    Get a SPRING LOADED post pounder. Home made pounters may look the same from the outside, but the spring on the inside makes a huge difference.

    To get them straight, you need a spool of rope...

    Define "best value"? Cheapest? Even if it has the oldest barn? smallest stalls? shitty pastures? fences that will blow over in a stiff breeze? Small (or no) riding ring with bad footing? Poor...

    1. $7 per bale of hay? hahahahahaha $500/ ton (which is the better way to look at it since bales differ in size from 40 - 70 pounds. The average bale I get is 50 lbs, so I get 20 bales/ton). Each...

    You know that expensive heartworm pill/treats that the vet gives you for your dog?

    Right -- the same strength of Ivermectin that is found in horse wormers. A $8 tube can last for years.

    Yes,...

    Not sure who Silver Creek Sporthorses is still standing. They have a limited stallion roster now. But since they are in Broken Arrow, Okla, it might be worth contacting them to see.

    She has every right to be a nice sport horse. Good proportions, nice shoulder, a neck that ties in high enough to make a dressage frame easy. And a long distance between the top of the hip and the...

    Having a figure 8 noseband in your tack room is a good addition. You can get one quite cheaply; you do not have to get a top of the line.

    Yes you can use it on your regular bridle; just change...

    You are describing my horse to a T. As my current trainer said, "Your horse does not have his own confidence. He needs to get it from his rider".

    He also HATES trakheners". :)

    A yearling filly with 3 years of professional training. Damn, I should break all my horses that way.

    Warmbloods for sale. There are a LOT of Canadian horses listed there. So you will have company. :)

    It is the first place I go to look (after PM'ing my friends who are breeders). BigEq is very...

    LOL. The breeders of my horses never get to wonder how they are doing. They get copies of every picture and video and emails full of updates of cute things their baby has done.

    One has moved...

    Look on ebay for "completed auctions" of Tad Coffin saddle. That will give you a very good idea of what other people are willing to pay.

    I did not know this "trick" until I was interested in a...

    I have not shipped in yours so I am not up in current pricing. But the way the airlines used to do it was to price the cost of a pallet. If you wanted a stall and a half, then only 2 horses could...

    I am a fossil, but my mother taught me NEVER to yell between rooms. At first she would say "Come here if you want to talk to me". After a while she just would not answer, so we had to go talk to...
  15. SPINOFF: Can you tell a dressage filly's potential before that of a jumper?

    Thank you for your answers to my thread about breeding a 3 year old mare.

    My friends have emphasized that no horse, no matter how well bred should have a foal before demonstrating that she, as an...

    I would have another vet look at him. And/or get someone to do flexions and video the tests so your vet can look at them. Do you know how many bad steps the horse took after he jogged off?
    I agree...

    I just Googled Ashely Madison and am amazed that cheating has become so institutionalized. I also read that Ashely Madison does not accommodate same sex couples. ---- Is this discrimination and can...

    Julie710, Does this mean you might get your horse back? If someone buys stolen goods, they do not have clear title and those buyers are out of luck. I have no idea if that is true when the horse...

    My jumper is now doing some fun cross training since my jumper trainer is gone for several weeks to shows out of state.

    I am lucky in that several people in town have huge fields with all sorts of...

    My first (and only) experience with wither shaving was 10 years ago in Ocala. I had a nice pregreenie for sale. One day my trainer told me that a trainer (and quite a BNT) was interested in him,...

    Since you cannot braid his tail, wet and wrap the tail with a wet wrap. Leave it on until right before the class, when you take it off spray with extra hold hair spray.

    That will give the...

    Yes, this is what I meant when I brought it up. An actual surgical procedure where they shave the bone to bring down the height of the withers.
