    When my TB mare was younger she was very spooky. I did lots of "bombproofing" type stuff with her. I wanted to make sure she didn't have any excuses for spooking. I also used ear pom-poms. If she...

    My stay away from color is grey. I had a friend who had a grey and he almost bled to death from melanomas. The other reason I would stay away from greys is that I live ( and board in the land of red...

    I listen to my older horse. I have had her since she was a yearling and she is 20 this year. She is very well behaved and if she tells me no, I usually believe her and find another way to go.
