    I can't imagine a horse having to stand on two legs. Every horse I ever had acts so put off having to lift one, lol. I can see the appeal of a table. The bending over to trim is what kills me. ...

    I could be a prepper if I weren't completely convinced it will never work. The vast majority of horses aren't well trained enough to ride down the road safely much less pull a load or keep you in...

    Another note on the Irideon breeches - the do stretch with use and become very comfy. Did ride in them the other day and didn't find them miserable even though it was in the 80s. Haven't washed...

    Wow, my uncle has a 40 something mule. Maybe we've got more time than we thought!

    My 6 year old has not trouble balancing with his helmet. He wears it to ride his Shetland Pony. No reason not to teach good habits from the start.

    I've ridden quite a few being sold as fully trained that aren't. That said Sadie is well trained but I required a few lessons to get on the same page with her. She's still got things to learn and...

    While I doubt the trainer could be influenced to change his ways (confrontation would probably just make him sneakier), I think the behavior hurts all the kids. It is awful to be a kid and work your...

    :( We were in Texas last year during the fires. I had to treat my dairy goats with antibiotics. Horses did ok. It was awful to have that in the air.

    That's the kind we have. We don't do alot of trailering, so every time is interesting but not necessarily difficult. We've trailer cross country moves. Unloading is usually easier than loading. ...

    I chooses other because I am not opposed to slaughter in other countries, but totally opposed to slaughter of any US horses. My reason being that our horses are raised and maintained with drugs that...

    Nah, no body's holding anyone's feet to fire making them read those threads. I haven't read one yet.

    I think it gets it wrong more than right for me, lol. I'm always rereading stuff and going Whaaaat?! I know I didn't type that. I don't think I've even used some of the words it comes up with.

    I'd like to learn to drive. I could do that with a Morgan and a Shetland too though. I like Haflingers. Would like to try one some day.
  16. Well, was the horse not maintaining the circle...

    Well, was the horse not maintaining the circle size? That's usually what gets me tangled. (We shouldn't have to be constantly adjusting the rope.) If so, practice smaller circles, even with a long...

    I have trouble with it. I have small hands. I can barely hold a whip and reins at the same time riding. I do not know why they don't make a retractable lunge line like the retractable dog leeshes....

    My Aunt was riding a mule and that happened. He bucked and, she broke her neck and her back :( I'm an arena girl. I've enjoyed trail riding before, but I'm not real brave.

    I was thinking about it. There are difference circumstances for sales - a trainer who tunes up horses and sells them for profit or a breeder probably (should) see it as a business transaction and...

    Oh please, alot of devices people use change words. My iPad does it all the time.

    I have owned four horses. My QH Ace I would never have sold. I *was* his forever home, and if I needed something different, I would have just taken on another horse. He was special to me. He died...

    This website is really neat to look through. Lots of photos of foundation quarter horses? This is the sire of Lucky I believe.

    Exactly. I'd add never buy (or accept a freebie) from a person that demands updates. I've been to that rodeo. It's nice to send updates to previous owners, but it is a curtesy. Once an animal...

    I did it the opposite way. I picked my trainer cause I bought her horse, and I thought she had done a good job training her.

    I hate orange, and don't usually like people that like it, lol. The painting does remind me of a confederate flag and the horse seems dead. Those throw pillows are awful, and they look new to me. ...
