    I had a neighbor who was supersmart.

    I was constantly amazed that she managed to make it across the street to get her mail without being run over.

    The most gullible, naive, easily scammed...

    Whoever did wardrobe design for Tacky had way, way too much fun with it. :lol:

    What about leasing a trail/pleasure type for awhile? A horse you can just get on and do what you please, with zero owner expectation of you taking lessons during the lease.

    Because halter people don't care, and will buy N/H babies and breed to a N/H stallion as readily as they would to a N/N one if the horse is/is producing what they want.

    I know halter breeders who...

    I still get incredible bargains off eBay, you just have to know what you want and be patient. Anytime you're dealing with individual people, you're going to get a mixed bag of...

    If you're dallying the lead rope around the horn, ponying in anything but a saddle made for roping and/or ranch work is asking for trouble. The horn can get ripped right off anything less than that.

    I would just block the spouse from seeing the pics. You can do custom privacy settings so spouse and only spouse is blocked.

    I would probably just block the spouse totally from your FB,...

    I had a yearling get his stifles hooked on the top row off a 5' pipe fence. He could just barely reach the ground with his front toes. I have no idea how the hell he managed it. His hind end was...

    There's always something that can go wrong. No procedure is risk-free. Not for our animals, not for us.

    Though, I don't worry about the boys much. The odds are in my favor that they'll have an...

    I have one mostly white tobiano. He's got a half-covered pipe stall, and he usually eschews the shelter in favor of standing in full sun. Only once have I ever had any issues with sunburn - a little...

    It's superstition over subjectively interpreted markings. If you had 10 photos and showed them to 10 people I'd bet no single horse would get full agreement over whether it is/isn't a medicine hat. ...

    There are a TON of people selling woo woo magikal health/weight loss BS on the FB forums I frequent. I'm starting to wonder if it's a requirement now that when you sign up for some snake oil pyramid...

    I hate going places with minimum payers. I always feel obligated to make sure the waitstaff doesn't get screwed, which at times had resulted in me tipping more than the total cost of my bill to make...

    I think Parelli is a snake oil salesman. I also think some people wade into the crazy pool themselves with how vehemently they hate Parelli.

    I don't see the Parelli-ittes doing any more damage...

    I've got a few 'always 5 min late' coworkers, and I don't think it has anything to do with "kids these days". Only one is under 30, and she's hardly the worst offender.

    Some people have absolute...

    If you don't like it, don't give him money.

    There are probably more somewhat scandalous gofundme pages than legit ones. Lots and lots to get upset about if people asking for money bugs you. ;)

    Everything G said, x 100. That's how I do. Takes longer than screwing with the feet or slapping a shanked bit on them, but it gives you a better horse in the end.

    I also like Anita Howe.

    I don't think they harm the horse, but I sure as hell wouldn't want any of mine started that way.

    I've known a couple horses who were used in the competitions, and they came home about as broke...

    He does it because he has really shitty conformation. The fact he's TWH and some of his worst traits are deliberately selected for by some doesn't make it any less shitty conformation. None of my...

    I would not get on the horse without a contract that clearly states expectations and whose liable for what. Your state may have liability laws, but those probably don't cover what happens when Pookie...

    My newest TWH ropewalks so bad, when I met him I joked that if the bridge at the local park ever went out, all I had to do was lay a 2 x 4" down and I could ride across it no problem. He's 13 and...

    It reminds me of the "Stops Colic" and "Equine Colic Relief" products I keep seeing people on FB rave about, that are the same type of woo-woo snake oil junk.
