    It doesn't take much to shock horses. I had the same problem -- horses would reach out for water, then jump back. I had the electricians out, and they couldn't measure anything with their volt...

    sdlbredfan, they didn't do both eyes at once, just the cataract surgery and the vitrectomy, same eye. The eye Dr. said I was to sleep on my side, not on my back. None of the literature from the...

    Thanks, oldbutnotdead. The lethargy is wearing off, but I'm having an enormous arthritis flare-up. I was feeling so awful on Friday that I was in tears, planning what music I wanted at my funeral....

    Vitrectomy Recovery

    I had cataract surgery and a vitrectomy on Wednesday. The surgery went well, but was quite painful, and my blood pressure went into orbit during the surgery. I'm starting to see a little out of the...

    Any feedback about using it a second time? Does the horse resent having it taken off? I might be able to get duct tape on my OTTB once, but not likely a second time,.

    There is cyanide in apple seeds. Hemlock (the weed, not the tree) and yew are deadly poisons to horses. They are organic. Organic doesn't necessarily mean mean safe.

    One of my mares -- a Belgian -- had something similar in February 2013. She had a huge winter coat (Cushings and metabolic problems), so I didn't notice anything until it burst -- all over my hand...

    I've heard that about the combined type. Mine have never managed to get the provide-your-own-halter type off.

    Donkeys can manage with a horse for a friend, but they do seem to like other donkeys better. Some are talkative, and some aren't. They don't need extra clothing, even in the winter (it gets to -30...
