    Actually I think I can keep the alfalfa - I was worried my alf had a higher NSC than the beet I get, but could have been wrong.

    Is it only England you want to know about, or Wales, Scotland and N Ireland too?

    (just kidding - people who live in the UK detest having it referred to as England. Unless that was what you meant)...

    Go to the track and see how they do it - here at least hay nets are hung high in the stall door to one side so horses snack away as they watch the world go by. The horses also WORK which is a great...

    When you grow up in Europe, Anerican trailers and trucks seem like using a 9# hammer to kill a mosquito! ;) But there you go - perspective. When you live with smaller, more thoughtfully designed...

    I went back an read your prev post and looks like it was a "small tool trailer" and a 4Runner that skidded on ice? Anyway nothing to do with Brenderups. How heavy was the trailer and contents?...

    I have a V8 4Runner that I tow a Brenderup Baron TC with. As you say it pulls 7000# and I've hauled a large horse from the Oregon border to the SF bay area with no problems, and many other trips....

    Teaching to ground tie will be fun - he's a keen student of clicker training :) I do think being tied is a mental thing - he thinks he can't freely escape if his feet feel unsteady, which panics him,...

    JB I've been holding him in a grassy area to eat his supps but not ideal to have a horse who can't stand on concrete where the tie rails are to eat/groom/tack up.

    Yes. My gelding lost sight in his eye aged about 13, competed just fine with vision in one eye, retired at 15 and the eyeball lost size with the same issue you are having. Periodically he'd get...

  18. Horse unsteady on concrete. Ugh. UPDATE in OP

    My 3.5 yr old WB acts very unsteady on concrete. Gets that Bambi on ice splayed out stance which makes his feet slip more. Only when tied, only on concrete. Not all the time.

    I've got the vet...

    Maybe I missed something but it wouldn't be that hard to make a smartphone app to record WTC and jumps. There are already plenty free ones that'll beep to tell you when to change gait for rehab (aka...

    At 4.5 pounds per day, your 50 pound bag of feed should be lasting 11+ days. Someone's either feeding him more, or stealing your grain.
