    Have her checked for Lymes. We've had a couple of horses over the past few years who had no fever or lethargy, only stumbling during rides. A round of doxy and they were back to being surefooted.

    See the many, many threads here on COTH about self-proclaimed riding experts whose experience consists of a beach ride once, twenty years ago. You have to ask a lot of questions. Assuming they pass...

    I see absolutely nothing wrong with getting 'fixer-uppers' and doing your own work. There are entire industries (DIY home improvement, anyone?) and enormously popular TV channels (HGTV) dedicated to...

    This. Particularly the more intelligent breeds. They quickly engage in 'social climbing' and the poor beginner will lose the upper hand. In my chosen breed there are many folks looking for large,...

    I'm owned by a chestnut mare. It's not a sneer, it's a look of combined disdain and repugnance. Unless we are talking about food. Then I get the horse equivalent of a game show contestant offered a...

  13. Anybody heard of this auction group -- Carolina Horse Company?

    They are running an online auction. A paso fino that no-saled last weekend turned up at Cranbury today with no apparent change in ownership. A quick look at the CHC website shows NJ and NY ownership...

    Yeah, I got that from your first post. Not sure what level of staff you are hiring for, although clearly your corporate culture prizes obedience. I also suspect part of your screening process...
