    I think "bond" is subjective. I think there are some horses that are patient beyond all sense of reason, which makes them good kid horses. Those horses would probably be just as good with any kid,...

    I love how RARAs always cheer in excitement about this news. It shows exactly where their priorities lie...Which is not at all with the animals they're pretending to care about.

    I was having this conversation with one of my Mentors the other day and she was saying that even in humans who are identical twins, there's about a 12% difference in genetic makeup (thus why they may...

    Someone could also make a mock video of "equestrian wear" walking down a runway/barn aisle - complete with accessories of muck rake, sneeze marks and sweat stains ;)

    I had my first horse offered back to me when she was first diagnosed with navicular. She was still sound, and a great horse they just caught it on radiographs. At the time I already owned a horse...

    I just want to throw a few things in here.

    First off, I don't believe 4 months is "way too young" to wean a foal. It's not unusual for foals to be weaned as young as 3 months if their dam is...

    Sadly, it was bound to happen. Mares are having babies every year, and there aren't enough people adopting (primarily because the average horse person doesn't have the experience to rehome and...

    I may be totally off base, but my understanding was most carriage horses were spared a lot of the hock/back problems we see in riding horses and in general had a lower incidence of sport related...

    We started to have an infestation a few years back. We had to have the exterminator out every few months to take care of them. As I was getting ready to move out of the house I went into the attic...

    Ah, ok. I must have misunderstood when I read your first post. I interpreted "less lame" as "she's still lame, but less so than when she started". I'm glad to hear she's fine at a walk.

    I worry...

    Just one point to bring up about nerve blocks (and it's more of a general education versus adding anything to what you want to know), you're generally just isolating the approximate region where the...

    Too bad they didn't show pictures of said foals eating horse poop, as they need to while growing up. You'd have heard the wails of "THINK OF THE PONIES!" from across the nation.

    I was going to say the same thing. She makes me more angry than anyone else because she should KNOW better and should be HELPING the horse rather than watching it struggle!

    Is it bad that I feel like I need a tinfoil hat just to read this thread?

    I feel your pain. I get so frustrated when I hear about groups like PETA and HSUS who raise millions of dollars and then 90% of the animals that come into their care get euthanized. It's a shame...

    Why would someone else get the stall over her if she's been there a long time? Why, if she is paying to board her horse, does she have to "share"?

    It's not about sharing. Some horses get very...

    My SO is not into horses. He grew up around them (his dad raised Arabs) so he's familiar with them, but it's just not "his thing".

    Fortunately, he does have a hobby of his own that gives him the...
