    Interesting you posted this - I had the same question. The instructions say to seam-rip it out if needed for more shoulder freedom, so that seems to imply it would still fit close if it's too tight...

    Poor feet does further point to a nutritional issue. Lysine, copper, zinc, all play roles in all these things, feet and coat (as well as skin, and others not visible).

    If I were in your...

    But you should be feeding by weight, not by volume. The feeding requirements are based on the nutritional analysis, then however many lb it takes to get to X acceptable level of nutrition. The...

    however much Fe is in there is probably too much LOL I really, really hate that companies even add it to feeds. Most horses get way more than enough just from the forage.

    I don't think any of...

    What you've listed is weight per quart. Not calories.

    Low Starch is 1428 ca/lb. Complete is 1596. Sr is 1546.

    Feeding more hard feed, or a higher calorie hard feed, isn't going to make up the...

    Iron, copper, and zinc have a relationship, whereby if one is in excess, or not present enough, it affects the others. When Fe is high, is suppressed Cu and Zn, so just adding Zn isn't enough. ...

    If the nutrient needs were truly being met, then while coats may still bleach (you can't prevent all of it), they will still be soft and shiny, not dull, coarse, with fishhook-like ends. Make sure...

    I too would treat for ulcers and see if her appetite improves. Being picky about ALL her food is really a classic ulcer sign.

    Don't change anything else, just add an ulcer treatment. You can...

    Soil that's high in iron produces forage that's low in copper and zinc, so yes, even if he's eating appropriate amounts of a fortified feed, if the bulk of his diet isn't providing enough cu/zn, then...

    IME, that sort of fading and crispiness to the coat can easily be due to insufficient copper and zinc.

    Gatsby crosses very, very well with TB mares, and adds height, as well as adding bone if the mare is fine, but won't heavy up an already bone-y mare. The resulting foal would be about 85% TB, and...

    That's what I thought based on what you said, and it's very, very confusing. That's not high at all. That's only borderline necessary deworming, and is low enough that if you were due to deworm in...

    Yeah, that was my problem too, sadly, and my guy isn't even 'scoopy". He's just a bit short in the back and needs upswept panels. Think the shape of Prestige, County, Black Country, etc.

    GREAT!! That would be more concerning to deal with, so yay :yes:


    :confused: how much does this vet know about parasite loads? 200 is the point at which you seriously consider deworming, so you...

    Pictures would help.

    It's not just about how much lateral clearance at the withers. It's about how high the panels come up the withers. The farther up they come, the greater the risk of...

    Most horses who have a reaction have never had a reaction before. Just something to think about :)

    Correct.

    However, please don't use the ZG :) Just search here, with "ulcer" and you'll see why.

    Don't forget he needs good nutrition to heal well. Protein especially - healing takes about as much protein as a horse in light-moderate work

    It's about temperatures more than the calendar :)

    You want the temps to be reliably above 45*. That's the low end of when eggs will start to hatch in to the infective larval stage. By deworming...
