    Yeah, like ours. Remember all the 1940-50s cowboy movies where they broke horses just like that? Admittedly it was usually in a corral, at least for Hollywood purposes, but America used to celebrate...

    have you tried just turning it to "warm" and leaving it alone all day? Mine has two settings. "High" boils. "warm" doesn't"

    I suspect any end days that happen will have more to do with the takeover of news outlets and/or financial systems through cyber warfare. Or possibly economic warfare aimed at weakening a countries...

    DH is seriously addicted to his cigarettes. We did the Chantix thing a few years ago and he was clean for almost 2 years, then a boarder got him smoking again. We deal with it by (a) building a...

    Think of it as the equivalent of Grand Prix jumping. Lots of horses jump, very few jump like that. Or perhaps the Derby. Very few Thoroughbreds have the chops to run a race like that, but there are...

    Actually Largo is the fastest gait, equivalent to the canter on a trotting horse and yup, even at speed the Paso should maintain an even 4-beat gait.

    As far as nervousness goes, there is a range...

    WCPorter -- Paso Finos are travelling horses. They were bred to travel long distances, to be sure-footed and thrifty (i.e. easy keepers) and to be hardy and quite strong for their size. I've never...

    Paso people make distinctions in the modality of the horses. They are all travelling in a 4 beat gait, but the ones with the very quick feet and very little forward motion like the one in that video...

    I've been on pretty much the same journey as you, OP, albeit for longer. My first GSD was an Amish puppy I bought straight from the farm. She was faulty all over and amazingly noble. I have no idea...

    You know, I looked at that DreamyPuppy website and all I could think was, imagine if the SPCA could get the same marketing spin on the rescued dogs PLUS make people feel good about rescuing, all for...

    I planted a row of red twig dogwoods. They get to be about 10 feet tall, look perfectly ordinary in the summer under their green leaves, but look amazing in the winter, particularly against snow. Not...

    ^^This. Our trail Pasos are 13.3-14.0 hands and regularly wear out other larger breeds. Although we do let the taller riders go first to clear out the spiderwebs. :D

    Plus to someone elses point,...

    Agreed, and that's exactly what I'm attempting to do. It's been one polar vortex after another here and we don't have an indoor (do have a covered round pen) the groundwork and some saddle work was...

    Not a long shot, Patti it's actually a smart question. We already figured out this one gets hotsie-totsie on grain so she gets hay and hay only. The rest of our Pasos (show horses, mostly) get an...

    We saw the challenge ride at the MD Expo -- there was a wide variety of competencies demonstrated. :) You will be fine. Get there early and see if there is an opportunity to do a warm up pass (or at...

    What part of NC are you in Mirage? We're in Virginia but we breed and train Pasos, so we have friends all over the place. We're down at the Asheville Paso show every year, kids and ponies in tow. :)...

    We get a lot of folks buying Paso Finos who have hip issues. A client told me that they don't 'rock' (I assume she meant pace) the way some other gaited breeds do so it was easier on her hip. The...

    Mail order is even worse. I have a kid on this same medication. I have no idea how OP is getting a 90 days supply -- the doc is bending the rules apparently because you are only supposed to get...

    GMP she's not spooky, just... opinionated. She'll happily lead the group past really scary and silly stuff, as long as it's HER idea. But I think the cowboy is the ticket. DH likes spicey horses and...

    yeah, that's what I figured. So you suggest more of the same and patience, correct? That's what I have planned, just looking to see if there are other things I might not be thinking of since it's...

    Well if it's bucking it's the RM side -- I've known some AWESOME RM buckers, but Paso bucks are so wimpy it's hard to know what is going on LOL. They are better at airs above ground and the art of...

    Cripes. Perhaps Mrs Robinson got a little too deep into the Xanax before she went shopping and was having a private party? Mom sounds like a whack job to me.
  25. Conditioning the super-smart, super-stamina'd, super-stubborn horse?

    So... I have a trail Paso. She has been doing gentle, short (mostly walking) trail rides for a little over a year. She's just turned 5, so is getting to the age where I can ask a little more of her....
