    I had to give 20 antibiotic pills (not SMZs) three times a day for three weeks. I ground in the coffee grinder, barely soaked with water and then added a tablespoon or so of canola oil to it. The...

    I use two syringes. I first syringe a little molasses or apple sauce in my horses mouth, then I syringe the dissolved SMZs in her mouth, and follow up with the remainder of the syringe of molasses.

    As I stated earlier you two look great together. Unfortunately at 5'6 and 165 lbs, I have always been of the school that a bigger horse makes me look smaller. I would kill to be as cute and petite...

    Glad to know that you aren't just using Ace to help with training etc. It sounds like your options are limited and it is necessary on an as needed basis. The penile paralysis risk always scares me...

    I have been dealing with an ulcery mare for several years. Stressful events will cause a flare up if I don't do preventative maintenance with omeprazole. I have tried a combination of U-gard...

    I had to board for a while years ago and they would sometimes feed oat hay. The horses absolutely loved the oats but seemed to waste a lot of the actual hay. If it is inexpensive and you don't mind...

    Another vote for nibble nets. I have mine mounted by the four corners to the walls of their stalls. They have held up exceptionally well for over three years and really help slow mine down.

    When I am personally having a serious reflux flair up, I take ranitidine and omeprazole for a couple of days for immediate relief. Once the reflux becomes bearable, I switch and just take omeprazole...

    "Xtra Tuf boots" are absolutely great boots with tons of support. Many commercial fisherman wear them and I think most of the guys on the show "Deadliest Catch" use them. If they work for the...

    I have 4 and do everything myself. I have very limited pasture as I live in a tourist resort area. I work full time and often commute 1 to 2 hours.

    Winters are not too bad here but summers are...

    I buy whole flax and on busy days I just feed it whole, but on good days I throw it in the coffee grinder. It literally takes 60 extra seconds to grind.

    My farrier drives 3 hours to do a days worth of select clients in our area. He always come around the same time and sends me a text when he is leaving his last job to head to me. He follows the...

    One of my horses was poisoned by horse nettles which came in some hay when I boarded for a short while. None of the other horses ate the berries but "Mr. I eat anything" apparently did. It was a...

    An ounce of prevention is definitely better than a pound of cure. You can go the Horse Prerace route and it will be substantially cheaper but should help.

    ^^^^I agree^^^^

    Training is not for me. I understand that there are times one has to take the upper hand in training and breaking a horse but I have never seen anyone use this method.

    The majority of my friends feed Coastal because it is cheaper and easier to get here in NC. It costs $35 to $50 a round bale. I pay $70 a round bale for Timothy and $8.00 for a small square bale.

    If she actually has ulcers the SmartGut Ultra will not help. You need to treat with Omeprazole or Ranitidine and then use SmartGut to help with maintenance.

    Cannot help with the two you are looking at but I love the Dyson Pet. I have 5 dogs and 5 cats. It is easy to dump, has great suction and no adjustments.

    If the owner is not receptive to actual shoes. You might want to consider a boot (easy boots, cavallo, etc.) I cannot imagine there would be any issue with those; they would provide peace of mind...

    A shop vac with the extra long nozzle helps. If the nozzle isn't long enough, duct tape it to a stick so you can reach higher up.

    I didn't have any luck with it. You are better off doing the fly catcher bags. They do work.
