    So you did notice a weight loss when muzzling only for 12 hours?

    I've used the Weaver Leather brand and Tough 1 brand - the combo ones with the halter included. I want to try the new Tough 1 Easy Breathe muzzle, it's gotten good reviews.

    Aren't ulcery horses supposed to NEVER have an empty stomach? And wouldn't you have to withhold all hay/grass for hours before the dose to actually have an empty stomach?

    I know only a tiny bit...

    I use and swear by flax. My mare gets hives, and her belly near her udders gets raw and bleeding without it. Also using a fly sheet/fly mask can also help.

    Not true. The vaccine for strangles isn't 100% effective and horses who are vaccinated can still get strangles.

    I know it's not what you're asking about, but have you tried adding flax into the diet? My mare gets hives too, and the flax has minimized it moreso than the fly sheet did.

    Jingles for your boy, hope the vet can figure it out and it's something relatively easy to fix.

    Until the vet comes out, I've heard some people will treat with a handful of tums twice a day, or...

    The last time my mare wore a muzzle, it was because the barn I was at weaned them onto grass too fast. So I used the muzzle to make it safer. The first day on grass they were out for 2 hours, my...

    Thanks for the input everyone! I've read articles that the muzzles reduce their intake anywhere between 30% and 80%. I don't know if it just depends on how skilled the horse is at the muzzle?

    My...

    Thanks for the info! Yes, I will be the first to admit - I've done every other month deworming for the past 15+ years and it's a hard habit to break... I still remember my horses being dewormed via...

    Schedule for grazing muzzle?

    My mare is starting to get borderline plump - she goes out on an 8 acre pasture daily from 2 PM to 7ish AM. So about 17 hours. From 7 AM to 2 PM, she's in a stall with an attached run, with half a...

    Yes, mine are stalled with individual runs - then have a dry lot and grass pasture they get turned out onto with the 10 other boarder horses. The turnover rate at my barn is very low, so it's the...

    I second the suggestion of standing wraps each time the horse has to be stalled for extended periods.

    It may be a silly question, but is pasture board an option? If stalling is the issue, maybe...

    I dewormed in February. Maybe I'll do another fecal before fall just to make myself feel better! :lol:

    If all you're wanting to do is just add more fat to the diet for additional shine, you can always just add some veggie or canola oil. Cheap, easy, and doesn't mess with their currently balanced diet.
  18. Fecal test negative - vet says don't deworm until fall, after another test?

    I know it's very old school and outdated, but I've always been the type to deworm every other month, rotating what dewormer I've used. It's always worked for me, but I know current information says...

    First thing I thought when I saw the picture was "a horse is going to beat the heck out of that washer/dryer set", and that's before I read the rest of your post.

    I usually use Calf Manna to hide medicine or appease a horse who doesn't want to finish their meal. It smells pretty strong and a few handfuls goes a long way.

    Does he get electrolytes when he's not stalled too? I wonder if the electrolytes are causing it.
