    I volunteer for a Feral Cat organization and kittens (prior to adoption) are spayed and neutered much earlier than the 6 month rule. I'd neuter him now.

    Cabela's

    Had the low pair of MH winter boots and hated them. My feet froze. I asked my Vet what she wears in the winter. (Who better than to ask?)

    She told me not to go below a certain gram of...

    I never do a Bran Mash. To me, it is the same as switching feed abruptly, which is obviously not good.

    Adding water to feed? It can't hurt.

    I used to like the Kensington brand. Nice strong velcro that really kept it in place.

    Due to my mare's Uveitis, I had to change masks that prevented more UV Rays from coming through the mask.

    She left me a voice mail this morning as I wanted to confirm the amounts. Flash44, she said exactly the same thing you just said. Keep her on the 4 cups twice a day for two weeks, and if no change,...

    I've always done it the same way. If they are getting thin and there isn't a medical issue behind it, up the feed and vice versa.



    When my Vet was out, we spoke in length about my mare's...
  8. Just an update

    Spoke with my Vet and the tests for Lyme, Cushing's, and a general Chem/CBC panel were all pretty normal, except, my mare is a bit Anemic.

    I had forgotten that she was tested for I.R. back...

    I use "Camp Dry" on all my blankets and sheets. You can find it the cheapest at Walmart. I wash them first and hang dry.

    Lay out flat in the garage (with doors open) and spray away,...

    I feel your pain.... :no: I keep a fly sheet on my mare from spring until it is time for a light sheet. She needs the fly sheet anyway, as the bugs drive her crazy.

    After grooming I...

    I called my Vet and she is coming out next Tuesday.

    Again, this was a pony who stayed plump on a handful of grain. So, we'll see....

    Thanks for all the ideas and different grain suggestions.

    I mentioned a Solar Tank to the OP, as I had bought a 25 gallon tank last winter.

    It's probably the easiest solution if she goes to the barn a few days a week. Then she can top it off and not...

    Don't forget, she said her horse likes to dunk his hay, which is a good thing.

    So it doesn't matter how many hours other horses can go without water for.

    Hi C/C, Thanks for the information. No new place yet.. :( I'll send you message...



    Do you soak the pelleted hay or feed it as is? No problems with "Choke" ?

    Years ago when horse searching, I looked at a horse in the North East. It was a private backyard barn, maybe 10 horses? All belonged to the property owner.

    All horses stayed in their stalls at...

    Thanks. I didn't realize that Magnesium could cause the weight to come off. She has been on SmartPak IR Control for approx. 2 years??? Although I discontinued it just very recently, as the...

    Agree. I've had barn owners who were rather blaise regarding water. Not until someone has to deal with impaction colic due to lack of water, do they realize that something as simple as water could...

    I bought the 25 gallon tank for my mare last year. Kind of costly, but plan to use it for years to come. Lack of available water is non-negotiable for...

    Wanted to add: The picture in my signature link is several years old. Does she appear to be too heavy in the pic? Thank you.

    Thank you everyone for the information.

    Basically, here is the problem. I posted a similar question about a month ago.

    I have a 15 yr old, 13.1 hand stocky POA mare that I use for Trail...

    Thank you for supplying the links. Definitely will read.
  22. Update: Low Starch, Low Carbs, sugar , etc. Grain Question.

    Back in the olden days we fed Sweet Feed. Period.

    Now it seems so confusing with the large variety of grains for this and that.

    Have a question that should be obvious to me, but want to double...

    Another vote for "Dawn". I use it on my mare for after ride baths too.

    Glad to hear he is doing better. :) Yep, mask on 24/7 IMO.
