    I went from having 2 to having 1 and I really liked the extra time I was able to devote to a single riding horse. However, the companion pony didn't work out, so I re-homed him with a friend and just...

    Hey, I tried that same horse, BostonHJ, and he was really quiet. A bit green but I think he would be really easy to bring along. I almost bought him but found one I liked a little bit better that...

    They are very popular around here and bring a lot of money. My perch/paint cross is a bit sensitive, can be reactive, and took a while to gain his trust. But in his limited outings he has done quite...

    Lol, there is a point where sellers seem to start to take off inches, but I think it is 17.1 or above!

    I have looked at a couple of horses recently that were listed at 17 hands because I assumed...

    I think it is a very interesting example of how the brain works! But then I am a neuroscientist.

    It was interesting watching interviews on TV how some people reacted to the fact that others saw it...

    My vet would definitely do that. She always asks the price when she does a PPE for me. But if I use a strange vet for a PPE they have never asked me the price.

    I posted mine on my FB page and it sold immediately. And I don't have many friends!

    Maybe have a pro compete him a couple of times? You could probably get some good insight that way.

    I am 5'8" and all my recent horses have been ~16.2. That size just seems to be what I feel most comfortable on. I would not like anything taller! Also, I don't have to buy new blankets! It does make...

    Hey, at least he let you know. I had a farrier drop me several years ago by simply not showing up for an appointment and never responding to my phone calls!

    small bone chip--x-rays

    This showed up on the PPE. My vet can't look at them until tonight so I thought I would seek the collective experience of COTH while I am waiting. Attending vet was not alarmed. Chip is shown in...

    I've done it! Tossed some grimy old boots that I had to resurrect when I had a swollen ankle. And also a moldy girth. They turned out fine.

    He also looks quite asymmetric in front. It looks like he is filling out the saddle better on the right side than left. But it could be the angle of the pictures.

    Ah, Larry, you are bringing me down ;). Let me know if you get yours working. Meanwhile my neighbor is a plumber and I will ask him what implements he has that could help. He can at least probably...

    All of my horses have done that. I thought it was a tb thing but apparently not. Some bales they just won't touch.

    I tried a heating pad too! I think I am going to go out and buy some heat tape, unless I can get the head off. Thanks!

    Yeah, I thought if I heated it at the bottom it would warm the pipe up far enough down to melt the ice. I also poured hot water around it after I got the ground softened up, but no luck :(
  20. Tried to thaw hydrant with blow dryer--no luck. Heat gun?

    What next? I picked a warm day because I thought it would increase my likelihood of success. My blow dryer was a trooper though! I didn't think it would go that long.

    You could also try the eventing Facebook groups. I am sure there is an Area 1 page.

    Yes, Dutch Harness Horse. Sorry! I will be there for the vetting and I can certainly videotape. My vet has a really good eye for subtle lameness, so that is a good idea. I will be using him for LL...

    I do find the twist too wide in my TG saddle. I'm not sure what model it is, but it is probably about 10 years old, so more recent models could be totally different.

    What PPE x-rays on a 3.5 YO DHH cross?

    Horse is only in light work due to his age. I am having to use a strange vet because the horse is ~3 hrs away (he has a good reputation though so I am comfortable with him). I am planning to do front...
