    Thanks JB!

    I remember Deltawave saying she gave her horse Tums before every ride. I think it was between 6-8 Tums?

    Might be easier to do prior to riding.

    Nutrition gurus- I need some advice!

    I've had my TB for 4 years and had him at my own place for the past 3.5 years. He's a bit of a hard keeper, but I've been able to adjust his feed/supplements to keep him at a good weight at home.
