    Every time I've had stifles done, I've been told to give it at least 3 weeks and then you know what you have. So I might be inclined to not worry too much about it until the 3 week mark to see what,...

    Just throwing this out there, and it may not apply, but when one of mine stopped sweating, he had a dry, curly coat. I had noticed the dry, rough looking hair before that, but didn't really know that...

    I have only had to deal with customer service from them once, related to a return, and was not thrilled with how they handled it. Kind of rude and not very helpful, and would make me hesitate to...

    I'd be afraid to use lime juice for fear it would bleach hair similar to lemon juice.

    I am also a fan of the Ogilvy baby pads, but $75 does seem pretty high - not sure I'd be spending that much on them even though I do like them. Of course, I wouldn't bother with monogramming unless...

    SW WA state and I've used Endure and Mosquito Halt in the past with good results, but lately have been most happy with Eco-Vet. I'm just about to order a gallon refill of the Eco-Vet as I think it is...

    Once you've done it a couple of times, it will be much easier to get anything new adhered to the foot off. So if you take the time to really get it clean the first time and apply while dry, then...

    When I use keratex, I usually wash the feet with water, including scrubbing as needed -- this is the NW, so they have muddy feet 9 out of 12 months. I let them dry while I do other grooming, then...

    Or do as I did and put it on a timer (they are cheap) so it doesn't run continuously as that might keep the ground from getting too saturated. I am SO glad we don't deal with that humidity as it...

    We used a raindrip irrigation system like you can water hanging baskets with on the overhang of my barn. The plastic tubing with little hanging misters, run off a garden hose and on a timer so it can...

    Thanks all. I actually did the easycare fitting assistant thing and they did not think they had boots that would provide a good fit at this time (based on photos and measurements). I have a message...

    I'm not much of a bandwagon person, and definitely wouldn't choose to use a prescription medication just because everyone else was! I have used isoxsuprine for horses with specific issues where the...

    I've used the Rambo Duo liners for years and they've held up great. Those attach at the neck using velcro straps and then clip to the d-rings back by the tail strap. I typically leave the whole thing...

    My arena is 80x165 and has square corners at one end, round corners at the other. We were building on a slope and by doing things this way, it allowed me to go to 165 long instead of 150 without...

    Hoof Boot Help - Wide Feet??

    I want to try boots on my guy for riding -- he's been barefoot and does fine in my arena, but not so happy riding out on the gravel or asphalt or packed clay paths (i.e., hard surfaces) around my...

    Sunglasses are a bit like helmets in that they need to fit you correctly, and a brand that works for one person may not work for another. I have Native Eyewear glasses that I love, as they fit me...

    The best thing is to prevent them from ever building up! My own saddles don't ever get them, but I'm also blessed by not riding in a dusty ring (which is a contributing factor, IMO), and I clean my...

    I figure they put it in there since that is such a common question. As a buyer, I have always asked why someone is selling. I suppose some might think certain reasons imply desperation or negotiation...

    I use the apple cider vinegar in a front loader, but I read (somewhere...who knows where) to put it in the fabric softener compartment so that's what I do. Works well that way for me.

    There's going to be so much variability in the answers here, I don't know how useful they can be. I think you'd be better off calling around in your area and inquiring of those that actually do this...
