How to Draw Horse Hooves on Photoshop   4th Oct 2012
How to Draw Horse Hooves on Photoshop
Graphics We’ve all encountered that perfect stock image, a sleek, well positioned horse that will fit nicely in the background we’ve picked out for our manip - except for one little detail. Dirty, gross-looking hooves. What now? Do we just abandon our stock horse in search of another with more manageable hooves? Unfortunately, most of our equine friends have an irresistible attraction to mud and dirt, and their hooves are inevitably the first things that encounter the muck. So now what? It’s time to redraw those hooves!

To Win The Triple Crown - Part 2   3rd Oct 2012
To Win The Triple Crown - Part 2
Horse Fiction The day after the race, Marie loads me into my trailer and we drive home. My home is filled with people and horses and dogs hustling and bustling about. I had grown up there, so I knew every nook and cranny. I usually stayed in the South barn, where the female racing horses where. The North barn was where all the male racing horses were. The East and West barn were the breeding barns, one for the mares the other for the stallions. A huge race track was right in the middle of everything, so if you walked out of the back entrance of each one, you could walk a little ways and be at a racing track. It wasn't as big as the ones I raced in competitively, but it was good for exercising.

A Jem of A Horse
 by Faith forever on 2nd Oct 2012
A Jem of A Horse General  I will never forgive myself for selling her! I gave up way to easy! It's my fault that gorgeous Paint withered away! I also will never forgive her owners after me. They killed her and her foal. I feel that if I would have kept her we would have been best friends and been galloping all around the pasture and trails. But now we can`t.

I`m sorry Jem. May you finally be at peace with your foal forever.

To Win The Triple Crown - Part 1   29th Sep 2012
To Win The Triple Crown - Part 1
Horse Fiction The dirt hits my face, flying into my nostrils and stinging my eyes. My rider, Eric, holds the reins tightly, preventing me from going around the horse in front. I run next to the rail boxed in by a chestnut horse to my right and a black horse in front. The horse in front speeds up a little, creating an opening just wide enough for me to squeeze through. I shoot through, ignoring the protests of my rider. The horse to my right startles and trips a little, losing a stride. The black horse surprised to see me, gets distracted and doesn't notice me shooting past him. Eric gives me my head and smacks my rump with a stick. I gladly consent and shoot away from the other horses. After a few strides, he pulls me up and another horse comes up beside me. Eric pats my neck and laughs with the person on the other horse.

Finola - The Comeback   17th Sep 2012
Finola - The Comeback
Shows and Events Finola’s rehabilitation process was a long one. Weeks upon weeks of roadwork to strengthen her tendons and build muscles, and still weeks more of gentle schooling until she was ready to really hit the flatwork hard. At the beginning of the year, Finola had come back relatively unschooled, but after what I can only describe as a ‘schooling bootcamp’, I eventually took her on her first little outing, and came back with a rather surprising first and second place in preliminary level dressage.

When Darkness Sets In - Part 10 - The End
Horse Fiction “How does she look?” I asked John excitedly from the fence line of the riding ring at Red Oaks.

“They look fantastic,” he replied happily and put a arm on my shoulder.

“You sure did good, Anna,” he told me.

“Thanks,” I laughed, “Sure wasn’t easy.”

Barn Party Turns Into Wedding For Two Lucky Horses
 by IggyPogo on 15th Sep 2012
Barn Party Turns Into Wedding For Two Lucky Horses Horse Stories  Suddenly, there was an explosion. Jasmine, overcome with the wedding jitters had ducked under the stall guard and trotted out of the barn. I jogged after her and speaking soothingly to the mare, led her back into the stall where she finally waited patiently for the ceremony to start.

Finally, it did start. Pogo, Jett, and Etch stood in the barn aisle next to me and Macey. We held the guests and I clutched my camera and took some pictures of the monumental event forever etched in Mozart and Jasmine’s lives.

When Darkness Sets In - Part 9   12th Sep 2012
When Darkness Sets In - Part 9
Horse Fiction “My mom left, so I’m afraid you’re stuck with me and we are going to talk whether you like it or not,” I snapped at her. So many weeks of irritation and anger was spilling out of me in a flood, she was not going to turn her back on me! She was not going to refuse my efforts, not this time! I clenched my teeth and began, letting all my feelings flow out of me in the words, “You don’t think I know how you feel? You can see! You can ride! You can do anything you want to but you sit all huddled up in your room. I won’t ever be able to ride again, Midnight is wasting away and I'm only keeping him out of pure selfishness. You just lost your horse, I feel your pain, I feel your anger, and I feel you ebbing away inside. But you cannot leave, I need you Kailee.” The tears flowed fast and furious down my flushed cheeks as I finished.

The Golden Years - Caring For An Older Horse
 by Soquili on 10th Sep 2012
The Golden Years - Caring For An Older Horse Care and Grooming  We all know them. Those “been there, done that”, old horses we all love and that have worked so hard for us their whole lives. But injuries or riding problems may force your horse into being a Pasture Ornament.

My 23-year old gelding, Hank, has a swayed back, swollen arthritic knees, and hiccup in his hind left hock. I knew it was time for him to retire, and enjoy being a horse. And he was. Until, he gained weight - around 50 lbs of weight. He is an easy keeper, but since he is older we have been told by our vet to keep giving some grain and supplements. So, I decided to put him into semi-retirement instead.

Your Horse from the Ground Up - The Lower Leg - Part 2
 by mosquito on 8th Sep 2012
Your Horse from the Ground Up - The Lower Leg - Part 2 Care and Grooming  We’ve taken a look at the solid structures of the lower leg – the bones – now let’s see what makes those bones move. First of all, remember that there are no muscles below the knee or the hock, so there’s no actual ‘engine’ to move these bones. It all comes from a network of ligaments and tendons that connect to muscles higher up the leg. The neat part of that is it makes them easy to see, but the down side it that these delicate structures have very little protection. If you take a close look at your horse’s leg, you’ll see that the cannon bone runs right down the front; this way it can shield the soft tissue structures at the back of the leg.
