    I wouldn't assume the reviewer isn't psycho.
    A phrase of just "she's psycho" means nothing to me. I always ask for "she's psycho because…". If they provide specific examples, then I can always judge...

    Thank you all for validating my concerns.


    Amen to this. This horse has already had a couple years off due to various injuries. Of my 3, he would be the one who would kill himself in a poor...

    I think you guys are missing the point. He is not charging me. He never pins his ears, and the only "aggression" towards me is random kicks if I go near him, including outside his stall. These...

    aggression over grain; let it be?

    My youngest (7 year old TB) has always been "protective" of his feed, likely because in his formative years he lived in a pasture with about 20 other geldings, was lowest on the totem pole, and had...

    If I had a boarding barn that I loved and my horses got great care, I definitely would not board at home. The only reasons I bought a place with land was because I moved to an area with a very very...

    They get used to them. It took a few times for both dogs to get used to walking in them. Every single time we put them on our BC/GermShep cross he acted like his legs couldn't function. The second we...

    Muttluks are the only way to go. DH is a vet and all of our vet friends in arctic climates don't use anything else. We used the original boots for our border collie mixes the entire time we lived in...

    My oldest is a nightmare when it comes to being herd-bound. I eventually just gave up. Thankfully, at home, he was generally ok, but I couldn't take him to a show (or anywhere else) and then separate...

    With my horses at home, unless there is a known issue I don't do full "quarantine" simply because it isn't practical. The benefit of having just 3 horses at home in a private setting is that they get...

    The last few months I've had random holes appearing in my pasture. The are small in diameter (~6-12") and can be extremely deep (one was ~24"). It looks like they're caused by my horses' hooves. Most...
