    Dang. At my boarding barn, the BM feed TC Growth to ALL the youngsters, almost all of them TBs destined for the track; my WB filly started getting ulcery as a long yearling--6-8 lbs. of cereal grain...
  2. Best men's slippers (for my elderly father), both warm and supportive?

    He has been wearing the ones I got him from L.L. Bean, but the problem is that they *only* come in "full sizes"; he wears an 8 1/2 and I had to order up and get him a 9. He has worn them out, they...

    A satisfactory outcome with a most deserving winner (not a guarantee on Survivor!), so IMO, "it's all good" :)

    Agree about Keith; they even discussed this during the "after show", and it's...
  4. And yes, Keith's spitting is disgusting, but I...

    And yes, Keith's spitting is disgusting, but I think the bottom line is that he has SURVIVED--which is stupefying, considering the odds against him.

    It will be very interesting to see what...

    Woooooot! I couldn't wait to check this thread, have been watching it with great interest (which DH, um, doesn't share :p)

    Yeah, weird that it's on a Wed. night--but it's nice to get it all...

    Thanks Eventer13. To clarify, no long-term NSAID use, no diarrhea, she has had a full lameness eval after she began occasionally stopping (and had a full body scan this past summer--S/I joint lit up...

    Good to know, thanks asterix and CD! :)

    China Doll--I've been suspecting possible hind gut ulcers (her symptoms are not responding reliably to Ulcerguard--not that she is on a "treating dose"), but the vet practice my student uses says...

    It's a Holly Jolly Christmas, by Burl Ives.

    Makes my head explode! ESPECIALLY when it gets "stuck therein" :rolleyes:
  10. This :yes:

    Agree with this ^^ :) It should be interesting, especially now that Jon is out! With this new system (having three in the final vote) it will come down to who wins immunity next week! Natalie is...

    Yup, to all of the above :yes:

    Ironic, since AD himself competed at Grand Prix. When I was competing with my mare, I worked a lot with Jim Koford, who trained AD up the levels and put him on the...

    Ditto this with my AD mare :) She was a great event horse--very athletic and a good jumper--but often had trouble with ring work and dressage (tense and inattentive.) When she was good, she was...

    Thanks for all the input! Believe me, I have gone over (emphatically) ALL of the points with her about how important constant forage (or as close to it as possible) is to maintain and restore a...

    CHT, yes, this too was my concern! It's not quite 15 hours, but this was what prompted me to lend her the bag; I think the Nibble Net slows down maresey's consumption enough to keep her eating a...

    I'll let her know about the tapering :)--how does one scope for hindgut ulcers?

    I don't believe they put roundbales in the fields, either way boarders don't have control over what the horses get...
  18. Not sure about Gastroparesis? She has been on...

    Not sure about Gastroparesis? She has been on Ulcerguard only sporadically, not long-term. Movement doesn't seem to have an effect; she is out on pasture, nibbling at the remaining grass (and there...
  19. Could this be anything *other* than ulcers?

    A horse belonging to one of my teenaged students has been showing symptoms of ulcers, on and off (she is a 10 year old Connemara/QH and is an "internalizer", so her symptoms are subtle), and they...

    sid, yes, I (for one) am constantly deeply grateful that ANYONE owns and manages boarding barns--and provides any sort of decent standard of care! It's exhausting, thankless work, with little profit...

    I completely agree with all of the above :yes:, UGH!, and for all those reasons I would LOVE to get the hell out of here sometimes...My 2 P/T jobs (training dog and horse students) are not...

    :lol: :lol:

    I know, right? :p Right now the CAT is in the bed, but Mr. Dr. D ASSURES me that the dogs have been using it all day :) Whew!
  23. I need to move *away* from "horse country"! :eek:...

    I need to move *away* from "horse country"! :eek:

    Any other Northern Va peeps astonished at the low board prices listed by many posters--for SO many amenities?

    In our area, board cheaper than...

    Ha--big enough for a Great Dane--with room to spare! :eek:

    I agree, the pet beds I see (that are *not* the big square type) are ALL undersized; the one I got was a size "large", and I'm not sure...

    Thanks for all the tips! I bought a bed from Petsmart today; it is VERY soft in the middle and has sides (I wish they had LARGER sizes; the "large" barely accomodates one of them!), but they will...
