    I don't bed mine and the floors are screenings between wood slats so drain well. Mine don't lay down in the shed as they rather lay down in the grass or sand. They do stand in there during the heat...

    You have been at this facility for approximately three months. Within that time have you had any discussions with the owners about the care? It doesn't sound like it. You cannot just skip out on...

    My barn was hit by lightning about 7 years ago. I was inside the barn feeding at the time and it was scary! Afterwards I did a ton of research about lightning rods and realized that in my area (NC,...

    Before breeding I would take her to an inspection with whatever registry you choose (I recommend either AHS or GOV as they tend to be the most reputable...let the debates begin:)). You will need her...

    I hate to always sound like a Debbie Downer! However, when looking at working at another training facility you can be there to build your own RESUME, but you are NOT there to build your own...

    Her symptoms have been very stiff/ unable to bend to the right for a bit now. Then it progressed to her whole body being stiff/ unable to track underneath herself. I also noticed she began tripping...

    IMHO you are too all over the place...lesson horses, training horses, sale horses, rehab horses. Facilities that are successful tend to have a focus. With all your vet experience and depending on...

    I have owned my own small animal hospital for 9 years now so have gotten through the learning curve of small business ownership. I also own my own personal farm (no boarders) so understand the work...

    I cannot speak for breed show classes, but at Hanoverian inspections capped hocks are not considered anything but cosmetic. They have no bearing on soundness or are a sign of conformational defect. ...

    I wish a sheep would wander to my farm! I want sheep but can't rationally buy one...but if one just showed up, well problem solved. Then to have one magically show up that fits right in with the...

    Most importantly you need to have a veterinary pre-purchase exam with radiographs done. The vet will be the best person to help you decide on longevity of soundness. Long term toe-out conformation...

    I must respectively disagree and even rewatched the video after reading your post. First, I never tie a foal. IMO that is a recipe for disaster. I also do not force the holding of a foal leg...

    I have a mare that poops along fence lines in 4 or 5 discreet sections. My neighbor asked me why I was making manure piles along the fence lines and I told her I wasn't, that is just how she poops! ...
