    Shires are pretty darn close to Weatherbeetas fit-wise and Tack of the Day has them for a really nice price--I can spread the cheer because I already ordered one for myself! They're at the bottom of...

    I've read this three times today and I'm still laughing at DOUG F***ING PAYNE.

    He's definitely on my list of people to clinic with/audit someday. Doubt he'll ever come to South Dakota, though.

    One of the old guys I care for gets this issue in the winter. Last year I gave him a probiotic and it worked, sort of. This year, on the advice of a trusted friend, I fed him a handful of dry beet...

    My "nice, cute, pricey" clothes are all barn clothes. I've never spent more than $50 for a regular pair of pants but all of my breeches cost more than that. Before I discovered the magic of...

    The old cowhorse I care for is in his early 30s. He's having a bit of trouble with the harsh SD winter this year, and I had the "is it time?" discussion with my uncle a few days ago. Right now I'm...

    Yep. This is what my horse looked like in early May 2014 before the sunbleaching happened. Ungroomed and hadn't had a bath besides a Vetrolin rinse in about 2 years.

    1. I love hairnets. My hair is between my chin and my shoulders right not, not long enough for a low ponytail but long enough for some extremely annoying wispy ends. Even when I have long hair,...

    Bwahahahahahahahaha if only you saw him in his younger days before I figured out that if I want a productive ride in the winter he needs at least one quarter sheet! Although it's great for your...

    So answer this for me, fellow winter equestrians: why is my horse quiet as a church mouse when it's -4 but when it warms up to 40 he's a wild child?

    Besides the last 2 days, it's been pretty...

    I voted yes. When my mom had a Nissan Versa we once fit a recliner and ottoman in there with two adults. You could get almost as much stuff in there as in the bed of my Ford Ranger.

    With his time off and being young, does your saddle still fit? I also agree that you should speak to your vet about chemical help in this case. Rehabs like this are no fun!

    P.S. never thought...

    My horse licks other animals. It started with a barn cat named Jerry who was simply sunning himself on the stone wall that bordered my horse's paddock at our old barn. It has since progressed to my...

    Look at Stubbens. They fit withery horses well, and there are lots of used options in your price range. I'm also tall and while I liked the Roxanne best, I ended up with a Siegfried CS Extra. Also...

    We leg yield and half pass (badly) to avoid snow drifts. If there's fresh snow and I can tell where my tracks are, I practice shoulder-in and haunches-in. Snow is great for checking how straight...
