    I was so lost at first, any moment of my life I thought I didn't belong to this world anymore.:faceshot: I decided it was time to leave, it felt like nobody cared for me, nobody actually loved me. So, why would I stay? Then, I was somehow led to her, Vidra. The first day, I groomed her, she...
  2. New to Horses
    Hello everybody, I will write down some things about me here. So, I live on the countryside. I really love horses and have some of my own. I am bonding with a mare named 'Vidra', unfortunately, I do not have any pictures of her, but I will put one alike. There, that is what I found most...
  3. Horse Nutrition
    Lately I've seen quite a bit around getting your horses hair tested, I watch a video on YouTube about it, this girl swore by it. Then last night I was talking to a girl at my barn who had done it herself, and it was almost spooky how good it was. Anyone have any experiences or feedback about...
  4. Horse Grooming
    Hey guys! I bought my new mare in January. She was a pampered/stalled horse who had probably never had to grow winter hair in her three short years of life. I bought her from a trainer who needed stall space, otherwise I would have boarded her there until the weather warmed up because we don't...

    My horses mane is scraggly and uneven. It also feels very rough and is impossible to brush. Her tail isn't great either, but it's not as bad as her mane. I have tried using cowboy magic but it just seems to be a temporary fix. Any products that can make it feel and look better? Thanks!

    Hi, I have an eight year old mare who has had problems with flies. She got bit a lot along her neck, shoulders, and face. We have found a solution to prevent more bites, but she still rubs along the pasture fence and has spots of missing hair about the size of a push pin along her neck and...
  7. General Off Topic Discussion
    I'm hoping to get some answers from all of you on here so I don't have to sign-up with another forum! So here's the scoop - I did a red ombre last summer and let it fade out until January and dyed it back to dark brown, my natural color. I am itching to do something with it again and was...
  8. Horse Grooming
    I was looking through some grooming supplies and I came across these brushes in all these cool colours. They looks pretty cool and sound great! It says they are great brushes for horses with their winter coat, and it also says it is great for bathing as they are waterproof and they are even good...

    so I'm going to a low-key hunter show and I use to tuck my hair up into my c Owen helmet with a hair net, like most hunter riders. now my hair is too long or something and won't fit. spp I was wondering how to do my hair. I know I've seen younger girls wearing two braids with ribbons on them...
  11. Horse Show Clothing
    I'm showing for the first time off-barn on Saturday and I just realized I have no idea how to wear my hair. I have thick, LONG (like ends past my shoulder blades long) hair and its so hard to keep in ponytails and no one in my family knows how to braid :( Any hair tips? I have hair nets, but...
  12. Horse Health
    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could give me any info on what could be causing little pieces of hair to disappear from my horses neck, and result in tiny black patches of skin?? He is rugged full time and is a show horse so this is very annoying as they stand out a lot!! Will appreciate any...

    I can make you a custom piece if jewelry if you have extra hair from you horse, either fron mane pulling or tail trim ( it needs to be 7" at least for bracelets) but I can make Tassle charms or earrings with shorter hair. 20% off all memorial pieces the reason I started this hobby was to make...
  14. Horse Grooming
    Has anyone used an anti-fungal moisturizer lotion called Equiderma Skin Lotion? My horse has some bare areas on his face around his nose, cheeks, and behind his ears, and he seems itchy when I take the bridle off. He is always very clean around his face, and there are no scabs or other clues...
  15. Horse Grooming
    My AQHA gelding has the thickest black mane, with considerable length! It is absolutely gorgeous but I would love to keep it tidier as he always seems to play in the burrs! Also, since it is black, on the hotter days it causes the poor guy to sweat pretty badly beneath it. I have been told to...

    How can I braid my horses tail? I want to use thread or anything like that. His hairs are really short at his dock.
  17. Horse Health
    I work at a camp over the summer and we had to rent four horses this year, all the horses are good and sound, although one is just a little lazy. But one of the horses who came had a lot of hair loss on his face, so I can't say when it started or anything. The place we rented him from really...

    So, I'm not sure if this completely fits in this category, but I think it does. My yearly QH filly has warn a blanket since I got her, and they fit her well. They aren't too snug and they aren't huge. My problem is that she seems to have a rash or the blanket is rubbing her hair off of her chest...
