    Talking Everything you wanted to know about anything but were to afraid to ask

    I know/think/hope that I'm not the only one with random questions about horse stuff, so come on let's ask some questions, and hopefully get some answers.

    1) What DOES 30 days training mean, is the horse there for 30 days, but may only be ridden for 20 or 25 days, or is is 30 days riding however long it takes?

    I think that would be something you would need to specifically ask the trainer... I am sure there are as many answers as there are trainers!

    It isn't a term that I am used to in the UK, but I see it so often in ads but it actually means nothing then?

    From what I've heard, it's 30 days of training - however much that might be needed.
    For instance, a horse that not halterbroke and going to the trainer is going to have to have a few (or more! Haha) of those taken 30 days taken up with halter training+just the basics, then saddle training.
    A horse that's aleady had extensive groundwork done is going to come out more saddle broke after 30 days than one that starts the 30 days barely trained to do anything...

    That, of course, is just my understanding. :)

    My silly question is: what's the "right" way to put on bell boots?
    On a blog I read, the other day there was a picture of a horse in bell boots that looked correct to me but all the commenters were saying the bells were on wrong...

    I never thought of that, GH, lol. Interesting.

    Wallaby, as far as I know, you just need the Velcro strap to be pulling away from the other hoof so they don't accidentally brush it off.

    My silly question, do mares ever stop going into heat?

    You see that is the problem, 30 days training depends on where the horse was when it went there, and there is no standard in how many sessions 30 days actually gets you..

    Ricci, good question, and I think that they do become more erratic and eventually stop cycling, but not sure...

    Thanks Ricci (funny calling you that, hahaha)! That's what I thought but you never know!

    As far as mares going through "menopause", they don't usually - at least according to my vet. I guess there comes a point where they might cycle more gently/less regularly but they're still cycling.
    Lacey's 27 and she's still cycling super roughly - I hope she settles at some point! Haha

    What is that weird noise that gelding's make caused by, some make it and some don't?

    Why do some horse's make soap like bubbles in their water buckets?

    Why do mare's make that black gucky stuff around their udder?

    What is a green horse?

    How do you know what level of riding you are at if you don't show or do pony club levels?

    How come there is no western riding events in the Olympics, some of those are really hard too?

    Should I keep going?

    Got another, how come horses can scratch their face with a back hoof, but never seem to bend when you ask?

    With cursing, sweating and more strength than I apparently have - for the stupid rubber ones at least.
