    Ohhhhh yes. Ran into this in the Friesian breed as well. Asking 5 figures for a young, unhandled horse whose main talent is dragging the people who have to turn it out from turnout and back. And...

    Yes, I left a barn (in part...) because they implemented a new no dog policy. I had a puppy at the time who was being potty trained, plus. She was not allowed to be barky, I always had her on...

    It's cold, it's awful. I'm an apartment dweller who lives on the third floor with two dogs who have to go to the dog park at least three times a day. I have to carry the mini aussie because her...

    If the horse cannot comfortably and safely handle necessary routine care, I would say the horse is bad enough to consider euthanasia without feeling awfully guilty about it.

    Well, as barn owner/manager, you need to talk to her and advise her that x amount of hay is included with board, and extra hay is extra $. Figure out how much the charge would be to feed at the...

    I'll agree- this is a management issue. If you are being billed for more hay than your horse needs (obviously as horse is overweight), the barn owner needs to work out an arrangement to get enough...

    I'm 11 years out from a fusion from T2 to L1 for scoliosis at the age of 20. I had a 54 degree single curve so was very out of balance. It was the correct thing to do.

    Personally, I love a small arena. Now, you may not be able to ride in a group, but it will teach you to ride corners and sides correctly. Mourning the sale of the family farm with a small...

    I had one and never really had any issues with it. It was a fairly cheap one but it got the job done. It was nice to not have to go digging all over to find a girth if I was riding a different...

    THIS! I get why the barn owner would say no hind shoes, but if the horse needs them, that trumps all. Can you move him someplace temporarily where you can try having him shod all around? Or...

    No kidding! After going through multiple full care board nightmares, I am glad to be where I am now. no indoor arena, and I take care of 5 (soon to be 6) other horses about half of the time (stall...

    I think she may be Foxy. Because Foxes are cute and smart. But they, too, have large ears... :-P Registering as Briar's Red Fox (or something along those lines. Briar's Scarlet Fox?)
