    Unexplained anxiety could also be health-related, particularly in woman. Changes with adrenal and thyroid hormones can cause issues like that (ask me how I know), so if you can't get a handle on it,...

    My go to method for hunt coats is to tumble them in the dryer with a damp towel and a dryer sheet. Works like a charm!

    I really don't feel bad that my first impulse is to be kind and supportive. There is enough cynicism in the world. No wallets were opened, just kind words offered. I was in a position at one time...

    My daughter's spicy little Welsh pony learned to pull like a freight train because I put him in a thick double jointed snaffle while she was in the "water skiing" phase. Once she got better with her...

    Horse politics are a part of life. I have a four-stall barn, with three separate paddocks, leading to three separate pastures, with a divided enclosed overhang opening to each section. I am...

    That was a gorgeous horse! I wonder what the breeding was?

    I've been following the other thread because I have an old guy who doesn't drink well. I took some advice on that thread and threw a handful of Senior feed in his heated bucket last night, and voila!...

    In my experience, feeding hay in any kind of a trough just results in the horse flipping the hay out and going for the fine stuff on the bottom. I have something similar and it hasn't been used in...

    I actually wasn't presenting this source as a definitive answer to the issue, just another point of view. I do find it interesting that warmblood breeders focusing on jumpers and dressage normally...

    No my cup of tea. Awhile back there was a horse on craigslist who had a big hole (healed over, but still) in his hindquarters from being gored by a bull. We have people locally who still do that kind...

    I can't decide which is worse, the people who left behind the pony or the people who left behind their mother-in-law! I guess they both can be a bit evil :lol:
