    It's so that you can tell they've already been spayed or neutered and don't have to catch them again or, in the case of the females, possibly subject them to another surgery just to discover it's...

    Years ago we had a stray that would come by once in a while. He showed up on our deck one day with a tail that was just a big necrotic mess.

    Took him into the vet, his tail was unable to be...

    I hope I'm wrong but I have to wonder if the family thinks they can make a quick couple of dollars off the horse by running him through an auction or selling him to another therapeutic program. ...

    Well, I guess not having to drive in what could be a horrible mess is one advantage of being laid off.

    If anybody gives you "looks" over what your (perfectly fine) saddle looks like then those aren't the kind of people you need to worry about anyway. I'm at the "eff you if you can't take a joke"...

    I've always had great luck with using dilute (maybe 1:9) betadine solution. Just put it on the affected area, make sure it gets down to the skin and just leave it. Make sure it dries before putting...

    You are correct. So it's about $4.50. I'd let it go myself but if someone needs to be reimbursed ask for $5.00 and call it a day.

    Unless my math is wrong, 2.2 lbs x 453.5 g/lb = 997 grams. Close to 1000 doses.

    $35.00 x 100 cents /dollar = 3,500 cents / 997 = 3.5 cents/dose x 12 doses = ~45 cents worth of bute.

    How much...

    I wonder what he means by "almost" available only from vets. You can find it everywhere.

    My horse had terrible feet, apparently caused by a sub-clinical case of white line disease. I treated him...

    If I were you I'd take the time you need to get the trailer to your mechanic, pay what it costs to fix it, then don't loan your trailer out to anyone.

    Should she have offered to pay part of the...

    RIP Ozzy. I'm so sorry you lost him, it does sound like he was well loved and happy during his time with you.

    We lost our ~12 year old orange tabby Rocky to the same thing several years ago. He...

    I admittedly didn't read each post carefully but is there any way you could find someone to half lease her or even just ride her on a regular basis? She might be much happier at a new place with an...

    Could you builder a taller, more solid mounting block? I wrecked my right knee a couple of years ago and I dismount onto a block or onto a "park bench" type bench. The bench actually works really...

    At the barn where I keep my horse the BO had a 25 year old who still wasn't ready to step down to the easier lessons. A kid had to be at the "advanced beginner" stage to ride him. He loved to jump...

    Just for the record, although I posted a thread about neighbors with skinny and getting worse ponies, I am not the OP. The neighbors have accepted help and the ponies are getting fed now.

    I was disappointed in a grazing muzzle I purchased this past summer. It was most definitely not the "Best Friends" muzzle pictured on the site. It was inferior in quality and far too small for my...

    It sounds like an interesting question but I'm not sure what sort of "key" you're looking for and what report you are referring to.

    If they're relatively small just wear them with boots. They'll fit right in with the current "equestrian chic" fashion. ;)

    As a 56 year old, very amateur, rider I would certainly be interested in this horse if I was looking right now. If I rode him, liked him, and he vetted clean in that hock I would be willing to pay...

    I just don't understand the reluctance of some physicians to run a Lyme test. It's not expensive relative to all the other tests they want to run and although it isn't 100% accurate it's certainly...

    Good luck with your search. I'm not sure exactly your height requirement but keep in mind that a horse with a well sprung rib cage can take up a lot of leg. I have a friend at the barn who is 5'10"...
