    Sounds like it could be allergy related, especially since he has other symptoms (runny nose, red/weepy eyes) but it could be allergies plus other things causing the headshaking. My headshaker...

    I have two horses not in work and two that are ridden and shown and I'm on a 6-week schedule year round. I could probably stretch it out a week or so in the winter and sometimes in the summer they...

    I agree, I absolutely wouldn't go any less than 7'. My 16.2 hand boys are OK in my 7-footer but next time I shop I'm going 7'6" if I can. Also, consider how long your horses are if you get a slant....

    One of my homebred geldings is registered as simply "Topless". His sire's registered name is Boogie Top and I thought it would be funny when I showed him to hear the announcer say "drawstraws riding...

    I'm a huge fan of Vetrolin Shine - I spray it on my boys after every ride. My black gelding gets quite sunbleached and while it doesn't stop his color changing it does at least keep him shiny.

    I own a headshaker and I'm 100% certain that his problem is not "high blood pressure". I'm willing to spend my money on a lot of things to try to help him but this isn't one of them. I hate it when...

    What a fantastic photo! I looked into doing it with my heeler and talked to some different people but never actually managed to get into it. He was more food motivated than toys and wasn't built at...

    *sigh* Mine is 7, going on 3 (his sire is well known for really, really, really late bloomers). I don't have an arena and live in the midwest so my horses sit all winter. When he was four, he...

    Mine's symptoms come and go so I just play it by ear as to whether or not he'll be rideable on any given day. A nose net does nothing for him, unfortunately. We're pretty low-key with our showing...

    Another happy Tribute user here! Switched from Triple Crown Senior (which I was happy with) when my headshaker decided he didn't want to eat it any longer and have been happy with the results on all...

    My house cat (best guess is that she's around 17 now, we've lost track over the years) was diagnosed as diabetic a year ago when she had a terrible bladder infection. Has been on 3 units of ProZinc...

    I've got a gelding who's an idioapathic headshaker and gabapentin is one of the drugs that is sometimes prescribed to help with that (misfiring trigeminal nerve). Works on some horses, not at all on...

    I never would have picked out an ACD for myself but when my ex and I moved in together many years ago he wanted a pup and that's what he picked out (he's from Texas). When we split up, I got the...

    Don't know if they do or how extensive their field service is but you could try Wisconsin Equine Clinic. I've always been happy with them when they've treated my lameness issues.

    Was going to take the survey because I do feed treats but I buy a giant bag of life-savers mints at Costco and give those because all four of mine like them. I only feed pre-made/packaged "horse"...

    I've got an older (1995) 3H Sundowner Horizon bumper pull with a back tack compartment. While the height (7 ft) and width is fine for my biggest beast, he's kind of squished length-wise (he's 16.2...
