    Thanks Simkie. When I weighed our hay, 18-20lbs is roughly what our guys get daily (3-4 flakes morning and night). The hay is not that well-balanced... so even 20 lbs is already more than enough iron...

    Thanks! I looked at the High Point and it's great from a vit/ min standpoint... but then I still need to add calories. Playing around with adding K finish. Ugh...

    You said blood tests were normal but did that include Cushings/ PPID? Pituitary dysfunction would probably contribute to both failure to sweat and failure to grow an adequate winter coat.

    You understand that it is not the horses that develop resistance, but the worms, right?

    We batch FECs by pasture and then test individually if there is a high shedder. After a couple of seasons...

    Since you are busting someone's chops about stats, can you cite these, please? I am aware of only one study (that I consider flawed) that purports to show this.

    While I agree with much of your response to wendy, there is a little too much irony here...

    You don't think people are freaking out on this board any time there is a serious eventing injury/...

    If you have access to electric, you can use a plug in heating pad. If there is no power at the barn, you can microwave and roll-up a heating pad at home.

    Failure to find other associations may simply be a lack of adequate sample size - you'd have to look...

    In the meantime, can you make your water at home "weird"? Add a ton of blue dye. Put jump poles or barrels around it, park a piece of machinery nearby, block a section from view with standards? So...
