    From the 'other side of the fence' I'm actually very surprised that the farm owner would want a mare in with a stallion, pony or otherwise. Mares that are NOT in season can do an awful lot of damage...

    We have 4 Paso stallions here currently. My 14 year old daughter works 2 of them and yes, aside from the occasional neck arching and sideways glance as they walk past the mare stalls, you'd be hard...

    A couple of years ago we did an emergency run to FL to rescue two horses from a bad situation down there. The older horse was a BCS of 1, maybe. I wasn't sure she could make the trip back to VA. The...

    Why not simply find a local barn with a wash stall that allows haul ins? Pay the daily rate and use the facilities.

    I had the pleasure of passing through Hell, MI once. And yes, I did keep moving. :)

    Can anyone tell me how "Lititz" (PA) is pronounced?

    Well, that's a considerable step up from my folks, who are still highly concerned over the size of a horses teeth, even though I have reassured them that they are mostly herbivores. I think they...

    Agreed. But as high-profile as this has become I think the AC folks will be keeping a very close eye on the 35. Main question is whether they can stop her from (a) spiriting them away elsewhere and...

    Well, it may cheer you slightly to see how the local horse community is responding. There are 6-7 well-known tack shops and feed stores in the area that are serving as drop off points and people are...

    Except when they are Pasos, in which case they are advertised at 14.1 and are more like 13.2. :mad:

    OP, you don't say where you are located, but if your climate is reasonably mild you may want to look into one of the Clearspan fabric buildings sold by Farmtek and similar. Those also have a lease...

    I actually have 4 of these in solid oak that I am looking to rehome, but anyone that is in view of 'snowy peaks' as OPs sig describes is probably too far to be useful. But yes, we originally intended...

    Have her checked for Lymes. We've had a couple of horses over the past few years who had no fever or lethargy, only stumbling during rides. A round of doxy and they were back to being surefooted.

    I'm owned by a chestnut mare. It's not a sneer, it's a look of combined disdain and repugnance. Unless we are talking about food. Then I get the horse equivalent of a game show contestant offered a...
