    OP, sounds like you're doing the best you can for your pony. The possible loss of muscle and your mention of his coat make me think possible Cushings? That said, he might just need another month of...

    By "impressive", the vet was indicating her astonishment with how *high* his parasite burden was. She was really, really concerned about the large die-off. But I thought <200 wasn't *that bad*... ...

    **UPDATE**

    Blood work and FEC are back!

    Blood work indicates everything is within normal limits - YAY!!

    Vet said his FEC is 196 and described it as an "impressive" parasite load. But...

    Very good read Calamber! Thanks for sharing!

    My gelding looks a lot like Mindy in the article above.

    Oooh, I see what you're saying. Yes, antibiotic. It's for the major dental work; to ward off possible infection. That said, he doesn't like it. Having a hard time getting him to eat it. So his...

    ReSomething - his feces are well-formed, do you think that is a good indication of gut flora? Two of my last four oldies-but-goodies had chronic diarrhea, even on pre/probiotics, so I am thrilled...

    Although on COTH I hear it happens a lot, in 17 years of using fly sheets I've never observed a fly stuck under one!

    My horses get fly sheets 24/7. I spray legs, bellies and faces with pyrahna,...

    No problem JB! I still don't know if I made the right choice. I just really, really want to feed him!

    Got some soaked alfalfa cubes down him tonight and will do the same in the morning. Boy,...

    JB, the only reason I continued the fortified feed was because he'd been on it already, so although I don't know how much, I made the decision to take the risk because his system had been on it. It...

    Update: Day 2

    The woman I got him from gave me a partial bag of Nutrena Triumph Sr that she had been feeding him. I did not ask her how much he was on, as it was a horribly sad day for her to...
  18. Feeding the emaciated senior horse **UPDATE #39**

    I just took in an emaciated senior gelding. He's 28 and I have a lot of history on him. He's been on 12 acres of very good grass pasture with 2 other (quite hefty, younger) mares for three years. ...

    Thanks Gumtree! This explanation makes the most sense. It seems to me a stray voltage would (a) affect all animals that use the trough or (b) would have zapped the pony as she stood in the puddle...

    You know, I thought that but it's (a) dry and (b) she'll stand where it's wet, in the puddle I made washing the bucket, and drink out of the puddle next to the trough? Would that still make sense? ...

    Pony won't drink out of trough

    My old pony won't drink out of our metal trough all the sudden (as in the past 24 hours). She's drank out of this trough for 3 years with no problem. She had front shoes put on a month ago.

    My horse is like this.

    Here's what works for me.

    One, I often hear you should keep a "forward" horse busy. "Busy" in terms of transitions, circles, etc does not work for me.
