    I really love it especially for some of the tb's that I have gotten in that are super tough in the mouths and tight over the back. It allows them to loosen and learn to use their parts correctly. I...

    I always try to remind people the horse world is a small world. Failed vettings are not necessarily failed vettings. Like bfen said some vet for resale/upper levels and can't accept anything but...

    That has happened to me. Are you using the 5 in 1 blades? There is a little piece in there that snaps off and once broken the blades won't stay on. I have glued it back with success. I do LOVE those...

    Yes, I have a hard time believing anyone who says all their horses vet absolutely clean. I sure have had some who have suprises on xrays. Impossible to have xray vision for sure. The hardest thing...

    I disagree that Ottb's don't make sense in terms of retraining profit but you really have to buy those that are truly special so that with 6 months on them you are going to be making nice profit. The...

    I guess it all depends on what your prices have been in the first place. I have been reselling Tb's for a long time. Most of the years, I retrained and resold working with CANTER MA horses and we...

    New Bolton. Cost are comparable to anywhere else and you have everything you need right there in terms of tools to diagnois anything that could be found.

    I am 5'5" and I ride in a several county high forward flap saddles but I have short legs (just ride with short stirrups hence need for forward flap). You would need a low forward flap. I love the...

    I have had 8 that I have retrained so far and I LOVE them! I now seek them out because I just think they are so cool. I haven't had any issues retraining them and I find them easier than most. They...

    I have several very nice horses available and prices flexible as winter is coming :)

    Mel- that is what I was thinking...everyone loves her but she is just a bit too far away from the action and there aren't many horses in this particular area to look at for sale. I don't do much...

    I specialize in selling nice ottb's but I bought a nice TB cross last year. She is a 5yr and quite attractive but is a mare :) I have her with a really good local trainer who has been doing a super...

    That is a very odd race record and would make me do quite a bit of digging.

    Honestly, it is whatever is in your comfort level. Horses with clean xrays can be lame and horses with xrays that have issues can be sound. I just bought three horses out of their breeders field and...

    I wouldn't expect you to pay for the shoes but I would ask the seller. The ground has been super duper hard this year and TB feet have suffered. The three that I bought have excellent feet in terms...

    ^ I disagree with that when it comes to TB feet. I just went and bought 3 tb's out of the field who had been turned out barefoot for a year if not more (sound but slow on breeder's farm) and each one...

    Looks like a fairly standard TB type of back to me. The english saddles tend to have a wider gullet and shorter points which fits better. Most of my Tb's built like this go in variations of county...

    I think most are how they are and that sort of shocks people. I just showed a horse this weekend that is a 4yr and is 30 days post track to a lovely lady who said if I didn't tell her she would never...

    Will also add that horses that are unsound (this horse appears to have a pretty big ankle) are at risk for this happening to them. The h/j barn likely thought they would give him a go and see how...
