    You seem to be concerned that the horse's hoof is white, but that's completely normal.

    You might want to get the horse into some hoof boots (easyboots, or cavallos) on the front if you're going...

    I like Durasole as well, but you might also consider putting boots on him for the first week or so that he's barefoot. Easyboots now make a boot specifically for horses whose shoes have just been...

    I'd agree that you should go get the horse. The person is doing something very screwy: it could either be that they're trying to make you accept the $1500 as the full payment for the horse (the "old...

    Paypal is the way to go I think. Yes, you'll pay a small fee, but it's worth it for the protection.

    I'd also takes lots of photos of the saddle before it goes on trial so that you'll be able to...

    Without being snarky, I think the answer is, "how much rehab do you want to put into the horse?"

    I had a somewhat similar situation, although my mare was 18 and a TB. But she was fit, I rode her 4...

    I had an excellent recent Ebay experience buying a saddle. Seller was very forthright and conscientious, saddle was exactly as advertised, decent price, and then it fit my horse as well. Plus I...

    I'm assuming/hoping you have some sort of a written contract with the trainer's mom about buying out that quarter of the horse. I'd be a little worried that she might want a quarter of what they...

    I know people often say, "You should sell the horse because he could go lame tomorrow." And of course that's true. But unless you intend to sell the horse and then never buy another horse again, it's...

    Yeah, the short fingers thing really gets to me too.

    Most of the SSG gloves work, but only if they're actually sized (not the "ladies universal" size). The men's universal size does work in terms...

    The right business decision is never to own horses at all.:winkgrin:

    I'd say keep him. Money's nice, but if we all really cared about money, we'd have no horses and that trainer would be out of a...

    I just want to add to what a few other posters have been saying.

    #1: stop saying that the boarder is not paying full board. It doesn't matter that she's paying $100 less than what others are...

    I'd go ahead and put the hoof boots on her, and paint her soles with Durasole. Giving her a bute a day for the next few days is probably a good idea as well.

    Is it only her front hooves that are...

    The poor quality of the hoof now may be related to the lack of nutrition he was getting before he came to you. Every nutritional problem tends to show up in the feet and in the coat.

    I don't think the Back Country cuffs would rub--they're really not that tight around the pastern.

    The cuffs (or uppers) act like a power strap. If you're going to have to replace one of the boots...
