    When I had Simon, he was really itchy. Rubbed part of his mane off, and rubbed himself raw in little places on his neck. I finally put a fly sheet on him, figuring any discomfort from heat was...

    I also want to add that those who think it is all about training seem a bit naive to me about showing. Some horses are the type who will march right in and get down to business and some aren't. I...

    I apologize for not reading the whole thread to see if you have said anything about fly sheets, but that was my solution for a horse I used to have that was miserable with a gnat allergy. Made a...

    I have given Legend to my horses, and felt an immediate (as in next day) difference. It is my understanding that it is a very effective anti-inflammatory. I don't use it to really cure or prevent...

    I use thinning scissors as the others have suggested. I cut along the bottom to the general length I want, maybe a bit longer. Then I flip the mane to the other side and cut off the longest hairs...

    My horse is difficult to keep sound on his RF. I worry constantly, and imagine he feels off. But he does great in his hack classes, so lots of judges think he looks ok.

    Thinline! I am like you, I tried a horse and could not figure out why I felt like I was on a trampoline. Kept having to regain the front to back balance of my upper body. Then when we untacked I...

    Can you people not understand the difference between the law and ethics? The law/rules are outer boundaries of behavior. Under our constitution, laws must be clear and concise so people can have a...

    Here is the Smartpak one. I don't like reddish bridles, and this one oiled to a nice even dark brown. It was too much bridle for this horse (he is smallish and can wear cob size) but it looked...

    Try some puffies for his ears. I have one that gets a little hypervigilent when it is windy and ear puffs seem to help him.

    I cannot ever recall disagreeing with wildlifer on this type of matter, but I have had to roll up the bottom of my wire mesh fence to make fawn getaways. My dogs do not free roam, but on at least...

    Yes, maybe instead of focussing on your fear of mr coyote, concentrate your energy on your duty to protect your pets in whatever environment you have chosen to put them in.

    I stole my RAO horse's Smartbreathe to give to my new horse, who was snorting and coughing. I saw some improvement right away and increased improvement to even now, three weeks later. He still...

    I use 22's all the time for Adequan and Pentosan. Separate needles to draw and to inject. Have to push a little hard, but seems less bothersome to the horses. I make sure the vial is at room temp...

    I am a fan of the thinline with the cotton quilt under. It has openings so that you can insert shims. I modified a thinline front shim to accomodate my horses scapula, and he seems very happy with...

    Thank you findeight. He is fine this afternoon. He laid down, rested for a few minutes, and got back up at least four times this morning. Vet ok'd some ulcergard, so maybe that helped.

    Yes, that was my original intent -- to ask about the actual bed being too high. I see now that my gooseneck can be adjusted, but seems like I still want the unloaded trailer to be relatively level,...

    Many people do not seem to understand the difference between what is "legal" and ethical guidelines. I have not studied the more recent posts, but if the AHSA has finally clarified that their vague...
