    Just passing through to say your screen name coupled with the subject line was good for a chuckle.

    FatDinah yes, Back Country Horsemen is a good place to start, I know the folks at the chapter in St. George as well as Kanab (I belong to the Mt. Ridge chapter myself, in the SL Valley). You might...

    Very rarely, because no good deed goes unpunished. I do 'carpool' for things like the annual Pony Express reride, and an upcoming trip to Canyon de Chelly, but otherwise, only now and then if I...

    We have a second home, five acres in Hurricane, 30 minutes from Zion. When we were looking, I saw some attractive possibilities in Apple Valley except that it was a little too 'high' for us...

    If she's yours, and she was well behaved for you before she had her 6 year vacation, I can't imagine it won't come back soon with your simply handling her as you did before. Horses don't forget. In...

    That is my vet's point of view, since he practices both western and eastern, he sees it as just more tools in the tool box.

    I am lucky to have good travelers, so I don't do anything special, just load 'em and go. They travel with hay in front of them and I've learned over the years that they will rarely drink, even on an...

    Well I know who not to go to for veterinary advice. I'll agree that animal communicators are bogus, but you clearly have no idea as to the physiology of paralysis. Since you missed the detail...

    Well, for me, seeing is believing. Restoring function to a paralyzed tail worked for my horse. Restoring, permanently, nonfuctioning neural pathways if that's the right term. He had very periodic...

    Very hard to catch an adult in a havahart, but yes your best chance is smelly cat food as bait.

    I tried a chiropractor on myself and found it interesting, but not interesting enough to explore further for me or my horse. However, I'm sold on acupuncture, since some years back I tried it for a...

    Quarter horses are pretty much warmbloods, I have joked that I should market mine as 'Texas warmblood' and fetch more for them than they would bring as mere quarter horses.

    I was the older sister, and little sis and I were always thick as thieves on the horses, because we were the only two horsey people in the family and if we wanted to show, we needed to handle the...

    ASB, I think perhaps my attempt to be brief was misleading to you as to my thoughts.

    My point is that bad things can and do happen to horses every day. Racing breakdowns are horrible, but frankly,...

    I saw photos today of two emaciated horses that a friend in Texas rescued. As upsetting as it is to see a horse break a leg, for me personally it's far more upsetting to know how long those horses...

    I can understand your complete surprise at the situation and there is no fault or blame to be placed. Hindsight is 20/20. But now, forewarned is forearmed, and if he were mine, I'd reestablish...

    High lining on Forest or NPS land is fine, preferably using tree savers to anchor the high line. I use hobbles under supervision and high line overnight. I have friends who use pickets for grazing,...

    The McCall I got to fit my hard to fit gelding is a 16" so too big for me, 15" is optimal. But as you observe there's a sweet spot that works. He will go in my 15" custom ranch type too, but he...

    I'd just like to add in passing that when you are loping, your own right or left foot will be 'leading' slightly on the same lead as the horse. That's one check, and with practice you should also...
