    Equine Exchange in Pottstown would probably consign them for you. Maybe call and speak to Michelle (the owner), and send some pics?

    I love my 100 gram turnouts. They're so handy for transitional weather, and for layering when it's colder. Horsewear makes an Amigo version, and Schneiders does a similar product called...

    I'd think the cleanest and easiest method would be to purchase the horse. Offer a nominal but reasonable amount given the horse and situation ($500? $800? something like that) and perhaps the owner...

    I was also going to guess that it was the Cashel western pad. They were popular for schooling at one time. http://https://www.smartpakequine.com/cashel-western-cushion-3668p

    Ask an inflammatory question, get an inflammatory answer. I am neither a politician nor an insurance expert, sorry.



    I do sympathize with learning such lessons the hard way. I'm sure most of...

    Seriously? You understand that a complaint contains allegations, correct? That there are usually three sides to a dispute: the plaintiff's, the defendant's and the truth?

    I am the first to say...

    Reading MC's complaint against the vet and trainer, I don't see how she would prevail against the vet. The complaint states that KS was aware of the prepurchase findings: if HB conveyed those...

    I use a Donjoy when my horses need icing. I already had the unit from my own surgery, and purchased one of the all-purpose pads to use on the horses' legs. I wrapped it on with a Saratoga bandage, no...

    Yes, my horse's other levels were negative. We were trying to determine why he was neurologic, so he was diagnosed via spinal tap. Subsequent tests were one blood, one spinal tap (he's still...

    My horse's OspF value was somewhere around 7,000. We did 10 days of IV Oxytet (fortunately, my vet is nearby; while I am also capable with IV shots, I would never attempt Oxytet myself), followed by...

    I found my conveyor belts (which I used for my stalls and aisle) through word of mouth. They are from a company that mainly supplies matting to the dairy industry. The belts are surprisingly soft...

    I have a few. I do think it's easier for the horses to get to all their food, but I haven't found them very durable. One cracked, a second one somehow has a mangled handle, and the rubber caps on the...

    I have a horse with heaves who no longer gets hay. I feed him a mix of TC Safe Starch and TC Grass forages ($23/bag here). I supplement that with a few pounds of soaked hay pellets and hay stretcher...

    I had an aged pony like this. My vet thought he probably had cancer. I gave him a really nice summer, and his last few days even removed his muzzle. Then I let him go before cold weather set in. It...

    Don't freak out yet. As others have said, it will take more than a month or see your grass come up. It's also a bit late to plant grass seed: most likely, you will need to do some serious seeding...

    I have two large rolls of recycled industrial conveyor belt covering the length of my aisle (I used the same material for my stall mats as well). They are quite thick and comfortable and so easy to...

    We have a 4x4 Polaris Ranger. It has a hydraulic dump bed and we added a plow for moving snow and manure. We also use the plow for clearing brush and saplings from our trails. As the salesman told...

    I've heard of this being used by prominent hunter professionals, to manufacture a cresty neck. As I understand it, the Ralgro is implanted into the neck. It's not something I would do, but I can't...

    I have a 15-acre farm, about 6ish of which are used for turnout. I try to always have four horses on the property. Three tends to be a problem if you want to ride more than one at any given time....

    I also feel that horses are always happiest with a friend. Personally, I derive a lot of satisfaction from taking in oldsters, either as boarders or when a friend's horse needs a soft place to land....

    I use either a Thinline or Ultra Thinline contour pad, depending on saddle fit. However, my back problems are severe enough that a saddle pad alone is not enough. I have found the most relief by...

    It's been several years since I've shown at WEF, but it is a lot of fun and a terrific experience. I took a hunter and a jumper down for a month. I think I spent approximately $12k to $14k, stabling...

    My point really was to forget about using what you have in the garage, and build what will be most useful/convenient. Put in your dutch doors, as you will be kicking yourself and wishing you had them...

    You can have a window and a Dutch door in the back of every stall if you build the windows into the Dutch doors. This is what I did and I love it. I still have light when the top doors are closed:...
