Sliding ! Yes! Swinging, No!
I have a couple that leave less manure than others that leave lots. I have accepted it as normal for them, and assume they simply have a slower more efficient digestive tract.
Not that I ever found!
If you are unlucky enough to have a horse with glue ons, you need that hammer.
Or if your shoeing cycle doesn't conform to the it's dammit snowing cycle.
Several light taps with a hammer and out they go.
This I doubt. Providing stabling is an additional hassle.
I think it may be an Australian firm looking to break into the market with a granular but expensive product.
You want the head lowered so that any fluid he does have drains out his mouth , as aspiration of fluids, is something you want to avoid. Pneumonia is always a consideration. As a result a lot of...
Lack of decent hay, and sufficient hay is reason enough to leave. The broken fences are just something to speed you on your way.

Laurierace, abscesses, obvious ones, can take a week to pop!!!! I just looked up the timing on the last "glorious" one I dealt with. A "hair tearing" 9 days. I am now two shades grayer.

So when you ride, you need a plan,- the circle will start here, and the bend...

Trainer's philosophy is: let's put him on the lunge to see if there's silliness in there. If so, let's get it out before we sit upon him. She doesn't chase him around or encourage silliness - if he...
This isn't a "nowadays" thing. These people have been around forever. Some pickup a few "ideas" at the track, and those ideas become gospel. Trouble is they were ideas that were around 50 years...
I agree. You can teach some riders to cope, despite a lack of feel. It is far easier to work with a rider who has the innate sense of feel. They learn faster, and go farther faster.
I also agree...
This -only make it 10 years and a different horse's name. Still miss him.
Sniff! Well I never did want to ride there. :rolleyes:
Some of us will never, I hope be able to train those movements.
