    This thread seems like a disconnect with reality, honestly. I wonder how many of you have successfully sold sub-16 hand horses for the same price you would if they were 16.2? It is great to hear...

    I have a hot TB and do things on a bit of a budget. I order plain Magnesium Oxide from Uckele, it is much cheaper than Quiessence or any of the "calming supplements." It really does make a...

    I think the ad rocks (it is awesome he is wearing a helmet) but the tutu pics make me wish I could buy a horse from them. They are adorable!

    No ad is going to sell someone on a stallion, I hope. ...

    I would try the bone scan if he's otherwise fine. I had one of these in jumper form and it turned out the be an SI issue that resolved completely after injections. Never stopped again. I found out...

    I am in northern IN and my water lines only need to be down four feet. When I lived in WV the frost line was three feet. Call your extension agent before you start digging to kingdom come.

    Yeah, I have been in barns that really stink. I don't like my barn to smell like that. When I walk in my barn, it better smell fresh, or "they" (um, I) am not doing a good job. Shavings with a...

    This is what BOs are for, to help new horse owners distinguish between "time to call the vet" and "it's just a flesh wound, don't worry!" It is ultimately the horse owner's decision, of course, but...

    So sorry, OP. I would be ticked and have been upset when a vet didn't put my dog down until I practically had to beg for it. It made a bad situation feel so much worse. I also have a longstanding...

    Can't Help Falling made me laugh, it sounds like something I would not want to name an event horse! I would think that perhaps it should take up dressage.

    I think Fools Rush In is cute and...

    I really love my Smith Worthington saddles. They have great balance and last forever. One of mine is 20 years old and I am still using it regularly, it looks great except I replaced the billets...

    I put in Nelsons this fall outside and while expensive, they are one of the best investments I have made recently work-wise. No breaking ice, nice warm water for the horses -- they make a beeline...

    When I was 9 and knew nothing about horses my parents, who also knew nothing about horses, bought a "kid-safe" quarter horse for my brother from a local horse scion. It had wobbler's and she knew...

    Joseph Sterling bridles are really nice for the money and are nice Sedgwick leather and stitching. I also like those Courbette bridles from Horseloverz. I think either of those options are...

    I would suggest a gradual repayment too, a lump sum is unfair and I wouldn't expect it (as management-side). Unless this is a very high wage-earner there aren't very many people who can just hand...

    Yes, people need to be aware that you often can't tell by looking at a helmet that it has had a hit. The one where my horse stepped on my head the helmet looked fine from the outside because the...

    I wear one most of the time when I ride at home alone. I mean, why not? I have a Tipperary, it's comfortable and if it means I don't get quite as squished in some horsey disaster, then it's an...

    I haven't had any problems, mine last for years. The only holes mine have are from snags doing farm maintenance, not riding! Unless riding the tractor counts.

    I had a serious fall when I was 18. The horse either stepped on my head or kicked me in the head. My helmet had a hoof-shaped divot and was cracked through in three places out from it. I had short...

    I saw one and thought it was nice but very wide. It would swamp my diminutive TBs. But it did look well made and I would consider one if I had a horse with girthing issues and I wanted something...
