    Hey, guys, so I’m at a loss and I feel like such a failure as a horse owner. I have had my Tennessee walker mare for a year now. She’s 15 years old and when I met her I loved her! She was amazing everything I wanted! So I bought her. Well, a year later and I still can’t do anything with her...

I saw a posting for a 17 year old mustang mare, and something about her just made me want to see her. She was only half an hour away and I...

    As it seems, to my great joy, I will finally be owning and taking care of a horse of my own soon. I met the gelding yesterday, he's a gorgeous 15hh (roughly), five year old Quarter horse. Very sweet and fairly easy going. Two to three years ago, while wearing a halter and lead he went to eat...
