    I used it for a 6 week trial to see if would help my mare's hocks and timed it so that she was in training at the same time (so she could build up the muscle needed to carry herself properly). It...

    Agree that getting the vet out might be a good idea. Or at least e-mail the photos and ask if a visit is required.

    I've only dealt with scratches once and it was some time ago, but my vet...

    I used the Easy Boot Trail for my gelding with laminitis. He had to wear them 24/7 in his paddock (about 1/4 acre dry lot) for an entire winter. They stayed on very well, and Easy Boot actually...

    How much alfalfa can he tolerate? My gelding goes insane if fed a alfalfa/grass blend that's any more than 40% alfalfa or so, but has no problems with half a flake or so per day (3-4 pounds) to help...

    I'm so sorry.

    I'm currently trying Cool Calories on my slightly underweight Cushing's gelding. He gets hay, but is in the same paddock as my mare and she eats faster. Since he's in charge, it's not too much of...

    Get a gaited trainer out. I had a "mystery" gaited horse and I messed around for 5 years trying to figure out what he was trying to do (and most of the time it was pacing). A gaited trainer...

    My vet doesn't think that Bute for a day or two is a good test for pain. When I was trying to determine the cause of my mare's grumpiness under saddle, my vet recommend a month long trial of...

    Could it be a heat rash? You could try hosing those areas off on hot days or after work and see if it helps at all.

    The mule version definitely works for big ears, as does the Bucas.

    My 16 year old mare was increasingly getting grumpy under saddle, especially when asked to collect and carry herself properly (which is new for her as she was a trail string horse for many years). ...

    Definite drought. And while it's been irrigated to keep it green it's still only half an acre :) It's supposed to be in the mid 90s this week, so if she shuts off the water, I don't think it will...

    Thanks! It is irrigated right now, but the BO will stop the irrigation before I move in and can put cows on it to take care of anything that might be there right now. I would have to give 30 days...
  14. Paranoid question - Dry lot size for two horses?

    I'm a super paranoid horse mom, and my vet's not helping :)

    I have two horses currently on a 1/4 acre dry lot. My gelding has Cushing's (NOT IR) and a history of laminitis, which has not recurred...

    Definitely test for Cushing's and IR. It's not a particularly expensive test. I think my vet charges $85. Have it shipped to Cornell for analysis.

    My gelding's first and only symptom of...

    25 minutes to barn from home or work (which are 5 miles apart). 30 minutes to an hour to get back home on weekday afternoons, depending on traffic.

    I go daily as my gelding is on pergolide and...

    My gelding lived in the Easy Boot Trail for an entire winter following a mild case of laminitis. They stayed on 24/7 in a 1/4 acre paddock and held up very well (although I did buy a 2nd pair so I...

    My gelding had to wear hoof boots for an entire winter due to laminitis, in a 1/4 acre paddock, with rain, mud, etc.

    His feet were FAR drier inside the boots than if he hadn't been wearing them. ...

    I personally think that MSM is probably more effective and it's definitely cheaper. I buy it from HorseTech so I know that it's made in the US and not China.

    My mare has an area on the left side of her neck/withers that sweats profusely sometimes during warm weather, even when she's only mildly sweaty elsewhere. In her case, it's obviously nerve damage...

    Weight loss, lack of muscle, failure to shed, and lethargy are all symptoms of Cushings. He's young for it but it's not unheard of. My gelding's (much older though) only obvious symptom was...

    My gelding wore the EasyBoot Trail for a whole winter due to laminitis. I only had issues with rubbing in the first week or so. I resolved with the use of knee high nylons and Caldesene. Take the...

    I'm pretty much convinced they work if you buy the right product. My gelding had watery manure for years. The vet said it was from hay, not to stress over it, and if I really wanted it to clear up,...

    Navicular is one matter, but with shelly feet and frequent abscesses I would really be looking at his environment and nutrition. My mare had the crappiest feet when I got her. Shelly, brittle,...
