    Here you go. Shipping is free.

    There's also a version for horses getting mostly alfalfa. And my horses looked great on just a half dose.

    Yeah, I'm willing to go with compounded meds in certain cases (I'm trying compounded omezaprole on my mare right now) but I use the Prascend for my Cushing's gelding. He's had one bout of laminitis,...

    Hopefully an abscess. My vet just has me give Bute for abscesses and nothing else, because the movement will encourage it to blow faster. This has worked every time :)

    I'm also somewhat close and use the LMF Super Supplement. Another good choice would be Horsetech's High Point vitamin/mineral supplement. There are different formulations depending on whether you...

    If the water is truly high in iron, then he may need more copper and zinc.

    I'm in California and in general, the hay grown here is high in iron which depletes copper and zinc (or something along...

    I would talk to your vet about changing up the worming program. I only worm my horses 3-4 times per year and even that's probably excessive given their living situation.

    As far as feed, I would...

    I carry personal horse owner's liability insurance for this kind of thing. It used to be covered by my homeowner's insurance, but I found out they dropped that coverage without informing anyone :(

    The smack happens around 1:44 minutes into the video. It's not the horse being shown, but the horse standing with the handler (in the right hand bottom of the screen).

    The Pyranha definitely works, but it also gives my mare hives. The Endure works pretty well. I usually just use Bronco, because it's cheap and lasts long enough for a lesson at least. The flies...

    I'm in California, I board, and my horses wear their fly masks 24/7 in their paddock. I check them every couple of days or so to make sure they both still have two eyes :) I have a ton of fly masks...

    I've got no issue with the dancing/prancing, etc., or the horses being "up," or the chains. I think what the OP was disturbed by (as am I) is the horse getting a good smack in the face for no...

    That's a lot of Bute. Even during an acute laminitis episode, my gelding was only getting 2 grams a day, and that was quickly dropped to 1 gram. My vet also prefers doing a "previcox trial" over a...

    I would have her tested for Cushing's. I think it's less than $100 to have the blood pulled and sent to Cornell, although I suppose there would be a ranch call fee involved. See if anyone else is...

    My mare got bumps like that on her stomach one year. The vet was out for shots and I asked her about it, and she said they were horn fly bites and that there must be cattle kept somewhere in the...

    Cannon keratosis. It can't really be cured, just managed. My mare had it really bad when I got her, it looked like scars from being caught in a fence or something similar. Using a dandruff shampoo...

    Well, I used to wonder if the problem was "me" when my gelding had so many random health issues requiring a vet (and the list is extensive). Then I got a second horse, who is healthy as can be, and...

    Now it's the horses. If you get rid of the horses, he'll find something else to bitch about and try to remove from your life.

    SO not worth it.

    I just ordered Nutramino (by Horsetech) for my gelding with Cushing's. I'll report back if I see any results. It's essentially the same thing as Tri Amino, except that Horsetech has free shipping. ...

    Move. I don't care what anyone says about barbed wire being safe in a large enough pasture, or causing superficial injuries.

    My mom watched a horse shred itself (had to be put down) on a barbed...

    I wouldn't feed it to a horse that can eat and digest hay, but following my gelding's molar extraction, the vet said no hay or grass for 30 days. So he got a soaked, extruded hay pellet...

    My mare's a huge sweater, even without a strenuous ride, and I can't imagine how itchy and uncomfortable she would be without a quick rinse after each ride, drought or not. My gelding can go without...

    All the horses at my barn were fine :) BO confirmed, however, that illegal fireworks were going off all over the place. My horses grew up in the area so I'm sure it's something they've heard every...

    My horses apparently survived, because I haven't had a text or call from the barn to indicate otherwise, but the illegal fireworks here were ridiculous last night.
