    About the OP, because I don't have much time to read the whole shebang, the modern day TT bit is a mess. I'm sure you can get his bridle sorted but also suggesting better bits. The old time TT I...

    Post #621 is very informative. It is a reply with quote, but information nonetheless. I had to read up a bit myself. Am on limited data at this time, needed the shortcut.

    As for the blue...

    My experience has been the first 2-3 rides are fairly uneventful if you have the timing and feel. Colt, even one who has been handled, are a bit gobsmacked for the first few rides. Ride #4,...

    **I am too old to start colts anymore, out of shape, not much in the way of core strength, yada, yada. However, I still retain my colt-starting knowledge of several decades.**

    Okay, that out of...

    That's my motto. Do it the easy way, as much as you can. Unless you are doing vet stuff, as far as I can tell, horses aren't rocket science. People make it hard for whatever reason. That is why I...

    The best thing I can tell you that has worked for...

    The best thing I can tell you that has worked for 99.9% of the horses I have dealt with (excluding the Parelli horses in the other posts), don't do anything emotionally. Keep a cool head. When...

    Growing up, on the family ranch, I remember seeing horses laid down after being roped. Generally, these were rank SOB's and that is how they got their first handling. But they were laid down (after...

    I meant like a flathatter or a cowboy who makes his living riding horses and appreciates a fine moving/well trained horse. Not someone who basically found the hat and calls himself that. I live out...

    From a few owners I have seen, even if you are familiar with his methods, their horses were still pain in the necks and hard to work with. I don't understand it, Pep himself used to be a pretty...

    Oh, wait, he has something going on with his fetlocks? Well, forget the working cowhorse scenario, he wouldn't hold up and be in worse shape. :(

    That would be the trick to find a real cowboy who would take a horse like this on, but sometimes a change of pace or owners, horse will change and do better. Maybe he needs a working job and...

    My thought exactly. See if you can send him to a working cow/calf operation. He'll get all those silly thoughts out of his head in a NY minute.

    After reading the posts here, I have to ask, are they THAT common? In my decades of horses and care, I've had a whopping one and it was the mother of all blow outs. The mare came around sound...

    When I walk behind almost any horse, unless it is totally wild and willing to die and take me with them (not likely happening, I'm too old for that shite,) I run my hand along its hip to the dock of...

    I haven't read all the responses, skipped to the last page.

    All I can say is good luck with the mind blown horses. I've inadvertantly (sp?) bought a couple of them a few years ago, will never,...

    I am there now, onliest I am waaayyy older than you!

    Gave my saddle horse to a 10 year old girl, have two youngsters out there right now. Two two year olds. Haven't a clue what I'm to do with...

    I would have to look up Popmoney, never heard of it. I'm already committed to the other lady, about the books. Seems like it will be fine, guess I'll find out!!

    Oh, boy. I have some horse books for sale. A lady wants them somewhere on the east coast, I'm on the west coast. I said I will use Paypal only because I thought it would protect us BOTH. Maybe,...

    I have always been an Appy and Polish Arab girl, but I had a BLM gelding who was the best thing going. From Burns, OR. Just recently gave him to a home with a herd of little girls.

    I have two...

    My attention span isn't long enough to read it all, but this sounds similar to the case in NV where there were some neglected horses (she used to be a member here), the county stepped in with a...

    I didn't read all posts, my attention span isn't working at any length today, so, sorry if someone has said this.
