    My horse went in Polyflex shoes for about 6 months. Here's their website: http://polyflexhorseshoes.com/. He wore the Morrison Open Rollers.

    My gelding can be barn sour and bratty when hacking out from home but is a gentleman when hauled out. I really do think it's all about whether he knows he's going "home" or not. As others have said,...

    Tape worms look amazingly like little strawberry seeds. Ask me how I know. :(

    The blood is something else entirely. I would hold off on any new dewormer. Will your vet do an over the phone...

    I have no solution for the stupidity of the people at your barn, unfortunately, but I did want to chime in on the question of the salt block as this is something I've recently done a great deal of...

    About ten years ago, the horse I was leasing had to be retired after a series of mystery lameness problems. I thought "hey, I could get my own horse."

    What I wanted/needed: 16h+, BTDT, bay,...

    OP, if you're interested in Vermont, PM me. There are some really phenomenal options here for summer boarding. I'm at a great barn right now that I would not hesitate to recommend, and know most of...

    It is indeed beautiful up here - leaves are starting to turn quickly! So darned cold though. I was not ready for it to be so cold, so early. I must not be as far north as you, SuckerForHorses,...

    Can I feed beet pulp intermittently?

    I'm headed down to the GMHA Fall Foliage Ride this weekend (whoo!). I have an older gelding with Cushings who hasn't been drinking as well as I'd like lately, and has never been a good drinker when...

    I wish, I wish, I wish I could do the simple wedding thing. In my case, it's become a family reunion, and close family is over 100. Add in his family, and some friends, and ugh.

    Thanks, Bluey. Thyroid problems are in the back of my mind, and I'll make sure I get numbers on them when we pull blood for another ACTH test around Thanksgiving.

    I used it when my horse had to weary EasyBoot RX boots 24/7 following surgery. When it was trapped in the boot like that, it did NOT work well at all. It ended up forming a sort of paste and just...

    I'd also be curious, Bluey, to hear what meds the Arab was put on - was it pergolide?

    So far, Tristan seems to be handling the pergolide beautifully. He's always had a monster appetite and the...

    It was nasty bitter cold, and it's only going to get worse! Sigh.

    Cushings horses & temperature regulation?

    This is long and detailed, but the takeaway question: have you found any drastic changes in winter warmth with your Cushings horse, and how have you managed the Cushings horse that suddenly seems to...

    This has been an interesting thread and I'm curious. I also have an older (19yo) horse who needs more conditioning. He has zero TB in him, as far as I know.

    I ran through things with my vet yesterday, and unfortunately not great news. She pulled blood to do a Cushings test. I ran the alfalfa ideas by her and she was not enthused, based on the way he...

    Elastikon absolutely - it's the only thing that will stay on a heel. You can do another loop of vet wrap or duct tape over the Elastikon to project it.

    He will eat ANYTHING, including at least one bite of whatever I'm eating around the barn. The only thing he spat back out at me was pizza. It's amazing. If there's any hay or grain left in his stall...

    Talk to me about alfalfa

    True confession time: I don't know anything about feeding alfalfa. I have a basic understanding of other types of hay, but my horse has always been on a basic, local grass hay.

    Until this year,...

    It is correct, but I scribed for a dressage judge once who threw fits about it. She made me run to the TD and triple-check.
