  • Suggestions for a horse that hates fly masks but *has* to wear one?

    He hates them all. Any kind. With ears. Without. With a nose flap. Without. Though he has to have the kind with the nose flap because he has a pink nose that will burn. He has a spot in his eye that's raised, and I need to keep it protected from the sun, so ideally he should wear a fly mask all day. But... show more
    He hates them all. Any kind. With ears. Without. With a nose flap. Without. Though he has to have the kind with the nose flap because he has a pink nose that will burn. He has a spot in his eye that's raised, and I need to keep it protected from the sun, so ideally he should wear a fly mask all day. But every single day he gets the mask off. The only time he doesn't is when his fly sheet is on and I can connect the fly mask to the neck portion of his sheet. Anyone have any idea to keep the mask on better during the day? I do have a leather halter, I could leave that on on top of the mask just for during the day and take it all off at night/when they're in their stalls. If I weren't worried about the spot in his eye, I'd just use sunscreen (I occasionally use it on his nose when he doesn't have a mask on, and he's fine with it being applied. It's just not an ideal every-day solution b/c it doesn't protect the eye too, obviously). Thanks for your help!

    Here’s my own list :) 1) Just because the ponies you grew up riding were diffucult, it doesn’t make you a horse trainer. 2) Set your goals small, stop thinking you have the ability to jump in big shows when you only jump small courses at home 3) Don’t waste money on bling (think matchy matchy gear) spend your money on lessons. 4) Pay attention when the horse acts up instead of immediately considering it to be training issues 5) Plan ahead, whenever everything is going well be very cautious, something not only CAN go wrong but WILL go wrong. 6) You don’t need a foal 7) You don’t need a wild horse 8) Take the harsh advice other people give you and learn from it rather than crying about it. 9) No matter how good you are at riding, people will always be better than you, and that’s ok. 10) Don’t fall for the cheap prices horses sell for, you will end up spending so much more time, money and tears than you would if you had just bought a regular horse.

    I recently got my 14 y/o TB gelding evaluated by a professional saddler for a new saddle, since my old one doesn’t fit properly without a ton of padding. He is incredibly hard to fit for a saddle, so the saddler recommended a custom saddle. I found a saddle I love and the saddler would order a custom one for my high withered TB to fit him “perfectly.” Except it would cost me $2600 for everything. He’s my only horse and I ride 5-6 days a week. Is it worth it? Or should I be looking at off the rack saddles? I don’t mind spending the money if it’s truly going to be a fix for us...

    I have a small donkey that I know is at risk for founder. I've been treating him for white line disease and have him on a diet as he was very overweight. A few months ago, he had an abscess from white line disease. I thought the abscess was coming back, as one of his feet feels warmer than the others and he often holds it so that he doesn't bear much weight on it. What's really worrying me is that his coronet band is soft and sinks a bit in the middle of his foot. I'm afraid he may have foundered, but he doesn't seem to be in much if any pain. Should I call his vet?

    I did work experience for a week at a horse rescue because that's the type of job I really wanted because I love working with horses and rehabilitating them (training them). Firstly, I have no problem with doing this stuff at all, if I did I wouldn't be into horses because it's back breaking labour and could easily put someone off who wasn't interested. But my experience there left me a bit disappointed. All we did all day was muck stalls in the morning and clean the fields in the afternoon. I got about 15 minutes to groom a horse and that was the only hands on horse stuff I got. Twice they went for a ride and I had to just walk behind them (it may have been an insurance thing) But I never saw them do anything with the horses at all. It wasn't a large place and they had maybe fifteen horses, but they never seemed to do anything with them. And it was run mostly by kids 19-25 no one around any older. I didn't learn a thing. Except doing the labour is okay but my reward for that is getting to work with a horse. See it improve, see it over come fears and complications, when it's all work it's no fun at all. I got bored and frustrated. Maybe my heart isn't in horses as much as I thought it was, because if working at a rescue is just cleaning stalls and mucking fields all day with a few minutes to groom last thing. I don't want that.

    He's exactly what im looking for; a 15yro extremely quiet beginners horse. Price is low, he's taught others to ride, been out to see him multiple times and each time he's perfect. I had a vet check on him and she picked up he's very slightly lame in his left front due to a soft frog. It has been raining a lot and has gone on for a while so she said it may just be that he's had no where dry to stand for a few weeks and then got taken on a bigger than he's used to ride the day prior to the vet check.. but obviously it may not be that either, would you risk it?
