    Interesting about the carbon dioxide, didn't know, and yes horses exhale a lot of that.
    They were still buzzing in & out yesterday, but they seem to leave horse & human alone at present. Strangely...

    Apparently they'll either hive quickly or move on. If they hive it'll be obvious as there suddenly will be a lot more, so I can take action.

    He wondered if something in the natural flyspray I use...

    Thanks!

    Yes, I sure learned the hard way, no more Ace, that's for sure.

    I will go see my neighbor later this morning and see what he can suggest.
    I just can't believe I always run into rare...

    He's settled again this morning, phew.
    Sorry about the scrambled writing, I was clearly as stressed as the horse and auto-txt on a smartphone is a pain in the ***.

    I do have a problem here, my...

    Vet been now, got a shot of Dex & more sedation.
    It's weird, he keeps muscle twitching as if flies are landing on him everywhere.
    No hives however.

    I hope this will be over by the morning.

    :(

    Not sure what's going on, he is not itchy all over, not just the bug bite spot :(.

    Vet said to bathe for a long time and nsaid, because he prefers not to do steroids just yet. But if no matter...
  7. When they blow thru Ace, does it make them worse?

    Just had a rather unexpected fright.

    Horse is very fly sensitive, can barely be turned out, needs flysheet/boots/mask.
    Was in his stall which actually isn't buggy at all.
    Suddenly goes mental...

    I have one like that, one or two hours and he starts racing so he can be brought in. This horse actually has access to a shed and is fully covered in flysheet/boots/mask.

    I tried for 3 yrs, but to...

    It sounds like some lymphatic drainage problem following a cut to me.

    Below a rather long article but certainly worth a read regarding lymphatics in the horse.
    Surprisingly with compromised...

    Interesting thread, I was not aware of this.
    Often we handle all kinds of drugs without thinking really.

    It would be good to know which of the common drugs we use on our horses could pose a risk...

    I used to be a devoted Mattes user, but a few months back switched both horses to the Prolite and not going back to Mattes.
    Horses like it better, much better (unless I became a better rider the...

    Thanks oldernewbie, I appreciate your post!

    Not in my experience :(. Even brand new straight out of the bag and I've had flies land on them.
    Wash them a few times and they are no different than any other flysheet.

    I still buy the Amigo Bug...

    Thanks :).

    They look ever so comfy indeed, but if poor quality, I guess I'd better stick to Ariat in that case. For the price, they aren't necessarily all that cheaper than Ariats, hmmm shame.
  15. Sizing of Hoof & Woof Paddock boots vs Ariats please, anyone?

    Has anyone got those latest Hoof & Woof Paddock boots?

    I'm due for a new pair of Ariats, but those perked my interest and figured perhaps I'd give those a try, but I hate the back & forth shipping...

    I'm using Alcar on a younger horse that's worked a fair bit, and also on a horse that had exercise intolerance issues due to Afib.
    Both get other supplements as well however, but I feel the ALCAR to...

    Sorry to read this.
    I would take it one day at the time, but being in Florida, heat & humidity, if he cannot cope, and it's noticeably a struggle, I agree with Poltroon, that it may be time to...

    I've had some success with the below.

    I don't think there really is a magic formula out there for those itchy tails due to no-see ums or...
  19. What they experience at the track doesn't always...

    What they experience at the track doesn't always carry over in a different environment, you may very well have to start de-sensitizing all over again when outside of the racing environment.
    For some...

    Maybe the entire environment??

    Some horses will have no issues dealing with your loose dogs, kiddy stroller, flying umbrella on the showground, where they know they are to show, about to go in the...
  21. All of them? Some don't make it on the track...

    All of them? Some don't make it on the track because they happen not to be able to deal with it. And thereby they can't do their job or do a stressed out job, some are already stressed just being...

    Isn't that like comparing apples and pears.

    Why make people who don't trailride their or all of their horses feel like it's a failure not to cross-train. One doesn't have to be out there...
  23. If all horses were able to be trained to be a...

    If all horses were able to be trained to be a trailhorse, I guess than all horses can be trained to be matador's bullfighting horse in Spain. Some make it sound like anxiety & instinct is only in the...

    I am very interested in them too, but hesitant.
    I like them because my 21 yr old has an old collateral ligament injury (ringbone & navicular), we couldn't get him sound anymore no matter how we shod...
