    It sounds like the horse needs much more hay than what he is being fed. It sounds like the horse needs more shavings. In what universe is $35 a week worth anything, such that one would even agreed...

    In my limited experience, which was life-altering for the better, you don't need a swale or ditch. All you're doing is replacing a foot of organic material that turns to mud in wet weather with a...

    The medication that the vet marked, "Give daily" while you were standing in front of him, nodding your head, is meant to be given every day. When you say "water troughs in every turnout," I assume...

    Okay. I am just going to put this out as one grouchy opinion, which you may feel free to ignore. I HATE the moniker "equestrian center" unless the facility really is a major center for all things...

    South Woodstock — Ruth Thompson, of Dublin, N.H., leaned against a stall at the Green Mountain Horse Association Friday and stroked the face of Gallant Lad.

    But, Lilitiger, you are a much nicer person than I am. :-)

    Yes, the friend deserves compassion appropriate to someone who had a bad night and possibly had a blackout (but I think he just fell...

    Well, with all due respect and compassion to you and your friend, I don't think you're being an awful person at all. His experience is not your experience; I don't think he has the right to assume...

    Just wanted to share a cute story. We fostered a dog who was being rehomed after growling and then finally biting (no skin broken) the family's four-year old, who was known to poke, prod, sit on, and...

    I think if you go north, west, or south of Worcester, you would be able to find options for your budget. The Waltham commuter just needs to accept that their commute could be close to 1.5 hours each...

    Just to defend my town :-) Sudbury is a very easy commute to Worcester (you'll ooh and aah the whole way about how nice a reverse commute is). But, the main reason you live in Sudbury is for the...

    With only six boarders, I am wondering if it would be hard to get any momentum going for these extra activities?

    You know, OP, if these are your dream jobs, it is one option to give your animals into the care of a good friend for a year or two and go take the dream job, rent an apartment in downtown San...

    In Massachusetts, one hour west of Boston, that costs me $900, and I am grateful it even exists. In this area, good care plus good turnout plus good facilities are rare no matter what the price.

    Ohhhh, my! What a handsome fella! He looks like he had quite the life. Thank you for all you did for him. Much beer and giant hay bales to Kip in heaven, and many hugs to the OP.

    It sounds like something chiropractic, but, I would put him on daily Previcoxx regardless. Made a huge difference for my horse.

    1) The fact that my body wants to continue the same bad habits it had 40 years ago, despite now having a trainer (and horse) who is fantastic, patient, and understands what she is dealing with.

    Just in case it hasn't really sunken in:

    1) Scrape off top layer (8-12 inches) of high-traffic area, using bobcat.
    2) Lay down geotextile fabric. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.
    3) Cover with gravel...

    Appreciate him for who he is.

    I have to work harder and in less-healthy conditions than does my horse. :-)

    I know this is not the case for many horses, very sadly, but, speaking only for myself and my horse: If you were to...
