    Since you say "read," I'm assuming you're referring to forum threads. People tend to take their experience and extrapolate/generalize from it when posting on forums, and it's really easy to fall into...

    I'm highly amused that you think I am a bitter crone, but if that's the mindset that people assume others are posting in, I can see why my post would come across as an attack it was never meant to...

    The article says she failed as a carriage horse, not as a cart horse.

    Most people understand "cart" to mean a vehicle that carries loads of things -- coal traditionally, firewood, produce to...

    Our technical leads are some of the best and most experienced technical people we have. They are typically responsible for the day-to-day management of their team (guiding junior programmers,...

    When we had one cat on a special diet, we generally put them all on it. The only downside was cost. Logistics were certainly easier.

    However, if the older cats don't jump much any more, you can...

    The Elide fire extinguishers are interesting as well, and would have more flexibility on where they are placed (and no electricity requirements).

    I'm not sure how practical they would be for...

    I had a mare with different sinus issues, but for whatever this is worth:

    The CT scan was well worth the money in her case. They put her under for the scan and she handled that very well,...

    I have a very low threshold for "broke." Basically, the horse has to understand that its job is to respond to the human vs. toodle around doing anything it wants. So halter broke = responds to...

    Most likely it was coincidental timing, e.g. you putting on the blanket just when the days are long enough to accelerate the shedding.

    If just putting on blankets were enough to get horses to...

    I have a 6 year old half Arabian gelding.

    He tries to eat everything. Twice. Just in case he was wrong about it being inedible the first time.

    His entire goal in life is to get more treats.

    You need to bring this up with the barn manager. It's their job to make sure the horses are fed correctly, including supplements if that is something the barn offers.

    I was in a similar situation, although in my case the barn owner threatened all the horses on the property (in writing, even).

    Generally I buy stabilized pellets as they are the easiest for me to manage. Sometimes the ones marketed towards horses will have the Ca/Phos ratio balanced, IIRC, so I double check that.

    I've always balanced alfalfa with rice bran, primarily for the Ca/Phos ratios (assuming you don't get rice bran that is already balanced). That provides fat as well. I'll admit I don't know how...

    I prefer to board at barns like you describe, assuming the feedings are reasonably spaced out even if they aren't on a rigid schedule.

    But if you want a barn with a more...

    You could try Craig's List as well. Saddles sometimes get posted (I see them in Farm and Garden typically). Just take all the normal precautions given the high percentage of scammers CL attracts.
