    Well I did it... I bought my filly when she was just 10 days old. It was kind of an impulsive purchase (50th birthday present), and sure I have had some regrets over what it will cost me to get her...

    Any ideas for wrapping in a horse that is turned out almost 24/7? My mare has a tiny patch of scratches/mud fever on the back of her RH heel. It's the size of a nickel but she does have a little...
