    My vet and the vets at New Bolton always twitch and sedate. I've never had a back injection done so you could be right in that you need more sedative.

    Thanks JB! He was dewormed on May 9th and retested on July 11th so 8 weeks (I meant to do 12 but thought he was dewormed in late April). This is a new horse and came from not the cleanest farm. So...
  3. Fecal results 775 in May, 1050 now! Used Quest Plus. JB help!

    What the heck happened? Should I assume he wasn't dosed correctly (spit it all out?) He was at my trainers at the time. Vet recommends powerpack but does that make sense?

    You mean instead of curling up into a fetal position? I'll have to try that :lol:

    There was a vet at the practice I use that I felt was really bad about handling horses. She seemed to be intimidated by them--she was quite small and my horses were ~16.2 hand tbs. If she was on call...

    Kind of a strange pedigree on this Montana-bred. Don't see many familiar names. He's cute!

    Yes, when I switched the 205s to 225s, the last 205 to come off the trailer did not touch the ground!

    Where is your ring going to be? We usually turn our trailer around in the ring. (But it isn't fenced, so that could be an issue).

    I bought one when Rick's had everything 20% off during their tent sale last month. Sadly Tipperary is the only brand that seems to fit me so my choices are limited.

    I have XL via Broadstone too for my new horse. Haven't had to use it yet (knock on wood). They do have a minimum insured value of $7500. You can still insure if your horse is worth less, but you have...

    OMG, don't cook the peaches! If they are super yummy, just slice of the peaches, make a glaze by pureeing peaches, add sugar if necessary. Add to baked pie crust, add whip cream. Best pie ever!!

    For me I do not have much desire to compete recognized BN, just based on cost. Of course around here there are many starter trials within 1-2 hrs. Also, if one is concerned about the level of...

    I have both dressage and long fleece girths from SmartPak. I like the dressage girth better--the long girth is kind of flimsy. But I have one long one from Shires that is quite a bit nicer, and only...

    I have a greenie, we usually do 1-2 days of ringwork exclusively, mostly dressage and maybe a few jumps. Then we do ~2 days of just hacking/conditioning, sometimes with friends but mostly alone. One...

    I really like some of the 2012 geldings. If only I wasn't paying retirement board I would be tempted!

    I like them. Mine are made by Shire--they aren't super high quality but they are sturdy and comfortable. Much easier to adjust from the saddle than regular leathers.

    We have a mockingbird that likes to wake us up in the middle of the night. Very annoying. Although at more reasonable hours I really like listening to his song. You can often identify almost all the...

    No, my guys are more cerebral. They manage to find ways to pull gates off their hinges, or undo latches.

    Personally, based on your description, I wouldn't wait. So sorry--I know what a tough decision it is!

    This. I don't get the whole cowboy boot/wedding dress trend. To me it just looks like poor fashion sense (because I'm such a fashionista lol!) Gorgeous dress though.

    Maybe try grazing muzzles every other night? Or use them all the time and make the holes bigger? How large is the paddock? My two guys are out all night on about 1.5 acres (+ 1/2 acre sacrifice...
