  1. Horse Health
    So when we got my rescue mare she was a few days away from death. Totally healthy now but her back legs were covered in her own poop. Her pasture mates wouldn't let her eat the hay so she lived off grass scraps all year round for 7 (almost 8!!) years (with care from pb's coming in every once in...
  2. Horse Talk
    I've worked as a hotwalker and then a groom, and have done a little bit of everything in my time at the track. The racetrack is the only discipline of horses that I've been around. Therefore, all the knowledge I have regarding horse care and horse handling came from my time at the track. I'm...

    After over a year of looking, I have finally found my second horse! Meet Robert T (barn name still undecided), a 2011 off the track Standardbred gelding. He was never raced as he was deemed to slow in time trials, and was sent straight to the meat man. Something about him just grabbed my...
  4. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I joined just to ask this question! Standardbred off the track? Yea or "neigh" (sorry I couldn't help myself :lol:). To give you background, I have 20 years of horse experience. My current horse, the only horse I have owned, I got as a colt 20 years ago for $300. I had him broke by a general...
  5. Horse Breeds, Registrations and Brands
    Hi! I have a 4yo ottb gelding, and I recently identified him through the jockey club, and his sire and dam. I have found a lot of info through equibase and equiline, and a bit of info about his sire through 'stallion register online.' I haven't found any pictures of his mom, or any additional...
  6. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hey guys, I'm going to be buying and retraining an ottb as a project before I go off to University. I have about 3 years of experience with green horses and 5 years with difficult ones, but I've never worked with an ottb or unbroke horse. The horse I just finished working with was a very green...
  7. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Okay, so ... Cowboy. My otherwise perfect baby. 4 year old, 17hh OTTB, with just enough personality to make you love him. Amazing Jumping potential, Beautiful Flying lead changes ... he is just amazing. But for some reason, those big spaces ... just get him. In a small setting, he is fine...
  8. Horse Pictures
    Thought I'd share some pics of my OTTB gelding, Legs. He's been off the track for several years, but I just recently started leasing (possibly buying) him. He definitely needs some groceries, but that's no problem. :) Sorry if the pics are really big or really small, I'm still not very good...
  9. Horse Breeds, Registrations and Brands
    Off the track Thoroughbreds or Standardbreds? Which do you prefer, and why? :lol:
  10. Horse Riding Critique
    Comet is 16. He is an OTT STB by Western Hanover.:D
  11. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hey Everyone, Just for starters I want to say that this thread is not for debating the validity of Clinton Anderson and his methods. I am already sold on his methods. I'm not a purist in that I do use and appreciate other clinicians methods, but Clinton Anderson is my favorite thus far. This is...
