Tying a hackamore can be done a couple of ways. As I’m on making my, now, third hackamore horse, I don’t really have that much experience in tying one. I figure the more times I do it the better I will get, and instead of attempting to explain it, I’ll just let the video below […]

Horse with Mouth Problems in A Sweat

November 28, 2014

When a bridled horse is having problems with it’s mouth, it has many ways of showing it. Some examples would be slobbering, fighting their head, rearing, chomping at the bit, opening their mouth when reins are pulled, head shaking, bucking, and not moving out normally. Sometimes though, the reaction is so subtle that it takes […]

I had a piece of heaven once when I was in Texas. Heaven came in the form of a muffin. A muffin with sausage, cheddar cheese, herbs and jalapeno peppers. And the world said, Amen. I’m not a huge muffin fan, so I figured I could make the same thing with a biscuit – which […]
