    It sounds like going to more turnout is the reason the pain was lessened, not because you stopped the Previcox. Why not see how he is with 24/7 turnout AND the Previcox? Or try Adequan?

    I've soaked pellets for both horses ever since my gelding had a minor choke shortly after I got him. I've learned that some brands soak much faster and to a better consistency than others. Most...

    How big of a pan is needed? They do sell this, which I think is really designed to avoid sand colic, but could work in the corner of a stall as well.

    I'd look at Dixon/Vacaville/Fairfield but it would be a substantial commute. Lots of horse properties though and boarding available.

    Sacramento area. Covered arena, large outdoor, and round pen. Most of the horses are fed out of slow feeders. Hay AM and PM and owner-provided lunch (i.e., pre-bagged "grain" or pelleted feed with...

    I wish I had thought to take a picture when I came off a lesson horse a few years ago :) It was my first fall and I only had time to think "hands up" so I wouldn't break my wrists. I'm told I did...

    I second the Nicker Bait pill camos. You can get a good-sized pill inside them, even a Bute tablet if you break it in half.

    If the pill is very small, stuff it inside a fig newton :)

    A couple of the stalled horses at my barn had this issue and the upside down bell boots seemed to resolve it.

    Mine get hocks sores in their paddock. I use Bickmore's Gall Salve to help...

    I did the loading dose on my mare (7 doses over 28 days) followed by monthly injections. She's been on it for close to a year now. I put her on it for minor hock arthritis (vet's recommendation),...

    My barn uses the Porta-Grazers, which are awesome (I love them), but aren't really designed to be secured. My horses are in a paddock with shelter, and the feeders don't want to traipse through the...

    My mare has minor hock arthritis and my vet recommended the 7 shot "loading" dose (every four days for 28 days) followed by monthly injections. The difference has been amazing and I can definitely...

    You can and should test for Cushing's this time of year (and I don't think there's any problems testing for IR this time of year either). If the horse has Cushing's, all the diet changes in the...

    No suggestions, but I feel for you. My fox trotter has what the vets "think" is an old suspensory issue that never healed correctly. We only think that's the problem because that's how it presents,...

    My gelding had this problem for years as well. It is caused by hay, and my vet said the only way to completely eliminate would be to feed him a complete feed instead (which was proven true when he...

    How old is he? I would test for Cushing's as unexplained laminitis in the fall is one of the symptoms. In the earliest stages there are often NO other symptoms and the horse may look/behave...

    Definitely check for Cushing's. It can cause a loss of top line as an early symptom as well as weight loss. The test is reasonably priced.

    I have a gelding with Cushing's that gets a fever each time. He gets IV banamine from the vet with the shots. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    We had determined it was the flu/rhino and...

    I use HorseTech's High Point Grass mixed in with about 3/4 pound of an extruded hay pellet. I soak it, and the advantage of that is that both horses get a little more water in them every day. ...

    My gelding's deathly afraid of chickens.

    There were probably a hundred of them at the last barn I was at. We were there for over two years and he never got over it. First, we had to remove his...

    My mare is out 24/7, although it's only a 1/4 paddock (California) and stocks up without MSM. It's worse when it's hot out. I've had both of my horses on MSM daily for about two years now and when...

    I'm also in California and the last time I weighed a flake of orchard grass at my barn, it was close to 7 lbs.

    My gelding had to wear boots 24/7 over an entire winter due to laminitis and he is kept in a small paddock so he was outside.
