    Yeah, that's what I thought until I borrowed a pair from someone else. And then I was a convert. I don't know if it's the weight distribution, the shape, or something else, but they work 1,000,000...

    My gelding paws in the trailer when it's stopped. He came to me that way. I use the red pawing bracelets on him anytime he has to stand on a parked trailer for more than a few minutes - I have a...

    He's adorable and you're a very cute (and proportional) pair. And that face!

    Of course, I usually find these threads amusing as I am 5'6" and ride a QH that I like to pretend is 15h (really he's...

    I second the cookie advice. When I started doing that my mini mule went from arguing the point every morning to sticking her face right in.

    I'd also stay around the first few times in case he...

    You can also help yourself for looking for a more slightly built QH. Mine is one - he's double registered AQHA and APHA and has more of an appendix look than a QH look (but no TB for many...

    Slant. I haul just 1 horse 99% of the time. Horse rides better in the slant alone and it feels more stable than a straight with just 1 horse. My QH is only 15 hands but I used to have a 15.3 hand...

    I get it in pellet form at the feed store. Comes in 50# sacks. Brand seems to vary by region / store. And I've not noticed much difference between them. Just look for it to be stabilized and...

    I can't help on the cribber part, and I'm not an old lady, but...

    my trainer moved from a very quiet barn to a very busy one about a year ago. She trains reiners, we moved to a barn of mostly...

    I'd look at teeth. My Reiner was doing a lot of pushing his face up/nose out/throwing his head. Turned out the (fairly small) points on his molar were the culprit.

    I feed my hard keeper gelding a quart of rice bran and 3 oz of Cool Calories, in addition to TC Sr and alfalfa to keep the weight on. None of them seem to have made him any hotter, and they were...

    I love my Boulets with their leather soles, square toes, and roper heels. I've got two pairs. I won't ride in rubber soles, I don't like my feet that sticky. If I'm going to be standing all day (but...

    thanks! My farm sitter texted that to me when I was out of town last summer. He's actually quite fancy, so we call that his "inner Bubba look".

    I don't, but I did get an email from the County Conservation District today confirming that this is legit. They also shared other avenues for helping animals and the community - ill post in the...

    I've got a couple of Reinsman bits. The quality is reasonable for the price.

    No worries Calvincrowe - we're all a bit sensitive up here right now. And I agree - it's awful that people are already trying to profit from this tragedy.

    I don't have an opinion on why they're...

    Arlington Co-op (Cenex) is the feed store in town. This one is legit, a girl I know is assisting in feeding the horses. And the owner of the feed store is a stand up guy.

    The area where the slide...

    I've been reading along and not posting (apologies for that). So glad to hear that you've gotten some answers. Hopefully it is just an infection, and he'll get back to normal fairly quickly. And yes,...

    I ride reining. I follow the Western, Around the Farm, Horse Care, and Off Course forums regularly. I poke my head in to the rest for cross discipline learning and entertainment, but usually read...

    Is there somewhere nearby you can haul to for hacking and ring work? I keep mine at home and haul out to ride. Honestly, the 30 minutes it takes me to load and drive there is a better use of my time...

    Mini Donkey / Mule Keeping

    I know threads don't live very long around here, but it seems like we have a lot of mini donkeys out there. And I've got a mini molly mule. I thought we could share donkey keeping tips and answer...

    But you don't have to haul water, depending on the climate. I have a permanent hose running to each tank from my frost free. In about 30 seconds I can connect the hose and turn it on. And after 5...

    I currently keep a QH gelding and a mini-mule, in the past I've had as many as 3 QH geldings here.

    I know several deaf reining horses, most of them have active ears but they use them much differently than a hearing horse. Mostly they move back and forth a lot, and then get kind of splayed out to...
