    Here's one I heard recently, "I want to buy a girl horse so she can have a baby horse, and we can learn together."

    I use the injectable glucosamine for my gelding. He went from dragging his toes, swapping back leads at the canter, and slight bucking on a canter depart, to his beautiful, fluid canter. It has made...

    Chicken baby food, and make sure onion is not one of the ingredients. When my older kitties would stop eating, I'd take about a tablespoon of the baby food, mix a little water in it for hydration,...

    It's not really rocket science. If she's not gaining weight, she needs more calories (ruling out any medical issue). The vitamin supplement is not adding calories, so I'd stop those and up her...

    Is she getting any hay, just pasture? If you're feeding hay, make sure it's soaked. If she's on 24-hour pasture, she's probably getting a lot of moisture from the grass. My horses water consumption...

    Will she eat maple syrup on her feed? I used it successfully in the past with picky eaters. Sometimes you have to experiment to see what flavor they like. One likes applesauce but won't touch...

    I love the "busy buffet" nets. Quite a bit cheaper than the nibblenets, but just as durable. Mine have lasted 5+ years.

    Yeah, forcing horse to stand under trees during a thunderstorm would be a deal-breaker to me.

    Yes, I realize the risk of lightning can't really be controlled in a pasture board situation, but I...

    I'm an experienced rider, but I won't wear spurs. At 5' tall, it is very difficult for me to keep the spurs off the horse's side. After a bad wreck on a mare that let me know in no uncertain terms...

    Definitely find out what grows locally. Alfalfa mix is generally amazing hay as others have stated. I've found that often hay mixed with fescue may be better suited to cattle as some horses don't...

    Well, I live in Oklahoma, and pay 7.00 per bale for Bermuda hay out of the field, which is about the cheapest I've found for good quality hay. There is a huge swing in quality because ranchers will...

    Yep, you're right; I've never seen a horse before. And I don't have halters growing into my horses' heads, either.

    Sorry, but if you want piece of mind, you should consult a vet, not come to the internet. Of course you're going to be told to take him to a vet if he's lame. What other advise would you expect, when...

    I wonder why the halter was left on a pastured horse, if they were able to adjust it?

    No No No to injecting. I also nearly lost a horse back in the '80s when it became the thing to do.

    You can give the injectable orally, however, but doubtful that it would do anything for ticks.

    I live in Oklahoma, and once US Rider called to followup on an incident to make sure it was handled to my satisfaction. The customer service person was in London, Ontario.

    I left a boarding situation largely because of other boarders feeding treats to my horse. This horse would behave agressively when fed treats, and even though I had signs posted all over her stall to...

    If your stalls aren't matted, I think I'd tell the owner that she needs to pay for mats for the stall. That way you could use only enough bedding to soak up urine and stall cleaning would be easier.

    I would go to some basic dressage on this horse. He is very hollow, which could be from pain, but in his case I don't think so. He needs to learn to lower his head without a martingale. In your...

    Ok, flame suit on here, but this is the problem I have with many rescue organizations. This poor animal has to be in agony. In my opinion, FWIW, he needs to be humanely euthanized, not saved at all...

    I second the busy buffet from busyhorse.com. Less expensive than the nibble net, and seem to last a long time. I just replaced mine after 6 years, but I could have had the stitching replaced and the...
