    Could we please recall the concept of filters? Ie, filter what is put on bulletin boards. COTH is not your BFF. COTH is not your confidante. And, I'm going out on a limb and guessing that your...

    Nope, it's not just you. Three days, and I am grouchy, short-tempered, and irritable. So is my horse. If it's been even more than that, I'm surprised that sparks aren't shooting off both of us as...

    I am casually looking at Oregon, though not right on the coast. In 10 years or so, I'll be looking for at least 50 acres, access to trails, enough rain for pasture but not too much rain, rarely over...

    Seriously, I wish people would stop photoshopping their horse pictures. Simkie, really. Who do you think you are kidding with that picture? I don't remember that color existing in nature. The earth...

    Well, if you're not planning on any legal action, I still don't see why you don't just tell us. We're all clear that you are saying it was probably an isolated event. You're not libeling the...

    What are your thoughts on telling us what the product was so we can educate ourselves if this happens to another horse?

    Well, every horse is different, but "circling" just amped my horse up more, and if I turned her away from the barn to do more work, that was just awesome as far as she was concerned; she was happy to...

    I do not understand the shameful mocking of bling. There is never too much bling. More bling is better than less bling. Bling is the new black. Adding bling will improve a person's riding and a...

    Can you trailer to the farrier? If he does your friends' horses, maybe you could make it a social event to bring your horse over when they're having their horses' feet done.
