    What else are you looking for if not money? I would send them a bill for the items, especially the blanket. halters break, it happens but if they were just supposed to borrow the blanket for a few...

    I would also make sure they know to bring him in first, if being left is one of the things that works him up. With my difficult guy I make sure horse sitters know to get him first or he gets much...

    "Being a TB" seems to be the qualifying factor here. The TBs all get 6-10 qts of TC Senior a day and all the good quality hay and grass I can stuff in them, the rest get as little as a cup of TC 30%...

    I have large run-in shelters with soft crushed stone bedding built in all my fields, so the horses that prefer a shaded, bug-free place can be in there without the expense of pine shavings. It...

    To me, hard keeper doesn't mean thin, it means I have to give it four times as many calories as the easy keepers. They all look the same standing in the field!

    Horse people are so weird -- if she disclosed it in an ad for the horse I have a hard time understanding why she didn't plan to tell you about it at all if you'd pursued the sale! How close were you...

    It is a great album. I cheated and had it playing on NPR's first listen for a few weeks before the preorder arrived. The whole album is totally solid which is hard to do after one as good as...

    Hay can be brown and still nutritious. Color is not a great way to tell hay quality. It sounds like she has fed them, just not hay you like. Why didn't you ask to look at the hay before you moved...

    They can last a very long time. But the truth is, you just never know with horses and you shouldn't count on anything. Take each day with them as a gift and try to make it positive, and if you are...

    G

    There are lots of horses with screws out there still racing and later, jumping. It depends on how it heals. She needs an extensive PPE from a really good vet to understand the horse's...

    I have a horse like this and I put him in an RS dynamic D. It lies really smoothly in his petite mouth and he is very content with it and comfortable accepting the contact. The duo wasn't enough...

    The Scandica is lovely. The leather is gorgeous.

    It was marketed toward shorter/petite riders but I read many taller riders like it because it was not restrictive so I thought I would like that...

    It's actually a pretty common injury if what you are talking about is a condylar fracture/screws in an ankle. if it healed well it can be no big deal at all through a long and useful post-track...

    I think either the Zaria or the Excalibur CS or Genesis CS would work. They are all marketed as jumping/XC saddles. The Siegfried too of course but I still hate those based on the horrible rock...
