    I can't wait to put him out 24/7. It's been not quite 3 months of stall rest yet. I CAN NOT ride him. He is a race horse who is already insane with a ton of ace on board so turnout is probably...

    I had to Google fodder biscuit! From what I understand it's almost a grain replacement, not forage replacement?

    How else are stallions supposed to "prove" themselves as sport horses if they aren't allowed to get out and show?!

    Even young stallions need to start at lower levels, just because they are a...

    Unfortunatley it's hard to come up with a diagnosis with limited diagnostics. Maybe talk to your vet about what diagnostic step is the best bang for your buck if you have financial limitations. I'd...

    I'd skip xrays and do an abdominal ultrasound. IBD and generalized GI lymphoma shouldn't be excluded. Both are managed with medications.

    Wet food is ideal for sure. It's up to you, some people say prescription diet is garbage - but then again your cat hasn't reblockaged while on it.

    I have concrete with mats AND compacted dirt stalls. Both deeply bedded:

    Both have advantages. The dirt one is better for horses who are in all the time because there is more natural drainage. ...
