  • Re: How's everyone doing with their New Year's resolutions?

    Years ago I made a resolution never to make another one. I am happy to say I am still keeping that resolution Jane, how does your in-home walking program work? I need to drop about 25 lbs and I know I have to get "above" my standard physical routines of barn work, hoof trimming, and grooming. I also have Grade III Spondylolisthesis . Grade III is pretty d**n bad:( My lower back has fused itself but I haven't had any new X-rays to see if the middle of my back has done the same. http

  • Re: Building a New Barn in SoCal...Need Stall Flooring Advice

    Where in SoCal are you? I lived in Riverside County for several years and all we had was sand. I know there were two kinds of sand and one of them would "roll over" in a hazardous way when it got soaked with rain. What you're asking requires a professional answer from someone in your specific area. Flooring in a barn that is going to last the rest of your life is not something you want to mess up with "internet answers" :) My best thought is contact your nearest Ag person

  • Re: Building a New Barn in SoCal...Need Stall Flooring Advice

    I see your dilemma Do you get a lot of earthquakes or aftershocks in your area? If so I'm wondering, if you decide on cement, if you would have to reinforce the cement so it wouldn't crack or start to break every time there's a shaker. I don't know how that's done but there's enough homes in that area on slabs that surely someone has an answer and how much extra $$$ that would be

  • Re: Horse will come to others, but not me.

    My guess is that with your work, school and other commitments, you only go visit him when you want him to work. Even if you are only going to brush him - that constitutes work to a horse because it means leaving the pasture and being tied up or, at the very least, haltered. His daily living routine, which he now likes, is being interrupted by you. Most likely other humans that approach him, don't want a thing from him except to "ooh, aahhh" and maybe give him a treat. Horses are very

  • Re: Horse pulls back when being groomed or touched

    Big BIG kudos for taking the time to completely check him out. By this time his habits of pulling back, because he's uncomfortable being touched, will have to be un-learned. My thoughts are two-fold: He is either really thin-skinned and just can't tolerate much pressure when being brushed, and/or he has food allergies that are so very subtle that you don't notice them ---- except when you brush him I said for years that one of my TWH's was "uncomfortable in his own skin"

  • Re: Need breeches

    http://www.fuzzylogicequine.com/ These are so stylish and comfortable that I own a second pair to go shopping in. I have gotten compliments and surprised looks when I say they are riding pants. That 2" elastic waistband does NOT roll, no matter what you're doing. The summer weights are plenty warm for me in the winter but I'm the person that keeps the house at 62 because my internal thermostat doesn't need it to be any warmer.

  • Re: Pondering what goes in vs. what comes out.....

    [quote user="Missyclare"] I do my best thinking while scooping the poops, lol! They're in cahoots, yuh know. They figure the more they keep us busy at this job, the less time for riding. The pump froze at the barn tonight. I had to fill a barrel from the house by hand. Now that's a 100lbs! I was thinking that I wouldn't be able to keep this up and tried the pump before I left, one more time and it worked.....grrrrrrrr! Carrying water is worse than poo any day! [/quote] There's

  • Re: Help needed.

    Nupe can't see the pics. However, since the vet's looked at the horse, it's been "down the pike" for tests and meds. the bump got bigger and is now "hard as rock", my best guess is the horse got bit by something and is having a really bad allergic reaction. You don't say where you live, but any kind of poison spider (like a black widow) could do something like that. Scorpions might also do that. I know for fact there Black Widows behind the kickboards in my barn

  • Re: Pondering what goes in vs. what comes out.....

    I have wondered that myself. Especially of the horse that weighs 1,100 pounds and I can hardly lift the BIG aluminum shovel full of poop he leaves in one pile. Sometimes I can't fit one pile onto that big aluminum shovel. He leaves a minimum of five of those piles in his stall every night --- he should not weigh 1,100 pounds. I have a horse that is two inches taller and also weighs 1,100 pounds. I can get 1-1/3 piles of his poop on that aluminum shovel; maybe even 1-1/2 piles. Not only is something
