    Would you like to lease my horse? You are getting screwed my dear, no flower, no kiss. Horse should have been taken home. And you would have then been responsible for stall fees.

    Two words for horses that don't care about treats. Pet and Scratch. Really, treats are important to us... a kind word and a soft hand are what they most like.

    Might I suggest that the boarders agree to an increase in their monthly rates to cover part of the cost? Here's the deal. Many, many farm owners, just don't have !5-20K laying around someplace for...

    find out who the trainers are with owners who love their horses like pets, usually the vets that work at the track know who these people are. If you were young and bendy, I'd say canter isn't a bad...

    Ok, I'll bite

    Because like you, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, it was "all I could afford". I was a crash test dummy for a wonderful woman who took failed racehorses and turned them into Really Nice...

    You need a Charles Owen

    Go to someone that has the oval models and have them fit you. Buy the one that fits. I had cranial surgery as an infant and have a rather alien shaped head, it is truly flat on the sides, very...

    I'm not sure with picking paddocks and cleaning stalls and doing everything "right" daily, that you could get it down to less than 45minutes-1 hr. it would likely take the same time for 1 horse or 3...

    It isn't for the people who "know" how to work that this rule is in effect at our place. And I came from the race track, we all had radios. But... that little hand held device is addictive and it's...

    Presumably, there is a land line phone in the barn. Make sure that new employees have the number so someone can call them on that phone during working hours. Tell them to leave their cell phone in...

    Send him to me... really

    I miss my Corgi, gone 4 years now, more than anything. He was whip smart, easily housebroken, never chewed up anything he wasn't supposed to and by month 6 did not need to be in a crate even at...

  21. I'll weigh in...

    Not all trainers or owners can afford to retire, or have a place to retire racehorses, but many love them as much as the rest of us do. Most I know would love to hear they'd landed in a good place. ...
