    I did not used to be "that person", but I have taken to the occasional festooning.

    My poor horse got it just the other day when the vet doped him for his teeth.

    Late, but LOVE this. Almost makes me want to breed a donkey so I could have fun with the foal.

    But then it will be big. And I'd have four donkeys, and then be known as the crazy donkey lady.

    I...

    My then 5 y/o was diagnosed back in the late '90s. We noticed slight toe dragging on downhill slopes, did the blood and spinal (both positive, of course) and treated with dicalzuril. In retrospect it...

    What kind of feed and bedding (that they would have supplied) do you use that costs $500/month per horse?


    As for rising feed costs, during the drought of a few years ago, one barn charged a "hay...

    Bizarre question

    Obviously horses can dream and move when they are lying down to sleep, but does anyone have any experience with an equine seeming to do this while sleeping standing up?

    My yearling mini donkey was...

    Oh, I'm sure they are plotting "something".

    FYI to all with donkeys, they can get chilled more easily than horses with sedation. There are good actual published articles you could read, or (cue...

    I would think he is safest going out with the older gelding. He may teach him some manners a little more roughly than you would like, but it's probably better than what would happen out with his...

    Once they drop, it's time to chop.

    If you can find them, it's time ;)

    I find the flexible ones are more comfortable for my knees if I am going to be riding for hours.

    If I am jumping or trying to equitate, I find the standard fillis are much better.

    I think this is kind of two separate problems. As others said, the trainer's job is to train horses. An instructor's job is to train riders. If you have a trainer that you expect to teach you how to...

    It has been around decades, if not centuries (millennia?). The forum didn't make it up ;)

    I certainly heard it as a kid, and that was a *few* decades ago.

    "Spunky". There, that is the extent of nice words I can say for Grey today.

    Glad you sat through the punkishness. They just can't enjoy the moment, can they?;)

    Boyfriend thanks you for the mention... and it's not really that *off course* to have it here. Our equids have a disability of sorts.

    Everyday is the norm here; you'll see an occasional (ususally Western/AQHA type barn) that will not do Sunday. Hell, they won't even turn out Sunday. It does seem to get the owners out at least once...
