  4. Rehoming / Giveaways For Critters

    Rehoming / Giveaways for Critters Horses, Ponies, Long-Ears, Cats, Dogs, hobby farm stock (goats, pigs, fowl, etc.) and other household pets (ferret, snake, turtle, etc.). ---------------------------------------------------------- Post your "re-homing" critters here! All postings/transactions MUST BE FREE of monetary value. This is only for "giveaway" situations and NOT FOR SALE. Post your STATE first and a very descriptive commentary on the animal you are giving away. Post pictures directly in your descriptive post, not in multiple places. (Or provide a web link to images) All postings are AT YOUR OWN RISK. Communication via private messages is greatly encouraged so you find the right home. The liability lies on the parties involved. Horsecity.com is not responsible for deals gone bad. Illegal exotics should not be listed. Please do not break the law in your state, county or city. Please DELETE your posting once the animal has found a new home so we have less to sort through. If you don't know how, please ask Admin and we'll be happy to do it for you. "LOOKING FOR" postings are welcome as long as it is a giveaway situation. If you are unsure if you should post, please send me a message so I can help. Thanks and good luck to all our critters!
  5. Who's on "time-out, standing-in-the-corner or banned" We're starting something new. We've had quite a few discussions on the BB about making warnings and punishments "public" and the general consensus seems to be in favor of this kind of communication. As of today, we will be making rule infractions public and make a public note of members that are on suspension or "time out" and who are banned. This will not be detailed information about the member and we will not share private communications but it will serve as a reference for Horsecity.com Bulletin Board members and visitors. We also hope it will help to clarify our Moderation and Administrative direction with respect to rule enforcement. The term "banned" may be extreme or even misleading if the person is on a "time out" for a certain number of days. This is however, the only way we can restrict a member from certain portions of the site. Members will receive notice via email of their status and details of the rule infractions. The details are not up for public discussion or debate and the details will not be listed here. Horsecity.com Moderators and Admin reserve the right to modify or change this system at any time. We hope this helps to create a better understanding for all members but if it's not working out we will make additional adjustments.

  6. 108th Kentucky State Fair World?s Championship Horse Show will be held in Louisville, KY, August 21-27, 2011 Author: Kentucky State Fair news Louisville, KY - For the 108th year American Saddlebred Horses, Roadster Horses and Hackney/Harness Ponies will come to the Kentucky State Fair to compete in order to be called a World?s Champion, a World?s Champion of Champion, or the most desired title a World?s Grand Champion. The first show was in 1902 with the title of World?s Champion being designated in 1914. When the word Louisville is said to this group of people it doesn?t mean the Kentucky Derby, it means the green shaving, the yellow mums forming a horseshoe in the center of the ring, the riding up Stopher Walk to the make-up ring and then going down the schute, with the fairgoers hanging over the railing, into the cool air of Freedom Hall. Showing against the best horses in their division for the title of World?s Champion. This is what everyone that shows Saddlebred horses, Roadster horses and/or Hackney ponies wish to do, ride on the green shavings and experience the excitement and thrill of winning a ribbon, any ribbon, in Freedom Hall. If you are fortunate enough to become a World?s Champion of Champions or a World?s Grand Champion your horses name as well as your own will be engraved on the sterling silver trophies some of which are almost one hundred years old, that have been given in that class in memory of past winners. The winner of each World?s Champion of Champions and the World?s Grand Champion is draped with a blanket of flower, as well as a tri-color ribbon for the owner and trainer of the entry, making a very striking and beautiful victory pass picture to be cherished for a lifetime. This horse spectacle is not like some, where there is very little or no applause during the class. The spectators love to show their support of their favorite horse by being very vocal with cheering and clapping. In fact the last class of the show the World?s Grand Champion Five Gaited reminds many of a basketball game between two intense rivals, the cheering fills the huge arena and at time it being difficult to hear the announcer call the gaits. But if the crowd doesn?t agree with a winner they don?t hesitate to show their support of the one that think should have won by cheering loudly when it is called up to receive the ribbon. It is not a quiet sedate crowd, but one that shows their support as well as their appreciation for the horse?s performances. When you consider the fact that there will be almost 2,000 horses entered in the show and each horse will average five people with it that makes for a large group of people who will be in Louisville for at least ten days. The economic impact for this show would quite possibly run in the range of ten to fifteen million dollars, making it very important to the city?s economy. The show has an air of excitement that is hard to describe with the people, at night, dressed in their best, including formals on Saturday night. It follows traditions laid down over one hundred years ago, with the officials in the ring wearing tuxedoes and the red coats of the ringmasters makes for a very impressive sight. If you would like to view this fantastic spectacle you can do so by both coming to the fair in the daytime and going into Freedom Hall for a day of free horse shows, but for a night show you will need tickets.

