    Thank you for sharing Stan's story. You brought me to tears. Godspeed, Stan.

    Ha. Yeah. I think that mare left me with PTSD! She was a handful. She now lives with her perfect human partner (I gave her away), but we were a poor match from day one. I couldn't be the owner she...

    I like your idea of creating buddy time between us, Naturalequus. I was planning on doing a variation of that anyway, but this week, it's been all about going out and riding because we're doing a...
  4. I'm worried...my horse seems suddenly herd bound!

    I moved my gelding from his former barn to his new barn at the beginning of April. He had been in an awesome, small-barn situation with top-notch care in upstate New York. Now he lives in an awesome,...

    Truly, it will not end with this vet bill. If you choose to pay it, you need to be sure that you understand that you will be hit with other bills for other incidents, real or imagined. I would say...

    I'm sorry for your loss, but I'm glad you have some answers. What a horse. He was lucky to have a brave, kind friend helping him.

    Also, if your boy has osteo changes in his spinal column, you may want to consult closely with your vet and get some xrays before you do chiropractic adjustments. My gelding isn't allowed to get any...

    OMG, I had something like this happen to me. "Friend" on FB tore apart a photo of me riding, complete with "this looks like a horse that's being impeded by its rider...you look tense...etc." I didn't...

    I'm struck by how much effort con artists and frauds expend in their "work." I'm too lazy for that, but I suppose that's why I'm not the criminal type. :D

    It reminds me of a couple I know who are...

    Dear most-recent former BO: Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking such good care of my beloved horse when I lived 750 miles away from him. You treated him like your own, and when he arrived in...

    I just moved to Knoxville in December, so last night's storms were my first major Southern storm experience. I was terrified, and I grew up in the Midwest where tornados and big weather are the norm...

    I just paid $100 for a full body clip of a 15.1 hand QH. I'm in east Tennessee. I don't know if that's high or low, but I was totally willing to pay it. :D

    ^^Utter, ridiculous nonsense. There is plenty of evidence that isn't anecdotal that will prove this erroneous theory wrong. What you will find under nationalized healthcare is access to care that is,...

    There are lots of reasons why people don't have insurance, and this example proves that having a comprehensive national health plan will do more good than harm. The grandmother in question would,...

    I've done it both ways. First trip was Upper Midwest to upstate NY with a commercial shipper. Second was upstate NY to east Tennessee with our friends driving our trailer. Both went very well, and I...

    One last vote of confidence for you: I just went through a similar experience. Had Vet #1 out. He dismissed findings from major university vet school diagnostics.

    I knew he was full of sh*t, so...

    New vet, for sure. Your gut is already telling you something's not adding up, and although you're not an expert, your gut and your knowledge of the pony count for something too. Best wishes on a...

    I don't think contacting the District Attorney necessarily makes the OP a bad person or nosy.

    If the family in question is using the funds appropriately, contacting the DA's office will have...

    I did it, and I don't regret it at all. My guy was in a hunter/jumper program and not holding up well under the work. I purchased him for flat work only (part of the purchase agreement), and he's...

    If you are in the law industry, why for the love of God did you not get a contract on this transaction?!? You of all people should know that without a contract, you are legally vulnerable. :confused:

    Definitely this ^^. My mare was food motivated, so using treats and praise helped reinforce the message that forward movement was a good thing.

    I used to think there was one good way, the only...

    Yes.

    My husband calls it "horse porn." You know, I look at the hot photos of sparkling dressage horses turned out perfectly (and at a price that's more than my annual salary) or the adorable,...

    But they didn't say "tough [edit]." That's what everyone seems to be overlooking. They asked the OP for more information and then said they'd look into it. They behaved appropriately, and given the...

    I had a mare who had been a great loader and then had a bad experience on the trailer. It was very frustrating, but we used a combination of the butt rope (i.e. lunge line around the butt), treats...
