    Yes, they are stabled. This barn does not have 100 (42 stall barn) but when I worked at the TB farms, we had SEVERAL HUNDRED horses on the farms and still were able to bring everyone in and weigh...

    I just wanted to update regarding checking BCS and looking over horses.

    Today we had our equine nutrition sales rep out, like we do once a month. They bring their scale with them and we take...

    Lovely. They didn't even look at majority of the horses on the farm - "Looks good from distance" does not suffice. EVERY SINGLE HORSE ON THE FARM should have been pulled OUT of the field to be seen...

    Perhaps it depends on someones immune system? I just know I've never had it again after that cat experience - and I worked with a whole herd of weanling TBs that had it (fillies in the same field so...

    Honestly, just blot straight Iodine on the spot 1X a day for 2 days (fully saturating the spot and a little bit around it). It will kill the ringworm. Will take a little while for the hair to grow...

    I will tell you that a horse does not have to be overweight to have insulin resistance. I have one pony at the barn right now who is insulin resistant and she is actually thin and a bit ribby even. ...

    Well it is a catch-22 because honestly, being out in the cold snow is probably good for her hooves... maybe try slathering the sole with Vaseline/petroleum jelly?

    I third the Ivory dishsoap. Never had it leave a residue though - I actually found that it cuts through the grease and grim left from sweating, dirty horses really well. Always used it on halters...

    A lot of vets now recommend having a fecal done and then deworming according to that. Worms are becoming resistant to current dewormers and on top of that, most people are OVER deworming horses. ...

    Plus, some test mares are also nurse mares... and the foals are never stamped with a "By SoAndSo" - they are just a Draft/TB cross or what not, the sire is often "unknown" to the public. Same goes...

    ANY animal that is attacking domestic animals or livestock needs to be shot. Regardless of breed. Honestly, this woman didn't even need to bring a breed into it. It is a wild pack of dogs. No...

    I have to agree with ReSomething... the horse is just going to lay in poop, pee, and mud... blankets never stay clean for long and honestly, I'd rather something that is a color that still looks...

    Calphormin or OCD pellets. Both great for proper bone growth.

    Also, maybe ask if an Aspirin/Isoxuprine regime might help. We would do that regime on weanlings and short yearlings that showed OCD...

    Won't hurt to try and see if it helps her on days where she is extra stiff. I've done it for horses & dogs.

    Be careful changing too many things at once... that won't help you figure out what is causing the issues any easier. You should change 1 thing, wait a while and see if there is any change or not,...

    Another vote for cattle tags! And the dry erase board with the fields and horses names is always a good thing so that everyone knows who goes where.

    Knees are hard joints for chip removal and typically require more stall rest than fetlocks and hocks. You are lucky they recommended small turnout after the stall rest... most recommend hand walking...

    Lynnwood,

    I unfortunately think no one has a clue that works or volunteers there. The answers are different enough but all point to the same issues. The only thing they all seem to agree on is...

    Fairfax,

    If you have looked at the photos provided, do you consider those horses to be in good flesh, a bit thin, or emaciated?

    Max has been there 4 or 5 months now and pictures taken over...
