    I don't think he's getting enough grain to cover his nutritional needs. Three cups total am/pm is very little.

    You need to look at grain by weight, rather than by volume. However, a quart of most...

    Use alfalfa pellets (don't need to be soaked), whole flax seed (much less costly than chia) and Purina Amplify as a substitute for the oil.

    I'll play.

    Last year I was riding a friend's horse while mine was recovering from a ligament injury. My friend wanted the horse to try foxhunting and asked me to help sell her.

    Horse is a mare...

    I would also try a very soft bit that encourages your horse to take more of a connection. My Trakehner had been worked incorrectly in draw reins and would float behind the bit. I found that either a...

    It will work provided your find the right people. Our co-op is going strong after 13 or 14 years and we've only had to vote someone off the island once.

    At our barn, we buy hay together and split...

    I would not insist on a trainer, although I understand why you would want to. I always go and ride the horse first -- maybe have someone video the ride -- before I bring a trainer.

    I agree that...

    I hunt in front boots since my horse caught his check ligament galloping in his pasture. If you have any concerns about your horse interfering, that should be fine.

    Definitely use a breast plate....

    I get audiobooks from my library. Download them right from the library site. Almost every library system has them now (and digital books, too).

    Audible also has LOTS of sales and a daily bargain...

    If someone offered me that much for a horse, I'd probably sell.

    However, on your earlier post you wrote: "you'll have to pry him out of my cold, dead hands" which makes it seem like you are really...

    I have had several OTTBs and restarted a couple for a rescue so they could be adopted. Some are easier than others, but of the last five or six I've had, only one would have been suitable for someone...

    Not a deal breaker for me but more territorial than crazy.

    My OTTB came to me as a weaver and cribber. The first night in a stall he rubbed his neck bloody weaving over the dutch door.

    Luckily,...

    It's important when looked at in the overall diet to understand that hay stretcher pellets are not long-stem forage so cannot be a complete hay replacement. Hay cubes and beet pulp are considered...

    Bottom line? You can't just have the ownership of the horse signed over to you. It doesn't matter that you've been paying for his care. The owner didn't ask you to do it and there was no agreement...

    For a long time I fed a ration balancer along with either beet pulp or soaked cubes and it worked fine. I also feed Flax, but I do that anyway.

    Before jumping on the supplement bandwagon you might want to talk to an equine nutritionist.

    Many years ago I had someone come to my barn and look at my whole "package" -- hay, grain, supplements....

    $3.36/day :eek:

    I feed a digestive supplement because it does help my horse hold his weight. I either feed SmartDigest or HorseTech's GutWerks. I fed SmartDigest ultra when my horse was on Doxy...

    I think that sending a horse on trial is risky but there are some situations where it is what will make the sale. In those cases i would:

    - have the PPE done before the horse leaves your barn so...

    Given that you have so many potential buyers, I would stick to your guns and not let the horse go on trial.

    I have, in the past, let one of my horses go on trial and it worked out very well -- she...

    Or who buy a particular brand of saddle because everyone else has one.

    Or who have no access to good saddle fitters.

    Or are convinced by the saddle-selling rep that they need a custom saddle.

    How well do you know the vet that did the PPE? And how well does that vet understand what you want to do with the horse.

    The findings fall into a gray area (for me) and there are some vets whose...

    I was having a very hard time getting my mare to accept the bit -- her mouth was gaping, she was fussy with her head, etc. She is a totally different horse with the Peewee bit - Quiet, accepting,...

    I hate the polyester suits - no stretch. I prefer Tyr but make due with Speedo.

    Often on eBay you can find new w/tag suits in old colors for short $.

    I have one horse that loves her Peewee snaffle. She also didn't like other mullen mouth bits . . . You can find them on eBay for about $40.

    Sadly, much of finding the right bit is trial and error....

    It looks great! Isn't it fun to find a saddle that nice for so little?
