    Well, because allegations are allegations and reporters are merely reporting that a story exists, not acting as judge/jury/executioner.

    If you go look on the thread in Menagerie about the vet that...

    My situation is a little different now, but for several years when I had my mare we boarded separately from the barn my instructor taught out of. Sometimes at busy barns, sometimes at private farms,...

    One horse.

    Nine halters.

    Still searching for the right show/trailering halter.

    My cats could not achieve world domination without a monkey to do their grunt work for them, so... no.

    My horse just did something very similar and ended up having a pretty decent abscess.

    Best guess is that it was causing him enough discomfort while building up that he used himself differently on...

    I do know of places where, 15 or 20 years ago, it was a pretty standard "new cat" treatment. Over time, attitude has shifted--and I agree with the shift. But I wouldn't be surprised if there are...

    I... what? This is (one of their) responses:



    I mean, it's honest, but... it boils down to "We only care about the welfare of the horse in as much as we have products we can sell to them to...

    I contacted Fin's breeder to find out why she picked the name she did, and I tried to pick a new name that held true to many of her motivations while also suiting me.

    In Fin's case, the name the...

    Current favorite of Fin (by Lisa Harding)

    Part of the reason I love it is the little piece of hay hanging out of the corner of his mouth--sooo typical of him.

    I had a barn owner call me once to tell me that my mare was being emotionally abusive to the barn staff and making them feel like they were not worthy to handle her, especially in jeans and a...

    He's not on a "pony wheel."

    He's on a hot walker. It's totally different.

    The neighborhood kids saw the twinkletoes and went nuts over it (it's pink, for those who were asking, since I'm still...

    Your best bet is to really focus on the ASHA papers. Someone who is really looking for a Saddlebred sport horse is going to want to show her as a Saddlebred for All Breeds most likely.

    If that's...

    Other than my cat (aka "Demon Child"), most of my animals have normal nicknames. Not that it matters, as names are just strings of syllables I speak in their general direction.

    But one day my...

    Sounds like a bustling night at a barn that was down to one ring due to weather.

    I doubt it was a plot or "barn drama." It's just life at a boarding barn.

    Also, did you ASK for 20 minutes to...

    On his first trail ride, my horse threw an ever-loving fit over a trickle of water 6" across and maybe 2" deep. Inches, not feet.

    He had to be ponied across it.

    I wish I was kidding.

    For parents with small kids, I am pretty willing to switch seats, even if I end up in a middle seat.

    For teenish kids or adults, the seat better be comparable to or better than what I'm sitting in.

    I think this is where I now take offense to you putting interwebz in quotes, which suggests some sort of dislike or disdain of my word choice.

    And that's not fair! Using interwebz makes me happy!...

    If people cannot express a contrary opinion about something, including language use, in case it will hurt another group's feelings, then we need to shut the interwebz down RIGHT NOW.

    One of my cats:

    "Out" = leave the room
    Canned food = Leave the kitchen until the other cat is done eating

    I don't see how I could possibly be in over my head.

    My cousin's neighbor's goat once at a Pony Club manual and I have driven by that farm MANY MANY times, so obviously I know what I am doing.

    I self insure. My horses are not worth much on paper so mortality is no benefit. Treatments I would want to put a horse through align with what I can afford.

    I broke out of jail and am on the run from the law, but I just want to say all this advice is HORRIBLE. It's like you don't listen to what I'm saying AT ALL.
