    I'd use rope or tape--very visible-- but the charger is the more important thing to focus on. Make sure you have lots of juice, which means it will be one of the more expensive ones. Sorry but you...

    Yup. Hot hot hot wire.
    I know there are lots of Haffie lovers here but every single one I've worked with had no respect for fences. They learn early on to use those bull necks of theirs to get...

    I agree that this high level of emotion is not warranted because she's just one day late (and you told her not to worry about it). But disagree that this means the BO should not bring it up now, and...

    Don't do it. Maybe her setup works for sedate, long-time residents (not that I'd ever endorse those conditions), but NO WAY would I put a young, big horse into those conditions where you know...

    Beautiful horse. Based on the pics, there's a more fundamental issue of posture & balance. Rather than sitting straight and tall, everything in your body is tilted forward and down, which is...

    Why can't confo pics and video be sent to you? If she's for sale at $2000, I'd be shocked that the seller doesn't have these materials right at hand. Why exactly does the decision have to be made...

    Also ANY sudden change in mechanics-- even when it's "for the better"-- is going to cause stress on joints that are quite used to doing things the old way thankyouverymuch. Doesn't mean the change...

    ok, ok, I watched (despite my gut feel that the world probably doesn't need any more cute kitten videos) And that really WAS cute. :) :)

    Just as with current politics, there is a healthy middle ground shared by the majority of the population, but the extreme factions are very effective at silencing & negating the middle by denying the...

    Vet should be able to tell you whether the cause is chronic or recent injury. If you find no swelling, heat, broken skin, or abscess, that would certainly point towards a pre-existing condition. ...

    Ooof. What a mess, sorry you're in this spot. Was he lame at the walk when you brought him in from the field and loaded him up? If it were an abscess I'm surprised that he showed no signs of...

    How long has home been on the market? Keep in mind the good cop/bad cop story about the owners may be just a tale to make the house seem more desirable.

    ps i have a good book on longeing that I'd be willing to loan you, if you'll send it back. PM me your addy.

    Without seeing first hand what's taking place, it's not really possible to diagnose / suggest solutions. It sounds as if the person trying to longe him was a novice--was it a pony clubber or a...

    Ok, but we can't tell what foundation exists and how well the horse moves off your leg while riding forward. We can't tell what aides you are actually applying.

    Rather than try to type a list of...

    I suspect you are posting off your knee a bit? So when the scoot happens, you're base is essentially cut off and your center of gravity is waaayy above the horse which makes it almost impossible to...

    Yup. Say nothing to current boarder. Absolutely nothing good would come of it, for either of you. If long-term boarders is what you want, you'll need to change your screening process to emphasize...

    Part of the issue is defining one's riding level based on years rather than performance-related criteria. I get that no one wants the label "Beginner", least of all a teen who's been riding most of...

    Great ideas, thanks everyone!
    I like the finial ball and log slice ideas especially.
    Hanging by the crownpiece works better in my situation, in case DH needs to halter one of the horses. For all...

    Look at "Bondi Band". I got mine for running but it's good under my helmet too. It's very thin stretchy lycra that won't move around, and you seriously will not notice it under your helmet. They...
