    I've always had good luck with molasses applied liberally. But its such a sticky mess and not convenient for barn staff. I tried brown sugar when feeding powdered doxy and that worked really well and...

    I used the flavored doxy powder for 2 months on my gelding. He hated it. I tried syringing it in all kinds of mixtures but it seemed like getting it wet made it taste worse. What finally worked for...

    One fly season my horse developed bug allergies. Benadryl helped with the itching and hives til I got the AniHist, which I hear they aren't making anymore. Sucks because that stuff was great. For all...

    My mostly white gelding would have this happen whenever we trailered somewhere. Its gotten much better as he has gained experience traveling but I found probiotics to be helpful as well as the alfalfa

    Seconding what Deltawave said, could be the flax. Soy gets the bad rap but flax isn't always the miracle everyone says.

    My gelding is intolerant of flax. It didn't seem like it caused any hormonal problems but it gives him diarrhea. Not fun with a white tail. I tried him out on the chia seeds last year, and while they...

    I tried these too to keep the bugs off my sensitive boy but again had no luck. I had them braided in his mane and tail. Didnt keep the ticks away either

    I tried them a few years ago when I got them on sale at Equine Affaire. They did nothing at all and were a pain in the butt to try to keep in. I gave up after a couple weeks.

    SLW, what is your method for cleaning up a mane? I let my boy's hair grow wild this winter and it needs some work.

    I thought mine was sensitive to soy but it actually turned out to be the flax. Relief for me because the soy free diet was way more difficult to get weight on him and get him to eat. He doesn't have...

    I have used the cashel feed rite bag on my messy eater and its worked out great. Keeps him from spilling half of the expensive triple crown feed when he takes a bite and walks around to look at...

    I just got 60 days worth (at 5 grams 2x day) of the compounded powder from my vet for $270 and thought I was doing good at that price. He originally quoted me that price for one month of it but ended...

    In my area what is mostly called partial care means they provide hay, feed and bedding and then feed and turn out/ bring in. All you do is clean the stall. It seems like its usually around $250-350....

    Yeah it would depend on how much hay it would hold and how well it works in winter, if freezing would be an issue. When I soaked hay I used the small mesh nets and a muck tub.

    Ideally I'd like him to be out 24/7, but no one is willing to leave their horses out in the craptastic weather we have and he is way unhappier being out alone. Its going to be -10F tonight with the...

    Forgot to mention, he has a mirror. It made no difference. For the most part the walking and weaving has stopped, its just on bad weather days when they don't get to go out and his routine changes...
  20. stall walking/weaving (recommend a sedative?)

    I'm looking for a way to get my 13 year old paint gelding to settle down in the stall and relax. He's never been so bad about this until this winter and we moved to this barn in October. We had him...
