    And a huge 3rd for Pisano's! They saved a pair that a local cobbler absolutely butchered. I thought they were a lost cause. $115 later I had them shipped back, perfectly repaired, zippers...

    You know, I've been thinking a lot about this lately. I do wonder if his moments where he seems to "mentally check out" are due to chronic pain. While he does seem content now (not losing weight,...

    Despite how it may have come across, I am an Arabian horse admirer, and this was the 3rd saddleseat horse I've owned.

    If it weren't for his significant fetlock x-rays, I'd definitely give...

    Well, he's been at the retirement farm for about a week now and things are going remarkably well. I hesitated to post an update because I don't want to jinx it, but I figured there might be a few...

    He did go on 24 hour turnout initially. In retrospect it probably wasn't the best idea, but he wasn't freaking out about it the first month. He has a stall attached to his turnout and he could go...

    Still reading and thinking. I think some inaccurate conclusions have been drawn, probably my fault for not sharing every single detail. I did not buy the house against the advice of several people....

    I appreciate every post, even the sharply worded ones. I'm still considering options. Even though my home is not the right place for him, I'm not in such a hurry to be rid of him that I'm willing...

    My husband told me not to. I wish I had listened.

    I honestly felt sorry for the horse. He wound up on the back burner because his owner had multiple horses. Not to start a debate about...

    He does have some maintenance issues in addition to his mental issues. While he is currently sound, it does require maintenance and that is another can of worms.

    For what it is worth, I don't feel like he is malicious or intentionally trying to hurt anyone (although he did nip at me once). He just completely loses his $hit at times.

    Does anyone have a horse they hate?

    I thought about posting under an alter but I'm just going to spill it. I hate one of my horses. Well, maybe not hate, but I dislike him strongly.

    Now, I'm not going to ship him off to...
