    How much hay is "4 flakes"? Will she eat more hay, or does the grass pull her away from that?

    5.5lb of the Ultium isn't a lot, so you can safely increase that, and that's a really good bang for...

    I know I sound like a broken record on this, but Gatsby. He lightens up heavier mares and adds bone to lighter ones. He's over 50% TB. I've seen quite a few of his offspring out of full and half...

    If she's truly fat, I'd go with the TC Lite and see if she can do 2lb/500lb body weight. If not, try 1lb/500lb body weight. If that's still too much, then the TC 30 or any brand's ration balancer.

    How heavy is the liner? If it's reasonably heavy, I'd go with the 80gm "sheet". A layering of the liner and that sheet will be warmer than just adding the 2 numbers/weights together. The 80gm...

    It's not THAT hot here :) We're pretty much done with the worst heat and the worst humidity, and for sure the combination. A few days here and there might still be icky, but in general, we're...

    Northern or Southern area? More East or West? In other words, what are your typical Jan day temps? Night?

    180gm insulation with a highly breathable blanket is very versatile. Between that and...

    Gatsby does everything you want - more bone, sensible. He's got kids eventing, he crosses very well with TB mares (and especially well-built ones like this).

    Most County Extension Agencies have some degree of testing available. There is also www.equi-analytical.com and www.dairyone.com

    I know there are others, those are the ones I think of.

    Nothing *always* helps :)

    No wedge will help for what you're doing (LTLH) if the toe isn't also brought back, and the heels rasped down and back, where they all belong.

    Cubes are indeed the next best thing to hay, as they are at least a long-stem fiber, if just barely.

    But for what you are needing alf for (which isn't to replace hay/grass), it almost doesn't...

    I would not. Any moisture at all will start to degrade the outer coating which will then quickly allow the omeprazole to be "damaged".

    Enrich is heavy, so it's about in the 2c/lb range (most are more like 3c/lb).

    To that end, I'd feed the Enrich at 1lb and that's it. There's no need for oats or any other feed, unless you need it...

    Yep, the long and lateral extensor tendons are there, and even if they are severed, they health pretty darn well most of the time (BTDT). If they are just damaged, without being severed, it's an even...

    A great many abscesses don't react to hoof testers :)

    The bad thing about being reactive to chiro/MT is you don't know if that's a symptom of what's really going on, or if that IS the problem. ...

    Why did she stop blocking at the foot? :confused: That's the first thing I'd do, is block as high as you can (working up of course).

    If the lameness is consistently the same leg, I would think...

    Could be the stinger of whatever it was is still stuck in there.

    As mentioned, it's a bad idea to give Ace to an upset horse - doesn't work (well) and can often make things worse.

    If it's possible to break open a good random sample of the bales (assuming small squares) then take a handful from the center-ish of each, if you just can't get your hands on a probe.
