    I complain about how much my 17 hand TB eats, too, but I suck it up and give him what he needs. :D It takes twice as much to maintain him as it does my other OTTB. If you're willing to pay for more...

    I have used that type of light in a run in shed and it is quite bright. You would want to position it so that it is above you rather than eye level. I pointed at the shed ceiling so the light was...

    Is he sweating? My TB with anhidrosis has a really dull, flaky coat despite a cup of flax and 1/2 cup of Healthy Coat daily. My other TB also gets flax and he has some bleaching from the sun, but...

    I haven't done it, but have heard that it is great fun! Jumps are optional on hunter paces so you can go around them or over at your pleasure. Now I'm tempted to go, but it's a looonnnggg drive for...

    I can only speak to my particular hunt, but we are usually out for 3-4 hours. Miles covered varies between days and fixtures - 6 or so at a minimum and we've done 20 plus on faster days. We hunt...

    Thanks all! You just made my husband very happy! My boys spend nights inside most of the winter and a few hours a day in the hottest weather, so average about 60-65% of their time out. They've been...

    My hunt has one for sale if you'd like info on it, I'd be happy to get it for you. At least for this one, I think you need a commercial license and it is TALL. Probably easier to maneuver than a...

    Stalls on concrete

    We are considering options for building a couple of stalls to use in inclement weather. The easiest/least expensive would be putting a lean to on the back of our existing shop. The stalls would be...

    I've got two and they handle it fine. The first few weeks at our new farm with no neighbor horses, my two were a little nutty, but they settled. There is lots of crying when I'm tacking up, but when...

    He is a 6 year old TB. I'd put on the poor side of body scale - very hard keeper. Unfortunately I do not have a barn, but they are in a very shady paddock. I haven't observed him having increased...

    My friend broke hers midway between elbow and shoulder, but there was no doubt it was broken - complete inability to lift her arm. If you're functioning that well with it, I would guess deep bruising.

    I've had the horse since last November. He did not sweat last summer with previous owner, but he does sweat fall, winter, spring. Sounds very similar to your horse. How do you manage yours? What...

    The non-sweating foxhunting prospect

    I have a lovely horse that appears to be well suited to hunt with exception of the fact he has anhidrosis. I've been trying a variety of remedies with no luck so far. I took him in his first hound...

    Total Saddle Fit half pads

    Has anyone tried one? My ancient shimmable thinline sheepskin pad has begun to disintegrate and that model is no longer available.

    My saddle is admittedly too wide for my TB but the half pad with...

    I get 16/17 mpg without the trailer, but, as my husband would assure anyone, I have a lead foot. Towing it's 11/12. I pull a two horse XL GN Hawk with a dressing room. It handles it fine.

    Very nice horse! He does look tight and sore, but he'll come out of that pretty quickly - quicker with chiro and massage.
