    You know, we're told from a young age that we can do anything, if we work hard enough.

    That statement makes me shudder. It's not true. It makes us beat ourselves up when we fail, thinking we...

    Mine are not on grass yet and I have noticed a small but definitely noticable decline in hay consumption this past week.

    ^ Ditto this. I know it's hard not to be constantly "doing something" when you're waiting for a horse to gain. I picked up an old gelding last April that had a BCS of 2. But you're doing well, and...

    This doesn't have to be an either/or. I think you're dealing with both pain AND behavioral issues.

    The "puffing up, getting more excited, then exploding" from an OTTB who is in the barn WAY TOO...

    These hay threads perplex me - does NO ONE but us here in the PNW pay for hay by the ton instead of by the bale???? Paying by the bale is so weird to me. You'd pay the same amount even if the...

    I think we paid about $8/post about three years ago. Totally worth it.

    I think it's crossing the line. Asking is one thing, but giving an opinion on the price is another.

    I had a pre-purchase vet who asked me to ride the horse to demonstrate it's temperament under...

    I, personally, would go for the covered. I can't stand riding in 4 walls day after day! There are so many options for seasonal side coverings that still let in great light and allow for airflow.

    I currently own a mare that does not prefer trails, nor to go out alone. I mentioned some things earlier in the thread about how I've handled her. If she got tense and jiggy on the way home, I'd...

    Stick to your guns about this. I see too many threads on COTH about people who bought the wrong horse. Don't let someone tell you that something that is very important to you isn't important at all...

    Notify the seller that you must be allowed to take the horse on the trail alone (whether on their property or having them trailer out) and that it is mandatory that you see horse caught. I've sold...

    I'll stand with you!! I have a pony with loose poop when on a non-grass diet so baling string is an invaluable tail strap - merely tie on, allow a few weeks for proper soiling, remove and throw away!

    I think it's very possible that you're on to something - he's feeling better and now onery. Unlike many on COTH, I do think you can set financial limits on each horse and not sell every last...

    OP, this totally sounds fixable. Several have mentioned good ideas.

    Have places on the trail to move out. Preferably, a long stretch to trot right out. Also, keep some contact. Both great...

    Not very many people know this, as I'm sure the story is not romantic enough for those now associated with Thee Asil, but I found himin a pasture when his breeder asked me to come look at some colts....

    I think I love you. I've been shopping pads for a very old, low-backed gelding and am so afraid of shelling out $$$ without trying it on him first. Buying this right away!!

    They did Freestyle Reining (amateur) in the Equidome to start - I missed it. If you go to the event info tab, there are schedules for all the arenas.

    I have a few. Some are Big D and some are Schneiders. They can be a bit of a pain to get the saddles into but will definitely keep them clean!
