    I give my guys Pentosan regularly. I think a big part of the trick is to be very nonchalant yourself about it. No fuss. I start grooming -- brushing their neck then quietly do the injection. They...

    I ship my two guys from Western NY down to Central Florida for the winter season. Last year they didn't ship until after Tgiving so I had them clipped before we left -- in early November. Then...

    Dallas Morgan at Morgan Equine just outside of Ithaca is an excellent farrier! I doubt he would travel as far as Oneonta/Cooperstown but you can trailer in to their clinic (his wife is a vet). ...

    Thanks for the input -- I'll start a few days before they're scheduled to ship. Of course I won't know the exact pickup date until a day or so ahead of time so they'll probably be on it for a week...
  5. How far in advance of shipping to start UlcerGard?

    I'll be shipping my two geldings down to Florida in a few weeks for the winter -- they go with BrookLedge. They've done the trip a few times before but last spring one of my guys did turn up with an...

    Agree with other posters that recommend using a large uncovered litter box. I think the general "rule" re multiple cats and litter boxes is that you should have as many boxes as you have cats. That...

    For a standard 2H GN trailer I don't think you need a "long bed" Tundra. I have a standard bed Tundra with my FL GN and it works fine. I can do sharp turns no problem.

    Do your homework and check out the tongue weight of the trailer as the payload will be the limiting factor. Before I bought my FL 2H GN (I tow with a 5.7L V8 Regular Cab Tundra) I spoke with...

    I just ordered (came today) a Pacific Rim pad with gel foam inserts. I had borrowed one from a friend and found it worked well. I have a similar saddle fit situation with one of my geldings -- he's...

    I've used BrookLedge 4 times to transport my two geldings from Western NY to Central Florida and vice versa. Their "standard" practice at least in my experience is to agree on a one week "shipping...

    I just shipped two horses from Central Florida to Western New York state -- so about 1,100 miles -- in stall and a half and it was $2,500 for both of them. I use BrookLedge.

    Coolest fly sheet?

    My two geldings will be turned out in the mornings all summer in Western NY. I'm looking for a fly sheet that will help the with bugs but not make them hotter since they are in an open pasture with...

    Another vote for a Trailer Aid and importantly a lug wrench that fits your trailer tire lug nuts --- note they will most likely be a different size than your truck tires!!!

    This was my second winter in Central Florida and my Hanoverian gelding went through a spell of hives --- which we think was caused by "stinging nettles" (what they call them down here -- small weeds...

    I have a 2009 Tundra (5.7 V8 4WD with tow package) that we bought lightly used in 2010 and use it to tow a Featherlite aluminum 2 horse gooseneck. Love my Tundra! It handles the hills of Western NY...

    I'd probably take the horse back and be done with it, although you might want to get permission to speak with the vet who did the workup to be sure there isn't something going on that you should know...

    I have two geldings -- I can free lunge one and it works well. He stays calm, pays attention to me, and its a good way of giving him a light workout on days I don't ride. My other guy turns into a...

    I HATE Paypal. I used it just once after a long hiatus a few weeks ago and then promptly had a fraudulent charge to my credit card through Paypal. I challenged it and eventually they credited my...

    A Friesian gelding I had a few years ago had one of his front splint bones removed. He re-injured an old cold splint and the resulting calcification was irritating his suspensory. The surgery went...
