    Ace only for a sedative. You can use bute for the pain but check with your vet. My mare was on Reserpine for a short time when she was on stall rest and while turned out in a very small area - just...

    Get him off the grass...NOW. Check the pulse in the feet and for heat (looks like you are checking for heat already). I'd be icing the feet and remove all grain. I wouldn't feed any grain to any...

    Saved my mares life after a bout with laminitis. Worth every penny. Make sure they fit correctly and use their measuring guide. I always used generic Gold Bond powder in them and I did take them off...

    Same here - completely torn ACL and a completely shredded meniscus (happened 10 years ago). MDC Ultimates made riding so much better - literally pain free with them!

    The melanomas greys are prone to is NOT the same as skin cancer in humans. Totally different and has nothing to do with sun exposure.

    I use Flys Off - same exact thing as SWAT though marketed for dogs and it's signifcantly cheaper (1 oz smaller tub but still much cheaper ). I do apply it daily along the belly and sheath/udder...

    I will NOT use them when the big bugs are out - deer flies, horseflies...B-52 bombers, etc. after having my old stoic TB almost kill himself trying to get rid of one that trapped under his sheet. I...

    My father did when he retired - moved and built a house on the gorgeous lake he grew up on. It was about three hours away from all of us (which includes 8 grandkids). We have a bunch of relatives...

    Same here. I wouldn't insure a 19 yr old especially with a $4K bill just for the policy. Better off banking the money and using it as an emergency fund. I've seen plenty of older horses go through...

    Exactly why my old TB wore bell boots on his hind feet - he'd interfere and cut himself constantly. I pulled his shoes when he retired and became a pasture pet but kept him in the bell boots. It...

    I lost my old TB at the age of 31 due most likely to EPM. He was perfectly fine one morning and by the time I got to the barn that night he was a neurological nightmare. I took him to the equine...

    This drives me crazy. I've literally sticked hundreds of TB's at the track over the years and very rarely do I measure one at 17 hands - very rarely (I'd say less than 15 out of hundreds). I laugh...

    From what I've seen from covering the track for years (a low-end track), the trainers with money will geld early while the trainers who don't "have a pot to piss in" as the saying goes will tend not...

    This exactly. My current horse and all the others I've owned over 35+ years are never allowed to step an inch out of line. I don't do anything special. I set boundaries from day one and they learn...

    Regular hoses aren't safe to drink water out of - sure everyone does it (I haven't in years when I realized what could be growing inside the hose) but it's not recommended. When you buy a hose you...

    7 yrs next month. I only replaced the battery once - only because my keys got soaked in a rainstorm. Truck is a 2008 Ram 1500. :)

    Just curious as to why people don't first move their horse off the property - make up a story that you are going schooling somewhere or have an in-house vet appointment - just load and go. Then give...

    In my state (NH) trailers are required to be inspected just like your vehicle is. I take mine in yearly to a place that only deals with trailers (all kinds) and let them check everything thoroughly....

    Gold Toe - I have a bunch that are 10+ years old and NO holes. Maybe a little worn in the part that hits the back of the shoe but it's really nothing and I'd expect that eventually. They could use a...

    ^ Exactly this. Just buy the chlorhexidine scrub and that's it. I get mine from my vet for dirt cheap.
