    Generally, as they...shrink...you end up wearing them over breeches anyway since you can't get them zipped over regular weight jeans.

    If they are a good fit over regular weight jeans, they may be...

    Maybe the Coggins is so they know a vet looked at the described horse, sort of a verification??? Weird. Care to share what registry?

    There are shady vets out there, if you stay in the business long enough, you'll run into one. You, know, the ones the sellers demand you use yet don't release complete medical records to you-vet...

    Well said.

    I usually gift a bottle of good wine ( to put in one of the horse shoe holders:D) or a restaurant gift card to something like Lone Star or Outback-nice but not stupid expensive and...

    There was enough specific location and personal info about OP given to make it pretty easy to figure it out if somebody wanted to alert the BM she was a cyber star on a horse board. This thread might...

    Most unethical for sure if they own the horse and you deal directly with them and they did nothing to help you find it.

    Mine were actually Journeymans too. Figured somebody would come up with a name that rang a bell. Mine were smooth side, navy, light blue piping trim around the top belt and yoke and down the side,...

    You don't have to wait until they are bone racks or go down and can't get up- Thats for us because we can't let go, not for them when they have to deal with a failing body without understanding why....

    Depending on where OP lives, it may not be worth it to buy anything special. Apparently it's the cold weather and standing for a few days, not really a true cold backed horse. Don't think OP has the...

    If OP had indicated horse was on daily Meds given in the grain? I am sure the advice would have been different. Although a black and white situation may be easier to deal with, there are lots of...

    In olden days horses that worked in harness, drafts, coach horses or fancy steppers, had their tails docked to keep them out of the harness straps. Even today Hackneys are shown docked.

    Its quite...

    Yes, it was him, a cow and swine guy, or a 2 hour drive to a clinic. The horse was not expensive. And it was my idea to just use him, not sellers demand or even suggestion. Just a "look see" exam...

    Check with your local fire departments, especially if they are volunteers. A donation to their station fund is usually pretty reasonable and money well spent. I don't know if you'd need to go thru...

    In my world, we had family oriented barn parties after the last class in the barn aisles or at the campground at KHP. Occasionally a client would host a late afternoon/early evening party at their...

    Never did it for IV, 3 days for IA and would assume it refers to that procedure, not just the shot. Or it's a CYA on the part of the drug company to cover any possible reaction like the 10 pages of...

    I never see too many horses actually shivering, never have. I hope the BO is exaggerating a mite here if she's got 4 horses shivering at 50f. Or they are sick.

    Here, last Monday or Tuesday, it was...

    Would OP care to give an idea of her location and what region she can easily look within? Can make a 10k difference in the asking price, easy...and remember most do not sell at advertised prices.

    Importing a horse is going to cost you more like 15k for a gelding. Then figure 10-15k Euros to buy it. So you are into it 25-30k.

    At least over in H/J land, they come off the plane greener then...

    Heck, I won a bridle as a year end award, never heard of the manufacturer, OK quality, not great. Showed AA level 3' Hunters in it for 5 years.

    Win win for both of you. Mare does have a lot of promise under the right rider and it takes a real horsemen to admit they may not be that rider and move on.

    Love to keep track of this one, keep us...

    That's all all true but when you are solely dependent on volunteers? Not necessarily what you get to work with. Also have problems with good volunteers who stop to go watch their kid and pull out...
