    Other nerdy suggestions:

    Artoo/R2
    Wedge

    I'm 2 weeks into a ~2 month break from riding due to an injury (mine, not horse's).

    I've had a number of offers from people who would help me keep my horses going. Several have been from...

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one that's been "had" by the loose girth, full body shake combo! :)

    I agree that the description of the #1 horse as an unraced TB was a bit misleading. His 1/4 WB breeding suggests that he was bred with sport rather than speed in mind and the TBs close up in his...

    My most embarrassing incident happened last week and resulted in a displacement fracture of my fibula (6-8 weeks recovery time :( )

    spacytracy - if someone approached me about the small pony I have for sale right now in the way you purchased your most recent pony, I would definitely be negotiable if the situation seemed a good...

    That's kind of hilarious actually. I didn't realize that promising to be a good home was necessary for tack purchases :P

    Ugh. Yes - why should the value of my item be lower simply because the potential buyer's budget is low?

    I've currently got a lovely small pony prospect for sale. He jumps around little courses...

    This drives me nuts too and I'm someone who does own horses on a small/limited budget that I manage carefully in order to ensure they are well cared for. Their basic care and any vet expenses come...

    I'm too am confused by Jumper Bump's wish that in the scenario described with a new vet being called in to euthanize there were more questions asked before euthanizing the horse. What would the...

    I am also submitting an e-mail to SmartPak. Of his sponsors, they are the only company I am currently purchasing from (not the SmartPaks, but I have been a fan of their line of tack and apparel)....

    Hi ladymcts, this is your pony riding friend who went to the clinic with you. Fun to "meet" you here too!

    I was similarly disgusted and can verify that ladymcts' account is quite accurate. I'd...

    I do not think this is a pony that anyone will pay to lease. I'm a small adult who rather enjoys riding naughty ponies and if this pony was local to me and presented a good (free) riding opportunity...

    I would also say check for the obvious yourself (bean, any other visible problems that would cause discomfort) and then call the vet.

    If there is no problem (as evaluated by the vet) then I would...

    Since it seems you have access to the Tribute feeds, could you switch to the Tribute Kalm Ultra? At 12% fat, that would be my choice from that line of products for a horse that needs to gain weight....

    If the horse is a total slob (as the big TB I sold earlier this year is) then the small hole hay nets can be a life saver and encourage them to eat more. This particular gelding wouldn't eat the hay...

    Revolver - that is a good point and certainly true in my area too. The $1500 beginner horse is going to require trying several-many horses who are NOT as advertised (often they are shorter, older,...

    My suggestion would also be to network like crazy through word of mouth. Vet, farrier, feed store, local tack shop, etc. are all good places to start.

    If you are friendly with and like the girl, a thoughtful card would be a nice gesture.

    And I would agree with you that the situation is likely more telling of the person who initiated the request.
