    What impressed me most about American Pharoah today was how calm and focused he was in the paddock. He was all business. What an amazing horse.

    I'm still making observations so I haven't made a final determination how it is working for me.

    One thing I can say is that it offers an alternative for folks who are sensitive or even allergic...

    OP, how are you applying the fly spray? Some horses get skin reactions when the fly spray is applied against the coat, or applied with a rag and rubbed in. With either of those methods, what is...

    Yup. Most of the ones I've seen are about that. The only thing I've seen tha tis drastically different is stuff like equispot. Not a fly spray though, but liquid for application every 2 weeks.

    3) gloves: ~$0.50/pair(if you buy a big box)

    My horse disliked having his sheath area touched, so I worked with...

    I don't think the American Dental Association will need to do anything about this guy. I imagine his practice is already toast.

    I agree. For that reason I prefer to spend my time and $$ where it will make a different for the average amateur trying to make a go of it in an expensive sport. I like to spend a lot of time...

    I've ridden in a lot of different saddles, and found Schleese to be a disappointment. I ordered a custom saddle for them for my previous horse and it was the WORST fit I've ever seen on a horse. No...

    Dear mom,

    Thank you for the new toys. I love my squeaky squirrel toy! I am so sorry that I broke the squeaky thing the first day. I just got excited and played with it too hard.

    This isn't the first time he's had issues with his neighbors. The first time he had disputes I thought "ego problem" for not just him but the neighbors. I no longer watch his show.lol.

    Nice farm, but that's a lot of money for board. I know that area is very expensive, but there are plenty of places in NJ where one can be in full training board at very nice farms for about that.

    Sounds like the horse has respect issues and needs to have a CTJ meeting. OP, do you have access to a round pen? For some horses, work in the round pen is a good place to start if you feel safe. If...

    But is it for you to decide who is stupid and who isn't?

    There are plenty of folks who just mind their own business and don't stir the pot if people have different opinion be belief system.

    My feeling is that if you don't like someone's beliefs then just keep your mouth shut about it. There is no need to belittle people.

    1) Some horses are very good at their jobs, but want to be ridden a very specific way or they shut down. For some horses that means acting out and doing unauthorized...

    I'd contact the nearest chapter of CANTER and see if they have worked with anyone at that track. That's probably the best place to start.
