    20+ years ago I lived in a very small town about a 3 hour drive from the nearest Costco. When people found out you were going to the "big city" they would hand over a list and some cash. Seriously....

    I've got a Shetland pony that a rescue found when they were picking up another horse. Besides being starved and having no hoof care she was pregnant by a full sized stallion. The rescue sold her and...

    I think I fed about a cup a day. This was for the mare that died in 2008 so it's been a while. I started out grinding it with a coffee grinder but finally gave up on that and just fed it whole. I...

    My old QH mare had sweet itch. Feeding her flax helped. You should be able to find some articles about that if you Google it.

    I rope my goats and sheep more than my horses these days. Most of the goats are actually pretty good about coming when called but not the sheep. When they get loose it can be a real pain. The...

    I've been around a lot of "trained" horses, ones that show and are considered "well broke", that have no clue how to give to pressure. And then one day someone puts pressure on them, they throw a...

    That is just part of teaching the horse to give to pressure. Sometimes a spoiled horse (or a totally untrained one) can really flip out when the human on the end of the rope doesn't cave in to their...

    Mostly I use the rope, not the act of roping. Watching a good horseman with rope skill use it in training is pretty cool.

    I'll use it in the "normal" way, around the neck, for leading or for...

    I can rope mine as long as they are standing still. :D All of mine, including the ponies, have been roped. It can be a good training tool.

    I have three pet sheep. They live with my mini and two ponies. The Suffolk ewe is bigger than my mini. :D They all get along just fine. I need to shear them this weekend though.

    They are very, very good jumpers. I speak from experience. As a new sheep owner I proudly brought my new $50 CL ewe home in the trailer. I had a rope on her and was holding on to the rope as I...

    My dog trainer was telling me about using TAG teaching in the fishing industry to teach newbies how to safely and efficiently process the fish in the big Alaskan plants. Said it worked quite well.

    In the interest of continuing your equine education you could show your videos of Lease Horse #1 to your new friends at the new barn (including the owner of LH #2 who apparently knows the “real”...

    No decent tack stores around here but this place offers trail rides. Not sure if they will be open when you come though though. Whatever you do, when driving from Western Washington to Eastern...

    If I put the tail wagging on a cue I can ask for it any time, anywhere. And at my Saturday class that I had him in for eight weeks I often had him on a short table (like an agility pause table) to...

    There was a lecture that covered having your dog look the judge in the eye. We need to practice it though. He's a friendly little dog and usually wags his tail when approached. And I can always...

    He definitely doesn't look full grown. Lacks muscling. He's pretty good on a table and knows to wait until I lift him off. I'm more worried about the gaiting but I've got four weeks to work on...

    I'm an obedience person. And a Cattle Dog person. And a clicker person. I've happily shown my ILP/PAL ACDs for the past 13 years. Last November, through unusual (though legal) circumstances, I...

    I stopped all contact with her last year. After foal #2 (a filly) was born I privately messaged Kristibell's mom with a gentle reminder that if the stallion wasn't gelded there were going to be a...

    She loudly vocalized at the Buck Brannaman clinic in 2013 about all the "mean" people putting cold pieces of metal in the horse's mouths. Her hero of the day was a man (not Buck) that was using a...
