    I faced a similar problem after graduating. I'd found a fantastic barn off campus where my boy had a huge shady paddock, great barn staff and was very happy. My job relocated me to NYC last year, and...

    I'm not even over the hill and that's how I feel :lol: BTW, they picked a good bottle of wine - Baileyana is grown and bottled about 5 minutes from my house and barn!

    Eric's comment is just heartbreaking. Same situation as McLain, really, just two very different ways of addressing it. Eric praised his mount and chalked it up to a disappointing but unavoidable...

    Hillary Ridland/Equisports is great if you're in the San Juan area (althought I believe she still spends some of the week in Malibu).

    Southwinds, that was my initial thought as well. However, he's been getting back to normal (which is still not okay, as he's still got that snorty thing going as we warm up).

    Anyway, the vet saw...

    He's actually in a paddock out in a quite lovely valley that always has a nice breeze, so other than the dust kicked up by cars (and that same breeze), his digs are very well ventilated. That said,...

    happyfeet - agreed. I've always been told not to worry about it, but it's something I watch closely because there's really no reason for anything more than a little throat clearing here and there in...

    No, but that's a good idea. He was better today in the morning, so I'm wondering if the heat or afternoon breeze is causing flare ups. Hopefully he'll just need some antihistamines to keep him...

    Dry cough is getting worse UPDATE

    My horse recently turned 17 and has always (the 3 years I've had him) coughed/cleared his throat as he warms up. It's usually more of a lowered heard snort type deal, like he's just cleaning out the...

    I don't think I ever had Olympic dreams. Maybe that hovered in the back of my mind, but I never really saw it as achievable (or something I really wanted to do). For me, horses is more about the...

    Yup, I'm of that opinion now too. It's weird though, because there are 20+ other horses at my barn (about 15 of which are outside 24/7) that LIVE in this same sheet and theirs seem to last. Live and...

    I need an INDESTRUCTIBLE sheet.

    Okay, I know that's not possible. But I would like something to last longer than a few months. Money isn't a problem; at this point I'm willing to spend what I need to in order to get something that...

    Horse 2 would place lower in my book. I'm no judge and I don't compete in hunters, but I would favor two iffy changes over a bunch of swaps. Plus if horse 1 generally had a smoother trip and better...

    My jumper is a hard-core trail horse! When I got him two years ago, he'd lived his life going from show to show and was pretty unflappable - until he got into open spaces. He'd look around with this...

    Soft Palate Swollen...?
