    I had a bridle like this - made in England, Harry Dabbs.
  2. Anyone use LP Smartside INSIDE their stalls?

    I'm in the middle of building my 2-stall barn and while I'm using LP SmartSide on the exterior (50 year guarantee, fungus-resistant, very strong) I've bought 2x8 for the walls inside the stalls. My...

    Charliezmom - thanks for these! I like "5838" plan and think we might be able to alter it to work, but that's exactly what I was thinking of! I just love the way the look and feel, especially for...

    Shedrow PLANS - I need blueprints!

    I've looked high and low, but can't seem to find any GOOD shedrow plans for the baby farm. We have 4+ acres, so I'm going to stick to ONE horse with a friend (I should be so lucky if this friend...

    I keep waffling between no climb and White Lightning/Electrobraid - I really do like the White Lightning (in black!) and think I'll end up going with that. I just don't know if I should do 6 or 7...
  6. That would be WONDERFUL...can't certainly (and...

    That would be WONDERFUL...can't certainly (and happily!) wait for the right pony! THANK YOU!!

    columbus I totally agree - people are ALWAYS thinking that Clare is clunky, lazy, dull, boring, etc. to ride...until they see her go! She is, to me, the best kind of combination - very responsive...

    I just have the one "big" horse and then a mini for company - so it's unlikely there'll be kicking matches ;-) We have vinyl at the barn I own now and I HATE IT. White vinyl 6" rails - the break...

    So I have a just-turned-pro dressage rider friend (who is an absolutely LOVELY rider and has a phenomenal mare herself -REALLY phenomenal, like Pan-Am Games) - and I put Clare in training with her...

    Oh, and I said 11.2hh or smaller - ANY smaller is fine! Mini is great (as long as it's not a "micro mini" that's the same size as my Corgis :-)

    I'm in the Piedmont area - north of Charlotte, if that helps. Obviously, willing to travel to find the right one!

    I use the same - Permectrin - with our 18 stall system it works REALLY well and certainly much more easy on the wallet than the $250 we used to spend! We use two bottles for our drum and it sprays...
  13. Dogs - Electrobraid or Centaur's White Lightning?

    Getting ready to fence my "baby farm" (adjacent to our bigger, fancier boarding barn) and while price is always a factor these days, safety is still paramount. We have vinyl fencing (hate this, but...
  14. DEAD quiet small pony wanted in NC - can be ancient, ugly, or both!

    I'm looking for a first pony for my not-quite-3-year-old son and a companion for my dressage mare. I can provide vet, boarder, and any other references you require - this pony would want for nothing...

    I swore up, down, and sideways that I would NEVER EVER EVER have kids. And now I have an almost-two-year-old BOY (for heaven's sake!). I must say, for someone so darn adamant about never having...

    I totally agree with all points...and I'm the current owner of a two-year-old myself! If he so much as squeaks more than once in a restaurant, we're out the door. It's not fair to all the other...

    Weatherford - if I was single, I would SO take you up on the offer to move to IRL, it's my favorite place on the planet! My husband would miss me and I know my little man would, too! And vice...

    LOL - I'm glad others think she's beautiful, too :-) I wish they had cob classes over here! I miss showing, but while dressage used to be lots of fun in my twenties and early thirties, I can...

    Glad you think she's cute enough to even enter! I don't jump anything anymore - I have a little person who depends on me (and his dad would kill me if I got hurt!) and I like keeping as many feet on...

    33745

    Here she is - compact, solid, but moves nicely and her canter is definitely her best gait.

    33743

    Here you go! Not your traditional hunter type - but she's meant to be pretty AND super steady-eddie. She's half RID (Irish Draught) and half who knows what - the lady I got her...
  22. Anyone have a "Show Cob" as in the UK variety?

    I have a nice mare that came here from Ireland - over there and in the UK she would be ridden in "Show Cob" classes and do well, since she is not the plod type of cob, but a nice-moving,...
  23. Show Cobs - what do you show them in here in the states?

    I have a nice mare that came here from Ireland - over there and in the UK she would be ridden in "Show Cob" classes and do well, since she is not the plod type of cob, but a nice-moving,...
