    Thanks!! Good to know he is not actually choking. I had never heard of quidding. I don't know how thoroughly his teeth were checked; although I doubt he was sedated. This is a super easygoing...
  2. Older horse "choking" on hay but teeth check out. Other causes?

    My friend has an old Standardbred cross who has been spotted a couple of times "choking" or something on his hay.

    I saw him do it when I was horsesitting. He turned away from his hay and started...

    People are so dumb. And bold. Your story does not surprise me.

    Whenever I leave my dogs in the car to pop into a store, I only crack the windows, because I am worried people will try to pet...

    Have you looked at the Passier all-elastic girth?

    I used to have one of these for a paper-skinned TB. God I loved that girth. They are sweet. The fact that the whole thing stretches alleviates...

    Yes, I would worry. Personally I've been way too close to too many lightning strikes not to respect (ok, fear) it. And as a kid I saw my pony nearly get struck.

    When I was a kid I had a devilish pony and I fell off all the time.

    But once, I landed basically on my tailbone, and it was terrible. I was crying, I couldn't stand. We had walked pony to a...

    Thanks everybody for your input. I guess I really needed to vent about it.

    Anxious horse. :( Update: Bugs?!?!?!

    I recently bought a TB who is very smart and talented but in my opinion has a real anxiety problem. I'm starting to feel bad for my horse because she honestly seems to struggle with anxiety.

    Excellent point. I will remember that if anyone ever tried to charge me to take hay to a show. Sure, go ahead and charge me for the hay... and don't forget my credit for stall cleaning!

    Would a grey coat with a dapple grey horse look good, or is that just too much grey?

    I just bought a young TB who I just discovered is sideways-spooky on trails and so just ordered a grab strap (the pommel kind) from Smartpak. I'm kicking myself for not thinking of the neck strap...

    So now I make my own treats.
