    I sold the farm and moved a year ago. We now live in a 55+ community and I board my horse about 35 minutes away. He has been at 4 different farms since last August.

    You could purchase him and he could end up being your perfect horse. But the odds are stacked against that happening.

    I think some of the dangers of hand grazing come from the handlers not paying attention. I have my attention constantly on the horse when I hand graze. No texting, maybe chatting on the phone if I...

    I haven't found a perfect pair yet. My favorites are the Kensingtons and the Cashel Crusaders. I did find I had to remove and rinse them daily or they would fall and rub the horses legs.

    Nutrition gurus- I need some advice!

    I've had my TB for 4 years and had him at my own place for the past 3.5 years. He's a bit of a hard keeper, but I've been able to adjust his feed/supplements to keep him at a good weight at home.
