    It might not have been about you and been about the other, impatient car instead. They may have been actively blocking that driver from passing -- maybe it was someone they had seen driving/passing...

    Thanks, this gives me some places to start.

    retrofit, I've wondered about the velcro straps at the shoulder. They look like they would cause the blankets to fold/be an excellent way to cause rubs....

    Wherever possible, have a range of price/quality options.

    For example, I recently went in to buy a lunge whip. I hate the feel/balance of the cheap lunge whip, but last time I bought the $$$ whip...
  4. Talk to me about blankets - narrow-chested horse

    I haven't had to buy blankets in about 10 years.

    What brands have a good lightweight, waterproof blanket that fits horses who are narrow in the chest?

    Are the Schneiders blankets still a good...

    It's a 17.5 W, but I think it may have been adjusted at some point because I'm not convinced it's a true W. So not an off-the-wall size.

    It's just as well it didn't sell last spring, as I'm using...

    I have a GG and was pricing it for sale (again) last spring. $600 is a good price, if it's in good condition.

    I don't know about resale potential, honestly. I've been trying to sell mine off and...

    It has a different nutritional profile than other types of hay -- more protein, more calcium. Some people will jump to grain/ration balancers to supplement those things, but others like to use...

    Also, if you don't have experience working with a horse like him, take some lessons from someone who can give you some more tools in your toolbox, teach you about timing and reading his body language...

    I can't tell from your post--

    Are you correcting him immediately and unambiguously when he nails you?

    If you are taking the time to halter him and take him to the ring, he doesn't have a CLUE...

    If she is not doing this already, she might want to consider giving the horse electrolytes and MSM (at 20,000 mg/day).

    I had a mare who stocked up when temps hit 95, like clockwork, and this...

    I'm not sure what you are taking exception to.

    There are only about 5,000 Dartmoor ponies left so, yes, they are a rarer breed. He certainly doesn't look neglected. Assuming the ad is relatively...

    Holidays are usually defined by the company and are days all (or most) employees have off. They are generally national holidays -- Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc.

    Vacation days are days...

    I just got back from taking a month off to travel/cross off several bucket list items.

    The fact that my company encourages people to do things like this is one of the reasons I've stayed with them.

    Well, as someone already said, people who paid $$$ for their horse and are showing W/T or even Training probably aren't going to chime in for fear of looking like they got a bad deal/overpaid/etc.

    Jim was $1,500. Late teens. Trained as a HJ/Eq horse, stepping down. Took me from crossrails to a solid 3' rider in all three rings, then to Second Level in Dressage.

    Ro was $2,500. Helped her...

    On the flip side, I almost didn't buy my horse because he was my favorite color.

    I thought I was being a color-blind, sentimental idiot (he's also marked similarly to the mare I had lost the year...

    For the same reason I buy my horses instead of full leasing from someone else.

    With some exceptions, I'm just not keen on the idea of anyone paying full upkeep on a horse and not having full...

    I started as a technical writer at my company (software development) but am a business analyst now.

    What are you looking for in a new position? A track that will stay focused on writing/editing or...

    I love England; I feel at home there in a way I don't anywhere else in the world. My next big trip will probably be hiking Hadrian's Wall in England, actually.

    Why would you sweat her neck in hot/humid weather? Horses have a hard enough time in the sort of weather you mention -- there's no need to make her more miserable for the sake a short-term (lasts...

    I really like him also and wanted to find more horses with him in their pedigree -- that site is going to give me even more help than I was hoping to get. Thanks!
