One of our cheeky pony's learned TO nip when he was under saddle and being lead. He knew that he wouldn't get punished and if we tried he would over react and up heave the rider.
Without a rider...
Other then keeping her stalled what I would consider an extreme amount of time no. The pastures are all large and grass. NO small sacrifice paddocks that can be graveled.
What about As di Villagana or Carracci ?
Olive the other Reindeer
I visited Mill Creek on Nov 2nd and updated the last thread about that visit.
I have first hand experience with how sight issues turned a VERY willing volunteer type little gelding into a worried quitting mess.
As he aged into his early teens he became more and more far...
So sorry you are going through this. My fuse as of late is short and I'd be hard pressed not to ask for a sit down conversation between yourself , BO and your husband and politely explain that you'll...
I have a mare who was a good race mare, is easy to live with but can be a bit of a hot and bothered sort of girl about a few specific things. Those issues melt away when she is in foal heck even...
I would think perhaps something like black henna that is semi permanent and fairly safe.
Could be bird catcher spots.
Even sadder are the nasty comments some have posted on the article. As if the horse deserved it because he was owned by an Amish family.
No its real and there was a link with other photo's of the place. I wish I could just remember where now :)
The first place I thought of was this one
and this one
I'm going to state again so that its plain and upfront.
1)Max is not unwanted. I have asked /requested/begged that he be returned. They are a sanctuary for unwanted horses.
2) I should have...
In agreement about the shelters.
I bet in 1760 OLD horses did look like that.
Thankfully today is 2013 and we have had advancements.
I do agree about the shelters. They do not provide enough protection.
I do not agree about the condition of some of the residents. Extremely aged is not an excuse for being emaciated. If they are...
He looked like a green horse to me that isn't really a volunteer about anything. I noticed a few times past the in gate John had to snatch him pretty hard in the face on the inside.
Do you have any photo's of your mare ? Would love to see her. Sorry I don't think I caught what disciplines you ride/compete.
Horsi can I ask and perhaps its to personal but in your opinion/words. Why did you breed to Aloha , what were you looking to produce and what are your goals for that breeding's resulting foal?
I wouldn't say everyone is ok with anyone touting less then stellar anything around here. I think the critics are shared and shared alike no matter who's horse it is.
All a'Board next stop Margaritaville
Probably nothing. Again with her other management choices or lack there of who knows if it is truly a case of nature vs nurture.
I never heard a poor word about him when he was owned by the...
Crazy circumstances about the blankets. Seeing what our 30 year old pony does to a turn out blanket you'd have thought the blankets would have just torn between two big stallions.
Strongid C used to have their own Colic care program as well. It included yearly exams and a rear load of paperwork to "qualify" besides the product.
