    I had one that was the constant rescheduler. She'd overbook herself and expect all her clients to adjust when she inevitably ran late. I full understand the horse business, and things happen, but it...

    Also remember which discipline the buyer might be from. My mare is worth 2x as an unproven Eq horse/jumper that she was as an eventer or dressage horse.

    It would depend on the situation. A planned horse purchase? Nope. Even though we have separate hobby budgets, we do try and keep the other one informed.

    Capri has been incredibly unethical to work with, both by myself and other's experiences. Things like demanding thousands of dollars of tests before they'd be allowed to put a horse down, then...

    The only thing I'd disagree with this on is for ulcer preventatives/digestive aids. I only have 2-3 days grace on that one. For anything else, it usually takes at least a week to see any changes, and...

    I had an Antares that worked surprsingly well on a number of horses. I'd also suggest investing in a good shim pad so you can make minor tweaks. Not only more comfortable for the horse, but it can...

    Those that have horses "just have pets" tend to be less in the "better a day too early" camp. Mr Ibex was horrified when I pointed out that putting down a 28yo broodmare on her home turf when the...

    How bad is the required repair? If it's usable as-is, that would be a smoking deal.

    I recently sold my 2006 Antares with a deep mark on the seat (it looked like the previous owner had come off and...

    Well, my opinion is based in personal experience of multiple horses from various mares and breeders, so I think there's something to that. I also knew FP in his old age and he was a grouchy old...
