    What Chachie said. Don't reward her for inappropriate behaviour. I'm working on behaviour modification right now, with an OTTB with food-related over-excitement and pawing.

    Cute face!

    You should be able to feel ribs, but not see them. The neck fat is very stubborn to get rid of.

    I give my ancient pony (going on 40) the same shots as I give the rest of the herd:EEE, WEE, WN, PHF, rabies and tetanus. The shots are not given together. It is done in three batches, separated by...

    No. I have lost two to recurrent uveitis. It is heartbreaking.

    In my experience, more than enough. I got a heavy duty special order from Best Friends, and my draft mare wore through that in 2 years. It took her 6 months to go through the regular one. Then I...

    I'm an older rerider than you are, and I understand. I will ride at the walk until I'm darned well ready to take it up a notch. Smile, breathe, do you own thing. Riding should be fun, not stark...

    Snow shoveling doesn't hurt my back, but it kills the knee I dislocated 7 years ago. I don't understand how one can not twist to fling the snow out of the way. Lifting it and trying to wade through...

    I've had my ancient pony (+35 yrs. old) on gamma oryzanol for at least 3 years now, under veterinary supervision. It seems to be helping him to maintain his muscle mass, and I haven't seen any side...

    You can get good information about tying up from thehorse.com .

    It is not trivial. It needs to be addressed by diet and exercise changes at the very least, and a consultation with your...

    Wonderful news. I look forward to finding out how the saddles got moved so far, and how they were found.

    I had a mare with the OP's described symptoms, including leaning on walls. It got to the point where I had to put her down, as she was very uncomfortable. An extensive post-mortem came up with...

    I wonder if RV anti-freeze would work? Unlike automobile anti-freeze, it is non-toxic.

    Well, certainly the fuel won't gel, but gas engines do come with block heaters, at least in my neck of the woods!

    My first thoughts --

    - add some methyl hydrate to the gas tank (maybe this is...

    I agree with Ruby Tuesday and js re panel fit in the back. The saddle is sitting on two small points rather than a large flat area. Also, I think you have too thick a saddle pad there, and one that...

    I do think there is a degree of 'ripoff' in vet practices. For example, one rabies shot at the yearly municipal rabies clinic = $25. One rabies shot added to the bill of a spaying = $65. Grumble.

    I have heard multiple times from horse nutrition experts that salt blocks were designed for cattle, who have rough tongues. Horses, with their smooth tongues, can't lick enough to satisfy their...

    What if you and each of your co-workers within earshot of the event were to e-mail him "Please stop belching" each time the event occurs?

    Yes, I have done it with a drain plug de-icer, when I was without power for 2 weeks during the 1998 Ice Storm. The generator has to be able to handle the load, usually 1500 watts. You don't need to...
