    We have well water, which I know is high in iron. I hadn't considered using distilled-only for the cats - will have to research that.

    I wonder just how much cranberry is in the Wellness though?

    Right, she's not going to get a saddle shipped from the US anywhere. But at least starting with TM can help get some idea of what saddles to look for down there. The issue seem to be a real lack of...

    Best cost-effective longe caveson

    I think I'd like to get a proper longe caveson, but, as it won't be used extensively, I don't want to pay a lot. Ideally I'd find a great quality one that's well used.

    I know there are...

    Yes, I don't think it's really understood why alf is a problem for some IR horses, only that it is, and glucose may be the culprit, despite generally being lower in NSC

    The deal with alfalfa isn't about the calories. It's about the sugar and insulin response from what's in alf, more specifically, the glucose as a suspect. It's not a problem for all IR horses, but...
  13. Grain-free wet cat food "guaranteed" to keep pH down

    So, I'm having a problem keeping pH high in a few cats here. It's not like I've been feeding crappy food. Boy cats have been getting all wet for, well, long enough. That keeps Boy Cat1 (BC1)...

    If he'll eat timothy pellets, try that. You could also try some TC Safe Starch Forage for a few cups as his mixer if that will work - might or might not depending on what supps you're using.
