    That's actually pretty much how I've been dealing with it up to this point, making a joke out of it. It helps she's a 14hh palomino quarter pony - not exactly the most threatening, intimidating type...

    That's exactly how the young one is. Maybe she's making face at my older mare in her stall? I'd let the younger mare in first just to see if it makes a difference... but the older mare, bless her...

    They come in one by one. The older mare comes in first, I close her stall door, then I let in the young mare in...
  9. Would you correct this behavior? (Ear pinning)

    I'm trying to decide whether or not to correct a certain behavior in my 3 year old filly. 99.9% of the time, I do not allow "ugly face" (ear pinning) while I am handling my mares. They can do it...

    Agreed, buy a size (or two!) large. You can put knots in the straps to shorten them. With my filly's blankets, I even took a tiny carabiner clip and clipped the two dee rings on the neck line...

    I'm kind of interested in the straw idea as well. My mare does a ton better with her stall with attached run, but sometimes I still find a circle worn into the shavings.

    LOL, I should've worded that better - "Anything that ISN'T Zimectrin Gold?".

  15. Is Equimax the only ivermectin/praziquantel combination?

    Just wondering if Equimax is the only wormer with both of these, or basically if there are any other comparable wormers. :)

    How much straw for stall?

    I'm thinking go trying straw as a mor economical option. Luckily my stalls are rather small, maybe 10x10 at the most. One bag of swift pick shavings makes a very deeply bedded stall.

    I'm just...

    I agree with Crowne. Also I find it easier to put on and keep on weight on a harder keeper when they're heavily blanketed through winter.

    My little foundation mare fits nice in Big D. My big halter/racing bred mare fits well in Big D too for that matter.

    I second the Saratoga one, it's definitely the coolest fly sheet I've ever had and I've owned quite a few. It runs true to size.

    This happens to my mare sometimes, too. Wiping off the sweat daily with a wet washcloth helps. Sometimes I'll use a mix of water/wintergreen alcohol on the washcloth.

    Been there, done that. I moved out, and told concerned boarders to talk to BO. When asked if I knew if they got fed, I answer honestly - "I don't know if they did or not".
