    I've rehabbed my horse many times, and he is horrible on stall rest, i.e. exploding, rearing, etc. when I hand walk or do the under saddle rehab. I have sedated him many times for under saddle rehab...

    The 10-12 hours in her stall, does 8-10lbs of hay last her the whole time? That would be my first thing to try, making sure she has free choice hay in her stall. With my horse free choice forage made...

    Ok glad to know I'm in good company at least!

    Hubby checked it out yesterday and thankfully it tore external of the frame so he'll be able to replace the cord. He's going to install a plug in the...

    Hasn't been a 1.5 hour ordeal, but when my gelding suddenly gave me trailer loading trouble I took the trailer out to the barn several times just to load him up, hang out and unload. I also changed...

    I can throw the 150mg tablets into his grain whole and he eats them right up. He won't eat the 300 mg whole, nor will he eat ranitidine crushed. He got keen on those methods and protested. I know you...

    FWIW, I've had great luck with ranitidine for preventing my horse's ulcers from returning (well, ulcer symptoms). After the initial scope/treat/re-scope 2-3 years ago his symptoms kept returning on...

    A 220 count bottle of 150mg ranitidine is $10 at Walmart (equate brand). Cheapest form of ranitidine I've found. Their price hasn't changed in the 1 year I've been buying it there. No script needed.

    A sudden increase in stopping at fences was the first sign of my horse's navicular disease, even before any head bobbing lameness showed up. That was only something I could realize looking back on...

    The whole clipper blade doesn't have to be flat on the body part, sometimes it's only one end of my blade doing the cutting. And I pull the skin over a bit when needed in really tricky spots :) Hocks...
