    Hello thread.

    So the stars have aligned. Pony has responded 100% to steroids in both the lungs and eyes department. I found a barn a few miles away from work. I got a better job that I...

    I will PM you when I get home axl. :)

    And yes, as a PSA - POAs are neither appies nor ponies as a rule, despite my joking. I rode with a POA breeder in college. Desperate for a horse fix, I...

    Yes, to clarify, I am enjoying my time with him. My only real deadline at this point to find him a situation is before they put roundbales out in November (unfortunately an unavoidable part of...

    Yup! On the advice of the vet he's wearing a fly mask 24/7 and it appears to be helping and he's responding nicely to the ointment. Plus he looks adorable in the mask I intended to torture my TB...
  8. Really great pony with a bucket of problems - Iowa

    I really hate to do this, but I have to start exploring my options so that a super great pony can have a great life.

    After battling issues with my thoroughbred gelding, I decided to buy a cheap...

    And you think you would honestly be able to provide him a better quality of life than he has now?

    Sorry I was going to stay out of this but the ignorance of the racing industry within the horse...

    I will say that I almost miss the feeling of sliding into a pair of tall boots and the gorgeous feeling of freedom right after having someone pull them back off you....

    Of course when I got back...

    The owners of the barn I boarded at when I was a kid tragically lost their son in a car accident. Chores were immediately taken over by family, neighbors, friends, and boarders. They're still in...

    I have a big dumb hot fancy sort of sound gelding that I know people think that I'm dumb for owning. People have TOLD me they assumed when I sent him for some time as a hunter on the A circuit that...

    I speak as a representative of owners of high maintenance, sensitive, hot, and kind of stupid bay thoroughbred hunters that my guy is kind of obsessed with the mule in the barn and wants to be his...

    Oh man perfect timing. I've been craving a particular HKM cooler and I was browsing eBay since it seems to be the best place to find small businesses that distribute their stuff in the states. In...

    Yes but most companies don't have pro-rating built into their policy but will happily do so to leave a customer with a positive impression.

    I have spent the last 7 years working in corporate...

    I don't think you can gauge this person's goodness by the behavior of her horse. My horse is a total derp who can occasionally cause trouble but I don't think it reflects on my value as a person. I'm...

    Its also possible the horse simply isn't worth significantly more now, I think the horse needs to be valued based on the market, not on what was put into him since the original sale.
