    For two ponies: About $4.50 per pony per day for hay, oats, vit/min/hoof supplements, salt, carrots, apples and treats. And I know this because of the very handy FeedXL program which calculates such...

    You know those endless shod vs barefoot threads you see elsewhere? This subject is the Driving Forum equivalent of that. :lol: Except that it will probably remain genteel so there's no need to go...

    I wouldn't turn a horse out in a blinker bridle. With her vision limited by the blinkers, if she whacks into anything it's likely to affect her confidence. She needs to know that when you limit her...

    Wonderful. I understand this team are all between ages 19 and 22 (the horses, I mean. :D)

    They might be Norikers, which is sort of a giant Haflinger.:D Or perhaps Black Forest horses.

    Another note. I started using Carbonite a few months ago after a hard drive failure and all the related hassle and loss of data. Hubby has been using it for quite some time in his business and I...

    Sue, I made the same awful discovery over the weekend and now have a big jumble of hundreds of photos that used to be in sequential order in albums with captions on each photo. I received no prior...

    This is one of the best books I've run across for explaining the basics of harness, carriage, etc. It could easily be subtitled "Driving for Dummies." :D Good luck and enjoy. Driving is highly...

    This would concern me. The neckstrap is a piece that has relatively little stress on it, particularly when you have a split dual-strap construction like this. What would cause one of those straps to...

    Two summers in a row now that I've dealt with this, the difference being that after lots of trial and error last year, I now know what to do: Wash the legs well with Betadine scrub. Follow with a...

    A friend at our barn lost a horse to a lightning strike and the horse was in her stall at the time. You couldn't have done anything better than you did. It was just one of those very sad occurences.

    Count me among those who had a horse blistered by MTG. Couldn't get rid of that stuff fast enough.

    I use a drill too. It works well and I haven't had problems with raggedy edges at all.

    Others will probably chime in on different suppliers.

    I drive thick brushy trails and have never had the strings get caught on anything. It has never even occurred to me that such a thing could happen. I think it's very unlikely. I guess if you were...

    Congratulations on retiring, Sue. Enjoy your trip out west. I take it you're not driving Belgians on a wagon train this time? :lol:

    I also love watching the strings flutter as we go down the road! Graceful and very effective.

    My boys have thick double manes that protect their necks. But this discussion has got me thinking that...

    I got caught by surprise yesterday morning and will be applying extra bug repellant to MY face in the future before setting out! It was the worst gnat attack I've experienced in 20 years of living in...

    I think you'll find it easier to put it on over your harness. I use string nets for driving and they go on over the harness, before I put the reins on. But I also use the Cashel Bug Armor for riding...

    But if you switch your pair from side to side, as I do, then you have to remember to switch out the trace carriers too. I don't always remember that little detail. :lol:

    Clueless here! My pairs and singles bridles all have teardrops on them. They help tame bushy Haflinger forelocks so I guess I'll just mosey along in clueless fashion, even though I really am aware...
