.

    It's not...

    Definitely not an age thing... In the last five years I've seen more drama started by "ladies" in their 40s-50s than anything that ever went down in high school.
