    OK, so this one has been on my list, but so far no tack shop has offered a trial (including those mentioned here.) ~$400 is a LOT of money to pay for something you can't return...

    The Amish don't want a horse over 11 or 12 years old, which is why some of the purebreds "lose their papers" around that time and get sent to auction for someone else to use up and/or send to...

    I have a 15 degree, more or less, limit in the indoor. At 10, I might hop on on top of the mare's blankets, use a rope halter rather than a bridle, and mosey around for a bit.

    However, I timed...

    I've posted before about my mare's hock sores. She definitely has hock arthritis (diagnosed by X-rays) and now gets hock injections twice a year. The sores seemed to be worse when

    Not one size fits all for horses, either.

    Last fall, there were 5 horses (of 15) who had medium to high fecal counts. My mare was one of them, and I'd already been dosing her with rectal...

    I'm right there with you, OP. Spending a small fortune keeping my mare sound enough to ride, and keeping her ridden. She gets much worse if she has a day off; luckily she's such a fun horse that I...

    Oh it was simple. Was about 2 years into my re-riding career, on a friend's lovely older gelding. He was a little quirky but generally safe safe safe as long as your respected the "triggers" caused...

    As many others have said, it *will* get better, as long as the horse's soundness also comes back to some degree. I completely get the "but this is not what I was expecting!" feeling, as that's what...

    I can't find the exact quote, but one way she is like some of us (at least according to various joking threads) is that her husband doesn't *really* know how many horses she has :lol:

    I *think* I would go as far as to say, if someone shared one of those FB posts with me, that the best I could do for the horse is obtain it (with ownership) and have it euthanized immediately. Around...

    A friend used to describe her spooky horse as "getting big" when he was scared.

    The mare *definitely* does that. She is 15 hands but puffs up to feel like 16 when she's scared. She's also one...
