    I agree with Kyzteke. I would be seriously, seriously considering putting the horse on a trailer back to the seller and "figuring things out later." Consider the fact that you have a 5 year old horse...

    For the person who asked what needles to use, you can go to Walmart or Michael's (or Hobby Lobby) and get what is called a "yarn needle." They are large, blunt needles that have eyes big enough for...

    Well, it looks like she is eating. It could very well be that the mare is just plain painfully hungry, and isn't passing anything because she isn't eating anything. Certainly if she was in pain she...

    Even better, put in a closed jar with a marble in it and shake. The marble gives the butter something to form around, so it works much faster.

    I'm going to be the odd person out and say that if you are sliding your outside leg back with any kind of pressure, you are actually *asking* your horse to throw its haunches in. Lots, and lots, and...

    Hi there,
