    Since all my guys are in their 20s (and expensive to keep) they will be put down if something should happen to me. No way would I want them ending up in the wrong hands.

    I treated my Cushings mare for 17 years. It really wasn't a big deal and she lived to the ripe old age of 33. She also had arthritis and other issues, but lived a long, happy comfortable life.

    I don't care for his "methods" at all. I wouldn't spend a dime to buy any of his DVDs, etc. A total hack.

    Many, many years ago, I worked for the advertising agency that did all of Morton's ads. That meant I got to see a lot of their (higher end) horse barns in person. OMG, were they lovely barns! Very...

    It really doesn't hurt to try different disciplines, particularly if you don't yet own a horse. Take lessons at lots of different barns until you find one that suits you. Maybe you will find a...

    A little bit of molasses will work, too.

    I've also used applesauce, apple juice, peppermints to disguise the flavor.

    But if they are the same drug, just a different name, why in the hell are the Equioxx tablets still more expensive? Just because they have a pretty picture of a horse on the box?

    I have to agree with this. When my old mare started having trouble with sores, I switched her to straw and never had another problem.

    Take whatever time Google Maps or Mapquest give you, and double it. That will be a more realistic estimate of the commute time.
