    Same here. Everyone comments on how friendly my horse is. You and this guy could be best buddies. :)

    Where do you live? The only coyote kills I've heard of were by either coy-dogs or coy-wolves. Coyotes don't hunt in packs like wolves or dogs. (That info is from USFS)

    Posts like this infuriate me. I'm sorry, truly sorry about your horse. But to blame everything on a little critter is wrong. Opossums aren't the nasty, vicious creatures people make them out to be....

    I've always thought that the farms that do keep their stallions fit are doing a good thing. Keeping a horse active in the brain and body during off breeding is more work than just letting them hang...

    I take her statement to mean dressage training is good for all horses, but you must be cognizant of your horses limitations. Pushing a horse to do what it physically can't is a bad thing in all...

    Your horse reminds me of a story that I just read about on coth. A cart horse turned dressage star by a very talented rider. There were quotes in the story regarding how "ugly"the horse was. Long...

    Well my personal conformation holds me back. If I was a svelte, long legged thing I'd at least LOOK better if not ride better. Or where you talking about the horse? ;)

    I live in the land of irrigation. I've had a lot of problems due to the lush grasses that never die. And my farrier says irrigated pastures cause a lot of issues in the hoof as well as the belly.

    I love the line about "all horses are welcome in England and they loved her there". (Not a verbatim quote)

    Looking past the breeding and seeing the talent. Brilliant!

    Warning people is a start, but it's your responsibility to keep your horse under control. Send your horse to a colt starter, they have the skills to deal with kickers. The one gelding I had that...

    Beowulf, thanks for the insight. Livingstone and Winsome are both attractive and talented horses. Just more proof that conformation isn't the be-all/end-all.

    See, this is what I don't get. You bring a potentially dangerous horse to a show and then quiddich about other riders. There are trainers that can get a horse past firing at other riders and horses....

    I think WA has weird looking back legs, so straight and then very angled fetlocks. Livingstone is visually much more appealing in stance and over fences. (to me) Obviously WA is a superlative horse!

    I've heard that term used for the long English spur. Rowel spurs are spinners or wheels. (In my area, lots of cowboys that work the feed lots here)

    I don't get the whole privacy thing. Make it clear to boarders they are not to come to the house, apt, etc. The one training barn I was at wasn't closed on Mondays, but the trainer was not available....
