    I have a '99 Merhow, aluminum over steel, and I am very happy with it.

    I don't like aluminum flooring in the horse area - it can be fine if you buy new and take good care of it, but every used...

    Try 5 cc of cattle injectable vitamin A, top dressed on her feed once a week for 2-3 weeks. It's easy. Cheap. Can't hurt (at that dosage, for that time period).

    Vitamin A supplementation has cleared up all the skin ickies (scratches, rain rot) that I've dealt with on numerous foster horses. I read about it on a message board, didn't really buy in, but also...

    I love my treeless saddles. My horses are happy and comfortable, and I much prefer the close contact. It's funny to hear people dismiss treeless, based on the $99 ebay special or something they...

    Yes, they work. My mare is down at least 150 lbs, since being muzzled/dry lotted with hay. She is another pig, and yes - she's often eating when the others aren't, muzzle or not. I read a recent...

    Mine go through salt blocks pretty fast. I have one in the pasture and one in the dry lot. I'll have to check their ration balancer - I don't even know if it has salt. Interesting information!

    We have been really lucky that the Best Friend's muzzle hasn't been rubbing (so far). That is a good idea. I have an old one as a spare, but she's eaten the hole out a bit on it.

    So - do you...

    Thanks, all. I'm going to try leaving her out every 2-3 nights, and see how her weight does. She is definitely happier, and it's easier on us.

    How many leave horses out, muzzled, most of the time?

    My mare had laminitis last summer. She was fat, muzzled not enough, on Remission, worse foot was 6 degrees of rotation.

    She was in a dry...

    I am exhibit 2. I often sit and let my horses graze nearby - either on or off lead. I agree that a horse in open space - a good one, anyway - will spook away, not into, a person if possible. Mine...
