    I have used plastic shoes for years, and ground control are horrible. If horsey is prone to removing shoes, GC won't stay on. The shoe will actually come off over the nails, leaving the nails in...

    There is so much more to buying boots than a "what do you like" survey. Different boots fit different hoof shapes, to the point where some boots just flat don't work for some horses. If you can...

    It has to grow out. I have used copper sulfate packed into the hole for a minor case, but I caught it very early and knew it hadn't gotten very far into the hoof.

    I've had a helmet save my life, so I wear one every ride.

    I have also fallen off quite a few times from sheer bad luck. My most recent, my very sane and safe horses butt literally fell out from...

    Samsung phones come with lookout, which can be used to track you. Even if your phone is dead, it'll record the last location of the phone.

    best fly boots?

    Mr. Arab came up with swollen hinds last night. He is 100% sound, even galloped back out, trotted sound, etc. They're a bit tender to the touch and a bit warm. It's not the first time he has had...

    I have the same issue, and it is from lifting the captivator. I am just careful how I do that to avoid hair rubs. I also get a good bit of dirt in mine when I ride off the road. It hasn't bothered...

    I would look in north Florida or Ocala area. I lived near Tampa, and our winters were normally in the low 60s for the high, upper 30s to low 40s for the low. We had few bugs in the winter. There...

    Tucker saddle questions?

    My husband had a Tucker Frontier something or other saddle. I have always ridden English and have never found a western saddle I liked until I rode in his Tucker yesterday. My entire body may be in...

    I can actually get my whole hand in the fronts. They stayed on today though. I will email them pictures tomorrow when it stops raining. The hinds twisted or loosened or something on my ride, so I...

    I adjusted it every way I could find and its either really really loose, like way more than a couple fingers, or the Velcro is barely attached. I suspect the issue may be that he has huge hooves for...

    The fit to the hoof seems really solid, though I've not done more than trot him in hand. However, the pastern straps are HUGE. When adjusted to the recommendations on the instructions, there is a...
  14. Bit the bullet and ordered Renegades - fit help?

    This is for the horse who can destroy shoes like no other. Short backed, long stride, can even step hinds off. He destroyed gloves on the first ride. Please tell me their 30 day guarantee isn't...

    I have done almost entirely cubes when hay was not available during the severe drought of 2011/2012. I literally drove 10 hours to bring back some absurdly expensive T&A that was iffy in quality...

    Oh, she did rotate in both fronts. It took them a month and a half to diagnose her with something other than EPM, but she did founder. Crappy vets here.

    The grass is not even close to short. Rye only grows in winter here, so it'll be dead by late spring. Her founder was likely due to IR, as it was a month after foaling (though she did require oxy...

    Muscovy ducks. We had a few in Florida. We had no fire ants the entire time we had them. Within a month of the ducks relocating, we had ants again.
  19. Rye grass for previously foundered mare?

    Our new place has the most beautiful lush grass, mostly rye with some other random things here and there. It used to be hay pasture, but has been neglected for over a decade.

    Mare is 25,...

    I may be thinking of another competitive trail organization. This was a few years ago. There is one that doesn't allow any boots aside from hoof boots.

    I think they're the organization that doesn't allow boots of any kind, except of course hoof boots. I was actually told that since my horse had an over stride and needed bell boots to ensure that he...

    High sugar diet with free choice barley, mare down most of the time... Seems like there may be laminitis or founder? I didn't watch the video though. A high sugar diet like she is on is a recipe...

    I put out enough for a whole 24 hour period for my ancient, thin, slow eating mare. I put them in a big flat tub, cover with water, and let them sit. Ours aren't too hard now, but they have been in...

    I live in Louisiana, so we don't get much cold weather. My 25 yo mare has always been cold natured with little winter coat. She has had trouble keeping weight since the neighbors let their...
