    I had good luck using Wonderdust a few years back. Had a wound high up on the inside of my mare's hind leg that kept forming proud flesh. The vet cut it back a couple of times, and we were using a...

    I have one bay, one chestnut, and I'm sort of embarrassed to admit that I'm not entirely sure what to call the pony's color. He's kind of a pale chestnut or reddish palomino roan color. His coggins...

    That was my first thought as well. I'm sure there are other possibilities, but since it's so common it seems like it would be worthwhile to check.

    I also had a horse with HYPP that drank and...

    I suspect that the CotH crowd would be a little more sympathetic if the OP took responsibility and was realistic about what happened. Saying something like "Selling Horsie was the right financial...

    I completely respect that.

    However, if I was somehow able to see the future with precision, I would only ever euthanize happy comfortable horses. If I could keep them from ever having to suffer...

    Thankfully since it also gets used for bird feed and such, it's usually not too hard to find smaller bags. Or you might even have a friend who would split some with you.

    I'm aware that it...

    Awww, I can sympathize.

    My ram Lando is a pretty special guy, too. Extremely polite, friendly without being rude, and even minds his manners during breeding season. I'm keeping a bunch of his...

    Thanks! I also love seeing pictures of people's horses, and I'm glad that other people have shared stories and photos about their "boring" horses here as well.

    Thank you too wcporter!

    Thanks! I don't know if hacking around the farm with my fat dumpling butt aboard counts as much of a story, but it is still going very well. :)

    My pony with Cushing's really likes black oil sunflower seeds: NSC 5.6%. 15-16% protein, 40% fat.

    A different vitamin/mineral might be more palatable as well.

    With sheep, we actually mix a...

    FWIW, I love my Tipperary helmet. I don't find it hot at all, but I've consistently worn a helmet of some kind when riding for the last 20+ years so I'm pretty used to having one on.

    Mine get done as often as 6 weeks in the summer, and go as long as 12 in the winter when their hoof growth slows to a crawl. Thankfully there's a large boarding barn nearby that the farrier comes to...

    I think that does have a lot to do with it. The expectation now is that all of your children will make it to adulthood, and we do everything we can to ensure that will happen.

    LOL, that happened to me once as well. And a bunch of the 4-H kids from the group I volunteered with were watching and saw it happen. On the bright side, it was useful to bring it up again whenever...

    Current pony (~500 lbs) is doing well on the 1/2 tablet dose. He came to me being maintained on that dosage, and I haven't had him retested...

    Thanks Sheilah!
