He's a peppy little Morgan/Lipizzaner gelding, that has survived 22 years of life. He has English and Western training under his belt. But he wasn't going to live much longer at the...

    I recently had someone see some pictures of my buddy Rufous on the internet and caught some criticism for him looking underfed and emaciated. Here is a little back story... He was bought by a lady for her boyfriend. Boyfriend (a Marine) deployed. They broke up while he was deployed. She was...
  3. New to Horses
    Hey everyone, I'm coming back to horses after an 8 year stint in L.A. And I need help. My parents "kept" my horses "for me" after I got married.

    I board at a barn near my home, and there is this one gelding there. His name is Duke. The thing is, he has some sort of eating problem, so he isn't allowed outside to graze with the other horses and ponies, and his owner never comes to ride him, so he's always in his stall. It makes me want to...

    So at my barn, in the area that my trainer has her horses, there is this tall bay mare. I've never once seen an owner take her out and the only interaction she seems to get is from me on the weekends from outside her stall and the hired hands mucking and feeding. The area that we are situated at...
