    Wow!! what great luck...reminds me of a story

    Shortly after meeting my husband, he bought me a quite nice A/O hunter type horse, very flashy, but the horse had one nasty little habit. About every 10th time we needed to get on the trailer, and it...
  2. and part of it will depend on what you and hubby weigh

    You likely won't be able to use the same vehicle for both horses, I have a 14.2 Morgan, fairly stout, and I "had" a cob sized vehicle that was just too heavy for him, but had been fine for a 15h QH...

    no one has ever discussed "co ownership" with me..

    and as to why I wish to show conformation and not breed, it's just something that interests me that I think I would enjoy. In the horse show world, I believe you could show a gelding in conformation...

    Well, you asked...

    Here is my one, and almost only complete and absolute dealbreaker when purchasing a horse for any reason. If it won't march on the most god awful, wouldn't put a dog I didn't like in it, horse...

    Why won't good breeders sell intact puppies?

    Before everyone tells me I should get a shelter dog and tell the breeders to take a hike, I have a question.

    I'd like to purchase a very nice, show quality dog, from a very reputable breeder and...

    Yes. And it was a couple of years before I got the farm of my dreams. The first day I turned ''the replacement"horse out in the beautiful new fenced field and watched him run, I bawled my eyes out.....

    Not every mean horse has been abused.

    Some of them are just dicks. Really. I've been around some really nasty ones. Sometimes, if they go off on you for no good reason (and I don't care if Pookie was pissed about the hay, his blanket or...

    Banks don't hate horses...

    But in the current climate, in order to buy a business (or a piece of property you wish was a business) you are going to have to have around 20% down and pretty good credit. Experience in that...

    I have a big bay roan QH gelding that can be ridden and driven, but will never be a star or even competitive at anything. He was purchased strictly to be a companion for my former field hunter. He...
  15. And truthfully, most horse sports are "dirty"

    You just have to figure out what level of dirt you are comfortable with. You can't pick a sport where there are no PEDs, no "abusive" training, no back door deals and inflated hidden commissions. ...

    I love my barn cats...

    mercifully, my insane cat allergy allows me to feel guilt free at not having any problem bigger than identifying the species of entrails in the barn aisle.

    Would have faded to that lovely chocolate color that everyone admires. Only one way to get "that" color, ride in the rain, the snow, the heat, everything. Or you could buy a brown one.
