    I have done almost entirely cubes when hay was not available during the severe drought of 2011/2012. I literally drove 10 hours to bring back some absurdly expensive T&A that was iffy in quality...

    Oh, she did rotate in both fronts. It took them a month and a half to diagnose her with something other than EPM, but she did founder. Crappy vets here.

    The grass is not even close to short. Rye only grows in winter here, so it'll be dead by late spring. Her founder was likely due to IR, as it was a month after foaling (though she did require oxy...

    Muscovy ducks. We had a few in Florida. We had no fire ants the entire time we had them. Within a month of the ducks relocating, we had ants again.
  5. Rye grass for previously foundered mare?

    Our new place has the most beautiful lush grass, mostly rye with some other random things here and there. It used to be hay pasture, but has been neglected for over a decade.

    Mare is 25,...

    I may be thinking of another competitive trail organization. This was a few years ago. There is one that doesn't allow any boots aside from hoof boots.

    I think they're the organization that doesn't allow boots of any kind, except of course hoof boots. I was actually told that since my horse had an over stride and needed bell boots to ensure that he...

    I have a Luso/appendix mare who will be 8 this spring. She is still just green broke due to getting pregnant just after she turned 4. I'm just getting her going again after resolving some soundness...

    High sugar diet with free choice barley, mare down most of the time... Seems like there may be laminitis or founder? I didn't watch the video though. A high sugar diet like she is on is a recipe...

    I put out enough for a whole 24 hour period for my ancient, thin, slow eating mare. I put them in a big flat tub, cover with water, and let them sit. Ours aren't too hard now, but they have been in...

    I live in Louisiana, so we don't get much cold weather. My 25 yo mare has always been cold natured with little winter coat. She has had trouble keeping weight since the neighbors let their...

    Quite honestly, you're leasing this horse. He is not yours. If the owners are unwilling to get him the medical care he needs, I would move on. When will it end? Joint injections? Rehab for a...

    If I upgrade the phone, I'll also purchase one of the battery backups for it. I have a windows phone now that's super sketchy in more ways than just the GPS. As in a couple times a month, the...

    I've also considered getting a non sucky phone, which means canceling my contract in addition to buying a new phone. I'm worried I will end up with the same situation though, where the phone stops...

    I need technology here. Many of the rides do a horrendously poor job marking trails. I also ride the woods near my house, and many of the trails come out near roads but are pretty overgrown. Given...

    It's the 10. I don't think I can update any maps from what I have read online. He had a similar model many years ago for hunting, and he thought this would be comparable. I'm thinking it's not.

    GPS - stand alone, not smartphone

    For a few very important reasons, DH bought me a garmin etrex for Christmas. I've had some significant issues with using my phone in heavy cover, and cell coverage is spotty anyway. However, the...

    Oh, and I have never experienced anything remotely close to a narrow gullet on any I have seen. Two of mine were made at least 30 years ago. One was designed for a curvier back, the others for...

    Long high withers are unlikely to work with lauriche saddles. They tend to put the rider more forwards so the pommel doesn't extend back into the saddle as far, if that makes sense. I've owned 3...

    I live in rural LA where the care you describe is not uncommon. A good friend's mom runs the shelter here. I called her recently on a starving horse, and she said that in our parish AC legally...

    He is by Lasodo out of a Swedish WB. Also quite sweet. He broke his coffin bone I think in turnout as a very young horse. There is a full sister who has done a lot on the Arab circuit as a hunter....

    Lasodo is 15.3 and round. He's on the SNH payback list above. He is fantastically sweet, and he fox hunted in his younger days. He's in his 20s though. Most of his foals who have done much have...

    If he's truly digging at the sole, that is more likely the cause for soreness than the long toes being brought back.

    I love it! I have an elderly mare who was almost put down twice last winter, but who sorta refused to give in. This would be perfect for the tail chunk I saved.
