    We used a marble on a mare. Worked well for her but doesn't work for all mares. Timing is important.

    We had an old guy that would forget that he was fed. If something distracted him while eating he would stew for his supper again until you went over and pretended to dump his bucket in his pan again....

    It was a very small, but hopeful study. Maybe one that has a larger number of horses will be done to confirm the results.

    Our family has 2 Catahoula's from the same litter. They are about as opposite as you can get. One is very intense and the other is very laid back. I think some of your training success will depend on...

    Leave your dogs home and don't feel guilty. Then spend quality time with them without distractions. If you spend too many hours at the barn and don't have enough time for your dogs then maybe you...

    Tough to lose out furry friends. Heartfelt sympathies.

    I would go talk to the BO. You don't even know for sure that it was you that they were trying to lock out. There's a lot of assumptions going on. I wouldn't involve the police until I knew for sure...

    I don't know your daughter and I don't know the instructor so I am just putting this out there. If your daughter has not progressed, is it possible that the instructor does not teach the way your...

    OP don't sweat it. For some reason people seem to think that farriers are some breakable fine china. They are human. If you talk to them honestly and respectfully (as you did) they are no more prone...

    I think you have a good plan at this point. It would be a bad thing to take your horse to the first one and have it be a bad experience for both of you. If all goes well for the first one, make some...

    My new little mare prefers not to get dirty. She instead chooses to cast herself in the stall. Ugh.

    It probably depends on how big and deep they go. We had two out a couple weeks ago and the vet said to give her just a couple days off. She was a little sore the first day but then it didn't seem to...

    I think I would check it out myself. There are new owners and they deserve a chance to show improvements. It sounds like they have been busy. It has been winter weather. They have only owned it since...

    Yes. I would. I would be very careful about picking the Chiro. Be sure to pick a very qualified one. There are many that could do more damage than good but a good one will help your aging equine.

    Hog gates are more like 32 inches tall. You could hang them so the top is a normal height but the bottoms would be off the ground. I think they can be found at most farm stores.

    When I've been stuck to metal I usually try holding a little tighter so the heat of my hand warms the metal and frees my skin without leaving too much behind. I have no suggestions for the ones...
