    Well, are they dealing with "incurable and excessive suffering"? If not, then no.

    If a horse needs daily pain meds, it is clearly suffering to some extent. The vet and owner SHOULD have a...

    I euthanized a three year old pony a few years ago, so I know what you are going through.

    It was a difficult decision to make, and a huge relief once it was made.

    What helped me make the...

    "Aren't you?"

    "I'm testing whether or not you can teach an old dog new tricks."

    "Yes. Say, how did that continuing education course you took last week/month/whatever go for you?"

    I almost always have one on me. Even if there are others in the arena, you never know when something will go wrong -- better for someone to have a phone on hand than to have to run back to the barn...

    Disconnect. My company encourages it. Even my branch manager is out of pocket a few weeks a year.

    A QH crossed with a draft would be a lukewarmblood.

    And a QH crossed with a TB would be a mediumwarmblood.

    I don't know. And neither do you.

    That's my point. There is more than one possible explanation for the scenario, and they don't all involve assuming the worst of the seller.

    It's great that you...

    It IS on the table. It's in the ad.

    I didn't xray my horse when I bought him. I wouldn't xray him before selling him. An extensive PPE could turn up all sorts of things that I don't know. I'm...

    Unless the seller had had this horse its entire life, possibly the seller didn't even know until some other buyer did a PPE/xrays. At which point the seller updates the ad and has no reason to tell...

    I'd start with a vet, because excessive tripping isn't normal.

    Then I'd take some lessons with a really, really competent instructor, because it is extremely odd to me that engagement would put a...

    I agree that the vast, vast majority of vets are ethical (and over worked, under paid, and under appreciated). But I can think of two relatively local situations in the last year where vets have done...

    Maybe not that hungry just to perform a surgery, but certainly you can find vets who will do unnecessary surgery so owners can win ribbons.

    Just look up cosmetic surgery on Arabian horses -- David...

    My first horse did much better with turnout and more exercise, although things like cold meant he could have good days and bad days.

    He did his best when he had more advanced riders work him...

    In Feb, I ordered some Wintec webbers from them because the pictures on the site looked (to me) like the holes were punched all the way through and not the stupid design where there's a smooth front...

    I had a 4Star with a padded chain that was the full width of the trailer, so they are out there. You could probably also make your own with cut-to-fit chain and either pad it either two or three...

    I would only do a personal, on-location shoot if it was some sort of package where the photographer spends X amount of time and I get X (minimum) photos on a CD at the end.

    This way the...

    You can buy a test from Horsemen's Lab.

    They send you the materials you need to collect the sample, you mail it to them, they give you the results.

    No vet or special equipment required.

    I never even got on.

    Tried to hop on mare bareback. Using a mounting block. Swung my right leg up. Left leg slipped off the block. Ended up sitting in the dirt while my mare refused to look at me....

    I'm not sure why you are trying yourself up in knots over a guy you've never had a problem with and who isn't even taking care of your cats.

    Generally, if Person A and only Person A has a problem...

    Current gelding:

    Dear World, Today I found 18 edible things and 1,857 things that do not appear to be edible. This ratio seems off to me. Does it seem wrong to you? Let's try again tomorrow....

    Nope. Heck, you don't even have to buy the items at the store any more before you abuse the return policies.

    You can buy an item used, decide it doesn't fit, exchange it for new items at the same...

    Bah. Amateur wild animals.

    Binky the Polar Bear knew how to take care of idiot trespassers.

    And Anchorage/Alaska made that bear a hero for it, too.

    Is it a Dressage ad?

    Sound for schooling upper level movements does not mean it's sound to compete upper level. It may be capable of doing things individually but not stringing them together in a...

    I agree email is probably more appropriate than FB. There are plenty of people that limit their FB usage and are just not interested in connecting with total strangers on it.
