    I’ve had my horse for 15 years and I’ve moved her several times before. But this time now that she is older and has had a colic episode in the last 3 years, I’m approaching this move with much more caution. I’m so excited to move her, the overall quality of facilities and stall are so much...
  2. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment
    I have a fantastic, sweet, well trained and centered stallion. I am seeking a good place to board, somewhere with healthy turnout, safe fencing and knowledgeable about stallions where they will charge reasonable board without charging through the roof. He has no vices or behavioral issues...

    I have a mini horse that is 21 years old. He's in great health. Before this summer he has had a normal turnout schedule (Out all day and into the late afternoon, in his stall at night.) This summer to avoid heat and bugs, my barn decided to do reverse turn out (out at night, in stall during...

    I live in Southern Kentucky & I want to know everyone's preferences when it comes to blanketing. We have always had Quarter Horse's that are very easy keepers. They puff up like cotton balls in the winter and have never had trouble going without a blanket. An obstacle that we have is barbed wire...

    I just purchased 2 Horze High Neck Turnout Sheets for my horses and I have very little experience with blanketing at all, but I think they're possibly too big? Or could I have them adjusted wrong or something? They seem decent everywhere but the neck which is gaping open. I have no clue lol they...

    I have a 10 year TB mare who is a good eater and well fed but has loose stool when she is on grass turnout. She's been on grass serval times in her life (in two different states) and has always had loose stool since I got her 5 years ago. We've asked every vet we've come across and they've...

    So i just bought a sweet 14'2 gelding. The stable he was raised in all the horses lived outdoors on acres of pastures. He has been kept in a stall but not for longer than a few days at a time. The area i live in sucks. All the barns (except for two that charge 2-300 more {board is already $900...

    I am wanting to get my horse a rain or turnout sheet that is waterproof for the rainy season. Does anybody have one that has worked really well for them and is actually waterproof? Or ones that really stink?!

    So I have a 3 year old gelding who is very very mouthy, and he has the incredibly irritating habit of taking off his clothes. :-x He will tear off blankets, saddle pads, standing wraps, boots, wraps, bell boots, everything. So we tend to not leave him with anything on if we can avoid it...
  11. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment
    Looking for preferably a smaller place near Southington, CT for boarding. I'm tired of all of the big show barns. My horse is big on turnout. He needs it or he gets cranky. That's his one vice. Other than that we are not picky. I would love to find someone who has a small place that I could help...

    Basically, I am currently boarding my horse at a boarding facility. I am planning on moving him home in several days, (no other horses here but several other farm animals to keep him company.)When he comes, I hope to have him outside 24/7. Where he is now, they bring him into a stall at night...

    Due to an excessive amount of rain this year, I couldn't ride and my horse got laminitis. He is recovering from a mild case (X-Rays show no coffin bone rotation) and has been on stall rest for about 5 weeks now, getting turned out for an hour twice a day while I clean stalls. The grass is...

    Hey guys, Of late, my filly has been a rug (blanket) murderer! I've never had a horse that rips its rugs before, and even Red didn't use to, until the past, say, three weeks. She's completely torn a Med weight, and the stuffing has come out, and has put little nicks/punctures in another med and...

    I have a rising 8 arab x tb mare, and we plan on taking her to a local level show soon. We do not expect her to come out on top (She is badly over at the knee and has long pasterns) but we want to take her because she has never been to an event before and she shows potential for both dressage...

  18. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    I'm looking for an all around type of blanket and this one comes apart with a poly-fill inner shell that can be taken out, and the horse can wear the outer shell as a turnout sheet. Does anybody own this? Or heard of this? It has some cool bells and whistles. I like the versatility of it :D...
