    okay moved him out today into his new home! He's only going to be at this barn a month or so. It's a beautiful barn full of hunter/jumpers and even some fox hunters. They all have huge horses and of...

    Oh I totally agree about looking at the horse in front of you. This is what I was trying to tell the BO that day. She kept talking about horses in general and I was telling her I know my horse and I...

    He looks beautiful! I'm going to look into the Purina Enrich. My Southern States doesn't sell purina. I think Tractor Supply does though.

    ECarr, I've been reading about ration balancers. The guy at my local feed store had no idea what I was talking about. But I want to look into them again. Do you have a brand you recommend? Also what...

    newhorsemommy do they not feed grain in California? I'd be fine if they were giving hay pellets or cubes but they are getting grain pellets and cheap ones at that. This past year our pastures didn't...

    Dare I ask what a JB situation is? Maybe someone can post a thread or pm me. I'm sure it's something that's been hashed to death but I don't know what it is.

    californiainkansas, how have I never heard of rate my horse pro? I'm going to check it out and I don't mind reviewing this place there. Then people can choose whether it's something they like or...

    ECarr I've been surprised too. Not to sound like I'm picking on Western barns but it seems to be the English barns that have better quality care in my area. I'm primarily a western rider these days...

    Ecarr this is exactly what I'm doing. Funny you mention the cubes. My horse loves them! More than hay
    The hay is hay cubes of Standlee brand timothy/alfalfa with low starch grains mixed in. I've...

    I'm so glad it's not just me. The BO was kind of chuckling at me.

    The pellets are Southern States brand Select pellets. So nothing special.

    I have learned my lesson never to assume anything....
  11. My horse is not getting hay this winter. This is not okay, right?

    We are in the process of moving so I'm boarding my horse at this local place here in central Virginia from now until March. The horses all live out on pasture with run ins. The pastures look pretty...

    okay that's good to know. The horse people I know in person said they didn't think it would be a problem but I wanted to ask here first before doing the project. I'll keep checking back on this...

    That's a good point about ventilation. I wonder what the best way would be to have some kind of airflow. I'll ask my husband. He's pretty handy. I'm diligent about stall cleaning so that should help....

    Is air conditioning bad for horses?

    We have a large shed/workshop that is detached from the house with vaulted ceilings. Half is my husband's workshop that he only uses on weekends. We were thinking of turning the other half into two...
  15. can you post his name here or do you have to PM?...

    can you post his name here or do you have to PM? I'm in central VA but I'd love to have a name on file in case I ever need it!
  16. That is a really good idea. I have an old...

    That is a really good idea. I have an old pillowcase here I can use. I really want to know this for any future horse I ride. Of course if the saddle isn't fitting and I point that out, I highly doubt...

    Workinghunter, thank you! I truly do put a lot of thought, maybe too much thought into a horse's overall well being. I believe they work their best just like people, when their mind and body are...
  18. ahh okay. Well this gelding is pretty darn close...

    ahh okay. Well this gelding is pretty darn close to the color of the horse in that photo. I haven't seen any marks like that on him but I will definitely take a closer look when I'm there. Thank you...
  19. I agree. It was just so frustrating because when...

    I agree. It was just so frustrating because when I'd ask to take him just around the barn and fields my trainer kept saying it's going to take time before I'm ready to do that. I am ready. I'm a...
  20. I'd feel horrible if this was the case. Thinking...

    I'd feel horrible if this was the case. Thinking he's hating his job when he's really in pain. She checked him and said the saddle fit fine. I had her check all of his tack. How exactly do you know...
  21. Yes this is definitely the type of barn that it...

    Yes this is definitely the type of barn that it is. I wouldn't know any better except that where I used to live I rode at a beautiful hunter barn. So there have been a few shocking things at this...
  22. alto, thanks but I think I'm probably...

    alto, thanks but I think I'm probably non-confrontational moreso than classy. Stuff like this just makes me want to slink away and hope they don't notice I'm gone. :lol:
  23. You all are so right. Shakytails I didn't think...

    You all are so right. Shakytails I didn't think of the 14-15 hand horse being not a size in demand since they are too big to be a pony but too small some other things. I guess that's a good thing for...
  24. It's funny I've spoken to a few people in real...

    It's funny I've spoken to a few people in real life who have said the same thing about the trainer. What I think is the deal with this trainer is that while she has experience out the yin-yang, right...

    DieBlaueReiterin (love the name!) you crack me up. I know the more I'm talking about this guy the more I'm thinking I'm getting hosed on the price. I'm actually thankful he's not a really lovey type...
