    I love him. The rider in the first video is asking to get launched and I think that video shows a ton about this horse's mind and character. I think that a rider who will let him hack out and give...

    LOL. So true about it not being a stall. I can't speak for the OP but I'm looking into one even though we only have two cats. The babies are left alone for weekends and I would feel better knowing...

    OP have you directed your friend to the standard? There are few things more irritating than having someone complain about losing when the reason is not even legitimate.

    Photos, cops, A/C, and social media if needed. A horse that is truly at a 1 may have days left. I would not stop until the horse was taken out of his custody and in the hands of someone knowledgeable...

    I work closely with an incredible program. We have an average of 60 requests to donate horses every year. If we are lucky 3 will be suitable. People seem to think they are doing us a favor by...

    I did a payment plan that was a bit like a lease to own because there was a monthly set rate. My situation did not go well but in retrospect I missed some red flags about family resources.

    I know I am preaching to the choir. Since she is open to the idea of a schoolmaster I would do some research about reputable barns within a 60-100 mile radius that have good lesson programs. I'd...

    Not a farm owner but just wanted to say that I know several on small farms who use ATVs. One rents a tractor from a neighboring property once a year to do any major work going into winter. 3 acres...

    I was conservative with x-rays and had the absolute worst case scenario where a horse who "vetted" passed away just over a year later due to something that additional x-rays would have picked up.

    I'll bite.

    If I were a parent in this situation I would (a) immediately arrange shipping to get any personal animals off property and all possessions (and eat the 30 days of board for an...

    Are you in the US by any chance? I'd be curious to know what that comes out to in US shipped

    Sending over a hug. It sounds like you are making the kindest decision. Mental decline and stress are things that are hardest because outside people often underestimate what is going on. Thank you...

    I could never take an indoor dog and let him spend his last days living outside. If health problems made it such that it was not possible for the dog to lead a normal life (playing, healthy appetite,...

    Leading through a narrow doorway is "no big deal" until it is because a horse spooks, person leading gets pinched and knocked down, and spooked horse is now loose and dragging a lead rope.

    In keeping with the OP does anyone have pictures using a bridle under a cavesson? I've never encountered a lunging cavesson with built in bit straps. Personally, that seems like a really nice...

    My failed TNR is ear-tipped. Personally, I think it gives her character but I understand that other people don't care for the tipping.

    Fancy Feast Pate is the most widely available wet food that has minimal fillers. However, it really doesn't come out to much cheaper than specialty grain-free wet food. Ordering online from a place...

    I'd pick the beginning of a month and put exactly 30 in. You can even number them if you want. I would also notify the BM and be completely transparent about your plan. If you do not run out exactly...

    Without exception the riders I know who are comfortable sawing on a mouth in warm up, using excessive crop at a refusal in the ring, etc. are 10x worse at home.

    Of course I can't prove that this...

    The only companions I foresee having are ones that start out as personal riding mounts and then retire. In theory I would be open to taking one if I ever owned property but realistically I don't know...

    Lol really? I find them deafening around the grooming area but it tends to be such a constant background noise that I tune it out. It doesn't bother me if I have a normal day that starts at 7 because...

    I honestly feel like the old ones a very hard to move. I had two beautiful ones that were both unusual widths (XW and XXW). I wasn't getting bites even at under $1k. They are a fortune new but they...
