    Luckily the photographer is a horse friend, and the realtor we think we'll use comes from a horsey family and sold us the house initially (it was her sisters place). She knows the place pretty well...
  2. Selling a farm: listing photos question

    Our hobby farm will be listed for sale this fall/winter (we do not get to control when, work relocation). Since photos of a farm under snow don't look so great, we're having exterior photos taken...

    Iluvmybuttercups --Your email is viewable and public on your profile here. Seems how she got many of ours!


    I sure hope she sees this and realizes her attempts at marketing have backfired, and I...

    This was also the site that required sign up but people hesitated because of the lack of privacy policy.

    Guess we see where they stand!

    Aha, have discovered my email was viewable on my COTH profile. Think I've changed that now, but still unimpressed at this new company seemingly fishing emails off COTH profiles.

    Still curious if...
  6. New Tack Hunter site -- getting unsolicited emails

    So another poster recently announced her new tack trader/hunter site on here. Not sure if the mods deleted it due to advertising or not. I cannot remember who it was or I'd shoot her a message...

    I appreciate everyone sharing their stories and letting me know I'm not alone.

    Between my stretch of bad horse luck in general and this horse being so special to me, it's just too much.

    As far...
  8. Mourning horse's retirement -- seems almost worse than when their time comes

    Facing retiring my beloved gelding. Already retired my 8 year old (loaded with potential, but only owned him a short time before hip arthritis became career limiting, so not quite as...
  9. PRP a year into tendon injury - any point?

    Slight DDFT and check ligament inflammation, no tears, diagnosed May 2015. Followed the rest protocol, handwalking, tack walking, and then was still off, so backed off. Horse still not quite right...

    Find him a new home, you should enjoy riding.

    Also, if he sits for the better part of a month, it's hard to expect him to be wonderful when you do ride or put him to work. I've got one who's a...

    For people lacking common sense and/or basic safe horsemanship, there are not enough rules to keep them (and you) safe. For every rule you impose, they will come up with several other unsafe and...

    I have 5.5 acres, with only about 3 in paddocks. Currently have 5 paddocks/fields with connecting gates (easier to rotate or open them all up). My main, most established two paddocks are roughly...

    I have 3 horses on 5.5 acres. Probably only about 3 acres in paddocks (5, with connecting gates). I rotate and also tape off a smaller area as a sacrifice space for the time needed in spring and...

    I imported. Meant paying taxes/duty on my trailer at the boarder, plus required an inspection. With the exchange rate as it is, it would have to be a REALLY good price.
  16. I bought over the boarder years ago when our...

    I bought over the boarder years ago when our dollar was better than parity, and it worked out significantly in my favour. Right now, I wouldn't even consider it.

    I think it depends too what you...

    As the horse moves up, it likely is a more complicated ride (or feels like it, because of the mental aspect). As the horses owner has moved up, she was riding the levels you've worked all the kinks...

    Crap, went to edit my post and deleted it!

    Eliana commented on the video on Facebook that she wasn't wearing one. Video isn't very clear. Glad she's using her position and accident to speak up!
