    I think it is perfectly reasonable to be concerned about what's in your horse's feed, and you are well within your rights to ask the feed company how they prevent contamination. If you didn't...

    I would be kind of leery about using a horse that rears and flips over as a broodmare, too ... I remember a study that was done a few years ago on racehorses that found that babies from mares that...

    It means making a "figure 8" with the throat latch and looping the reins through. It's just a way of keeping the bridle neat when it's hung up. And yes, I did learn it in pony club, but it's...
  4. If I'm not mistaken, jumping anything that isn't...

    If I'm not mistaken, jumping anything that isn't flagged (from either direction) is grounds for elimination at the discretion of the GJ at a USEA event too, so it's not just a Pony Club thing.

    This. Just because a Pony Club instructor, DC, parent, or other person has certain policies doesn't mean they are actual Pony Club rules ... Just ask anyone who survived Pony Club past the C2 level...

    Hindsight is 20/20. Laminitis is far from the only reason for a horse to act up during shoeing, and from the sound of things, the regular vet didn't suspect laminitis either until the horse became...

    OP, remember posting this?



    Sounds like you seemed to feel that your horses were just fine and not lame or sore ... So now why are you trying to insist that you kept telling the farrier you...

    Thanks for clearing that up! I guess I just assumed that both teams used the same ball, so if it was deflated or inflated more than usual it would affect them both, but that's obviously not the case.

    This is probably a very stupid question, but how would using deflated balls actually have benefited the Patriots? I mean, they have to handle the balls too, so wouldn't any difficulties with...

    Toughen up, Cupcake.

    I agree. I've read the statement on their web site and it seems that their attitude toward the situation is, "they haven't proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the feed was the immediate cause of...

    I'm planning on attending a Nutrena seminar next week, so hopefully they will be able to give me more information about the quality control process and how they keep horse feed safe.

    That was totally worth the 11 pages of inane banter.

    I feed Nutrena SafeChoicd ... I emailed them yesterday asking about this situation and how I could be sure my horse's feed was safe. This is the reply I got this morning:



    So it sounds like...

    Law enforcement isn't the only career path that is off limits to felons. Nurses, doctors, and other professionals can get their license yanked if they are convicted of a felony.

    Especially since...

    So the bounty hunter thing didn't pan out, huh?

    That was the article I read earlier that really got me thinking about it. How horrible for the owners of those horses ... What a nightmare
  18. What's with all the monensin-contaminated feed?

    I'll admit that my knowledge of horse and livestock feed production is limited, and I had essentially no knowledge of monensin until the recent stories of horses eating tainted feed, but as...

    If the horse is really great to ride and fine about everything except the farrier, I don't see that as being a reason to sell him or give him away ... Maybe try a different farrier, and/or have a...

    Mine gets the same thing, but he's gotten it in the winter whether clipped or unclipped ... It has never seemed to cause any problems other than being purely cosmetic, and it doesn't happen with the...

    This is what I do too! I save my CO for competitions, clinics, and the like and have a cheap schooling helmet for riding in the dusty arena at home.

    In my experience, very few if any horses react to humans based on "male" or "female" ... They react to your mannerisms and demeanor.

    As a general rule, most men (at least the ones who are good...

    I'm pretty sure that is the case! Traditional nylon covers would sometimes "ride up" a bit ... So they just made it extreme to show the logo button off on the front of the helmet!

    I have a CO Pro...

    I don't understand why anyone would voluntarily wear a hairnet for everyday schooling rides .... But that is their choice, and if they prefer to wear one, it certainly isn't hurting me or my horse,...
