    I'm in GA and I have been converted. I have the Dover brand and a couple Columbia and Mountain Hardware shirts. I think they help with sun protection, but I'm most impressed with with their light...

    My hunt requires that horses of newbies be known hunt horses or approved (vouched for) by a respected member or staff. I took my horse on hound exercises before we went out on a 'real' hunt. It was a...

    Thanks for the good dialog.

    I know that the setup where my guys are works very well (for a number of reasons) and I know I wouldn't always feel comfortable having horses take themselves to the...

    This is pretty much what they do at the barn where I board for the large groups. It may seem like a 'bad' thing, but the horses know how it works and new ones pick up the system very quickly.

    I...

    ako, how did your gal look? I think my boy looks better than he ever has.

    One of the things that is most confusing is that this horse is behaving very well under saddle. That's what makes me think it's not bone (rib, spine, sternum) related and more likely some sort of gut...

    NancyM, there are similarities... Thanks for sharing. I'll look harder at his feed and hay.

    For those of you who have experienced a "rib out", wouldn't that be something that showed up under saddle as well? The fact that he's being so good when I'm on is a bit perplexing to me.

    Thanks Drsgqn. I'm leaning toward getting him scoped and have a call in to my vet to talk about next steps.

    So, it seems you guys need a bit more information.

    I have owned this horse for almost 8 years. He's an all-round awesome horse! He would have been a perfect children's horse, but instead he'll be...
  15. Could it be something other than ulcers?

    My best boy is not himself.
    He looks good, - is in good weight and his coat looks good. He has an excellent appetite for grass, hay, grain, and treats. He seems content under saddle and he's not...

    We did an enucleation on an older appy mare some years ago. Like you, I considered a prosthetic at almost the last minute.
    My vet advised that it wasn't necessary and could be problematic (any time...

    It's all about which registries the sire and dam are approved for. As has been noted in previous posts, it's common for horses to be approved in multiple registries.

    Here's a fun example: I have a...

    If I recall correctly, John Lyons said to expect a bit of push back after some cooperation. I know my mare blew up after a few near-loading attempts. I stayed calm, returned to where she was...

    Thanks for all the input everyone!

    A little background:
    We are in GA. Most of our time hunting is spent on trails, in fields, and beside roads. I like studs when footing is sloppy because my...

    Thanks BigMick & CindyCRNA. I want to put them in before we leave. I don't think it'll happen if I wait til we get to the fixture :-)

    When do you put studs in?

    My horse and I are fairly new to hunting and with all the rain we've been having, it looks like Saturday will be our first opportunity to use screw-in studs away from home. If this were a show,...

    The main thing I took away from the John Lyons book was that the horse needed to be taught to load - so that it would do it every time I asked - not forced to load that one time. This involved a few...
