    I stayed in a boarding situation for longer than I should. Partly it was a devil I knew vs. devil I didn't know kind of worry that kept me there.

    Not necessarily the answer you're looking for, but I would suggest Pilates. A lot of one's ability to ride out a scoot (up to a point) is about core strength and balance.

    Good luck.

    The main reason to use the clicker is that it is *exactly* the same sound every time. There's no inflection, tone, volume or difference in voice, and that means that the horse (or other animal) will...

    I just wanted to add that you might want to add 10,000 mg of MSM to the diet as well as either the Glanzan 3 or the OmegaFields Horseshine. The sulphur in MSM is good for hooves as well.

    Good luck...

    I'd supplement him either with Glanzan or Omega Horseshine, and then use Keratex Hoof Hardener on the bottom half of the outside wall, and Keratex Hoof Gel on the sole. Be religious about the...

    Actually, a friend of mine owns a Morgan- Connemara cross who looks a lot like your horse.

    Your horse is great!

    If you can, take some lessons on this horse. This horse may be very different from the schoolies you're riding at the lesson barn, and so it may not be easy to transfer what you know from your...

    My sense is that if you've wormed with ivermectin and the fecals are still coming back with significant worms, it's likely that the horse had/has encysted strongyles, which ivermectin won't kill....

    You say that the horse had been on a "normal" worming program, but it might be helpful to know what that means.

    If you've been using Panacur, Strongid or a daily de-wormer, it's possible that the...

    Speaking as an outsider, I think the horse-racing world could learn something from the experience of Lance Armstrong and bicycle racing.

    Armstrong spent much of his career excoriating those who...

    You might try looking for clicker training classes. I've been very pleased with the results of using the clicker and treating as a basis for training. And now that she seems to like certain treats,...

    Banamine for a few days, to lessen the possibility of another choke because of inflammation. Soak all grain, and dampen hay as well, for at least a couple of months.

    You want to monitor the horse...

    There's a lot of evidence that body image changes if people do even light exercise.

    Walking and any kind of exercise sounds like a great idea. You might even try some low-level weight training....

    I just received a new Uvex and like it a lot. My previous helmet was a CO, and I've also owned IRHs, but never an Ovation, so I don't know how they compare.

    The Uvex is very comfortable:...

    He may not be a complete dog, but I doubt that he's the committed boyfriend that you are imagining.

    Depending on how large the dog is, it might make sense just to cook for him, and alternate that with some of the regular dog food. Or you could go with a dog food base made to be mixed with fresh...

    I have owned two Wheaten terriers and now own a Border Terrier, so I've been thoroughly terrier-ized.

    Both Wheatens had very sensitive stomachs and were prone to vomiting up food, and as a result...
