TTouch is SUPER effective for this type of condition. Lots of books and videos here: www.touch.com
If you use a wand (stiff dressage whip) to stroke his body all over--long strokes down his back,...
Where is this horse located?
Saddles either fit or they don't. Those are well made saddles that are a dream to ride in. Get one that fits your horse!
For my 31 year old nearly toothless wonder, I put his in a feed tub so he has something to do when the others are eating hay that he can't chew.
I might try making one of these!
Lots of bending and lateral work. Find a book or video that clearly explains the french method of combing the reins. He needs to learn to stretch into contact rather than avoid it.
I often take...
You pay a booking fee.
Then the stud fee when the foal stands and nurses.
You people are weird.
You can acupuncture for appetite.
Have you checked for lyme?
You need to try different types to see what works for you and your horse. Everyone is different. Different horses like/respond to different things.
I have a Theralaser 2000. I use it on horses and myself. The horses at least seem to notice it when you use it on them. I know it helps me when I use it on my neck and wrist.

Thanks all! These would be products I create myself.
I hadn't thought of Etsy.
I am only in the "wondering if this is possible" stage. Like I don't even know what goes into this. There would be several products and the post office is 10 minutes away.
That is basically where...
I vote for Stephen Colbert's help!
I am thinking of creating an online store associated with my website to sell training related items and other things. I have not done anything like this before. I have sold things on Ebay though.
TTouch has many books and videos that are super helpful for horses with little training: www.touch.com
Also Carolyn Resnick's method is made for especially for feral horses (others too.)...
I am wondering about one of these if the coyote comes within range. Maybe you could hit them with a ball.
Of course if you miss they might learn to play fetch. LOL!
Try a hackamore of some kind. That is what I do.
When I hear them close to the barn at night I go out on the porch and scream at them to SHUT UP!
They are still around though.

The allergy shots really helped!
I am trying to find a solution to my newest horse's hay eating habits. I will soon change turn-out around so he and the others are in at night. He came from a place where he had tons of hay. If he is...
