    Yes, I make my own. There's no indication on Cocosoya about how much coconut oil is in their mix. I buy Coconut oil and regular oil (I"m not wedded to soy), at Costco and mix my own. If you heat the...

    The only way to know for sure is to check with an insurance agent. My guess is that if the OP is charging for the use of the trailer, then by earning money from it, she tips over into commercial use....

    If you accept payment other than a portion of the gas, it makes you a commercial hauler. You don't want to go there! Would need special insurance, commercial plates, keep a log, etc.

    Or turnout (when it's possible).

    As a foxhunter, I never wrap my horses after hunts. If it's a really hard hunt, I will cold hose. Mostly I just turn out.

    As a foxhunter, I appreciate the irony. Your typical show ring hunter would be left in the dust.

    Agree. Horses like my mare aren't mean . . . they just know they outweigh you. I've always had big horses (although this is my first draft x) and I adopted a no-tolerance attitude to misbehavior...

    Bonding comes only after respect.

    A big horse with iffy ground manners needs to know exactly what's expected of him. No exceptions. Once he understands that you are in charge, then you can bond.

    Success of the vet vs. farrier depends on the vet, the farrier and the situation.

    What a beautiful horse!

    My own OTTB is on Triple Crown Senior because of its low starch content and relatively high fat.

    He is what I consider to be a hard keeper (he is stuffed full of hay...

    I have had horses that really, really liked sheepskin. It provides a layer of cushioning and it also wicks away moisture effectively.
