    Can he get his head over a wall, and bang the wall with his front legs when he paws? Or over the top of a stall door? He may also be damaging them when he goes down.

    You're smart to stay ahead of...

    My trainer suggested spraying the area with witch hazel. Said it helps toughen the skin. We also switched to a mohair girth, so I don't know which worked. But between the two things, she hasn't had a...

    They don't get to choose. This mind-set, "if they want to keep using it" puts them in control. Be very clear about this. "Trial period is over. It *is* a nice saddle. Which I purchased for my...

    You started a related thread on June 2. Rather than starting a new thread, could you just update the previous one with any new info?

    NBN, after a few years of dealing with this, my mare and I have developed a cycle. I start one packet of the Abler omeprazole in early November when the weather starts to get iffy, and then...

    I also have the nets from Shires. Have a few in rotation, but I haven't purchased any for more than a year. Definitely securing the bottom back to the top snap causes them to rip sooner.

    There are two elements to helmet fit, size and shape.

    If it's just too small, get a larger one.

    If the helmet is tight at the forehead but has a gap over your ears, the helmet is rounder than...

    There is no question that terrier's have a reputation of being protective and on a short fuse -- especially when on lead. Ours has become unpredictable in that she can meet 4...
