    This is what my vet said about MSM. Since I've taken these DSLD horses on as rescues and just to provide them with a nice retirement home, I haven't really "tried" all that hard with supplements,...

    You might try taking her off the hay and transition her to "old man mash." Basically grass hay pellets, soaked beet pulp and some prebiotics and probiotics --- it should be a mash and it should be...

    I have a DSLD horse, a crippled, ancient rescued former broodmare who's about 26 now. Her hind fetlocks are severely dropped and her hind suspensories are basically completely ruptured/useless. That...

    You are smart to think ahead.

    I run a small company and I sure would LOVE to find someone who could come on site to do my books 1 day/week. What about turning yourself into a bookkeeping service?...

    Your horse. Your responsibility. Don't expect him to "pull his weight" with your hobby.

    This can be a deal killer. Tread carefully. My marriage of 18 years ended in part because my non horsey...

    I built mine at 90x160, which was the biggest I could afford. I agree with those who say to build it as big as you can. I had initially wanted a 100x200 arena but the extra square feet really pushed...

    4Martini, I guess I wished they would pursue a conversation beyond the initial "home with my kids" statement. Anything. "What do you think about X?" is always a good start. I was so lonely for adult...

    I handle HR and payroll at my company and this can happen. Ask somebody to sit down with you and do a side-by-side comparison of your payroll before and after your raise so you can see why your...

    I have walked both sides of this.

    I left an exciting executive career to be a SAHM for 15 years. The "cocktail party" questions were always the ones that got me. Somebody would ask me "what do...

    I've seen one of these in real life. It's a straight load. This is much like many of the older straight loads, it's just way too small for horses to ride comfortably for long. The woman I met who...

    I adopted a horse with really bad knees. I didn't ride him, but what worked best for him was joint injections as needed (about every 8-9 months is what he would require) and 24/7 turnout (it was...
