    Yes... somehow people haven't figured out yet that I don't own a horse because I can't afford board and upkeep on one. Not because there's any shortage of free horses. And that if I was going to get...

    They hold up great under normal use but can definitely break if necessary. I was at a barn for a long time that turned out in Quillin halters (the ones sold as turnout halters) and have seen them...

    I love Quillin halters too. You can get a double buckle crown and an adjustable chin which may make sizing easier.

    Either the tattoo is very faded, you are seeing lip mottling that is not a tattoo at all, or (possible but not super likely) someone had a personal tattoo done for ID purposes that is not connected...

    Fly sheet does not equal blanket, at least in my vocabulary. (Neither does rain/turnout sheet, cooler, or anything else without fill.) It makes more sense, I guess, if you are considering any and all...

    Have you been riding only your own horse since the time that you got him? The fear could come just from the fact that you are so used to and confident on this one horse that your mind worries what it...

    I still see a lot of zebra and leopard out there, often combined with pink/purple/blue.

    I've seen things in various colored camo, and skulls were also big for a while. Those might appeal more to...

    You need to upload it *somewhere* whether that's personal webspace or some kind of service and then post a link. A dropbox folder would work okay.

    Are they being given at AM and PM feedings both on some days, when they should only be once per day? I would try labeling each one with the day of the month and even writing AM or PM (whichever it is...

    A chestnut could be carrying agouti even if there hasn't been a bay in the family for generations. (Exception: a chestnut with two black parents you would know doesn't have agouti.) To be safe go...

    Coach #2 sounds better to me... like she's giving better instruction, you are progressing more, and she has access to more appropriate horses for you. The better instruction may be reflected in the...

    The writer appeared to be going for alliteration there and probably has no idea of the difference between a stallion and a gelding (or maybe even a stallion and a mare.)

    I think a backpack would probably be best if you might have to carry it a longer distance, so it's not a lot of weight on your hands or across one shoulder.

    I take my clothes to work in a duffle...

    You paid for the right to use your stall for 30 days, but chose not to use all of your 30 days. You could have, but didn't. It would be very, very unusual for a place to pro-rate the stall,...

    Yes, I knew someone with a walker who sent her horse out for training to work on his gaits. He was very pacey as well and came back much nicer.

    It does work. I use it on myself for certain types of wounds, especially when you have something that just doesn't seem like it wants to heal. The sugardine usually takes care of it in a day or two.

    Look at u-channel flashing, similar but not exactly what you describe, but you could probably make it work. A metal fabricator could probably make something exactly to your specifications.
