    Just my 2 cents...sounds as though this boarder needs to sell or lease Chaz and NOT get another horse. She has confidence issues, she has big medical bills and she doesn't get out to the barn. Or...

    Don't wait any longer to get started. I tell everyone that getting a trailer changed my equine life. I've made many new friends and done loads of fun stuff I couldn't do before.
    If there is a...

    I'm sorry this has happened to you (and to your BIL). It's always the few rotten apples that ruin it for everyone. Of course the best case is always when the good hunters find out who the bad guys...

    I have a Shires tweed coat and I love it. I'm sure it will hold up for as long as he can fit into it, and then you can sell it on to another family. Glad you found one.

    My sister lived in that area for quite a while (Santa Rosa). Real estate is extraordinarily expense, and commuting times are long. Are you wedded to owning property? You might be better off...

    I have to admit when I read the title of your post I was picturing a new "reality" show on Discovery or A & E. I'm sorry the reality was not as light & entertaining as that. It stinks to have to...

    Thank you everyone! Looks like Trojan is out of stock for the winter but I'll start looking around here. I'll also check with my relatives who are dairy farmers, they might have a local lead for me.

    That sounds like what we need! Do you know where to find one? I've also looked into something that would just keep the water moving but the pumps require more electricity than I can scare up with a...
  10. Has anyone seen a propane heater for a stock tank?

    Where I board the paddocks are quite a long ways from the barn. There is no water line out to the paddocks, so we have to haul water using the gator, and there's no electricity there to run an...

    Those ranchtanks look interesting but they're pricy. A friend told me that their neighbor used a pump to circulate air around the docks at his lake house to keep it from freezing so he could leave...

    "Trainers" or "Clinicians" like this continue to exist because people continue to pay them. Too many riders mistake harshness for useful criticism or believe that a certain level of accomplishment...

    I vote for the tank with a heater. I wrapped my tank with 2" thick upholstery foam that I slid into waterproof contractor bags to insulate the tank. We were able to unplug the heaters during the...

    1920's house with oil furnace and old fashioned cast iron radiators (not steam). Programmable thermostat is at 58 at night, comes up to 64 for wake up, down to 60 during the day when I'm at work and...

    As fourmares says, it depends on the horse. And sometimes on their mood. My pony had that setup. I think she's just laze. In the heat of summer or the cold of the winter she makes a mess of her...

    eBay and Craigslist will both have something to offer. I was in the Smith Worthington store last week and they are clearing out their paddock boots, which are reasonably priced at $29.95:...

    Does hilltopping mean foot followers or those who go on horse but don't jump?
    Hilltoppers are riders who follow the action more slowly and at a distance. It is often (but not always) riders who are...

    I used peat with a bit of shavings mixed in on two occasions when I had a horse on long term stall rest. It cut down significantly on the ammonia smell and was easy to pick. When my horse was...

    I agree with Huntin'Pony that you should have time to work on fitness before January. Call the organizers of the pace and find out how long the ride is and work on building up to that distance. The...

    I've always loved my Kerrits tights. They may not be show-worthy but they're darned comfy for everyday riding. Yoga pants work too.

    I'm jealous of your trails! There's very little that you can't practice on the trail as well as you can in the arena, and you can have more fun doing it. Vive la difference :)

    Hunter Paces were originally intended to be ridden at a hunting pace. However, many riders come out to enjoy a ride at a slower pace. While that might not track with the original intent, most hunts...

    I started out using 5"-6", like Goforagallop. Then my mare decided to become a piglet :) She has a stall with a runout, so she can go outdoors at any time. But she uses her stall as a toilet,...
