    Sadly enough I guessed right on the first try as to who you were talking about. What does that tell you...

    Your BO sounds a lot like mine. She is a non-rider and acts like an expert in everything horse related. It normally comes across as condescending, like I'm a total idiot if I don't take her advice...

    There is definitely more to the cost of keeping your horse there than just water and electricity. The BO also has the cost of property insurance for the barn, property taxes, routine maintenance of...

    I have always done the PPE at the vet, though I'm not against doing it at the farm. The particular circumstances on the two horses I vetted always worked out easier to haul to the vet.

    I liked...

    This is what I'd like to know. I took on a horse in similar condition several years ago. I paid for all the groceries and vet care myself. It never occurred to me to ask for money for something I...

    I learned my lesson about this kind of horse the hard way and I would never do it again unless I had the money and the facilities to afford a long term pasture puff.

    I learned my lesson so well...
  7. Without seeing the specific horse it's hard to...

    Without seeing the specific horse it's hard to say obviously. I'd be curious to see her if you don't mind PMing me.

    Research the sire's show history. Watch videos if you can find them. I think...

    I use Zephyr's Garden No Fly Zone on wounds and around my mare's face to keep off the bugs. It smells wonderful and has a consistency similar to vasoline. The base is made from olive oil and beeswax....

    If they are only 15 minutes walking distance I would be walking over there a couple times a day looking for my money.

    I would not help them do anything until:

    BB guns are really good training aids for ground manners.

    Once you learn how to jump, doing flat work is unnecessary.

    I thought it was a great treat to be able to see her in person. It was the highlight of the Friday showcase for my friend and I.

    I found this one a few weeks ago and thought it looked fun:

    I did not care for Unee BB or Painted Black, though both were gorgeous horses.

    Since I live in a big city I have access to a few vet practices that only treat cats. They love cats, know how to handle cats and are obviously very competent with cats.

    I also fell in love with Mister X. He looked like a total sweetheart and the most sensible Trakehner I've ever seen. I also loved Di Lapponia T from Sweden in the freestyle. Very much like a smaller...

    Aha! I think I just figured out who PO is. If it's who I think it is than this just got even more bizarre.
  18. Would you charge for a farrier, vet or saddle...

    Would you charge for a farrier, vet or saddle fitter visit too? I pay way more for the vet or saddle fitter per visit than I do for a lesson. Don't you want a slice of that pie too?
  19. The prior facility I boarded at began charging...

    The prior facility I boarded at began charging the trainers for giving lessons, which was tacked on to the fee charged to the boarder. It was one of the reasons I moved to a barn that didn't charge a...

    I would never drive further than I'd be willing to go and still be able to walk away at a second's notice if necessary. The furthest I'd go is 4 hours each way. I've done enough horse shopping to...

    It sounds like she thinks you're going to undo some of her horse's training. But if she wants someone to ride whiling maintaining the horse's training she should be hiring a trainer, not leasing to...

    The people telling you to run are mainly doing so because it's better to end the relationship now rather than waiting until you've moved in together and things are more complicated. The longer you...

    I've been tempted several times to buy those riding shirts with the venting but I hate the way the fabric feels, like it will cling to you the second you start to sweat. They're also very expensive,...
