    I really love the Micklem, but I am not sure the Micklem is legal for hunter/jumper. Check the rulebook..crescent noseband.

    But that aside, given the clinician's preferences, I am not sure a...

    Alsike clover and photo sensitivity go hand in glove. Check your pasture. Alsike clover is life threatening to horses. Symptoms of poisoning tend to vary, and appear to include the leg issues you...

    Jay bird...the chiro came out yesterday and we assessed the saddle. You are 100% on the mark. All of that coupled with the saddle being a little too long for her. Definitely the wrong saddle for...

    I am more curious about why he asked the question and why he became "alarmed" at the answer. It you don't know where the concern is coming from, then you cannot answer the question in a meaningfully...

    Lil Nibs, I think you have wonderful intentions, and would recommend that should you choose to act on them, work on your own or with a small group of like-minded people. Rescue where you can and...

    Thank you alto.

    It seems the saddle goes off in about a year...which is different from my former horse that also used the saddle.

    I am asking out of curiosity. Why would you cross a Friesian with a QH? What characteristics are you breeding for??

    With full due respect for both breeds, they seem to be at opposite ends of the...
