    I have a trough under a downspout too. It's great.

    I also have a friend who fusses about the state of my troughs, but my horses HATE water in a scrubbed, bleached container. It's not full of...

    I have a certain "type" for my horses - not conformation or breed, but personality. They are nonreactive, easy, want to please, caretaker sorts.

    I do not believe that most horses could be molded...

    For me, it is a horse that goes where I want, at the speed I want, and will do nothing to cause me to come off - will even help me stay on, and will use good judgment in the event that I don't. ...

    Agreed - one of my favorite trail rides ever, but the trail has been closed due to some property disputes. I was lucky to ride there several times first. It's on the edge of Big South Fork, near...

    Do you mean separated, always? Or just not with a fence between them? I've had a lot of horses here, generally without issue. Fighting doesn't last with enough turnout, with the vast majority. ...

    I'm in east TN, and I trail ride exclusively. We are fortunate to have tons of amazing trails in our immediate area, mostly around the lakes, as well as being very close to Big South Fork.

    I think more turnout is better. I muzzle the one who can't have unlimited grass. Movement is good.

    I love my EZ Feeders. They are no trouble to fill, and are sturdy enough for my PITA horse.

    The same is true for all hoses, with the exception of the very expensive white RV hoses.

    Third kid fell in a pond today. He lived, and learned. (He's 14, not 2!)

    I haven't even thought of checking poop. The horses have hay and water, and the snow has stopped.

    Dang, I hadn't...

    I use the tank heater that goes in the drain hole, and I haven't had any issues (knocking wood), other than the water evaporates too fast. I also have a large (18 gallon?) heated bucket that works...

    I love them. My only failure has been running over one with a bush hog, but I can't blame that on the hose. I do put them in a bucket between every use.

    Like most things, it depends. I often pony one of mine, and I have turned my old mare loose a few times, in specific spots. I'd say it's inappropriate the vast majority of the time, but sometimes...

    What do you do when you lose a shoe 6 miles (or 15 miles) out? That happens far more frequently, in my experience. So, does that mean shoes are not a valid option?

    My barefoot horses walk more comfortably on large gravel than my friends' shod horses. The shoe isn't as tall as the rock, so it doesn't protect the sole anyway. Boots obviously offer better...

    I am liking Hearty Hoof, but I don't think you can put something on a hoof that will help a horse that is sore for days-weeks after a trim.

    I think it's more likely diet/laminitis. The trim...

    I'd fix those front feet before I would go looking for other issues. They are pretty awful, and it seems like they could be causing a multitude of issues. Did the vet not mention that trim?

    With horse #2, I'd try riding her bitless for a bit and see how that goes. Horse #1, it's awfully early days to expect more than you're getting, given her history.
