I think its disrespectful of him to dive down and pull the leadrope away.
However, being the softy that I am, I would probably lead him out there and allow him to take a few bites, and then expect...
Sell mare and look for a different low-maintenance horse who can do competitive dressage.
I bet you love the pony just because he is so low-maintenance, but you may regret taking him on if you...
Everyone around here says it is the little gnats.
They are now also attacking the big horse.
Their sheaths, bellies, and undersides of their jaws get scabbed up in a day, even coated with fly...
I think I have a good instructor now, but I only see her for one hour per week. So I have questions in between lessons and I come here.
Also, there are times I just am not grasping a concept my...
I wasn't in Pony Club, so no log book. :winkgrin:
But in 1987 I know I paid:
$100/month for full care board
$40 for a full set of shoes
$12 for a trim
$15 per lesson
In 1984 I paid $25/month...
That loose rein canter is a beautiful feeling!! :cool:
Just be careful what you wish for.
My Saddlebred came with a stop-on-a-dime whoa.
Now I ride Dressage and I get dinged for "abrupt" halts. :sigh:
A friend of mine almost lost her dog to that situation.
It was actually the raccoon feces that was the culprit.
Did you see my TL2 score sheet from Saturday? :o
Literally, it said "tight in back" FOURTEEN TIMES. There were 4 other unrelated comments.
Yes, sadly, The Paddock Saddlery in Chagrin Falls, OH.
I show dressage and I pick based mostly on facilities.
I need a stall to show so I know my horse can be left unattended.
I need a warmup ring where I don't fear for my life.
This is my second year...
OF COURSE she is pregnant...she has a uterus! :rolleyes:
The Paddock, right in our neck of the woods.
Try to pick shows were the warmup facilities are adequate too.
There is one venue near me that I refuse to show at because the warmup ring is small and gets way overcrowded. It is dangerous!
I am guessing he knew how to lead, jsut chose not to. Sound familiar? :winkgrin:
I find when Hector gets stuck, that turning unlocks his front legs. I also am not above bribing with a tasty...
My donkey never sheds until July and then regrows his winter coat in August. Not kidding! And he tends to look a bit moth-eaten because he won't hesitate to scratch out any itchy spots. :sigh:
Hmmm - I saw little black bugs and I swear they looked just like fleas. Same size as fleas. Lots of little black dots too like "flea dirt". Must be some kind of flies, I guess.
I'll give a...
I was just working on de-shedding the pony and donkey, who both still have LOTS of winter hair.
I found bloody spots on both of them in the front "armpits" and by their...
I didn't say the BO would be gossiping about it.
I would ask how horse was and she would respond that he was feeling <X>. :confused:
Yep, I am butting out now.
And, HEY OWNER, IF YOU ARE...
She says he had routine shots, including Tetanus, two weeks ago.
His bad manners are all post-track artifacts from inexperienced handling.
He isn't evil, just would rather not and isn't made to...
I am really sorry - this did not come across the way I intended.
What I am trying to say is that he is not a fancy horse that people will pay her to take even if he's lame.
SHE is making him into...
Well, I went with a Stubben 1800 Passion in black with no flash.
It looks stunning on him!
I should get some pictures of him in it at our show...
I thought I was tactfully engaging her in a dialog via text messages, but it looks like I have pissed her off. When I asked who her vet is she stopped responding to my texts.
Against my better...
I just sent the boarder a text message to see how the horse is today. She says:
"great no limp even stood totally on that leg and pawd the ground with the other. swelling way down and some...
BO, friend, and I all told her what could happen and she cried and said she didn't have the money.
The horse is a disrespectful, dime-a-dozen OTTB, who has had no real training, but he doesn't...
