    For those of you that were following the thread and blog - I lost Kris on Monday.

    Excellent, really well-written - thank you!

    My boy could use some attention every few months. I'm very fortunate that he's perfectly tolerant of my "exploring". I've since acquired 3 mares, not...

    This bit has made a world of difference for my contact-avoiding TB and my monkey paws. I love the stability of the eggbutt, and will probably never go back to a loose-ring for any horse - too...

    I wish I paid as much attention to my house as I do to my barn and trailer :lol:

    For an alternative to Flylady (with an app!) Google "unfilth your habitat" ("filth" is actually another f-word...) ...

    This. Grooming is one thing. messing with their "get-away parts" is another. She still needs to learn but I've found it really helpful to understand whey they're objecting.

    Everything that Emilia said.

    Repetition, every day if you can, and be really consistent and patient in all of your handling - the cues you give, the order you do the feet in. Make sure you look...

    I swear I'd update more often if I could remember how to change the thread title! Anyway, there's now 6 months of intermittent blogging if you're inclined to catch up. I'm trying to stay away from...

    Congratulations and thanks for bringing him home! What an awful back-story...

    I agree with Janet's caution about buying a resale project if you do not have a place to keep the horse indefinitely if it does not sell

    She may have a little more "zip" with some groceries and...
  10. PSA - Half-price Wellfleet bridles at Smartpak!

    The site says they're changing the crown style so they're blowing out the current stock. The size choices are limited, but it's all styles in the line.

    They usually run in the $250-300 range, so...

    I use the clinical term "cannon crud". My gelding gets it every spring, and a little extra currying attention for a few days resolves it. The first time he had it, I tried a salicylic acid acne...

    Just a belated thanks for all your thoughts and an update. He's two weeks into ranitidine 3000mg every 8 hours - I'm fortunate that he's at home so I can give it regularly. He's slowly but surely...

    Yes, that was the study that led me to trying the alfalfa. He was kind of "poopy" on more than 1/2 lb/day but I may try increasing again once treatment is done.
  14. I've only seen positive information about...

    I've only seen positive information about alfalfa, that's why I'm trying to figure out why he's worse since I started it. Maybe it is a "crappy/less crappy" fluctuation.

    What would be a "healing"...
  15. Cribbing/presumed ulcers - can alfalfa make it worse? UPDATE slowly improving

    My 17 year old OTTB has always cribbed. Omeprazole in the winter when he's worse lessens it dramatically. This past winter I used the Abler blue pop rocks - not as stellar results as the compounded...

    I rode when I was younger, and after a 30+ year break I never dreamed that I would start riding again, let alone get my very own horse. I'm 48, I've had Cody for 4 years and I still get emotional...

    We got tired of fixing fence boards from the Clydesdale filly (2 1/2 last year) pushing through to be with the OTTB gelding (now 17). So we put them together and they have been happy clams. Her...

    I agree with the smart money on pain/ulcers. Can he specifically not have alfalfa? As bathsheba8542 mentioned, it can help with ulcers.

    Thank you, DMK! My 10-year-old OTTB mare is a late-comer to the restarting party, and I'm grateful for the insight that you've added to the process.

    Glad to hear you had a good session, OP! I...

    I love your definition - my TB gelding is a "schoolmaster" too! :lol:

    Thanks all! Just had to share - I know I'm always happy to read about other riders' successes and breakthroughs :)

    It's only been a week, but after doing some research I started both of my OTTB's on a pound/day of alfalfa cubes for ulcers. The definitely-ulcer-prone gelding is cribbing less, and they have both...

    Has anyone else reviewed other people's assignments? I just did my three and really enjoyed the varied responses. Full disclosure, my assignment was pretty mediocre - could've done better...:)

    I'm going through similar training, and I found #14 on lunging in this article was extremely helpful -

    It was a revelation to me that there's...
  25. Lunging as education for the rider (breakthrough day!)

    I've been following the thread on lunging as education for the horse. I've gone back to lunging my older OTTB for the last couple of weeks while I'm (slowly) training the other two to lunge.

    I've...
