    I too, use a human hair brush. I use one with plastic bristles set in a flexible rubbery base. It helps me get the tangles out without pulling out too much hair. I use a little Cowboy Magic on the...

    Thanks Sidesaddlerider! The boots are very comfortable, so I don't mind using them for practice, but I think they'll polish up nicely next fall, too.

    I picked up a pair of brown dress boots on eBay (Marlboroughs, an English brand). I plan to use them just for hacking about, but I bet some hunts would allow them for ratcatcher.

    Newmarket Dehners! By the measurements, too small for me. besides, as a beginning foxhunter, I think showing up in flashy newmarket boots would be a bit much. But someone will love them:...

    If you were hunting a territory with vast open spaces and long, long gallops, maybe, But otherwise no. Sound mind and sure footedness are far more important than height. My pony is just under 14.1....

    "How high do you jump on average? Are their hunt groups that keep jumps low? "
    I don't generally jump and I ride with the hilltoppers, so I can't tell you how high the jumps are. I can say that each...

    So sorry for your loss {{{hugs}}} You did the right thing as soon as you knew the facts. And I'm sure it hurts doubly, as you are grieving for yourself and for your daughter. Fortunately children do...

    This seller has a bunch of vintage hunt boots that seem to be in good condition. I'm sharing the link to just one here, but you can search the seller's other listings to see the rest:...

    As Paula said, the pocket hose "the hose that grows". We attached two of them together and could reach most of our paddocks easily. They drain far more easily than regular hoses and they're easy to...

    I didn't know, but it's a grass, so it's not surprising. In fact, in another post going on here in Off Course someone describes their pony eating bamboo, so I guess I had heard it before.

    You're doing just fine. And using "we" makes perfect sense because everything you do with your horse is a partnership.
    There are 6-7 billion people in the world, enough to supply you with...

    Go for it! I'm about 5'5" and I ride a pony that's just under 14.1. She's a sturdy QH type, so she has no trouble carrying me around.

    I've had very good luck finding boots on eBay, but it does require patience. As for rust breeches, it appears that everyone who has a pair for sale wears (or wore :) ) a size 26. Unfortunately, I...

    Great thread! I too have had great luck on eBay. I've coats for $50 and $70, a shirt for $25, dress boots for under $100 and even hard to find things like string gloves. It does help to be a common...

    The snow didn't look too deep. And it's only deep for the first couple of horses :) I used to have a pretty hot mare, and I liked riding her in deep snow. The hard work of wading through the snow...

    My waterproof blankets have been waterproof. However, you said you had the blanket hanging over a fence, so it's entirely possible that the lining got damp just from the moisture in the air, or from...

    Rabies does not go away in the winter, but as you've found in your research, it's very unlikely in squirrels. It's very likely that he's reacting to the reflection in the glass. They are the cutest...

    Heat gun (looks like a hairdryer but much more powerful) and a metal shovel. Heat up the shovel, it should slide under the poop. If you use hot water, put plenty of salt in it so it won't freeze...

    I agree! I've had the luxury of full board, I've done all the work of rough board and now I have a co-op situation. So, having been the one with a pick-axe chopping ice in a frozen tank I can truly...

    Perhaps the mirror on the short end captures the mirror on the long end. So your guy is seeing the evil horse hanging out around his beautiful friend and he gets jealous :)

    I lived that life for the last 10 years. Even with hard ground, I included a little bit of trotting. I figured if she can manage to run around like a maniac on hard ground when I'm off her back,...

    I don't have an answer for you, but as Jawa said, it's best to park the trailer on a dry surface. For my trailer I purchased a stall mat and cut it in half and I park the tires on that.

    As everyone else said, sometimes you have to just do it. If you're getting a trailer from a dealer they may have someone you can hire to give you a morning's worth of lessons.
