    If he is not sore, I agree with UrbanHennery that you may want to play with a pad first. My last gelding grew an awful lot between year 5 and 6. You may be jumping the gun and hate to have to find...

    I got the padded Rambo. It is a little ugly but is super soft. I have also found that rope halters tend to rub less if they meet your needs. I simply do not keep a halter on all the time and...

    I feed a 1/2 cup a day. On a good day, I grind it in the coffee grinder. On a lazy day, I just feed the whole flax. My picky mare will only eat it with soaked alfalfa. All the others eat it in...

    It is easy to become overwhelmed. JB and Islgrl are right about the tapering and alfalfa is great. I would caution not to throw too much at your horse at one time. It really took me almost 2 years...

    Only out during the day......that glass of red wine must have really gone to my head. But honestly, those bugs are so outrageously big my chickens might run from them.

  6. Any non-chemical solutions for Palmetto bugs?

    At times I have had to put some traps out for the smaller roaches but this year I have the giant palmetto bugs. They would not even fit in a roach motel. They showed up after the hurricane flooding...

    Actually, most stupid southerners are not being stupid when they burn on 90 degree days. It is the safest, most considerate time to burn. Generally, on those hot humid days, there is absolutely no...

    Well bless your heart.....As my grandmother used to say "God don't like ugly." Please do not consider NC in your endeavor to find a more refined and acceptable place to live. Tobacco Road is...

    Ditto.....my daughter had to have a black quarter horse which really isn't the easiest to find. We found this 3 year old online, drove 6 hours to get him, paid a ridiculous amount of $ by my...

    I have a gelding that is always gassy. I found, completely by accident, that Uckele G.U.T. has seemed to make a difference. It is inexpensive enough that it may be worth a try.

    Wow, you actually have a fair amount of organized trail rides near you. The Battleboro ride (Rocky Mount) is September 13. Even if you cannot make the ride, come out and have dinner Saturday night....

    Are you diluting the betadine? I am always told to dilute it with water so it looks like weak tea before flushing or scrubbing with it.

    Where are you located in NC? Often, if you go to one or two organized trail rides, your will meet a few people. Over the years, we have made friends from all over the state based on the organized...

    My horses would be fine but it does seem a little over-kill. I am sure it only keeps the honest bikers out.

    An "in camera review" of documents is 100% routine. The whole point of the judge reviewing it in chambers is to protect the victim not because the judge is a caveman. What happen to the right to a...

    I am right their with you two. I also took it pre-dinosaur in 1991.

    This thread makes me nauseous just reading it. I am so glad that phase of my life is over!

    Good luck to all of y'all...

    Been there done that with a 4 year also. We literally fought with her for over an hour. We tried all the nice methods which we have learned over the years and absolutely nothing worked. Finally, I...

    If you are thinking about adding beet pulp, it seems like you could just switch to a senior feed, preferably TC Senior, which is high in beet pulp anyway. You might also try the Cocosoya or some...

    I finally found a farrier who can keep shoes on my overreaching gelding but it wasn't easy. He pulled three shoes off in less than 24 hours with one farrier. That was the only time I ever used him...

    I too am okay with calling AC if someone has a concern but clearly the person is trespassing with no right to be pilfering at your barn. I could even live with them leaving water but have a real...
