    Thanks Highflyer and drawstraws - it's not something I wanted to ever have to deal with, but just like some metabolic horses I've owned in the past, they don't give me much choice.

    Thanks for...

    Thanks to all for the advice. :yes:

    Candysgirl - I've never heard of Revolution, but I will ask my vet about it as I have an appt. today. It's also interesting that they can be ordered for less...

    Thanks for the replies. You just confirmed what I was already suspicious about. I didn't know you could buy Frontline and Advantage from PetSmart these days. There is one that is semi-close to me...
  9. Do you think flea products are safe purchases on Ebay?

    I have three cats, a Chihuahua and a Pit Bull mix. We are battling fleas this year (again) and I noticed you can do bulk purchases of things like Advantix and Comfortis on Ebay for better prices...

    If you are looking for a solution while he is in a stall, we had a horse that was a cribber and despite collars, which did stop him from cribbing, but not trying to crib, he would tear up a water...

    I thought I would report back that I went out and observed his behavior after dark last night and the head shaking and all other symptoms were completely gone. :( I was almost hoping they would...

    Thanks FineAlready and Laurierace - I'm not ruling the other types out, just felt that sunlight might be the culprit for him since his stall is shaded, but the hallway he walks out into has bright...

    The hay your horse eats has Acid Detergent Fiber in it as well. If you ever have a hay analysis done, it will most likely give you the ADF percentage in that analysis. It is the portion of hay (or...
  15. Does This Sound Like a Horse Developing Photic Head Shaking Syndrome?

    I have a 9 year old pinto Saddlebred gelding who was a product of our breeding program (we are no longer breeding horses due to the economy). He is a very easy going gelding, used for western trail...

    When I used to have show horses, I often wanted to "know" exactly what effect certain elements of showing had on my horses. I once took ginger salve, the exact thing used on horses, and put a dab on...

    Sorry to offend your fragile psyche. I thought it was a disturbing photo, but it's certainly not the first on COTH to be disturbing by any means. I'll add a blurb beside it stating it's graphic if...

    That is so funny it is ridiculous. They don't want them to be horses; they want them to be machines. Discouraging a horse/pony from urinating is just, it's just....well, it's idiotic. :no:
