    As a fellow Michigander, I asked myself this question last year and made the executive (but not budget-friendly) decision to try a bunch last winter. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Middleburg fleece-lined...

    Cost is the biggest thing. I'll throw this in here so you can get some other ideas financially...

    Here's what we did this year:

    I would think that if the place is overall great, meaning they are meticulous about the care of the horse that they would also be meticulous about the safety and fire risk. JMO. I don't specifically...

    Heel Bulb... well, what??

    So, when I went out to feed tonight, my mare had some weird looking scabby things on her hind heel bulbs. This does NOT look like "normal" scratches (this is also not a mare that gets scratches on a...

    It's getting scary here in Michigan. I've been to the feed store twice in the last week, and each time grain had gone up. First time it went up 70 cents, and this last time it was up $1/bag. I am...

    My STB gelding would have been a goner a long time ago... he's a cross-tie swinger. He will stand with his head over his stall door and take the cross-tie in his mouth and start swinging it in...

    If you read the Nike descriptive in the link, it's very possible Nike sold this idea to Ariat, or rather Ariat "bought" the design from Nike. It's really a VERY close design in terms of the look,...

    You're not alone...

    All of my horses are color-coordinated. E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. It's a problem. Blankets, brushes, halters, leads, saddle pads, feed buckets... you name it. However, many people...

    Well, considering one of your cons of the slant-load trailer is that you haven't actually seen it yet, my advice would be to go look. If it would suit your needs better than your current trailer, I...

    Anyone else think that was a really high score for Germany considering the ride?? Maybe I just got up too early today, but seems to me the horse broke into the canter twice in the corners before...

    Well, if the horses are continuously grazing on the field, then yes... most of the time they won't eat where poop is. However, if you're rotating the pastures and giving them a couple of months rest...

    Au contraire... I am just SO rich I do not need the tax write-offs. Remember -- we are the 1% that do not get taxed.

    Yep -- that JUST happened. I am now going to bring politics into this thread...

    I love my Kerrits full-seat breeches. They are a little stiff when you first put them on, and make sure you hike them up before you mount, but once you're riding they are the best ones I've tried...
