    I'm 49, married with a ten year old daughter and a full time job plus a 62 mile commute each way to work. I have four horses, 6 minis, two mini goats and a llama; 10 dogs, and a whole herd of cats -...

    What's that saying, "comparison is the thief of joy"? Guilty. And I completely agree BFNE, it's all in my head and I'm the only one putting the pressure on to make a change. Fortunately my...

    And have I mentioned how much I HATE selling horses. All the tire kickers and the people who don't bother to read the ad; and then the people who come out to try the horse but who really don't ride...
  4. That's great that you've got one made and one...

    That's great that you've got one made and one developing. Right now, both of mine are developing as they are only a year apart, and that's hard. I did go ahead and list the middle guy for sale but...

    Yes, I do have a day job and a 62 mile commute each way which doesn't help. I actually had a long chat with my coach on the way home and think I am going to go about finding Mr. Intense his own...

    I am SO there JP60!

    I have these stupid rationalization talks with myself ALL. THE. TIME!

    Sell Mr. Intense and get the little brother going. But then, greenies are a PITA, so sell little...

    We're not really set up to board but have done a bit of it in the past with close friends and it only caused more stress. Have found that most people don't treat your property as you do, and it can...

    Unfortunately they, and consequently you, seem to have to learn to suck it up until it gets better. You might want to get a small or mini donkey to be your third wheel companion to whichever one...

    You are too kind. Thing is, I feel like an idiot most of the time for not just having the one horse. Or maybe two at the most -- the two easy ones. I know that would be the smartest thing. ...
  11. Do you put unnecessary pressure on yourself?

    Gah! God knows I do. I am blessed to have three good horses: My main guy, a 7 year old; his younger, 6 year old half brother with ADD; and his baby full brother, who comes 5 this year. I ride the...

    My favorite feel good story on here. So glad the Grand Dame is thriving.

    Just saw this and am terribly sorry for the loss. Hopefully your homeowner's insurance covered the "structure". Wonderful that you just lost stuff and none of the animals, so could have been so...
  14. Has anyone checked his stifles for being weak. ...

    Has anyone checked his stifles for being weak. One of my horses got rather reactive on the right side at the SI joint last year and as it turns out, he was weak in that stifle. Some rest, a little...
  15. Well, if you do ever consider changing his name,...

    Well, if you do ever consider changing his name, it clearly needs to be "Indestructible". Then again, that might just be a challenge he would accept, so maybe not. :o Besides his current name is...

    I love Tipperary Helmets. I think they're attractive and reasonably priced. I refuse to pay big bucks for a helmet just because it's trendy. I ride dressage in an Ovation and SJ and CC in a...

    Both. Not a bad idea really. You could place one out for each horse, securing each to a different fence post and then just load...

    Years ago I had a young Arabian who sat down hard after rearing up, injuring his tail and causing him to hold it wry/crooked. I had an equine chiropractor out who used body mechanics in order to get...

    I would think any of the pet enzyme products like Out and PePe or Simple Solution will also work on bunny pee. I would treat thoroughly, let it dry, then spray heavily with Fabreeze Pet, let dry and...

    Definitely sounds like a medical issue versus behavioral. Hope the vet gets to the, a'hem, bottom? of the issue for you.

    I don't but a close friend does. She and her husband invested in a lovely boy of well-regarded show lines known for good temperaments and he has certainly been a stellar example of that. She had...
