  4. It looks like a skunk crawled up under the hay pallets and died...now what?

    This was the secondary hay storage barn and we don't know how long ago it happened. It smells, but not horribly. The hay is stacked up high, filling the whole barn. Is it all ruined?

    I rode in shorts back when my BO allowed it, and at home in summer. On especially warm days I'll hose myself down before riding so my clothes and ponytail are wet, and the horse as well. My heat...

    Stops Colic

    I was just at the tack shop and picked up a brochure for "Stops Colic", a product that claims it will return your horse to normal in 1-3 hours. Too good to be true? Or something worthwhile to have on...
