    Glad you got out. We put a horse is a sale barn once. Went to visit him as we were 'in the neighborhood'. Horse was standing against back wall of his stall and took a l-o-n-g time to come forward...

    I agree with enjoytheride. Train him up, see what he likes to do, play it by ear and enjoy the ride (haha, get it?) I was given a weedy, snarky, opinionated, nearly nasty 3 year old TB gelding years...

    Put her in the ground, if you haven't already. If she moves on and is wicked, she'll suffer for it and no animal deserves that. A peaceful end, to me, is far better than the downwards spiral she is...

    It takes ages. Be patient. Those funds were pretty much spent before you withdrew. You'll get your $, it just takes a while.

    I used to feed whole grains/corn but then I got a horse with EPSM and I got smart about how bad feeding grain can be. Now I serve mostly alfalfa pellets with a low carb/high fat feed mixed in for...
