    Have you tried the Dare collar? I had a horse boarded with me for about a year. He would even try cribbing on the electric fence. With this collar, he did not crib at all.

    I don't think what you are experiencing is at all unusual; more like it is very common among riding moms. Years ago (kids are now in their 20s) a group of riding moms at the barn I boarded at had a...

    How old is he? It seemed like one of mine went through a phase of one problem after another for several years when he was around 8 to 10. He is a common sense guy and who knows why we had the rough...

    Any chance he is starting to get small rubs/soars on the front of his fetlocks? If so, don't rule out narcolepsy. Initial signs are subtle and irregular. Eventually if you are observant, you'll...
