I used to be a huge fan of Buckeye, but their formulas changed when they sold. I would go with TC first.
In the mean time, get a dosing syringe and fill with applesauce, corn syrup or molasses and squirt that in her mouth daily.
I'd also wonder if his frog is no longer in contact with the ground and not allowing it to be used as the "pump" that it is meant to be to move fluid. Can you post pics?
Smart Pak has natural Vit E 2500IU per serving, in pellets
Eyes are the one thing that to me is always an emergency. Lots of damage can be done without major symptoms showing. I'm actually surprised your vet would say "wait and watch".
Hmm, I've never held a stall, or as a boarder, expected one to be held without without a security deposit.
As a manager, I would not take a stall off the market without one being paid and a signed...
Are you sure he's getting adequate levels of vitamin E? Is he on pasture at all?
Try an older Kieffer, (likely MW tree). They have a cutback pommel to accommodate the sharkfin wither, and flatter panels to fit a straighter back. I use mine on everything from a 15.1h QH to a 16h...
Well, I was going to use them the next time I needed to order natural Vit E, since they have the higher dosage than Elevate. Anyone know of any other sources of non-synthetic Vit E at more than...
Thank you for your "opinion"...however, there was always hay left over in the morning, so no, she wasn't eating it all, and she was also on 11 acres of pasture with only 7 other horses for 12hrs a...
I would be adding Vitamin E, also. D-alpha, not DL-alpha. Elevate and Smartpak are the only ones I've found.
I have a minor "barn bully"; she likes to cut me off in the arena, intentionally rides very close when passing when it's obvious the horse I am on is intimidated, and drags her dressage whip along...
I had excellent results feeding my hard-keeper TB mare Triple Crown Senior. Please follow the guidelines on the back of the bag. 1 pound of any true feed (as opposed to a supplement) is not enough...
Regarding Brian's post, I seem to recall reading 20% fat as the ceiling. I can't recall where I read that but it's sticking in my head...
Has anyone brought up EMND or some variant of that?
When my mare was alive, I used to keep a pack of baby wipes in the groom box and wipe down her udder when I groomed. She would get cruddy pretty quickly and baby wipes took care of it.
Yes, day old bread/pastries are an old school thing for treats. We didn't always have neat little horse nuggets sold to us at $15.00 a jar. FWIU, it's also popular in Europe.
Yes, look for an older, used Stubben, Passier, or Kieffer. First, they are much easier on the budget, sellable if you decide you want something different and they tend to fit a variety of horses...
I'd put up the electric fence signs AND signs that say "Caution Horses BITE". Do Not Feed signs are too enticing and give a thrill when someone gets away with doing it.
You have a PM
I think this combination looks fantastic! It minimizes the rider and draws attention to the horse. Well done!
What is your criteria? Budget? Travel time? Amenities? Lessons or full training? There are a lot of varieties in the area.
I keep going back to Triple Crown
My mare will rub if she's the least bit dirty under the tail and around her sensitive areas. I keep baby wipes in my brush box and wipe down daily.
