    JB, I noticed his flanks and immediately thought rabicano but he only has 1 white hair in the middle of his tail. The horse genetics nerd inside of me is pretty excited about this........as long as...

    Why is my horse getting roan patches?

    Last year, my plain seal bay horse shed out with roaning on the backs of his pasterns. I've owned him for 6 years and this only showed up last summer. I kind of chalked this up to yet another weird...

    Purchase your own TC Senior. I feed Purina grains and I wouldn't bother with Strategy for a hard keeper. I used to feed TC Senior when I lived in PA but I can't get it out here in SD. I do a mix...

    Rick's is always fun, so is the Equine Exchange. They're about 40 minutes from each other.

    I really like the UnderArmour sunshirts. I've comfortably ridden in them in 95+ degrees with a safety vest. I don't live in a very humid part of the US, but they are a lot less gross than cotton...

    The UnderArmour shirts with SPF protection are great. The less-expensive heatgear shirts are decent but not quite as wonderful. Nice long sleeves for tall girls, though!

    Always: Uvex helmet with hairnet, Tipperary safety vest

    Sure. Absorbine liniment and Sore-No-More sports balm for aches and pains, Vetrolin detangler for my thick hair when it's long, and my favorite couch blanket is an old Rambo cooler. Aloe vera vet...

    This sounds like something I would manage to do when I'm wearing 2 pairs of pants + full chaps in the winter. There have been a few times when I went to swing my right leg over the cantle and didn't...

    Get one that fits in the shoulders/bust and have it taken in at the waist. I am a tricky fit for coats--big shoulders, big bust. My two hunt coats are a cheap navy Devon-aire and a brownish-olive...

    This is not impressive for the quantity of mud, rather the placement. I'm not sure how exactly he managed a fairly even oval around his left eye. I think he was going for Nez Perce pony or the dog...

    I have horse hair in my bra and I smell like sweaty cowpony. I've been able to give my TB baby wipe "baths" for almost a week straight. And x2 on the one pair of pants thing <------- this is...

    My horse doesn't like an audience when he pees. So at my old barn after a ride I'd untack and put him in his stall while I put my tack away so he could have his privacy. I also learned that...

    Perhaps I should have said lack of a run-in wouldn't necessarily be a deal-breaker for me. In my situation, where the horses can use the various terrain to their advantage, I'm ok without a run-in. ...

    My TB prefers a loosely fitted figure 8 over a regular cavesson. Or no noseband, but then my brakes are questionable while jumping. He was very anxious when he was a greenie and didn't understand...

    I think white as your main color and baby blue would look smashing. Or white with hunter green. I have a dark bay and while he can pull off basically any color, navy isn't my favorite on him. Then...

    Lack of a run-in wouldn't concern me if everything else was good, but the BO's response would send me running.

    My horse doesn't have a run-in in his pasture, but it has lots of draws and hills...

    I like both, but it totally depends on the company. Almost all of my riding is solo unless my teenage cousin comes with me, and that's more me supervising her because she's a beginner. Which is...

    My daily driver is a 2001 Ford Ranger-- I call it my Pickup Truck for Beginners. Obviously I do NOT tow with it. I borrow my granddad's F150 (5.4L, V8 version) and the 16' brown bumper pull trailer...

    I'm 6', 35" inseam, and the two horses I ride are my 16.3 TB and my uncle's 14.1 cowpony. Balance-wise things are much easier for me when the horse has a big barrel and long neck. My preferred size...

    Yep. Hacking for me is riding outside the ring with a purpose, but less intense than schooling. A trail ride IMO doesn't have a goal per se besides a fun, relaxing time for horse and rider.

    Yes, it works well. I've fed my horse ground flax for most of the time I've owned him except for a few months when the barn switched the feeding regime pretty drastically (the equine nutritionist...

    Last winter they were in a different pasture and we had to ride pretty close to the back side of the weanling heifer corral to avoid tractor ruts. Imagine this picture with 150 calves running up to...

    Pull/trim so everything's the same length. Then if you'd like to let it grow long it'll look less awkward.

    Long manes drive me crazy. Too much upkeep and everything gets tangled in them.
