    I would definitely do a couple of weeks of gastroguard. 400 lbs seems pretty small for a 9 month old-- is he a pony? What did his mom get fed?

    Do whatever you need to do to safely get her through rehab. Better living through chemistry is not the end of the world.

    The chances are better if they are big enough to be ridden by an adult (so large pony) but yes it is a tough sell. Those guys look like they might be major projects.

    Yes, tendons can bow if wrapped too tightly/ unevenly. No bows are thinner but work because the type of fill (foam vs cotton) is different. Some people find them easier to wrap with since they are...

    I keep ending up with the LL Bean duck boots. Not particularly stylish but they are durable and waterproof. If you don't need super waterproof, I would just get hiking boots though.

    Go and ask them to stop, politely. And also put up a sign and a strand of electric wire. Don't forget that you can be held liable if someone gets bitten or kicked even if they are trespassing.

    Obviously better to scratch than run a lame horse-- that said, it's possible that there was something else going on, like the horse stepped on itself but ended up being okay, or is a funky mover that...

    I think it's less different ways of learning and more different levels of interest. I run semi- competitively, and I enjoy it, but I just don't have much desire to analyze it, work on form, get a...

    I'm not at all a hoof boot expert-- but I don't think most of the boots are designed to be left on 24/7 (i.e. not in the stall). So you would be putting them on and taking them off which would be a...

    I would send the survey out to both current and past members (and maybe go back 5 years or so). Maybe offer a lottery type prize drawing for anyone who responds-- doesn't have to be a hugely...

    Event horses jump liverpools all the time without any confusion. Open water I could see maybe being an issue.

    I find that most of them do figure out water well enough to event, even if they...

    It was sunny last year at Waredaca but it was COLD. Frost on the grass at the jogout before showjumping. I don't think fitness for the riding phases is a huge issue if you are used to riding/...

    I've had it done at Bartville. I don't think it was outrageously expensive but I don't remember how much exactly.

    My guys seem to like the inexpensive fleece ones (they are not going to try the real sheepskin ones though). I like that they can go in the washing machine.

    Depends on whether I am competing that week or have just been to an event, but generally 2-3 days of flat work with a little bit of hacking, 2-3 days of just hacking/ trail riding/ conditioning work,...

    Mine are almost 5 years old, so I'm not sure if this is accurate for the current ones-- but M is 10 inches and L is 11 inches. I use the M all around on a 15.1 TB with good bone (he could have gone...

    Yes, I've used tennis racquet tape, which probably is the same as hockey stick tape. Most sporting goods stores should have something. You can always sort of fill the gap with vet wrap or something...

    Sometimes it's worth saying something to shut it down. "I'm on a no negativity kick these days, so enough!" Smile when you say it, but walk away if she starts up again.

    As far as I can see, ALL laws are based on society's moral compass. What else is there to base them on? (Unless you believe they are based on laws handed down by God, in which case he was oddly...
