    I don't think that stallion behavior is completely about how the horse is raised and trained. I think a lot has to do with the individual stallion's baseline temperament (with both breed and...

    Aliceo, I also want to commend you for trying to learn from people's comments instead of getting defensive.

    You are correct, that there are some limitations to using grazing muzzles 24/7--horses...

    OP, you made the best decision you could at the time. I can understand you feeling a sense of loss over selling a horse that you loved. However, it seems that sense of loss is weighing on you in a...

    OP, what's more important to you: Finding a good barn to keep your horse at--and by good, I mean a barn where the horses all are in proper condition with healthy coats and hooves and not getting...

    Aliceo, as Guilherme posted above, horses are VERY adaptable. Much of the special requests that you have are unnecessary. Having a special horse with "special" needs is the hallmark of "that"...

    I didn't read the entire first post. I didn't read all the other posts after it. Why? No need.

    Here's the deal: it's simply never okay to borrow a saddle (or a bridle) without asking. In fact,...

    One last thing--asking someone something in a quick email and then getting a casual response of "of course" isn't the same as someone giving their word or shaking on a deal. The "of course" may...

    My advice would be that if you only want coaching (and only want to pay for coaching), you ask specifically for show coaching and just arrange to meet the trainer at the ring when it is time for you...

    I didn't see anything worth calling an "incident" in the video. I have no problem with someone schooling a tough horse in a firm but cool-headed manner. Sorry, but a misbehaving horse getting a few...

    You need a real tractor (as others have discussed). No way around that. The tractor can be used with a FEL, spreader, arena groomer and mower.

    Then, you need a zero turn riding mower for the...

    I think that keeping someone's horses makes taking the MYOB track rather difficult sometimes. Because it is REALLY easy for people to involve you in their drama when their horses are on your...

    Come Shine, I understand your frustration--you were trying to handle this in a sensitive manner and it got all mucked up.

    However, for future reference, I think it is making things overly...

    I think that 7'6" is nice, but probably overkill for most horses in the 16-17h range. But, 6'6" feels too low to me. I think that a trailer ceiling should be high enough that a random head toss isn't...

    It's very flattering, of course, for your daughter to be offered this opportunity. However, my gut feeling is "no."

    First of all, I think it is very risky to send a 15 year old girl (or boy) off...

    I'm quite experienced hauling, but worrying comes very naturally to me. Honestly, I don't mind the big rigs--they get it and give plenty of room when passing, braking, etc. Similar to IPEsq, I'm...

    I would advise against using concrete if you can avoid it.

    Many posts are not like Bluey's 100 year old cedar posts. I would say that most wooden posts have a much shorter lifespan, either due to...

    I don't think there is anything nefarious about a BO carefully moving a trailer that is parked on the property. In fact, I think it is a pretty reasonable thing to do, albeit in rare circumstances. ...

    I have a few thoughts to add to the conversation. Some horses are sore in places other than their backs. Rib and girth areas can be tender as well. Double check to make sure there is no pinching...

    I'm not a vet, so I'm going to speak from a practical standpoint. A horse with a metabolic disorder is not a good resale candidate. A horse with muscle wasting is also not a good candidate to take on...

    This was an awkward social interaction for sure but it doesn't hit the drama scale. Be thankful for that! :)
