    uphill, if I knew where the old owner was it wouldn't be pretty LOL Debbie won't tell me where he lives either. His feet have had pretty much zero growth, so she is giving it a few more weeks before...

    One life saved is better than none!

    The guy who Oliver was purchased from sent Debbie a message trying to adopt Sasha, claiming he has a horse rescue.. Apparently he didn't remember Debbie's whole...

    You probably have then!

    Oliver is doing SO well. He's really attached himself to Sasha, a little QH mare that was literally dropped off at Debbie's by a guy on a late night.
    I took a video and...

    Oh wow, super small world!! I'm out there every Sunday around 12:30 or 1 giving lessons. Other times just depends on work. Debbie is pretty much always there unless she's working, she has to go out...

    Oliver last night, 5/3. He hung out with me and my husband while we were standing in the barn talking. It seems like he'll have a really sweet personality.

    Oliver is doing SO much better! Even feeling good enough to make faces at his donkey friend when it's feeding time. He lost a good amount of hair across is back due to rain rot, and with applying MTG...

    Small update: Oliver is already looking better. No photos though, as Debbie wants to wait until he is 2 weeks in so the difference is really noticeable. His eyes are brighter, and he's becoming very...

    I know the vet office doesn't take paypal but they do take cards. I'll post up what the bill will be when it's available. Most likely he will need ulcer meds, which is $175 for a month supply. ...

    Per Debbie, the farrier said his feet are actually good so the weight loss must have been rapid instead of gradually happening. He did get a trim and was a good boy for it.

    I'm not sure if my area is deficient in selenium or not, I'll start researching that tonight.
    He is never stalled. He has access to hay at all times, but all that grows in this area is coastal...

    I may try the selenium to see if it makes a difference. Over the summer his level of irateness about being touched stayed pretty much the same, not worsening until his winter coat grew in. His...
  21. Older TB gelding does not like being touched

    I have a 22 year old TB who seems to be highly sensitive to touching/brushing. I got him at the end of April 2012, and from day one he would always pin his ears during a grooming session, even with a...

    I will try with double reins first. I'm looking for a new saddle as well, so I'd like to see if something I already have will do the trick before I invest in something else. It's not so much that he...

    I love CANTER. I've seen several nice looking, smaller sized TBs on there for $500-1000. I'm working with an OTTB now who would make a fantastic lesson horse in a couple years. He is so willing and...

    I like jn4jenny's explanation. I'm only 5'5", but I'm all leg with a short torso. I feel "squished" in anything under a 17.5" seat.
