    I really like Morgans, but I have found they have more issues learning to actually use their back so I would do lots of poles/cavaletti. He might also have some fun jumping for some fun/variety.

    If they have gone this long without being trimmed, they can go a little longer. I would wait until they are more handled and comfortable with the environment before trimming them, even with drugs.

    Can you pony him? I would think it would be easier on his joints than longeing, and he could likely do with getting fit without the added weight of a rider at first.

    I think I would be more...

    I am in Alberta (near Edmonton). There are a few eventing barns around here, but our eventing season is short, and we don't have high level courses. I know eventers who lived in southern BC and they...

    I think No Bows are just foam filled wraps. Can blister more than quilts depending on what you put under them.

    I use the wider vet wrap. I think 3" as well.

    Actually I think the buyer is putting herself more at risk by not negotiating a price now than the seller. She will have invested in the PPE by this point and you will have additional information...

    Are you sure you even want your own farm? Sounds like you have a good deal now, AND friends to ride with. I found riding at home lonely and I would sometimes worry about riding a silly horse if there...

    Riding WP will likely get you more in tune with your seat and body mechanics when riding your hunters. I don't think you will get your aids confused as the two disciplines are so different I think...

    I don't think jumping is a natural inclination for a horse, so I think it is more interesting that we can teach horses to jump rather than that they are happy to stay penned.

    I want the trainer's goals to match my own. I am not super competitive and want to enjoy the journey, so I don't want a coach that pushes my horse to a point they are frustrated. I also want a coach...

    The vet said that tick born viruses would cause an immune reaction that would show up in the blood work.

    Aside from her swelling, and slightly breathing hard at times, you wouldn't know she was...

    She had been on Excenel last week (Tuesday-Friday). Not sure what they are putting her on now.

    Calvenza has agreed to pay for Diagnostics on the mare, so the vet came out today to do more tests on their behalf.

    Mare's temperature had been in the 102s this morning, but 5 cc of Banamine...

    Royal T vs Circle J horse trailers

    Have any of you owned/used either the Royal T or Circle J angle haul trailers? We are considering a three horse all aluminum model trailer of either brand(both have wood floors). I just want...

    Wow...that is quite a story!

    Benefit of lip tattoos...a horse's history stays with it.

    Sticky tape on the counters works well to discourage a kitty. Cardboard squares covered in double sided tape works.

    Lol! It's sad and funny all in one.

    My former assistant just finished farrier school down in the US. Her biggest issue was with all the forge work they did the first few weeks: she was really glad she had apprenticed here first and had...

    She was vaccinated by the vet. I will have to ask about that!

    Unfortunately Izzy's fever came back today (104+ F), and her legs have regained much of the fill they had lost. Banamine helped her...

    I guess when the flu went through the race track a couple years ago, many horses did present the same way as my mare. Perhaps a local strain?

    She was vaccinated in March for Strangles, so not a...

    We really aren't in an area with much for ticks. Possibly the rare tick out in the bush were the deer and coyotes hang out, but this horse is not out in the bush, just in a short grass paddock during...

    I agree with trying diclofenac. Also consider Back on Track socks to help reduce the inflammation.

    I would also guess wide tread stirrups may help spread out the pressure points.
