    Well, my mare has held her tail to one side since I bought her. Chiropractic treatment helps, but there is something permanent there. It's just part of who she is. I will say that it's declined...

    I am not as good about it as I should be, but certainly if the mare leaves a pile on any narrow trail, I'll hop off and kick it aside, if I haven't managed to get her to swing her butt sideways off...

    It has caught on in some places. Boston has a few. They still take insurance for the most part, but charge an up-front annual fee (usually between $1500 and $5000) which allows them to see fewer...

    Yes, go talk to a guidance counselor. Get together your transcripts (even if you've already sent them to the school) and the syllabi for all the classes you have taken so you can back up your...

    Minus the dozen kids, that's the situation I'm in with my new filly, who lives in Michigan. The breeder is someone I trust 100% to give her a good start in life, and it is inexpensive enough to keep...

    It's very, very hot during the summer, up to 120 degrees. It cools down quite a lot at night.

    For those not familiar with the city, by "downtown" they don't mean the Strip or near any of the...

    It's almost like there are 2 breeds of Morgans, the "old style" sensible ones and the hot ones -- though I think there have always been hot ones. The former tend not to have certain horses in their...

    exvet, thanks for posting those videos. Lovely, lovely Cobs. It was a breed I thought of when I was shopping in 2008, but I think the Morgan personality suits me better.

    Here is this year's plan. Over time, I have gone from types of veggies to particular strains. My go-to source is Territorial Seed.

    From seed, direct-sowed (already started with the peas, beets,...

    Agree with others... the eventing term "packer" would be more appropriate.

    My mare is *exactly* like that. She is the horse who is constantly keeping an eye out for bears (which means she can be a good babysitter for a nervous horse, because she'll "take care of them.")...

    Way too much hay unless your flakes are tiny. Just for comparison's sake, my 900 pound Morgan mare in moderate work gets about 18 pounds of hay per day, and 2 quarts of a low-starch pelleted feed. ...

    HOT electric on all of the fence boards, maybe even a 2-strand perimeter a few feet inside the fences of her paddock -- installed safely of course -- so she'll get "bit" if she gets anywhere near the...

    I have done exactly the same thing ... BUT. If someone calls 911, and you don't have that DNR document in your hands, it doesn't mean squat.

    There are people who get "DNR" tattooed on an ankle...

    DH and I solved it by having a potluck wedding at our house. We were far from the first in our social circle to do it this way. Ended up with 175 people and a wonderful time.

    Oh yes there is. Would have been dead at 11 without modern medical treatment for Type 1 diabetes, if I hadn't died of scarlet fever or a kidney infection at 7.

    Almost *everyone* can say that. ...

    There are a few people who, when they post, I just roll my eyes. Very strongly opinionated, and the way they state things makes it obvious they *don't* want a discussion and if you open yourself to...

    Some horses just. need. shoes. I'm happy the solution was this simple.

    Enjoy your new horse :)

    This all pertains to the season only. No need for any of this in the winter, and we don't normally have a lot of flies until May-ish.

    I had good luck last year with Farnam's Biting Fly repellent....

    I do think that online, people say and do things they wouldn't even think about doing IRL. Anonymity is a nice little curtain to hide behind, though like a curtain, it's not very strong.
