    Maybe you are not an OTTB type person. Some people fit better with a different type of horse. My family loves Irish Draughts and Irish Draught Sport horses. They don't have much of a spook and are...

    I would get an opinion from one of the vets at Morven Park when you go there to get the shoes. If you can figure out the problem, it makes it easier for the guys in the farrier shop to fix the...

    Yes, Jen-s, it was scary. The daughter tries to be safety conscious, but a hoof going into the loop made by the end of the reins was just not a possibility that either of us had considered. It was so...

    ITP is not rare in children. I wonder if any of the human treatments like IVIG work for horses.
