    Thanks for the replies! It does appear that some of the SmartVites use soybean oil, though I have read that soy-sensitive horses typically do not react to the oil. Some also have corn, which I am...

    Yes, Lipizzans do tend to be easy-keepers, so I assumed it might come down to calories as well. My particular girl isn't a total air-fern, but she doesn't need a large amount of food either. She gets...

    Hi, for some reason I have no idea how to edit the title of the post. How do I do so? Bo is in Rhode Island, very close to Massachusetts. He is half Maine Coon I believe.

    I also had bad experiences with Holman. Didn't even do basic flexions on a lameness exam and after requesting them, did only the hind.

    Eclectic, I did not say I have gotten no suggestions, but I should have been more clear about what I do mean. I was simply trying to illustrate the point that posts telling me to "just stop him" are...

    This is the problem. With the exception of a couple, I keep hearing how I must make him stop because I am training him to not respond. Well I know this! I am asking HOW to make him stop so I can...

    I am not certain but I can check. I know he gets lots of hay and hay stretcher but not much grain, even though he is a hard keeper. There have been no changes to hay or diet as far as I can tell.

    I get the question. The question is though, should we be making any animal do our bidding? It doesn't matter that they get veterinary care and whatnot. We could do that out of kindness, not because...

    Oh, please, some of you. A dead mouth is simply an expression that many trainers still use. While there can be nerve damage and scars, this is not usually what is means by a dead mouth. It is...
