    My new horse is a lower lip flapper ... never occurred to me it might be ulcers, though. He only does it in work. Eek.

    Sad when the cowhorse division winners really are cowhorses ... so ironic. I am a great fan of Arabs and have a half Arab/WB myself, so it's a poke when my breed is beaten at their own show by...

    I would keep the older horse. One, you sell him on, his issues reoccur, you don't know what his fate will be. First refusals and all that don't hold up. Your finances hopefully won't stay what...

    Back to what makes a "rescue". There are some places that are just glorified horse dealers. Which is fine, but the horses haven't been rescued from some dire situation.

    I just had a tack garage sale with a friend. I think with more advertising we would have done better (I only did Craigslist, could have put fliers), but we still got rid of a lot of stuff and made...

    On an internet BB, too much chance of cyberbullying and a pile on of mean spiritedness ... so the prudent thing was to take it down. Of course, I wish I had seen it now (being honest!), simply...

    Haha, horses chewing gum! I think the "housewives from Atlanta" who came up with this should go back to taking some lessons so their horses don't grind their teeth! Good grief.

    OP, only you can tell us if the buyout amount is fixed in your contract with the trainer's mother. If it's not, well ... the horse is increasing in value, as so many have pointed out.

    Don't...

    I would have lots of large pastures (the whole place needs to be at least 20 acres), a 10 stall airy barn with individual run outs (and 12x12 stalls with mats, auto waterers, dutch doors in the...

    Sounds like once the OP found she had the option to move, maybe moving isn't on the top of her list -- thus the shopping and the waiting to pay off the part of the horse she doesn't own.

    It occurs to me that common sense would tell you that a horse throwing his head up while backing, every time, would not be a good idea. "that looks terrible, but the clinician told me to do it..." ...

    I don't think you are wrong for asking for basic stable safety ... BM needs to enforce some rules. I am sure, though, it will cause some drama before you are done.

    I sympathize.

    I am not listening to this conversation, because that means we will need blankets, which means it's going to be very, very cold soon.

    noooo! Florida people I am sure are laughing right now.
