    I've had mini donks as pets and companions for over 40 years. #1 They are the absolutely MOST horney beast on the planet as Jack's. #2 They REALLY need to be handled from birth and taught manners...

    I'd try to find a more "horse friendly" home, myself. Those program horses work their butts off and "many and all drugs" are used to make them able to keep working. We hosted the ANRC championships...

    THIS!! I have no problem with horses being killed/slaughtered/eaten....it is how the process is done...and Mexican slaughter is nothing to be wished for!!

    A bullet is quicker and kinder that going through a slaughter house. Let the vultures eat the body if you must, but the horrors of Mexican slaughter are indescribable.

    TB's are not "Entry Level" first time horses. This sounds like an accident waiting to happen. Especially when breeding for a race horse is part of the plan. Learn, learn, learn...on "Good Old Boy"...

    Putting hay/straw under the blanket was the "old standby" remedy for a wet horse before the invention of "breathable" blankets!! Either way he will dry himself out.

    Wheelbarrow handles are made of "hardened wood". OP will be too old to care by the time she "rasps" the handles down to size!!! Electric grinder will be much faster!!
