    OP, I get what you are saying, but no matter what the circumstances ultimately animal/livestock owners are liable for the actions of their animals. It doesn't matter that someone else let the horses...

    Put all the money in one account, take out X for savings, then take out similar amounts for each person's hobby/fun. My DH and I started with this, but he soon realized that he cared about other...

    Go and watch your divisions at an A show prior to your actual show date. Look closely at the details--how the horses and riders are turned out, how they enter the ring, how they handle problems in...

    I don't think your desire to see the horse is wrong. But, the problem is you really don't have any standing to act on that wish without an invitation (or permission) from the owner. Its her right not...

    Falling in love with a horse that isn't suitable for the intended purpose is a common problem. It's not discrimination. I have a beautifully bred WB that can't do the hunters, just doesn't have the...

    Lachelle, thanks for sharing the above FB post. I think it adds some clarity to the situation though I think it is plus/minus that it will calm the internet lynch mob.

    Many horses wait on trailers very comfortably and quietly for longer periods of time at trailer in shows, sometimes in the summer. Having a horse on a trailer in the summer is not inherently cruel. I...

    I think you have a very awkward situation on your hands. I agree with others that your best bet is to lock everything up that you possibly can when you are not at the barn. You also may want to just...

    There are some clients that just aren't worth working with. You don't want to make enemies or hurt people's feelings, but it's 100% ok to choose not to work with clients that are not an asset to your...

    The reason for the 30 day notice is so that another horse can be brought in to fill the stall without a lapse in payment, since most of a facility's costs are fixed. For example, I still have to pay...

    Oh, please, for heavens sake just let them know that time slot isn't available any more and fill it with another student.

    Then if they want to schedule another time you can either tell them you...

    Unless you are BNT or a local trainer with your own facility and a good reputation, or an assistant trainer at barn with a very busy lesson schedule, the average pay is probably not enough to live on.

    Why would you buy a Friesian and then clip it, what's the point? :)

    Personally if anything drafty ever comes into my barn it gets its legs clipped pronto. Even horses that fox hunt. To my eye,...

    I'd say this is unacceptable. No barn is perfect, caring for horses involves a lot of important little tasks, but deliberately doing weird things that could endanger a horse is plainly not okay....

    Like it or not, ribbons are better. I'm not even a part of this scene and I can tell you that ribbons are the way to go. A) braids and ribbons look better on a kid than a hairnet, and B) for...

    I feel for you because I can't stand the suspense with foaling mares, drives me nuts. I'm not a vet, but I'd definitely be giving domperidone. Though I think you could get it cheaper, I pay about...

    I think it would be very useful if you practiced loading/unloading with your yearling and took him for a few short trips ahead of time. Depending on his personality, it may or may not be useful to...

    Stop with the Facebook communication. Some people like to keep their "friends" lists very short and are very cautious about anyone they don't really know on the internet. I think it is a much better...

    Well, sure. Mainly I don't want to waste my time dealing with a dishonest or shady seller. If someone has that reputation or if what they are saying doesn't add up, or they won't disclose information...

    Please, make the horse a gelding. It is completely unrealistic to think of a boarding barn--even a breed barn--having a stallion that "all the kids" are allowed to touch, let alone ride and fall in...

    I didn't mean to be insulting. Building farm structures isn't exactly cheap and it would be a shame to spend a lot of money building something that doesn't work or predisposes to expensive injuries....

    If you have a safe and appropriate trailer, young foals travel remarkably well. Assuming temperatures were reasonable I see no reason not to ship a foal that distance to an inspection. Obviously have...

    Oh, no, I wouldn't hand over any money unless I was ready to buy a horse. I think that it would be an odd thing to do and I think it could complicate matters. IMO, it's always best to keep horse...

    Yes, this is blatantly ridiculous. I would just respond ONE time saying "No, I'm sorry but those costs are your responsibility" and then refuse to engage further. The potential buyer has no basis...
