    Fair price for almost new cart?

    What does everyone think a fair price would be for a Kingston almost new (one year old, 6-10 drives on it) Kingston mini cart? Maybe 1/3 less than the going "new" model? Not sure how much to knock off the price without giving it away. Thanks.

    Anybody here make a Buckboard?

    Hubby wants to make a sturdy buckboard for Cappy. It needs to be usable to carry small logs, manure tubs and stuff like that. He was thinking about buying a frame (you can get them at tractor suppy etc) and building on that. I am going to assume we need the front wheels to turn(and with...

    Amish Voice Commands

    Anybody here familiar with the voice commands that the Amish use with their driving horses? I have one that was probably from Amish country and was wondering if he and I might be having a small language barrier :).

    Harness fit question/breeching

    I bought a harness and I am not sure of the fit. Pretty sure it is too big for Peanut as I am one hole from the tightest on each side of the girt and if the leather stretches I will have no adjustments. It fits Cappy better, but the breeching looks big. The breeching rings where the holdback...

    Grazing Muzzle Question

    How much does a grazing muzzle really limit grass consumption for minis? I use one on my welsh pony and it does limit his intake a lot, probably by 80%. My dry lot is full of fallen leaves and will be for amount a month. It is futile to rake or leaf blow it and then let them out as it fills...

    How Small is too Small to Drive?

    I am considering a 30 inch mini for myself to drive. Do you think this is too small? He is a more refined type and four years old. Any hope of more growth? I know I shouldn't be hoping for more growth on a mini, but I am a fairly rugged lass to tote around. Mini would be used for Pleasure...

    Hoof Boot Question/advice needed

    OK, so this is a two part question. First, do hoof boots usually make a noise when is use? Cappy's boots "floppity clop" with each step. I am wondering if this is normal. It is certainly annoying as heck to listen to :cool:. They stay on and are very snug at the end of his trim cycle, they...

    I saw an eagle today

    My hubby, mom and I went out to breakfast this morning and on our way home we spotted an eagle. It was about a quarter of a mile from our house and we watched it fly almost over our property. It was quite low and we were able to get a good look. It was my first ever confirmed eagle spotting...

    Fitting a harness saddle that has a tree questions

    It seems that I am at the point where I need to upgrade to a harness that has a tree in the back saddle.  I am not looking forward to this.  I love my harness, it is serving me well and it very easy for me to use and buckle (arthritis).  But Peanut is using himself differently and we are asking...

    Royal Wedding/Beautiful Horses

    Did anyone watch the Royal Wedding?  The horses were beautiful. And the bride and groom were well turned out,  too :-).   I am always amazed when I see a carriage with a rider on the horses controlling them instead of someone driving them.   Wish I had a "Windsor Grey" in my barn.    I do not...

    How to measure cart for leg room?

    My Kingston metal cart is a wee bit tight in the leg room department for me. I have fairly long legs and I can feel it in my hips after I go for a drive. I like to drive with one foot braced against the front of the cart as I feel more secure that way, but if I do, I'm a little scrunched. If I...

    Quiessence/Remission question

    About eight days ago switched Peanut from Remission to Quiessence and yesterday noticed his crest was harder. Today when I was ground driving him I noticed he looked fatter, so I taped him. Yup, fatter. I weighed him the day I switched supplements and he has gained about 10 pounds. Has anyone...

    Minis and Vaccinations

    Why do minis get the same amount (volume wise) in a vaccination as a full sized horse? I would think the dose would be adjusted down because of their small stature but it isn't. I asked my vet this and she did not have an answer. She actually wondered the same thing. Evidently the drug...
