  1. Horse Training
    Hey all! The farm I work for has recently acquired a new stud and asked me to train him to our phantom mare. He was bought from auction, and we have no info on his background other than 'aged quarter horse'. His purpose here is simply for collection, his semen will NOT be used to inseminate...
  2. Horse Health
    I have a 16 yr old QH that is slightly favoring his front left leg. If you watch him out in the pasture you can BARELY tell as he walks around. In fact a "normal" person wouldn't notice it. If he trots and gallops it's more noticable. But I wouldn't call it a limp. Anyway, I take him on short(...
  3. Trail Riding
    I was looking for some calm trail horses for my beginner little brother to ride. I have been riding for like 5 ears and my brother has been wanting to ride for awhile. I have been asking friends that have had many horses before and they said the older the better. I found a calm but still lively...
  4. Horse Health
    I lease a 17 yr old arabian, and i recently noticed that her stifle seems to 'pop' when she moves and it makes a popping sound. I've heard that she's had stifle issues in the past, but this seems a little strange. She is older, and it is winter, im wondering if its possible that the cold weather...

    Hi there, I have a number of things I wanted to ask you guys on here and I hope you can help :-) This might be long so bear with me please. I have a 15.2 part Thoroughbred gelding between the age of 18-25 (different vets have given different ages). He had a bad leg injury a few years ago and...
  7. Tack and Equipment Classifieds
    I am unsure of the year or exact model of this saddle, but it's definitely in rideable condition! It's a Wintec Close Contact synthetic saddle, serial number 017435 and made in Australia. Super lightweight - I'd say about 5lbs. Medium gullet (this was made before the Easy Gullet Change System)...
  8. Horse Health
    In January I decided to go ahead with my purchase of a 18yr old mare that was skinny. I've taken in poor horses before, so I figured it would be no problem, that she just needed time and food. Well, it's May and although she is better than in January I am very displeased and becoming...
