    Okay so I got the hole (Holy crap you guys were right about it being difficult). Did you fuse it (melt it) or just left it a bit rough?

    He's already banging around plastic containers so I can't imagine it being any noisier!

    Where do you guys make the holes? I was thinking around the lower side, so it won't just slide out but will...

    The rolly ones might work well in a field but not seemingly hung. He's mouthy so he'd need it tied as he's already flung bottles out over the wall :lol:

  4. Turning Jolly Ball into treat dispenser?

    So my boy generally doesn't "play". It took me two years to convince him that playing in the indoor is awesome (He now runs and bucks and snorts at me and waits for me to respond... rinse and...

    Poll: Combination

    I'm an introverted extrovert :lol:

    I can be very social, and even loud/bouncy when around friends. I need alone time to recharge, but if I'm alone too long I get really crabby (according to...

    That's how I found out the one at our current place was... except I WAS in my riding boots at the time :lol: They have two waterers so it took a long time to notice the one wasn't being used.

    I do agree with the above two on that. I missed it in my initial reading.

    A lot of people think they're "comforting" or "distracting" when they do those things. (One lady at my barn will pat her...

    It's a start :) It may be that the cross ties themselves cause that sense of "trap" if he's completely calm already standing in that aisle being held by you. Also shows he trusts you in that regard....

    Yup around here it's to know if a feral cat was spayed/neutered. I don't even notice it with our barn cats and they don't seem to miss it either.

    My boy won't single tie, but cross ties :rolleyes: Of course what follows has worked for me. My boy is very hyper aware, and I've had to teach him to be brave. But we're no longer bolting backwards...

    I'm in the same geographical region as you Syrnyx :) And I think anything under 50 is cold :lol:

    A good pair of winter boots to ride in and layers do help a lot however sometimes you just need a...

    Mountain Horse! I adore it, it's warm, has button flaps (so the zipper doesn't bounce off the saddle, and vents everywhere. Definitely awesome and very warm!

    Oh I wish! It's still on my "to do" list as I want to save up enough to do some real shopping! :lol:

    I'm 5'2" and 115 lbs with a short inseam (Seriously, child's XL kerrits breeches are STILL too long for me)... I really have no idea what makes a good size to ride ponies, but apparently I'm it...

    Pony Training as a Business

    So I've had numerous friends in the horse community that I'm in tell me that I should get into training ponies. I guess they've seen me handle my own boy during his meltdowns and were impressed?...

    My guy does have a bit of a wither and the saddle clears it on top and the sides really well as you can sort of see in the blog I have up for us. However he still has a wide set with the shoulders,...

    After two or three rides my mom has decided Ashe is too much for her. :lol: He's not kind to beginners and knows who he can take advantage of (though not dangerously, it's scary to beginners).

    I had been riding in a Wintec Pro Jump on my boy, who, despite his frame, actually has a wide round shoulder.

    Most saddles have what's called an "A" gullet. It pinched his shoulders and constantly...
