    Best Friend makes neon yellow fabric pieces that velcro on to the top of the basket part of the muzzle. They both reduce rubs and make the muzzle easier to spot in the pasture. Win, win situation and...

    While I agree (for the reasons JB mentioed) that feeding cubes is not ideal when hay is available, hay cubes do not need to be soaked for horses with normal teeth who do not bolt their feed. All of...

    Endophyte infected fescue *can* cause abortions, but that is a much less common symptom of fescue toxicity than prolonged gestation, red bag deliveries, and agalactia. While the endophyte is present...

    And that line of thinking is no more accurate than the "chestnut = hot" stereotype. ;)

    Agreed. It looked like a "come to Jesus" session to me. Sometimes those aren't pretty, and sometimes they have to take place in public - clever horses are more than capable of learning the difference...

    I can't help you on length (I also have a 27" inseam, so I feel your pain), but you can probably find someone to cut down the fenders you already have. You'll essentially get custom fenders then. I...

    The mare's ultimate career will be broodmare, but I'd like to show her a little in the ranch pleasure classes that AHA shows are adding; we may dabble in some western dressage as well.

    Thanks for...

    Do you have a QH? Because it has been my scientific experience that, for breeds other than the American Quarter Horse, weight tapes are very often inaccurate by a factor of 100 pounds or more/less.

    Exactly. IR and Cushings are two unrelated (but often correlated) disorders.

    Then you have misinterpreted the research. Please show me your references, because I can't find them.

    Yes. Somewhere between regular shavings and sawdust - not surprising, considering that the particle size of the "shavings" is somewhere between that of traditional shavings and sawdust. Finer...

    You really have to test individual batches of hay to be certain of what is safe, when you are dealing with an IR horse. Luckily for me, my Cushingoid guy is *not* technically IR yet, so I have more...

    Weight tapes are ridiculously unreliable. Put him on an actual scale for an accurate measurement of his current body weight.

    Like I posted before, I feed coastal bermudagrass (I live in south AL), supplemented by alfalfa for my old guy. He has done very well on this program - so far.

    He's great. And full. He was my plan for my mare, but that didn't work out, sadly, so I'm looking for Plan B. :/

    Agreed. For my old guy (22 this year), who has never handled cold well and now loses weight rapidly in cold weather, I will put a sheet on if it is raining steadily and below 60. He wears a midweight...

    Honestly? With my older(er) - 22 this year - Cushingoid guy, I've had to resort to the "whatever he's willing to eat" feeding program. Luckily, he's relatively happy with Triple Crown Senior (<12%...

    This. Whether she "hates" other horses or not, she has to learn to get over it and do her job. My old gelding always preferred the company of humans to that of horses. To this day, he's only happy...

    I have Arabs, and I finally just gave up and settled on polos. I can trim them to whatever length I want, and they always fit.

    Haha. I'm learning that! I've only been down here since July. :) I'm in Auburn. Anywhere within a 2-ish hour drive would be do-able.
  22. Looking For Trainer in Southeast AL/West GA

    Any suggestions?

    I have an 8 year old Arab mare who is in need of a tune-up and some finishing. She is a little more than green broke but has been standing in a field for several years. I'm...

    This is the point I'm at, too. Montana is perfectly content living out 24/7 and has no trouble at all getting up and down or walking around the pasture. He gallops around and bucks on a regular...

    Great feedback, everyone! I'm sitting back and taking all the input in. My personal definition is still evolving, and this helps quite a bit.

    I did serum testing with my guy years ago when he was first diagnosed with RAO. He was not on any allergy meds at the time - your vet will probably have you discontinue meds prior to testing, for...
