Coreene, Thank you for sharing him with us.
Then look up Inverness problem.
I went through a bunch of things with my head tossing gelding and treating for ulcers did the trick.
Can you get someone else to hack him or jump him? Or can you just man up and hack him once a week whether you like it or not, for his sake?
Better living through pharmaceuticals. Try progesterone, Vitamin B, etc.
Do you ride him?
Sorry you are dealing with all this!! I hope you can find a vet that will do the rabies for a reasonable amount. Good luck!
Have you tested for blood in the manure? Easy test that might tell you something. I guess you've done Fecal Egg Counts?
Those comments on the post are crazy out of line. We should be reported for cruelty if we leave a horse on a trailer? Are these people nuts? Or are they not horse people?
Talk to the officers of the other club. We revitalized the local club by offering clinics at my barn, on my school horses. There is no reason you can't be part of that club, but have mounted meetings...
You should not be working with this horse alone. Get some help. It might not take a lot to get you to safely be able to handle him, but this is such a basic issue that a knowledgeable person would...
I know you will rescue some cat that needs it, and I guess that is what really matters. If you are near NC I can hook you up.
I might point out, it is not dark at 8:30.
I would never show up at someone's house at 8:30 at night.
I am a rescuer. I have 4 crates of cats/kittens in my office, from the local shelter.
When I hand them off to an adopter, I am responsible...
Check for hind gut ulcers by doing the test for blood in the manure. My 33 year old looks terrible now. He eats grain but not much else.
I know that Stuart has a really nice horse, with very supportive owners, a plus for making the team.
That was a masterclass in XC, By Andrew and Avebury. Four New Zealanders in the top 5. Reminds me of the 90s.
You should move. When you consulted with all the other boarders, you overstepped. Move to a place with like minded people.
They did say they were suspending, rather than out right dropping him. I do hope he is found to be innocent of any wrong doing and reinstated.
Ick on the Ice Fil. They are super slippery. I felt like I was riding in pajama pants.
Ack! How can you suggest just not feeding her breakfast? That sounds cruel to me. These inside animals are so dependent on us.
Sounds like kitty is lucky you love her. :)
Are we talking barn doors? Not individual stall doors? And no windows in stalls? And why don't they go out at night? Lay it out for me.
That woman in the video is one lucky idiot.
Smartalex, that made me laugh. I needed that.
Checking back in on you, OP. I am sorry you had such a crappy experience last week, but I am glad to hear you are getting some help.
