    Probably best for this horse if you send him to someone with an established rep for dealing with behavioral issues like this. Dustin Craig does have a good reputation in this area and there are any...

    I totally understand and you have no reason to take care of more than you can, but if you see those posts, maybe someone who is able to help in a legitimate situation will see it and that one horse...

    I get all those posts in my FB feed and ignored them, was somewhat annoyed by them, felt sort of guilty about them, figured I should just take good care of my own horses. But then one day up popped...

    My hunt horse is a big Cleveland Bay cross, very well behaved but a big, heavy horse that requires a fair amount of balancing out there. After shoulder surgery this summer I was worried I would not...

    Had this surgery in July. You will need serious pain meds the first week. Hydrocodone won't cut it, you need something like Dilaudid. I've broken a lot of things and had three babies, there is no...

    With cellulitis that is not responding to antibiotics, the regional perfusion is the answer if there is one. Had to go that route on one of mine recently but he is only 5 and insured so the decision...

    I found the combination of a Bates close contact with the gullet system and a Mattes half pad with appropriate shims very useful for the years my young horses were changing shape all the time. No...

    I am working with my first donkey -- a spotted mini jennet -- and they are really rather fascinating! Donkeys actually seem sort of complicated. Mine's last home was lovely but there is abuse in...

    I had to put a wonderful old horse down last week. My vet uses a mix which is basically what they would get prior to surgery -- ketamine, valium. They are down and out long before the euthanasia...

    I honestly think the opposite is true. A touch of Ace to steady your horse -- and I mean less that 1cc -- will settle them enough to pay attention to where they put their feet. Much safer!! The...

    This is a very good suggestion! Don't feel guilty that it did not work out...you solved some major issues and gave him a chance to do the job he loves again. I have a number of horses, most of whom...
