    As a driver of old cars, the $600 would be worth it to know that my trip would be trouble-free. Yes, I have AAA, but it's a hassle if a car breaks down. It just is. God forbid it's on a Sunday (it's...

    The grocery section in mine is not great, and their prices...

    It shouldn't be $700. For insurance purposes, if you're insuring him for a reasonable amount, it's more that the vet will come out, watch the horse move, make sure everything works, and fill out the...

    Then have them ACTUALLY sign him over to you, and put him down.

    You're getting into a crazy fuzzy gray area if you put him down after they dump him without going through the appropriate legal...

    I am putting down my dangerous mare on Monday, after years of professional training, full body bone scans, x-rays, injections, etc. She, too, bolts literally out of nowhere, and will rear, too. Like...

    Durasole, and yes, it really does work. Made all the difference for my sensitive-hooved TB mare.

    But also echoing the others that he may just be a horse that needs to stay in shoes year round, if...

    Applesauce is about the thickest thing that can go through the syringe, molasses will be a pain in the butt and probably gum things up.

    Had to dose my mare with 25 pills every day for a month, so...

    Fonts are also a pretty big deal in my industry (web) because it's often a topic brought up in the actual interview....why you used that font, where you found it, would it look good on the web,...

    I'm jealous then. I've had my hard-keeping mare at four different barns in my area, all "higher end", and have always been expected to pony up for the extra hay and grain that she needs.

    Luckily...

    As long as you did it kindly, absolutely. Particularly since she has apparently run into issues before and nobody was nice enough to give her a head's up before it got so bad that she had to be fired.

    You look like an adult on a pony who is more than capable of handling your weight.

    It might not be the current "industry accepted" perfect pairing depending on what discipline you show, simply...

    It's pretty standard for barns to limit the amount of hay and feed that is "included" with board.

    As the owner of a pretty hard keeper myself, the amount of food that my horse is getting when she...

    Yep. Like french fry says, SAD literally comes out of nowhere and knocks you off your happy person pedestal. I am very, very aware of it and try to apologize the second I realize that I have been...

    The daily emails are very, very easy to unsubscribe from. I only get emails when I place an order. I've spent (and saved!) literally thousands of dollars on Zulily...I'm a happy camper!

    I see. I'd let the blankets slide, they're good to have on hand, but I think it's fair to say "Hey BO, I am on a pretty strict budget and the extra hay/feed that my horse needed to maintain condition...

    I wouldn't, because I would be fine with how everything was playing out. Things happen, and it's just for one month.

    I'm not understanding how it "really has an effect" on your wallet? Didn't you...

    I have a mule (so not QUITE the same, but they are similar) who is "fine" when his horsey companions are gone. Fine as in he's not running fence lines or calling for hours on end.

    But he just...

    Donkey's need companionship just as much as any other equine, so if your horse is really going to be regularly gone for weeks/months at a time, definitely get two.

    It definitely does sound like there is SOMETHING going on with her.

    But before retiring her fully, I'd try just turning her out for a year. You could even start by just giving her this winter...

    Right, but the OP will now be providing a service (trailer rental) and needs the proper insurance to go along with that. God forbid a tire blow, chains break, a horse kicks through the ramp, etc,...
