    Now that I'm in So Cal I feed VERYdifferently then I did in SW WA.

    ROTFLMAO

    That is just too funny! Personally, I've never spent more than $400 on a saddle. And am highly unlikely to. I've ridden in the truly high-end saddles (had an extremely generous...

    Hoping your mare isn't pregnant!

    But this is one of the (few) statements you've made that I disagree with. I, personally, feel this is a topic EVERY mare owner should give some thought to. About...

    :lol: Too true! Who was it that used to have the sig line "Ponies are serial killers reincarnated"? I've never known one of those supposedly 'saintly' ponies that are supposed to exist out there...

    :lol: Do you know how jealous those other adults probably are? You know every adult beginner desperately wanted a pony when they were younger and still, in their heart of hearts, want one. I know...
  6. Ah! Now that little tidbit puts a different spin...

    Ah! Now that little tidbit puts a different spin on things. IMO, there is a big difference between a person who is barn-blind & in total denial that their horse is lame and a person intentionally &...
  7. naw...THIS is holier-than-thou

    naw...THIS is holier-than-thou :p My response? If I know for *sure* that the barn owner is not disclosing that the horse is lame (and I'd have to be 100% absolutely sure on that), then truthfully...

    You're right about CBER, but the above quote was from Crossed Sabers.


    Never ceases to amaze (and depress. and disgust.) me how vulnerable entitites whether they be horses, dogs, cats, or even...

    Where's that blushing icon!? Doh! I should know better than to do anything this week! (er, month) I knew it was cyanide...don't know where I got going on arsenic. I'll blame it on the murder...
  10. Yes it is. And it depends on what the temps are,...

    Yes it is. And it depends on what the temps are, whether it has any preservatives (the human grade stuff at the grocery store usually does), how it is packaged, etc. But the answer is generally...
  11. Flax seeds...along with almonds & many other...

    Flax seeds...along with almonds & many other foods we don't think twice about eating...naturally contain cyanogenic glucosides. If you eat them in excess, you end up with arsenic poisoning. HOWEVER,...

    Usually it's just the husk that you're seeing...the meat has been digested but the fiberous shell is left. This can happen with both flax & BOSS (as well as oats and a host of other grains).

    As...
  13. A gelding with no history of agressive behavior...

    A gelding with no history of agressive behavior lunges (or jumps? Not clear from your post) over an electrified fence to attack your mare seriously enough to break her jaw? Seems to me your mare had...
  14. I was thinking the same thing. And suspensory...

    I was thinking the same thing. And suspensory tear that severe sounds more like an actual injury than 'using him up'.

    Have you asked what they plan on doing with him if you don't take him? It...

    It depends on the horse & the particular pattern of the chrome. Some I love it on, some I don't.

    On the white feet weaker than black, I also disagree. One of my bay mares has a white foot & sock...

    http://www.divorcemag.com/articles/

    This is a good place to start. Plus, they have links to the divorce laws of all 50 states. I learned a ton by reading there. Some things I wish I would have...

    If the only thing she's good at (and reliable for) is cleaning stalls, than hire someone else to do everything else and adjust her pay accordingly. I would certainly not let her remain responsible...

    If you don't believe that it is extra work & time going to a seperate bin for your horse's feed (and don't even get me started on horses with their own hay!), I suggest you try feeding for awhile. ...

    Had another thought in case you do manage to get the mare... You might want to make your purchase contingent on a vet check and DO NOT LET THE MARE OUT OF YOUR SIGHT from the instant the vet gets...

    Wow. What a post. Here I thought when I opened it that it would be more raves & wonderful info about my all-time favorite stallion. The stallion I'm saving my pennies in the hope that by the time...

    Voice of reason!

    People like that can do whatever they want on their own, but I bitterly resent the way they handicap the unfortunate groups they get invovled with. I would love to send them...

    My new favorite grooming addition is one of those cloths for dusting that have 'microfibers' that dust sticks to. You can either just shake them out or throw them in the washing machine. They're a...

    I agree. I know of an 18 year old 16+h registered gelding right now that does a beautiful solid second level dressage test, will pack almost anyone around a cross-country course, totally sound, has...

    There are many, many fates worse than death. I've seen more of them up close than I care to. :cry:
