    keep in mind that the horse grounds much better than you with bare feet on the ground or steel shoes. They are also much more sensitive to low level electric current. It could be the plug in...

    How about a Fjord. Super low maintenance, great temperament, great feet and legs, brave...sensible...steady. We have a 2 year old at home and he's just the best.

    Next time try mixing the seed with a good flowing dry sand. That will dilute the seed enough to allow you to spread at the desired topdressing rate.

    It will take many YEARS to spread by itself...

    a) what atlatl said.

    b) well yes, if it makes you happy. Don't think I'd breed a full TB to Toto...doesn't really make logical sense for most breeders, but if you want a little Toto in the...

    I love a good chestnut...but the only ones I have had were blingy. Plain chestnut can be a bit boring. My Checkmate is a bay filly with blaze and a few white socks. Very cute.

    Can you PM me...

    It depends a bit on your personal taste and what discipline you are aiming for.

    I used Checkmate on an older style mare, and he refined, made a prettier head and it looks like she will end up...

    cloud dust is VERY fine, typically mould from hay that was baled too damp. Leaf shatter dust will drop to the ground right away, and is not harmful. You can get dusty hay in all hay shapes, from...

    If people are motivated to sell, they will get you videos and photos. I agree that I'd rather only post GOOD video. If I don't have good video, I'd rather not put up video at all. The expectation...

    I have one of the older Wintec Pro Dressage saddles (without Cair). You can pick them up for about 400 used. They have the Equisuede finish which rides really nice for dressage, much better than...

    As for preservatives....well, those are a necessary part of providing safe feed. Added at very low levels mould inhibitors and anti oxidants help keep feeds mould free, and prevents the feed from...

    Your best bet is to sell her IN FOAL. It proves she's a proven breeder, and even if as a buyer if it's not the stallion I would have chosen, I still prefer to know she's carrying a foal. You can...

    and sadly this is why so many horses NEED shoes. You cannot trim the same when they are barefoot vs shod. The trim must be different. You're completely changing the hoof functioning putting a shoe...

    I've ridden my share of Draft crosses and they often have a tough mouth and a heavy neck. Hot and forward on a Clyde Cross could feel a bit like trying to control a freight train :)....and I'm 6...

    I breed warmbloods and buy and sell a bit. I've sold quite a few to baby boomers. I breed for temperament and have had some success supplying the 60 plussers with attractive, good moving, very...

    I know a Clyde Hackney that has show I1 OPEN successfully, and the owner rides him in the Amateur PSG. He's VERY nice....but he's not built like a TYPICAL Clyde cross. He's also quite HOT and...

    Selling foals is tough so I normally don't even try, but I did put out some ads this year and sold a very nice dressage type filly. The market is very limited for foals but there seems to be good...

    I really don't think Europe is the answer. Those horses are here available for sale at the same price as in Europe with far less risk. When buying local it's far easier to do a history search on...

    I know a couple mares who have had foals outside in the pouring rain. I don't question they can hold off delivery for a while, but having it in the rain probably would be safer in many ways, since...
