  1. Horse Breeds
    :frown_color: Okay, so I'm recieving a horse next week and he is very frail. I do not know what breed he is and I'd like to know. Since I own a rescue, he is coming to me for a new life. :( Poor baby was locked in less than an acre of land for months with almost no food or water/. I was...
  2. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hello, everyone. :-) So a little background for you- I own a Mustang made who I board at a private barn. I came across a page called "OTTB Connect" on Facebook, and started following them as I am a big fan of thoroughbreds. A young lady posted a picture of a handsome thoroughbred gelding. "6...
  3. Horse Health
    Hello everyone. I've got an 11-year old Paso Fino mare, 14hh, who has finally finished her last surgical procedure. History: Surgery, you ask? On July of 2012, she got kicked in pasture by another horse and fractured the shoulder/elbow area of her right foreleg. All was going well until a...
  4. Endurance Riding
    Ok, since I'm healthy and able to train new horses for the first time since 2002 - we decided to sell the two 14hh & 14.2hh gaited horses that hubby and son (now 5'11" @ age 15) trail rode. Simply, the hubby has gained a lot of weight and son just grew - so they were both way too big for those...
  5. Horse Contests
    So this morning I had the biggest brain fart. I had no idea what triggered it actually. It could have been the thought of adopting/rescuing that has been swirling through my head, *Conrad, don't get a head of yourself... One pretty pony at a time... BUT THEY ARE SOO AMAZING GAAAAHHHH*, or my...
  6. Horse Health
    Hi all, I just received my stallion back last Friday evening in horrible condition. I had him listed for sale last fall and was contacted in December by a woman wanting him. I explained to her that the most important thing for me was the home he was going to. I have been very specific & turned...
  7. Horse Protection
    I've subscribed to The world horse Welfare Channel on youtube, and today in my updates box, i was notified of this video. * this video does have a smidge of adult content -- just a few medical terms! This charity in the UK really does some amazing things, and for some reason seeing this horse...
  8. Horse Training
    This horse is the reason for the post but we need help. This 17.2h, 10yr old holsteiner has come to us for rehab so he can be rideable again. The story starts after 5 owner/trainers have gotten to him and now he's landed at rehab, both for his head and his hind end. This horse is incredible to...

  10. Horse Health
    So, my new horse is really confusing me right now. He is being really strange when it comes to eating grain. It is the same diet that he was previously on (whole oats and sweet feed mixture), but he will not clean up the feed in a short amount of time (less than 45 minutes like the rest of...
  11. Horse Health
    I recently accquired a 12 year old american warmblood who needs some serious muscling, about 100 pounds worth. He's just very underconditioned in general, and he needs all the help he can get :) I have had great success with weight building supplements, and he'll be on one for a while, but in...
  12. Horse Health
    Research shows that early diagnosis and treatment of EPM results in a much higher chance of full recovery. Identifying it early requires a knowledgeable owner. In just 30 minutes of reading on prevention and symptoms, an owner can help put their horse into those better statistics...
