    It had a very faint pattern to it and I could tell by the triangular shaped head. My barn help identified it immediately and apparently has more experience with them than I do.

    I had a feeling I should have killed it. Darn. My barn isn't really all that warm though.

    I have tons of critters around including a bobcat. I never worry about them but the copperhead scares me. ...

    Baby copperhead in barn

    This was a little alarming. About a 10 inch baby copperhead slithered its way into my barn today. I have never seen one on my farm before let alone in the barn!

    My barn help came and got me. She...

    I have a horse in on rehab that was purchased in the spring. She has "kissing spines" and has had many injections in the back and SI. New owner thought the horse was okay. Old trainer thought the...

    Do keep in mind, whatever the circumstances, that all of you leaving together results in a tremendous loss of income for the barn owner. She may not be prepared for that. Give her plenty of notice so...

    No. I got a horse in for training a few years ago who had been by herself for a couple of years. She was a MESS. I think mostly from stress. Owner vowed to get her a friend when she went home.

    I think it helps to set down rules to begin with and be VERY clear about what is expected and to pay by the job not by the hour. I don't put up with complaining but I always say thanks and try to be...

    I never worry about ditches! I just ride FORWARD and never look at the thing. Pick something in the distance. It is really hard to mess up at a ditch unless it is ginormous!

    My 30-year old BUCKED like a bronc today!!

    Not sure exactly why. I need to check the saddle but it might have just been the weather.

    He is too old to do that!!!

    MMorgan--No. Because what happened is not as important as how to recognize people with bad intentions. Not all bad people are creepy either.

    Leading lessons. Teach her to lead with her head low. Walk, halt, walk, halt, turn left, turn right. It works wonders!

    Horses don't just rear. Something precedes it. Deal with that.

    Thanks Chicamuxen.

    The only decision I have made yet is to put all or most on straight MSM which is great for inflammation. I welcome the info on herbs as I don't know a lot there but I do know...
