    The International Hunter Futurity will no longer be having a finals in KY. Poor attendance the last couple of years forced them to abandon it. For now anyway.

    And as far as treats, a competent trainer using them appropriately in a training situation, is a far cry from the massive over-treating that consumes this country as a whole. The average horse owner...

    They must "love" me because I treat them kindly and fairly. Not because I am a human Pez dispenser.

    I completely disagree with secretariat. As the recipient of many either feral or spoiled yearlings/two year olds each year, I can assure you that either extreme makes my life VERY difficult.

    Poling with a wrapped bamboo, either manually or as an off set, is probably one of the most innocuous things you can do to a horse to remind him to do his job. Bamboo is very light, and the effect...

    Have you tried the smaller clippers for her body? The Andis 2 Speed or Oster A5 with T-84 or 10 blades. I have had many that hate the big clippers be perfectly fine with the smaller ones. Start on...

    The reason I was always given was getting the catalog to print. But perhaps they could do the breeding as an insert. Two of our possibles aren't even arriving til after April 1. Hard to enter...

    Where do I start? You are wrong on several points. First, we aren't upset about losing our day because it happens to fall on GP day! Where did you get that idea? It is nice to have the option to...

    No, it isn't, vfx111. We have done pony breeding for years. Booths are fully stocked, happy to see you and open for business. Even on the Thursday of HB, the Devon booth is out of many items. ...

    It should also be noted that if the judges loved your horse over fences, they will be inclined to be lenient under saddle. Not wrong, just human nature. Along those lines, however, I am glad that...

    Sue, it was the fence. I have had the same thing happen with otherwise waterproof blankets. The moisture in the air creates condensation under the blanket. On a horse, it will be fine.

    Why ever would you not have ID with you for a horse showing at a horse show, one that you hoped to record at that show. That isn't a very good reason to leave the breeding blank! No wonder this...
