    I do the straw trick, too - works well, though pony gives me dirty looks when I do it. Haven't ever tried using hay, though - I like the thought that she can eat it after it falls out (less clean up...

    I have 4' 2x4 no-climb with a wooden top rail on all my pastures and dog yards. Anyplace that the fence is meant to contain my dogs, it's on the ground, but in the horse areas, it's a couple of...

    If they can't smell, it doesn't matter what you try to tempt them with, they won't eat it. Please take them to the vet ASAP - if they're not eating, they really haven't improved.
