    I know there are other horse people out there. Let's see pics of the herd!

    This is my husband and I (like how I look so at home and he looks scared out of his mind? [​IMG])... I'm on Bo, my 11 yo QH gelding. Ken is on a friend's horse, Petey.

    Here is Star, my 4 yo breeding stock Paint. She has one brown eye and one blue.

    This is Handsome, my first heel horse. He's a year and I'm about five in this picture. I roped on him until he was almost 20. We did High School Rodeo together and have a lot of great memories. I put him down right before I picked up Star.

    Seems like horses & chickens go together! I got my first horse after my Dad passed away, and I've had them ever since. I can never be without one now! I've had several- my favorite was Sunny, an Arab I got when he was 2. I don't have any pix of him on the computer, but he was the best.
    Here's what I have now. Star is a haflinger, and Misty is her daughter; a half- Arabian. I took this just last week!

    You guys would be the folks to ask...
    Recently I was asking my sister-in-law why she no longer keeps chickens, and she said that her riding coach had told her that chickens transmit some disease to horses (but she didn't know what disease). I've been around horses and chickens my whole life, and have never heard of such a thing! In fact, a lot of old farmers like keeping birds around horses because their unpredictable flapping and movements help horses learn to be mellow. I've had chickens nesting in hay racks, and riding on horses' butts, and have never heard of them passing diseases back and forth. Does anyone know what she is talking about?

    Never heard of it. I, too, have had chickens and horses living together (I had one hen that loved to sit on my gelding, Handsome's, back).
    Chickens do a great job of keeping the flies down. I wonder if they could be talking about worms?

    As a kid I also heard it was not OK to keep horse and chickens together because of some health problem, but I no longer remember what it was, sorry!
