    I am like this as well. I have one horse, an 11-year-old TB gelding, and he has quite a wardrobe, though that is partly because he can wear some of my old mare's stuff too. I try my best to make my...
  2. I have a pair of wide Kanyons that have a pretty...

    I have a pair of wide Kanyons that have a pretty generous foot. I am not quite a true wide, and the calf isn't quite big enough for me (mine are about 16.5" right now) but the foot is fine. So that's...
  3. This is exactly what I'm wondering, particularly...

    This is exactly what I'm wondering, particularly given the smell. I am wondering given where the sheepskin is peeling off if it was stored in such a way that the edges got too dry/were exposed to...
  4. Used saddle pad not as described. WWYD?

    I've had some decent luck buying gently used items on several FB groups. I bought a sheepskin saddle pad recently and received it yesterday. I was in a hurry and didn't look over it thoroughly, but...

    Yes. I have an Amigo Bravo medium weight that will take the liners. So far it's held up just fine, and my guy thinks it is great fun to find the grossest, muckiest place in the field to roll ......

    This doesn't sound like a straightforward case of convenience euthanasia. Also, the bar is lower with horses than small animals simply due to the resources that their proper care commands. Most...

    Set up a small pen and put his only source of water in it. He'll go in when he gets thirsty, and that's where he needs to live until he's less feral.

    Do make your initial interactions with him...

    Yuck. I briefly rode at a barn whose standard of care was like this, and it was awful. I was exchanging rides for barnwork, and the BO chastised me for being too generous with the shavings. She would...

    Disclaimer: I am not a saddle fitter. I am friends with one (who's certified), and I've done some research on my own to fit my two horses.

    If I were you, I would start looking at saddles with...

    Thanks for the compliment on Rory. I absolutely love that horse. :)

    I really like fancy stitching; I guess it's a holdover from my days in the hunter ring, haha. I could see us doing a beaded...
  11. Unique dressage bridles for the refined, petite head?

    My lovely OTTB has requested a bridle that actually matches his saddle for Christmas. (He has strong opinions about these things ... and, well, pretty much all other things too. :lol: ) I said I'd...
  12. It's kind of a long shot, but do a bit of...

    It's kind of a long shot, but do a bit of research on selenium deficiency symptoms and consider testing her selenium levels and supplementing with selenium and vitamin E if she's low (or even on the...
  13. Explain to me this, please: laces v. zipper

    Why are there so many winter boots out there (not just paddock boots) with laces?! I'm in North Carolina, so while we have winter, it's not anything like the winter that some of y'all deal with.

    Given your location, I wonder if I know this trainer. I had a similar problem with a former trainer I used, but as I wasn't the copyright holder for the photo, I didn't have any recourse. (Copyright...

    OP, are you really OK with this? You get one wild, wonderful, crazy life. Is this the kind of person you want to spend it with?

    You are worth so much more than your money. Be sure that you're...
  16. Thanks, everyone. I'd entertained the idea of...

    Thanks, everyone. I'd entertained the idea of trying to work something out with the property owner a few months ago, but I passed because I wasn't interested in paying full rent (not discounted at...

    As capable as you sound, I am sure you've already thought about this, but you may want to closely examine (or re-examine) his diet and make sure there's nothing he's eating (or missing from his diet)...

    I already have a full-time job, but I work from home most of the time. The owner told me what the property had been renting for, and I decided I wanted additional input from others who may have been...
  19. I am not the owner. I am undecided about being...

    I am not the owner. I am undecided about being the prospective tenant. ;)
  20. Hmmm. Interesting horse-farm living situation. WWYD?

    Horse farm owner is looking for tenant for house on property. House is 2bd/2ba, and tenant would be responsible for the care of the four horses on the property and the property maintenance. Property...

    Help! Dog ate a bar of dark chocolate

    Our 9-year-old hound/GR mix ate about 3 ounces of dark chocolate (67% cacao) this evening at about 6. He weighs just under 60 lbs. and seems fine thus far.

    Husband is quite upset, so I am hoping...
  22. Best summer/schooling helmet for a round head?

    Budget is $100. I have an IRH XR9 (size 7) now that fits well and is comfortable, but it has no ventilation and is super hot. I've been riding in a five-year-old Tipperary Sportage (size M), but it's...

    An OTTB can absolutely be fine for your first horse. The key is finding the right OTTB. There are some that are super spicy, very green, not very trainable. Then there are others, like the one I...
  24. Where would I go to get halter plate put on halter?

    I ordered a plate for my new OTTB to replace the existing plate on his halter. The thing is, it comes with the copper nails that you have to hammer down, and I know better than to try and put that on...

    Oh hell no am I doing this myself! I can sew, but not nearly well enough to do this right. It will be going to an equine clothes maker if I have enough fabric and can afford to do it. :)
