    The old Texas horse trader who sold us our first horse told us a pigeon-toed horse would never fall down.

    My cousin claimed mares were't favored as working horses on his ranch because they were...

    I LOVE looking at pedigrees and following them back into the Dark Ages. I had a sweet gelding with Skipper W in his pedigree -- no surprise because he stood in Alamosa, not far from the ranch my...

    The mare IS lucky to be with OP, who's doing the best she can for the animal. There are worse things than euthanization, if that's what she ultimately needs. I'd trust the OP to do the right thing.

    Manni, the OP is trying to figure out what's wrong with the horse. The horse is not aware of the "labels" applied to her. She only knows she hurts somewhere or reacts in ways that humans find...

    I was another who played "horse", on two legs and "four". My Huffy bike was a "horse", too.

    All that horseplay stopped once I got a real horse.

    I've been watching this thread off and on -- has anyone suggested this?:D

    OP, I think you're an awesome person! Love the update. This boarder sounds like a manipulative character who can't learn to play well with others (or your barn staff).

    I have a friend who had a partial cremation done of her favorite horse -- heart, head & hooves. She keeps these partial cremains in an urn.

    Perhaps that would satisfy the owners in terms of...

    I use a Neue Schule bradoon as a regular snaffle on my gelding and he likes it. I can also use this same bit on my double bridle.

    They are great bits and nicely engineered.

    I don't trim whiskers or eyelashes. Guard hairs for the early spring shows, yes, so my horse doesn't look like a goat, and I clean up his legs, dock and bridle path.

    This year I roached his mane...

    Piedmontfield's exercise is excellent. I use this all the time with my horse.

    Years ago, an instructor recommended plenty of canter in the warm-up for a tight-backed OTTB mare.

    The first thing that came to mind is this:

    Sit the trot most of the time to start. Now and then post a stride, but keep going at trot. If she handles that OK, try posting two or three strides in a...

    I switched to the Prolite/Faifax design from the Total Saddle Fit girth. Total Saddle Fit got it ALMOST right. Agree the leather Fairfax is nice and soft, but $$$. The Prolite looks & feels like...

    I can't defend Trump, but IMO, many of these "protesters" are "rent-a-rioters" (like "Black Lives Matter") or people who riot for "fun".

    Fairfax and its less expensive clone, Prolite have added stability to my saddle and the saddles one of my students uses on her very round witherless Morgans.

    Best girth I've ever owned.

    Mmmmmm! Burgers!:yes:

    Don't bite the hand that feeds you. Farmers and ranchers sustain us all. You may not agree with every method of farming or livestock raising. Too damn bad. Food producers...

    Sascha is correct. Cows do spend a lot of time lying down, whether healthy or not. A true "downer cow" needs euthanasia.

    I believe this cow is on the mend, it's just taking a while. There's...

    Good cowboys are good horsemen. We've got a fellow here in Colorado who worked with a client's horse that did not do well in busy arenas. By the time this guy was done with the horse, he could ride...

    Well, I hope the OP keeps us updated on the cow's condition. It sounds to me like she is recovering, however slowly, from the apparent calving paralysis.

    Some things require time and patience,...

    When I first got my gelding, he was afraid of dogs. Any dogs. Like shaking all over afraid. After he met and interacted with my para student's service dogs, he got over it. He sort of had to. He was...

    1. Have a good cowboy introduce your horse to moving cattle quietly and gently. Chasing cows is not good for the livestock OR...

    Guessing the cow is up and taking nourishment now, which does not fit in with OP's insistence she was "dying" and her owner is a big mean poopie head.

    Red Barn, look in the mirror if you want to...

    Oh, no, I'm pretty sure the OP would WANT to inform us of the cow's demise.

    However, without proof, we may never know what happened to poor Elsie.

    Well, according to the OP, the cow is skin and bones. OP hasn't offered to show us video of this cow, but the fact that (evidently) she's still alive indicates that she is recovering, albeit slowly....
