    I don't know your horse at a all, and being total devil's advocate here, but often times horses who are total jerks can have a personality change if they're out 24/7. Just my experience! Sounds...

    I know you're not a huge fan of the hackamore, but have you tried different bitless setups? My mare developed a rearing problem in the Dr. Cook's bitless bridle. She goes great in a mechanical...

    We did the same thing - my dad built them. Made the bottom slatted so water could run through and not pool up. Worked great. :yes:

    From what I remember, they come in two widths - regular and superwide. The regular size looks like a wide or even an x-wide. I saw a girl with a sharkfinned, narrow horse try to use one - with the...

    That's actually how the boarding barn does the stalls - boarders are welcome to provide bedding if they so choose, but the stalls are just bare mats if not. Maybe I should just give up on the...
  6. In and out stalls in very windy central IL - bedding that won't take flight?

    My mares are at a totally awesome, great care, close to home boarding barn that has in-and-out stalls. Each stall leads out to a small run, and they have access to the runs 24/7, regardless of...

    I have some hay nets from Busy Horse, they're very very similar to the Nibblenets. They really do slow them down and reduces waste by a lot. Interestingly, when given the option of the hay net and...

    The barn I board at has stalls with runs attached, and pipe panel fencing. Works great. :)

    I also agree on upping the flax to 1 cup, and you can try the MSM at 20,000 instead of 10,000. Flax REALLY helps my mare with her skin allergies.

    They also make AniHist for horses, it's...

    I guess we'll have to agree to disagree - diet and management matters A LOT when it comes to laminitis and founder in my book. I know it's definitely not the end all be all, but it's a huge part!

    Thanks for the info! She doesn't have heat in her hooves, no pulses, no founder stance. I'm already managing her to ensure she doesn't get too much sugar in her diet. What other changes would you...

    Thanks for the input! She's 17, and I don't believe any chance of laminitis. She does have Equine Metabolic Syndrome, but is managed/fed accordingly (no sugary treats, gets just a handful of...

    I forgot to add - farrier used hoof testers on her, no response. He said her feet appear well-balanced and no red flags.
  14. Very sporadic lameness in front leg(s)?

    My mare is showing some sporadic lameness I thought I'd ask COTH about.

    She is 100% sound at the walk, and if on very soft ground (think squishy mud or very soft sandy pen attached to her stall). ...

    To me, for the most part, rescue = saved horse from imminent death. I'd say most horses are upgrades, not rescues.

    My filly... I don't know if she'd be an upgrade or a rescue. She had a BCS of 2...

    It gets tricky when it's a partial care place, is there a BM or BO who can address it?

    If it were my decision, I'd hang a crop/driving whip on the stall door, and instruct feeders to point it at...

    Thanks for all the replies everyone, I really appreciate it. :)

    Last night when she came in, she was the only one on that end of the barn. My older mare decided she didn't want to come in (brat,...

    Here's her pedigree if you're interested, I've been told "Valentine" horses usually are not the cuddliest horses:

    I don't know what her dam was like, but I bought/rescued? (BSC of 2 when I got her, full of worms, lice infested, etc, etc, etc) her she was only out with a couple minis and another weanling. After...

    That's actually pretty much how I've been dealing with it up to this point, making a joke out of it. It helps she's a 14hh palomino quarter pony - not exactly the most threatening, intimidating type...

    That's exactly how the young one is. Maybe she's making face at my older mare in her stall? I'd let the younger mare in first just to see if it makes a difference... but the older mare, bless her...
