She spends from 8 AM to about 7:30 or 8 pm outside but not with the other horses...she's in an outdoor arena at the moment

So my "helper" won't consider me able to take 'proper care' of my horse till I go through the entire Pat Parelli savvy system on partnership...I'm not sure I can do that in 19 days.

i say that's a load of crap and will cost you a lot of money. The best way to learn is by doing, true, but to learn the things you want to know, IMHO you would be better off to volunteer at a big local riding can learn a lot that way 8)

Re: Basic care...?

What I have:

Lead rope
Lunge line
Horse guard with selenium
Various brushes
Hoof pick
Fly spray
Fly mask
Bell boots
Shrieners herbal spray
(on it's way) best friend grazing muzzle
(on it's way) rope halter

So if you can think of anything let me know...cause I am willing to learn and want to take the best care of my horse possible.


Hello Beth.

Don't forget the shovel and bucket.
My two put out about 15 gallons of manure a day, so if your new guy is eating enough roughage, I suspect that you will be dealing with at least five.....and the smaller his range-area, the more important it is that you keep all that crap cleaned up.

All the feeding tools and stall cleaning tools are provided by the boarder. If things don't work out with this horse I'm still going to get one...I just may have to wait a little longer to get one *sigh* at least I'll have most of the equipment already.
