    Good question :). She was an auction special so I'm not 100% sure but 15 or 16. Percheron paint cross (I'm assuming).

    Well, I went ahead and body clipped her before she was fully shedded, so I don't really know if she's shedding normally! I just Googled Cushings and nothing stands out to me -- except that she did...

    Hm, hadn't thought about the alfalfa. The hay is new to her. It's mostly timothy/orchard grass but there is some alfalfa. I know they get it tested so I'll ask the BO exactly what is in it. No...

    Thanks for the replies! Yes, that was my thought initially (laminitis), but totally non-reactive to hoof testers, and she still isn't on grass. Re: Cushings: she's not fat -- she's a big boned,...
  6. total long shot -- any connection between sore feet and increased urination?

    Hello collective wisdom of COTH,

    I always find these kinds of threads kind of difficult to make sense of because what is feasible/desirable varies so much from place to place. I have always kept my horses on 24/7 turnout -- even...

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my own sweet old mare not quite two weeks ago, so your pain is very familiar to me. Dear Bitty sounds like she was a character and a big presence in your lives. ...

    I'm so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful tribute to a gentle and noble soul. Having lost a good one last week, I share that huge horse-shaped hole in the heart. Hugs to you.

    She was a character indeed and most definitely did not like to play "schoolhorse"! :). But she didn't have a mean bone in her body. Thanks for the memory.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words --...

    My dear fargaloo is gone.

    I got the call last evening that my darling Fargo had passed away. No sign of a struggle; sometime during the day she had just laid down and died. As is befitting of a sweet mare who gave me...

    Good point ;).



    Agree completely! I also think that for some mouth shapes a single jointed snaffle is a pretty nasty bit... funny that it's always seen as so mild.

    I'm holding out hope to make it to a horse trial or two next year, so legality is an issue. Thanks for the input :)
