    We had a mare at the boarding barn years ago that was kicking at her neighbor and managed to get her left hind over the wood divider, having pushed the wire upper panel enough to get the leg wedged....

    Libby, how has driving your donk come along?

    I found with my mini donkeys the most important thing to teach them out of harness was to move forward on cue and without being led. They do not move...

    My guy had EPM at 5; evented successfully afterward and even did A show jumpers years later. I did consider him a "compromised immune system" type horse, and had him on immune boosters anytime I felt...

    I did not used to be "that person", but I have taken to the occasional festooning.

    My poor horse got it just the other day when the vet doped him for his teeth.

    Late, but LOVE this. Almost makes me want to breed a donkey so I could have fun with the foal.

    But then it will be big. And I'd have four donkeys, and then be known as the crazy donkey lady.

    I...

    My then 5 y/o was diagnosed back in the late '90s. We noticed slight toe dragging on downhill slopes, did the blood and spinal (both positive, of course) and treated with dicalzuril. In retrospect it...

    What kind of feed and bedding (that they would have supplied) do you use that costs $500/month per horse?

    Bizarre question

    Obviously horses can dream and move when they are lying down to sleep, but does anyone have any experience with an equine seeming to do this while sleeping standing up?

    My yearling mini donkey was...

    Oh, I'm sure they are plotting "something".

    FYI to all with donkeys, they can get chilled more easily than horses with sedation. There are good actual published articles you could read, or (cue...

    I would think he is safest going out with the older gelding. He may teach him some manners a little more roughly than you would like, but it's probably better than what would happen out with his...

    Once they drop, it's time to chop.

    I find the flexible ones are more comfortable for my knees if I am going to be riding for hours.

    If I am jumping or trying to equitate, I find the standard fillis are much better.

    I think this is kind of two separate problems. As others said, the trainer's job is to train horses. An instructor's job is to train riders. If you have a trainer that you expect to teach you how to...

    It has been around decades, if not centuries (millennia?). The forum didn't make it up ;)

    I certainly heard it as a kid, and that was a *few* decades ago.

    Boyfriend thanks you for the mention... and it's not really that *off course* to have it here. Our equids have a disability of sorts.
