    Not any more

    As your age and life intrudes, you'll start to find out what a dear friend of mine told me years ago. There are too many nice horses to deal with one that isn't. Somewhere, there is someone who will...

    Why is he not in a hospital or somewhere he can get appropriate care and medication? "Managing" means make sure he is somewhere that professionals can deal with his symptoms and behavior. ...

    agreed Calvincrowe. My thinking has always been if you are going to eat it, then by all means kill it (barn vermin excepted;)) but if you're just going to stuff the thing and mount it on the wall so...
  4. Pretty sure that horse has had other horses on either side of him before.

    And that is something that you either get done ahead of time or grovel and get someone to change places with you. If it was that important, and I found an end stall without a stallion in it, I'd...

    His saddles are great. Got mine from him over ten years ago. First time I rode in it I cried, it's that nice. When he sent his girl to measure my horse (he'd already measured me) he thought she'd...

    I didn't see a "bad read" from the horse, even on the big fence, he knew where his feet were, and pushed off the fence. The trouble with the corner fence, which he went straight over, was he tried to...

    Outriders. Usually members of a hunt. Used for crowd control or to catch a runaway. And basic goodwill.

    If he's that nice and that mannerly, I'd leave him entire. It's easy to geld one, and would likely not discourage anyone that was a serious buyer. If his temperament is that nice as a stallion,...

    I throw hay. Into the feeder, over the stall front, over the fence. I drop grain. Into the feed tubs, where the horses toss it wherever while they're trying to figure out who got the most. So...

    My sister just had one. She too, is claustrophobic. Meds were not an option, but me sitting at her head, holding her hand was. I simply vowed to pull her out, bare ass naked if need be, the second...

    Ok, I'm not trying to rain on your parade, but your dream is a:really lofty and b: very broad. You want to ride and compete internationally in dressage at GP, ok, you want to learn to jump and event...
  12. Not sure but

    She looks a lot like the girl that was working for Gloria when I was down there last year. Knows her stuff. Good horses. A lot for them to put up with.

    It depends.

    If you have no intention of showing, and probably having only another person with you, try to find a used marathon carriage. There are many advantages, and few disadvantages. The wedge seat on mine...

    If you go to Suzy Staffords website you'll see she has one painted and it's lovely

    Stafford Carriage Driving. I am by no means a turnout expert, however, I agree with what you've said. I'm going to presume your harness is black with stainless (I dislike polish brass as well). ...

    Save the stud fee

    Sounds like she needs a very good, very patient trainer. You are not that person. Send he to someone that has a good reputation for helping nervous horses relax under saddle. In front of the leg...

    I'm speechless.

    OP, when God rained down stupid, he forgot to give you an umbrella.

    Just so you know, CARFAX is being sued because, it proclaimed to know everything about all cars. Guess what? It doesn't. If I back my car into a light pole and take it to the local body shop and...

    Oh my dear..

    I giggled when you said "now that I'm getting older" then said you were late 20's. I have boots older than you that I still wear.

    It doesn't sound crazy to want to rent a barn, hire the ideal...

    Any other place you can contain him besides a crate?

    I'd opt for that. If not, then ask him to get in the crate, and don't latch the door. Let him back out. Rinse, repeat. Get the biggest crate for him you can find. He may feel, because of his...

    Oh yes. Yes I do. The dream farm is still a dream. A cold, frigid, 18* dream, but nothing replaces seeing their furry little faces and hearing the "morning mom" whickers before daylight.

  23. They're in their 30's. You don't say how old you are

    But I'll assume younger. As long as it doesn't get physical, just ignore them. Perfect a blank stare. Do not attempt to educate them on anything, as they are clearly either too stupid to learn or...
