  1. This Only Happens If You Have Your Horses Home

    Spin-off of the "Do you regret bringing your horses home" thread. King and I started our relationship at a boarding barn, so no hating from me on that system.

    But the blessings of having horses...

    I wear one every time I work in the barn, whether mucking, cleaning, moving hay around, or spending any more than an hour. But, I have hyper-reactive airways and have to use an air cleaner even...

    GotMyPony -- yes, I have 4WD, 4 doors and a full-sized back seat. But add 100,000 to our mileage (172,000).

    I'm sorry that I don't remember the cost, we had some other work done, too at the same...

    RAyers -- yes, that's it! Very cool, thanks for the visuals!
  5. 2001 F250 w/ 7.3L Engine -- Happy with MPG After Mechanic Works His Magic

    Just thought this might be worthwhile news for others who are getting dismal mileage on their trucks -- and with diesel $1 more per gallon than gasoline, it does hurt.

    We took our 2001 F250 with...

    My favorite tip from an experienced trailering horsewoman when I asked about backing up. "Well, honey," she said, "it's very easy if you remember one thing.

    Always Be Going Forward."

    :lol:

    No advice here, as every horse and every human is different. But yes, I have to chime in with my good FREE HORSE story, too.

    I got Elijah, a 17h Oldenburg, through the CoTH Giveaway board. That...

    I am saving my pennies now for a horse in the $10k range. Not a done deal, but he seems suitable for showing at (or a little above) my level, and sane enough for dinking around, too. Plus he is...

    I'm 58 and would not use social media, but I have to as part of my work. I get tired of it, find it sometimes intrusive and also have concerns about privacy. But I am a social media professional, so...

    Bluey -- I think my vet is leaning toward an allergy to white clover and the Cushing's / IR as our primary problems.

    We are working with a local farmer now who is helping us with our pastures. We...

    Great photos, thanks for sharing! And a wonderful idea -- hope you don't mind if I steal it as my granddaughter's birthday is coming up soon!

    Just got the BEST news from our vet! Parker (the perfect pony) is getting well! All of his blood work that we drew this week shows tremendous improvement! While his liver enzymes are still somewhat...

    I just want to add something here. Riding is not a passive sport. Seriously -- you have to ride every horse. If you're not going to ride the horse, then get off and go put a quarter in the horse at...

    Just to chime in -- there are ways to express one's opinion, displeasure, etc., that are appropriate, and then there are inappropriate ways. This boarder chose the inappropriate way. Not okay.

    I got a private message from a trailer dealer explaining how to add a butt bar. I believe I will show this to our dealer when I take the trailer in for it's annual maintenance next month.

    SLW -- I...

    I think this discussion has convinced me of a few things: 1. More work on standing and WAITING calmly; 2. Get a butt bar installed or 3. Don't haul a 3rd horse.

    I haven't boarded for years, but I used to - and where I boarded the BM was also the trainer and made their $$ off of a robust lesson program. In that situation, I can see charging a ring fee. It...

    I use panic straps on my trailer ties, so if a horse pulls back hard, they release. Having said that, I also untie and use a helper outside the head window to hold while I get the horse. However,...
  20. Trailering Question -- No Divider or Butt Bar on 3rd stall of 3H slant

    I just realized that there is no stall divider or butt bar for the third stall on my 3H slant trailer. I have never hauled three horses, but I was just wondering -- is this safe?

    My trailer is a...

    So smart! Not sure I would want one, but almost pre-made for what a lot of us do when camping and sleeping in the horse quarters!

    FalseImpression -- we did not figure out for sure what caused Parker's liver enzymes to go off the chart. Personally, I am thinking it is all Cushings-related.

    We are waiting to get back the...

    I found it very comforting to give my King a great bath, shine him up, spit and polish. He loffed it and so did I. I kept telling him he had to look his best to cross The Bridge, and that he should...

    Parker has been released back to work and has had 3 recent lessons with his girl Lexi. Today, being Halloween, she dressed up like a cat. I wish you could have seen Parker's face when he saw her!...
