    I wouldn't feed it to a horse that can eat and digest hay, but following my gelding's molar extraction, the vet said no hay or grass for 30 days. So he got a soaked, extruded hay pellet...

    My mare's a huge sweater, even without a strenuous ride, and I can't imagine how itchy and uncomfortable she would be without a quick rinse after each ride, drought or not. My gelding can go without...

    All the horses at my barn were fine :) BO confirmed, however, that illegal fireworks were going off all over the place. My horses grew up in the area so I'm sure it's something they've heard every...

    My horses apparently survived, because I haven't had a text or call from the barn to indicate otherwise, but the illegal fireworks here were ridiculous last night.

    I'm in California and in the...

    Try asking on "Horsey friends" on FB (lots of Norcal members) or Bay Area Equestrian Network.

    My gelding had an upper molar extracted. It was cracked and infected, and the vet didn't give me the impression that the extraction was optional. Luckily, he was able to extract it under standing...

    Try the cow mastitis medication, Today or Tomorrow (I can't remember which one, but you can do a search here). It works very quickly to clear up thrush, is easy to apply, and I think it would stay...

    I thought I had run across one of the GG studies that said something like 90% of the horses' ulcers healed with a full tube and 73% or so healed with a half tube. Those numbers are off the top of my...
  9. Half Dose of GG for Treating Ulcers? Can someone point me to the studies?

    I'm doing a week (maybe 2) of GG on my mare to try to determine if she has ulcers. I may end up scoping her, I'm not sure yet.

    I keep seeing references here to a study or studies that showed a...

    I'm in California and it gets HOT in the summer, but it's a dry heat :)

    I decided my gelding wasn't drinking enough water one summer (I was kind of paranoid after an impaction colic) and I decided...

    I use Cheval for my horse owner's liability insurance. My homeowner's insurance used to cover them, and then stopped that coverage (without notifying anyone, I found out by accident, although I cant...

    My barn feeds my gelding a fig newton with his Prascend by hand every day when they feed "lunch" (a ration balancer with a small amount of soaked alfalfa pellets). If he was alone, it could just get...

    I used to board next door to a place that had a manure pile catch on fire. It was a huge pile, and located quite close to the barn. The fire department was there for hours spraying it, and the...

    Feeding the Prascend in a Fig Newton or other cookie sounds a lot easier to me than grinding the pill up and syringing it in. The Nicker Bait cookies with the soft center (the large ones) will even...

    I also use the tablet and feed it inside a Fig Newton. You could even break the Fig Newton in half to reduce the sugar.

    They make sugar-free Fig Newtons, but they might contain some weird...

    I actually did not make any changes to his diet, turnout, etc., because he only has Cushing's, he is not insulin resistant. I've actually had to up his feed at times, including his alfalfa intake,...

    ^ Well, my gelding got laminitis in the fall of 2013 and tested normal. The following fall he tested high and we put him on the Prascend. In the interim, while he did not develop laminitis again,...

    It depends on the horse :) My gelding with Cushing's does fine with some alfalfa in his diet and it helps him keep weight on.

    Has he been tested for Cushing's? Especially since he's a little underweight?

    Fig newtons work for small pills. I've also used the NickerBait pill camo, which comes in two sizes. The mini ones are great for Prascend or Previcox tablets.

    I used the "soft" pads to begin with, but then switched to the medium density as I found they held up better.E

    ETA: Is she on pergolide/Prascend for the Cushing's?