  7. Feeding The Easy Keeper

    Great article on "Feeding the Easy Keeper" http://horsecity.com/articles/care-health/15508-feeding-the-easy-keeper
  8. Nikki- Admins- Spam Post

    Thanks! Next time could you please "report" the post? I don't always see threads like this and that way another Admin can hit it as well.
  9. It's a word censor. It's not a picture censor.
  10. It's a spam bot, not a real person. It's a program written to spam any given forum with oodles of posts. It's gone now. That's the first one I've seen in about two years here. Needless to say I'm not very impressed with the software change.

    Now we know why you own mares! Ha ha! Do they get their hooves painted?
  12. 2013 Fashion Trend In The Hunter Ring?

    I like it. It would look great with my big red ponytail. But I also think Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum's red boots are stunningly beautiful. I'm not into sparkly stuff but I could do paisley.
  13. Hyperlipemia In Mules And Donkeys

    I thought I'd post this here because it pertains to our long-eared friends and I'm guessing it might be a good FYI sort of thing. Dr. Juliet Getty wrote this article on "fat" for our health section and this was a question posed to her after publishing it... I didn't know about Hyperlipemia and I think our donkey has it for sure. Find out about Dr. Getty and read more here >> http://horsecity.com...re-health/16120
  14. Why Can't I Copy/paste?

    Some websites don't allow you to copy things. If you are copying from an outside source I can't help you. It's either an issue with the site or your browser/device. I don't know why GCC is not the same as the other forums here on HC. They all "act" the same. I guess it depends on where you are pulling the content from?
  15. Thank You Nikki!

    No problem. I knew it was an easy fix, I just couldn't find it!
  16. Why Can't I Copy/paste?

    You need to be much more specific. What are you trying to copy? An article?
  17. Why a pony for Christmas might be a bad idea. Ha ha ha! :rotf: Ponies can be SO naughty!
  18. Sorry Folks!

    Sorry we've been up and down so much. My email has been down and we had to unexpectedly change servers and it didn't go as well as planned. We should be back up fine now but you might see some additional changes as we upgrade some software stuff. Thanks for your patience!
  19. FYI - Nutrena's site says: "All Nutrena horse feeds contain soy in varying amounts." I pulled a bit of older info from Dr. Juliet Getty's site http://gettyequinenutrition.biz/ She regularly contributes some great articles to Horsecity.com and I don't think she will mind me mentioning this: I'm going to email her since we just talked this week and see if she will contribute to this thread a little. She always stresses the importance of the Omega 3s and I think that my horses have always done better with that supplemented as well.

The Equipride has Omega 3 which might mean a difference for your mare. Equipride is a "top dress" while the McCauley's is a pelleted balancer. Is that what you are going for?
  21. Sorry Folks!

    No Heidi it's not. We appear to be up FOR NOW... My apologies for the lack of service here. We don't host the BB or run the software so we're at their mercy. They keep telling me it's "fixed" and then it breaks again.
  22. What The Heck Is Wrong With The Hc Contest?

    We've been tinkering around with this a bit more. Could the folks that had issues test it again? Unfortunately I've been unable to duplicate any issues on my side. Thanks!!! http://horsecity.com/club
