    Wow, I am glad I am not the only one who struggles with this! I have to tell my trainer to use "inside" and "outside" instead of "left" and "right".

    On the downside, I backed my truck into a tow truck in a parking lot (yeah, my bad--how did I not see a tow truck!) and impaled his wheel bearing with my hitch. The tow truck driver was pretty irate...

    That's so sweet mjhco! You are very lucky that you can keep him at home. I had to retire my guy at 9 after a year of trying to rehab, getting him sound, but every time we upped the work load he would...

    Hey, sorry for the diagnosis, that really sucks! Do a search on here for neck arthritis or cervical stenosis. There are lots of stories. Vitamin E can help; some people have had luck injecting the...

    The only time I've ever had weeds in my ring is when my tractor was broken. But I tend to rake a lot; at least twice a week.

    I also cut mine with scissors. Actually, I cut my non-retired horses' mane with scissors as well, so maybe my opinion doesn't count!

    Yes, the posting of the Craigslist ad is very strange, especially if the current owners are knowledgeable horse people, which seems to be the case.

    You can try Carl at Greenview Farm Horse Transport. He is in West Chester so he might come to you. He is really really nice. 610-363-6979. Good luck!

    This! I needed a saddle for my draft x yesterday! I was making do last year, but he really bulked up between 7 and 8 (seriously??). So I am either going to have to rethink my $2K budget, or find...

    I didn't think he looked particularly hot, but I agree with not liking how crooked he moves. I would PM BFNE to ask her about the horses she mentioned. Have you tried MidAtlantic Horse Rescue?

    How is his competition record? Has he been competing recognized? He's really cute! But really a lot depends on your location. Courtney Cooper could be asking $25K+ for this horse!

    As I said in an earlier post, I pre-ordered mine in March and they just got them in on Monday at Adam's horse supply. So the OP might have called around before the tack shops had them in stock.

    My 4 YO warmblood still looks like a 2 YO. We are not jumping yet. Really we are doing very little ring work, mostly hacking. He does get a training ride on the flat every week or two.
