    Sure, long as it gets in him. We mix it with a little molasses in the grain. The knock on putting meds on the feed us you don't know how much they got...but if it went in the feed tub and that tub is...

    It's the peat in some bogs that can preserve bodies. There are medieval humans naturally mummified out of some peat bogs. Even without the peat, if a body is covered in mud to the point no oxygen...

    On the subject of the "marching walk" being the one you want when schooling, not the plugging around walk shuffling up a dust cloud? Do you realize the collected trot is not only "bouncy" with legs...

    You got an at least 15 year old horse here so what he did and how he went in the past is not relevant to the horse he is now. I would get the front feet x rayed as well as look to some management...

    That's not bad but if you use a half seat or two point more between the fences when you don't want the collected canter, she'll repond better when you sit into her to collect. Right now you are...

    How far is she willing to drive? Give us a ballpark range on reasonable- prices range from about 475 to 900 depending on ammenities and services offered. She will want an indoor at least Dec thru...

    I'll give you a bump up here. I don't recall him but that rather distinctive, off center snip (guess that what it would be closest to) and light chestnut color would stand out in memory and the...

    You know, I see a lot of bits that are too thick for the horse to carry comfortably and cause fussing, excessive slobbering and other annoying behavior. See even more that are too dam wide to sit...

    Unfortunately, she's left the building and probably is not coming back or posting videos. Her loss, even if she does not realize it. We need to direct attention where it is appreciated. Not search...

    Nothing wrong with saying uncle and putting a stronger rider up. We all can telegraph our anticipation of a spook to the horse to the point they think "oh, she's scared TOO". Vicious circle.

    Judging from many threads on these forums, I'd say it depends on location, I can assure you many have not found it easy to find full care stall board with arenas for under 400 even in smaller...
