my horse moonlight minute is acting up now. i got her to stop kicking but now when i get on her she fights. im just doing small jumps trying to settle back down on her. im allowed to ride her now. anyway my bf hit her i guess when she kicked him or something so now she is fighting me. i know lunging is a good idea but how long should i lung her? like half an hour? longeR? shorter? what should i make her do? im thinking i should do join up wit her. that always works for me. what do you think? to me i think doing join up with her is my best bet in getting her to calm down and have fun with me and riding.
a horse dealer is selling a gypsy vanner gelding named happy go lucky. he is a great horse. id like to buy him for a companion for Minnie. she might get along with him. he is 16.1 and is very well trained. he jumps 2ft. he is good on trails. he doesn't buck or rear or bolt. he is hard to spook. what do you think? be nice about your answer please, he gets along great with other horses and he is very very friendly. i would love to have him. and im hoping Minnie will like him to. thanks

im fed up with this lady right now. okay i bought minute from this girl. i love minute but now the girl wants her back. why? i dont know she wont tell me. what should i do to keep minute? im not giving into her minute is MINE and she is staying mine but i dont know what to do anymore. she came to us at the show and when i got back from camp. honestly she shouldn't have sold minute if she still wanted her but she did and she cant have her back i know that sounds mean but i love minute any ideas on what i should do? have you ever had to deal with some one like that? what did you do?
I think I'm going to offer minute's old owner a part time lease for minute. but I dont know how much to charge per month. Is $100 a month good enough? To high? To low? I'm not good at that kind of stuff so if this is a good or bad offer let me know please or if i should go by every 4 weeks or 6 weeks or something like that, thank you Levi and minute
I have a 3 or now 4 basically year old colt, I don't know what breed he is. He's currently 14 hands, he's very thick and stocky, his mane and tail are thick and wavy, and he has very tough feet. I think he's possiably a QH / Halflinger cross, or maybe all QH, or any other number of breeds and crosses. I just want to narrown it down. Also he's been called about every color, red dun, flaxen sorrel, dark palomino. He does have a dorsal stripe, but that could just be counter shading. Give your opinions on what breed and color you think he is. There's an abulm on him called "Eightysix" . Thanks.
hey everyone! 1) do you prefer English or western? 2) do you prefer a pony or horse? 3) what color of saddle pad do you like to use? 4) do you use a colored nose band and brow band? 5) do you jump? how high please answer these questions if you want to. i have no reason for asking im just curious thanks levi and minute

My horse,Blaze,was born with his two front leg bones twisted and he was abused before I got him. Now that hes 27 the vet said if he gets an worse I should put him down.Even though I don't want to I can't have alive and always in pain so I sadly agreed to.To cheer me up my mom said that if we do put him down she'll gladly buy me another one.Even though no other horse could ever replace him I wanted to get a brownQH/Tennessee Walker cross like him but then I thought 'Why not get something else?' So I was wondering what your favorite horse breeds were so that I could look at a few of them and see what I think,just for options.I'm very much into western riding.Barrels,poles,calf roping,team roping,cutting,etc.Also,Blaze and I ride dressage.We are(were)in the process of learning a piaffe.Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
