    It is tangential, but I believe the Boarder got the gabapentin from a veterinarian friend of hers, not the vet practice that cares for the horse. It was not prescribed because a veterinarian has...

    Thanks everyone. Onthebit's got it right. Boarder has decided on her own that the horse should be on gabapentin, and in fact she's obtained some and dropped it off at the barn, without a vet...

    Hmm, the horse has absolutely total control over his hind end.

    If he didn't I'd agree with you about being in a herd, but he's been here a year and has always been in a herd (and his veterinarian,...

    Gabapentin/Boarder question

    Here's the question: what are the side effects/downsides to using gabapentin every day?

    Here's the backstory:

    I board 8 retirees on my private farm. Most owners are very hands off. One horse...

    There are only 3,600-odd signatures at this point, so it actually will make a difference if you sign. (I wasn't going to, because I assumed there already were hundreds of thousands of signatures).

    I suspect the owner is well aware of the situation. Also there could be other agreements /variances etc that you don't know about. Beyond that I can't really give advice.

    I harrow my fields too, and have never had a problem. (I fecal test the horses here). If someone has more than an acre and picks up poop I kind of think they are nuts. (Just that it is a huge amount...

    I like how simple the site is -- very easy to find information. I suppose you could put a few more photographs on it, if you'd like.

    Is this a one or two boarder situation, or a larger boarding operation? Because if only one or two I don't think the calculation is quite as businesslike. In either case, you need insurance. ...

    Yeah, I'm not sure the margins are better with high end facilities. Yes, obviously you charge a lot more, but then you have a lot more expenses.

    I would think that the largest expense for a new...

    I only have enough room for a month's supply. I think during the winter storing a couple of months' worth would be fine; in the summer it might get moldy by the end.
