    We would GLADLY pay for it by the ton if anyone would SELL it by the ton. No one does. The hay market here is completely corrupt.
  2. Quality hay that does not cost a fortune does NOT...

    Quality hay that does not cost a fortune does NOT exist in Colorado, so you can cross that one off your list.

    Some years, depending on weather, there is a lot of mountain hay produced but it is...

    Shoeing rules?

    What are you going to do, set a limit on the total weight of the shoeing package? How would you do that? What would a fair limit be? Wouldn't you have to set the limit...

    I never thought of Charlotte as bigger at 5'7" and 134 pounds, slightly taller than average with not very long limbs. How tall is Kathleen Raine? She looks quite a bit larger and longer-limbed than...

    I use Fig Newtons or for the one who hates those cookies I just cut a deep slit in a piece of carrot and stuff the 1/4 tablet in there. He also will eat them out of his grain but I prefer to put them...

    She found the seat that works for her body and her horse, so what's the difference whether she looks "plugged in" or "hovering"? Watch how the horse is going. That's the real story. It's not right or...

    I have not found the pour-in pads to be any more slippery than the shoes themselves, or shoes with other kinds of pads.

    Adorable!

    Right - the least expensive supplement on this program runs $533/year. And it only covers colic surgery, nothing else. What if your horse is hospitalized for colic for several days and recovers?...

    I have had the most success preventing snow-balls with pour-in pads. The only drawback is the expense.

    I didn't know you retired -- congratulations!

    Could be the same person. I wouldn't be surprised at all. But I don't want to name names. It wouldn't be fair since I did not hear any of this in...

    Riding crookedly and incorrectly falls under the category of "poor management and training practices" that I mentioned in my first post.

    Well, Grouchypants, for those of us who DO ask a lot of our horses and HAVE ridden beyond 2nd level, is it okay if we treat our horses as top-notch athletes? Jeez...

    It may not be a popular opinion because it fails to account for the fact that dressage horses are not machines, they are athletes and body-builders and are prone to injury and overuse just as human...

    I didn't think you were rude at all.

    But why aren't you curious ABOUT this? What really offends me is when people use the word AROUND when they mean ABOUT.

    If you are curious AROUND something...

    For chronic issues, yes.

    I am curious to know what "pre-arthritic" means. Aren't all horses (and people) that do not already have arthritis pre-arthritic?

    Tee-hee. No, I have a very sensible equine dentist who also is a veterinarian. She brings portable stocks and plenty of drugs (but not too much drugs).

    I also have two metabolic/laminitic mares...
  18. I forgot about the other part of the story, that...

    I forgot about the other part of the story, that the metabolic horses are actually starving because their teeth are in such poor condition. It is the starvation that is causing the weight gain. I'm...
  19. Floating teeth to correct insulin resistance?

    A friend of mine's horse dentist told her his floating technique would fix her obese horse. He said something about how masticating incorrectly turns the hay into starch and then fat and then makes...

    Coming back from my injuries I am realizing just how much condition my horse and I both lost. My horse (aka "His Majesty") is also going through the dreaded bratty stage that I keep hearing others...

    Congratulations -- she looks like a blast to ride. I burst out laughing at the whispering commentary to "stop looking at your feet."

    Are you seriously worried? What resistance are you referring to? You received a stream of honest responses offering numerous logical explanations for not including levade in the GP test. Then when...
