    My old broken gimp lies down ~10+ hours a day. I bed his stall deeply with the flake shavings (not the fine) on top of rubber mats, which has helped greatly. He starts to get bedsores on his knees...

    This for sure.
    I, too, have an oldie with a substantial injury to a hind. He is a solid "gimp", so much so that even non horse people notice. But it's more mechanically lame than pain-lame, and he...

    I just do CBCs & chems on my old guys (21 & 28 years old) every 6 months. IME, it's more important to have an established history of values rather than a one-time check to monitor any changes. My old...

    Not sure what would cause the change in behavior, but I will say that I didn't find out my "gelding" was a unilateral cryptorchid until he was 17 years old. I'd ridden him since he was 6, owned him...

    old horse losing appetite (for hay?)

    I have a 28 year old Morgan who has been in phenomenal shape. Other than a bit of "old-man-itis" in some distal limbs, he has fantastic teeth (still has them all) and fantastic hooves. He's always...

    Yep. I've seen one of my Morgans get his tongue stuck twice, so who knows how many times he's actually done it. He's always very mouthy and one of his favorite things to lick is metal.

    Anyhoo, the...

    I think you can get an idea of pricing for those sorts of things, at least a ballpark within a few thousand. For example, I'd have a few fencing options (e.g. Ramm or no-climb or whatever) and price...

    Do you expect different prices (from same trainer) for 30-days' worth of training depending on what is being done with the horse?

    I'm planning to send my horse for training for several months and...

    If it's the same sale they had last year, the "coupons" are literally on the bags. And, if you get a particularly unobservant TSC employee checking you out, you can get buy 1, get 4 free. :)
