    I was at a barn, years ago that used it. The advantage, for them, was that it's cheap, cheap, cheap. Would I ever use it for my horses? No. It's been so long that I can't remember all the reasons...

    If it's a true evasion (not physical or fear based) you might try the following:
    I have a horse who, when he didn't want to go any further or leave home, would back up, as an evasion. He'd even...

    He looks great! I have one with deformed legs and hooves, and he gets around very well. He's even jumped some low fencing. Yours looks much sounder than mine.

    WTF? First of all that person's name is Angelico. Secondly, the OP has no act to clean up. It is the farrier who may or may not have given an injection. What ever happened to reading for...

    I recently had a visit from someone, from the deep south. I was appalled at the prejudicial remarks coming out of her mouth. I just couldn't believe that an educated person would say the things she...

    I've been present when a vet oversedated a horse.

    Frankly, I'd be scared to death for any animals in a certain poster's care (and the shoer). That attitude speaks to a real lack of concern and...

    If it were me, I'd love to give that document to the DA. Talk about sleezy! Loan sharks are cheaper.

    Having towed with both an SUV and a truck, I choose a truck. Why?
    Because, hauling two warmbloods, I found, when I went on the interstate for a long haul, I could barely make 40 mph, going up hill,...

    I've met him, in So. Cal, though haven't trained with him. He has a good sense of humor, is very knowledgeable, and cares about the horses.

    My take on the whole Sonoma thing is that, because he...

    I just put my horse on the Equiotics, he's 2 months post colic surgery and he sure is a happier boy. The surgeon is the one who recommended it, as I'd never even heard of it before. I've had my...

    It always comes down to money, doesn't it? Instead of a trainer being honest with a not so capable rider (old or young, it doesn't matter), they will do anything to keep that client happy, and the...

    Gotcha. I think the idiots who come on here pretending to ask about something, when, in reality are hyping their product, do more harm to their credibility and potential sales than if they'd just let...

    I've had abcesses, before, and only this year did I have one that took over 1 and 1/2 months to blow. I was considering getting an MRI, as the horse was so dead lame for so long. Keep up the soaking,...

    I'm not taking the OP's side, per se, however the head ER surgeon, who operated on my horse at UC Davis last month, recommended it to me.
    I hardly think he would have done this, nor would UC Davis'...

    For what it's worth, my horse just had colic surgery, and the surgeon (who's expertise is in colic and ulcers) recommended it to me, as that's what they put him on, post surgery. Biosponge was also...

    This woman has grandkids and post about all things "magikal", unicorns, and fairies? Good grief, I thought she was 15 or so, by the way she writes.

    Any trainer who hands you back a horse, because it spooks, is no trainer in my book. That's what trainers are supposed to be for... helping you AND the horse get past problems.

    Yikes!

    I have to say that I'm with the OP, on this. I think her sense of humor and just plain horse sense (as opposed to demanding twit boarder sense) is what I'd want in a BO. I can't stand...

    Another place I boarded, the owner decided to breed his stallion, in the middle of my riding lesson. I wish he'd written that in the boarding agreement. LOL

    What? You couldn't give the doc's cell # to them? For shame.

    My favorite story is the barn where the "pet" herd of buffalo stampeded through the dressage arena. Luckily, I was working with an...

    Is there any new person at the place, that could have had an interaction with him, that you're unaware of?
    I ask this, as I once worked with an animal, had a great relationship, and all of a sudden...

    If you have clay, lay some landscape fabric down, beneath the gravel, otherwise the clay and gravel will become mixed, and you have the same problem.
