    I find them fairly true to size, but NARROW. Great for a young TB with no chest. Not so hot for something beefier.

    It's got ketamine in it? Wow. I had no idea ketamine could be used topically or casually.

    This is NOT like Surpass. Surpass is diclofenac, an NSAID. It's like topical Advil.

    This is NOT NORMAL. This is a huge, gigantic red flag that you seem to be brushing off. I'd spend a whole lot more time and effort trying to get to the bottom of this. It sounds like the horse may...

    No. Horses don't have that sort of reasoning capability.

    No reputable company will put the logo on anything, though, since you don't have rights to use it :)

    Good lord, people can be stupid. Or, I suppose, entirely too trusting.

    Tractor attachment question

    We are now the proud owners of a little tractor. Very exciting day. (My husband is totally thrilled.)

    ALL fat sources have omega 3 and omega 6. You're not skirting the question by feeding prilled fat. In fact, you're likely just loading WAY up on omega 6. Cool Calories is just dry vegetable oil.

    Yes, this is what I would prefer.
