I am not at all sure that Laurie will even be back to read all the lovely supportive comments and LauraKY's apology. She has moved on. Because of this thread.
Congratulations! After a 30 plus year break, I bought my guy 6 years ago as my 50th birthday present to myself! You are going to have SO much fun!!
What a story! Congratulations on all of your progress. A mounting accident?!?!? I had one of those too recently and all I can say is t hank God for helmets, although nothing other than my pride...
To clarify, GforaG, I told her that IIRC you had said that there were plenty of boarding barns in the area, just not good ones. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.
GforaG, you were exactly the COTH member I wanted to reach with this post. She has a car. She doesn't have to have an indoor but it would be nice. Living on campus - in a pre-med program, so...
A really great girl who boards with me is going to UMass in the fall and wants to take her horse. Does anybody know of a good but not expensive option in or near Hadley? TIA.
I purchased both of my purebred Persian kittens from what some of the preachy here would call backyard breeders. Granted, Parents were health certified and tested for 3 generations. But that...
Amen, Misty Blue. And I t hink she's gone now because of this. Really, people.
We have bird feeders, I am thinking that is what attracts them.
I don't know how they did it but it was adorable!
Thanks for all of the suggestions. Husband found some stuff that is supposed to repel them. If that doesn't work I guess we'll be doing the Havaheart trap thing. Good to know about Macadamia nuts!
Aww, what a beautiful girl. It is obvious how much you both loved her. HUGS. And I am so sorry about your mother in law.
Laurie, he is adorable. Congratulations.
Mr. OR has declared war. They are digging holes all over his beloved and immacutely maintained lawn. I love the little buggers but agree with him that this has got to stop. We've never had a...
Yes, it really does help. When I finally managed to get my very fearful adoptee into a carrier to get him to the vet (and this in itself took a LOOONG time) the vet doused himself and a blanket with...
Congratulations, Emily and Dottie! They are adorable!
No. Paso Finos are descended from horses brought to the "New World" from Spain. Originally a combination of Arab, Barb, and Jennet. Originally found in Puerto Rico and Columbia. There is a...
20 years?!?!? That's awful. My condolences. Mine are almost gone now. I have used Flax Seed oil, don't know if it really helped or not, maybe placebo effect, but it's good for you anyway.
Take a look at the thread titled "Got Bit Today" in Menagerie - lots of useful suggestions there.
^^ This. I am a pretty good driver, I think but I find hauling my horse to be very stressful and even driving our 3/4 ton pickup by itself is VERY different from driving a car.
I agree with once you try one and like it you are never going to go back. My Paso Fino is definitely pretty hot, but there are lots out there that are not. I tried to teach mine to canter on...
Yes!! Yes, you should get a gaited horse. I bought my Paso when I was 50 (am now 56) and it is just the nicest, smoothest ride ever!
Yes, I believe it is public. It is sheer awesomeness.
