    Depends too how much $ and effort went into building that arena. I can guarantee that mine will never be used for turnout. I can ride and lunge without anyone digging into the base, but just having a...

    I've boarded at places that couldn't do blanket changes or even put on fly masks because that was too much work for the staff, yet soaking feed like this has never been a problem. I would just talk...

    Well basil is pretty tasty, so I can't blame them.;) Goes to show that deer don't read the book on what they will and won't browse. I tried leaving the "deer resistant" tag on some of the things I...

    Say no to butterfly bushes. They are horribly invasive, at least here in the Northwest, and I rue the day we planted one as we now have them popping up everywhere. I don't think they even sell them...

    I showed QHs in the 80s and I do think that the HUS has evolved from what was basically western riding in english tack back then, at least from what I have seen in reviewing show videos and such now....

    I guess I'm not sure why you haven't done blood work to determine if the horse really is IR? It won't harm him, I'm suppose, to treat him like he is, but if it were me, I'd want to know. And if IR,...

    I've found that feeding whole flax worked just as well as ground. However, I do grind mine every day only because I got tired of the flax seeds adhering to every surface (pan, or if spilled on the...

    It is often possible to control weeds and such on gravel areas by just dragging regularly with a harrow. You might have to spray to get a neglected area under control initially, but dragging can do a...

    I'm surprised no one has answered, so I'll dive in, even though my Prestige was a close contact, not dressage. I had a calfskin covered Hunter D Classic that was in great shape when I sold it this...

    Given all the variables, you would probably be better off calling an arena builder in your area to get some ballpark numbers. Your terrain, drainage, climate, and material availability will influence...
  12. Not knowing how the previous paint job was...

    Not knowing how the previous paint job was prepped or what paint was used or how well applied, it is hard to say what is to blame for the failure. It does mean having to do more prep work this time...

    The newer latex paints are so good, I don't think you need to go oil based anymore. I use exterior latex in gloss or semi-gloss and am also a fan of the Behr stuff (and checking the Home Depot and...

    I also liked Guenter's music and thought it went well with the horse, but my favorite, music wise, is Jessica and Cardi's. But I'm biased.;) It just suits him so well.

    Have to say that I really...

    The Ogilvy baby pad is not as thick as these Dover pads, but also has a bit more weight than the Dover baby pads I've tried in the past (the Dover baby pads are really thin as I recall). Like someone...
  17. Repeating flexions on the same day is not a good...

    Repeating flexions on the same day is not a good idea. Maybe doing one more time, and even then, the vet will typically hold a little less than the first time. Flexions can be cumulative, so a horse...

    Anyone objecting to the use of drugs manufactured outside the US should take a look at Gastrogard/Ulcergard boxes -- manufactured in Brazil.

    As others have said, do be sure of zoning and such restrictions. I am in WA State as well. Setbacks vary by county (here, it is 25' from the property lines between neighbors and something else from...
  20. A young horse with no hard use should have fairly...

    A young horse with no hard use should have fairly decent flexions, IMO. Saying the horse didn't pass the flexion portion doesn't tell me if there was just one joint that had an issue, or all of them,...

    Mine is strapless.

    Re/"pop rocks" the name - someone here on COTH originally described the meds as resembling blue kitty litter, and I always preferred that description. For some reason, it never caught on.;)

    I have one and I do like it. No problems with slipping for me. It has held up well over many, many washings.

    I read the OP to indicate that turnout was essential for this particular horse and that could be one thing that will quickly weed out the choices up here. Many barns/programs do not provide much...

    For my bell boot eaters, I had to give up. They only get Velcro boots put on for turn out in the bigger fields or when riding.

    I boarded where the neighbor horse would reach under the fence and...
