    This was my experience. Depo did nothing, regumate fixed the issues. I agree the handling issues make it less attractive, for sure.

    I think you could supplement the carbguard with the min a vite lite. It is a ration balancer.

    I think someone at BS explained to me the MAVL and WT were practically the same, except for price. I'd...

    I used the smartpak until they nearly doubled the price a few years ago. They used to call it easy keeper grass. Now I feed high point from horse tech and am super happy with it.

    They used to sell min a vite and min a vite light which are similar but cheaper IIRC

    Not sure regarding rider fit, but you might consider the cob version of the kent and masters saddles. My Arab is super wide and it fits her well. Easy on the pocketbook also.

    This. I have found you must teach these sort of horses to reach and stretch out to any desired rein length. The inclination for my half Arab is to get too short in the neck and behind the bit.

    Show wear and saddle pad must be treated for stains and/or bleached same day. I use detergent and borax. For schooling stuff, I don't bother trying to keep it white.

    I'd email HT, the owner is very knowledgeable and got back to me same day via email.

    Basically how I learned it, except I just visualized the poles/rail. If you are proficient in HI it's really just taking that off the rail on a diagonal.

    Wow, glad you got a probable diagnosis. I thought it wasn't exactly cellulitis, as there was no fever present.

    Wow, that's weird. No ideas, just sending good thoughts that you get it figured out.

    Personally I would not wrap, if you cannot increase turnout I'd leave well enough alone. My horse has lymphangitis and sometimes the leg looks huge from her standing around, but my vet said leave it...

    I have a goat and my herd bound mare is not attached to her at all. A mini or burro would be better, IMO.

    Is the horse actually lame or uncomfortable? If not, is it really necessary to do something about it?

    My horse has damage from cellulitis and the leg sometimes looks swollen if she stands around....

    Glad to hear he's better. I've found exercise to be very beneficial once the initial soreness is gone. That's great you caught it before the hair falls out.

    Oops, sorry, I missed that.

    In that case I'd give the powder a go if the vet is ok with it.

    Another thought is ranitidine, if you can dose 3x a day. You can buy it cheaply off amazon. Might be...

    Same here. I've been happy with the results. I do it once a year.

    I've found the traction on the boots is not quite enough depending on the time of year, you may need to add the studs, which is easiest to do on cavallos. YMMV

    I use a piece of carrot for previcox, poke a hole in it with a clean hoof pick.

    My horse always responded to SMZs (orally) so it's easy to have them on hand. The usual protocol is banamine, bute, cold hosing and SMZs for my horse. That said, I've started treatment ASAP before it...

    The prerace med is compounded so you don't know exactly what you are getting and I don't think it's made in the US. Personally with confirmed ulcers and hospitalization I'd pony up the cash for UG,...

    You can also use petroleum jelly to keep the skin from drying out. My vet recommends a clay poultice after the initial inflammation goes down. You cannot cold hose it too much in the early stages!

    You can also try hoof boots also, renegades easy boots and cavallo all have that option.

    I ride on grass at home and use cavallo hoof boots with studs for better traction. I find grass and even a small incline can cause problems, wet or dry. I use studs on all four. Even shod horses had...
