    Hey now. I ask my peeps to print for me. Not because I don't know how to print; I am not a moron, nor am I lazy, and I don't care about the "admin" stigma. It takes 10-15 minutes to print a big...

    Agreed. My NSH was gentle as a lamb around my kids, and completely bombproof. But he did not trust men, and was a handful under saddle.

    I am confused.... You wanted a horse that needed training, and that is exactly what you got. I'm not seeing anything in your friend's email that seems deceitful. Perhaps your friend misunderstood...

    My Nelson's have been a bit finicky. They are probably 15 years old now, and seems like every year I have one with a bad heating element or failed thermostat. Still beats lugging water in the cold...

    Big giant pile. Let it cook. It will magically turn into glorious dirt.

    Then in the spring, I put an ad on craigslist and give the whole darned thing away to gardeners.

    I see it as a term of the partnership between horse and human, not possession.

    I call my daughter's leased pony "her pony" -- as does everyone who meets him. When other adults speak to her,...

    I am so very sorry - this is the worst situation to be in. I agree with the above posters that pain is the likely source of his behavior change.

    I had a horse who developed a cyst in his...

    I work on a lot of affordable housing, both family and senior, and I can assure you that at least in my area, these buildings are AWESOME. They win design awards, are well maintained, and most have...

    In case anyone is still following this, the owner DID find him a home. Thank goodness.

    I would avoid it. We used it for our driveway, and even with magnets, 5 years later I am STILL picking up metal bits. Thick wire, bits of rebar, all kids of nasties. I would not use it again. If it...

    No. If she had been training on that pony for months, she had plenty of opportunity to buy him herself. Unless this benefits you and pony somehow, you do not need to be financing someone else's show...

    I don't believe in anthropomorphizing this sort of thing with a "he just likes you better" excuse. Your lessee must be doing something different. Maybe she uses a different saddle or pad, maybe her...

    Nope, lease is not an option, they really want to get rid of him. They are quite serious about taking him to auction, it is not an idle threat, but they would certainly rather find him a home. I am...

    We are passing. Thank you all for the dose of reality. :(

    Hoping to try to help the owner rehome him to an appropriate place - he really is such a sweetheart.

    Thanks all. I think you are all telling me what I know in my logical brain to be true, but oh, that sweet face and kind eye. My illogical heart and my logical brain are still arguing.

    It's quite common here actually! We have several trick riding and vaulting groups in the area. I do appreciate the horse that still has a relaxed, sweet expression while someone is standing on his...

    Would take a horse with ringbone?

    In the search for a bombproof move-up horse for the kiddos, we came across a saint of a horse who was diagnosed with low ringbone, confirmed by my vet. Horse is pretty much a giveaway and the owner...

    My tip: Clip them wet! Like right after a bath. The blades run much smoother and you don't get hair up your nose. Or in your bra. Waaaaaay better than show sheen.

    Then don't do it until he chills out. It's not going to hurt him to just hang out. Put the ramp up and down several times until he gets over it and quits pushing on the butt bar. I never unload...
