    I had my horse's hocks injected and it lasted all of a month before he was back to pre-injection status. Got the vet back out and decided to try the SI the second time around (flexed off on the hocks...

    Question for those of you with the dog puzzles... Do they seem like a cat would be able to operate them?

    One of my cats is an expert at stealing food out of his automatic feeder, which involves...

    I use a body worker who's taking her final course/test/whatever to be fully Masterson certified later this month. She's helped a lot with getting my sore horse less sore. He certainly seems to think...

    Fiddle,

    There are dutch doors on both the front/back. So maybe if you put solid doors up in addition to the grates or have the doors set aside to put up on the hinges if a storm comes through it'd...

    Hopefully this works. The photos weren't taken to show off the barn, but I think that's all I have on my computer. My parents don't have horses right now, but I'm sure my dad would take more pics or...

    My parents have something similar to what it sounds like you want (Lexington, SC area). I think it is pretty much optimal for 2-3 horses that all go out together in the same pasture.

    The barn is...

    My parents' place was an old Christmas tree farm (pines). A small portion (1/4 -1/2 acre) of the pasture includes the fringes of the trees. The horses never seemed to have any issues other than...

    I rode a mare with what sounds like similar behavior. She wasn't "lame", but when I'd pick her LH, she'd get it "stuck" in the picking position. She never seemed upset, but I was always worried she'd...

    My guy has had a slightly more compressed list of symptoms, but I'll tell you what I ended up doing for it. I was also thinking possible PSSM, but in our case I think it was a Se deficiency. The...

    I've had my guy since he was 6 months and I couldn't point to a single incident in which he might've screwed up his pelvis/SI. The options are he could've wiped out trying to run through the trees or...

    I've been bringing a 17yo Arab back into work after 10 years of life as a pasture puff. He's got similar "not quite right"ness with his back end. He's always been a toe-dragger, especially when...

    OMG, where? I can never find fun dressage saddle pads. I got so tired of black or white that I tried making my own. It's not too bad, but I need to find thicker padding...

    My impression of Memphis is that it was mostly saddleseat-type stuff (TWH, Standardbreds) based on talking with a girl who grew up there. I briefly considering moving there, but I stayed in the...

    I had my gelding's done right around Christmas. We were working on turning him into a dressage pony after a multi-year stint as a pasture ornament. With him, we could see immediately that he didn't...

    I had a Waquoit filly/mare who I retrained off the steeplechase track (Sulky Squaw out of Sultress). She made a nice hunter despite my amateur retraining abilities. She had a super cute, dished head...

    Laurie - on your adoption horse, what was the timeline for the foot fixing/soreness ending?

    I've got a middle-aged pasture-puff gelding that had a disaster of a RF that I've been trying to bring...

    Years ago we took our 4yo to a fun-day type show as his first show. I was riding him and we were just sort of doing some of whatever, not really worried about anything beyond him having fun. We...

    Lovely video and this makes me appreciate it all the more! I've got a horse with a similar background, but 16, who I'm trying to turn into a dressage pony after being a pasture puff for 10 years. If...

    The Thorowgood broadback worked for my 16 yo Arab as we brought him back into work after essentially a 10 year vacation of being a pasture puff. He definitely had some swayback going on, but when he...

    I'm 5'2" and don't have any problems with the flap length in my 17.5". I'd agree the seats probably run a bit small because it fits me great at 125 lbs. My trainer seems to fit in it ok and she's...

    I did something similar, but just put two stripes of lab tape (what I had on hand and not as shiny as electrical tape) up near the top. When that failed to discourage "borrowing" I also wrote my last...

    My horse is a hand me down from my mom. When she bought him, she wanted a 6-10 yo quiet horse to do some pleasure riding on (mostly W/T). She bought a 6 mo Arabian stud colt. :lol: 16 years later she...

    Thanks guys! This is my "project" horse, so he's had a lot of changes in the last couple months. It very well could be a temper tantrum of epic proportions.

    He got his teeth cleared by the vet via...

    Recovery from PowerPacking - how long?

    I'm hoping some people with experience worming high worm-load horses can weigh in and help me interpret my horse's behavior over the last two weeks.
