At least they realized the snake wasn't for them and sold her before they starved her to death, I suppose. I'm so glad she found you!!
These are delicious!
And yup, just rinse/squish all the gooey parts off with the seeds in a colander or bowl.
If they're giving him alfalfa as a treat, that's the first thing I would shut down. If he's touchy with it, it won't matter one whit if you remove it from his grain if they're giving him flakes of...
So, what's the deal on her condition? It sounds like she knows how to eat, and that she's not sick...so did her previous owner just never feed her? :(
Geez! What brand of waterer is it?
I agree with Highflyer that the barn should not CHARGE you to water your horse. If you were all "Poopsie needs four buckets filled with 72 degree water three...
Yawning and grinding are also frequently seen in ulcery horses.
Alright, finally found a tag off of my Safechoice Senior. I don't know how useful this will really be without a fixed formula--yours is probably a little different, PH:
Wheat Mids, Corn...
I agree that it's probably wise to just scope the horse. I'm unsure what they want to ultrasound and radiograph?
Keep in mind, too, that omeprazole takes 3 ish days to start to work, and that...
You have to buy premium membership to attach pics to your posts.
You can upload them to photobucket or the like and link, though.
I am generally not a fan of the NB shoes, but as with all...
That's a really nice looking side pull! I've only ever come across the rope ones. Where did you turn that up?
Yep--that's fine. It's a trough heater :)
A "bucket deicer" is something like this for a five gallon bucket.
Geez, I'd forgotten about that mess. :(
A bucket deicer isn't going to have the oomph to heat your trough and keep it ice free--you're going to need a trough heater instead.
Ha, Betsyk--we have a whole family of crow bars :D
Liquid Nails is also a good addition to the duct tape. And WD-40 :yes:
It sounds like you have a really good game plan!
One more thing to discuss with the new vet, especially since pilling stresses out your kitty: transdermal preps of meds. It's a cream that you...
Things that we have needed after bringing horses home in August that are not on your list:
A good knife
Hoses of various lengths
Medications--injectible banamine and sedatives,...
Took my trailer to Discount and they didn't even blink. I'd spoken to them beforehand, as they had to order the tires to fit.
No laughing here :) It looks like a nice trailer!
Looking at the site, it does look like mats are a non standard option on the steel trailers, and without them, that lip is a lot less pronounced....
Is he choking? That behavior sounds like he's quidding.
If he's choking--food is actually getting stuck in the esophagus--then I would scope him. Take a peek what's going on in there.
I have no exclusions/limitations on my policy other than the usual "we don't cover routine stuff and joint injections" and my deductible is $300.
I do not find that out of line at all.
I outfitted the crew in these this year and they are awesome!
I don't know jack about grazing muzzles, but I see another angle here:
When you say the mini is sad, is she pining for your gelding? And that is why you're asking about muzzles, so they can be...
Not to mention that choking comes with a huge, huge risk of aspiration pneumonia...and this horse is choking at every meal. So twice or more daily? Gah.
I actually read this as manure will require a permit--it is agricultural, after all. The definition of "yard waste" sure doesn't include manure.
My thoughts exactly. If this horse is choking daily, you really, really need to get a scope in there and take a look at the esophagus.
I have a horse that was choking very mildly...
