  1. Bumping - You Tube video up now

    I've got some rough video up on this pony. Weather is terrible here, and we had a day now where there is at least some thaw so we could put him in the round pen. Please excuse the burrs in his mane...
  2. Dragon - very nice pony

    Just trying to bump this up. I've had some interested folks, but none close enough to come get him. He is a lovely pony, but needs a patient program due to being just a bit skittish with people. He...
  3. Be careful if you have a "climber"

    Overall, those kinds of outdoor stalls can work. Be careful if you have a "climber." Weanlings and yearlings are notorious for this kind of behavior. A friend of mine had a yearling in a indoor...
  4. Rubbermaid Trough -

    I have a leaky Rubbermaid trough I am not using, I think I will try that. I also have found the WONDERFUL AGI round bales feeders, and have a few of those on the farm. They come in sections, and I...
  5. There are more where he came from...

    Well, stay in touch, there are lots more at my farm and I dont mind sending one out on the cuff now and then. And besides, I need to bump this post up, Dragon is still here. There are two interested...
  6. Don't rule it out

    I had a 15.1 ASB/quarter horse cross back in the 80's that was VERY competitive in the 3' Amateur Hunters at A and local shows, we were champion at several A shows over the years, and even went...
  7. Where fear comes from

    I think that trainers need to understand that fear is a real emotion and that sometimes we can train ourselves to get past it, and sometimes not. Understand that the same physically challenging...
  8. FANCY 13h 2006 pony in Southern Indiana

    Dragon is a 13 hand welsh pony, no papers but came from breeding farm and probably full welsh. Very athletic, four years old and FANCY. Not a mean bone in his body but he is a little distrustful of...
  9. 13 hand welsh cross pony 4yo, Southern Indiana

    I have a very flashy four year old (2006) welsh gelding, no papers. He is most likely full welsh, but I have no papers on him. He is a bit skittish with people, but handles safely leading, tying,...
  10. Large Pony's First Show - comments welcome

    This was a first show for this pony, just a rather large schooling show, a nice environment (allowing late schooling for a rather lazy trainer) that was fairly relaxing. Would love comments. Video...
  11. Advice/Suggestions needed for hay GROUND feeders

    I've got a mare with TMJ issues that needs to be fed on the ground. She tends to be a little piggy, throwing and pawing her hay around the stall. I'd greatly appreciate advice on hay feeders for the...
  12. 1/2 Trakehner 5 yr mare Southern Indiana

    To approved home only, 1/2 Trakehner, 1/2 American Saddlebred five year old mare. 15 hands. No vices, sound, but not started under saddle. She is a little touchy and timid with people. She is by...
  13. I'm in total agreement with EnjoyTheRide. I find...

    I'm in total agreement with EnjoyTheRide. I find that the disunited canter is far more likely to be due to the head being up and the back being hollow. Your horse is probably out in the field...
  14. Here is another aspect of the problem. TRY...

    Here is another aspect of the problem. TRY actually TELLING the potential buyer that they should not buy the horse when their heart is set on it. I have had that happen, and it can get dicey. If...
  15. A good right of first refusal clause can be...

    A good right of first refusal clause can be tricky to draft. One basic premise to that clause is that there has to be a term specified. Here it appears you specified the initial one year term, that...
  16. If you breed a large horse with good proportions...

    If you breed a large horse with good proportions to a smaller pony with same proportions (whether it be 12, 13, or 14 hands) you will NOT get a "committee offspring." The size is dependent mainly on...

    I would not look to the bit for the fix, but rather to the ride. I would do lots of trot-halt-trot transitions. The key is in the trot out of the halt. That is where the horse will learn to track...

    Please understand these comments are meant to be positive and constructive.

    I noticed several things:

    1. Somewhat braced leg
    2. A bit of pumping with the upper body and a little roundness...
  19. People's thoughts here are encouraging. I guess...

    People's thoughts here are encouraging. I guess my lack of familiarity with eventing shows. In H/J land if it is over 14.2 and under 15.3, it is rarely given a second look unless is it broke to...
  20. I've wanted to get her started, I just cannot...

    I've wanted to get her started, I just cannot find the time. I do think she is game at the jumps, careful, not spooky, but not overly aggressive. I know getting them started is the best way to get...
  21. 15.1 hand sport horse - is eventing in her future?

    I have a little 15.1 hand 1/2 Trakehner mare that I THINK would be a good event type. I'm not sure if that is doable or makes sense for me, I am 5'9". I generally ride the bigger guys (16.2+) for...
