  1. Surpass

    I haven't used Surpass, and I haven't bought the OTC voltaren emulgel. I asked the pharmacist at Shoppers Drug Mart about it (couldn't find it on the shelf)--seems to me it was over $10 a tube here...

    The killer auctions always make me sad, but I have never seen anything as horrific as Sugarcreek. I don't know if I could stand to go there & be so helpless to do anything for so many of the horses....

    I'm paying $4.44 per US gallon just now; that sounds better, though, than if I tell you that works out to $5.34 per Canadian gallon.

    I have my horses at home so don't have to drive anywhere to...

    My small pony mares routinely deliver "early". The earliest was 297 days. Foal was born perfectly normal and healthy, nothing at all premature about him. Same mare foaled at 302 days last year. ...

    I would euthanize, rather than donate to a vet school.

    In the meantime, I would be giving this fellow some time off. I would NOT be messing around with trailer loading lessons nor would I be...

    no sh-t, Sherlock, what a brilliant deduction. Quite frankly I don't know of any horse owner than can deal with a twisted gut on his/her own. The thing is to know enough to be able to tell when the...

    Here I have learned that there is little point in calling the vet for colic. The vets--none of them--want to come out & oil a horse, and quite frankly I don't know as there is any one of them that I...

    Keep in mind that many cases of roaring are caused by a long standing respiratory infection--strangles, rhinitis, almost any infection that is slow to clear up. It can be brought on by allergies,...

    I voted "other" because I don't imprint, and my reason is I simply don't see any point in it.

    I'm there to help with the birthing if necessary; I treat the stump, if there are any issues with...

    Count me as another who would NOT take the 'free" horse. I have no hands-on experience with HYPP and that suits me just fine, I intend to keep that status.

    And BTW, just because I have no hands...

    Difficult mares shouldn't be bred? Heck, I've bought several "difficult" mares just be cause they were "difficult"--previous owners couldn't get along with them & so I bought them for a song. ...

    I do clean stalls on Christmas day, though for me the "stalls" are actually loose housing sheds. I normally clean them once a day, and Christmas day is no exception.

    All regular chores get done...

    I had a 3/4 Morgan 1/4 TB gelding. He looked very much like his Morgan sire; his dam looked more like her TB dam than her Morgan sire--she was a big tall, plain mare, quite lean built.

    My gelding...

    I don't know where anyone got those "legal guidelines" for Canada, but they aren't true. I checked into this awhile back and for horses the time they can be in transit without a stop for feed or...

    Is the horse visibly lame? If so I would hope that any potential buyer could see that for themselves. If buyer can't see it for themselves I'm inclined to think I wouldn't bother mentioning it. ...

    I've got one that is much the color of Luna, only he is very, very uniform--he really doesn't have the lighter shading on muzzle & flanks like she does--he's just the lovely "seal" or "chocolate"...

    My point exactly--it is a show barn, and perhaps a show barn just isn't the best place for this particular pony. Perhaps he is very unhappy with what life has become, and would do better somewhere...

    How much turn out does he get? What were his circumstances before you bought him? I'm just wondering how--if at all--his life has changed since you bought him. If he was turned out 24/7 previously...

    I have to ask...just how does a foal "loose" its mom? Mares lose foals, and sometimes foals lose their moms, but "loose" is what happens when horses eat too much rich green alfalfa hay, or maybe too...
