    I asked my hay guy this very question this past weekend. He confirms what others have said as well…even after a year or two, the hay if well-prepared and well-stored would be fine to feed.

    I had an OTTB that regularly abscessed … once a month at least for 2 years. He sometimes abscessed in both front feet at the same time. I can understand your emotional exhaustion, but it can take a...

    Sounds like you board with nice people, and that says a lot. I boarded my horse with a particularly spiteful witch who threw out a very expensive brush because I left it out one day. And by threw...

    My older horse and my OTTB both lose weight in the summer. They are fat and shiny all winter and spring, and then poof! There goes the cushion. Or, at least it did until I gave up trying to keep...

    I also was going to ask if a glue on might help. I have my guy in a sigafoos morrison roller shoe with heavy duty therapeutic pads. It was pretty much a miracle from day one.

    I retired my older GP horse the day he gave me the most amazing, light, balanced canter and pirouettes I had ever on him. It was just right for me and him at the time. I could not stomach the...

    So, I had a great discussion with a trainer this past weekend, and really do believe his advice that horses 'act out' for only one of two reasons - fear or frustration. Once I break that simple idea...

    FWIW, I'd cut out all pelleted feed and give him a handful of hay stretcher if he needs something while the others eat. I'd try ranitidine or other ulcer med if he can't have alfalfa (which would...
