Needing Information [27 Mar 2008|09:51am]

southern_goth
Hi I'm working on a book and I wanted to ask a qestion and maybe be pointed in the right direction.

How long can you run a horse before you have to rest it?
How long can you trot a horse before you have to rest it?
How long can you walk a horse before you have to rest it?

I am of course speaking of a horse somewhere between 5 and 10 years of age.

Thank you

Tanner-Curious. [27 Jan 2008|09:12pm]

So you cannot help the horses you fall in love with.

Long Story Short

I lived in Washington last summer and fell in love with a bright, energetic, slightly wild-but now tame, morgan(???-unkown due to his being rescued from a slaughter house) gelding...

I contacted the landlord of the place he and I lived and Tanner is still for sale. Just for curiousity's sake, does anyone know of a website I can get quotes for horse transport from Washington to Texas... or rent a horse/livestock trailer???

Anyone from Lubbock? [08 May 2007|01:46pm]

Does anyone know of a barn in the Levelland/Lubbock area that they would recommend for lessons? I'm doing an internship in Levelland with a petroleum engineering company and don't want to give up riding for 3 months. I do hunter/jumpers by the way. :) Thank you for any information you have!

I was wondering if anyone knew of any horseback riding lessons in the lubbock area? Specifically western and even more specifically reining... 

If not western I'm willing to dabble in a bit of english...

Thanks in advance!

Horse Protection Group Calls for Help After Panhandle Fires [29 Mar 2006|04:10pm]

fieryredhead
From the Lone Star Equine Resque's website:

Wildfires ravaged 1 million acres of the Texas Panhandle two weeks ago, killing 10,000 cows and horses, and leaving hundreds more in need of urgent help.

Jerry Finch, President of Habitat for Horses based in the Houston area, says that over 100 horses are badly injured and need immediate care, while many others are less severely hurt. “So far, we know of over 100 horses that must have attention now,” Finch says. “There are a lot of surviving horses that have been badly burned. Also several newborn foals can’t nurse because of their mothers’ burns. It’s just too painful for these mares to allow their foals to suckle.”

Habitat for Horses, an equine protection group organized in 1998 as a non-profit 501(c)(3), began assessing needs in the Panhandle last week. The group was recognized last year by Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine for its efforts following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Counties are devastated Horse owners, while doing their best to care for their own, have an overwhelmingly difficult task. Many in the region lost their homes, barns and livestock.

“Barns, tack rooms, and necessary feed and supplies have all been incinerated,” explains Finch. Among those counties requesting assistance are Gray, Wheeler, Roberts, Hutchison, Hemphill and Carson.

Says 17-year old Tara Thomas in Gray County, “It’d be good if some folks who can would just pitch in. It’s not just hay and feed. We need so much. Buckets to put the feed in, halters, lead ropes, medical supplies….” Tara and her family lost their home, barn, fences, cattle, several vehicles, and two horses in the fire. Six horses that survived were severely burned. “It takes all day to just feed and doctor animals,” says Susie Thomas, Tara’s mother, “and I mean long days. By the time we finish, it’s dark again.”

Rebecca Simmons, a fifth generation resident of the area was luckier than the Thomas family, but she is worried. “The fields are blowing a fine black soot,” says Simmons who has a degree in equine science. “The vet will tell you that what we are facing next is animals dying of respiratory problems and weakened immune systems.”

Recent winter-like weather in the Panhandle has created a need for horse blankets. Ranch horses that are not normally blanketed now lack the shelter of trees or barns. Smoke inhalation coupled with cold and winds have put horses at further risk.

Donations of urgently needed supplies are being coordinated through the Habitat for Horses/Lone Star Equine Rescue members network and Dr. Leanne Hillhouse, a Panhandle veterinarian.

Tax-deductible cash donations may be sent directly to Habitat for Horses at www.habitatforhorses.org and www.lser.org or mailed to Habitat for Horses/LSER, P.O Box 213, Hitchcock, TX 77563. Further inquiries may be made at 866-434-5737.

“There’s not a lot of time for some of these horses,” says Finch. “If people want to help, they really have to do it now.”

