    We used CMB, crushed misc. base which is a combo of asphalt chips, concrete, maybe a little tile, etc. at I think two + inches deep, then rolled with a giant ride on roller which we rented. But we...

    Yes, unfortunately the court documents seem to no longer be available, but it was factually supported there. I have also spoken to former working students so I guess that is second-hand.

    I would have more respect if that whole Superhit controversy didn't happen. They did have the money to do right by the horse, but instead they tried to hide its lameness and pass it on for big bucks...

    And Isabel also has a new horse to campaign for Rio, Weihegold. Really beautiful looking test already. Will be fun to see these new pairs face off!

    Hidden Valley is having a bit of a crisis with the drought though. They are on wells so have had to truck in water. We are supposedly having a wet winter, but maybe five inches of rain so far? Not...

    This particular horse had already had major surgery for a neck basket, where they had to go in a second time to double check they hadn't left a sponge in there, and colic surgery. So another surgery...

    Just wanted to add to be sure that wherever you go, be sure they have a top of the line horse handler on staff. Have heard enough horror stories and traumatic injuries occurring while introducing...

    We had one that belonged to a boarder at our barn. She had it injected at least twice - really gross smell and discharge afterwards. It continued to come back/exist and his stall kinda looked like...

    Wanted to add that patience and time are tried and true as the best remedy. I would aim to not have him fit for riding till the summer weather kicks in. Weird to have a vet push to get him...

    My big wish for rehab horses is that someone could come up with a "flu" to give them. Something that doesn't have any serious consequences, but makes them feel crappy enough that they actually would...

    I think every move will be a chance for re injury. New surroundings, new horse buddies, super exciting! Unless you can keep him fairly zonkered through the transitions, I would minimize the...

    In my admittedly very small sample size of two, the siblings are polar opposites of each other and neither are much at all like their mother. They both look much more like their dads as well. ...
  13. Stamp stallions more likely to pass on temperament, movement as well?

    Do stallions that stamp their offspring with their looks also automatically have a heavier influence on temperament and movement as well? TIA

    I do find that certain batches of hay will get at least three of mine going -not sure why it never affects the other two... But for sure, compounded Rheaform works great. Less nasty than...

    I actually would think EPM or Lymes based on his history. I have known GP horses with PSSM, but I just think you would have had some more symptoms along the way. The sudden onset of symptoms just...

    Whisper sadly passed away. He just purchased a new horse, Brioni by Breitling, as well as did many of the other Japanese team members. Would be curious if the $$$ is coming from the the individual...

    I think the effects lasted a few months. The vet that was familiar with this did a lot of traveling and was quite expensive in general, otherwise we may have done this more often to keep him at an...

    Did it with our anxiety-ridden guy. Definitely worked. I remember it as an acupuncture spot just below the forelock.

    My older guy does that! He also "attacks" them. Ears pinned and teeth bared - like what the heck are these darn things that dare to climb onto my legs. It is quite entertaining to watch him, but...

    I see that Paragon was most recently shown by a different rider, so perhaps sold? Comparing recent scores of Guenter, Jan, Charlotte, and Kathleen they do seem all neck and neck for that third spot....

    So who would everyone like to see on the team? Would love to hear the latest impression of Charlotte Jorst and her string. Also, how is Paragon doing? He is such an impressive horse, but seemed to...

    My older, fussy, hard keepers have been eating much better since I started using the Nibble Net. Before, if the hay got spread around the stall, it was "bedding" that was not meant for consumption. ...

    My EPSM horse is extremely over-reactive to even the most gentle correction and I have had him in my care and basically been his sole care taker since birth so I know he has never been abused. I do...

    Ah yes, those craigslist ads can really make your blood boil sometimes.

    Another option you could try is to contact the local children's riding lesson barns. Sometimes a school pony just can't do...
