    The retirees here have their manes trimmed with scissors, or else they end up looking like Rastafarian horses.

    I am really sorry this thread seems to have degenerated into a "BO's are crazy and controlling!" vs. "Boarders are insane and know nothing". Can we please agree there are crazy BO's and crazy...

    So, one of my suggestions when looking at possible boarding barns is to figure out: "are the horses happy?". The other thing is "is there low turnover/have boarders been there for years". I think...

    Lady E and the several other barn owners that have chimed in are absolutely right. There are many BO's on COTH, most of whom don't post with lots of barn drama.

    I'd add another point, which is...

    I'm absolutely not saying that everyone should wear permthrin treated clothing. I weigh the risks of catching a tick-borne illness vs. being exposed to permethrin.

    On the tick side, there's ...

    So does mine. Plus, he always does my farm on the same day of the week, at the same time. So he's here on a Thursday, around 10 am, every 6th week. Both he and I can count on the schedule, and it...

    If youwanted to make a change, you could wear clothes (t-shirt/shorts/socks) treated with permethrin.

    Everyone's attitudes come from their own experiences. If you live in Tennessee where lyme...

    AAAHHHHH -- the misinformation out there is so frustrating to me!!!

    Doxy is not bad for kids! But they don't prescribe it for kids under the age of 9 or so because it can discolor their teeth. ...

    If it turns out she is not sound on a permanent basis, then I'd say it is VERY difficult to find a good home. Especially since she's so young -- so someone taking her would be potentially signing on...

    Exactly. I posted the link to the New England Journal of Medicine's study on the other thread. TBchick, it ABSOLUTELY is the best standard of care to take a dose (and some doctors believe more than...

    While they may prefer other donkeys, I don't think it is too terrible to have all horses and one donkey.

    I took in a 30 year old donkey (OP -- note their lifespan! 40 years is not uncommon) in...

    This is an interesting thread.

    I have a suggestion from out in left field -- would your daughter be interested in joining Pony Club? It is a great resource, and a great pool of knowledgeable...

    I'll further this discussion to say that if your trainer thinks it is a good idea for you to buy this horse, she probably does not have your best interests at heart. In my opinion, very few...

    Ack! I'll be looking for a saint of a pony (or Hony) in a little while for me . . . .

    He seems fantastic. How big is he, exactly? Carry a medium adult? (5'4" 130 lb)?

    Can't vote either. As to whether it should be included in the board, the answer is "it depends what you are paying, and what the level of service is". How could anyone possibly answer that question...

    Leaving out the question of whether you are being paid fairly, OP (and it seems like you are not), I'd just add this point to the discussion: as a (small) BO, I, and only I, make decisions about...

    This is another thread where something doesn't add up. Either, as the OP says, the care is excellent -- and in that case, can we assume that the BO knows what she is doing, and is taking all the...

    Me too! I got Otterbox thanks to COTH and it was absolutely no good for my life, running a barn with 10 horses. Dust got under the screen cover almost immediately. Went with Lifeproof ($$$) and...
