    I was allowed to bring my dog to the barn I boarded at.

    1. He was a good dog .
    2. I worked there.
    3.I was there during a time of day many people weren't.
    4. The owner told me I could.

    When...

    This is what I have always done and it works wonderfully. After a few days I usually just open the gate and they walk off together. That is how it should be.

    Mares can be far meaner than geldings....

    Used to be that people who boarded always bought their own grain. Somewhere over the last 23 years ( since i left boarding) it has become the norm for the barns to include feed and supply it. ...

    Good to hear! Some mares just love having a foal and it looks like you have one of those. A good nurse mare is hard to find.

    I have 2 ideas on this.

    1. You are cousins, but that doesn't mean you will be friends. She has moved here and is now making her own friends and a new life for herself and sadly that may not...

    Your thoughts here pretty well sum up how I feel about the situation. I am blessed to have the land to retire my 2 horses when the need arises and still have room for one to ride. I know many don't...

    To me his breeding doesn't even matter. He is a gelding right? His value comes from what he is able to do under saddle. If he is still NQR (= lame) then to me he has no resale value until his...

    I was in your shoes once. In my case I needed a custom saddle to fit him and just didn't have the cash. He had lots of groundwork and was considered green broke as he could be ridden at the walk,...

    We had Bosco in N. CA when I was a kid back in thelate 60's- 70's. In the midwest now and I have never seen it.

    If someone wanted him back they would have been looking when you notified everywhere that you had found him.. If he is as happy with you, as you are with him, he is yours.

    People will either care for their animals well or they won't. It doesn't matter where you have them. Full board, self care or at home. You just notice them more in the self care mode because there...

    The fact that there are multiple horses who are unsound and needing homes tells me the best option is to put them down. One would be hard enough to place, but 2 or more? Good luck with that. Things...

    I have bred a few mares over the years myself and also boarded at a barn where the owner had 2 nice studs standing. Some mares even though they are in heat and ready to be bred can be uncooperative....

    I think you are nuts, actually. All our cats have lived into their teens on nothing but kibble. One my mother in law had was 19 and had nothing but wal mart special kitty kibble. My current cat (...

    I think you were really lucky that you were notified that the horse was no longer available BEFORE you drove the 1 1/2 hours to see him.

    In defense of the seller, how many times do people make...

    If pain in the spine was the issue wouldn't he be more prone to blow up under saddle?

    They may run in the snow but if the footing is slippery they will be going gingerly. If it balls up in their feet it will dislodge eventually as the horses turn and move. If it does ball up enough...

    That is interesting. I have only had a slobber issue when the horses grazed on fields with the small white clover. Red clover in the pasture or as hay has never caused it ( at least for me) .
