    If he has a preferred lead and will swap to that lead, in conjunction with a crooked tail, it's an indication that something may be sore or out of alignment, even if you can't feel it under saddle....

    I love James Morrow, but there are very few people I would recommend him to. He's a science fiction author and hard-core satirist of organized religion, and he doesn't pull any punches - he pokes fun...
  4. My office has crappy chairs too, and I have...

    My office has crappy chairs too, and I have chronic back problems, so it's definitely an issue for me. Also, the desk is made for a much taller person than me, so with the seat at the right height,...
  5. I'll second this, and further make the point that...

    I'll second this, and further make the point that I first teach my horses to stand still while being worked around when tied -- either to a post or on the crossties. No moving unless I specifically...

    My old horse had it for a long time, but not as severe as a lot of others I've seen. His fetlocks started dropping in his early teens. He tooled around the pasture for years and was able to do...

    I add water to the pate, too -- it's a good way to get extra water into them to prevent bladder/urinary issues. The consistency that seems to work best for us is something resembling applesauce or...
  8. My horse and I can both feel the difference when...

    My horse and I can both feel the difference when using a Thinline pad. He has mild lordosis, and it's hard for him to build as much back muscle as a normal-backed horse. I got a big square Ultra...

    How about one cat photobombing another cat?
  10. Natural Balance...

    Natural Balance cat food is coin shaped (at least the 2 kinds I use), but the pieces are small -- the size of flattened peas. Not sure if that will work for you or not. They have a Limited Ingredient...

    Really depends on where you are, but IIRC my cost was similar to jennywho's, maybe a little bit more. The vet told me it was my choice to do it or not, but if I didn't do it, my horse wouldn't be...

    I had a very similar cross -- Trakehner/Canadian Hackney/Clyde. Dressage through first level and evented through Training. Unfortunately he had a big drafty body on skinny little legs, and they...

    My 19-year-old has a grade 1 murmur and does 50-mile endurance rides. I didn't even find out he had it for several years, until a vet at a ride told me about it and let me listen to it. It doesn't...

    I use a Toklat Woolback pad with ultra thinline inserts. Woolbacks come in a zillion different shapes, so you can probably find one that fits your saddles. If you get one with a velcro opening along...

    My horse ate Ultimate Finish 25 for a year or so, then started turning up his nose at it. Somehow he figured out how to leave the nuggets in the bottom of his feed bin after eating his regular feed,...
  16. Yay for good news! I noticed the same thing when...

    Yay for good news! I noticed the same thing when I first started working with my buddy-sour horse -- he was much quieter when he was in by himself. When another horse was in with him, he was too busy...

    My old gelding managed to wrap LIVE electric wire AROUND HIS HEAD once. The solar charger was mounted on the roof of the run-in for better sunlight, and the wire was mounted to the outside of the...

    True, but you're not going to find a cheap used car at a new car dealer. If someone trades in a car in the OP's price range, the dealer won't even bother trying to resell it -- it's just not worth...

    I would say it's more greasy than oily. It doesn't rub in as nicely as Gnatural cream, which used to be my go-to also, but it doesn't melt like Swat or Belly Balm. After a couple of days it gets...

    No thoughts about reducing the population, but Fly-Rid ointment is awesome at keeping gnats out of ears and away from sheath/midline on belly. Works much better than Swat and lasts longer between...

    To go along with this, in my experience herdbound horses often don't see the human as a viable companion/leader. Granted I prefer people-oriented horses, so that makes it easier. My horses are always...

    Rubbing alcohol works just fine. I put it on an unused tack sponge and scrubbed, after about 10-15 seconds it starts coming off.

    There is a towing company in my area called Main Line Hooker Service. The main line is a general term for the expensive/rich western suburbs of Philadelphia, which makes it even funnier.

    I have the Thorowgood endurance saddle, and it's super comfy -- I've done 50-mile endurance rides in it with no seat saver or sheepskin cover. It's similar to an all-purpose saddle, so it wouldn't be...
