    When I first went solo I was rasping every other week or so and didn't have a use for nippers. Now I am comfortable and confident enough to let them go four weeks. I still often don't need to nip...

    Bucas claims to have nearly untearable material.

    I too would suggest a sacrifice layer on top.

    There is a tack shop in Ontario that sold a blanket with steel thread woven into the outer...

    Me. I started by touching up between regular farrier visits.

    One of the biggest things is to look at tons of hoof pictures to adjust your mental image of a good hoof form. Knowing the goal form...

    I think some of the blame can be placed on BBs like CotH. People aren't sure about how some words are spelled (farrier/ferrier comes to mind) and they see the misspellings so often and assume that...

    :lol: In Eastern Ontario polos are a bad choice in snow once we get beyond the first fall or so. We tend to have warmer days that melt the top layer of snow which then freezes into a hard crust, or...

    I suggest you think about the intended use of the cooler. When you would use it, how often, why you would use it.

    My cooler is used on my wet horse when he is in the barn and I want him to dry...

    This is typical of introverts. Small talk, large socializing groups, strangers are difficult for introverts.

    I am also an introvert.

    The fact that my horse takes far longer to dry under the nylon panel than anywhere else under the cooler is a big "the nylon panel doesn't breathe very well" billboard. ;)

    You are worried about losing something you no longer have. The culture at your barn has changed, and it's unlikely to change back unless that new BM up and leaves.

    It happens. Barn cultures...

    I don't know what WB's official reasoning for the nylon is, but in my experience the panel slows drying as it doesn't breathe well at all. I think it does help hold the shape of the cooler's neck...

    Countrywood, I found that the difficultly doable exercise for the horse is also a good way to take the rider's focus off their own fear/worries because you have to focus on the exercise as well both...

    Ditto calling the vet. If there are some adhesions/scar tissue that is causing the hitch they need to be broken down sooner than later. My horse had some adhesions with an extensor injury and he...

    Umm... Maybe my math is off, but if your guy is in week six and the barn farrier's due in six weeks... How often does the barn farrier come? If your guy needs six week trims and the barn farrier...

    If he was responsive in the slow twist then yes, I absolutely would use it. And then I would work both our butts off to TRAIN the response I wanted from him. Once he was understanding and going...

    With mine the key was an exercise he could do, but one difficult enough that he needed to pay attention to it. Taking enough of his mental focus off the scary stuff by demanding it for something...

    Work out the cost of picking her up yourself. Is it really cheaper than the quote you have?

    I would be inclined to go get her myself. But that's me. ;)

    So bring her in and stick her in her stall with a bit of feed before you do anything else. She will have lots of time to eat while you get your other mare, and get your supplies ready.

    You paid for a spot, not that stall specifically. IMO There would have to be a new horse come in for you to be reimbursed.

    Interesting that my "I need an indoor" reason gives off an "I'm temporary" vibe. I offered the ice/indoor reason as assurance that my current barn hasn't kicked me out/I'm not leaving over perceived...
  24. Would this put you off (communication with potential barn)

    We lost our nice snow to rain, and now there is too much ice to ride my young horse. I am looking at moving him to a barn with an arena because he needs to work.

    First barn is full.
