    She's getting around 1.5 pounds of grain per day. How much does she weigh? You would be much better off nutritionally to feed her a ration balancer like Triple Crown 30%. She would only need to...

    While there is some value of having a "sleepsalot" type of horse in a lesson string, I find horses like that incredibly frustrating to ride. I have no desire to constantly beg/nag a horse to...

    I don't know why carrot stretches and other ground exercises to work his topline and abdominals hadn't occurred to me. Thank you to those who suggested those methods! They are definitely something I...

    I'm with you. Unless this horse is the second coming of Secretariat...

    There is a difference between "high spirited" and dangerous. This horse is dangerous, and he is a HUGE liability for both you...

    Ditto. I don't think I've ever seen a pair of English spurs that would fit over half chaps. The branches of your spurs must be MUCH wider than mine!

    It's funny you should say that, because the vet asked the same thing this spring when he did Montana's teeth. He was convinced that Montana was 25, not 20. But I have his papers, have owned him for...

    Everything that JB and Flash44 said! Odd are that switching her grain for TC 30% (or Lite if she needs closer to 3 lbs of feed than 1-2) will ensure that you are meeting her basic vitamin, mineral,...

    I'm well aware of the seasonal rise in ACTH levels. My point was that this horse's levels have been tested since the lameness started. Our new vet (I just moved) was out today to give fall vaccines...

    As another poster mentioned, research has shown that horses on 24/7 pasture maintain a fitness level equivalent to that of a stalled horse in light exercise - which, let's be honest, is all that most...

    I'm a college football girl, myself. As a born-and-bred Tennessean (Go Vols!) with a degree from Kentucky (C-A-T-S!) who just started working at Auburn (War Eagle!), I anticipate lots of divided...

    When I go to that website and look at their jeans, all I can find are skinny jeans - which no one my size, IMO, should ever wear. And when I try to filter them by length, the only option that shows...

    I used Wrangler as an example, but the same applies to all jeans (and dress pants, for that matter) equally. When I was a size 4/6, "short" or "petite" length jeans fit me just fine. Most of the...

    Jean shopping is an absolute nightmare for me. Here is my question for clothing manufacturers:

    If the average height of U.S. women is 5'4", WHY is that height considered "short" for clothing...

    He is not laminitic. The lameness blocks to the LH suspensory (positive on LH fetlock flexions), but all x-rays and ultrasounds have been perfectly normal. So, we know where he is lame but not why,...

    Peter Wylde just put on a clinic about how a hunter should be ridden and presented. What a lovely round!

    USHJA website now says that the challenge round won't start until 3:45 EST. I don't know what keeps rolling the time back, but apparently (hopefully?) we aren't missing anything...

    Then you haven't been to enough country fair shows. Nothing acclimates a horse to insanity quite as quickly as an "exotic animal" petting zoo, a Ferris Wheel, and a demolition derby all in the same...

    My semi-retired horse gets a bareback or walk/trot trail ride once every 3-4 months. He'd prefer to be in a more consistent routine, but his body doesn't agree, unfortunately.

    Or the handler (not accustomed to equine body language/"natural" horsemanship principles) is stepping in front of the horse's center of balance and inadvertently stopping the horse. I see this time...

    Did anyone else think that the Santos character/storyline was an eerie foreshadowing of the first Obama campaign?

    And, yes, when John Spencer died, I was completely out of sorts for weeks. Every...

    I have no advice but plenty of sympathy for you, OP. I tried to preempt the grief by buying a young horse when my first/"heart" horse started to age. My "young" horse is 8 years old now, and my heart...
