    I'm going out on a limb here & guessing by "everyone" you mean "everyone under 50yo".
    I campaigned my just-under-16h TB as a Hunter/Eventer and never felt he was small. Got him when I was 39, lost...

    I have one who sounds like a top-loading washer when he eats!

    I've given him "placemats" of rubber roofing that at least contain the mess to where he eats.
    He leaves me a very messy bucket that...

    I agree with Appsolute - if the ammonia odor is that strong it is not doing your horse's lungs any good.
    And a barn owner/manger that would allow the place to remain so unhealthy (for both horses &...

    My response in BOLD above.
    If you are seeing, but not smelling wet spots, then your stall is clean enough for a horse to live comfortably.
    Lighten up or ask about doing the cleaning yourself, at...

    The only thing I'd change if I had a winning lottery ticket would be to spin the house 180 so windows faced the pastures & barn.

    My name is 2Dogs, and I am a Google-holic.

    If I had a nickel for every time I've suggested someone use the search engine I'd have no mortgage & have barn staff.

    I'm with you, SharonA!
    I can see grass where I shoveled the knee-high & worse drifts so I could walk to the barn.
    Then we had a day of blessed 30s, high enough to melt down to the grass and it is...

    My suppliers always offer to take back or credit me for any "bad" bales.
    Bad can mean anything from obviously moldy to horses did not eat.
    10% (10 out of 100) is not a bad ratio, I'd ask about a...

    I had good luck treating a mild case by towel-drying then alternating Panalog one day & gelled betadine the next. No wrapping & horse was turned out 24/7, stalled only to feed.
    IIRC it took about a...

    Depends on the particular TB you get.
    My TB was also OTT (failed racer, but worked as a pony horse for the trainer) - he was blanketed the first 5yrs I owned him because I was at a show barn where...

    First winter on your own is a real eye-opener.
    I wish I could say it gets better, but maybe "tolerable" is a better word.
