    - The golf cart is not a herding tool for you to chase your hard-to-catch horse with until he's tired enough to catch.

    - There is a fee to have your horse held for the farrier. Especially when he...

    Rather than simply call several vets, I'd make an effort to meet a few in person. I know for me, the type of relationship that I have with that person is most important. That along with understanding...

    I fed my TB mare the Pro Force Fiber for 8 months and LOVED it. I've now moved to an area where the Pro Force line is not readily available so I've had to switch to Fuel as that is all I can get...

    OP,

    I am so sorry for your loss and so sorry for the traumatizing end. It does sound like your pony had a reaction to the Ketamine, which is typically given to induce anesthesia and lay the horse...

    OP, so sorry you've had such a rough go of it. Don't beat yourself up for trying to be kind.

    I've been that person on hard times before. I was fresh out of college and had a lease end suddenly...

    I'd also guess stifles/SI. As others suggested, don't give the vet your best guess on where it stems from. Just put the horse on a long line and let the vet see it for themselves.

    From the picture, I'd guess it wasn't a saddle rub, but a wound of some other origin.

    It truly depends on the region. I rode in a region that was questionable at best. I did, however, loan my personal mare out for Zones finals, as that was a different level of rider all together.

    I'm in! I just moved to KY from SC, and the last 4 years in the true south has made me soft... I grew up in PA, so I've done the winter thing before, but I'm not looking forward to it.

    Likely a candidate to check for Cushings, though you'll need to wait until spring. (Too much likelihood of a false positive this time of year)

    Nothing but support and comfort from me on this one. I was in the same boat 2 years ago. I had a 24 year old mare that was costing me an absolute fortune to keep somewhat pasture sound and in a...

    My mare exhibits this behavior when her ulcers flare. It's one of her early indicators that she doesn't feel well, and a quick treatment with Ulcergard completely eliminates the symptoms.

    Just some other things to watch:
    Take her temp.
    Monitor her respiratory rate.
    Any nasal discharge? Color?
    Was she exposed to horses that could possibly be transmitting infection?
    New hay? New...
