    Another one for just raise the board. Give 30-90 days notice in a letter.

    Just add $20 or $30 /month for blanketing. $5/per is pretty steep and some major nickel- diming. I'm good with a...

    I bought mine that way. Until the hoof was resected, it looked pretty normal. The situation wasn't great, but not nearly as bad as the average internet busybody would postulate.

    I recall a local effort when I was in high school to set standards of care for the 4 local carriage horses. It was a thinly veiled attempt by one business to put another out of business.

    I wouldn't care if I pissed off the neighbor. He should be worried about pissing off you.

    Take your dog to the vet, call animal control make a complaint.

    I had a mare like the OP's horse. Her problem was the barn staff. BO let her get away with murder; his wife on the other hand would thump on her & she didn't pull the same nonsense.

    How she...

    What is the situation? Too many times people are looking for legal recourse against care that is *different* than theirs, but not necessarily abuse.

    Think about the folks in Illinois, I think,...

    That could happen with ANY horse, even a saint. It was a possibility when the previous owner sold the mare to the OP. If the OP's financial picture hasn't improved, significantly, she needs to grow...

    I'd leave the mare where she is. You found a taker for a difficult horse. Yay for you!

    The only onload/offload points are Lorton, VA & Sanford, Fl. There are other stations on the route, but those are only ones capable of transferring autos.

    Lorton is about 2-2.5 hours south of...

    I don't. I really couldn't live someplace where the monthly rent is less than board at a halfway decent barn. Methinks if there were something to do, OP would have less time to mind everyone else's...

    I had one similar to that, that I retired about the same age. She was a sounder though. I probably could have sold her, but I didn't want her to hurt anyone; she could be a real witch. I gave her...

    I grew up in the Midwest, but had a native Philly/South Jersey speaker at home. I could never figure out the proper pronunciation/accents on many words - it sounded right which ever you sounded it...

    The military does, or did, 5 year physicals. Some annual stuff, i.e. flu shot, but not a full physical w/blood work, etc. every year.

    Unless you can get hold of a couple pounds of caffeine, I'd sell her. Start her basic WTC & move her on.

    The registration headache would seal the deal for me. If the girl friend thinks your...

    I always wonder about the claim that household chemicals are "safer" weed killers. Acetic acid (vinegar) and calcium hypochlorite (bleach) are no joke. They work wonders because they are nasty,...

    Really? You can't imagine spending $1000/year & you have a chronic pain doctor? I was in the same practice, it not a problem wracking up medical bills. A shot a cortisone + trigger points...

    A good steak, asparagus, mixed 'shrooms some good bread, $6 bottle of wine. Unfortunately, I probably won't have the grill fixed by then.:cry:

    Since no family is within miles, I don't have to...

    Helloooo, That's saddleseat!:lol: A lot of times, it's not even in a circle, just up & down an aisleway.

    I'm perfectly happy doing endless trips up and down straightaway in pursuit of the perfect...

    Given the tantrum Obama threw when Netanyahu got reelected, it wouldn't be too hard to see him doing something this petty & vindictive.

    This is so true. When I worked in Newport News, VA, I often had to walk a half dozen blocks to go to another building. New News is a bit rough. Better since the crack house tenements were turned...

    Really it is. Ever see a painting of Bedouins running through the sand with their horses' heads down?

    I grew up around Arabs. Knew several people who bred them, went to lots of shows. Up-headed...

    Do you have a shoe repair store local? Pretty sure they can do what you want. I had a strip mall shoe repair guy fix my crappy set of harness multiple times, no big deal.

    If the kid is riding once a week - 2 falls in a month is every other lesson. After 4 years of riding, that's a lot. Many people can ride weekly and not fall off every other ride. I've ridden...

    If the trainer didn't tell them to move on, she'd be bad-mouthed for continuing to take the Mom's $$ even though the kid should be playing tennis. No win situation.
