Yes. Has been for some time.
And WHY?! Why would an equestrian smack a horse (standing in his stall) in the face?
How was he tested? I assume a blood test? What made you test for Vitamin E? Or did you test for a variety of things and this was the only thing he came up needing? Was the test very expensive?
When you say "grain," what exactly do you mean?
Yes, the person I pay for nutrition advice for my horse says to add 400 iu of Vitamin E per 500 lbs of horse if they are on a hay-only diet. Oh,...
I just want to say -- I'm so glad my horse doesn't know you exist. He only DREAMS of eating 40+ lbs of food a day!
I used to feed it. It's pretty popular in my area, and my farrier recommended it.
I think it's a fine feed, but not magic. It's just feed. The guy who formulates it clearly thinks it is magic. ...
I'm pretty sure that product is the same as the Ontario Dehydrated Timothy Cubes that you can get from Triple Crown. I'm not sure where I read that . . .
They do fluff up nicely.
Weird. It's nothing like my treeless. But my treeless is nothing like an English or western saddle either.
OP, please come back and tell us what's going on!
I'm guessing the problem is that the mom doesn't have the money to return.
I've always wanted one of those. :)
We've discussed this here before. I can't imagine wanting one.
ETA: I'd love to see a video of what happens when the horse freaks out.
I'll mention three products.
Dr. Kellon recommends the first two:
Ontario Timothy Balanced Cubes. These are low in starch and sugar and mineral balanced to Dr. Kellon's specifications for IR...
I think Lysine is quite abundant in alfalfa. More probably won't make the difference you're looking for.
What's the point of saying this? You know very well you changed your horse's description on us.
Look, I totally get what you want. I want it too. I'll never be satisfied until my horse loves...
I'm not sure about Canada, but the general thinking is that October is a very dangerous month for overweight horses. Sunny days and cold nights cause the grass to be higher in sugar, and horses have...
It is so unfair to bring up Parelli in this discussion. Nothing that was going on in this video had anything remotely to do with Parelli.
The little bit of pissy-ness I saw would have been so...
My horse is a lot like yours. He doesn't get lunging AT ALL, but I get an entirely different attitude when I long-line him in a circle. That is, two lunge lines and a surcingle, me in the center of...
kbrethauer, I wondered if you've had any luck rigging up your system?
I would like to use something like a Pessoa system to develop my horse's hind quarters, but a Pessoa system would put his nose...
Oh good heavens. Not him again. Can I not go anywhere without being reminded of him?!
My horse is very food aggressive. It doesn't just affect feed time, it affects him all the time because he's constantly agitated in the presence of edible greenery.
In all honesty I don't think...
The one I had in the 70s was no doubt made in the 60s. I'm sure it was homemade. It had a manger, nothing between in and out but a plywood back door, no escape door, no tack storage despite the...
I'm not at my laptop, so I can't give you the link, but I got mine from a an online company called something like Slypner Gear.
Only my dog would kiss me after I've been trail riding!
