I was waiting for the space ship to rise up. What the heck was that?!
Wow. What a mess. This could really go wrong for you.
Deal breaker for me too. My two horses have been tough and don't care much about the weather. (Though what about hail? Are they going to have to stand in hail?)
But my little donkey is tender. ...
Another testimonial for The Clip, which works essentially the same way as the Tie Blocker.
When I got Oden, he didn't really stand tied. He didn't lay back like your horse, but he fretted,...
They have access to hay all day long? This sounds fine to me.
ETA: I applaud the effort you're putting in. That's a lot to get done before work.
Wow. That's weird. I thought this would be an easy question!
Want! But the ones linked were not less than $100. :(
You didn't have my option in your poll. I prefer to WORK my horse alone (arena work, ground work); but I feel safest on a trail ride in company.
I'm going to second that you try Chaffhaye. It's soft, chopped, moist, and full of probiotics. They will send you a one-pound sample so you can try it before you buy it.
This company can help you make a custom supplement.
Your hay -- well, your pellets too -- need to be super low in sugar and starch. The only way to know if your hay is low sugar and starch is to have it tested, which I know is not practical for...
I am an enormous fan of clicker training. BUT, I have come to believe that it is not for every horse and every handler. Some horses are just too food aggressive or too excitable around treats to...
I use this feed for my borderline IR guy. If I needed treats, I'd buy their treat product.
Two pounds of senior feed is essentially nothing in your situation.
Save that money and put it towards something more nutrient dense.
Sweet feed is not a good choice in general. You can almost certainly find something better.
A Fjord is a perfect sized draft horse for me. You get all the advantages of draft, but a nice compact package!
There's a very active FB group dedicated to drafts that you'd probably like. ...
And what options does your new barn offer you?
Horse feed and supplement labels are notoriously difficult to glean meaningful info from.
Sad all around.
That head shot! <3
My farrier is definitely not hot (except in the summer when I feel **so** sorry for him). But he does a mean trim, and he comes when scheduled; so I love him!
This is why I can't sell horses. Once one come to my house, he's a lifer. This would kill me.
I think there is room for more modesty and more helmets in the world.
Oh, that's terrific! (That you get to try it for free!) Please post back and let us know what you think.
I'm hoping to get on of these for daily use when I'm an old lady living in a nursing...
Interesting! Beasley is south of Houston. Far from me, but, wow, I'd like to train on that stimulator!
