    That's terribly sad news. I looked at a horse that he was selling once. He is wonderful and I always enjoyed seeing him at horse shows. We lost a good one.

    Would NOT recommend Weatherbeeta what-so-ever... as their quality and their stitching varies dramatically. Anything I've owned from them has never lasted more than 2 seasons.

    I've had a few chickens in my day... and what I can tell you is that by the time you're feeling the spook come on... it's already too late. Subconciously, you are probably assisting in it with a...

    I finally gave up.

    My horse has managed to get off any fly mask ever invented. He has even managed to get a few off without even undoing the velcro. In fact, he is so proud of his work, that he...

    Also, pay attention to what and how much she's been eating. Is her appetite the same?? It's possible that she's developed ulcers... and that can make it extremely uncomfortable for them to do any...

    My horses always lived far from me... but you've got plenty options in the Colts Neck/Holmdel/Middletown...

    Yes.

    Get the PPE.

    Seems fishy to me. My guess is that they backpedalled on the sizing bc the pic shows the stamp that deems it a 16, not an 18. Someone else...

    FWIW, I called and spoke with them about 2 years ago. They seemed very knowledgable and made some very valid points... so I wouldn't go ripping apart their website.

    They're blunt and I liked that...

    I spoke to either Randee or Eileen (can't recall which one) once about purchasing a pony. They were nothing but a class act and would have recommended them to anyone. Sorry for your loss :(
