    What is your favorite halter? Barn, show, etc.

    For barn halters I like any good nylon halter. The only thing that I don't like about some nylon halters is some have the adjustable chin, I hate that. Too much bulk where my lead rope is and it gets stuck through the chin hook and I just hate it. I know alot of people here dislike rope halters...

    Harness Critique

    Evrything looks pretty good, but you do need to raise the breastcollar up quite a bit. It sort of looks like it slipped under his shoulder. The only other thing would be maybe raise your shafts a hole up. The picture is taken at an angle so I wouldn't make any changes to that as I'm not...

    mane and tails

    I keep my show horses tails braided, folded and wrapped with vet wrap, and MTG. I've found that there are no supplements or miracle sprays and this is the only combination I have found that works. And even my appaloosas have long manes and tails. MTG stands for Mane Tail Groom and you can find...

    JUST JUMP IT!

    I believe it was you I told on FB, my AMHA performance mare can just barely get to 44" (amha regulation height). Are you sure the height you typed wasn't a typo? 53" is extremely tall and I doubt a mini could clear that...How tall is your horse?

    What feeds do you prefer?

    We have tried many different feeds in the years we have had horses. I too am not a fan of Safechoice, and Nutrena For that matter. I have never fed Purina before so I wont comment much on them. I do know top trainers and showers that use Puria and swear by it, but I has never been in my area...

    Clipping Question

    Body- 10 for appaloosas and pintos, 15 for solids. Some people use a 30 but I dont. Legs- If the are white a 10, solid I use a 15 or 30. Head- I use a mix of 15-30-40-50. There is a face clipping diagram out there some where that came from arabs that I use. Maybe look at the LB info pages and...

    More Hay choice

    I have always liked a grass hay with some alfalfa in it. Timothy is usually very nice too. But, honestly, with those prices I would be looking for the hay that was decent and for the best price. My grass hay mix that has a little bit of everything in it is $2.50 a bale! There isn't really any...

    Clipping around the eyes

    I totally agree with you. The more shows I go to and and the more magazines I look at, It seems like almost everyone is on board with this trend. People will tell you that it makes the eye "pop" which, honestly, it DOES. But it is just not something I can put my horses through. My horse with...

    Appy coloring

    Is is thought that few spot and snowcap appies, with about 5 spots or less, are homozygous for the appaloosa(lp) gene. I have seen many loud appaloosa stallions that werent either of the above bred to a solid mare and had a solid foal, but few spot stallions bred to solid mares and have leopard...

    Where to find electric fencing

    Take a long peace of long grass and hold it in your hand and put it against the electric wire or rope and you will feel the pulse of the electric but not an actual shock. And no, it really does not hurt. A free fence tester!

    Whatever you do, don't get a Kodak. Canon is the way to go!
