    I have a 14 hand pony who is wide-barreled and short bodied (the complete opposite of yours). He fits into a 68 Baker turnout sheet, a 68 Dover International Supreme turnout sheet and blanket and a...

    Honestly, if they tolerate smoking in a barn, who knows what other things they'd put up with that you would eventually discover. It's a slippery slope but smoking in a barn is such a no brainer that...

    Sending you all sorts of cyber hugs. I know how much it hurts but please take comfort knowing you did ALL you could and he's now out of pain, galloping freely across green pastures. Don't forget...

    I was so sad to read this tonight. I first saw it on Facebook and wondered if someone would let COTHers know. I had the pleasure of knowing Steph for many years up in the Bay Area - we'd often hang...

    She's lovely, Susan. So glad to see you working with a young horse! And a pony at that.

    I got my first pony this summer, as well. Always wanted one and when I lost Benjamin in June and needed a...

    This is so COOL. Until I watched them side-by-side, I would have chosen Brunello but watching them this way, I'd have given it to JB. He had extra "presence" and while I'd kill to jump either of them...

    But I can guarantee you that in the article about the Derby that will be published in COTH, the course will be praised. And nothing will change. This exact same discussion happened last year. And the...

    Hunter Derby Finals Handy Hunter Round Course

    I've been watching youtube clips of past Hunter Derby Finals and I have to say (which has been said many times before) that the last time I saw a true Handy Hunter course was the year Lillie won on C...

    I watched C Coast Z last weekend at Menlo. Gorgeous horse who is still spectacular.

    I feel very fortunate that my feed store in Ventura got in some BEAUTIFUL orchard grass hay from Nevada recently so I stocked up. Some of the best hay I've ever seen. Not cheap - $26/bale. Alfalfa...

    I love the kensington boots for full-sized horses but when I got a pony recently I found the cashel pony-sized fly wraps fit perfectly so I'm going to say it depends on the size of horse!

    Old scars

    Recently adopted a new pony who arrived with lots of old scars from who knows what. Many look like old bite marks and some old scrapes. None are fresh. My question is whether there is anything I can...

    ISO - Companion Pony in Southern CA

    I recently posted about my beloved hunter, Benjamin, who crossed the bridge at age 26 (after 20+ years together). I'm now looking for a companion pony for my other big horse (I also have minis, but...

    I body clip my minis 2-3 times each late spring through the fall. It gets very hot where I live (temps regularly 100+) and although they seem far more comfortable in the heat than my big horses, I...

    A variation of "Benjamin" -- "Ben Jammin'". Not exactly the best name for a hunter! He raced until he was 5, which always surprised me because running was never his thing. Plus he was incredibly...

    I realize how lucky I am to be able to keep my horses here at home until their end. Obviously not everyone can do this. All one can do is try and be the best horse mom (or dad) to them and find ways...

    Sending you LOTS of jingles. You've already demonstrated how strong you are and you will find the capacity within you to do what it takes to handle this. The ups and downs are the hardest, I know....

    Thank you for your kinds words. I have never recovered from the horrible loss you suffered back in 2009. I so admired your strength in such a terrible tragedy and I admit to thinking about you while...

    OMG. Giant hugs back at you. But Benjamin is in FINE company, especially if he met up with your "old man." Imagine the stories they could be telling.

    And I do believe there are horses in heaven....

    I think it's awfully crowded across the Bridge right now. Thanks for your kind words. Liz

    Who was your mare? And I'm so sorry you're going through similar stuff. I rode up in the Bay Area until 2004, when I then moved down to Ojai and showed in So. CA for a few more years.

    Emily (right?) -- You're the one Randy put on him to show me that yes, indeed, Benjamin COULD canter if someone knew how to ASK HIM PROPERLY. I was so humiliated. In my defense, I wasn't wearing...
