  1. New to Horses
    We're about to buy an 11-yr-old grade QH gelding. He's currently named "Balthazar" (or "Bali"), which is... well... not our first choice of names. Since the horse isn't registered, is it common or acceptable to rename him? I'm not sure whether he knows or responds to that name or not. He...
  2. Horse Breeds
    We rescued Finnigan this past spring. When we went to get him, seeing him for the first time, I realized he's also part Arabian besides being Appaloosa. Is this Blanket or Snowflake and would he be considered Varnish? I was wondering if his color will change and what it might change to? I have...
  3. Horse Health
    I have had my 8 year old QH gelding for 10 months now. When I first purchased him, he would go off on a trail by himself (he was previously used as a trail horse), stood still in the crossties, let me catch him, hardly spooked and was a very easy-going horse. The past 4 months however, he...
  4. Horse Conformation Critique
    I posted a while back of a paing gelding I bought named Whiskey. This was him then. Here he is now I don't have very many pictures...I really only take pictures of my colt. I've been very busy. I know I need to work on his top line. Anything else I need to work on??

  7. Horse Training
    Okay. I know that a "lead" is which hoof lands first during a trot or canter. (...Right?) and a lead change logically is asking the horse to switch which foot lands first. Also that there are simple and flying lead changes. I have watched a few videos, but I am still confused. Can someone...

  9. Horse Colors and Genetics
    When Blue was born, he was something else, dark bay with white spots on his hips and a white tail but as he got older, he started getting whiter (yearling) By the time he was a 2 year old he was sort of black with a dusting of white (pictured beside his dam she's on the left he's on the...
  10. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I bought my 9 year old cleveland bay x tb 3 months ago, she wasnt well schooled but that was something i was willing to work with and after a few weeks she was improving quickly. However over the last few weeks her attitude has changed completly, shes agressive and snappy in the stable, putting...
