    Sure looks like the horse has his tongue between the bits. Yep, that would hurt but It wasn't intentional. Stuff happens.

    "We aren't allowed to treat wildlife" is BS. I have a vet here that has a soft spot for birds and he's helped (no charge) with injured birds I've found in the past. Find the right vet.

    I completely understand the desire to change a horse's name. I had a mare with the registered handle of "Grande Phinale". Ugh. Ugh, ugh, UGHHHH!

    Sincere condolences. Everyone deals with loss in different ways. Those last moments will be with you a vivid for a while, but will fade with time. Maybe months, maybe a year or two. I can still "see"...

    Wait, Gloria! You give your trimmer Lavender Oil?

    Cool.

    OP, you are now overreacting. I applaud your routine with the Fluffies, but NO ONE here is suggesting you smack 'em with the hammer!

    What you said, ladyj. It's a warning sign when one runs through several farriers in a few months. It ain't the farriers, it's the horse's behavior -- for whatever reasons they behave badly.

    I had an Arab gelding that would do this. In his Second Level tests, he learned where the canter from walk transitions were and he'd jig in happy anticipation.

    The rider times leg aids so that the rider's leg cues the horse's leg when it's in the air and stepping forward. It's pointless and frustrating (for the horse) if you kick him, say, on the left side...

    I believe unless/until he is PROVEN "guilty", he is still "innocent", and until that time, it hasn't been proven that he's violated any code of conduct. He hasn't yet been banned or suspended....

    Good one, Crone! I'd bet there's something about the horse's new situation that is causing the "twitchiness".

    Yes, they can go in a false frame -- curling BTV and BTB. They are very bouncy at the trot. Canter is not their best gait. Guard against...

    When you purchased the coat, were the vents tacked together? If so, snip the tacked stitches and it should hang fine.

    I love the coat -- I like the more traditional longer length, but it does...

    I had an OTTB who begged for my banana peels. She'd eat the fruit, too. I've offered both the fruit and peels to my Hanno gelding, and he won't have any.
