    The kicking rings (or chains) work the same way as they do on the back. They slide up and down on the pastern with abrupt movement, landing on the coronet band with a mild "thunk" that is pretty...

    Please do not misconstrue my comment as sexist because I follow my own advice if I have a flat in a high risk area. But especially if there's no clear understanding of what is or is not safe to do in...

    It looks like you accidentally uncovered a NTW infestation while trying to treat the condition on the mare's face. Most horses with NTW do not present symptoms unless they are allergic to the larvae...

    Nobody brought up "loading" as an issue until YOU began to send it "arwy", ranting against something you anticipated would occur in this thread based upon experience elsewhere. IMO not helpful and I...

    You may be right. I've never seen a trailer tongue that had to be cut to accommodate stabilizing equipment. But I've been hauling professionally, CDL and livestock, for 37 years and would never ever...

    Jeez! Get a grip! Nobody who has posted in THIS thread has remotely suggested the OP's horse is a "bad loader". All the suggestions so far have been to improve or examine the horses' comfort while...

    You shouldn't have to cut or weld anything to get the trunion bar attachments on the trailer tongue. They bolt on. Some accurate heavy duty drilling is all that is required. The eTrailer site is a...

    Good suggestion. A sheet of highly polished aluminum should do the trick. Also, if the straight load GN has a movable or removable center divider, remove it and let your horse find his own comfort...

    Trail-et made a nice trailer but ran into the same problem as Hart and some others with the aluminum coachwork over steel frame construction; the insulating material that separated the two dissimilar...

    Please explain how you "removed" the offending brake. Completely removed the brake shoes? Cut the wire? Do you have brakes on all four (3 now) wheels or just brakes on 2 wheels of the same axle? What...

    There are a lot of well experienced members on this board who would invest the time to fix your horse. Unfortunately, you are the one who can't. There is no "silver bullet" you can use to suddenly...

    Sorry solo. At 8 MPG going from Florida to Idaho via I-95 and Raleigh is just a tad too far out of route to afford. How'd your Farm-warming go? ~FH

    Discontinue the daily beet pulp. It's high fiber and may may be sweeping the horses' gut clean before all the nutrients of his feed get absorbed. The human version would be like having a big glass of...

    Sounds like your tow vehicle brake light switch above the pedal that sends braking info to the controller is acting up. Also make certain the controller is level with the floor. Some have an inertia...

    Thanks for that review and the fairgrounds website tip! I added them to my list. And I like the sense of humor they have at Rawlins. You certainly covered a lot of ground daily on your trip. I'm...

    Hard to imagine a horse trailer window that can just "come out". A solid window? A drop-down? A slider? Trailer manufacturers seldom make their own window hardware. They mostly contract with...

    I'd stay away from importing anything edible. It probably won't make it through US Customs and introducing something foreign into your horses' digestive system could have bad results. A commemorative...

    When you get the fault turn on all the lights, do a walk-around and see what isn't working. Also pull forward slowly and manually apply only the trailer brakes with the electronic controller and see...
