    I just got most of mine out this week and have about 6 more to go on the COTH list. I have received some LOVELY cards already.

    As a seller, I insist that blood is pulled at the PPE for testing. It is entirely up to the buyer to just hold the blood or run tests.

    All my contracts provide information about any medication...

    QuickBooks for many years; have moved to the online version. Pretty easy to use and most bookkeepers/accountants use it.

    I must be lucky because I have never heard this Christmas Shoes or Dominick the Donkey songs. I listen to NPR and keep out of the malls this time of year, so I'm Christmas music deprived. If I need...

    Actually, that's not what I said. I just said that the US does not regulate drug prices as does Canada, Japan, Europe and most of the rest of the world. It happens that I have worked with the...

    This thread has made me so happy! My blanketing happy field boarder left for another barn as I could not risk having Dobbin blanketed per her direction. First, the mare hates blankets and spends...

    I'm kind of amazed that Zooey had the time to ride a horse into the ground these days.

    I am so sorry, CP, but the Saudi prince is coming to my beautiful estate for intensive riding lessons next month. I can only hope they can afford to build the indoor that I will need to conduct such...

    Sometimes they get creative. I've had the person is a foreign student on Guam coming to a university near my farm (must love driving in traffic) and having no phone service. I got two nearly...

    Sorry to hear about the boarder's woes. A sickly foal is not a good thing particularly if it is long drawn out sickliness. If the boarder could get rid of the mini and foal, she would be better...

    No argument about following the law and using a stablemen's lien if necessary. As I have said before, as a BO, if someone goes south on paying board, I give them immediate notice. My boarding...

    There are no barns "near Reston." Reston is a planned community in the middle to Fairfax County. While there are some private barns around, they are few and far between. This area has not been...

    Yes, and I hope they don't have to go there. I would make every effort to get the horses out even if that means not giving the 30 day notice required for a stablemen's lien immediately. I am...

    I'm sorry. I think the answer is going to depend on what you price him for. I had a warmblood gelding who was NQR and sold him for a very low price with a full disclosure, to a home where he is...

    Laurierace, I don't have these issues because I have a contract. When I have had someone go deadbeat on me, I don't waste time trying to keep their horse so that I can place a lien on it. I try to...

    I ALWAYS use scissors on my horses' manes, but they are Fjords and have this mohawk thing going. You really can't pull it and I would be very dangerous with clippers.

    I never blanket ever. They...

    I live in an area that closes down when we "think" it might snow or storm. I agree that it is pretty wussy, but the threat of serious flooding is huge. I am always amazed at how people will try to...
  20. I am not advocating stopping care, I am just...

    I am not advocating stopping care, I am just advocating giving immediate notice. There is a difference. If the horses are worthless as the OP states, then why bother with a stablemen's lien? In...

    Honestly, if there is no contract and poor bookkeeping, the focus will be to stop the financial bleed NOW. I would not give 30 days notice. If boarder has a barn on her property, then she needs...

    Whatever mare you select, be sure that she is of the best quality you can afford and the stallion is building on what she offers. Don't expect a stallion to magically compensate for a mediocre mare....

    Why can't you get a horse from this breeding program that has good conformation? No offense, but unless you are getting a great deal, I would not consider buying a problem 18 month old. There are...

    Sorry to hear the news, HH, but glad it went well. I had to put my old girl down last month after 18 1/2 years of ownership. I wish she could have lived forever but I will always know where she is....

    If you want to sell the horse, then move to A. I am going to assume it is a nice enough place that buyers will be happy with it. I also assume that you will be doing the selling. As long as you...
