    Dying manes and tails

    I went with Just For Men darkest brown . Only had to let sit for 10 minutes and I really like how it came out ! It came with an applicator that went right on the end of the tube that worked slick. I must have used more product than I needed to get the job done as I used a whole tube for one tail LOL

    Dying manes and tails

    Thanks so much for the replies ! I'll remember next year to attempt this before the first body clip of the year . And yes, check your rule book - it is legal to dye manes and tails their original color : )

    What is the average cost of a Coggins a health paper in your area?

    Here in central Maine I pay $40 for a coggins test, its $70 for the farm call. Not sure what the health cert cost now. Always amazes me how different the prices can be depending where you live ! Everything seems to cost more in Maine and some states the vets charge so little for everything I...

    What's the one colour you wouldn't want in your breeding program?

    My least favorite color on a mini is the mousey mule brown bay. Tied for second would be double dilutes and appaloosas. I also really don't like the all white horse with the medicine hat pattern. I like all other colors. But as been said a million times, a great horse is a great horse regardless...

    With very limited showing....

    Congrats! Beautiful horses. And thanks for the tip. I didn't know this honor roll existed. Just checked it and found I made the list with my gelding - tied for 6th in region 1 after only attending one AMHA show : ) You learn something new every day !

    I don't know how much good it will do - but I logged in and reported a few of the worst offenders. People are so stupid and cruel. Makes me sick.

    Horse lame after trim

    Thanks!I'll be keeping an eye on her, keeping her in, she can stay in my 12 X 12 foaling stall, deeply bedded, and I'll go from there. Interesting about the insulation. Watching her today I did think to myself that she looked like a cat not wanting to put her foot down in the cold snow.

    Horse lame after trim

    Thanks for your replies. I have never had a horse go lame after a trim in almost thirty years of horse ownership. But I figured thats what it must be, seeing as its all four feet and directly after a trim. I will keep her in like she is now on matted stall with thick bedding. Forgot to ask the...

    Horse lame after trim

    Hi all! I have a mini that suddenly came up lame - she had a trim in the morning - turned out later in the day. I noticed she was walking gingerly - thought it was maybe because of the trim and also the new snow which might have been alittle slick. Back in her stall overnight. Now today she is...
