    Bad, bad influence. Good thing that my extra stall is full of hay. Will have to play with my 22 year old OTTB for another year until I have some pennies saved.

    Not saying that these horses are not worth the money. I paid $3000 for my OTTB in 2000 because the market was different. My comment related to these prices as opposed to those that I have seen over...

    I have noticed that even the older (8,9,10 year olds) and cribbers are over $2000, which is unusual for the last few years. Glad the market is picking up for the horse's sake, but not for mine :cry:.

    If it not a good match, and you want to event, sell him. If you can foxhunt in your area, I would try that. It will give you both lots of confidence, and you will have fun.

    Like the other eventers here, I tie to the trailer. If I leave, I usually load him. I used to use baling twine, now I use this handy gadget: https://www.smartpakequine.com/blocker-tie-ring-6004p

    Go to the Smartpak Basement (which is ironically on the second floor). It is hit or miss, but I have made some major scores there. The last few years, I have not had any luck at EA for good deals.

    Shelter logic for hay storage

    My daughter's horse has moved home, and he has taken up my extra hay storage stall. In addition, my hay supplier warned me that this was a lousy year for second cut, so I probably need to buy hay...
