    I've got one in about the same shape as 2tempe's. It is just very hard. I've been ready to make the call at least once a week for the last few months, but she always has a moment of pure joy...

    If the horse is gassy, it makes sense that they could have discomfort when the barometric pressure drops. Maybe look at his diet to see if you can limit gas production. I had one who did this and was...

    Take a look at Easyboot Gloves. I hated the Epic wire system, but have found the Gloves (the ones with gaiters) to be very satisfactory. Fitting is fairly precise, so if you want to explore them, do...

    Guidelines about walnut tree removal

    I finally got the big walnut trees in my back pasture taken out for timber. Of course, there are a lot of top branches and a bit of sawdust left behind. What are the guidelines for how long I should...

    No soy and using Remission made a tremendous difference to one of mine, too. It IS real. Glad you found it and hope things continue to go well for you both!

    Triple Crown now has a line of feeds that are GMO-free. One of them is soy-free as well, it's mostly alfalfa and oats (processed). Could give that a try. Pretty simple feed for the price, but the...

    I was lucky enough to watch one of his clinics not that long ago. He was someone special, sharing a soft and rational place in horsemanship. So sorry for all of the horses who will never get to cross...

    One of the saddest days I can recall here on COTH. In a very subtle way, Fred has been a part of us for so long, such a shining light, such a wonderful story, such a testament to how "having horses"...

    Please stick to your guns on this one!

    When I was little, a bit younger than your daughter, I failed to finish some task, I don't even recall what it was but it wasn't trivial. My parents...

    The needs of her riding education (new instructor or not) and the needs to correct her behavior are very separate issues. The behavior needs to be fixed, regardless of what happens with her riding...

    Definitely try having him move the cows. He who can move the other's feet is the winner; he needs to learn that he can make the cows move. Up to now, the cows have been moving his feet, even by just...

    There was an extreme amount of flaring on this foot. The shoe is placed where the hoof wall and the support should be, but only a fool would rasp off all of that flare and weaken the wall. This is...

    Same here with the pollen. Already on MSM. Tried Cough Free, and he wouldn't eat it :( Ani Hist is supposed to be good, I've had a bit of trouble getting it, though.

    Didn't Allison buy, or coordinate the purchase of, a very promising younger horse from across the pond a couple of years ago, and it became ill and had to be put down? That left her with no choice...

    Yet another suggestion--be a bit careful with pads. I have one with sensitive soles, and if pads aren't applied very carefully, they will make him a bit uncomfortable. I'd prefer something like magic...

    You can get good sturdy moving boxes at Lowe's, the large size is good for a saddle. I shipped NC to CT just a couple of months ago and it was about $35. Can't imagine why it's so much at your UPS...

    Given the givens, perhaps better he's a bit short this round--it's not that bad. Since the farrier knows nothing about how well this horse holds a shoe (eg, is he inclined to pull off with his hind...

    Well, if I ever had any respect for Velvet, it's gone now. She certainly did a lot more harm to herself than she did to McLain Ward, lol.

    You said that your dog has always been easy around others and most people find him to be sweet. You didn't know that he had the potential to react this way. Now you know. I would say that the golden...
