    So I finished one more but was too late for the actual Christmas so I made it kind of a "winter" motif instead. I made it smaller to fit on a regular size door since it was a gift for someone in town...

    I'm sure it differs among vets, but mine won't do a partial release. Had this discussion when I was selling a horse this year and buyer wanted the records -- my vet is "all or nothing." Of course, as...

    Honestly, if you look at the price of erosion control grid stuff, which I did at one point, it didn't seem that much different. And if you do find some that are cheaper, I'd look carefully at how...

    I have one that I am not that crazy about. My SO likes it so he uses it when we clean the pasture areas as it is more durable and with the replaceable tines, if it gets caught in the grass and...

    I wouldn't bother with a PPE because I wouldn't be buying a visibly lame horse. As someone else said, it is up the seller to investigate and fix the lameness (if possible), not the buyer.

    I wouldn't want them in stalls either.

    If the website is as bad as it was when I last looked at it, don't judge the product by the website. Also worth exploring the other products I mentioned...

    I was thinking of blower like blowing dust out of the barn...forgot you could use it to dry (the Electro Groom). I don't find the air coming out to be that warm relative to the surrounding air temp,...

    I also have Hoof-Grid, which we installed ourselves for paddocks attached to the barn. We had previously done the geotextile/rock method, which worked well for my retired horse, but the young...

    To use it as a blower, you move the hose from the air intake connection on top (that is where the hose is when you vac) to the air output connection at the bottom of the machine. Then just turn it on...

    My completely incompetent local post office lost several packages around Thanksgiving. The only one that we were unable to recover (since most went to neighbors and we were able to sort them out...

    Maybe dog and horse are in cahoots and making their big escape. Does make you wonder what the story is.

    It was John that put them on my horse in a clinic, similar timeframe. I don't think it was for the horse getting behind the vertical in that case, as that wouldn't apply at all to that horse, but...

    I just reread and saw you have it on trial. Send it back. Not worth the bother. It might be a simple fix or need a whole new tree, but why mess with that? I'd keep looking.

    Well, for completeness, the PPE vet gave me a rundown of what they can do for drug testing. There are three options. First tests just for NSAIDs and is ~$180; Second does NSAIDs and sedatives for...

    This sounds like what I was just talking to my vet's assistant about on the phone - they won't be doing the PPE since the horse is elsewhere, but I honestly never knew there was a standard panel for...

    I don't even have to watch the video to know which one it must be. I remember the past threads on this said he wasn't just the father to the rider, but also a trainer and kind of known for this...

    My squeaky saddle that I posted on COTH about some time ago had me worried, so I had the panels dropped so the tree could be inspected by a good saddler. It was relatively cheap (cost almost as much...

    I have to agree with the last two posters that the lack of base is probably the main problem. You'll always have to wait for the ring to dry out or you will punch through. I can't see how adding...

    Well, one thing about it, if you get a side ramp and never or only rarely use it, that is probably preferred to NOT getting a side ramp and wishing the whole time that you did. If only $1K diff, then...
  20. Drug Testing on Pre-Purchase Exam - How Does It Work?

    So a trainer that I work with sometimes told me today to be sure and drug test if I vet a horse I'm looking at. I'm not sure if it is a comment on the barn it is coming from, just general ("all...

    I get what you are saying, and that isn't what I meant. The actual audio and video on the one didn't match at all. When you watch the video in the COTH article, it is right. Maybe the first one was...

    Honestly don't see the point of the side ramp on a straight load. I can see having it for a slant if it enables you to take the front horse off without having to take the back horse off first. But I...

    I think you might want to approach it first from the side of what IS included in your board rates. Once you define those (preferably in writing), then it should be made clear that anything in...

    After a long line of bay horses with problems, I'm shopping again and have actually stated "preferably no bays" as part of my criteria. I don't really think color is the source of the issues, but I'm...

    Re/the music out of sync issue -- the video linked in the COTH article doesn't have that issue.

    I so enjoy watching these two. Both look like they enjoy themselves very much, and then to perform...
