    Honestly, I would have loved to know in advance when a schoolie was going to be put down. Even as a young child, I was upset to arrive at the barn and hear that a favorite lesson horse had "retired...

    As the others have said, you're good. I ordered from them a couple months ago (for the first time) and was very concerned because I was moving and so I was very worried that I wouldn't get it before...

    Another vote for Happenstance Farm. Vanessa is great, the turnout there is unbeatable, and it's not ridiculously expensive (compared to other places).
