    Lending out trailers

    OK, I have a dilemma, and the H/J forum is the one I know best, so posting here for advice/support. I'll try to keep it short, so some details may be left out. Basically, my husband was out at out...

    My first thought when I saw the pictures was actually that it looked synthetic, so yes, I would get a new one just because I personally hate synthetic saddles. But I also thought that you looked...

    Haha, well his little paddock is already tiny, and he does have a mini donkey sharing it. It is was truly the perfect set up before the heavy rains encouraged all the grass growth through late June!...

    Just an update, the vet confirmed it was a very mild laminitic episode and she praised me over and over for catching it early and treating it right away(muzzle & bute). She said no need for any...

    I pay about a third of what you do to board at a barn without a trainer and our stalls are meagerly bedded, every horse gets a max of 2 flakes of hay each feeding, and a crappy 10% sweet feed is the...

    Hopefully you already got a stall for the day. Even though Pony Jumpers run on one day, it's hard if not impossible to work off your trailer there. Also, try to prepare for the lights and the...

    Thank you for the vote of encouragement:) To answer your questions, I will have to look into a farrier but I believe that it is much closer for my old farrier (who dropped our barn because of...
  11. Have any H/J riders had success boarding at a facility with no ring?

    I just heard of a situation today that might allow a great field boarding opportunity with a large run-in shed plus storage barn with running water and electricity, but no ring. I might be able to...

    The first thought that came to my mind was David Raposa's barn in Clinton at what was formerly White Fox Farm under his mother, but it looks like Clinton is 2 hours from Ithaca and it's not 100%...

    Hi, Furlong:) Glad you found your package at least! So here's the deal, not to keep this post about the post office unecessarily dragging on, but to let others know to be on the alert if they...

    Well, my update isn't a good one:( Mail carrier is back on duty today, and told the post office manager that he left it right at the front door. Not sure why the front door all a sudden after years...

    Funny! I don't know of any dogs that are allowed to run loose in our neighborhood though. But I did send my husband home early today to go looking around neighbors porches to see if anyone maybe...

    I can pull up the tracking report on the USPS website, and it says delivered at 15:28:00 on April 6, 2013. This mail carrier usually leaves packages on our side porch, which is not visible from the...

    Thanks for the tip, TheJenners!
    I did e-mail Victory Canter and asked if they insure their packages, but for now the response was to check with the post office and see if it turns up but keep them...

    I was super excited to find myself a pair of Romfh Wellington Side Zip Euro Seat breeches, beige, in just my size (32 long) on sale at Victory Canter last week for only $60.00!!! So I ordered that...

    I have the dark grey Horze Silvia denim, and the material is similar to a mid-quality stretch jean you'd find in a clothing store. It's a durable weight, but not super soft, which makes me think it...

    Wow, interesting. That's why it's always a good idea to get that 2nd or 3rd opinion from a non-partial vet or trainer. I hope things start improving for him. And there are plenty of barns out...
