    Will also add that horses that are unsound (this horse appears to have a pretty big ankle) are at risk for this happening to them. The h/j barn likely thought they would give him a go and see how...

    Have a full-time job and on the side I do about 15 sales a year of quality tb's. That has always been my passion and it helps pay for my farm. I used to do more retraining but that takes up quite a...

    Yes, BFEN this summer has been brutal on feet. I have had more abscesses and bruises than I can remember. Even the horses with great feet are foot sore. Finally got some much needed rain.

    So glad...

    Placing poles help quite a bit but it's almost a bit of a mind game of just making yourself relax and wait for the horse to leave the ground. Super good for those of us who like to throw our...

    https://flic.kr/p/xjnmZsI think this picture shows his conformation..he just standing odd in the other one.

    Yes, he is one of mine. He has had two ultrasounds but is quite weak from being on rest and small paddock turnout. He has a big field but prefers his stall with a fan :) He also just got shoes on...

    I buy around 15 horses a year from the track and 90% are sight unseen. I rely on good connections with various trainers. I do resale so it is important to have connections I can trust at various...

    After my divorce, I just wanted to get out and about and meet some friends. Wasn't necessarily interested in anything serious but though casual dates would be fun. I actually like online dating...

    I guess I don't necessarily buy that horses don't like dressage. All I do is restart and reschool Tb's and boy have I had some really tough horses come in that were adverse to the contact in a...

    That all sounds very fixable especially if you have a good farrier that can deal with the feet. When feet improve the rest of the body improves. Diet changes and ulcer meds can fix the stomach as...

    It all depends on how long the chip was left in there and what kind of damage was done. It would also depend on where the chip was as some chips are not in the joint and tend to not bother them but I...

    I did the initial retraining on Areutrue and he was absolutely lovely and one of the easier horses that I have had come through the barn. Retired off track at age 7 and was very sound. He was a...

    Sort of funny now but wasn't funny at the time. I got divorced when ex left me for someone that posts here on COTH and was a supposed friend who rode at my barn for a year. I had kept the married...

    There will be another woman involved for sure. A good lawyer will advise on what she is eligible to have in the divorce. She will be entitled to health benefits, money from military pension and can...

    I would want the xrays to be clean indicating no chips or spurs. I am good with set osselets since they look ugly but don't affect performance. Without xrays it is just hard to know the full picture.

    I don't think $7500 is unreasonable at all for a horse with quality mileage in a variety of disciplines that is relatively sound and is not a TB. Yes, I just said not a TB but honestly there are some...

    I likely would just invest it and work a bit less so that I could enjoy taking a lot of lessons again. I really like my life just the way it is and I have little debt except my mortgage. As the money...

    One of the most challenging parts of working with ottb's is that sometimes you discover they do have injuries that will restrict their ability to have useful careers. I believe your character is...
