    Nope, you are not a bad mama.

    Mine are outside at this moment in -8* and expected to go lower. No blankies. Wouldn't be any point as they are furred up with a great undercoat. The blankets...

    Horses generally move into pressure unless trained to give way. I don't drive so not much help there. Bending the head and neck really doesn't do anything. Only if you have a bend throughout the...

    I find things I like, then check ebay and Amazon to see if a better price. I have never contacted a seller about lowering a price, it is what it is.

    One thing I found, Walmart has a lot of...

    I am conflicted. Besides being a horsewoman, I am also a trucker. I have met escorts and prostitutes just being in a truckstop. Also once took a tour of a brothel in Amargosa, NV (no kidding, real...

    I have almost given up on a couple of bitting pages because of the misinformation. People are now so confused about bits, they are putting bits upside down in the horses' mouth. I think the bitless...

    Sorry, didn't read all replies.

    I am a trucker, I drove by some pens the other day, out West, where usually the pens are brimming over with horses, there were very few in them. Weeds were growing...

    About the OP, because I don't have much time to read the whole shebang, the modern day TT bit is a mess. I'm sure you can get his bridle sorted but also suggesting better bits. The old time TT I...

    Post #621 is very informative. It is a reply with quote, but information nonetheless. I had to read up a bit myself. Am on limited data at this time, needed the shortcut.

    As for the blue...

    My experience has been the first 2-3 rides are fairly uneventful if you have the timing and feel. Colt, even one who has been handled, are a bit gobsmacked for the first few rides. Ride #4,...

    **I am too old to start colts anymore, out of shape, not much in the way of core strength, yada, yada. However, I still retain my colt-starting knowledge of several decades.**

    Okay, that out of...

    That's my motto. Do it the easy way, as much as you can. Unless you are doing vet stuff, as far as I can tell, horses aren't rocket science. People make it hard for whatever reason. That is why I...

    The best thing I can tell you that has worked for 99.9% of the horses I have dealt with (excluding the Parelli horses in the other posts), don't do anything emotionally. Keep a cool head. When...

    Growing up, on the family ranch, I remember seeing horses laid down after being roped. Generally, these were rank SOB's and that is how they got their first handling. But they were laid down (after...

    I meant like a flathatter or a cowboy who makes his living riding horses and appreciates a fine moving/well trained horse. Not someone who basically found the hat and calls himself that. I live out...

    From a few owners I have seen, even if you are familiar with his methods, their horses were still pain in the necks and hard to work with. I don't understand it, Pep himself used to be a pretty...

    Oh, wait, he has something going on with his fetlocks? Well, forget the working cowhorse scenario, he wouldn't hold up and be in worse shape. :(

    That would be the trick to find a real cowboy who would take a horse like this on, but sometimes a change of pace or owners, horse will change and do better. Maybe he needs a working job and...

    My thought exactly. See if you can send him to a working cow/calf operation. He'll get all those silly thoughts out of his head in a NY minute.

    I haven't read all the responses, skipped to the last page.

    All I can say is good luck with the mind blown horses. I've inadvertantly (sp?) bought a couple of them a few years ago, will never,...
