    I, for one, will never name my child Harold Richard. Not that I have or will have a child, just sayin'.

    I can't imagine any full-grown horse could get by with just 2 flakes of hay all day before dinner. Maybe mine are just hoovers, even my hony, but that would drive me away.

    This barn is no longer...

    I voted introvert. That should not be confused with anti-social. I love going to the barn and hanging out, being social. These are people I know and am comfortable with. I can talk to them about...

    Add me to the list of folks who say there's not enough info to advise. Sounds as if the OP rides a lot of nice horses on a regular basis. That's no small thing. Is the trainer actually lying or is...

    I see. Fair enough. That's generally not in SQL alone, right? You use multiple languages to do that?

    Relational databases aren't going away but newer technologies are minimizing the need to actually write SQL code to query the DB. In fact, about 15 years ago I helped design a GUI to query the DB...

    My mare has 2" nibble nets now. The 1.5" (different brand) made her angry and stressed. Really. Tossed her head around, seemed to stop eating out of frustration, I even thought she was colicking. She...

    Euthanasia would not be inappropriate in this case. You took him in and tried to make him a solid citizen under saddle. Sadly for him that didn't work, but I don't see why you should now be punished...

    I agree the best thing you could do for this horse would be to sell him to a good home. His best chance lies in working through a trainer to get him fit, re-trained, and sold. If you're not right for...

    Admittedly a different situation, but I once had a BO (a lawyer) leave a note in the barns telling all boarders to write checks out to her or leave. Stuff hit the fan because BM's father and business...

    No. At $1000 a month not including vet bills, I'd need to win the lottery or have my own farm. I already have two, one of whom is a pasture puff. I think the options are different when you don't have...

    Effax combo I like for cleaning.

    For conditioning, Effax Lederbalsam or Akene. Both provide nice conditioning without a waxy feel afterwards. I DISLIKE Passier Lederbalsam for the waxy residue -...

    I'm not one to give up my riding horse. If you're like me, you need that. I'd give the pony some more time. I'd try to figure out how to keep both for a year+. Pasture board for the pony, pull shoes...

    I see nothing offensive or concerning in the communication. In fact, they may be pretty full because they are good. And they may well think you're looking to stay a couple months only. You don't...
