Here's another - and it's the best we can do. My 15-year-old is 6'8". Our 16.1 Friesian Sport Horse is as big as I want to go. I'm a fan of the little guys. My son is only 185 lbs thus far, and...
I'm 5'10", and my Jet is 14.3. We just don't tell her she is small, and she is convinced she is mighty.
I love this description. Horses that love riding are the greatest, and if you find their joy, along with your own, it's the best of experiences.
All true, except the size 16 shoes are a challenge, as are the 34x38 pants, lol. Oh, and fitting in a normal sized car - or desk.
Yes, that's my boy. He's 15 and 6'8".
I have a metal carport as a shelter in one pasture, and the horses love it. It's extra tall, with no walls, just the roof. It's by far my horses' favorite run-in they have ever had. I think they...
If you aren't 100%, without a doubt, sure that what you're asking is safe, then you should listen to your horse. Ground pole in the arena that 7 horses just crossed? If your horse refuses, he's...
The thing I hate is when they are painfully tight when you put them on, but falling off four hours later. That, and that if I buy long jeans, they are toooo loooong, but if I buy regular jeans, they...
My horses do fine everywhere barefoot - not saying all horses can, just saying that it's certainly possible that yours will be fine.
I think it's possible to get rebounds headaches from any and all pain and sinus meds.
I think the difference between a headache and a migraine is more about severity. If you can work, talk on the...
Here's the story of our Polly, who is a successful COTH match.
Best one in the world!
Raised my boy,
Gave him joy.
And now she has a girl!...
I'd do the x-rays. We thought my mare's case was very mild (didn't lie down, was off for a few days, then looked not bad at all), but she has 6 degrees rotation in one of her fronts.
It was really cool here, watching from the porch with my boys.
Can someone post the Oxine treatment?
I have two horses with WLD right now - three hooves. Both had what looked like superficial cracks on the rear hooves, that turned out to be cracking outward...
I think it is normal behavior. It can get better with consistent riding, but it's to be expected that horses are happy to get back to their pasture mates. I wouldn't go for jigging, distracted...
I had the same sorts of issues with my last pregnancy, and a friend's sister who is a midwife suggested extra B complex vitamins. It worked for me.
We have always combined all of our money. That started because we were youngsters, without any money anyway. That has worked fine for us, for 25+ years. I don't know how I'd do it if I were...
Horses - 18, 9, 11, donkey is almost 2.
Dogs - 12, 8
Cat - 10 months
Human offspring 24, 15, and 12 (not mine, but mine)
I'm glad everyone is basically fine.
Did the chains not hold when the hitch came apart?
10 years transition and 6 years in shoes and the horse is 16? That math is a bit questionable, lol.
I do understand what you are saying, but that made me giggle.
Oops - posted twice.
I'd like to know what kind of rocks the barefoot horses are avoiding, and what kind of shoes you are using to keep your horse comfortable on those rocks?
Logic dictates that a regular keg shoe can...
I have 3 horses and a young, standard donkey. Mine were all out on 30 acres 24/7, so that was super easy. One developed laminitis (despite Remission and a muzzle) in early August, so now things are...
