    She should learn some better adjectives and nouns. If she feels compelled to use profanity with abandon, then those yellow cards could add up. The English language is full of perfectly wonderful...

    I sell horses that have been consigned to me. You bet that I have talked to the owner about the asking price and I know what it is. I present ALL offers to the owner, even full price offers with...

    As others have said, but your farrier/vet options in the contract. Trust me, if the BO is forgetting, due to medication or other reasons, this is the only way to end of the matter. It is not your...

    We have all been over and over what "failing a PPE" means. The OP accurately represented the horse; something came up on the PPE and the prospective buyer could have stopped right there. The OP...

    I will add as a horse seller, DO NOT LET FRIENDSHIP BLIND YOU to what the vet is saying. I have seen too many "friends" get ripped off in the process of buying. This is a business transaction. If...

    Most pony rides I know do not use bridles, which is a good thing. The horses are lead by halter. If there are reins, they are attached to the halter. I have a GF with a successful pony ride...

    The trainers I have known have extended the training period to cover the number of rides paid for when they are unavailable. The reasons can involve everything from a vacation to be out of town at a...

    I would not offer any kind of self-care. I know that there are responsible people out there, but you get incredibly irresponsible people, too. At least I know that under my board that the horses...

    You need to understand that advertising is hyperbole and it is not based on scientific testing much of the time. I would venture that there are no independent scientific product tests done on...

    What are you doing when riding that is going to be the equivalent the force and impact of dropping a hammer from a 12 inch height? Do you not use a saddle? If you use a saddle shouldn't you be...

    I am surprised to hear about Lift Me Up. They are terrific people and I have placed a Fjord there in the past. Why not go to the PATH center search engine: ...

    I agree we get some stories, but in this case there are many photos of Dobbin and Pathfinder, plus ads for a couple other horses he has for sale. Unfortunately this one is real, I think.

    In answer to questions, it is a Fjord and her sale price is $1200. I assume it includes the Pathfinder pony, but he doesn't seem to troubled by separating them. As a breeder I am always taken aback...

    I would say something to the vet. You should not be quizzed in this manner by the receptionist. And I am sorry for your impending loss. I went through something similar last fall and it really...

    If you could clicker train him, maybe he could help move the poles around.

    Mr. IF says is wasn't just the alcohol. He says he expects that there was a bet or a dare involved.

    Too bad the rider didn't select a Fjord. Even my fjeral ones would have stood there and grazed.
