    Well, even well run farms with ideal care end up with critically ill foals. Foals can be very fragile. Also, there are many "regular" horse people that don't spend thousands of dollars on vet bills...

    Thanks for the link, Lynnwood. Yes, that is a huge piece of misinformation that the nurse mares are used so that mares can be re-bred! I've simply never heard of that happening. First of all,...

    Where does Last Chance Corral insinuate anything negative about the nurse mare farms? I didn't see anything negative about the farms on their website, and I haven't seen anything like that posted on...

    Actually, Lynnwood, if Last Chance Corral were to expose the farms that give them the foals, I think that what would happen is those farms would stop sending foals to LCC--or to any other suitable...

    It actually can be difficult to get a nurse mare. They often are shipped in from far away (unless you live in KY). And they aren't cheap. Nurse mares are not just used for cases where the mare died....

    If you read the comments on their Facebook page, it's obvious that most people are very ignorant about what nurse mare foals are and where they come from. Many people wrongly assume the foals are...

    I for one thought it was a pretty reasonable article. Yes, it was written for non-horse people by a non horse person.

    But, I think it did inadvertently highlight an issue within our sport. I...

    Cut the tail. If you want your horse to have a gorgeous tail, do not let it get so long that he can step on it and rip chunks of it out. Also, overlong tails (and manes) IMO look unkempt and...

    At this point, I don't know what more there is to say. The new person behaved a bit boldly in approaching the friend/owner of the horse you ride and that person communicated that they weren't...

    I think it is appropriate to start all young horses in a very mild bit, some type of mild snaffle. Then, as they progress, if something else is needed you can make a change. There is no "recipe" for...

    Finish the stall and use construction so that your horse cannot jump out. Then lock him in there with his food and ignore him until he settles. Wash, rinse, repeat. I can tell you that having a...

    From a financial standpoint, SMF is right on, it's a terrible idea. Your husband's initial calculator-in-hand thought is a VERY common one, so don't feel badly. It's easy peasy to add up boarding...

    Love minis. Behavior wise they are smart and sweet (in general), although I've known quite a few that are hard to catch, especially if they are out in a field with grass that they don't want to...

    Oh, sorry, was writing my post at the same time. Emipou, it sounds to me like you are being caught up in an issue that doesn't really involve you. For all you know, another person leasing a horse has...

    NoSuchPerson, boarding contracts (at least mine) are not transferable. I.e, someone can't sign a boarding contract with me, and then lease out the horse to someone else and transfer the obligations...

    As a courtesy, I extend use of the facilities to people leasing and part leasing horses that are not the owner--or the person signing the boarding contract--of the horse that is boarded with me.

    It's way more than you might guess. To do a simple, small arena with a respectable base and simple footing--I'd say 30K as a ballpark for the total project. Unfortunately, skimping is not generally a...

    Yes, I totally agree. It is typically very easy to inspect tack for damage. Anyone with functioning eyeballs can check for cracked leather/billets, etc. and it's easy to take a saddle to a shop and...

    I would have been annoyed, too. But, at local level schooling shows in the jumpers many horses are a little bit shaggy and not perfectly bathed.

    Here's what I would do. Just tell the girls...

    This behavior is well within the range of what I would expect for a 3 yo colt off the track. It may not be a question of him "settling in." I can't say why he seemed so quiet when the owner went to...

    I have to agree with others. It just isn't a good idea to sell a used helmet.

    I do agree that the degradation of helmet materials isn't something perfectly predictable--it isn't like the...

    Without being back in work proving that the NQR situation has resolved, the horse has very little potential to be sold at all. If you tried to sell him on the spot (within a month) with honest...
