    Thanks colorfan - not too late at all! Incase the Rambos don't work I'll have a look at the Shires (and I am also a blanket hoarder - you can never have too many! Especially if I find one that fits...

    How bad is it to have thistle in hay??

    Related to my other post regarding hay testing, I'm wondering if I'm overreacting about there being thistle in my hay. The more people I talk to, the more say they have thistle in their hay as well....

  7. Hay testing - what is ESC really!? I thought it was the NSC I was looking at??

    Just got off the phone with my hay dealer and apparently they have an equine nutritionist helping them with their hay results this year. I asked her to let me know what the WSC plus starch was and...

    I live just south of Calgary and I fed my 2 warmbloods soaked alfalfa Tim cubes all last winter so it can be done but it is a huge pain. I have them at home which helps. I just fed out soaked cubes...

  14. Help please! Which is the "good" vetwrap.. placing an order

    There are two main vetwraps on the market, but one is a bit shorter, fatter (seems thicker) and doesn't do as good as a job as the other. I'm placing an order with SmartPak and I'm wondering if the...

    Good luck!! Also, if you do give her supplements but don't want to give her grain and her teeth aren't the best - you might want to give her alfalfa pellets that have been soaked in boiling water....

    We've been having really terrible weather for the hay growers in our area. Lots have cut and then we've had little thunder showers continously. Can the cut hay dry out and be baled and be ok? Or is...
