    I asked Michael that years ago when I visited and he said they've been studs their whole life so why do a risky surgery at this age ? So they haven't in the past.

    You really have to understand why the horse won't load. And how the horse is wired.

    For a horse that's scared of the trailer, patience is the key. I always always put some good 'trailer bait'...

    I was in a self-care situation for a long time that worked out beautifully. Dry stall / pasture was $xxx a month, but they the BO had 2 horses of her own, and would pay us $xx an hour to care for...

    My vet said that a dog could miss a heartworm treatment here and there and they'd still be protected.

    Racing AQHAs are a small percent of all AQHAs bred I would think. More non-racing ones end up at slaughter because there are more of them around. The majority of TBs are bred to race.

    Same thing...

    Use a canning jar ... the lid screws on tight enough so that you won't have leaks if it tips over. Get one of the wide mouth 1/2 pt ones, they are squat and less tippy.

    I'd make sure they are not alone together unsupervised for a few weeks. If this means locking one in the house and one in the yard, or leaving one in a crate or pen and one out, then that's what you...

    Is this the first horse you've looked at since you lost your other one ?

    If so, keep looking. It's easy to 'fall' for the first one that almost sorta comes close to clicking. Because you just...

    If you take the bunny home, you can use the dog run but if it's not on concrete you'll need to put it on top of some type of fencing mesh so the bunny can't dig out.

    It does take a very special horse to win the Triple Crown. I think it's possible that AP will win it, but everything does have to be just right. He really impressed me with his Preakness win, that...

    I have never heard of a case where the deposit is refundable unless it's written into the sale contract - ie, the horse is 'sold' pending passing a PPE within so many days. The balance would be paid...

    Don't bring up the old issues. Sounds like she's already forgotten about them.

    This whole thing is just sickening. Sounds like they were trying to keep him going because they could still breed him and get some money out of him. Really sad. I hope that horse is gone now.
