    EventerAJ addressed most of your questions quite well, I just want to add that in my experience way out here in Area 7, land of perpetual rain and thus mud... while one can certainly teach a horse to...

    Do you have access to Triple Crown? I've had the best luck with TC Senior and alfalfa (my 17h TB is now overweight and needs a diet!). Most people get a little bug-eyed when I tell them I feed free...

    Shoeing for ringbone?

    I would love to hear shoeing/trimming techniques that you have used successfully with ringbone. I realize it can be location dependant but for now I'd like to hear about both - trim of the foot,...

    A stroke of luck!

    Thanks to the reg. number, I was able to contact the OldNA registry. He is still in the breeder's name according to their records, his correct name is Fledermous and if the...

    The mare does not appear on Allbreed, and the progeny list on Horsetelex for Frohwind does not list this gelding anywhere. I'd be happy to add him, just needed to know the dam's info. The TB mare...

    I apologize, I guess I assumed nearly everyone on this board knew what OldNA stood for, it is the common abbreviation for the Oldenburg North America registry (as opposed to the German Oldenburg...

    Help me find a mare's pedigree please?

    Trying to find info on the dam of a horse I brought home yesterday. His name is Fledermaus, by Frohwind out of Doo Rite By All. Registered with OldNA. I can't find any information on the mare at all....

    The goal with exfoliating is to remove the skin BEFORE it causes the bumps. I scrub my legs with a loofah pre-shave AND post shave, and even if I don't shave I give them a good scrubbing at least...

    I have had two professional waxes in my day. Never again. First one was slightly less traumatizing, but the second? Ooh boy. Missing skin, and not just on the outer skin area. The whole area was...

    7.3's can be found up to 2003.5 - it's rare to see an 03 with one though, IME.

    SO Heinz is a pro mechanic, works on diesels all the time, both road and farm vehicles and while he prefers his gas...

    From the posts I've read of those who contacted the owner, she was evicted and has been TRYING to find the horse a new home with no luck for a while now. He's older, mid twenties if I recall...

    Somewhere out here (I think it might be in the Archives by now) there is an epic horse show food thread full of recipes.

    One idea that I like is those pinwheel roll up/wrap things - you can put...

    Well, looking purely at the numbers, Pennfield's Ultra Performance has lower protein (12% instead of 14%) and fat (10% instead of 12%) with similar fiber (15% instead of 16%). Not sure if that's low...

    Is this intentionally directed at me? OP is the one that said she doesn't like conflict.

    It's entirely possible to be direct and concise WITHOUT being rude or harsh. Many so-called grown ups seem...

    Well, you could always just add a good old vit/min supplement. I don't know what you have access to, but there are a ton out there - around here, we even have some formulated by local companies...

    Maybe you didn't intend to sound this way, but it comes across a bit harsh.

    OP says she has her own place, and is letting her "farm help" give lessons to an acquaintance - who asked to use her...

    I love my blanket lady. She picks up the dirties, delivers them back 2 weeks later clean.

    I sent with her two medium weight turnouts and one heavy this spring. None I paid more than $60 for, one...

    There is a way to fix this. It's not particularly hard, but it's time consuming, and it doesn't sound like you have the time or maybe even the timing to know when to push and when to back off...

    He's been naked since early spring, and he was on the thinner side at that point. He's packed the pounds back on since. I will...

    And even with WB registry approval, you may not find a lot of takers unless she is BIG, flashy, a superb mover, AND well bred (for a sporthorse, not for a racing TB) with a fantastic temperament.

    Doh! Don't know why I didn't think to check there. Although if I have to start buying him "Big Fellas" clothes, he might end up with a complex. He's a TB... he's not supposed to shop in the draft...

    Compressed bales? No heavier than a standard square bale, just compressed down to about 1/3 the size. We have some grown locally and their bales are 60-70lb cubes. This is the stuff they shrinkwrap...
