    My research is matching Lootin Kisses as well. This guy is maybe a 3 BCS(not a vet: disclaimer). Poor guy. He appears sound to walk/trot in hand, no obvious pain when palpating anything. Thanks for...

    Thanks-- he is bay, star and snip, rear left sock, front left Pastern white? Appears stiff but sound, pretty low BCS. Dealer says he jumps anything you point him at. Gentle to handle. Tattoo appears...

    I don't know if I have any business posting this here, but there's a tattooed bay TB gelding at New Holland tonight. I feel like there are some resources for these guys to keep them off the kill...

    We pressure wash the barn aisles, and when we strip bedding we scrub with a long-handled scrub brush and vinegar and water to pick up any remaining ammonia odor. Works great, and it's totally worth...

    We have struggled with pelleted bedding for about a year now. We don't need the cushion, as we have stall mattresses, but we need something on top to absorb urine. We can't use sawdust in one of the...

    Ozzy is still available! Now that the snow is melting, he's heading back outside to get more miles under his belt on the trails. He crosses water and obstacles, slogs through snow up to his belly, no...

    Funny you mention that, the rescue has a beautiful registered Oldenburg mare, 7 years old, absolutely fearless and flawless jumper that was picked up as a 3-year-old off the slaughter truck (because...

    Cruiser12, is she a Morgan too? I had someone else tell me he could be their horses' brother. Perhaps he has quite a family lineage out there… sure wish we had his papers so we could see!

    We used to do that bareback off the horses on the ranch, just to try and teach our bodies to roll properly. I think it's a great idea off a short horse, because it's so important to teach your body...

    If you have problems with your jeans riding up out of your boots as you ride, get taller boots and tuck your jeans in. A lot of people seem to be resistant to tucking your jeans in, but it will solve...

    Helmets are a hard sell with most outfitters in my experience… hate to see kids riding without one! Hope it's a great vacation!

    Apparently the beach my friends ride on in Maine requires that you carry out all horse poop. The beach is several miles long, so this is a real pain. They ride English-- where do you carry a full...

    Thanks everyone for the replies! Had no idea about grey horses, and it's interesting, to say the least… I guess in some ways it makes sense about the melanomas.

    It's hard to know at auction where...

  23. Does "Black Dog Syndrome" apply to rescue horses? Do minis not go to slaughter? +more

    I would appreciate some advice from those of you that work with rescue/auction horses on a regular basis. I'm sorry if this sounds naive, but are these things true?

    -Am I understanding correctly...

    I'm not sure where you're going so I don't know if it falls in this category, but I'm going to throw this out there for you: Most dude ranches DO offer riding helmets, and any dude ranch that cares...
