    You may need to build a chute to get him in the trailer--corral panels work really well. Patience, kindness, and food. And drugs.

    Yes, at a barn I boarded at, the dumba** neighbor did this while I was out getting my horses from the lowest, biggest field--10 acres that bordered his land. There were three horses and me in the...

    Oh, heck, feed him, keep him alone, and he'll love you forever! I don't care for them with my laying hens (all that forced loving and crowing...blech), but chickens are endlessly entertaining. Lure...

    I read that as $500/usd for a two day clinic to learn the skills and participate. Did I misread it somehow? Not a whole lot different that many jumping or "parelli" or bull riding and roping clinics...

    Wow. That's what both my husband and I said when we saw the "something else". Even with that dually running, those two did a heck of a pulling job there. Thanks, Mike!

    Socks over breeches: zipper goes up and down easier, keeps breeches in place, prevents rubs. Did it with pull on boots, do it now with zip up boots. Do it when wearing paddocks and half chaps for...

    My horse who is boarded only gets grain at night--he gets so little, it's no big deal. My horses at home get hay in the morning upon turnout, and their beet pulp/grain/supplements at night only when...

    What do you like about her as a trainer? You describe him as light to the fences, but what do you mean "set him up"? Talk about that. Somehow, I sense there is more to this than an ugly...

    Our neighbors sound like yours! (we refer to them as the "Piss Poor Farmers" due to their gross negligence in animal husbandry...sigh) Anyway, our property is sandwiched between to much larger...

    Good advice to start with a vet. Are you jumping 1.20 all the time?? That's a lot of wear and tear on your horse. How often are you schooling over jumps? If he's a seasoned 1.20 horse, I'm...

    I love my buckle end reins, and I live in jumper land. Easy to change bits, secure, easy to take apart for those of us with arthritic knuckles. And I can get them in shorter length for my...

    I have had horses at home growing up, then boarded at a variety of farms/barns--some good, some so-so. Then I bought my own small farmette, and I now board retirees (sometimes my own, most times...

    I was also surprised by the initial post and the objection to price at the A hunter/jumper barns mentioned. I also still maintain that Karen O'Neal is an event trainer and competitor, not an A show...

    I'm pretty sure Karen O'Neal is based out of Spokane now, not Kent. There aren't a lot of choices out on the Kitsap Peninsula. PNWJumper on here is out there and might have some suggestions. Let's...

    I will inquire as to his insulin level (I've been ripping through your website, Katy--fantastic!). His owner said he was not IR and I'll confirm that today. I'm not really fussing, just trying to...

    Ah, what a dilemma! I've enjoyed Archie's antics on your FB page (those snow videos...squee!). I don't think I could foster, I'd fail every time. Give him a massive hug from all his COTH "aunties"...

    You guys have given me some great advice and ideas! Thank you. Grass is going to be an issue, I know it. Our local, native grass is notoriously high in sugars. Grazing muzzle and time of day may be...

    Durr..sorry MG, didn't read your post well. I'm going to pick the brain of a friend who is dealing with a young IR horse about her feed regimen, as she's local and can point me in the direction of...

    What, if any, hay are you all feeding? He loves soaked beet pulp, and is a good eater--cleans up his pergolide powder and apparently eats the pill as well. I have an alfalfa/flax seed pellet that...
  21. Feeding the Cushing horse--help me out.

    I just got in a teen age warmblood gelding as a boarder who was diagnosed with Cushings in August. He has some other unrelated lameness issues (hence his retirement), and has not been laminitic at...

    I do, too. Only one or two at a time, and their special needs as they age make them quite labor (and worry) intensive. I have a really good contract and my boarders are usually my friends, riding...

    For my horses it is temperature. Some like the warm-ish water from heated buckets, some do not. Currently, my heated buckets are blue, regular buckets are green, outside trough is black. Big...

    A concrete saw is your friend, OP! We cut ours to put in water about 10 years ago.
