    Most of my clients have a regular due-date, that they hit within a day or two either way. If "circumstances" arise, causing them to be substantially late, I either...

    I bought my very well-bred Walker mare as a weanling for $500.00, and boarded her for the next 3 1/2 years with the breeder in a very, very relatively inexpensive part of the country...

    Having raised two high-energy puppies in as many years (Aussie and Lab), as I get older I definitely see myself seeking out an older dog, who comes with dogly manners and work ethic pre-installed. ...

    I have a young mare in my own pasture right now who would be highly saleable as a broodmare because of her desirable bloodlines (QH) and color (red roan) alone; she went lame at age 4 with a likely...

    Stop psychoanalyzing. On some subjects, if you're not angry it's because you're not paying attention. As in, "out of sight, out of mind." The "unwanted horse" problem starts with perpetual...

    OP, the very fact that you had 5 hours and a tank of gas to blow on a lesson puts this squarely in the "First World Problems" column.

    The bottom line here, OP, is this place is "run" by a pack of unprofessional yahoos.
