    I have only boarded at 1 barn. That was for 13 years, so maybe I was spoiled to have a BO who could actually deal with people and keep the 150+ horses there healthy and happy.

    She got off, beat the crap out of him when he was only balking the first time ( read the op). The next time, after repeated attempts to get him to move, he went up before she could dismount . I have...

    I had to switch farriers also. He just couldn't get my horse right. I got a recommendation from my vet and then just started with the new one. He did a great job too. If he doesn't get a call for...

    So you can afford it without having boarders? If it was me I would talk in length with the owner and find out what type of boarders they are. Good, Bad?

    Be very strict with the amount of carbs you eat at every meal. Portion size and knowing how many carbs are actually in the food you are eating is key.

    Because we are such a sex obsessed society that is all the more reason for modesty . The girl can't help what she is exposed to, but I would expect the adults in her life to try and keep her...

    I don't have any experience with it, but could he be tying up? Beating the crap out of him is unproductive, especially when it causes him to shake. If he is agreeable in every other instance then...

    My horses share a pasture with my herd of goats. We never have to trim anything. Spraying would be my second choice.

    We had them in our alfalfa field in MN when we moved in. They did a lot of damage, not to mention my fear that they would get into the horses or goats fields. My dogs did a great job of encouraging...

    OP-- You have a young horse who is balking not only on the trail , but in the arena. The problem is that when you have an agreeable , mellow horse, you...

    You are giving him a lot of " stuff" with his feed. It could be that some things don't taste good when mixed together. I have never fed "wet" food to my horses, but we do to some of our tiny...

    A muzzle is going to limit her ability to eat her hay and give the boys the chance to eat hers. This will make her more hungry and aggressive at protecting her hay. She may not bite but can still...

    60 x60 isn't that big an area, he is not fat now,and it sounds like it is not a very nutritious grass/ weed mixture. I wouldn't worry about it at all. If you need peace of mind, just mow it down...

    I can't remember the model number, but we had 4 Ritchie waterers at one place that I loved because of the large opening and the fact that the animals couldn't get to the float itself.

    If he is in from 3 pm till 6 am with 2 flakes of hay he is probably bored silly & hungry. This might be where he stands to interact with the neighbor horses ( chew spot on each side) and maybe just...

    He obviously wasn't always a stray. We had a cat just show up at our place who hadn't been cared for in a long time. After 2 days of food, you couldn't keep her off of you and she would follow me...
