    Why do people lie about having rescue horses 🐴

    People lie about themselves all the time on social media and posts about horses are no different. It’s like those lifestyle influencers with the perfect houses with not a spoon out of place. You just know that, outside of the camera shot, they have rooms where they’ve stuffed all of their crap.

    Video Driving Horse attacked by dog in the US

    Even after being kicked repeatedly, that dog kept coming back for more. It was a menace.

    General question on weight limits

    Most of the stables/riding schools in my area of the U.S. don't seem to have a weight limit listed. I know that a local one had a weight of 170 in the past when I looked. A casual browse today pulled up one with a 150 lb. weight limit. So there are a few, at least, that are aware of the...

    Just sharing, coronavirus,especially for us older people!

    I’m a youngish 59, but am not fit—am obese, have high blood pressure (ok with meds) and asthma. Prediabetic too. Lucky to be able to work from home. Taking self isolation very seriously. Taking a walk every day in my neighborhood to keep spirits up and to get exercise. Walked with a friend today...

    Sheep and horses

    My only exposure to sheep is livestock at fiber festivals, so obviously not an expert here. However, at the last festival there were some Gotland sheep that were incredibly friendly, really almost like large happy dogs.

    Thyroid medication cats

    My cat isn’t bothered by the methimazole cream, which is a good thing, because if I had to pill her twice a day, she’d be PTS.

    Best New Owner Breeds?

    However, I've also noticed novice riders being advised to steer clear of thoroughbreds, (especially ex-racers), arabs, etc. The advice is sometimes conflicting....

    Kentucky Derby Winner Disqualified

    Generally speaking, it is not mentally productive to try to parse out Trump's tweets on any issue. If anything, I think the general inclination would be pressure on the stewards to let the initial result stand, not disqualify the winning horse. So I suppose that they stuck to their...

    Kentucky Derby Winner Disqualified

    I doubt that they can appeal, though not 100% sure. Only one camera view had a good view of the horse going wide into another lane, but if was fairly clear. The jockey said that the noise from the crowd affected the horse there. As I mentioned, I don’t follow racing much. I thought that horses...

    Kentucky Derby Winner Disqualified

    Don’t follow racing much, just the Triple Crown races here in the U.S. Felt very bad for the first place jockey and the owners of the horse, all of whom were looking at their first Kentucky Derby wins. First time in Derby history that the first place winner was disqualified. In good news...
