    ALL samples, whether your vet takes it or you mail it in, have to be kept moist, cool, and as air tight as you can make it. I haven't read the SP protocol for mailing, but another one (whose name is...

    CW is indeed tartrate, which is the cousin to pamoate. It's the smaller dose pamoate.

    Resistance IS out there. It will be with you soon, most likely. There's just not any good reason, with a...

    For sure, without sufficient grass, a horse can become deficient in Vit A, as it just isn't there in hay, and sometimes they don't get enough from the fortified feed :(

    I don't know what causes...

    In my general area, Panacur is also useless, but we tried it anyway as it could be effective (enough) on a given farm. It wasn't, but Strongid is. So, if you have a high count, it's worth doing...

    I'd ask why. Many older toothless horses have survived well for years on soaked alfalfa cubes. No, in the heat, you can't leave 12+ hours worth of soaked hay out there as it might start to get...

    The problem with ZG is that every single case I've read where there's a reaction, the horse has had it X times/years without any problem :(

    Do some searching on the resistance to the daily...

    Yes, definitely start with a FEC. It might surprise you and be fairly low, in which case you could hit him right away with Equimax (I'd be very hesitant to use Quest on this guy).

    But if it's...

    What does "poor" mean? If it's a rough coat, you can't fix that, you just have to wait for new hair to grow.

    If it's just dull, then it could still be a few weeks if it's a matter of getting some...

    Oh, don't mistake my comments for saying you can always prevent bleaching :) You can't. If the horse has the "bleaching gene" he's going to bleach, unless you avoid all sunlight, and that's just...

    Yes, Equimax.

    There's no reason to use ZG given the potential issue :(

    Know too that a double dose of pyrantel pamoate will kill tapeworms, if for some reason you need/want to separate out just...

    IME ANY blanket/sheet has fit issues with a given set of horses. All over there are horses who can't wear Rambos, or Schneiders, or {insert brand name}.

    This one fits my bit WB very well, and I...

    Interesting you posted this - I had the same question. The instructions say to seam-rip it out if needed for more shoulder freedom, so that seems to imply it would still fit close if it's too tight...

    Poor feet does further point to a nutritional issue. Lysine, copper, zinc, all play roles in all these things, feet and coat (as well as skin, and others not visible).

    If I were in your...

    But you should be feeding by weight, not by volume. The feeding requirements are based on the nutritional analysis, then however many lb it takes to get to X acceptable level of nutrition. The...

    however much Fe is in there is probably too much LOL I really, really hate that companies even add it to feeds. Most horses get way more than enough just from the forage.

    I don't think any of...

    What you've listed is weight per quart. Not calories.

    Low Starch is 1428 ca/lb. Complete is 1596. Sr is 1546.

    Feeding more hard feed, or a higher calorie hard feed, isn't going to make up the...

    Iron, copper, and zinc have a relationship, whereby if one is in excess, or not present enough, it affects the others. When Fe is high, is suppressed Cu and Zn, so just adding Zn isn't enough. ...

    If the nutrient needs were truly being met, then while coats may still bleach (you can't prevent all of it), they will still be soft and shiny, not dull, coarse, with fishhook-like ends. Make sure...

    I too would treat for ulcers and see if her appetite improves. Being picky about ALL her food is really a classic ulcer sign.

    Don't change anything else, just add an ulcer treatment. You can...

    Soil that's high in iron produces forage that's low in copper and zinc, so yes, even if he's eating appropriate amounts of a fortified feed, if the bulk of his diet isn't providing enough cu/zn, then...

    IME, that sort of fading and crispiness to the coat can easily be due to insufficient copper and zinc.
