    As a previous poster said: lure him into a stall while you are there. Make sure he knows that he gets treats, pats and cuddles in the stall. Then when he is outside that stall he gets sprayed with...

    I am a huge fan of TBs - Off the track, breeding, racing, whatever - BUT - this really doesn't sound like a good plan. If you want to breed a triple crown winner, you need to get to know TBs - not...

    In my experience - and I start all horses to cope with flags, whips, ropes etc.- if they have had a couple of good sessions (around 10 - 20 mins each) or are basically well handled, albeit...

    One of mine has trained me to fiddle with his forelock - twirl it round my finger as I'm talking to someone or waiting. He puts his forehead low against my leg so his forelock / top of head is just...

    A friend and I put costumes together for two little girls on their welsh ponies. The tomboy was dressed as a knight with her horse with cover, poll tassles and all. The other child wanted something...

    We hunt over wire all the time, and often over barbed wire too. Horses get used to it, we aim for the posts and they rarely have any problems. The only problem I see is that they don't learn to jump...

    Either tell her up front that you won't be taking her anymore, or tell her that you are frustrated with her being so slow. Next time you are going somewhere tell her you will be leaving at such and...

    I've taught large numbers of children to ride, not usually in a riding school type system, but rather a get out and have fun way. They have all turned out to be good riders, well admired for their...

    I understand what you are saying - BUT: The product I used is a recognised omeprazole treatment, but is uncoated so that the drug treats ulcers in all areas of the gut. The article you quoted...

    Naturally, we have different laws here and no FDA (MPI instead), but when one of my horses recently appeared subjectively to have ulcers (no scope) my vet gave me a tube of unbuffered / uncoated...

    Don't mean to hijack, but I'd love to have a omeprazole product that is designed to feed through. The ones we can get here are all fairly small dose (5 - 10 mls).I always feel that with a dose that...

    Some of the temperatures you are posting are beyond our ability to understand here. Down south (where it is colder) cold winter temperatures are -70 C, here, further north, a cold temp is 00 C....

    If you think you will enjoy this film, try reading "Straight from the horse's ass" by Lee Hughes. It's hilarious and scary and moving and a really good read.

    I've watched this thread and haven't given any advice so far, because so often the OP doesn't come back, but Wish, you do sound as if you are trying to try at least. Would you be allowed to take...

    Well, actually and "environment where horses don't spook" might be quite nice when I am beginning work with a young horse. It would get pretty boring fairly quickly though. Imagine having to remove...
