    Have your vet run a DM (dermatophyte) test just to see if it's a ringworm-like fungus.

    I use a contoured girth made by Thorowgood - the "Airoform" and it seems to work very well for me. I've been using it for just over a year. It cleans up well and keeps my saddle in place. I know...

    We'd never encountered it before. We saw a small patch in the pasture last year and thought "what a weird weed!" and this year, well, it's trying to take over the place it seems!

    I forgot to make note the other day, that the fat is only given on days we work as well.

  15. ulcers - I forgot

    As far as ulcers go, I have given it some thought. In talking with my trainer and her vet (as well as 2 of the vets I work for, who are horsey) we think he's at low risk: he's just turned 11, and...

    For those of you who tried Tri-Hist and stopped feeding it because the horse boycotted it, do you supplement anything now to help with the sensitivity to fly bites? My trainer swears by BugCheck,...

    I took in a cat from a co-worker who said he was "just too much to be an indoor cat!" After a few days in the house adjusting to the move, I understood what she meant - he gets into everything and...

    Bringing along what I hope will be my distance horse, I want to ensure that he'll eat on the trail to take care of himself as we add on the miles. I try to stop at least once an hour while riding...
