    ARGH!!

    Eye was starting to look good again. Vet came out, started to debride it, everything that had healed was loose and not adhering. :( So she had to scrape all the loose cells away again and I am sure...

    This has been true for me! I have gotten so many nutcases off the web. Lots of dealers trying to pretend they were offering permanent homes. I've had a few that have called and hung up on me when I...

    Larger Western Bits?

    Is there anywhere that sells wider western bits? All I can find are 5" and under. Thanks!

    What is the difference between a Horseyshades and a normal fly mask (besides blocking more UV?) I was thinking of ordering one but my horse is hard on them and the price seems kind of high.

    I'm glad you posted this! My TB takes a WB size in a regular fly mask. It is good to know I will probably have to have one made if I buy a Guardian mask.

    IIRC, the DeNemethy Method has a bunch of stuff in the back for things like trot poles, gymnastics and such. It is an old book but you could probably find a used copy.

    Yes, I have seen good results with an osteopath too. Would definitely call her back again. It is a lot like a chiro/massage combined. She really takes her time and goes over the horse thoroughly.
