    Two other boarders in my barn have had the tabs taken out. BUT, they went to a professional. I think it cost $10, and you cannot tell there were ever sewn-in tabs there. The sheets look great and are...

    Well, not yet, but likely next year I plan to build exactly what you describe: a 24x12 run-in. It will be wood, built by my wonderful SO, because he built my barn and this shed will match the barn. ...

    I prefer shorter cotton leads, always with a chain. Being around warmbloods all the time, you never know when a chain will come in handy, so I always put it on them. If I don't need it, great! If I...

    I'm interested in ideas for remembering the...

    Having seen that go very wrong (try fitting a 17.2 Hanoverian and a person through that tiny door at the same time...), please be very careful! At least backing off, you can let them go when they...

    It's barely April! I'm not sure where you are, but I'm in CT and many of ours are only just starting to shed. Yes, they started losing some hair in January, but they certainly still have full winter...

    I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in high school, I believe I was 14 (I'm now 24). I was miserable prior to my diagnosis. There would be points that I couldn't even walk class-to-class (say, 200...

    This is probably your best bet! That way you can have something you know is ok for you, and you get to pick what you have for dinner! Then if they also make something else that works for you, you're...

    Being a full-time student and a barn rat, I feel your pain. Even if I happen to be home for a meal, I'm usually too tired to cook anything!

    I definitely recommend cooking things ahead of time. For...

    I use security questions as a second password. Your response wouldn't actually be the answer to the question, but instead another password.

    Depends on the colic. Always banamine, check to see what's been eaten/drank, take all food away, possibly take temp.

    A REALLY uncomfortable horse who wants to keep rolling (or the last one I had...

    Horses' immune systems aren't as efficient as ours.

    The shots you need depend on your area. Best to ask your vet!

    I agree with the other posters. If you can swing it financially, I'd do some further diagnostics, including an MRI of his feet (one or both, depending on where his issues are - it costs somewhat less...

    It really depends on what you want to do. If you just have to make phone calls, it really doesn't matter. If you want to browse the web, watch videos, send/receive photos... you need good service....

    I'm a more recent convert, after trying them about 10 years ago and having issues. I started about 5 years ago full-time and haven't looked back. I do keep eye drops handy, but more because I have...

    I'm going to go a bit against the grain here because in my eyes, this guy isn't totally horrible. Should he have told you about the drinks? Yes. But he's barely paid any attention to this girl, her...

    Definitely read the other threads, as Laurierace mentions, but I'm another one joining the "Love BoT" party!

    I have the mesh sheet, fleece quartersheet, and far too many saddle pads to count. My...

    This. Your goals and ability (as well as your horse's) determine to some extent how far you can go and what sort of trainer you are looking for. But a good trainer can increase that range of ability....

    How does he feel otherwise?

    My gut reaction would view it as a positive sign, especially if you say the old saddle was fitted a year ago and he's gotten fitter since, so his shape as likely...

    My switch was a bit of an accident.

    I started in hunter/jumper land, taking lessons, 1/2 leasing horses, doing little schooling shows here and there, etc. When I bought my first horse at 14, I was...

    Glad to know I'm not the only one disturbed by this. The rider had a crop and was persistently smacking the poor black (?) horse, and then when they tried teaching him to jump, the other guy was...

    If he's getting into that much trouble, it's a matter of time before he hurts himself. So you're right, your situation doesn't work for him.

    But what else can you do? You've been searching and...

    I like them high, but not too high, so that I can just reach to fix them if the twine breaks, comes undone, etc. And they shouldn't drag on the ground. As long as you don't have an uber wide aisle...

    I'm very tempted to try this stuff... but haven't had to do a full course so the big tube seems silly to buy. I use 1/2 doses of GG/UG any time I give NSAIDs, but that's usually once or twice a...

    I only have experience with one horse to go on, so take this with a grain of salt. But he foundered on the Purina Senior. He does best on a no-grain diet.

    Honestly, I'd look for something outside...
