  1. Horse Talk
    I'm not sure how many of you remember since it's been several months, but my grandma took in an auction rescue horse around October. For those of you who are new or need a refresher, here's a quick summery. A mare who was nearly skin and bones with last years winter coat still clinging to her...
  2. Horse Talk
    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...
  3. Horse Nutrition
    I'm trying to figure out how to best handle my gelding. He is an APHA 12-year-old. In the last few months, he has added on fat pockets. A bit of a crest, some pockets on his tailhead and a bit behind his shoulders. He is in a fairly active workload (ridden by me or my husband for 30-45 minutes...
  4. Horse Tack and Equipment
    The horse I’m riding has a short back. I ride him for lessons in my saddle a wide, 17” dressage saddle that fits him well and by blanket marks shows it is about as long as any saddle he should be under. His owner rides him less than once a month. He rides an older western saddle that is too...
  5. Member Journals
    Hi! I've been trying to start posts after our rides but I decided I would bite the bullet and start a journal! For those of you who are new to us, Stitch (afore mentioned chubby Paint endurance mare) and I are competing in our first year of endurance/competitive trail rides. We mostly...
  6. Horse Breeds
    I'm new to Paints and ride a Breeding Stock Registry gelding (registered APHA solid.) Does anyone participate in the PAC program? I'm interested since I mostly show open shows and open dressage shows and won't be doing the Paint show level yet. Do people enjoy participating? Do you do the show...
  7. Horse Talk
    I am a student in the Equestrian program at my college, and we have what's called a winter drill coming up. I ride a big paint horse named Bandit, and I am in need of costume ideas, as we are all supposed to dress up our horses (and ourselves) according to the theme. Our theme this year is...
  8. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi everyone, I was wondering what would happen if I bought biothane tack and tried to paint something on it? I'm worried it might be like trying to paint on plastic, since it's waterproof. I have an online horse store where I paint cool decorations on leather headstalls, bronc nosebands, etc...
  9. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    My paint has been on light work/ rest since the beginning of summer due to her loosing weight (issue is resolved) and thrush in all hooves (due to our unusually wet winter, mostly resolved still treating),, anyhow i have started doing short rides with her that are roughly 20-30 minutes at a walk...

    Hi Everyone, Meet my new Friend! He's a 1 year old palomino tobiano Paint Horse gelding named 'Eagles Magic Pablo' a.k.a. 'Pablo'. However that's not how I would like to call him. My parent's-in-law' already have a labrador named Pablo, which was actually the name I suggested for the dog. Ha...
  11. Horse Breeding
    Posh was bred last year and had a baby "Gagnam Style" aka Psy. I didn't keep a documented thread because it was under a breed lease (they use my mare, but keep the baby for themself) but I do have pictures. I will be breeding her in 2017 to Dynamic Breeze, and be keeping that baby. Definitely...
  12. Horse Conformation Critique
    Thanks for checking out "Fox"! I've had him for about 8 months now, he was thin and poorly nourished when I got him, his hooves are still recovering so please ignore them for now. The last picture was taken 2 weeks after I got him. Pretty pathetic! Estimated to be in his late teens/early...
  13. Horse Nutrition
    Hello, I need some help. I have 16 almost 17 yr old Paint Gelding, I starting boarding him at a small private farm near me a couple months ago. While he was the other barn he got some kind of high fat feed. Now since I board at this new barn I feed in the evening sometimes during the week...
  14. Horse Colors and Genetics
    My vet says my mare is a Sabino but everyone else says she is an overo. To me there is not a huge difference between them but just for kicks and giggles I want to ask what yall think she is.
  15. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi everyone, I'm wondering would it be possible to paint a saddle with leather paint? (and have it look good and stay on?) I've painted some bridles and headstalls with leather paint and added some interesting designs to it and it turned out really nice. The leather paint goes on very smooth and...

I've painted some bridles and headstalls with leather paint and added some interesting designs to it, and I know that might...
