    To trade trailers, or no?

    I have a 5.4 V8 F-350, so am limited in how much I can pull. The plan is to upgrade to a diesel in the next year or two.

    I have a 2013 Circle J aluminum over steel 2 horse gooseneck. Great...

    Mine live outside 24/7 but only have 100 x 200 fields. Still enough room for a canter.

    Or I should say that they did live on 100x 200, now two of the three are on small pen rest.

    Some of the...

    The right hip sits a bit lower now/has less muscle on top by a bit. This has come up since it started, and I think is a symptom of whatever has been going on all this time. Otherwise he is...

    Unfortunately, we're only on this property for 3 more years, not looking to dump a lot of money into the footing. And most people here don't want the compacted footing I want -- I'm pretty much the...

    Precisely why we didn't block the first two visits. First visit it was so subtle we had to make him worse. Second visit he seemed to flex positive (after a few tries) on the fetlock. Xrays showed...

    Horse was power floated in August, rechecked/hand float this spring.

    Post #14, we did do nerve blocks. Did the right hind early in May but had wishy washy results. Only just blocked the hip this trip. We are 4 visits and about 12 hours of diagnostics in.

    Oh brother Nancy! And I can only imagine how hot it was... No common sense or basic animal husbandry!

    (And yes, I'm just across the 24 from you. Same distance from Kamloops as you, just different...

    hmmm.. I think I want my farrier considering how my horse stands on and weights each foot.... when they're vertical ;)

    I think people on the phone in public washrooms is so rude. To the person on the other end of the phone, and to the other patrons trying to use the washroom.

    I just flush. Repeatedly. ;)

    Ignorance is bliss

    I know we are all familiar with how ignorance is bliss in the horse world. Lately, I've had a wicked string of bad luck as far as soundness goes in my herd. I have good fencing, a good farrier (and...

    Saw the vetS today. Horse presented the same, subtle right hip drop, but now has a sore right front as well! Not believed to be compensatory, as it's on the same side, not diagonal pair. Blocked...

    I may be flamed for this, but I don't think euthanasia is ever a "wrong" answer. Even if it's for reasons many people can't justify, it ensures a swift end where they never fall into the wrong...

    I'm finding yard/lawn rollers that you fill with water for weight, is that what you're referring to? Or a roller that also waters? THAT would be ideal as I'd love to water my footing too, but not...

    I've got two fluffies - one indoor and one outdoor. The indoor kitty has always sucked a grooming, and we found her much happier after she started getting clipped. She loved how much she could feel...

    I also love the renegades. Didn't find them bulky at all. In the past, I had boa boots, and found them bulky and hard to get on and off. The rens are easy!

    Ask for homework.

    Also, it's less about the specific exercises you repeat from lessons, and more about *how* you ride them. From each lesson, try to take away a few key things that the instructor...

    Horse had his teeth done 3 months ago, and last August when I purchased him (he wasn't really due this spring, but the others were seen so he got inspected too).

    Using an independent fitter will void many saddle warranties, including Custom (I believe, according to my fitter). This is not unique to just Schleese, and there are many good independent fitters. ...

    I'd seed, personally. I know it's already late May but we had an early spring. Irrigate if you don't get sufficient rains.

    Also, let it rest a full season, so you get good grass roots...
