  1. Horse Health
    Im getting both my pony and horse gelded soon and I have a few questions. I will also be talking to my vet. What do i do since i don’t have anything that is “stall-like?” At the moment they are on a 1 acre lot while the rest of the property is being fenced off so they don’t have too much room...

    Guess which one is the mare 👀 Edit: no cheating and looking at my previous posts 😂
  3. Horse Conformation Queries and Critique
    !!! For disclosure, my horse is NOT in this condition anymore. This is a photo from when he was fresh from being rescued, at his last home before we even bought him !!! I personally think that my horse has wonderful conformation but I want to know that you guys think! Purebred 14.3hh Lippitt...
  4. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello! I recently moved my 17.2 hand Paint to a new boarding facility and the owner/caretaker there has informed me that he has been sour about leaving the pasture. Now this is a gelding I have owned for years, since he was either 7 or 8 years old and at his last stable, he was put out to...
  5. Horse Breeds, Registrations and Brands
    Hope you all are having a lovely day! So I recently got a gelding from a rescue center and I signed up for the forum just to ask this question. He has been with me for just under a month and has settled in very well. (He had strangles when we got him which the last owner did not know about but...

    Would appreciate any feedback on the confirmation of this gelding. Considering keeping him long term for shows and trails.
  7. Horse Health
    Hello all you lovely people. I've come once more to ask your thoughts and advice. This time around, on stringhalt. My friend and I recently worked together to save a horse from going to auction where he would mostly end up going for meat. This boy is only 4 years old and a draft cross. He has...
  8. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I've trained a few horses but I got my first untouched prospect about 6 months ago now. He was two (3 now) and still a stud,(he's gelded now). It has been a pretty cool experience starting him from scratch. I bought him off a lady who just had him out on a quarter section with a few other studs...
  9. Horse Talk
    Hey all. I was just curious how many of you guys have horses that prefer and/or do better when they're alone vs being in a herd. I recently got a gelding and had him in a paddock on his own for a week and a half just so him and I could get acquainted before turning him out in the field with...
  10. General Off Topic Questions & Discussion
    Hey y’all! I just bought a 2014, 17.2hh, chestnut OTTB gelding! He has a blaze and 3 tall stockings! His JC name is Gone Lucky, but I’m not super wanting to call him Lucky. Does anyone have name ideas before he arrives?? I’m thinking I want to stick with something luck or Irish themed, but I’m...
  11. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I have a 14 year old off the track appendix gelding (Brewer) with some interesting markings. There are white patches of flecked hair throughout his body, concentrated on his haunches and cheek bones. The previous owner said they are birdcatcher spots, but I doubt that. Birdcatcher spots (as far...
  12. Horse Conformation Queries and Critique
    Hey guys :) So my boy Jack is close to being 3 years old. So I was wondering what you guys think of his conformation. I did post him to an actual FB conformation group but have been getting 0 responses so I figured I'd try here. I can see a few things myself, but I'd love to hear more...
  13. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Good morning/evening everyone! Lately my grandma's little pony has started acting up. He's pretty much only halter broke and like a typical pony, has a BIG attitude. If he was a person, he'd probably be the most sarcastic and goofy guy you'd ever meet lol. Anyway, he has this habit of turning...
  14. Horse Talk
    So I think I may have finally figured out a way to move forward into the horse community more. It's definitely hard to get a foot into it when you don't grow up riding horses. Anyway, so basically, I had someone suggest a site called Yard and Groom. There are a few apprenticeship type...
  15. Horse Breeding
    So, as some of you may know, I recently got a new horse. He's an 8 year old thoroughbred gelding. I've named him Samual (Sam). Now, this boy was never raced, but he did live on a race track for the first few years of his life. So he is registered under the name Kings Gold Ruler. I don't know a...
  16. Horse Talk
    Things have taken an interesting turn as a new horse has entered my life and now I'm in search of a name for him. This guy is a thoroughbred gelding who never raced. He's currently 8 years old and stands at 16.1 hh, so he's a big guy lol. At one point he was introduced to dressage but the...
