    One thing I'd like to find is a small set pretty but not overly blingy or conspicuous pins to hold numbers in place on a show coat. Something goes straight through and are locked from inside the...

    Personally, as the Owner of the horse in questions, I probably would have ripped the trainer a new one right then and there. Really surprised the owner let it go at the time and then followed up...

    Rico stopped sweating for a few years. Guiness, which was recommened by my vet, helped some, but taking him off BP based feed has made a real difference. He still sweats lightly, but at least he...

    Look into Maryland facilities - usually more bang for the buck. What type of riding do you want the pony trained for?

    Vets are too expensive and important to your horse's care to put up with one who's judjement that you don't trust. Time for a change.

    When I can find good horse quality rounds in winter, I grab them. I use the big bale buddy, and will cover at with a tarp/bugees at night if we're expecting heavy rain or snow. I usually go for the...

    Both! Short, purposeful, quality lunge sessions combined with light riding sessions, on alternate days to begin, and then together after the first few weeks. Decrease lunging as riding times...

    Its very possible the short notice from the BO may be due to a recent injury on the part of the BO, or alternative arrangements for the care falling through. Sounds like the BO is trying very hard...

    Thank you everyone.

    Truly, I'm not expecting this to be an epic adventure novel. Probably will be more along the line of the Chicken Soup short stories - profiling non famous people who have...

    Thanks all! I may need to ping COTHERS for 'case studies'. I have a few local people in mind, but I'd like to talk to folks who are in different climates, like Canada and the desert west, as I know...
  12. Ordinary horse heroes. Would you read this book?

    So - COTHERS - would you read this book?

    Its been bubbling up in me for a while now - the desire to write a book about ordinary horse owners with ordinary lives, and the small, personal,...

    1 of 3 possibilities come to mind.

    1. Trainer is a control freaking fruit loop.
    2. Trainer is working a commission angle and/or has other plans for the horse.
    3. Trainer knows something about...

    You can't change a culture if you just 'opt out'. That is a disservice to all the horses out there who are giving their all and can't get out of the industry, and the riders who are working hard and...

    I'm 4'11" and 105. When I was younger and riding/jumping regularly, people were throwing ponies at me. I absolutely think there is a market out there for small adults to school the ponies, but...

    I like a well rounded horse and although I don't really jump anymore, Rico does, with DD in the irons. He's a nice small junior hunter, with a huge canter stride.

    The trailer brakes can be a lifesaver!

    Not towing - but I had it happen years ago. Light turned red, hit breakes, nothing, braked harder, they went all the way to the floor. Hit the car in...

    Between 6-9 AM and 7-9 PM, depending on whether or not they are out on pasture at night.

    If I can't put them on night pasture turnout (9PM - 6AM) I'll turn them out between 6-9 AM and 6-9 PM, and...

    Has anyone ever noticed that blue tarps are more dangerous than 'tarps of a different color'? They are king carnivore of tarps.

    The horse you loved and lost made you what you are today. Its the generous spirit of all horses that gives us the ability to share our lives with them as a partner in whatever activity we choose to...

    Yes of course I'm blaming the bag. It lured in the poor innocent horse with the smell of hay and then tried to eat it.

    Normally we're careful with it - as we've already seen a few horses giving...
  23. PSA: Ikea bags to tote hay - use caution

    They are absolutely perfect for carrying 3-4 flakes of hay. They are also the sneaky offpspring of the common domestic horse eating blue tarp.

    DD was carrying extra hay to her horse yesterday -...

    Oh god no - just picture lots of little fiberglass particles flying around in the air.

    I love my shorty - and so does everyone else. DD was bummed when I brought Rico home from the boarding barn and took my shorty with me. Need to buy her one for her birthday.
