    Forced to his feet, loaded into a trailer and driven off somewhere to be shot. According to the owner anyway.

    I grew up in Bozeman and remember he had herds of broodmares and foals in several...

    I'm glad to hear things are working out with your guy. He sounds so much like my older TB, I hoped for the best. He evented quite a bit when he was younger. He also has shivers, and I find the best...

    Allergen blocking face mask?

    As per my allergy rant in Off Topic, I got to thinking about allergen blocking dust masks for doing barn chores. I've tried regular paper dust masks, and they do ok in the dust-stopping department,...

    Ugh, I've had both an allergy induced asthma attack and conjunctivitis from allergies in the last two weeks. I am living on Zyrtec, Benadryl, Nasacort and allergy eye drops. Not to mention an inhaler...

    WARNING: EXTREME SARCASM AHEAD!

    Whew, thank heaven and God that he didn't do that to his little brothers! Could you imagine how much brain-bleach they would have to use to cover that mess up?

    Perhaps some of the money donated can go to the surgical repair of the hernia? I don't think that is going to fix itself!

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Two shops for over a year now. I think I'm going to pick it up from where it's at now, take to the shop with a little more exposure and drop the price. It has been less...

    Does anyone have much experience with Alleged?...

    Does anyone have much experience with Alleged? I've only known one other person who had one, and she often described both of them as good eggs. Mine is by Alleged out of a Roberto mare, he's 21 now...

    Well, I'm glad I didn't waste money getting blood testing and just shotgunned it! So is the only way to test if a horse is deficient in magnesium to supplement it and see if there's an improvement? ...

    Just out of curiosity, is he really bothered by clipping or mane pulling? Dislikes intramuscular shots? I ask, as you could be describing aspects of my horse who I've had for 10 years. High dose Mg...

    Has he had any bloodwork done? I've learned that magnesium deficiency can crop up as muscle tension and soreness due to (correct me if I'm wrong) "misfiring" of nerves in the muscles.

    If he is getting at least 6# of Ultium a day, he should be getting the vitamins and minerals he needs. I agree he should be getting closer to 9 or 10# a day, split into three meals. There aren't many...

    Good stick!

    We had the sprinklers come on during a gymnastics jump lesson. The horses startled at first, but it was really hot and we were all happy to sit under the spray while we each waited our...

    I work at a store that sells a lot of Dubarry, so I've gotten to help folks many times where the fit is not quite perfect. It sounds like you'll be happier in the long run with the 40. I always...

    I have tried Dubarrys and I have the same problem with them I have with EVERY European sized shoe: I'm a U.S. 8-1/2 and it does not correlate with a Euro size. Period. Your best bet may be to try an...

    I know some parts of the country (cough, NoVA, cough), horses that sell for over 10k would probably cost a lot less in other areas. Regional inflation. Price of care and maintenance goes up but...

    I agree more questions need answers to really understand the situation:

    1) how long have you had the horse?

    2) is your child working with a trainer?

    3) did the horse's daily maintenance...

    Ditto to both: my guy is 21 years going on about 4 (mentally), and he really benefits from a 10-15 minute hack before working. If I can let him power trot up a hill while stretching over his back,...

    My warm-running TB was clipped last week when we had highs in the 80s. It is 40 right now, he's wearing an 80g fill with an unlined hood, and he is toasty warm under it. He also lives out 24/7.

    I've actually cut way back on saddle pads because my horse only likes one. It's a square pad with pockets that I put cut-to-fit Thinline pads in. I've tried other pads, even with a regular Thinline...

    Cargill has changed and dropped some Pennfield feeds due to overlap with Nutrena ones. A couple of the Pennfield feeds were better than Nutrena blends, so they've been rebranded into the Nutrena...
