    She didn't do amazing with the extra protein really, that's why I switched her to the 12. Any opinions on gro and win Alfa? It's a 12% as well.

    supplement comparable to Enrich 12?

    I was feeding my pony Enrich 12 and ran out sooner than I thought. I went to buy it today and the dealer said it's being discontinued and they're no longer carrying it. Sooooo... I have nothing for...

    Thank you. It helps to hear this because I always HAVE been a micromanager, and having him at home for 13 years I've been afraid that I just thought he wouldn't be happy away from me. I think I know...

    We will be about 1/2 hr west of Indianapolis, so that sounds like it would be quite far to take him. :/ But thank you for the idea.
  5. Hi, thanks. I'm in central Indiana and have...

    Hi, thanks. I'm in central Indiana and have looked for hours and hours on end. I've asked every trainer I know, called every barn I can find and still can't find anyone. I have found horsepeople who...

    Hi, yes, it is necessary at this point. We are 40 minutes from the city, plus another 30 from my husband's work. The 40 minutes to the city is just the city we've decided on that will put us closer...

    Thanks, I just made an appointment to get his advice. I would obviously trust a vet's health opinion, but I guess part of the problem is that I haven't had one vet over the years that has monitored...

    Thanks so much everyone. I really appreciate all of the input, advice, kind words, and support.

    I know and I have asthma. So I completely understand. But I guess part of me just doesn't know HOW bad it is. You know? I mean, I have had asthma my whole life and need my inhaler very infrequently....
  10. Hard WWYD: moving older copd horse vs euthanasia, etc. (little long!)

    Life took over and I haven't been on the boards so I'm sure nobody recognizes me, but I'm hoping for some help still if you don't mind!

    I'm torn about what to do with my old guy. He's 24 and has...
  11. Hi, actually yes, I'm about 1/2 hr away.

    Hi, actually yes, I'm about 1/2 hr away.
  12. looking for temporary companion for my horse- central Indiana

    I have two horses at home and one is going to a new home. My aged gelding will be here alone and I'm hoping to find a temporary companion horse for him until we sell our house and move him to a...
  13. I haven't been on this board forever, but just...

    I haven't been on this board forever, but just happened to see this post when I logged in! We used them and had an absolutely MISERABLE time. It was horrible. The barn failed inspection and they...
  14. Thanks so much for the advice everyone....

    Thanks so much for the advice everyone. Unfortunately we don't have any horses we could borrow for pasture mates. My mom has minis and I don't know that they'd respect the fence and I don't want to...
  15. Euthanizing a horse with only 1 other on the property?

    I've never had to face this. It won't be any time soon, but it just has me worried in case it ends up needing to be sooner. I have an oldster with copd and he's ok right now, but come spring who...

    Thanks. That makes sense and I definitely understand that. It seems like COPD is cruel in that it constantly plays with your hopes with how much it comes and goes with new homes, seasons, ups and...

    Thanks for the help/input everyone. He's definitely not at the point now where I think he's suffering one bit. He's a pistol most days and you can definitely tell when he's off. I just fear spring...

    I guess that's part of the problem... I'm really the only horsey person in my family. DH is very understanding and promised me that he would never let me become oblivious to Ice's suffering, but he's...

    If your horse has COPD/rao...

    Kind of a morbid question I guess, but what are your limits as far as cost/treatment? My forever horse is almost 23 and has copd (guess it's all called rao now??). It seems mostly allergenic in the...

    Mine come in to their paddocks usually around 9pm or so, but can still go from their stall to paddock overnight. They're usually only ever locked in if there is very severe weather.
  21. Need grain recommendations please (switching from enrich 32)

    I have a pony who is 2 1/2- 3 in June. She's been on Enrich 32 for the past 1 1/2 years. She was doing great on it because she couldn't handle getting a "normal" amount of grain and ballooned. As...

    This is the setup I have also and is wonderful. One tip also to think about... we have stalls with dutch doors, paddocks and overhangs. We also divided the pasture in 1/2 with a gate that can be...

    I would very much like having my 2 horses at home if I were middle aged with grown kids. Having a 3 month old is NOT the best time. We've not enjoyed having them here while I was pg and now that he's...

    Honestly, yeah... I'm quitting. We've had the horses home for almost a whole whopping one year and I'm done. I had horses basically "self-care" before at my mom's house. If I didn't put them out,...

    I honestly can't afford the chopped hay even if I could find it reliably around here, which I can't. It's just not that available. I just really feel like he could switch back to regular soaked hay,...
