    I guess if the parties know up front how many professionals are getting a cut and what the actual price of the horse is - which many times is not the case - who pays will depend on who really wants...

    That would be the standard arrangement. There are always exceptions. For example, there may be multiple professionals involved in a deal. In that case, expect everyone to put their hands out for a...

    I think the quandry is, if you don't medicate when everyone else does, you have now put yourself at a disadvantage. Sure your horses can perform without meds, but if meds give that extra edge (that...

    I posted this back in November, and for what it's worth, will repost it here. My used Devoucoux was 7 or 8 years old when I got it. I use it on multiple horses, typically five to six days/week.

    Well, sorry, I just disagree. Yes, perhaps you can say that of some of the folks who do nothing but follow the circuit year after year with a string of horses. But that's not everyone. In fact,...

    Three months is nowhere near oh, I don't know, 10 years. There are many competitors who sacrifice a great deal to show on these circuits, and carrying an older horse - particularly one who shows the...

    Hmm. Look at it this way: it hasn't really been a year if she has re-injured herself a few times. Have you thought about trying reserpine or another long-acting tranquilizer to keep her calm? I do...

    Thanks leakyb, I will add that one to the list.



    I hadn't thought of that; it's certainly a possibility. I do think the Rhino outer material is sturdier than it used to be. I had an early...

    I posted on another thread that I had the same experience. I purchased a new Rambo and a new Rhino last season and noticed that already they are flatter and not as warm. I think I am going to try...

    I think this is particularly true of successful show horses who are used to a great deal of attention and adulation. They still enjoy being part of the action and having their few minutes in the...

    I have a Duo and it's fine. It is nice to be able to wash the liner at home. But I really prefer my older, heavyweight Rambo Supreme. I agree that the Duo doesn't seem as warm as the regular...

    I have done allergy testing and shots and apart from lightening my wallet and being a PITA, the shots did nothing. Now older, this same horse does very well on AniHist. Ventipulmin worked great of...

    For what it's worth, I do not think $700 is out of line to have upper and lower hocks done on both legs when you factor in a farm call, sedatives, injections and anti-inflammatories.

    Personally I love beet pulp, but it really is a PITA. What about Dengie-type products? For example: http://http://lucernefarms.com/feeds_forage.shtml. There is also a molasses free product:...

    If you trust your vet, who has presumably been seeing the horse regularly for chiro appointments and most recently worked him up, I'd follow the vet's advice. After all, you paid for his opinion,...

    I've always heard that referred to as renting a dry stall or self care. Personally, I would expect it to include electricity and water, as that should be built into the cost of the dry stall.
