    I ordered pre-built from Woodtex. I ordered them in less than 5 minutes, they arrived on schedule, they slid them off the truck, and the horses were in them checking them out 5 minutes later. Love...

    OMG. I've had three long-term, true love type relationships, and each one was better than the last, and looking back, I think how much fun I had going new places and having new experiences with each...

    It is not a tough situation. A presumably good vet is being compromised by drugs/alcohol. That's why it's called "under the influence " -- because the person is not themself.

    I would talk to him...

    Some folks don't find the time, at least not for a few years until their kids are in school most of the day and they're able to finagle their work schedules to allow riding time. But if the spouse...

    I love electronic billing. I don't think writing paper checks is hard either, but, electronic just seems easier to do while I'm at the computer for other things anyway.

    The other thing is that some horses are faster than others, and that's just the way it is. To ask a horse with a forward, marching walk to constantly be slowing down and circling, in order to wait...

    My understanding (very possibly very wrong) is that it's better for the horse to be given regular limited exercise on hard ground in order for their legs and feet to adjust. The idea being that if...

    So, one mom tried it. She did first herself, to make sure it wasn't obviously toxic, and then her kid. She can't tell if it had any effect on her son's fungal infection, but she reported that it was...

    I loved them. I found that I did need to add water every day or two to keep the bedding soft and fluffy; otherwise, it disintegrated into dust. But as long as I added alittle water, it was great...

    There is no easy commute from Cambridge, at least not during peak commuting times (double all driving times). :-) Also, it depends what she considers "decent," especially as far as turnout goes....

    Good care, with barn staff who actually do what the contract says, in terms of feeding, turnout, water, hay, and care, and who have an education-oriented mindset, is so hard to find that a $25...
  14. What does "mild front point reactivity" mean?

    As written on the chiropractor's report, my horse has "mild front foot indicator point reactivity." Can someone translate?

    Neither chiropractor (also a DVM) nor trainer nor horse seem too...

    Oh for heaven's sake. :-) This is the way lessons with kids work, in my experience. Either you can deal with the family dynamics, or you can't. Changing the amount charged with every variation...

    No contest; Barn B. More turnout, fewer horses (but still enough for company, horse and human), open to a better trainer, and more conscientious care, less nickel-and-diming. Your horse will...
