    Well, life took an extremely unexpected turn today. I found out that there are a couple of yearlings that going to get sent to slaughter in the next day or two. No auction no other chances at finding a home, no nothing, just straight to slaughter. Well, I asked for more information and I...

    Soo....I did a thing.... A lady that boards at the same stable I do has 3 mares at her property that had foals. I went and saw said foals. I got my heart stolen by a little filly xD So, meet Melody. She's a quarter horse and in these pics when I first met her, she was only ten days old...

    So I recently started looking at this mustang named Mo. He is 7 years old and 15hh. He seems like the perfect horse for me. He looks to have really good movement and a decent jump. He also looks really brave! He's only been saddle trained for about 2 years and has recently started jumping. I...

    Things went differently than expected today. My grandma has been somewhat on the hunt for a new horse to put in with her pony to keep him company. We weren't able to find anything decent for a while, but recently, I saw a lady I know post on FB that she was giving away her mare for free to an...

    We bought our second horse, a 13 year old QH, back in late June. Around the same time, we sold our pony because he was not a good fit for our kids. He went to a WONDERFUL home - we still get updates on him. Anyway, ever since we've been on the search for a second so Red (the QH) wouldn't be...
  9. Horse Shows
    Hello! I was wondering if there was someone around with an USEF membership and a few minutes to spare who would be willing to help me out with a little something. I was given for free a horse a few months ago and I was told that he has an extensive show record in the hunter circuit in...

    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...

    I have a dark bay gelding that I need to name. He is slightly high strung, but very sweet. He has the kindest eyes. Any ideas?? He is a thoroughbred also. :runninghorse2:
  12. New to Horses
    Hello, Recently, I purchased two horses from a rescue pen near me. One is *about* 10 years old, gelding - seems to be very desensitized, low in pecking order. The other is my "problem" teenager - he is *about* 13, gelding, was used out west as a cattle horse on a ranch, super sassy and seems to...
  13. Horse Health
    Hello, I'm new to the horse forum and was just wondering about some things. So I have had horses in the past, but that was when I was 8 years old. I'm thinking about getting another horse but the problem is where I live, I live in North/Central Arizona where there is no grass but instead a LOT...

  15. Horse Breeds
    Hey everyone. So I'm getting a 6 month old foal in the next week or so. However, the owners don't know her breed as her parents were wild and came from a reserve. So I was wondering what you guys have to think about her and what you think her breeding her is? I have a few ideas, like maybe paint...
  16. Member Journals
    Well, this month has been full of lots of surprises and changes. A little while ago I moved into a cabin on my grandparents property who live out in the country. I also got permission to get a horse if I wanted. Well, I ended up finding a 6 month old filly instead. So I'm crossing my fingers and...
  17. New to Horses
    I'm going to buy a horse in Las Vegas and won't have a beautiful green grass pasture turnout for him to graze. He will be staying in our backyard, ideally. Still getting used to the fact that I'll be living in a freakin desert... LOL How many bales do you suggest for a horse with no pasture...
  18. New to Horses
    I am new to horses and in the search for my forever horse. I came across this quarter horse and havent met him in person but the owner sent me this picture. My question is, his hooves look very cracked. Does it look like just needing an appt with the ferrier or is this just a case of bad hoofs...
  19. Barrel Racing
    I just got this new barrel horse about two months ago. He is very relaxed in my arena at home and has never offered to buck. However, he frequently tilts his head back and forth at the lope and occasionally drops it. I had used him as a back up barrel horse a few times that my horse came up lame...
  20. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hey guys! So I've got a new horse that I'm bringing into the stables for the winter. I've only ridden him once so far but he seems fairly laid back, though a bit stubborn too. So my biggest question is, what can I do to keep things interesting for the both of us while at the stables? I know...
