    My TB mare has a long whorl in the girth area. There are no issues with girthing. My younger donkey has a long horizontal whorl 2/3 of the way down her barrel, both sides. Both also have round...

    My sympathies. It is always hard to lose a special one.

    Have you thought of some sort of memorial for him? That helped me. I have a Memorial Tree which I planted for one of my horses, and now...

    There is cyanide in apple seeds. Hemlock (the weed, not the tree) and yew are deadly poisons to horses. They are organic. Organic doesn't necessarily mean mean safe.

    One of my mares -- a Belgian -- had something similar in February 2013. She had a huge winter coat (Cushings and metabolic problems), so I didn't notice anything until it burst -- all over my hand...

    I've heard that about the combined type. Mine have never managed to get the provide-your-own-halter type off.

    One of my horses had pneumonia a few years ago. The vet took a nasal swab, and started the mare on antibiotics (Uniprim). A culture of the swab showed that the infection was sensitive to that...

    We had snow on the ground for all or part of 6 months this past winter. This is normal. We had temperatures in the -20s regularly, and occasionally the -30s.

    So, my wish list is:
    - electric...

    Donkeys can manage with a horse for a friend, but they do seem to like other donkeys better. Some are talkative, and some aren't. They don't need extra clothing, even in the winter (it gets to -30...

    My veterinarian recommended baking soda washes when my donkey had hives last autumn. She also prescribed powdered dex (a tiny amount) and bute (donkey had a fever, too).

    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...
