    In 2013, I took on an OTTB gelding because he had been declared dangerous (he wasn't, but his owner was an adult beginner who needed an old school horse, not a young racehorse). I took him as a last...

    Val's Corral

    Anybody have any experience with Val's Corral (Eleanor Vallone) in Pennsylvania?

    And also for the record, the OP has taken excellent care of Dancer in his time with her and has been a BIG help to me in the next step with him. Even though they weren't a good match, meeting her was...

    For the record, Dancer is my horse. He did not spend the winter in my care, which is why he looks the way he looks. I got him at the beginning of 2013. He was race fit when I got him:...

    Me too. My boss at the vet clinic brought in a puppy that had been found on the streets mid-seizure and had to have her stomach pumped. That was dog #1.

    I agree. The USTA descriptions aren't always perfect (for example, my STB has a white heel on his RH that isn't on his registration papers). I imagine they would mention the spotting though. I'll...

    This is probably a silly question, but have you checked his sternum for a freezebrand? I'm sure you would have noticed one on his neck or shoulder, but some farms/trainers brand their horses between...

    Unfortunately, veterinary medicine is starting to get inflated, much like human medicine. I work as a tech for a low cost clinic and I hear what other places charge for the same stuff we do. I...

    I have two stellar trail horses. My first is a standardbred gelding. He has competed successfully in 50's up and down the east coast and is currently doing CTR.

    The other is a Morgan... he is the...

    I use a bitless bridle when I compete my horse so he can eat and drink easily on trail. He's perfectly happy in a bit, but doesn't need one and is just as happy without one.

    I'm not a fan. I prefer your straightforward side pull type bridles, or hackamores (specifically the s-hack). The crossing action sends mixed signals to a lot of horses, and if you horse has a hair...

    I absolutely love having a mecate for trail training, especially when it comes to first water crossings with green horses. I use a modified mecate rather than a traditional one. I coil the end, loop...

    Joined this group a while ago. Just dropping by to tell you that I love it and it really brightens my daily FB feed. Great idea!

    My favorite brand of feed, hands down. I don't feed most of my horses other than free choice hay, but the LS is my go-to for hard keepers, rehab cases, and special needs horses who need more than hay...

    You do NOT sound like a hysterical 'fur mommy'. You sound reasonable. The vents shared here, I imagine, are very different from how these situations are handled when they happen in the office. I have...

    Non horse people drive by, see fly masks, and think they are some sort of cruel blind fold. Those same people think many riding practices are cruel. We, as horse people, roll our eyes at them and...

    This is so true, and something people don't think of.


    This goes hand in hand with what was said above. It's not nearly as comforting to your 'fur kid' as you think it is to have you standing...

    That was my thought too.


    We use the cat bag as well as a mask for particularly bad patients. The calming effect it has on the CAT is amazing, but the owners get pretty stressed when they see...
