    1. The purple color stains everything
    2. Can't use it on the hoof walls, just ask the manufacturer

    If the horses hooves are too wet, you should consider...

    As long as your farrier is experienced with glue-ons, the only "cons" in my experience is the co$t. I had a foundered horse in glue-ons (Polysteels) for a couple of years. The cost was double that...

    Most vets want to know what the horse's vitals (temp, heart rate, respiration rate, capillary refill time, etc.) are when you call. Why wait to take her temp? Takes but a minute or two and provides...

    It's hard to visualize what you're talking about. It would be best to post pictures of your horse's hooves if you want meaningful suggestions or advice. See some of the other recent hoof threads...

    Tell them if they want to get paid they need to send the records to your vet. That may provide the motivation needed.

    Biting is a totally different animal. A horse that leans to snatch grass believes he is in charge and has little to no respect. It most likely knows better but chooses to do what it wants anway. ...

    Using stirrups that are too narrow is dangerous. What does the riding center say? Don't they have wider stirrups you could use? Is this your own horse? If not I don't understand why you need to...

    Nutritionally this is fine. The only thing I'd add to it is 6-8 oz of ground flax seed. Bermuda hay, while usually low in NSCs which is a good thing, is known to increase the risk of colic though. ...

    The higher end Schneider blankets and sheets (V-Tek?) have the gussets in the front. I've never seen rubs on the sides/shoulders of a horse but many yat the point of shoulder.

    Then there's the...

    Can you get Bag Balm in Canada? In addition to lubrication, it helps heal abrasions, lip burns and cracks better than prescription salves. Believe it or not, Bag Balm is what many dermatologists...

    What an absolute shame! Everyone loses. I don't understand how they (BLM) can cancel the contract with the prison before receiving the independent auditor report though. Hope they get to the bottom...

    A Horse of Your Own by M A Stoneridge. An excellent book for beginner owners. It's been a classic for 25 years. I've heard it was recently updated.

    Keep in mind though, quite a few vets (mine included) suggest half that dose be given when evaluating a colic. The full dose may mask the seriousness of the situation. Always contact your vet...

    I believe the Poulin Etec Senior is quite new. It has more fat than the regular Etec.
    Their regular Senior is worthless, IMO.

    Just one poop since this started and none overnight? Impaction is likely. It sounds like you don't have a regular vet? In any event get someone out ASAP!

    Cheaper but the company (Prerace) is *very* sketchy. The Florida address they provide is bogus and the drug is made in Panama under who-knows-what conditions. There is zero recourse if the stuff is...

    The Poulin senior doesn't contain molasses and is higher in fiber then TC's senior. In addition, it is not chunky and stuck together. I'm surprised it's higher in NSCs as the ingredients are all...

    Glad the textilene type sheets work for you. Here they become rather soft in the sun & heat, molding to the horses' body. They don't stay stiff which would help airflow. Wish they did.
