    I think my dragster was $550 delivered, but that was ten years ago. They have different sizes and mine is six feet wide, and I do believe with two people you can carry it 50ft, but I'd be careful...

    Having had a few horses with EPSM with varying symptoms, I agree that this certainly doesn't sound like a typical case. If there is "tying up" that should be indicated in blood work which I'd...

    We now have a Kiser Edge, but I still love and use the Dragster which is a solid triangle with a ton of teeth on one side and smooth to seal an arena on the other. I keep it propped up and tied to a...

    It's a bit out there, but you might try and see if you can find a NAET practitioner that works with animals in your area. From the recent reading I've done, it seems pretty amazing, but...

    Personally, I like the solid slanted wall type round pen. Keeps the small dogs out and the sand in! http://www.rockingwmfg.com/

    I think my 60' was $3600 back ten years ago. Well worth it...

    As far as vets prescribing it for dogs or lack of... I think it seems expensive compared to Rimadyl, etc., but I have found that our old, arthritic 60 pound dog does super on the quarter tab dose...

    The nice thing about Previcox is that you can usually get the same or better results of daily bute even if you only give it every other day. I think I worked it out for someone at about 35 cents per...

    It helps if the footing is already slightly damp, but all I do is flip my dragster upside down to the non-tooth side so it smooths and packs down the footing. That way the rain kind of just sheets...

    I have come to really love and appreciate my Permaflex arena. Although we are in a drought now, it has been through some El NiƱo years where it rained for days on end and I really never saw it...

    Depends on what would make it worth your while. Architecturally, it really isn't anything too exciting. There is some nice landscaping, but nothing to par with many East Coast and European barns. ...

    Do those of you that have the Pro-lite and Ogilvy use them both for jumping and dressage? I find my seat aids seem muddled for my Thoroughbred when I use the Thinline, so wondered if it might be the...

    My gelding seemed to go through a similar pattern. He paced, wasn't getting REM sleep, lost significant weight, would occasionally "fall" literally to sleep in the turnout and look like he was...

    I tried it for my one EPSM mare who also is prone to scratches and respiratory issues and is reactive to alfalfa and soy. My thought was that since she had several rounds of antibiotics she might...

    Hate to speak for my vets, but from what I recall, I think it was because she was extrapolating from a study using rats as well as a study where IR was induced using a high fat diet in Thoroughbreds....

    My vets find Kellon's research deeply flawed, and many horses that are PSSM/EPSM are genetically the types that get insulin resistance anyway, even if they never are on a high fat diet.

  17. Body Builder $72 vs More Muscle $25, both 32oz?

    So why such a big price difference? Anyone tried both and felt one was better than the other? I know I don't like the parabens and corn oil in the Body Builder, but couldn't find the full list of...

    Rood & Riddle make an alfalfa flavored powdered Ranitidine as well as a liquid, for those picky horses who don't like the pills or find omeprazole too bitter.

    There are also horses who still have severe ulcers after thirty days of Gastroguard. I have heard of a few that needed three months to scope clean, so hard to say if perhaps your horse would have...

    With summer here, is there any way you can find a brave teenager with a good seat to maybe half lease your horse while you add some alfalfa into his diet? He just needs to learn to behave even when...
