    Can your trainer do for you what she/you did for your horse - take it back to square one? You may need to start with lessons on another horse/school horse. Get comfortable at W/T, comfortable with no...

    I have ones I got from Dover quite some time ago --- 2006 and all are still working fine, minus one that got mangled by a boarder horse who managed to destroy a lot of other things too.

    They are...

    What secretariat said: farmowner's/estate owner's (as my insurance company calls it for personal farm) plus an umbrella.

    Umbrella will also cover issues that could occur if you have teenage...

    First, not all Fjords are as you say "stiff in the body, stubborn in the mind." Is physical flexibility a bit more challenging for them, maybe yes and some can be opinionated, but when you develop a...

    The math has already been put on the table, so won't go there, but ask yourself this: would "guaranteeing" your ride on a specific horse make you a better rider in the long run or would riding an...

    Yes, I have used it for hock sores, gelding's "cannon crud," and the like and had very good luck with it. I have not had to deal with scratches per se but based on what it did for other similar type...

    Figure $10 for lunch and that's only $30 for the lesson. If the lesson brings you just one worthwhile point you can take home and try, what a bargain! Most no-name clinicians in our area get at least...

    Welcome to the world of farming! As an old friend of my late FIL said "you'll have some experiences."

    Several years ago when DS went off to a prestigious east coast engineering school he felt a...

    I feel your frustration and concern. I too have an OTTB who at one time was the poster boy for ouchy, crappy looking feet. He has been barefoot for many years now, but didn't start out that way. When...

    Is it an option to send him to live in your parents' pasture and find someone locally there to lease him? That way you would know he was safe and sane but he'd also be getting some attention and...

    Noticed that smaller horizontal crack a bit further down the hood wall. Is that superficial or is it possible that he blew something out at the cornet a few months ago and it was just small/mild so...

    Sorry, late to the party but I also do essentially do what Foxtrot said: In a quart jar: 2 cups grapes, 1 cup (or a bit less if grapes are super ripe/sweet) fill with boiling water. Process in water...

    Well back in the (oh gawd yes, I said THAT) we all did stuff like your jump photo if we offer true confessions. I have a few buried somewhere myself. I will give you big credit for having the smarts...

    Yes, a parent certainly can commit their child, it is a good case for it, and they DID TRY as best they could but consider these practicalities:

    What part can you offer a realistic solution to?

    Hey I like the juice box ides. Will have to try if the need arises.

    Have you considered 3 walls in a light blue gray with the fourth wall a dark gray or darkish gray-green. A contrasting wall will give the whole room depth and make it feel/appear larger and lighter. ...

    Another vote for The 100 Foot Journey. Saw it last night and all of us really enjoyed it; from 20 yr old DD to several much older adults. Great story, nice scenery and happy ending; wonderfully done...

    I don't know if horses eat bedstraw I don't have any experience with it in my pasture. I just had it in a past herb garden, where it didn't get too terribly invasive. It was planted in the shade...

    That bulletin makes it pretty clear. You need intensive grazing of the weed; maybe partition pasture into smaller areas with step-in posts and electric wire; good fertility management that will...

    I get my spirulina from herbalcom.com. It's a powder; a bit messy and smelly, but neither of my horses put up any fuss eating it. (Neither are picky eaters though.) I mix it in with their...

    I would have done what you did. I always call the vet, no waiting (and the call costs nothing.) Like you, I am far from care. In the best of times the nearest vet is a minimum 30 minutes away (and...
