Wrong Horse, Wrong Time - Part One   13th Jul 2013
Wrong Horse, Wrong Time - Part One
Horse Stories The problem with having a horse dealer in the family is that the horses they bring through can be a terrible temptation. Such was the case when a little grey Arabian arrived at the barn. He was shipped to a meat auction because he had scared his previous owner out of ever riding again. His game was spook and bolt. He terrified the poor woman who owned him by charging down the side of a paved road. When he spooked he could do an 180-degree turn at lightening speed. One second you’d have a horse under you, the next you wouldn't.

The Many Moods of Mares Explained   12th Jul 2013
The Many Moods of Mares Explained
General Mares are wonderful, amazing creatures. Although usually less ‘flashy’ than their male counterparts, it’s a well-known fact that mares frequently offer double the performance, and often put in twice the effort. Mares simply try harder, and this is what we, as horse people, love about them. What we don’t love, of course, is the moodiness that comes with them. After all, mares have more moods than I could count on my fingers and toes combined.

Understanding Your Dreams of Horses   11th Jul 2013
Understanding Your Dreams of Horses
General Do you dream about horses? I know I do. Some of my most vivid dreams involve horses. One reoccurring dream that I have involves a long-distance ride. The trail usually takes me and the horse through some really unusual terrain, like through a forest, up the stairs in someone's home, down the hall and through the bathroom. I then have to follow the trail markers which are striped ties, and figure out how to get out through a window. Often my horse will turn into a Cocker Spaniel, or very small red tricycle that has a hard time getting up and down the stairs. I never seem to get to the end of the trail, because I can’t find the markers, or my

New Horse Sim Makes 2013 Debut
 by 24601 on 10th Jul 2013
New Horse Sim Makes 2013 Debut Equine Technology  It’s rare in the world of horse sims to find a game that is young enough for new players to stake their claim on. Many sims suffer the effects of overcrowding, making it difficult for new players to catch up to the level of veterans. Are you looking for a new sim game to try? Oxer may be for you. Founded early in the summer of 2013, Oxer’s game focuses on the hunter/jumper community.

Have Unicorns Ever Roamed The Planet [Video]   8th Jul 2013
Have Unicorns Ever Roamed The Planet [Video]
General Before it was discovered that fossils were the mineralized remains of ancient creatures, the spiraled cephalopods were mistaken for unicorn horns. An accompanying full skeleton that included head, body and legs were never found, because cephalpods were sea creatures.

Horses have an extensive fossil record, but none appear to have a single horn from its forehead as a unicorn should. Any unicorn skeletons that were discovered later proved fakes. The most famous of these was created in the 1600s. It’s unknown whether the creator, a scientist named Otto Von Guericke created it for fun or whether he really thought, he was putting together unicorn bones. Von Guericke might have had a sense or humor, or maybe not. After all, he’s most famous for discovering nothing.

I Don’t Know Nothin’ About Birthin’ no Babies!   7th Jul 2013
I Don’t Know Nothin’ About Birthin’ no Babies!
Horse Stories One bitterly cold, windy, snowy April morning, my father called me. 'I have an emergency.' I was about to tell him to hang up and call 911, when he elaborated. 'Sundown had her foal out in the pasture.' I was relieved we didn't need an ambulance, but this particular emergency would have challenges of its own. My sister and mother, who owned the mare were two hours away. What was I going to do?

As I drove I assured myself that horse babies are born outside all the time. However, foals born outside

Sky's Song - A Sakia Short Story
 by Unbridled Sakia on 7th Jul 2013
Sky's Song - A Sakia Short Story Horse Fiction  Sky's eyes glowed brightly as the dark world around him tried despairingly to take the light away from him. When he saw her his eyes bulged, as he watched her take a shallow breath.

Sakia felt a presence near her but the world had gone black long ago. The mare's black eyes were very foggy and her once muscular body was no more than a pile of bones and black skin.

Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part Four
 by Polo the Weirdo on 6th Jul 2013
Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part Four Care and Grooming  As mentioned before, back pain in horses is shockingly common; in fact most horses – even the soundest of them – are likely to be experiencing at least a small degree of back pain simply from the strain of hard work. The rider’s job is to identify the signs of pain in the horse, and then, for Goodness’ sake, do something about it!

The Horse Eye and How A Horse Views Our World   4th Jul 2013
The Horse Eye and How A Horse Views Our World
General Many people think that animals, including horses see in shades of grey. This isn't true. Horses may not see some colors as vividly as we do, because they can only see two visible wavelengths in the color spectrum, whereas we can see three. That means their vision is similar to people who are colorblind. Your horse might not be able to distinguish orange from red. They can, however, see the green grass and the blue sky.

What Not To Feed A Horse   2nd Jul 2013
What Not To Feed A Horse
Care and Grooming I like to spoil my horse a bit, and I usually take a bag of carrots to the barn with me. She’s picky, so apples don’t cut it. However, some horses will eat anything. Sometimes, they’ll eat things that aren't good for them. What shouldn't you feed a horse? Here are a few things you might want to avoid.

Throwing those clippings, old plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables over the fence after you've mowed the lawn or cleaned up the garden may seem like a good way of recycling and composting. But, clippings and garden refuse may be bad news for your horse

Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part Three
 by Polo the Weirdo on 30th Jun 2013
Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part Three Care and Grooming  A horse with a sore back can react in a number of different ways, each varying vastly depending on the nature of the horse and the intensity of the pain. Time and again, when told of a horse that is acting even slightly out of the ordinary, the go-to response of any horseperson would be, 'Well, have you checked his back?' It is common knowledge that back pain in a horse is the leading cause of performance and behavioural issues, but how can you know if your horse is, in fact, sore?

What Bugs You About Hollywood Horses   28th Jun 2013
What Bugs You About Hollywood Horses
General On July 3, the Disney movie 'The Lone Ranger' hits the theatres. I’m not a movie goer, but having viewed the trailers and out takes, I think I may make an effort to see this one. It looks campy and fun in the typical over-the-top Disney fashion, and there’s Johnny Depp covered in paint. Yes, please!

If there is anything will bother me about this movie, it will be the horses. Watch any movie and you’ll see when it comes to the horses, there’s a wide gap between reality and Hollywood.

Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part Two
 by Polo the Weirdo on 26th Jun 2013
Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part Two Care and Grooming  Believe it or not, an ill-fitting saddle is not the only cause of back pain in horses, although it is the leading one. Back pain can be caused by a number of different things. The following are a few prime examples. A rider who sits skew – as so many of us do – can cause the horse’s back to twist, or cause the saddle to sit incorrectly across the spine. This puts more pressure on one side of a horse’s back, forcing it to compensate and causing injury.

How to Get a Free Horse   24th Jun 2013
How to Get a Free Horse
General Have you always wanted a horse but can't afford the purchase price? There are ways to get horses for free. There is an old saying of course, never look a gift horse in the mouth. That’s because if someone was giving a horse away, it was likely because the horse was too elderly to be useful. If you do find a free horse, however, you may actually want to look into its mouth, because you'll want to have an idea of how old the horse is, and you'll want to know if the first expense you'll have is a bill with an equine dentist. You may also have heard the old saying, there's no such thing as a free ride. That's something to keep in mind too, because even though you're

Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part One   23rd Jun 2013
Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part One
Care and Grooming When it comes to selecting a saddle, any knowledgeable horse person will tell you that this is a task not to be taken lightly. The fit of a saddle can make or break a horse’s performance, and a poorly fitting one can cause severe injuries to a horse over time. Choosing a saddle is not just about what looks good on the horse, or what’s the prettiest colour. Sure, those baby pink synthetic saddles being spewed out of a Chinese factory by the thousand may look sufficiently fabulous for your riding needs, but when your horse starts bucking from pain caused by a poorly-shaped saddle, the fact that your saddle is pink is not going to help
