    How terrified you need to be of them out depends a lot on your terrain.

    Mine have been out in many many t-storms. They go to the lowest points of their pasture, which is where the trees are, so...

    IMHO, I wouldn't have her on a full v/m supplement with the 6lb of the SC you're feeding. She doesn't need additional amounts of pretty much anything right now. The exception is that copper needs...

    Thanks for the vote of confidence Marla, but xrays are out of my league for all but balance issues and obvious bony issues :)

    Totally agree. But, what makes H/J land this way, when Dressage foals sell? People are still people, some have personal farms, most do not, there are still training barns.

    3gm is a lot, even for her size - can she come down from that?

    I wouldn't remotely count on SDU to deal with an ulcer issue. I would definitely put her on either ranitidine twice a day (3mg/lb)...

    IME that type of bruising is from long toes and/or high heels, and a stressing of the lamina. I would assume, until proven otherwise, that it's going to grow out and disappear in the next trim or 2....

    IMHO a 100gm "heavy sheet" is perfect for a wide range of uses.

    There's more to blanketing than just temperature. 35* and sunny without any wind can be quite warm for a horse, even her, and even...

    The NSC (sugar and starch) level of the Perform is 28%. Not something I'd be feeding a horse.

    That said, there are some decent enough Nutrena options :) The Special Care is 15% NSC, and they do...

    The "natural shoe" could be that she simply has more hoof wall above the level of the sole. That can be a trimming thing, it could be because you look at her more carefully later in...
