    I used it when my horse had to weary EasyBoot RX boots 24/7 following surgery. When it was trapped in the boot like that, it did NOT work well at all. It ended up forming a sort of paste and just...

    I'd also be curious, Bluey, to hear what meds the Arab was put on - was it pergolide?

    So far, Tristan seems to be handling the pergolide beautifully. He's always had a monster appetite and the...
  3. Appointment scheduling apps, website add-ons, etc.?

    I am working with a friend who is a talented equine massage therapist. She'd like to grow her business, and I have some experience in web design and strategy, so I'm trying to help her out.

    It was nasty bitter cold, and it's only going to get worse! Sigh.

    Thank you all for your thoughts. I knew that temperature regulation problems could be a side effect, and I watched him like a...

    Cushings horses & temperature regulation?

    This is long and detailed, but the takeaway question: have you found any drastic changes in winter warmth with your Cushings horse, and how have you managed the Cushings horse that suddenly seems to...

    This has been an interesting thread and I'm curious. I also have an older (19yo) horse who needs more conditioning. He has zero TB in him, as far as I know.

    For the long walks: entirely on hills?...

    I ran through things with my vet yesterday, and unfortunately not great news. She pulled blood to do a Cushings test. I ran the alfalfa ideas by her and she was not enthused, based on the way he...

    Elastikon absolutely - it's the only thing that will stay on a heel. You can do another loop of vet wrap or duct tape over the Elastikon to project it.

    That said, grit and dirt might still work...

    He will eat ANYTHING, including at least one bite of whatever I'm eating around the barn. The only thing he spat back out at me was pizza. It's amazing. If there's any hay or grain left in his stall...

    Thank you all - that's good information.

    I'm not terribly concerned about weight; he's actually at a decent weight right now, it's just that he dropped for the first time ever this winter, after...

    Talk to me about alfalfa

    True confession time: I don't know anything about feeding alfalfa. I have a basic understanding of other types of hay, but my horse has always been on a basic, local grass hay.

    Until this year,...

    It is correct, but I scribed for a dressage judge once who threw fits about it. She made me run to the TD and triple-check.

    I like the look and think it's neat and acceptable, especially on a very...

    That's an interesting thought, and you might be right. From my POV, it seems easy enough - especially if you have cars coming and going every day, as they seem to - to spot the car, call the person,...

    Why is it so frustrating to buy a car?

    I've been saving for some time now to replace my daily driver, which failed inspection this spring after 237k miles and 17 years, may it rest in peace.

    I have been reading reviews, taking test...

    Lots of great advice here. The only thing I'd add to it is to know your horse. Is he stoic - so the mild signs you're seeing from him are actually a much bigger deal? Or is he kind of a wuss and goes...

    Bareback pad for higher withers?

    My guy's withers are more prominent in his older age, and I'd like to get a bareback pad that accommodates those. We do a fair amount of trail riding bareback, especially in the winter. I've been...

    Idiot puppy update: she's getting more destructive while loose. Last week she knocked an extra doorbell ringer off the top shelf of one of the bookcases; I found it broken open on the floor with some...
  18. How soon do you ride/work after injecting Pentosan?

    It's my understanding that Pentosan acts as a mild blood thinner, and so anything that might increase the chance of bruising, bleeding, etc., should be avoided 48 hours after an injection.

    In the...

    I get that they're not being entirely responsible in paying for this dog's care, but from the rescue's POV there is a legitimate reason for them to deny you fundraising on their behalf. I work in...

    What's working for us now is a whole lot of trial and error. Each time we remove something our puppy surprises us again. For example, did you know that it was possible for a dog to separate DVDs into...
