    We are on a well, but we have a whole-house water filtration system. I'm not ashamed to admit I've tried show sheen, cowboy magic, santa fe and a few other horse products, as well as mixed chicks...

    I'm at my wit's end. My daughter has long hair. It is fine, but there is a lot of it. It's straight, naturally blonde, unprocessed. She likes to wear her hair down (headbands give her headaches,...

    I agree with CHT, the arabian shows around here have mostly DIYers in the sport horse arena. Main ring (hunters, western, saddleseat divisions, driving) is still primarily trainers though.

    Thanks everyone for the tips and links.

    I ended up "stripping" the shine off with rubbing alcohol rather than the leather de-glazer. I was worried about taking off too much dye, so I figured I'd...

    Does he have access to loose salt? How is his water intake/urine output? Sodium deficiency could cause the gait anomaly (4 beat canter) and lethargy.

    Very sorry for the confusion, I used the word improperly. The vet used her thumb and ring finger to forcibly thump/flick the horse in the eye 3x. She did not enucleate the eye.
