    I had really good luck with Blue Seal Sentinel Sr for my toothless old gal. She went to her reward last winter at 30, in good weight, but just lay down for a nap on a sunny winter afternoon and...

    My home brew has been a tube of diaper rash cream, a tube of vaginal cream (miconazol), and a squirt of betadine. Clean area well with an anti-fungal shampoo and dry well, then apply the Brew.

    When I galloped Lusitanos and PRE's in Portugal and Spain while horse trekking, we had a good gallop on but they did not do that whole drop down and open up like my Tbs and QHs at home. I think it is...

    It is easy to see lots of the XC without huge walks because it is basically loops in two large fields; Fair Hill is much more sprawling.

    Have your saddle fit rechecked if this is a new behavior in an otherwise sensible horse. I had a mare who started some shenanigans after fences and swapping saddles solved the issue--it was pinching...

    My ideal plan is thusly:

    Two Years: ground work, mostly long lines or driving so not endless circles, spend about 4 weeks getting it down. Then sit on them a few times. Back out to pasture.

    My little old QH man is 14.3 on his withers and 15.2 on his butt. SO, we are indeed majorly downhill!

    However, he does not lean, he is light in the bridle, and he is able to sit down and use that...

    I have *seven* mares. I won't even look at a gelding when I shop.

    1) Ask, don't tell.
