    I actually tried on a pair last Friday. I loved the way the foot felt - like sneakers - but the soft leather just didn't seem like it would hold up. I'd totally have some as a spare....

    I believe hay that's cut when the milk is in the oats and is specifically for horses is very different from mulch-type oat hay. I knew someone who fed it and her horses were in beautiful condition.

    My old mare was 22 when she fractured her lh sesamoid. She had about one week of stall rest - that was all she'd tolerate. She was quieter turned out, so with vet's blessing, I wrapped for a couple...

    I'm glad to hear that there are horses with cushings who struggle in summer, but do better in winter. My newly-diagnosed old man has always been that way (he's also always been a difficult keeper),...

    He didn't even want to try the plain fig newtons tonight. The other horses enjoyed them, but he wasn't caving to peer pressure either ;-)

    Nutrena feed for older hard keeper?
