    Yes, that is probably a better way to describe it!

    But I want to reiterate the personality change that happens when my normally-respectful horse is in pain, or anticipates pain. It is quite...

    Said much better than I did :) Sorry I should have been more clear! I agree that the post-nap-stretchers are probably feeling JUST fine. But more than one of those stretches in a row, or a stretch...

    The trailer places have one of those magic testers that they use to see if your plug is making a solid connection (using the actual configuration of your connection). Check both your truck and...

    I would take that divider out. I once had a horse that could NOT NOT NOT be trailered with a full divider. He wanted to spread his hind legs WIIIIIIIIDE and if there was a divider, he would panic...

    YES to the oil eating, and YES to the crappy gas mileage. :D
    We had some minor electrical issues a while back (ours is fully loaded) but our mechanic says we will get another 100k miles out of that...

    I have this same rig and it is GLORIOUS to haul with. It is the 2005 8.1L engine and I barely notice our 3500 lb trailer with two horses in it. I will be very comfortable upgrading to the 3H.

    This behavior (the legs in front stretching) in and of itself is usually indicative of belly pain. I see it in my ulcer-prone one quite a bit, and I have seen it during colic as well. It may have...

    Well, I own one. He was given to me because he was unmanageable during a rehab stint with stall rest. He would try to attack anyone who went into his stall because he figured out that anyone who...

    I have three sites on godaddy for three different organizations and have never had a problem, and have been happy with their customer service when I have had to use it. Maybe I am lucky? I have...

    According to the attacker's husband, the baby was most likely alive, at least for a minute. We will see if they can prove it. If they can prove it, then and only then can they charge her with...

    Not necessarily. He's still a baby, really. I'd call him a very insecure 4 year old. :) Some horses are fine with this, but 4 year old TBs are not usually in that group.

    I think you are asking...

    Huh?? What exactly is wrong with it?

    I love this picture. Have some similar ones with me and my daughter on her Shetland as she is first trying out foxhunting. Lead-lining the younguns like...

    Agreed!!

    Something is going to break, period. Neck, halter, lead rope, baling twine, or whatever you are tied to, whatever is the weakest will break. Choose what you want it to be :)

    Too many...

    Google ARFID.

    It is a legitimate psychological disorder on the DSM-5 list.

    What this poster typed above, and the rest of you who think people should suck it up buttercup, is equivalent to...

    I am leaving my current company to become self-employed March 1, so I just went through this myself! I am in Colorado and it was amazingly easy. We were able to buy pretty much the exact same plan...

    My daughter was 8 for her first one and she STILL talks about it :) She rode her little Shetland who was already a star in the hunt field, and a pro at following the big horses wherever they went.

    You should have gotten the version with captains chairs in the second row instead of a bench! We have the Saturn Outlook ( same as the Traverse) for our three girls and it is an AWESOME layout. We...

    Just did mine today in fact!! Easy peasy, at least in my state. $50 and it took 5 minutes online. Of course my DH blazed that trail recently so I just followed his lead.

    Ha!! You sound like me. I do put my kids to work now though. My 10 year old does the morning horse feeding all by herself (she earns a dollar a day for her allowance), and I make her do dishes when I...

    My experiences are mostly with our local store, but I have to say they are wonderful. I took back an easy boot that my horse had destroyed within a week, and was fully prepared to argue my case, but...

    It's not that hard to figure out how much your electricity costs. Look at your bill, or check out the company's website. The national average is $0.10/ kWh, and I am guessing that since OP's board...

    I have been horseless many times and have never found a shortage of horses available to ride. Network, network, network. Assuming your barn is not the only place in town, offer a free exercise riding...

    Happiness!!! We are on the other side of this story.... My daughter is the recipient of a lease pony whose owner is leasing him out JUST so he can have someone to love on him, and we feel so lucky!...
