    [Raising hand.] I have had my own place for 7 years now, but I do recall one place I boarded that I thought was relatively drama-free. It turns out, the BO was having all sorts of drama over me!...

    This could be the problem. Not everyone "always wants to talk it out." I'm a great example. If there is a direct, immediate conflict that requires a resolution for something to get done? I'm calm,...

    Why is it sad? What is sad about buyers being self-aware enough to NOT put themselves or a young horse into a situation that they are not confident will turn out well? That is a good thing. You and...

    And that may actually be an answer: There is a fairly large contingency that cannot be swayed, and they have solid, well-thought-out reasons for this.

    I have to disagree. Neither "courtesy" nor "transparency" were lacking in this case. Because it is the well-known standard practice that a horse (or other item) for sale will be marketed continually,...

    Erm ... no, they're not. Not in some areas. Not in MY area. And i'm not in Texas.

    Haven't seen the movie, so can't comment on that.

    Yes. They are not ideal, but sometimes it's just too damn cold and I don't want to take off my warm and comfy boots to put on my actual schooling boots.

    I am not a frequent buyer/seller, but I have bought and sold a few. Here are my thoughts on your question from the occasional seller's perspective:



    I'll answer the second question first. No,...

    Ditto what was already said. The feel of the horse (and lack of verbal feedback) is quite different from the feel of a human. You need to go to a good school that includes some in-person, hands-on,...

    Say all the options out loud, in an angry/irritated voice. The one that sounds most like it would stop a recalcitrant kidlet in her tracks is the right one. :winkgrin:

    Sorry, that's all I got.

    I am one of those that is befuddled at the power that some people give their trainers/some trainers expect to have in the relationship. Personally, my goal is to learn to ride better and train my own...

    Label your poop bags with date and time. Deliver to his house. Smile brightly and thank him for his diligence in making sure the neighborhood is kept free of dog shit, if not of turds.

    This is really a surprise to anyone? I mean, really, what do they expect these guys to do. Go into food service?

    Yes, I've always been terribly impressed by all the zombie horses I've seen living on sandy properties in the SE, SW and southern CA. :lol:

    It does. Nonhorsey Mr. CH comments on this often. Usually something along the line of how I need to work on my "boogie" while on horseback.
