    I wouldn't get too excited - Horseware is typically excluded from most Black Friday-type sales. If you've found one where it's not, please share a link!

    I would expect a proven Novice/Training horse to run you in that neighborhood honestly, unless it's MUCH older. Like 18+. A TB long off the track, QH, or draft cross who's maybe been a kid's horse...

    I always add water to my horses' feed, let it sit (or use hot water) and serve it as a mash - not a soup, given that they just make a mess of it that way and my gelding will tip his feed pan over if...

    I have the Crowne Pro with zippers, and had the same problem with them cutting VERY uncomfortably into the back of my knee at first. Once they broke in, they dropped more than an inch and it's no...

    Of course, but I don't think the OP said her horse is IR/PSSM/etc. And really, what proportion of the general equine population falls into that category vs. people who have it in their heads that...

    I guess it depends on how you define "low" NSC. Low as opposed to the 40-50% of 20 years ago and of most low-mid range commercial mixes today? Or as low as possible, i.e. TC Senior at 11%? ...

    The Sentinel LT has the corn distillers dried grains but not straight corn. If you're trying to stay away from the stuff, I'd be careful about the Nutrena Proforce Senior. There's no ingredient...

    I feed it to my barn cat (would feed it to a house cat if I had one) - fed TOTW in the past but switched when we got a TSC due to the price break and she doesn't seem to have suffered for the change....

    Why don't people just read the feed bag? If the bag says your horse (say 800 lbs) in light work should be getting, at minimum, 4 pounds per day, it shouldn't take the horse losing weight for you to...

    Minimum from a nutrient standpoint, yes, and what the company's rep advised the OP to feed based on her horse's description. And she also said that she'd probably increase after a few weeks? At any...

    I thought the OP said on page 3 she's going to start the horse on 6 lbs of Triple Crown Low Starch? That certainly sounds like a big step in the right direction to me. Sure, TC Senior is higher in...

    Stay far, far, away from the OTTB Connect Facebook page if you want to retain even a shred of faith in humanity.

    Why are you worried about some mythical "bond" silliness when it sounds like the horse lacks basic ground manners? A partnership with a horse takes a lot longer than three weeks to develop, and if...

    You got Mark Jumps! Congrats! I was drooling over him when he was posted on the eventing forum.

    It sounds like you have the forage baseline down, but 12 quarts of grain is A LOT and probably...

    Mark Jumps? Oh I just bet he does .... though I can't believe he couldn't run with that pedigree. Good. Night.

    Proud Jared and Saratoga Blitz are also quite appealing.

    I don't think you can judge much about his movement from that video, given that he's rather amped up and the grass is obscuring his legs a bit.

    If he were, say, free or under $2K (and it sounds...

    Yikes. Yes, you've been royally screwed over. What kind of contract do you have regarding the horse's ownership, i.e. what does the 1/4 ownership entitle the trainer/her mother to in terms of use...

    Also, he would only be eligible for GOV registration if the dam were approved with the GOV. Just because she was branded Oldenburg as a foal doesn't mean she's been inspected and approved.

    Is the OP in the US? The language doesn't scream American teenager to me. Nor does the timestamp on the post.

    What does "not handled" mean, exactly? Halter broken and not much else? Is it common in Europe for youngsters to be semi-feral?
