    I am still reeling, in a good way, from discovering the reason I have never had a bra that fit until now. I did not know there was such a thing as my size, because it was not sold in any of the...

    Osphos Results Update

    An update for anyone interested. The Osphos administration went smoothly, with no side-effects. I camped out at the barn and watched closely, and he was fine.

    That was eight weeks ago, and we...

    Glad no one here had Barrett's Esophagus, or worse. Hoping that's actually a rare thing, especially with so few risk factors. And hoping that maybe it is h pylori and gone after a round of...

    It is very helpful to hear others tell their stories. The only risk factor I have is older age (62, and still riding strong). Looking back I'm pretty sure it's been going on for quite a few years,...

    I'll use Kirk's Castile to clean if the leather is dirty. Then, if the leather is dry, I use pure neatsfoot oil and allow it to sink in. As a final step, I use a slick of glycerine bar (love...

    Staying hydrated is key. If it's really bad try ice chips only until you can tolerate something more. Weak ginger tea helps too. Hope you feel better soon. Stomach viruses are the worst.

    I've finally made the decision to give my navicular horse Osphos, but I'm nervous about the potential side effect of colic in the hours after it is injected. For those with experience giving Osphos,...

    I fixed this problem once by cantering along a hillside, perpendicular to the slope, with the right side on the downside, so that my horse had to use her right lead to avoid falling down. It only...

    I found a new Collegiate Alumni for $600 and added a Thinline Trifecta pad with wither shims. This has served very well for several years, horse is happy and I have no desire for anything fancier.

    I've been following JB's instructions for a couple of years with excellent results. FECs all come back negative, and I only worm with Quest Plus in the spring and Equimax in the fall.
