    24YO Andalusian gelding in Texas

    Gosh, yes, you are NOT alone. My horse is the very same way!

    A couple of years ago, I made arrangements to haul him to a nearby indoor arena. My goal was simply to work out his willies about new...

    Not necessarily at all. I'm still weighing my options.



    Yes. All that is still in progress.

    The answer to all three questions is I don't want him going downhill home after home, to worse circumstances. I don't want him on a canner's truck. And I don't want him to be a charro horse in...

    It is the same horse. He is old. He is not out of shape. He is very nice to handle and ride. He's just spooky.



    I'm still weighing my options.

    He's a big horse, and I don't want him sold...

  7. How can you prevent a horse from being sold?

    If I give a horse away, is there anything I can do to prevent the next owner from selling him? I would not object to the next owner giving him away, free leasing him, or putting him down, should the...

    What do you think of it for a riding horse? How much/what kind of change can I expect? And how soon? Right away? (He won't get the first shot until next Thursday, which will be his 18th day on...

    I have an update of sorts.

    I talked to my vet today. He recommended an injectable drug called Fluphenazine. This drug lasts 30 days, so we're talking about 12 shots a year, which seems quite...

    I am not mad at my horse, and I don't blame him. Had he been a wild horse, he would have been a survivor. I admire that in him.

    My emotion is much more like the grandma who realizes that her...

    OK, I just looked at it. Lots of good reviews.

    But here's the thing: It's $8 a dose. I would be using it every time I ride. That's $8 a day or $8 a ride. That's $240 a month just to keep...

    The vet is coming out next week, and I will discuss it with him. Wouldn't it be nice (miraculous) if something that simple could be fixed?

    My horse and I aren't unhappy together. He grazes...

    I don't take offense at anything anyone has said. I wanted to discuss this with equestrians.

    This is an excellent point, and I so appreciate you bringing it up. I spend $50 a month on his hooves alone, and if he were retired that would be the exact same cost. He's barefoot, and that's how...
