    I've known some farriers who fit the shoe a touch wider to give the hoof space to grow over the shoeing cycle. Others seems to fit the shoe very tight. If the farrier is leaving breathing room for...

    Only one I've personally known was a Friesian/TB. Both hinds and painfully apparent at age 3. Owner was actively marketing her as a dressage prospect and took extreme offense to the suggestion that...

    As a currently horseless AA I never get sick of reading about the success stories of other AAs moving up the levels. Hearing from pros and individuals with massive budgets is still inspiring, but I...

    Anything Horsey in Vegas?

    Work is sending me to Vegas for a week. I'm stuck in a conference 8-5 every day but my nights are open. I won't have a car so I'll have to Uber or Taxi anywhere. I'm staying in the heart of the strip...

    People who use being an eventer as an excuse for dirty tack and grimy saddle pads. The eventers I know and respect are upstanding horsewomen (and men). They prioritize clean and well fitting tack at...

    Four feet is barely an effort for an athlete so I think the combo is a good idea. A hedge barrier also seems like a great idea but will take a few years to really come in.

    In general I think it is good to delay neutering until after 12 months IF it is feasible for the owner. Some males get too testosterone filled or the owner may not want to oversight and...

    No shelter with highs in the 70s wouldn't even cause me to consider pausing. I don't worry at all about day turnout until the temperature is in the high 80s. Even in Georgia with highs well into the...

    Glad to hear a positive review. I didn't realize that he's within a feasible driving distance of me. Being horseless presents a slight challenge but I'll be keeping an eye out for local clinics with...

    I love happy updates. I think getting a pro with a good seat out so quickly will save you a ton of frustration. It sounds like the pro is already helping you build in the good habits and positive...

    Communication is critical and so individual.

    My SO also has a expensive and time consuming hobby so he really encourages horses. However, I am currently horse free, so even if he is pushing me to...

    There will always be railbirds. I'd rather have a qualified railbird making a questionable but accurate comment than someone who does know the back end from the front end of a horse.

    I'm excited...

    I love seeing the support for wearing helmets.

    I always have and will always wear a helmet. If I ever doubt my need for one I just need to call up the memory of watching a gentle lesson horse go...

    I adore UGA and have been there a frustrating number of times over the years. They would be a great resource. At a minimum they should know who to recommend in the area.

    If you can support a third horse I'd look for a really high quality college student or adult with a flexible schedule who wants to provide their feed and work off board. Depending on the ratio of...

    I am so sorry. Mine are inside only for this reason. Currently, with the exception of one 18 year old pet store purchase, everyone spread across four homes is an indoor-only formerly feral or found...

    What a fantastic update. I am so happy for you. Please continue to post updates!!!

    While I know that any horse can get melanomas the prospect of having a much higher chance with a gray makes me very leery. Aesthetically, I do not find inherently more or less appealing than any...

    I feel like posting a video on here takes a lot of guts, but it may be really helpful. Sometimes people offer up really valid suggestions that may be totally inappropriate for the horse/rider combo....
  20. Discovered Growth on Paw Pad..Talk me off the Ledge

    I hate being in a new town, with no vet, and a new job with no leave, and everything else imbedded in uprooting my life (minus wonderful SO).

    Last night I was trimming little mans toe nails and...

    They are absolutely not economical right now, but what if they were? If they were high-quality and widely available for $10k I think they would be a fantastic option. There is no substitute for...

    I strongly disagree. I think the *vast* majority of horses buck to express discomfort.

    However, I know of several horses who have undergone extensive work ups, chiro, saddle fit, etc, etc, etc....
