    An ounce of prevention is definitely better than a pound of cure. You can go the Horse Prerace route and it will be substantially cheaper but should help.

    ^^^^I agree^^^^

    Training is not for me. I understand that there are times one has to take the upper hand in training and breaking a horse but I have never seen anyone use this method.

    The majority of my friends feed Coastal because it is cheaper and easier to get here in NC. It costs $35 to $50 a round bale. I pay $70 a round bale for Timothy and $8.00 for a small square bale.

    If she actually has ulcers the SmartGut Ultra will not help. You need to treat with Omeprazole or Ranitidine and then use SmartGut to help with maintenance.

    Cannot help with the two you are looking at but I love the Dyson Pet. I have 5 dogs and 5 cats. It is easy to dump, has great suction and no adjustments.

    I had a young mare that was really difficult to give paste. I started giving her applesauce or molasses in a syringe every once in a while. She willing takes paste now and I always follow up with a...

    If the owner is not receptive to actual shoes. You might want to consider a boot (easy boots, cavallo, etc.) I cannot imagine there would be any issue with those; they would provide peace of mind...

    A shop vac with the extra long nozzle helps. If the nozzle isn't long enough, duct tape it to a stick so you can reach higher up.

    I didn't have any luck with it. You are better off doing the fly catcher bags. They do work.

    Can you leave him in your aisle so that he can move around freely to the others? When my daughter's old pony returned home for retirement, I finally gave up and let him stay in part of the aisle...

    I have been known to keep a sick chicken in the bathtub but I draw the line at chickens and pigs in the house, diapers or not!

    In a pinch, just braiding the glow sticks in the mane and tail helps.

    I find it hard to be sympathetic. I hope they all gag!

    I am on the Outer Banks, but I have always understood there to be very little in horse activity in that vicinity. You really need to be a little closer to the Triangle or Southern Pines area. There...

    I will say that I am always amazed at the manner in which many posters choose to convey their messages. You can often say the same thing in a nice way or in a snarky way. There are a few CoTHers...

    Mine gets 13 SMZ tablets in a syringe which she grudgingly takes as she knows that is immediately followed by a second syringe of applesauce or molasses to wash away the awful taste! I started out...

    I have the reverse issue. My horse is always at ease on trails. It is open fields that make her more reactive.

    I am also of the school to do what makes you happy. If trails are not your...

    We had a small pony that made it to 42 and we know that because he and my brother were both born in May of 1970. It became a running joke over his last 4 or 5 years because, at the beginning of each...

    I looked for the Tucker for my extra-wide mutton withered gelding and ended up getting the Circle Y Cottonwood Flex 2 with the extra-wide tree. It was not my first choice but I have actually been...

    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.

    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...
