    My young horse is a late bloomer (tall and gangly, very immature) and when I sent him to the trainer last spring he dropped weight with the extra work. Since he was already getting a large amount of...

    Another vote for the Kirkland brand if you're a Costco member. A 50 lb bag is just under $30 and it's rated fairly high on dog food advisor.

    Mine started hay dunking three years ago, right around the time he was diagnosed as a headshaker. He's 11 now and a homebred, so I know he never did it before then. It comes and goes randomly and I...

    When I broke my leg two years ago and was on crutches for four months, I paid someone $25 per day for four horses for AM chores. She fed grain, threw hay outside, turned out, cleaned stalls, fed the...

    I've said "he's a 2004", leaving off the "model" part. Sometimes I'll say their actual age, it just depends on what comes out of my mouth at that particular time. And I adore all of my boys,...

    Revive Coat Conditioner - it's a cattle product, so not quite a "household" item, but I love it and it smells great (coconut oil). I also buy bags of lifesaver mints at Costco - a favorite for all...

    I normally use navy on my black horse (so much easier to see when it's time to take them out!) and I also keep hunter green and a deep purple on hand. I've used the purple on my chestnut, haven't...
