    Oooh, excellent idea! And since I think they have to be unaltered to be halal, all those horned bucks would probably qualify.

    I had a gelding who was N/H, so he didn't have full blown episodes, but if you tried to make him stand still while you were mounted, he'd start with this weird jerky flinging leg twitch. And if you...

    Ugh, it's so annoying when people do that. One of my friends who used to have a horse is the biggest offender. And she also kept trying to suggest stallions for my mare with a bone cyst, who I don't...

    Truth. Seems like it's exponentially more likely to happen under those conditions.

    My pony has one of the velcro releases on his muzzle, and he's so good at pulling it apart that I eventually duct...

    I'm not really sure exactly which features would make a shed from here comparable, but it looks like it could be in the $7500 range by the time all the options are added in:...

    Everything! Well, at least it feels that way. We're moving from the 7 acres we're on now to a new 36 acre parcel with nothing on it. So far we have a driveway and a drain field, we've contracted to...
  7. Poll: I have one currently, and have taken in a few in...

    I have one currently, and have taken in a few in the past as well. As some people mentioned, there are times when I have enough riding horses going to keep me busy, but someone needs a buddy. There...

    One of my mares is a complete raging slut in the pasture when she's in heat, but the second you put her halter on, she's all business. The only difference under saddle is that she'll call to her...

    That was my first thought as well.

    I did the same thing a few years ago. Didn't even get on the horse, just got back in my car and left.
  11. Generally speaking, I try to keep all my horses...

    Generally speaking, I try to keep all my horses in a state that is just past ideal in the direction that is opposite their natural tendancy. That means that I try to keep my super easy keepers a...

    I'm a hoarder. One rideable horse, one harness, 13 saddles, at least half a dozen bridles, and a plethora of bits and girths. Yeah, I keep almost every piece of tack I've ever owned. :lol:

    While I have owned (and even enjoyed riding) a couple of really badly herd bound horses in the past, if I were shopping right now I'd try to avoid it. Mostly because my horses are at home, so the...

    I think I'd put in radiant heat flooring. Our floors are so cold this year that I actually got chillblains on my toes in the house . :eek:

    I don't know anyone around here that has a hay hut or anything similiar, but I've seen and heard about a ton of injuries related to the metal round bale feeders. And miraculously, one of my friends...

    It's 5 degrees here now, but the sun is shining and the wind isn't bad right now, so it was actually pretty tolerable outside. And my horses have been hanging out in the middle of the field instead...

    Agreed. I tried to console myself with the fact that at least the high temps weren't in the negatives, but the wind today was pretty brutal.

    I'm in the "never" group as well.

    While I wouldn't completely rule out the possibility of ever having it done, I've never felt the need for any of my own horses (past or present), and I don't...

    While the mare's udder will be pretty full and uncomfortable at first, she will dry up a lot faster if you take the foal off completely.

    One other thing to consider, depending on your location, is...

    I used to have a tri-colored rough coated Collie. His registered name was Knightwoods Jet, and we called him Jet. Best dog ever.

    Your new pup is darling, and I'm sure you'll enjoy him no matter...

    That's how I feel as well, so I have them. Maybe the horses need them for their safety, maybe not, but I sure as hell need them in order to sleep well at night. :winkgrin:

    Ugh, I was the same way, and I hated it. Thankfully my life was pretty routine while I was on it, because I'd be driving somewhere and then suddenly have absolutely no idea where I was. Since I...

    IME, they stay in place really well. When I had one I was using regularly, I always put it on loose and then tightened it once it was on my head, so I was moving the dial around pretty often. No...
