Agreed, buy a size (or two!) large. You can put knots in the straps to shorten them. With my filly's blankets, I even took a tiny carabiner clip and clipped the two dee rings on the neck line...
I'm kind of interested in the straw idea as well. My mare does a ton better with her stall with attached run, but sometimes I still find a circle worn into the shavings.
LOL, I should've worded that better - "Anything that ISN'T Zimectrin Gold?".
Exactly what they said!!!
Just wondering if Equimax is the only wormer with both of these, or basically if there are any other comparable wormers. :)
Thanks for the input everyone! Im in IL so no one to want the straw after it's soiled.
Stuff like Vaseline, alcohol, cotton balls, peroxide, etc, can be found at the dollar store for very cheap.
I'm thinking go trying straw as a mor economical option. Luckily my stalls are rather small, maybe 10x10 at the most. One bag of swift pick shavings makes a very deeply bedded stall.
I agree with Crowne. Also I find it easier to put on and keep on weight on a harder keeper when they're heavily blanketed through winter.
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.