Habitat for Horses/Lone Star Equine Rescue is a 501.c.3 nonprofit covering Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma with around 1,000 dedicated members. They provide equine rescue services to law enforcement agencies throughout the state of Texas, an active equine adoption program, an equine education center and equine-assisted services to youths and adults. For more information, contact HfH/LSER at 866-434-5737.

hi, i'm new to lj, i am a horse person. i have 4 horses and 1 donkey. i adopted them a few years ago from the BLM. when we got them they were yearlings,and wild as hell. we also could not turn them out into the pastures, had to keep them in a smaller holding area until we had them tamed and able to catch them. the first night we built a fire and stayed out by the pen all night. every-now and then one of us would go into the pen and just stand or sit, allowing them to come to us and for them to see they were not in danger. By morning we were able to touch their face and stroke it. as days went on they trusted us more and more. by the end of the month we were able to give them more room little by little we were getting them used to fencing eventually we were able to turn them out into the pasture. they loved it we have 37 acres and they explored every inch of it. as of today they are so gentle and one of the mares had a baby, i was there for the whole thing and was able to imprint her. she is now 1 year old, she is the most precious thing and will be so easy to train. she has no fear of anything. imprinting makes a big difference,and mom was great she trusted me so much with her baby i was able to do what i wanted when baby was little. Mustangs are truly a trusting animal, if you gain the trust of a mustang you are able to do anything with them. its amazing they dont react like a domestic horse.
i love them dearly.

Trailer wanted! [23 Jan 2006|11:31am]

fieryredhead
[ mood | hopeful ]

Hello Everyone!

Thought I would post here as well on the offchance someone has a trailer that would meet my needs. I am looking for a reasonably priced bumper pull trailer with no ramp; has to be at least 7 ft tall to fit my 17 hand gelding. Steel ok. Slant or straight with removeable barrier; I only have one horse but I want him to have the most room possible. The most I can afford is $2500.

Before you ask or suggest websites I think I have been to them all. Ebay, craigslist, equine,com, horsetrailerworld.com, usedtrailers.com, tacktrader.com, horsetopia.com... I could go on. ;) I have been talking to a few sellers but most don't have what I need or want.

Willing to trade or partial trade for custom tailoring and costuming services; I make high quality gowns (lots of wedding gown experience) and costumes for sale and have many awards under my belt. See my website at www.crimsonvision.net for examples; Im getting into making Western horsemanship clothing now as well. Can also create horse costumes if desired; working on an Arabian Native Tack one currently.

I am located in the DFW, TX area but am willing to travel a few hours to pick up a good deal. Thanks!

Does anyone know of any homes for rent/lease in the central Texas area? Anywhere from Austin to North San Antonio regions?? Horses allowed would be a bonus but dog absolutely have to be allowed. Any amount of acreage would be fine but i'm becomming desperate enough to move into a subdivision in a smaller town. We only have about 2 weeks left before we have to move back to Texas (I moved to nevada for 4 months after I was married). Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!

fieryredhead
I just posted some western goodies on ebay if anyone is interested!

http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZelizabetadellarosaQQhtZ-1

BTW, I'm pretty clueless on the western stuff; these were either gifts or bought when I was thinking about trying western but never got into it so please forgive me if the description is lacking! :p

And don't forget to check out the costumes I have on there for sale; Halloween is right around the corner! Will be putting my Elizabeth Gold Gown from Pirates of the Caribbean gown back up there soon; the Ever After Just Breathe gown I had on there sold! :)

Dressage trainers in Dallas area? [03 Jun 2005|02:38pm]

fieryredhead
[ mood | hopeful ]

I board my gelding in Lewisville at a very low key barn owned by an old cowboy. I've been there two weeks and I love it. The one thing I am lacking is a trainer. Are there trainers out there that travel to other peoples barns? I would like to train in dressage; I started (barely) in it years ago and I would very much like to pick it up again.

Trailering my guy isn't an option at this point in time; the only trailer I have access to is too small for him to use. :( (BTW, If anyone happens to know of a 7 ft tall warmblood trailer for sale at a reasonable price lemme know!)

Looking online at the Dallas Dressage club website I found one advertisment that has raised my interest; a trainer named Kass Lockhart. Anyone hear of her? Thoughts? I'm not sure if she travels though; I tried to email her but it came back and I can't call until after I get out of work. :p
