    I make myself commit to 10 minutes of bareback 5 days a week. But by the time I've got the horse in from the paddock and groomed and standing in the cross ties, I usually go ahead and tack up all the...

    I'm no laminitis expert, but I just went through it, and wanted to mention that another thing I was advised, while awaiting X-ray confirmation, was to stand the horse on sand. She preferred it to...

    Is she lame only on the right? Or does she have more of a tippy-toe, walkin' on eggshells thing goin' on in the front generally?

    If the latter, start soaking your hay right now. Schedule xrays....

    Slightly OT, but I recently heard a nerd on NPR aver that lightning can strike sideways, and originate from adjacent storms as much as 10 miles distant. His rule of thumb was that if you can so much...

    Ain't it the truth. It is the manner by which I became separated from an ACL I'd become quite attached to over the years.

    I would pay 3 times what you're asking. Hell, I'd pay five times what you're asking if it meant I could get off this dadgum farm for more than 8 hours. Let me know if you decide to move to Austin.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: when it comes to paddock poop, nothing beats the Gator fitted with a hydraulic dump-thing. I can pick 3 horses' worth on five acres in 20 minutes. I can...
  8. I had a Whiz horse myself. I just think that,...

    I had a Whiz horse myself. I just think that, when incorporating a euphemism for urination into a horse name, you should probably say it out loud before consigning it to posterity. We named ours...

    Spotify, a dedicated barn iPad, and a Bose Bluetooth speaker the size of a hardback novel. This morning I cranked up "Misty Mountain Hop" and shredded some bad ass air guitar on my manure fork. The...

    I love this woman because she don't give a crap...

    I love this woman because she don't give a crap what the mean conformist douchebags on the internet say about her. She hurts nobody and is happy just prancin' along. I have always wondered, why all...

    I just went through a nasty laminitis episode, and I'm here to tell ya, X-RAY ASAP to rule it out. Feisty, easy keeper Arabian started draggin' along without showing much change in her stride. Vet...

    BTW, I had never heard of Aiken before this thread. Is it somewhere in France?

    As an actual Texan, I am duty-bound to report that you are misinformed. Texans view all non-Texans, not as "Yankees," but as citizens of foreign lands. This does not mean that we want them to "go...

    Every so often -- say, at 6:30 AM every single day when the clanging of $250 horse shoes on the gate wakes me up to a day of manual labor -- a wistful pang for civilization sweeps over me. But...

    My Texan burn pile, which is currently awaiting the lifting of the drought-induced burn ban, would give the OP fits. It is basically the size of Guam.

    Fabulous! Great pictures. I've always envied the folks with somewhere to horse-swim. My creek is barely ankle deep these days; thanks, global warming!

    So I am definitely keeping the text message...

    That's horrible.

    Based on this morning's maiden voyage, I think I can almost get away with no reins at all. Holy crap indeed. Turns out if I just sort of plant my butt and mutter "whup" under my...

    Thanks for all the suggestions, y'all. I think she feeds Wellness super 5. Is there a potential correlation between food and seizure disorder?
  20. I don't know what was involved in the "basic...

    I don't know what was involved in the "basic workup," so I can't say if heartworms were ruled out. I do know that the vet offered to do a bunch of expensive scans. The friend loves the dog and will...
  21. My first reining lesson on the text message mare...

    My first reining lesson on the text message mare is in 3 hours. I haven't been on a horse in a month. We'll see who's crazy.
  22. What's the COTH forum analog for dog fanciers?

    A chum of mine is a first-time dog owner. She's got this young-ish Catahoula who is pretty awesome, but she's always got questions about this or that. She'll ask me stuff, and I'll inevitably think...

    This is what I did when my pad ended up over 2' high on one end. I know it looks weird at first but trust me, it will be OK. I put in a rampy driveway. It looks great. Kind of stately.

    Yeah, I really dig those dry Arab heads.

    I don't know if they do your route but Equine Express did a great job delivering my horse in one piece. Great 4-horse center load trailer, really nice...

    One of my mares has this problem. What's the dosage?
