    I'd probably put her on a lite feed or ration balancer too. I seriously doubt she's getting enough vitamins/minerals, even with good pasture/hay.

    But you specifically asked if anyone feeds...

    Well, in a round about way, I guess, I still answered. LOL I didn't use any search terms when I searched. :D

    LOL--well, I found our farm on Craigslist. We moved from Pennsylvania to Kentucky last year. So I would say go to the area of the country you are looking for and look through the Craigslist real...

    I agree, if you are breeding for yourself, and wouldn't mind a carbon copy of the mare herself, go for it. If you breed to a warmblood (sounds like you probably are, if you are wanting a jumper), I...

    I agree with Leland cypress, or some other sort of fast growing, thick shelter tree. Another one might be hybrid poplar screen trees like these http://www.eburgess.com/detail.asp?pid=6765&nav=tre ...

    I thought that was probably the reason but was surprised to see them still wearing them in the indoor. I guess I should have had the sound on while I was watching.

    Thanks

    Why were most of the little ponies wearing muzzles? Or something that looked like muzzles. I've never seen that. At least not in an indoor arena.

    Cute video though.

  8. TBs in sporthorse breeding--your opinions?

    There have been a good number of posts lately about TB mares, looking for stallions with a high blood percentage and such. I'm curious about what everyone thinks of TBs in Warmblood breeding...

    This summer, my 8 year old son and I spent 2 months while I was rehabbing a house, and had exactly that same situation cooking-wise. Here's some of what we did.

    I agree a lot with what FindEight said. I think he has a nice rhythm, but looks like he's either been ridden in draw reins like F8 said, or been ridden a lot from front to back (ie stiff hands, or...

    Demidq----Thank you for this idea! I think you just made my day. This is exactly what I've been trying to think up. I'm going to give it a try for when we build our barn. Our horses will only...

    I mostly just used either ivory or dawn dish soap. Like several others have said, the big keys are rinsing out the sweat and usually multiple grooming a day. Plus you have to remember that most...

    You could tie it into what you do with your horses too. For example, our farm name is Chestnut Run--because when my husband and I got together, we had 4 out of 5 horses were chestnut, and they were...

    Doesn't pertain to the OP, but just had to laugh at this.

    We have a Rottweiler named Rex. His nickname is T-Rex Demon-Dog. He's not really a Demon-Dog, but he is REALLY REALLY protective of me,...

    I've seen lots of reccomendations to keep wasp spray handy--by the door, by the bed, in the living room, in the barn. It hurts just as bad as pepper spray, AND sprays up to 20 FEET so you can stay...

    Oh, wow. No I hadn't looked into it yet, since I don't need anymore blankets until next winter. Just kind of had the idea in the back of my head since I had heard about the guarantees. That sucks....

    I'm surprised by the many people touting the Dover International blankets. I bought a bunch of them (like 8) for several different horses, and every single one of them got terrible rubs on their...

    One of the benefits to homeschooling my 8 year old--you can think of it as all homework or no homework, your choice. LOL

    When he was in public school though, I am also anti-homework. Kids need...

    With the one that I had to build a "tie" stall for, I just used 2x4s and 2x6s and plywood. I only did a half wall (4 foot tall--because that's the width of plywood) since he was going to be tied as...

    If he's running his stall that badly, I'd probably be the "meanie" and but a wall down the center to make it a standing stall. A lot of people think you have to tie them to the back wall of a tie...

    At least hair will grow.

    I had one like that a few years ago. I got a short pixie type cut. No problem there. But I told her I wanted the same hair style, but just 1/2 inch off. Well. English...
