    When my filly was younger she used to fling her grain, she was also a rescue so couldn't affod to lose the feed either. I used a muck bucket, and hung it by using bucket straps clipped to the...

    I used to work at Home Depot with a similar policy, and this was the exact reasoning from management. They'd rather lose the few dollars, and have a repeat customer.

    Bute can be a real pain to get a horse to eat - I could see why these would be handy, being encapsulated. Even flavored bute powder is a no-go with my mares.

    Also, the little sachets are handy -...

    Ouch, that stinks OP! Since the BO is probably not holding up their part of the boarding contract (feeding twice daily, cleaning stalls, whatever), I'd say no notice is required. I'd tell BO ASAP...

    How about a sidepull with a rope nose? The rope makes it just slightly stronger than a halter.

    6 AM and 2 PM is when the barn feeds, then I go out usually between 6-8 PM and give my girls a small, extra meal.

    I've never found wiping it on to be as effective - it always seems to get wasted staying on the rag/sponge/whatever than actually getting on the horse.

    Hm.... I didn't think of that. My mane/tail stuff is an aerosol. I'll have to put some water in a spray bottle or something and see if she sneezes.

    No hives, luckily. My other mare is the one who gets hives if I use most store bought fly sprays. :rolleyes:

    It was diluted by about 50% with water at the start of the season when the flies...

    I'm actually not very happy with the Kensington boots I'm using now - BUT they're the "natural" line, the ones that are horsey-colored and have no fleece. My mare ripped off the straps of 2 pairs...
  11. Mare sneezing repeatedly during fly spray?

    My palomino mare hates fly spray - and I'm beginning to think she's mildly allergic to it or something? :confused: Every single time I fly spray her, without fail, she sneezes repeatedly until I'm...

    I work in a call center and don't feel sorry for him even a little bit. I've talked to debt collectors that were less aggressive than that guy!

    All the local farmers around here just charge per bale. I agree that it's buyer beware.

    I bet you a million dollars the mare's in foal from her son. :no:

    My mare's been on and off MSM for years, and she has a very sensitive stomach. I've never had her colic from the MSM.

    Has his environment/diet changed at all? Has the weather been crazy?

    24/7, but now that my mares have stalls with good-sized runs attached (they can both canter at least 2-3 strides in them) when they have to stay in they really don't seem bothered at all. They are...

    The downside is there's no relief from bugs with trees. Often times horses will hang out in a shelter to get away from the flies, not neccessarily the heat.

    As much turnout as possible (24/7 is ideal!), and probably make sure to really avoid him getting overweight as that's just extra pounds on little feet.

    I'd betcha a million dollars he hasn't been wormed properly. Have the vet do a fecal, and go from there. :)

    There used to be a whole pack of coyotes living in the pasture my mare lived in. I'm in IL, and coyotes are very rarely larger than a fox around here. They never bothered the horses, and there was...

    That's what I'm thinking. Big round belly but otherwise not looking well often means worms.

    Yup, Thryo-L can make them crazier than a loon if the dosage isn't just right. I'd have the vet check her levels, sounds like she may be getting too much.
