    And if you are asked, do not cut it with a knife! That's what heavy pruning garden shears are for. Knives are hideously dangerous around struggling horses.

    Goshen, north of Louisville. Eventing! Very pricey area, if you are looking to buy, though.

    Can someone give me a cheat sheet on how to "check credentials" on a poster? Do you PM them and ask, assuming that if they won't provide creds the poster is a faker?

    Do you have a lot of experience in long-haul trailering?

    If not, I would strongly recommend you let the horses go commercial. You can use your trailer to haul whatever was going to go into the...

    And this is a dog that he was getting along with very well up to this point, correct?

    Did any of you read the book? Pretty interesting what this couple went through to help their profoundly autistic son.

    It was a horse that finally helped them connect. Very moving story.

    All Lippitts are "old style" but not all "old style" are Lippitts. Lambert, Brunk, Government, etc can all be "old style" horses. Lippitt's have not cornered the market on Morgan typle.

    If this pony is as advertised - a Morgan/Welsh cross - then it takes some serious neglect to have it end up looking like this. Those are two proven "air fern" breeds that can exist on poor pasture...

    And I totally agree with you there.

    The vast majority of TB's in this country are sold through the auction houses.

    LOVE that they can personalize them. And the price is great! I'm thinking one of these would be a great gift for your favorite horse person.

    Buy yourself a healthy amount of cotton rope in the diameter you prefer.

    Buy the hardware you prefer from a hardware store or an equine specialty shop.

    I'll tell you what's going on. The era of breeding for longevity is OVER. As soon as a colt hits a dinger he's tagged for the breeding shed and babied along so he doesn't get hurt, or, as you...

    Agree with everyone - sure he can be 3.

    He's pretty nice. Attractively marked. If his conformation isn't horrendous, he's a heck of a buy. Get him, geld him, bring him along slowly and you...

    As someone living in a state he may move to, I would like to know what disciplines he "trains" for so I can start to spread the word.

    Does he show? If so, a good shunning is in order.
