    Try different kinds. I have a western that I LOVE. My gaited fellow was a hard fit. He did better in an English treed saddle over a Western treed saddle, but it still wasn't a perfect fit and I am...

    I only have one horse I blanket. We really don't get that cold that often but she doesn't handle the cold well. If she wants one, she will stand still even in the middle of a pasture. If she...

    Blue, the horse he shares a paddock with looks great on the same hay. She is an Arabian so might do well on almost anything. Either way, he needs more.

    He has now been ridden twice since starting...

    OP, you may have wanted someone to approach you but most don't. Its a great way to ruin a friendship and you guys aren't even friends so she would probably just resent you sticking your nose in.

    Keep him. First, you would feel guilty pocketing that kind of money.

    Second, you would probably be kicking yourself for selling your perfect horse especially when you are out trying to find his...

    Unless you are the BO or have some vested interest, you need to MYOB. :)

    Dear Swinger, you do not need to swing right to turn left across 2 lanes. Also, you do not need to swing left to turn right into a wide drive that is curved so you don't have to worry about hitting...

    His heals are fully healed and were fully healed before riding him again. It was going on before then, though. Not every single ride but enough that I noticed.

    Would it be possible to "sell" all the judgements to one person who could then get a lean on her house or something along those lines?
