    I ride in a skirt, an actual skirt not a split skirt. I'm looking into split skirts but I get by just fine in a pair of tights with a calf length skirt. The skirt does have to be pretty full with a...

    My mare prefers a big fat hollow mouth single jointed snaffle. It's a weird choice that I never would've picked. Just goes to show every horse is an individual and you've got to play the guessing...

    My barn has two troughs under downspouts. Horses much prefer those troughs over the other one that is filled by the pump. They get pretty regularly flushed out when it pours rain and they overflow...

    No suggestions as I don't know much about Navicular. She's super cute though. Hope it turns out being something easily fixed like a change in hoof trim.

    I like Weaver Leather brand muzzle. Has a leather crown to break away. The Tough 1 brand is good too, it has Velcro that will come undone in an emergency.

    How to calculate NSC on feed I mix?

    This is probably a stupid question! How do I figure out the NSC for the feed I mix on my own? It's 50% Omolene 400 and 50% Standlee Alfalfa pellets.

    NSC of Omolene 400 is 20.
    NSC of Standlee...

    DIY Leg straps?

    Anyone make their own leg straps for blankets? Between blanketing my two horses, and the young mare always breaking straps (who knows how!), I'm tired of spending $$$ on new straps. Seems like I...

    My young mare I'm not sure if she has PSSM or not but she has had a few tying up episodes. I put her on low NSC diet and blanket her much more heavily than I normally would. The blanketing alone...

    My young mare was gnawing on wood and eating weird things. I added a vit/min supplement and she stopped. May try adding a vit/min supplement. :)

    I'm thinking about trying straw bedding in my girls' stalls. They are in-and-out stalls with attached runs, the stalls are matted. When it's really nasty cold, the run doors are closed and so...

    I used to use a similar concoction. Third pine sol, third white vinegar, third water. It worked okay. I never had any issues using it on the horse itself. You do have to get the pine sol with actual...
