    I second this. Lightweight and a lot of air flow. They weren't a good fit for me- I have a tall head and felt like the helmet perched on top rather than coming down towards the base of my skull- but...

    Thank you for the thought. I agree that if the forage available suits the nutritional needs this can be a good way to go for the sedentary horse. A big driver to go ration balancer for this horse at...

    Blue Powerade hides a multitude of powders for my horse. Some medications, like pentoxyfilline, go into a pretty viscous solution in it, making them hard to spit out. Your mileage may vary.

    He was already thriving on 1lb/500lb, sadly. I got him up to 1.5/500 for a month this winter when the temperatures were in the low teens and he thought Christmas had come. Air fern!

    ChocoMare, I'm...

    Bingo. :) He aggravated an old injury and is walking only for the next few months while he heals up. We have great grass and hay that meet his calorie requirements so he doesn't need the volume of TC...

    I hear you. It's been a thing for him for as long as I have had him- he just doesn't like the texture of a pelleted grain broken down. He will eat beet pulp and rice bran, so when he really starts...
  7. Looking for a palatable, chewable, low NSC ration balancer

    My elder statesman is on sabbatical for the summer and has switched to a ration balancer from Triple Crown Lite. I got him Triple Crown's 30%, but the pellet is very hard and difficult for him to...

    Only when Dad's out of town. ;) He loves our critters but is allergic. He lives on allergy medication, and the kids sleep on the couch so that he can breathe in the night. When he's away I leave the...

    My guy has anhidrosis and does best on One AC and an electrolyte. I keep him on both from mid-April to early October. I had him on StressDex SB for awhile, but it seemed to be hard on his stomach. He...

    Grab a reusable cold pack. Target and CVS both sell a two-pack that comes with a little sleeve with velcro. The pack tucks into the sleeve, and then you can velcro the ice pack around the leg.

    My fellow exercises according to the weather. If I think he can hack for 20 minutes, he hacks for 20 minutes. If I think it's too hot for that business, we take a trail ride in the shade, or...

    Tip is a poor sweater. Summer in Baltimore is no fun for him. I took him to a show or two last summer when my class would run first thing in the morning, but if I thought it would go after 10 and the...

    Crosby PDN or similar old-school pancake. In my experience they don't show up a ton on the internet because they get passed around inside the barn. As far as I know my kid sister's pony Crosby is...

    Since you don't own, you might consider buying a saddle with a pretty generic fit and a good shim pad to allow you to adapt the fit to most horses. Note I'm not saying all- regardless of Tad Coffin's...

    For my dog, who is not super food motivated, Pupperoni is about equal value to hot dogs and cheese, and doesn't get gross on a walk. I also like that it can be broken into small bites. Your mileage...

    Yup, I've bought a couple on eBay, and sold a couple there too. If you're buying something custom, or that could have been customized or fitted, you have to know what you're looking for. That means...

    Put a treat in your hand. Come. Show treat. Sit. Hold the sit and hold the eye contact in the sit for a couple seconds. Give treat. Lather, rinse, repeat for awhile and then start phasing out the...

    Mine isn't a cactus cloth fan either. He will lean into a curry comb all day, but when it comes to getting sweat marks and schmutz off, he would prefer a nubby towel that air dried until stiff.

    On a horse with 12-18 hours of turnout, who has a summer hair coat, hasn't gone out in the mud, and is not shedding, a full routine takes me about 20 minutes tops. That's curry, curry face and legs...

    She did the equivalent of stubbing her toe and then gimping around for a few minutes while swearing. She walked it off and she's fine. :)

    In general, if you see a horse whomp itself on something...
  21. Furniture: Upholstery vs. Leather for homes with pets

    Had an interesting chat about the pros and cons of each and interested in additional opinions.

    Which do you think is easier to maintain in a household with pets: leather or upholstered furniture?...

    It is for this reason that I have told my sister that for Christmas next year, after my fiance and I tie the knot, I would like monogrammed saddle pads. :) All of my baby pads are all between 10 and...

    Islgirl, that grand excitement at the sight of another dog sounds like Astrid when we first got her. What really helped with her was getting a trick- any trick- relatively solid in the house, and...

    Thanks for all the responses! It seems encouraging. A single relatively low fence is not going to be enough for her, in part because the HOA's in this area generally mandate split-rail or paddock...
  25. Spin-off: Invisible fence as a back-up for a physical fence, and the drivey dog

    I didn't want to take over the Invisible Fence thread as this is not a time-sensitive solution for the OP's issue.

    Some posters have brought up that they have both a physical fence and an...
