How to Feed a Starving or Malnourished Horse
8th Feb 2014   |   Care and Grooming   |   Saferaphus
One of the things I miss about having my own pastures is that I enjoyed rehabilitating horses that were down in condition. There is something very satisfying about watching the sharp angles of a skinny horse round out, life come back into their eye and energy return to their stri ...

Terrible Horse Names

Like most of you, I take a lot of care when naming a horse. I try to match the name to the horse's nature or appearance. I like names that are dignified, yet easy to say. I think names are important. But every now and then I come across a horse name that makes me ask, 'what we're ...

I've had to spend some time in the city lately, and I can't say I've particularly enjoyed the experience. With its crowded sidewalks, bumper-to-bumper traffic, car exhaust and strange smells, potholes and streetcar tracks, flashing lights, waving signs and noise, noise, noise. Th ...

A Bit About Curb Chains and Straps
22nd Jan 2014   |   General   |   Saferaphus

In terms of really huge equestrian events, 2013 was a relatively quiet year. The excitement of the 2012 Olympics was long over and the 2011 Pan-American games a dusty memory. The last World Equestrian Games was held in 2010. Of course, the Quarter Horse Congress is an annual even ...

The Guide to Raising Horses: Digestion
12th Jan 2014   |   Care and Grooming   |   Cruisin Past Curfew

Does My Horse Have Colic
6th Jan 2014   |   Care and Grooming   |   Saferaphus
I swear if I stare at a horse long enough, it will either become sick or lame. As I over-analyze every move, the nuance of a tail flick, a shortened stride, or a momentary odd way of standing, my mind races to the cause. Never mind that the tail flick means there was a biting fly ...

Memories of My First Pony
27th Dec 2013   |   Horse Stories   |   Saferaphus
After going through some old photos recently, I was reminded of my very first pony. Her name was Dolly. She was a small grey pony, not particularly kind to children or well trained. I was about four or five when I got her, and basically, I was let loose to ride barefoot and helme ...
