    Meatyogre, I think your indoor idea sounds divine and that size would be fine. If I ever win the lottery or inherit from a long lost rich uncle we never knew existed, I will build just that!

    The Nibblenet can also help with choke because they can't get big wads of hay out of it at a time to choke on. I had a chronic choker and he would choke in an instant if his grain was high or not...

    Also try leg yielding off the quarter line and asking for the canter when you get to the rail. A proper leg yield will put her body in position for the lead. An R dressage judge taught me this...

    I think this really depends. I used to swear that I would never let people provide their own grain again after a bad experience with a boarder who did this but constantly let her horse run out. ...

    I have the nine inch hitch extender and it works great. Mine is on the trailer, not the truck side. I think that is better for the weight distribution according to my mechanic brother.

    This. My DH was really into solar when we moved to the farm and I told him I would fully support if he could make the numbers work, period, meaning they would save money over the lifetime of the...

    Yep. My list:

    1. Fields with adequate shelter, safe fencing, or land on which I can install these.

    2. Arena with all-weather footing!

    3. Hay storage!

    4. House that satisfies SO and kids

    I can't believe you didn't tell us that Nikki and Smarty Jones (who was also bred by Robert Camac, of course) are stepsiblings until now! Very cool!

    I think the scan is perfect for this situation. Hopefully it can help you target an area instead of wild guessing. I would not be surprised if you get a couple hits. I think that is very smart to...

    I wouldn't buy without a test ride, for sure. The old Crosbys are lovely but definitely a minimalist feel that is not for everyone.

    What is your budget? What size are you? Perhaps we can help...

    Of course, and similar is true for jumpers (you need more impulsion in your canter as the jumps get bigger though not necessarily speed per se) but "making the time" should not be a consideration,...

    I guess I don't understand at all the point that Prelim is faster. I am mostly a jumper rider but I have always been taught that when you move up, you start out riding slow as needed until you are...

    Oh, the one flavor I do like is the ocean spray cranberry juice. Fizzy cranberry water rocks, sort of like having a mock tail all day. The fake Fresca/pink grapefruit is OK too. The colas are...

    Flash44, I would be curious to see what you are referring to so I can learn/adjust as I have not hesitated to overbuy and feed year old hay rather than risk running out. And if that is wrong, I want...

    Not a replacement for soda; great if you like seltzer (we use ours daily). I often put lemon or orange essential oil in the water.

    Have you had his front suspensories ultrasounded? That would be a place I would look.

    I would call that head bobbing lame myself.

    It's not odd to me, the seller says the horse is 8 in her email (posted above). Of course I could be wrong, but I doubt there are that many (part?)Arabians named Felix sold recently whose breeder...

    I also don't think it is accurate that jumpers actually go up by .05 in practice because shows don't offer those classes. It is true that some jumper shows offer this, but usually only the very...

    If he is safe and sound to pack you around the 2'3 and you are in Virginia, and he can win at Virginia local shows which are very competitive, then that's not a crazy price. Maybe a little high but...

    I would put it in something like blue and green paper and put a thank you card on it, make it clear it is a thank you and not a holiday gift. I would not want to leave her out if I was gifting...

    It would probably not be better if all your hay was organic/not sprayed with anything. Then it would be full of weeds after a few years of this. Pick your preference!

    Anyway, most farmers...
