    Words from other horse people bring me comfort. I usually keep my parents apprised of farm happenings but I just can't concede this one yet. They really went above and beyond for him (and me)...

    Goodbye dear friend

    Tomorrow will be the end of a big era in my life. I made the decision to euthanize my dear old man.

    He was the most beautiful foal I had ever seen. He was destined for the track, but his breeder...

    This really surprises me except maybe you aren't around competent hunter riders?

    And LongTimeLurker, you may be new but I think I love you.

    This would be my concern, as well. I hope for the horse's sake it lands in a good long term situation. I also hope the owner is OK. Good for your BO for taking good care of the horse in this odd...

    Sorry but I have the feeling that you are using this as a back door way because you are annoyed? peeved? disagree? with the gay rights issue, as you keep bringing it up. I am sure there are other...

    In reference to the bolded part, not necessarily. It actually can disrupt a well oiled machine having a boarder come in and want to do things their way, on their time schedule. At least in the type...

    I own a mare out on lease who is the same. She likes the busy busy and acts like an old schoolmaster at the show.

    " I suck............still."

    Of course, if it is someone who is really interested, I would say because I am always learning, even pros take lessons and my young horse needs it.

    But usually,...

    Dover made everything right, no muss, no fuss. I don't really understand why someone would expect a discount on shipping. It wasn't that egregious of an error. It isn't like the ON fee was paid and...

    Ebay has overstock items, some are brand new. Just saying.

    There are hard keepers. There are easy keepers. Much like people. Difference is people generally have the choice on how to feed themselves to maintain weight.

    My horse would then "test" positive for meth, I've had one of those months with her.

    My daughter, though we show hunters, joined Pony Club and they require a vest because they go on the cross country course. Our local horse park requires one to use the jumps cross country. I had to...

    Agreed. Horse isn't a match for the rider or perhaps his current job. If Horse 2 (not the young one) has the same issues, you either have the worst luck or it is you. Not every horse is destined to...

    I'm so sorry this happened. My homebred first got an infection in her spleen 2 years ago. Recovered from that (amazingly) then this summer sliced her back cannon down to the bone. Never figured out...

    An additional thought, OP, take this from someone who works from home as I choose AND has a farm: your remote work status does not equal time to work at the farm. It saves commute time and provides...

    Yes. Stall and feed alone on yours is $1000. In my area (Indianapolis) that is more than nice A barns. On the coast $1000 is closer to the norm for top facilities.

    350 for a stall
    750 for fee, stalls turn out ($25/day)
    30 for shavings ~ 6 a week depending on turn out and that's LOW if they are in
    Plus hay
    Plus a general maintenance

    I don't think that's...

    Whenever I drive to Warrenton or through VA, I look at all the horses out in fields in the heat of summer, swishing their tails and get thoroughly PISSED at my horses.

    Mine are not acclimated to...

    Incompetent is a little harsh, to be honest. More of a frustration vent :)

    thanks for not getting offended and taking as it was intended. :)
    Any chance someone can get video of him while you are on him?
    I think you are wise to be asking for advice/help etc.
    Good luck...

    Just a few random thoughts:

    1. Is it really bucking? An old boarder kept telling me how her horse was bucking in the corners or on the flat. I always thought it odd, because I knew her since she...
