    You could also try MSM. I'm a huge fan of it for lots of things. It helps with reducing inflammation. Generally, sore muscles have inflammation restricting them. Especially with him being 21,...

    All our mares and foals go out with the "herd" of other mares and foals, youngsters (both geldings and fillies), plus all the adults (geldings, open and bred mares, never bred mares), and we've never...

    If your horse is only going to be in there for 2-3 months, I'd go even simpler.

    I don't have any particular recommendations, but you could start with combing The Equiery and The Equine Marketer, and Horse of the Delaware Valley. Just google them, and you'll easily find their...

    I built a wooden cover, with a big enough opening to put their heads in, to go over my big tank. If you are at all handy, you could build one to fit any size tank. I'm fanatical about clean water...

    I have electrobraid, and would never have anything else. Personally, I'd never use high tensile, coated or not, near any horses. Cows, maybe, but never my horses.

    We have 3 strands of electrobraid on t-posts currently. I plan to eventually switch to electrobraid on wood posts, preferably 4-5 strands along the (super quiet, very rural) road to keep out the...

    Yeah, I don't know that I'd call that a "study", either. Results of a questionnaire, yes. LOL

    I will say, I have two personal chestnut mares. They are both the most courageous horses I own--bold...

    I've always free fed my dogs and only one of the last 7 was even slightly overweight. Maybe the difference is they've always been big, active dogs. Two labs (one of which was the overweight one),...

    For the shady side, I'd recommend hostas, ferns, and astilbe. For the sunny side, you can't go wrong with daylilies, and iris IMO.
