    "You would think, though, in light of that she would have maybe scrubbed her horses water trough? Just once? Came out after crap weather and cleaned her own horses' stall? Came out when it was cold...

    Aw. You guys are a tough crowd. Seriously, none of you did this when you were kids, or adult kids? We all did this when I was a young rider; we thought we were almost as good as circus performers...

    I find the biggest "learning curves" are related to 1) how quickly I can safely and comfortably stop the trailer on a downhill, as in, I come over a hill and there's a red light, or I come over the...

    Depending on what other demands your life puts on you (work, family, commute, financial, etc.), it might be interesting to look at some more experienced horses too. With a more experienced horse,...

    Shoot! I did it again! The really good mashed-potato pot is at the barn. (So is the Dreampot).

    However, this year, I am aware of the problem before it becomes a problem. There is plenty of time...

    My horse is the same. She can be pissy and pokey at the walk and trot, but once we start cantering and she works out the cobwebs, she doesn't want to stop cantering. I'm going to listen to the OP's...

    OP, I feel your pain and "get" your dream, as it is mine own as well. However, I have had to accept that it will only be a fantasy. I'm also starting a new job and the time commitment right now is...

    "BO and BW, Horse and I are really enjoying it here. But, I have to confess that I am feeling uncomfortable with cigarette smoking in the barn. I have been trained to think of it as a huge fire...

    Maybe it's helpful to think of the horses' time with you as simply one stage. They were somewhere before this life; they will be somewhere in the next stage. Maybe their ancestors are lined up on...

    Go, Puddin Pie's horse! It ain't over till it's over! :-)

    Geriatric check-up

    If one were to ask one's vet for a "geriatric check-up" on their senior horse, who just seems to not have her old spunk and seems to maybe be continuing to lose weight despite supplemental feeding,...

    You did the right thing. To not have offered help would have been unacceptable. While in this case the gentleman in the wheelchair preferred not to acknowledge your help, and the man behind you was a...

    Just one other perspective on energizer horses -- appreciate it! :-) FWIW, my horse is slowing way down on the trail (she's coming up on 25). She is the perfect horse no matter what, but, part of...

    Avoid fleece -- on you, on your horse, on your gloves - whenever possible. Wool seems better, when it comes to static. If I'm wearing fleece, things start snapping before I even seem to touch her.

    You could head west on Route 2. There are, I think, two H/J barns in Sudbury, about 35 minutes from Arlington: Blue Meadow and NorthGate. In Concord, there is Verrell Farm Stables. In Bolton, near...

    Bluejen,
    Awww. :-) That picture just activated my "holiday season brain."

    If it worked, it worked! :-)

    I would have been put off by how long the ad was, and by how much of it was humorous. A sentence or two of humor is great, but this much was just too much like you...

    I know it makes you a better rider to ride different horses, but, ain't nobody getting up in my crotch except my one and only. :-) For me personally, so much of it is about my relationship with...

    No. I have never questioned my sanity re: horses. This is because I already know that everything to do with recreational horses is crazy. :-)

    It is an either/or thing. Either you (painfully) pay...

    The most abusive thing about blanketing is the smell of sweaty, mare-pee'd, poop-rolled-in blankets in the back of your warm car en route to being washed. Definitely, definitely cruel. :-)

    8 am to 9 pm on weekdays, 9-5 on weekends, with flexibility for shows, caring for an injured horse, etc. I would love it if the barn could be open one hour later, as most nights I can't get there...

    I expect a horse that expensive to experience a career-ending injury -- suffered while standing quietly alone in a lovely safe stall/paddock -- the day after he arrives.
