    Spoke with my Vet and the tests for Lyme, Cushing's, and a general Chem/CBC panel were all pretty normal, except, my mare is a bit Anemic.

    I had forgotten that she was tested for I.R. back...

    I use "Camp Dry" on all my blankets and sheets. You can find it the cheapest at Walmart. I wash them first and hang dry.

    I feel your pain.... :no: I keep a fly sheet on my mare from spring until it is time for a light sheet. She needs the fly sheet anyway, as the bugs drive her crazy.

    After grooming I...

    I called my Vet and she is coming out next Tuesday.

    Again, this was a pony who stayed plump on a handful of grain. So, we'll see....

    Thanks for all the ideas and different grain suggestions.

    I mentioned a Solar Tank to the OP, as I had bought a 25 gallon tank last winter.

    It's probably the easiest solution if she goes to the barn a few days a week. Then she can top it off and not...

    Don't forget, she said her horse likes to dunk his hay, which is a good thing.

    So it doesn't matter how many hours other horses can go without water for.

    Hi C/C, Thanks for the information. No new place yet.. :( I'll send you message...



    Do you soak the pelleted hay or feed it as is? No problems with "Choke" ?

    Years ago when horse searching, I looked at a horse in the North East. It was a private backyard barn, maybe 10 horses? All belonged to the property owner.

    All horses stayed in their stalls at...

    Thanks. I didn't realize that Magnesium could cause the weight to come off. She has been on SmartPak IR Control for approx. 2 years??? Although I discontinued it just very recently, as the...

    Agree. I've had barn owners who were rather blaise regarding water. Not until someone has to deal with impaction colic due to lack of water, do they realize that something as simple as water could...

    I bought the 25 gallon tank for my mare last year. Kind of costly, but plan to use it for years to come. Lack of available water is non-negotiable for...

    Wanted to add: The picture in my signature link is several years old. Does she appear to be too heavy in the pic? Thank you.

    Thank you everyone for the information.

    Basically, here is the problem. I posted a similar question about a month ago.

    Thank you for supplying the links. Definitely will read.
  15. Update: Low Starch, Low Carbs, sugar , etc. Grain Question.

    Back in the olden days we fed Sweet Feed. Period.

    Now it seems so confusing with the large variety of grains for this and that.

    Have a question that should be obvious to me, but want to double...

    Another vote for "Dawn". I use it on my mare for after ride baths too.

    Glad to hear he is doing better. :) Yep, mask on 24/7 IMO.
  18. Thank you!!!

    Thank you!!!

    It's a powder? My mare isn't crazy about powder supplements either. I didn't think to ask, and I already called my Feed Store this morning to order "Omegatin". Yes, the Customer Service Reps....

    Agree. I used to own a chronic Cribber (never again), who also colicked constantly. He had a 15-20 acre pasture and still stood at the fence cribbing. It was along time ago, but I'd say he colicked...

    Jacqui, as you know Twink also has one eye, and I certainly know how you feel about protecting the remaining eye.

    We've had good luck since the surgery, but even prior with her Uveitis; anything...

    Forgot to say she is a stocky 13.1 h POA. Very easy keeper. She is/was on Min-A-Vite Lite and she lost a lot of weight while on it.

    So we are gradually switching her over to Carb-Guard and wanted...

    Has anyone tried Blue Seal "Winning Touch Equine Supplements"?

    My mare gets very little grain, and I'm looking for a vitamin supplement. Smartpak has them, but Blue Seal sells in a 40 lb bag...

    I do mine at home with a top loading machine. I run them through twice and hang dry. Take off what leg straps you can and wash them separately, or in an old pillow case.

    After they are...
  25. Are there good links to watch the Cross Country or Endurance Riding portion?

    My cable company, Comcast, showed about 30 seconds of "Cross Country" and a glimpse of "Endurance Riding", my favorites. :(

    Are there any good, clear links to the Cross Country segment and...
