    Can you get the landowner to email you something saying that he's evicting the barn manager on x date ? I think that would cover you, should this go to court.

    I've heard of places being closed on Mondays, but not on the weekends. Sunday is the only day around my area where you can ride out on the trails without fear of being shot (bow hunting only, no...

    Kale and spinach have tons of calcium in them - so be careful what type of greens you offer to him

    Keep doing what you're doing ... keep him in so the wounds stay clean and dry. If you need to wrap the one on his heel bulb to keep it clean then do that, but if he's bedded in enough shavings he...

    I like the tredsteps better than the ariats - I have a crazy long calf too (measures 20" but the 19s fit perfect)

    It's not worth the risk ... who knows how many horses came into contact with the infected horses before anyone even realized they were sick.

    We put a big screw eye high up in a post in the back of the stall, not facing the aisle. Then attached a short rope to it, just short enough that the horse wouldn't be able to get a leg over it if...

    I think a deposit is a good idea, along with a very clear boarding contract, including how much they are willing to spend on say a colic or some other serious issue before pulling the plug. You...

    Yes, it is normal to put them on a daily aspirin dose to help with the flare ups. And yes to a fly mask every time the pony is out, ESPECIALLY in winter with snow on the ground.

    For sure contact the rescue that the adopted horse came from ... if they are worth their salt they will check out your story, and take the horse back. They may also report the other horses to the...

    It may not be your saddle - if you are riding at a faster speed and / or doing hills, your saddle will slide unless you use a breast collar ... I'd see if you can borrow one to test this out.

    And...

    Is there a reputable local trainer who will evaluate him for you ? Maybe come out and work with the horse a few times and then give you their opinion on him ? That may help you make a decision...

    In my search for a new saddle, I've recently tried 2 different saddles - and they paid shipping both ways. Unfortunately neither saddle worked out for me. I would be sad if their customer service...

    Is she taking her trainer with her ? If she is, I'd tell her you are too busy and let the trainer do her job. If not, tell her the truth. IE, that you want her to feel safe with her new horse, and...

    Draft horses can be very lovely horses. They aren't as athletic as a thoroughbred, but then again for what you want you don't need that.

    The one thing I will say is that you should get him...

    I had a horse that had petite mal seizures - they lasted maybe 5-10 seconds and she checked out when she had them. Took her having one in front of the vet for me to find out what they really were.

    I love my Lister Star as well. Only issue I have with them is that my local tack shop doesn't sell the blades, so I have to get them mail order :-)

    The mindset any more with pet lovers is that we need to save them all and that we need to keep them alive as long as possible no matter the cost. They don't get the whole QOL thing.

    I did the Zion ride with both riders and non-riders. We all got matched to appropriate horses, and everyone had a great time. The views were spectacular but no scary drop offs :-)
