    Would you be willing to board him at a barn with a schedule more close to his show days? Minimal turnout, busy environment? Even if he doesn't get worked there is the occasional horse who just...

    I use homemade fly spray - it's cheap and has less chemicals in it than the store bought stuff. So I don't feel as bad using it up like crazy.

    When the bugs are REALLY bad, I use Deep Woods OFF. ...

    I put 1/2 oz in the 32 oz fly spray bottles. I've yet to have a problem with it on my 2 mares - and the sorrel has some pretty bad allergies to most store bought fly sprays.

    OP is looking for a twisted dogbone o-ring snaffle in a size bigger than 5". It's going to be very difficult to find; for whatever reason western style snaffles rarely come in anything but 5".

    Hey ZuZu - any chance we can get a photo of your setup? It sounds ingenious.

    Have you tried a stiffer fly sheet like a Kensington or Baker?

    I second the suggestion of Cavallos. My mare doesn't have very good feet, sometimes she has flares. These boots fit even when her feet aren't looking too great.

    Loren Lamar (Jr or Sr) may be able to help depending on exactly where you are - if not, I'm sure Sr would be able to offer some suggestions for farriers closer to you.

    My young mare was doing similar things (licking dirt), and also would try to gnaw off big chunks of the mineral block. She was also eating poop. :dead:

    Will he still be getting ad lib hay in the new paddock? That will help him not overeat on the grass.

    If he's a little piggy and barely comes up for air when grazing, it may be worth putting a...

    I've used the Weaver Leather brand and Tough 1 brand - the combo ones with the halter included. I want to try the new Tough 1 Easy Breathe muzzle, it's gotten good reviews.

    Aren't ulcery horses supposed to NEVER have an empty stomach? And wouldn't you have to withhold all hay/grass for hours before the dose to actually have an empty stomach?

    I know only a tiny bit...

    I use and swear by flax. My mare gets hives, and her belly near her udders gets raw and bleeding without it. Also using a fly sheet/fly mask can also help.

    Not true. The vaccine for strangles isn't 100% effective and horses who are vaccinated can still get strangles.

    I know it's not what you're asking about, but have you tried adding flax into the diet? My mare gets hives too, and the flax has minimized it moreso than the fly sheet did.

    Jingles for your boy, hope the vet can figure it out and it's something relatively easy to fix.

    Until the vet comes out, I've heard some people will treat with a handful of tums twice a day, or...

    The last time my mare wore a muzzle, it was because the barn I was at weaned them onto grass too fast. So I used the muzzle to make it safer. The first day on grass they were out for 2 hours, my...

    Thanks for the input everyone! I've read articles that the muzzles reduce their intake anywhere between 30% and 80%. I don't know if it just depends on how skilled the horse is at the muzzle?

    Schedule for grazing muzzle?

    My mare is starting to get borderline plump - she goes out on an 8 acre pasture daily from 2 PM to 7ish AM. So about 17 hours. From 7 AM to 2 PM, she's in a stall with an attached run, with half a...

    Yes, mine are stalled with individual runs - then have a dry lot and grass pasture they get turned out onto with the 10 other boarder horses. The turnover rate at my barn is very low, so it's the...

    I second the suggestion of standing wraps each time the horse has to be stalled for extended periods.

    It may be a silly question, but is pasture board an option? If stalling is the issue, maybe...
