    I rinse my bits off after every ride, so gunk doesn't have a chance to build up.

    I really only clean bridles when the dried sweat builds up to an overwhelming level, which this time of year is...

    I think Nutrena's ProForce line is available in GA? The Senior is pretty similar to Triple Crown and the Fiber also seems like a good option. I've heard good things from people using the Fiber on...

    Nutella is okay, but it's really candy filling. Justin's chocolate hazelnut butter actually has more nuts than sugar and is out of this world!

    Why would you want to spend $1165 on a stiff, squeaky new saddle when you can have it for $850 all nicely broken in? Irons are $30 assuming they're not giving you HS jointed stirrups with the new...

    Honestly, someone who needs to bring their coach out and do an extensive PPE before buying a (presumably unstarted) 2-year-old raises big flapping red tire-kicker flags to me.

    It looks like he had a good year in 2012, in fact I remember those who support his continued campaigning coming back after his win at the Fork ** rather smugly as if it proved that everything with...

    So how did this person come to own the mare in the first place? Was she in foal at the time? Because I would be very surprised if someone ignorant and lazy enough to leave a colt on its dam for 4...

    Nice to "meet" you properly! Very interesting to read in your blog of horsey culture shock - I love your description of Hunterworld. ;)

    mellsmom - BOTH parents have to be approved with a registry for the offspring to be eligible for registration. So if Deovolente wasn't approved ISR/OLD NA or AWS, those registries aren't options.

    Yay! Good for you for showing that bank what the deal is.

    I love your mare's expression as she's figuring it out, by the way. Gorgeous.

    Lippizaner x Orlov Trotter. Cute but, according to my friend who has the "privilege" of exercising him, moves like a pogo stick in rigor mortis.

    All else being equal (when is it ever?) registration would certainly be a point in favor. I bought a mare last year who I would never have found or known about if not for who her sire is and the...

    How much of the Empower Balance was/is he getting? I ask because you mentioned increasing it. In actuality, he shouldn't be getting more than 1 pound twice a day. Seriously. That type of product...

    Hay, hay pellets, and a ration balancer aren't going to be enough for most TBs. They really do better with a significant fat source. Lose the Empower (and probably some of the hay pellets) and...

    Nutrena only has one ration balancer: Empower Balance, which would provide a lot of the protein, vitamins, and minerals that it sounds like he isn't currently getting.

    But seriously ... what do...

    Per your post, he gets quite a lot of beet pulp, as well as timothy and alfalfa hay. yet his "feed" is nothing more than beet pulp, timothy, and alfalfa hay with enough fat added to bring it up to 6...

    You all realize that there's no point whatsoever in arguing with someone who thinks that only Grand Prix showjumpers are sporthorses? Because galloping for 4-5 miles over 30+ moderately large solid...

    Ditto. Constantly asking for a little more, a little more, ad nauseam is easy for a lazy horse to tune out. If one gentle use of leg gets you nothing, dial it up to 10 and kick him hard, adding...
