    One of my mares is a complete raging slut in the pasture when she's in heat, but the second you put her halter on, she's all business. The only difference under saddle is that she'll call to her...

    Yeah, one day I was hiking, and came across a steaming fresh pile of cougar feces. It had clearly been deposited there very recently, but there was no cougar in sight. That made me nervous.

    I did the same thing a few years ago. Didn't even get on the horse, just got back in my car and left.

    Generally speaking, I try to keep all my horses in a state that is just past ideal in the direction that is opposite their natural tendancy. That means that I try to keep my super easy keepers a...

    I'm a hoarder. One rideable horse, one harness, 13 saddles, at least half a dozen bridles, and a plethora of bits and girths. Yeah, I keep almost every piece of tack I've ever owned. :lol:

    I'm not generally crazy about other people's kids, so every year we've offered my son the option of either having a party or taking a small mini-vacation to somewhere fun in the area. So far he's...

    While I have owned (and even enjoyed riding) a couple of really badly herd bound horses in the past, if I were shopping right now I'd try to avoid it. Mostly because my horses are at home, so the...

    That drives me nuts too, but my friends have definitely gotten a lot better about that. Possibly since they can count on me to post a detailed fictitious response as if I actually knew what happened....

    I don't know anyone around here that has a hay hut or anything similiar, but I've seen and heard about a ton of injuries related to the metal round bale feeders. And miraculously, one of my friends...

    It's 5 degrees here now, but the sun is shining and the wind isn't bad right now, so it was actually pretty tolerable outside. And my horses have been hanging out in the middle of the field instead...

    Agreed. I tried to console myself with the fact that at least the high temps weren't in the negatives, but the wind today was pretty brutal.

    I'm in the "never" group as well.

    While I wouldn't completely rule out the possibility of ever having it done, I've never felt the need for any of my own horses (past or present), and I don't...

    While the mare's udder will be pretty full and uncomfortable at first, she will dry up a lot faster if you take the foal off completely.

    One other thing to consider, depending on your location, is...

    I used to have a tri-colored rough coated Collie. His registered name was Knightwoods Jet, and we called him Jet. Best dog ever.

    What's the difference between a Rolling Stone and a Scotsman?

    The Rolling Stone says "Hey! You! Get Off of My Cloud!"
    The Scotsman says "Hey! MacLeod! Get off of my ewe!"
