    SmartGI Ultra pellets

    Anybody tried this supplement with their horse?

    We have a horse who was treated with GastroGard in the past. I was thinking of trying SmartGut or SmartGut Ultra when I happened to come across the...
  2. MVP Gastro-plex - similar to SmartGut?

    Has anyone tried this supplement? It seems similar to SmartGut or SmartGut Ultra.

  3. Ulcers in starvation cases/rescue horses

    We hear a lot about ulcers in racehorses and performance horses. Does anyone have experience with ulcers in starvation cases or rescue horses? Since they have had a lack of food in their stomachs...
  4. Spray-on re-waterproofing for horse blankets

    I'm looking for a spray-on re-waterproofer for horse blankets. It does need to be a spray-on.

    So far my choices seem to be Scotchgard, Nikwax, or Tectron. I've used the Tectron before, and it...

    We decided to try Smartpak's SmartBreathe since it's a pelleted supplement - but we're open to trying others if needed! For anyone who has used SmartBreathe successfully, when did you start seeing...

    Thank you! I was considering Freeway or Smart Breathe - maybe we'll give one a try!
  7. Allergy/respiratory supplement for horse allergies - not a cough

    We have a horse who seems to develop allergies this time of year. There's no coughing or wheezing, but there's a lot of snorting and...well...snot! :lol:

    I did a search and found a lot of...
  8. Managing senior horses at boarding barns

    I'm curious to hear how barn managers manage additional needs for senior horses - or if you're the owner, what works for you and your horse.

    Sometimes an older horse may need soaked feed, softer...
  9. Plus size breeches with very short inseam

    Any recommendations for plus size breeches with exceptionally short inseams? Knee patch would be fine, they don't have to be full seats. Can also be regular schooling breeches, don't have to be...
  10. Triple Crown Senior storage in the summer

    I've started feeding Triple Crown Senior, and my horses really like it. However, I'm worried about storing it in the hot, humid summer. It's a very moist feed which makes it great for the seniors,...
  11. Horse lifts a front hoof after running around - not lame, looks like pawing

    This is probably a stupid question, but has anyone seen a horse do this before? We have a horse who will run around freely in the pasture, and when she stops, she'll lift one front hoof and sort of...
  12. Just wanted to post an update. After some...

    Just wanted to post an update. After some discussion, we decided to put the horse on a vitamin E and selenium supplement for just a few weeks as a trial. There is 1 mg of selenium in the supplement...

    Soft grooming tool for muddy legs

    Hi! I'm looking for a soft curry/grooming tool to use on muddy legs. So it needs to be strong enough to loosen the mud/manure but not hard on legs. I find that the jelly scrubbers get too stiff in...
  14. I read a little more online and checked out the...

    I read a little more online and checked out the KER site - it sounds like we're pretty low in selenium here, and we don't feed enough grain to make up for it. I'll talk to my vet first, but I do...
  15. Starhouse, how long has your horse been on the...

    Starhouse, how long has your horse been on the supplement, and how long did it take for you to see a difference in your horse's sensitivity?
  16. Thanks for the responses. We are in a selenium...

    Thanks for the responses. We are in a selenium deficient area, and the horse eats local hay, although I realize that you don't know for sure without testing the hay. We feed less than 1/2 pound of...
  17. Deciding to feed a vitamin E/selenium supplement

    If you feed one, what made you decide to feed a vitamin E/selenium supplement? Was it that you live in a selenium deficient area? Was it EPM or EPSM? Was it a horse that was just NQR?

    I really like TC Senior for my older guys. I try to break enough up at one feeding to be ready for the next feeding.

    Actually I've noticed that it's even been pretty brick-like this summer -...
  19. Thanks everybody, for chiming in. Some time ago...

    Thanks everybody, for chiming in. Some time ago I did talk to a massage therapist who told me it was a normal reflex, but I know a lot of other horses who don't seem to flinch like that.

    Rides...
  20. Touch the point of the hip, horse flinches in lumbar vertebrae - thoughts?

    This horse does not appear to be lame, but when you touch the point of the hip (on both sides), the horse flinches in the lumbar vertebrae. The horse is rarely ridden, so I don't know that saddle...

    I really wish I had an answer for this thread. We have a horse who has done the same thing - gone from sensible to spooky due to a tough move (bad situation, lost weight, a lot of anxiety). I'm...
  23. Zephyr's Garden? Other bug bite creams?

    Anyone use Zephyr's Garden products? They were recommended to me, especially the Stop the Itch Salve, since the bugs have been really bad this year and the horses are itchy.

    Are there other bug...
  24. Broken forward hoof/pastern axis (the coon foot)

    What kind of trimming/shoeing can be done to help with a broken forward hoof/pastern axis (coon foot)? Keeping the toes short? Should anything special be done with the heels (like wedging)?

    I...

    Frog wedge in the Soft Ride boots

    We've been looking at getting a pair of Soft Ride boots with the special orthotics. However, the orthotics seem to have a very thick frog support and almost look like they wedge the horse onto its...
