    But two in less than three weeks?

    It was an anticlimatic night. Walking wasn't getting anything done, so I threw her in the trailer around 1:30 am. Produced a pile, so I was happy. But she...

    We've already checked thyroid levels. I, too, am not excited about increasing her prascend dose as I do not want to deal with the possibility she'll exhibit signs of going off feed and being...

    Thanks all :)

    She improved for a few hours after dosing the banamine, but then was down again. Restful down - not thrashing or rolling. I walked her and she had no appetite. Vet came out this...

    I have a mare that turns her head right and nips at nothing when I am working on something especially difficult for her mentally. The behavior decreases, then ceases, as she learns the new exercise.

    Old pony with frequent mild colic

    I've posted about this superfantastic pony here before. She's a gem, nearing 30 years old, has cushings and ringbone. She's on Prascend and Previcox and both work well for her. I've owned her for...

    I'm giving this company a try this winter. They can be custom ordered in any size and with the opening of your choice.

    OP, I've posted recently on the happenings of my Cushingoid pony. She's been on Prascend for 2.5 years. Late last Aug, she colicked mildly. She did it again in late January, and even though she...

    I think the amount is fine, but why the hold? Are you just waiting for the vetting? If so, I'd continue to show the horse until the vet gets there. That said, if new parties want in, I'd let them...

    I have sold many horses, mostly client horses, but some my own, and non-refundable desposits can be all over the board. Typically they are a fairly small amount, under $1k, and are any amount the...

    I'm a toughie, but my oldest daughter is the world's biggest drama queen when she is hurt. A skinned knee brings a bood-curling scream. Drives me BONKERS. The pain scale is an excellent idea. ...

    As others have said, NO TRIAL. I just sold a horse where the potential buyer came and rode the horse 3 times, then came out with her trainer to ride. That was all fine and good; I was willing to...

    I never wash. I use a similar concoction of cream as above posters and I do wrap. I think the wrapping helps keep the site protected, clean, dry, and keeps the scabs soft.

    You are allowed. Giving him a comfortable end now or later is commendable. I put down such a horse when his buddy became too arthritis-ridden to make another winter. They went together and,...

    That's weird that rubbing alchohol isn't working for you - it's my go-to for my two white mares!

    Yes - keep the tail covered :) I use tail bags on my white-tailed horses. Miss Stinky's Mom on Ebay sells NFL lycra bags, surged, in any length/color you want. I buy them from her (extremely...

    OP, consider your winter. Consider what may be problematic if you have to put him down in the winter. Use that to help you make your decision. It's never an easy decision, but you are the only one...

    Skin issue!

    While at a show last Sunday, I noticed a raised "welt"-type mark just in front of my mare's shoulder. It was about 2"x 2.5". DH and I looked at it carefully and summized it was likely from a bug...

    OP, it is a lot of hardware in their mouth. It's for that reason a horse needs a lot of time in it to be comfortable.. A horse will only get "dull" if you allow it to :)

    I used to, but started working with a BNT who had me school in the "bridle" all the time. Her theory is that snaffles and curbs have such different mechanisms, it doesn't make sense to train in one...

    OP, when I do a post-workout rinse I hose them all over, then sponge legs and body with a glug of vetrolin in a small bucket of water.

    If I want to do more with the legs, which is extremely rare...

    Broken Horn saddles are of exceptionally good quality. I like my Broken Horn better than my Blue Ribbon.
