    I have one horse that was difficult for farriers. Would snatch his leg away. My current farrier intuitively knew just how to hold his leg and has no problem with the horse. Be sure you try...

    When you lay it flat, say on a table, the link is tilted. Does the high side go toward the ears or toward the...

    Nick. I am going to use it to rinse the top of their tails. I think they are sunburned there, but slathering on sunscreen does not seem to stop rubbing.

    I really don't enjoy having to hit my horses. And agree that using your hands to their face becomes a game.

    I had a very mouthy nosey youngster. He would purse his lips while you led him, just...

    I show in the Treadstep Raphael, which is their dress boot. I love them. So much easier to wipe clean than field boots. Don't see the point of laces now that we have zippers, and like the dressier...

    Altitude Rider, hoping for a quick recovery for Cody! It is here in Texas too, and I inspect my horses' mouths at least several times a day! What were the initial signs for your horse?

    Another big thumbs up for the Higher Standards balm after tack is clean.

    For cleaning, it depends on the tack and how dirty.

    I typically clean bridles with diluted Murphey's from a spray...

    Exactly Texarkana. I have a 17 year old that is borderline sound on his RF. He has very crooked legs. Pronounced medial lateral imbalance. Shoes give him corns, but he does not have the best feet...

    Have an old Vespucci monocrown, love the monocrown but hate the noseband. Bought cob sized Wellfleet on sale, love the wide noseband and the browband. Two bridles for parts = one nice bridle!

    Just a tip, for those of you getting o/s, you can always find shorter cheekpieces. I do that all the time for my smallish headed horses ... buy a horse bridle and use cob cheekpieces.

    When I had Simon, he was really itchy. Rubbed part of his mane off, and rubbed himself raw in little places on his neck. I finally put a fly sheet on him, figuring any discomfort from heat was...

    My horse is difficult to keep sound on his RF. I worry constantly, and imagine he feels off. But he does great in his hack classes, so lots of judges think he looks ok.
