    I assume he's been tested for Cushing's as well? Because you can have Cushing's without IR, IR without Cushing's, or both Cushing's AND IR. If he also has Cushing's, the laminitis won't be...

    My gelding's only real symptom was unexplained laminitis in the fall of 2012. We tested him for Cushing's at the time, but the numbers came back low. We re-tested him in the fall of 2013 and it...

    The best thing I have ever used for thrush is the cow mastitis medication. I can't remember if you're supposed to use the "wet" or "dry" although a quick google search will tell you. It's cheap,...

    In my case, neither the vet nor farrier wanted to go to shoes because my gelding had always been barefoot with no trouble regardless of footing, had very thick soles (as seen on x-ray), and nobody...

    I'm very fond of HorseTech's High Point grass supplement. It covers just about everything and does not have added iron. I get by with a half dose for both horses. It's very economical and shipping...

    Definitely test for Cushing's and IR. If he has either of those conditions, the laminitis won't go away without addressing those first.

    My gelding developed laminitis from Cushing's (his only...

    I didn't watch the video and haven't made it through all the comments yet, but there are varying degrees of "vegetarian" and "vegan."

    I'm a vegetarian. I don't eat meat but I eat eggs (if I...

    Pantene conditioner for manes and tails.

    And sometimes I buy fancy horse cookies with soft centers to hide pergolide and previcox, and sometimes I just use fig newtons :)

    I read somewhere that you can use something small like a yogurt container to pour the water for rinsing, rather than trying to use the hose. I haven't tried it, but it makes sense.

    Expensive, but the Porta-Grazers work very well in a stall.

    My horses have been using the Nibble Nets for about a month so far and they are holding up well. They are hung inside their run in shelter so they are getting some exposure to weather. My mare can...

    As long as it's overcast and 60 degrees, the sheet is probably fine. Mine sometimes feel warm, but never sweaty. Leaving them on at that temp isn't my preference, but if we're in between storms and...

    Loss of top line can be a very early symptom of Cushing's. It couldn't hurt to get him tested although it could be SO early it might not show up. My gelding started with a loss of top line,...

    It sounds like going to more turnout is the reason the pain was lessened, not because you stopped the Previcox. Why not see how he is with 24/7 turnout AND the Previcox? Or try Adequan?

    I've soaked pellets for both horses ever since my gelding had a minor choke shortly after I got him. I've learned that some brands soak much faster and to a better consistency than others. Most...

    How big of a pan is needed? They do sell this, which I think is really designed to avoid sand colic, but could work in the corner of a stall as well.

    I'd look at Dixon/Vacaville/Fairfield but it would be a substantial commute. Lots of horse properties though and boarding available.

    Sacramento area. Covered arena, large outdoor, and round pen. Most of the horses are fed out of slow feeders. Hay AM and PM and owner-provided lunch (i.e., pre-bagged "grain" or pelleted feed with...

    I wish I had thought to take a picture when I came off a lesson horse a few years ago :) It was my first fall and I only had time to think "hands up" so I wouldn't break my wrists. I'm told I did...

    I second the Nicker Bait pill camos. You can get a good-sized pill inside them, even a Bute tablet if you break it in half.

    If the pill is very small, stuff it inside a fig newton :)

    A couple of the stalled horses at my barn had this issue and the upside down bell boots seemed to resolve it.

    Mine get hocks sores in their paddock. I use Bickmore's Gall Salve to help...

    How old is your horse:

    I did the loading dose on my mare (7 doses over 28 days) followed by monthly injections. She's been on it for close to a year now. I put her on it for minor hock arthritis (vet's recommendation),...

    My barn uses the Porta-Grazers, which are awesome (I love them), but aren't really designed to be secured. My horses are in a paddock with shelter, and the feeders don't want to traipse through the...
