    My little foundation mare fits nice in Big D. My big halter/racing bred mare fits well in Big D too for that matter.

    I second the Saratoga one, it's definitely the coolest fly sheet I've ever had and I've owned quite a few. It runs true to size.

    He's very cute and has a kind face. :)

    There's a few things about his environment that make me concerned.

    - The first photo, there seems to be a single strand of wire at about knee-height? I...

    This happens to my mare sometimes, too. Wiping off the sweat daily with a wet washcloth helps. Sometimes I'll use a mix of water/wintergreen alcohol on the washcloth.

    Been there, done that. I moved out, and told concerned boarders to talk to BO. When asked if I knew if they got fed, I answer honestly - "I don't know if they did or not".

    I've found spraying my stalls down with Pine Sol helps cut down on the flies. Also, I have those automated fly sprayers set up. Those REALLY help.

    You may also want to try a different kind of...

    Use one without ears, without an extended nose, and make sure the velcro straps aren't dangling where another horse can grab them. Sometimes it seems like getting one that's nylon lined and not...

    What do you want it to say? My spanish is pretty poor but I can make an attempt!

    My mare acts like that when her heat cycles are bothering her. Does she exhibit similar behavior in the winter?

    When my filly was younger she used to fling her grain, she was also a rescue so couldn't affod to lose the feed either. I used a muck bucket, and hung it by using bucket straps clipped to the...

    I used to work at Home Depot with a similar policy, and this was the exact reasoning from management. They'd rather lose the few dollars, and have a repeat customer.

    Bute can be a real pain to get a horse to eat - I could see why these would be handy, being encapsulated. Even flavored bute powder is a no-go with my mares.

    Also, the little sachets are handy -...

    Ouch, that stinks OP! Since the BO is probably not holding up their part of the boarding contract (feeding twice daily, cleaning stalls, whatever), I'd say no notice is required. I'd tell BO ASAP...

    How about a sidepull with a rope nose? The rope makes it just slightly stronger than a halter.

    6 AM and 2 PM is when the barn feeds, then I go out usually between 6-8 PM and give my girls a small, extra meal.

    I've never found wiping it on to be as effective - it always seems to get wasted staying on the rag/sponge/whatever than actually getting on the horse.

    Hm.... I didn't think of that. My mane/tail stuff is an aerosol. I'll have to put some water in a spray bottle or something and see if she sneezes.

    No hives, luckily. My other mare is the one who gets hives if I use most store bought fly sprays. :rolleyes:

    It was diluted by about 50% with water at the start of the season when the flies...

    I'm actually not very happy with the Kensington boots I'm using now - BUT they're the "natural" line, the ones that are horsey-colored and have no fleece. My mare ripped off the straps of 2 pairs...

    My palomino mare hates fly spray - and I'm beginning to think she's mildly allergic to it or something? :confused: Every single time I fly spray her, without fail, she sneezes repeatedly until I'm...

    All the local farmers around here just charge per bale. I agree that it's buyer beware.

    My mare's been on and off MSM for years, and she has a very sensitive stomach. I've never had her colic from the MSM.

    Has his environment/diet changed at all? Has the weather been crazy?
