Are his teeth okay? I think I'd check those before thinking ulcers if he's not showing other signs.
There's a lot of people, especially on Facebook, who aren't really internet savvy and don't know how to really search for something. Maybe they can plug in a basic query and get a result that helps...
You'd be far better off aiming him towards young event horse classes, then getting him out to low level events/dressage shows/show jumping when he's under saddle. If he had anything in his pedigree...
This horse is for sale as a polo stallion, and I'm curious about his dam's breeding. I don't...
Is he in more in the winter? I used to take care of a pony who would dunk hay if he was shut in for more than a few hours- no health problems, just amusing himself when he wasn't out being a terror...
I love the white eyelashes. :D
How fit is he? If you're lunging him for an hour a day, either he's too fit for the ridden work you're doing, or something hurts.
I decided not to go ahead with this. The access isn't as good as I'd have liked, and my expert thinks I can find a better patch of land to do what I want to do. It's a very cool place, just not the...
Do you have a photo of your boy's eye?
Wall eyes bother me, but not white sclera.
So very sad. Poor mares. :(
That's really cool!
Ditto carry a whip. Please wear a helmet though. Be safe.
I think this body awareness is something all the really great riders have and use. It's something that I'm working on, though my trainer says I'm not too bad at it. She actually suggested that...
Forget about him being a colt now- get him into training and see how he copes. You really need to get him out and proving himself before you think about standing him at stud.
I got myself locked in a stable this morning. No idea how, but the kick bolt latched when I closed the door. I wasn't amused and had to phone a neighbour to come and let me out. Luckily he didn't...
Hock boots are a pain in the backside. I've never found a pair yet that stay put if the horse is getting up and down. The tape sounds like a good idea.
Sink holes really scare me. Hope you're safe, OP!
Ah, but which bit of England? :winkgrin: My shoes come off as soon as I'm in the house. I have a pair of slipper boots that I wear inside.
You could try to stretch the loops on the end of the browband so you can move it up higher.
Utter rubbish. He's either misinformed, an idiot or trying to sell her something.
Maybe she doesn't have the spare cash to throw down on a new outfit.
I wear silver. It does get marked, but polishes up easily.
Can you travel him facing the other way?
Just email her and tell her that due to a change in your personal circumstances, you're no longer looking. Thank her for her time. Honest and direct is always the best way.
Talking to a horsey friend today made me think about things I used to do but don't any more.
I no longer pull manes or tails- most of my horses have hated it, it hurts my hands and I can do just...
