    I have the 3/4" Custom Saddlery brand. After all these years, they finally are starting to show some wear but not enough for me to switch out with the Passiers I got on sale....

    I have this sheet and love it but the trim is brown, not black. Do you think this is an older model? Is it the "soft, drapey" kind of material or the "stiffer, tougher" kind. (mine is the latter) ...

    Longe him if you're not able to ride him. You don't want to be in the position I was 7 months ago, and mine only had access to orchard hay, no pasture. (could not exercise mine, was injured) ...

    I have the same fly sheet and we get some crazy Santa Ana winds, I've never used the tail cord because I thought it looked like a safety issue. I've never had the sheet blown over his back/head and...

    I would definitely have the vet take current x-rays. The shoes can stay on, and that in fact, will help the farrier because the vet can look at placement/breakover, etc. Tranquilizer probably isn't...

    I have the sheet, the saddle pad and the polos. I cannot say that any of them really do anything special, wish they did, but no.

    I, too, use the Santa Cruz Vitamin E. However, it *does* contain a small amount of sugar. I have a metabolic case too and one of my vets was very concerned so I emailed the company. The amount is...

    If the mare you brought/bred did not really have IR/Cushings, then there really is no problem here. Your 1st post said she did, but now you're backing off on it. ?? If she really didn't have the...

    For your horse's sake, I'm glad 2 of the 3 are doing well. Mine was too, was a state champion, ranked nationally, won a ton of awards. He was FABULOUS, until he wasn't. I've spent thousands trying to...

    BRILLIANT!!! So you took a mare with a known problem and you bred her 3 times, that's just fantastic. As the owner of a young gelding that has been diagnosed IR/Cushings, I have to thank you just...

    Ditto this, other than I don't know that the hay needs to be "mature, stemmy", but definitely low NSC.



    Save your $$, don't bother with the Smart Metabolean. I had one that was diagnosed via...

    Unfortunately, you may have to mix and match a bit. Britta at justbridles helped me out with a lovely snaffle bridle for one of mine a few years ago, but I'm not sure it she's still in business. I...

    Tullymars has some feeders made out of plastic water barrels (I think that's what they are) that would be perfect. PM her if she doesn't see this....

    As mentioned, feed store $35.00 for 50 lbs, whole flax. Yes, you can buy Triple Crown Omega Max, which is ground, stabilized flax but it is $35.00 for a 25lb bag in my area. I just can't justify...

    I didn't think it easily spoiled unless ground. ??? I've never had a horse get the runs, maybe start off with 1/2 cup, but go right up to 1 full cup for most horses. I grind mine right before...

    I second this, they are not super cheap but not horribly expensive either. Very professional looking, but nice and stretchy (almost too much IMO). I don't like tights for riding, though, so YMMV.

    Why would she suggest a high FAT diet for a horse with a possible IR problem? Did she mean PSSM? I concur with the others, get the blood tests done so you know exactly what you're dealing with...
