    Is there any wisdom in going directly to a bone scan?

    I feel a little ridiculous bringing out the big guns when it could be as simple as soreness from a bad trim job, but is it better to rule out...

    Like the title says, my horse's feet are turning black. I don't know how long she's had the coloration; for some reason, this is the first it's registered.

    About a year ago I got dumped by the guy I was pretty sure I was going to marry. We'd been...
  11. Everything good, until under saddle | Vet visit update

    I have a six-year-old mare who is lovely, kind, and athletic…just not under saddle. In the pasture she runs and bucks and plays and does incredible sliding stops and rollbacks. On the lunge...

    This is the second couch in just as many months that my dog has destroyed. They've been freebies, so it's no financial loss, but dang it's annoying!

    I'm definitely going with a new saddle.

    No joke, out of all the saddles at the consignment store, one fit my horse. ONE. And it was waaaay too big for me.

    Vinton saddles?

    Hauled hard-to-fit pony up to the tack store, went through their entire inventory, and found one (ONE!) saddle that fit: a Vinton cutter. The second-best fit was a brand new Martin, naturally.
