    I can afford DNA testing--but I am under the impression that it doesn't really work. I'm not a scientist, but as i understand it, most horse...

    And the water-hate! I've never met an Arab that liked water.

    Probably wouldn't hurt to have a vet check just to establish baselines and make sure there aren't any lurking issues, mild arthritis, etc., but I would say that short walks are best to start out,...

    Thanks, everyone! She is fabulous and I love her so bad.

    Oh, and a sub-question:

    Would i get laughed off the premises if i took her to an inspection this year? We have RPSI locally, and maybe some AWS/AWR stuff abt 5 hours away.

    I agree 100 percent with kasjordan. Figure out if there is pain, and treat accordingly.

    I have a toothless 22 year old TB who looks the best she has ever looked this winter, but it takes...

    My 2 cents (and that is about all it is really worth!) but i see some potential here too. No, he's not a 10. But he is better than a 6 mover and would only get better with consistent correct...

    Long shot, but--i have an old Big Horn half-leather, half-synthetic cutting horse saddle that is a PERFECT fit for TB backs. It works with the dip and still clears the shark fin. It is worth whatever...

    I just bought a Big D Magnum turnout sheet for my slight TB mare who normally wears an 80. The 80 is a little big--i probably could have gotten away with a 78. That's all i know!

    You didn't say what age your ponies are, but I can tell you it has never worked out (for me, anyway) to have a middle-age/mature gelding in with a very young (weanling to 4ish) mare. My geldings have...

    I totally agree with this. I had a 17.1 hand TB who jumped for DECADES who, even in old age and stiffness, never had a problem getting up and down. Makes you wonder what else is and has been going on...

  22. Update

    If I can figure out how to tag threads, I’ll tag this one with “spider bite” and “free horses aren’t free.”

    I have no idea where my yearling will finish for either length or height but it might be fun to guess!

    Thanks, alto! I love it here. :)

    His manners *are* coming around a little bit. I think he has figured out that i mean business!
