    Got it but as others have said, she's probably just in a funky, down hill growth stage where's she's going around all hollow-backed to boot, and should be fine with time. The Yak stage has...

    The high-headedness is undoubtedly the Arabian influence and is natural. They're called "drinkers of the wind" for a reason. I wouldn't worry about it as I suspect when she gets round, you'll find...

    Yep, have had it happen too and I do believe I got a colt that year. Good luck!

    What about starting him on a course of Estrone? It's cheap and easy to give and shouldn't hurt anything and just might help. I've used it to great effect on my daughter's Welsh gelding who has had...

    I think mini donks make wonderful companions for big horses, however, I would have found a mature miniature jenny donkey rather than a weanling jack, but he was probably quite cheap. At the very...

    Mine are in field fencing and do keep it well trimmed around the bottom. There is also a perfect mini rump-sized impression about mid way down and all the way around the mini pasture as they love to...

    I have 3 with a 4th on the way. Mine do get grass, but nothing lush, and do get grain, but only what amounts to about two handfuls, twice a day. Or rather they get alfalfa hay pellets, BOSS and...

    No it's not cheap and I have 3 draft crosses, 2 who are heterozygous for PSSM and the third who I don't suspect it in at all but figure the diet is probably good for him anyway. Feeding 6 cups of...

    I thought I read where most horse get sufficient vitamin E through pasture and hay, so if your horse is getting decent pasture and good hay, then it should be covered. Also reading on here like from...

    I'm curious for more detail about dumping several bags of dry concrete mix into the slurry, if I even understood that correctly, then raking it in? I too have an area outside one gate in particular...

    Yes, good to know. I've spoken with Holly in the past and she seemed a very nice and down to earth person. I had wondered about the affiliation with DTHs. Glad that's now over.

    Without a doubt the most cuddly baby equine we've ever had. From day one, she would march right up to you to be adored. Alas, the extra goofy TB mare has moved on to bigger and better things and...

    The ONLY time I've had an issue with my guy was last fall, in early November, at Chatt Hills doing a 3 phase. It was a chilly day and his first time there and I'm now thinking a quarter sheet would...

    I've been riding in a Nathe for the past year and it is a great bit but is very squishy and one of my geldings seems to love munching on it and has abraded it. It's still useable but then when used...

    I didn't like GOT basically because it's so grim and depressing. I see enough crap every day to be depressed about without having to read it too. However, I have enjoyed watching the mini series.

    Please let all the other circus animals follow too. Especially the big cats! Love Cirque; hate Ringling because of the animal acts. Will not condone it with my money.
