    Whole flax will last a long time--I never had any issues with spoilage and I bought it in 50 lb bags, living in a humid climate. It's once it's ground that it needs to be stabilized or will ferment.

    Yup, TC Omega Max. IDK where it originates, but it's lovely stuff and won't go bad if you use it in a normal amount of time and store properly.

    Same here, except one of mine eats in the kitchen, one in the bathroom and one in the bedroom. Didn't take them long to learn to finish their meals or risk someone else finishing it later.

    I spent a long time walking before doing any trot work at all after my horse strained his stifle. First in hand, and later under saddle. We were lucky to have a cross-country course on the property...

    OP, I am sorry for your loss. I think you made the right decision, to let him go while he still had a relatively comfortable life. I let my old boy (28) go a year ago now, and I miss him every day,...

    I love Actiflex, personally. It has the highest HA level per ounce of any comparable product I've found and the price is very reasonable--$99/gallon which lasts 128 days. There's a horse and a dog...

    Of course there are varying qualities of wet food. Pate styles are best because sauces and gravies are too high in carbs.

    You don't need to make the 22 pounds of hay last 24 hours. If you break it up into four feeding spaced apart, he'll be fine. Most horses finish their hay well before the night is over and they are...

    What you describe is a classic reaction from hock arthritis-the toe dragging can also be, though stifle is a more common cause of that. If your mare is equally sore in both hocks, she might not...

    You can get a small food scale at just about any kitchen or department store for cheap, and you will find it invaluable in the barn! I consider a scale a standard feed room tool, along with a cheap...

    IF she's not eating 2% of her body weight in hay, that needs to be substituted with something else, and 12 pounds of senior may not be enough, though it seems like a lot. I agree with Triple Crown...
