Better site for it:
Neat--Ortalan was Toussaud's third dam.
I'm surprised to hear your neighbor's pile doesn't compost quickly, PonyFever. I use the pellets, too, and it's breaking down quite nicely. I use the Marsh pellets from Fleet Farm. I would expect...
Yup, got the corners. Was quite generous, actually. :)
Google Earth (the thing you actually have to download from google and open from your computer) can also do this sort of thing. The free...
No clue where this info comes from, but Sport Horse Database has him at 16.2:
Although about a half acre short for our property. Just had it surveyed.
Keep in mind that radiographs don't tell you the state of the cartilage. Get them, for sure, and the fact he's sound now bodes well. But I have seen horses (and I had one) with lovely rads...
It's a damned if you do, damned if you don't thing isn't it? :( I don't know what the right balance is, either, but it pains me to see hoof prints in the nice grass and hurts even more to see how...
I am generally wary of knee issues, but it sounds like the chip was addressed quickly and damage to the cartilage was minimal. For the most part, as long as the chip isn't in there grinding away at...
I use photoshop and the overhead from google maps. Works great for me. You could do the same with something free like GIMP, or even get the basics in there with paint.
Yay, I saw it! Photobucket has been throwing all sorts of "an error has unexpectedly occurred" things at me lately.
Look at how lovely your fence and your grass is! It's beautiful. Your little...
This one is my favorite from the knees/hocks up, but to the ground--wow, those rear pasterns look weak, don't they? And she seems so straight through the hock.
I tried to find decent small bales here, M Owen, but struggled. Very few people put up small bale hay. These are 3 x 3 x 8 foot bales and are 800 lbs ish a piece. Each flake is about 30 lbs. ...
HAHA. Like this?
That's my husband, sitting on a portion of the ... uh <checking...
Is she skinny? Or just lacking in muscle? The mention that she looks good in work perhaps suggests the latter?
I've found TriAmino incredibly useful for keeping muscle on a horse. It's...
I've always thought this was an excellent post about keeping a tame wild animal:
There are more along the same lines in her FAQs:
Come on, show us pictures!!
Why on earth would you WANT to board at a place like this??
GTFO and thank your lucky stars that they've given you such a good reason to find something that's a better fit.
Thanks, guys!! :D I know it's kind of silly...it's only two stalls! What can possibly be exciting about two stalls? You should be able to get that done in a weekend, right? That's what we...
Yay!! Ponies at home! How exciting. Congrats!
I wish your video would load for me, but it just spins. Might be my connection...will try again later.
You may want to just ease into the forums here and give yourself a bit more time to learn the landscape before you post rants and raves. A month is really not long enough, apparently.
Bought all of these this year:
I'm thinking about you today, SFH. Big hugs for you and pats and scratches for your sweet mare.
I have been quite impressed with SSTack.
I thought this was normal :confused:
Stalls are IN. Mats are IN. Horses are IN THE STALLS.
I can't even describe how incredibly exciting this is. It's shocking just how much work...
