    Why would you think that the 6 months of "toughening" is the reason your horse is sounder (although not entirely sound) when shod? I'd say it doesn't sound like it is working very well.

    I don't...

    I agree about looking for a clinic; although I know that they are sometimes hard to get into. But I'd really be surprised if you had to pay $600 for a cardiac ultrasound...we had one for our dog...

    I believe I read that horses will avoid eating from the roughs for as long as 3 years after they have been used as manure areas; so dragging won't really change that, nor will rotating, unless you...

    I wouldn't advise it; seems like it would put a lot of pressure on your brush hog and it would also make it really long. Might be hard to turn it.

    Yes, this....then usually followed by the BBC version of Sense and Sensibility and then Emma. :)

    My husband hates them all, so if he's away I usually watch Jane Austen. :)

    This was about the same as when I was got my TB mare - she was very thin and still had a filly by her side. I think I recall an estimate of *at least* 35,000 calories/day in order to put weight on a...

    I'd actually be surprised if the SPCA would allow two foster dogs in one dwelling. Especially if both adults are not experienced at fostering dogs.

    If I were them, I would say no - the...

    I agree; while there could be something *else* going on with this horse, it is also likely that it still needs more feed. I posted earlier on this thread that my retired TB mare eats more than the...

    I would want more information on the cost/benefit of switching feeds for only a 1.7% difference. If it's otherwise as available,...
