    At our barn, they use cheap plastic sleds, like kids use to go downhill, to bring hay out to the pasture. You can get them to hold a whole bale of hay, and then clip a lead rope on to the little rope...

    The most helpful advice I received when legging my horse back up was to increase time or intensity, but never both in one session. So either walk for longer, or swap out 5 minutes of your session for...

    Just catching up and wanted to chime in - my Cushings gelding does not "look" Cushings, but has an array of other symptoms that I actually didn't know would be part of the whole deal.

    The statistics on bathing and driving are so much higher because millions of people do them every day. The frequency is so much higher. How many of us will spend as much time on a cross-country...

    I like to have both IV and oral banamine paste around, just as a double safeguard.

    Ditto for bute paste & powder.

    The last thing I'd add to the list above is electrolytes, a tube or two. I...

    Those are almost identical to my horse's results, the low positive but with the clear physical symptoms (except the laminitis). We went ahead and started him on compounded pergolide.

    We did a 2 bdrm apartment with a cat. Here's the precautions we took.

    - covered all surfaces (non-cloth) in plastic
