    I wasn't suggesting that the 9 year old should have the final say. Rather, my point was that since the horse was initially bought for the child, the child's thinking and feelings on the horse needed...

    Just to be clear, I wasn't the author of all of the snips in the post above.:lol:

    Since we're all making assumptions, I'll go ahead and make some of my own.

    In reading the OP, I don't get the sense that the horse is aggressive. In the snip posted recently, about "moving into...

    Yes, I would agree with what most of the other posters have said. The seller did not exactly lie to you: it's pretty clear in her email that the horse has had little to no training, and had not been...

    I'd be in favor of just kicking him out into a pasture for a year and then see what happens. Obviously he'd have to be healed enough to do that.

    It might not cure it, and then you'd probably have...

    Gives the phrase "the look of eagles" a whole new spin.

    Very cool.

    Having him tested for lyme disease is pretty affordable. The test itself is something like $125 plus the vet call for taking the blood sample. Absolutely lyme disease can cause these type of chronic...

    All of this is reminiscent of the old joke: "How many psychologists does it take to change a light bulb? Just one, but the light bulb has to *want* to change."

    The tree width measurements for saddles are not really all that helpful in trying to figure out what might work on a particular horse.

    Really, the best thing to do is to either send wither...

    What does his coat look like? You could also add some ground flax: perhaps a cup or two a day.

    Also just to ask: what is the horse's de-worming status? Specifically, when was he last wormed for...

    Oddly enough, I have both.

    The Smartpack one is 3 years old, and I just bought the Rhino this past fall (it's the Wug version).

    I like them both. The Smartpack has been very durable: no rips...

    Be careful with the soft hay. When my mare choked several years ago it was on soft, recently cut hay, and not on pellets.

    You can damp the hay down as well, or put it into a hay net to slow the...

    Is there any advantage to using Equimax in the fall instead of Quest Plus? They both take care of tapeworms, and Quest Plus also hits encysted strongyles.

    You could try a double-jointed baucher (if you haven't already). A lot of horses prefer the feel of a baucher.

    You could try one like this:...

    If you have your own horse, as a starting point you should figure out what saddles will fit your horse, and then go from there.

    I have two Rambo mid-weight blankets (which is as heavy as i usually need to use, although my horse is also unclipped), and one Rhino Wug sheet, all turn-outs.

    I have the Ovation version and like it a lot. It's especially good if you adjust your girth from time to time from the saddle.

    The only downside as far as I'm concerned is that because it's...

    I know that you've had a chiro adjust her, but have you had a vet who used either accupuncture or accu-laser? My mare who has had some chronic muscle tightness in the back has always benefited from...

    I really like the dam too. She looks like a horse that knows her job, listens to her rider and enjoys the trip. The fact that she's so calm and focused makes me think that her son will also have...

    I like mine and my mare does seem to prefer it. It's possible that it's because it does keep the bit more still in the mouth, it's also possible that the placement of the various straps don't impinge...
