    Maybe it wasn't just temperament that made him difficult to deal with. Maybe health (ulcers) or the confined lifestyle. He may be fine to handle on a very irregular basis. How do we know that he...

    Well the nerve of them! :) It was entertaining so the time lost watching was worth it. Those little hobbits are scary critters. AP did an excellent job in making him a real person. Supposedly a...
  3. Cannibal in the Forest - the Dr Timothy Darrow story

    I hope I didn't spell the doctors name wrong, if I did I apologize.

    So I just watched the program on Animal Planet. He was convicted of killing and eating the other two members of his team. They...

    Sounds like windpuffs. I've seen them, generally, on the hind legs around the backs of the fetlocks. None of the horses were ever lame from them.

    I agree with livestock not being allowed into running water sources. Around here cattle are one of the biggest stream/river destroyers. They ruin the water for fish. The worst is the farmers that...

    I agree with arlosmine, more soundness problems with toes out vs toes in. Perfectly straight legs don't always mean a horse is or will stay sound. As long as it isn't facing backwards I think you...

    A good brain and a face you love to look at are very good things indeed. I like his interested expression. The pic is unflattering, but I still see a lot to like. Legs good, back good, shoulder good,...

    What a hard working (and sound!) horse. I hope he lives the life of Riley when he retires. :)

    Let loose the dogs!

    The prisons in my area all have different types of jobs the inmates can do. There is a big brand called "Prison Blues". Some nice denim stuff.

    So cool, love the "leadfoot" :)
    In two point the gait is fairly easy to stay with. I miss zooming around the canal roads on my standie. Standardbreds are the best!

    You win! That sounds like a nasty place to live. My dad is from there, he always said he was glad that his mother made the decision to move west.

    500k, I'd pay off bills and put a sizable amount into IRA's. I'd also treat myself and some family members to a sweet, little holiday.

    10 mil, I'd put a lot into an investment portfolio, buy a...

    Worst state to live in?

    Sounds like Colorado to me. Watching the weather channel most mornings I see CO mentioned a lot. Tornados, hail, flooding, killer snow falls, forest fires, mud slides, and on and on. Who is your...

    So the rider doesn't have reins? The horse is simply going around with side reins and no other steering? But if the rider does have reins separate from the side reins they are still able to balance...

    Absolutely!

    In years past I used to sometimes just have the fronts shod, but I have found that "generally" if a horse needs shoes he's going to need them on all fours. I know many people will...

    I'm confused, the op says the horse won this past weekend, but the rider (?) is using the word "was". Has Chief died?

    I'm hoping he is alive and well :) he looks so beautiful in the pictures!
