    Ironwood, we time our fecals for our pastured horses with a farrier visit. The horses come up in stalls for a few hours and then we collect the samples and drop them off at the lab. Also, you don't...

    Well, this is a bit of a tedious thread to read, so I skipped ahead after the first page or so.

    Doubless, whatever happened (sorry I don't fully understand it), I still don't think you went wrong...

    I have a pair of DerDaus...I use them only for showing. They are lovely, but are the most delicate pair of tall boots I have owned. I have not had any problems with them yet, but I care for them...

    It's hard to complain about judging without coming across as sour grapes. But I think it is interesting to sit very close to where the judges are sitting and evaluate trips on your own and compare...

    You aren't the only person to own a horse with issues like what you describe. There are plenty of horses out there that require a higher level of handling for most or all of their lifetimes for...

    It's a really tough business for sure. Overall my business is "successful" but over the years I have gotten better at analyzing the numbers and regular stall boarders who don't use training or layup...

    paw, if it makes you feel any better, I do own an iron and a can of starch, but stock ties are the ONLY thing I iron. Ever.

    I really haven't seen too many four folds in the hunter ring. I'm definitely not saying a four fold would be wrong, because I agree that they tie up nicely. My reasons are this: Most horse shows are...

    Typically when you buy a foal in utero or as a suckling, you are buying for a reduced price because you are accepting a lot more risk than if you bought that same horse a as a weanling, yearling,...

    Sidesaddle, I'm all for the four fold stock ties--they are lovely and I also prefer them for hunting. But I wouldn't recommend them for the hunter ring, and probably also not for a person that...

    FWIW, I've never been able to hire a decent barn worker (or any barn worker) for minimum wage. That's not realistic. Workmans comp adds 15-20% on to that cost. Obviously payroll taxes add to that as...

    You vetted the colt to your satisfaction and then purchased him with a payment plan (deposit plus second payment). As far as I can tell, as soon as you made the first payment the foal was your...

    Generally a slightly wider, shaped collar and a longer overall stock tie gives a better look. Sorry, but a proper stock tie is generally cotton and should be laundered and ironed/starched to look its...

    Looks like a very cute friendship to me, loved the pictures! However, I don't think that it is reasonable to push your BO to install a stall guard, metal/mesh or otherwise, if they have already said...

    I want to know where this mystical barn is that never had any horses that didn't want to be caught, never had injured horses, and never had fly masks lost in the field.

    Some horses just aren't--and won't ever be--kid friendly on the ground. Yes, by all means get a vet involved and make sure there isn't an endocrine problem. It may be that progesterone would be...

    In general I would advise against paying by the job. That is a disincentive to bother with/take care of extra things that come up all the time in caring for horses. Also, it may be an incentive to...

    When considering whether or not to spend $700 on a local show I think there are a few things to consider. That amount of money might be worthwhile if going to the show motivates you to bring your...
