    One is generally so outraged by something like this that it's hard to get around, "he should have known," even though I'm sure the trainer in question is equally appalled at what happened as we are....
  2. I figured it was probably something like that,...

    I figured it was probably something like that, but who doesn't check at least twice a day, especially in extreme weather? My horse has a full trough at all times (shared with one other horse), but...

    Oh, okay. He was only "negligent" not intentionally cruel. So that's okay. /sarcasm/

    I think there actually IS a buckskin registry, for what it's worth. Quarter pony might also be a possibility. I don't know about AWB/AWS. I think you have to know who at least one parent is for...

    Late teenage gal went out on her Mom's old horse, early 20s. Accompanied by neighbor (Adult) on lovely old horse around 30 (basically healthy, but arthritic, good for light trail and arena work)! ...

    Assuming it's a safe route, sounds fine to me. When I was eventing preliminary and needed a really fit horse, I often hacked about 6 miles or so to schooling shows to get some jump classes, then...

    They do NOT buck because of the bucking strap (flank strap). Some keep bucking after the rider is off, others keep bucking. What the flank strap DOES do is affect the STYLE of their bucking - the...

    This^. Sounds like YO is a big strong guy who has let his horses get away with murder because HE is big enough to muscle them around. You are lucky not to have been injured, and if you were not...

    True enough. And I don't care if someone uses that term, but... it does sound (to me) slight affected, but, heck, not really my problem, and I certainly wouldn't SAY as much to someone who used the...

    ^This. I'm past retirement age and have owned or leased (1st horse was a lease) only seven horses over that time, though I've interacted with many others. Once I buy a horse, I tend to hang on to...
  11. Yes, but Appy roans will hold their "Appy"...

    Yes, but Appy roans will hold their "Appy" markings and won't loose them to a "roaning" pattern the way they WILL lose their spots to a greying gene, as did that offspring of a Gray QH/Palomino Appy....
  12. Appies don't "gray" as they age unless they have...

    Appies don't "gray" as they age unless they have a grey parent (which, while it happens due to the occasional breeding of an Appy to a grey QH, is a highly stupid thing to do with an Appy). Some do,...

    My horse is at a boarding barn. He also has excellent ground manners. If I change farriers (last time was 6.5 years ago), I'm there for the first time farrier works with horse. After that - I...

    I won a preliminary horse trial on a horse blind in one eye (eventually had to have it removed - glaucoma). He lost sight in it when he was 17. He coped just fine. Unless he was a very spooky...

    Meh. All the remakes have to f**k around with the original. Even the earlier and much better version of Flicka (a CHESTNUT) departed quite a bit from its source (e.g., Ken's brother was totally...

    I have to think that Appies are the WORST candidates for the Pepperoni method. I know my first two Appies (heavily Foundation bred), would have ignored the Peps, or schooled THEM. You didn't mess...

    I think The Bay Lady may have been a semi-documentary about a noted barrel racer? My mind blanks on her name right now, but she was still barrel racing a few years back on a BIG QH named "Orange...

    There is a - Disney, I think - movie that I recall (I'm oooooold), perhaps "So Dear to my Heart"? or maybe Song of the South? that had a harness horse part to it - supposed to be Dan Patch, I...

    Yeah, food now, keeping loading, eventually no food, at least not as a bribe. I pretty much keep hay in the trailer, but from initially standing and staring, then loading with a pat on the butt, my...

    One I cannot find on DVD, and I believe it was a TV movie, is "Stormy," about a TB born too late in the year to race who "struggles to find his place" and ends up as a polo pony.

    Well, as annoyed/amused as I can be by the Pepperonis and their followers, I have to say they aren't the only weirdos out there. We had a gal at our barn much enamored of clicker training. But she...

    Don't know about where Wiley is today, but you do know that other than the actual footage after Wiley got the horse, the rest of that movie is pure Disney fiction? He was bred to be a jumper, by a...

    I was in a van pool at the time. If you'll remember, it was the day of the first SF home game of the World Series at Candlestick. Several of my fellow van pool members, including me, were fiddling...

    Northern Contra Costa County here. Pretty strong looooong rolling shock by the time it reached here. I woke and just lay there thinking, "Ummm....hope this stops soon, or I may have to get up." I...

    Was JG Appaloosas in PA no longer in operation when you were last looking, because there horses were certainly built for the sport horse disciplines?
