    I did it... I had a horse through college, and paid for it, and it was nearly my undoing. Would I change it? No, not for anything in the world. But in my case, I kept the mare that I had owned for...

    That's really odd... I'd ask for her to outline her reasons and to offer if any conditions could be met to permit a one-time ride, or if she is not open to any negotiation at all, ever.

    If she's...

    So sorry for your friend's loss.

    Coastal is not a dirty word. It is not ideal, but provided it is grown and cut by someone that cares and knows what they are doing, and knows the difference...

    As others mentioned, it's blanket at your own risk. Some horses will shred their own blankets, but don't care that a friend is wearing one. Others think that the whole herd brought toys with them.

    Wrong time of year to test, but may be a cushings case. The same symptoms occurred in my retired mare following a course of dex as she had cushings (had not known prior to the dex being prescribed)...

    Just went through this with my TB mare and do not envy you at all. In my case, she is built like a Quart Horse with no withers and wide shoulders. I had to sell my saddle of 17 years, then bought...

    Since you've already pulled and she's sore, I'd pack with magic cushion for 2-3 days, then start painting with a hardener after that. I'd definitely not ride her until she's confirmed sound on hard...

    Jennywho, I did see her! Gorgeous filly. The broker I attended with purchased 1020 and then I hung out in the paddock and waited for her.

    Does anyone happen to know who 1537 sold to and what he...

    My favorite keep toes warm trick... arthritis cream. Works on hands too. Found it out by accident and have used it ever since. I was rehabbing a TB in PA one winter and part of his rehab was rubbing...

    To find the kid you are looking for, I'd start by choosing some boarding facilities where YOU would be comfortable with him living for a couple years, and then talk to the trainer/manager and see if...

    As Findeight said, some mares handle transitional estrus like Dr. Jekyl/Mr. Hyde. I own one of these. Her spring transition and fall transition (First cycle of the year and last) are horrific. This...

    Thank you all so much for the suggestions! Lots to try. I am going to give them all a go, as I think it never hurts to have multiple ways to achieve the same end goal.

    I will third the plan for a shoeing prescription. A shoeing prescription + previcox gave my mare a new lease on life for quite a while before the calcification became far too great for her to remain...

    My mare does this as well... did this. And then she added mild choke to that, and then full-blown choke. I had assumed it was upper-respiratory, but upon scoping her airway and then her esophagus, we...

    While they will survive the trip, you'd certainly be increasing their risk of complication by traveling in the heat of the day. I'd try really hard to convince DH that the daytime will just be far...

    As a practice manager at a large animal clinic, I can assure it is ALWAYS preferred by the vet to get a heads up. The vet is happy to discuss home treatment options with you over the phone, but it's...

    Horse does is 57mg per day. As mentioned they come in 57 or 227. If it's a small pill (the size of an aspirin) it is the 57, the larger is more the size of a penny. The 227's can be cut into quarters...

    I keep both on hand at all times. If you don't use bute frequently, your best bet is to buy 10 or 20 tabs from your vet to keep on hand. Those will run you about $.20 per tab. If you use bute more...
