    My vet suggested we start my horse on ranitidine (Zantac) tablets to see if he feels better just by having less of a sour/irritable stomach. It seems to have helped a lot, so I'll be putting him on...

    And even if you don't end up saving any money, you'll have fabulous souvenirs. I love the hat I bought (but totally didn't need) at the SRS. Lots of great memories.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions! I bet one of them will work.
  4. Convincing our horses their water won't hurt them

    We finally got the electric fence working all around the paddocks (good, yay!) but somehow, the hose that fills the water tank for four of the horses got laid across the wire and put a current into...

    My horse really likes the Supracor pad I got last summer. Super-thin and doesn't change the fit of his saddle.

    My horse has been super picky about finishing off his Lyme meds. I got him to join the clean plate (bucket) club by soaking a couple of alfalfa cubes and mixing those with his grain and meds.

    Sorry to hear about your pony. I struggled for most of last spring and summer trying to figure out what was making my horse's back sore. The saddle fitter came out twice and adjusted, massage...

    How about instrumental arrangements of music from Bizet's opera, Carmen? Lots of variety of tempo and mood, and it's very recognizable.

    Congrats for getting on! I've found that sometimes my frustration with being a nervous rider outweighs my fear, and I just get the f$@k on, no matter what. Not very often, though. Early on, I...

    I've had very good experiences buying refurbs directly from Apple.com. The refurbs come with a guarantee. Happy hunting!

    Hi, Jaleesa! I'm not in KY myself, but you could try getting involved here if you haven't already. Might be a good place to make some contacts:

    We have one elderly barn cat and she's smart enough to stay well clear of the rats. What we need is a way to protect around 30 bags of grain at a time. Metal garbage cans wouldn't hold enough. Thanks...

    Thanks for all the great ideas--we hadn't thought about a four-legged rat-killer. I love the cunning trap suggestions, too. Will pass them on to the barn owner.

    Rats!

    Our barn has suddenly acquired some VERY hungry rats who have chewed open the grain bags and helped themselves. I'd love to know how others keep their grain rat-proof. The problem is finding a...

    I came off twice this spring and those falls really did a number on my confidence, even though they were't really serious. The real damage was that I stopped trusting my horse, and he knew it. He'd...

    Why not download it and open it up when you're in range of WiFi to save on data? Then you'd know what to put on before you leave for the barn. Just a thought.

    You're reading his bio and you haven't noticed that his last name is actually Reeve?

    My trainer sets them up for us in a fan, with the close end about 4 1/2 foot lengths apart, and the wide end being about 6 1/2 foot lengths apart. That way I can choose to ask my horse to shorten or...

    You could check eBay for a good price on a Supracor. I nabbed one for less than half of retail, and my horse and I love it.

    I had a great experience with them when I traded in my Bates all-purpose for (eventually) a Karl Niedersuss. Luckily, I live about an hour away, so I was able to leave my saddle, and keep trying a...

    My horse is awful about eating when he's got any kind of meds in his grain. The secret this time around to cover up the taste of his Doxy (for Lyme) was a couple of handfuls of wet alfalfa cubes. He...

    Why not ask your current boarders what they'd be happy with? Also, I'd be concerned about how busy the ring would be. I rode at a barn with a small than regulation indoor, and it was insane on the...

    Goodness! That seems pricy! Check out Smartpak:500 x500mg pills for about $53.00, plus free shipping if others at your barn get regular shipments from them. I think my vet sells the same amount for...
