    My daughter has a Flip and I can't imagine it having that great of quality for YouTube. The zoom isn't that great. She uses it mostly during schooling and lessons. I wouldn't take it to a show.

    Yes, I've never seen any indication that they blow around, but we only have the side windows open, not the back top doors. The ones we use are the guardian mini flakes and they contain very little...

    Okay - here goes. We have a pony that has a very similar attitude. She's okay as long as she feels like you aren't telling her what to do, but the second you interfere she grabs the bits and pulls....

    I have to agree that a horse that's untrained and not even 6 isn't a big deal. You haven't mentioned any temperment issues. I suspect that someone is out there that will be interested. I'm not...

    First, I'm glad to hear that you got the pony sold. It's been for sale for awhile!

    We really ought to spend some time together - I swear we're always in the same shoes at the same time.

    I'm glad you've had the discussion...but when is the pony going? Soon I hope!

    The only thing I would have perhaps done differently is to leave mention of the dad completely out of the...

    I apologize because I only glanced briefly at a few responses.

    To the OP, you think you are only making $50 on average per boarder? I would be willing to bet that you are more likely losing $50...

    Guess what? I just gave my neighbor notice that her kid's horse has to GO!! It feels wonderful! Mind you, I feel terrible for the kid, but I am so relieved.

    I didn't read the fleece post, but we prevent rubs by getting creative with scissors and fake sheepskin halter wraps.

    I have two horses that hide their heads in the corner of the stall when I...

    You've been doing all the right things up until now. She hasn't had problems before has she? She may have decided that her belly is a little more sensitive to the sudden lushiness of the grass. ...

    First I have to ask. Are you nuts?? :D Expect that it will cost you more than it would if you just bought a turnkey farm. And don't automatically assume you will save money by doing some work...

    Skip him. He doesn't sound to me like he's worth "free" - not to you anyway. You want something to piddle with but this sounds more like a rescue case.

    Sorry, I know you're looking for...

    Great news! I can't wait to hear how Blush progresses.

    I've been reading with interest because our boarder's horse has "hind end weirdness". All of us layfolks thought it looked stifle-ish or...

    I didn't see this original post, but it sounds to me like riding in the ring is just a less pleasant experience than on the trail or in from the pasture. Is that the only place he works?

    Called for an update at 10:50am and was told it's beautiful and couldn't be better. I'll take that with a rather large grain of salt but it sounds worth a 45 minute drive to see! :)
