    My licky mare is an alpha.

    I think my horse licks to show affection. She is so insistent on licking my hands when we start grooming that I have to pull my gloves off and let her lick before she'll let me get on with business,...

    I only recently go the message of "do nothing," although it's a deceptive "do nothing" because you are responsible for yourself -- keeping your core strong and keeping our balance, both of which are...

    Is she at all rideable? Some horses just like to have a job. Can you donate her to a therapeutic riding place? or get on her sometimes if you move her closer? just some thoughts. I don't discount the...

    I have had tremendous results with a combination of SmartPak joint sups and Flex Force -- 100 mg of HA every day. I've been able to stop giving Adequan entirely and haven't had to inject hocks in two...

    I think tail rubbing looks the same to us, but is actually caused by a variety of different things, which is why some things work in some cases and not in others. My mare rubs her tail from April to...
