  1. I live in Iowa and yesterday we were hit 60 miles north of me by tornados. One town was almost completely leveled. Farms were hit and 2 more towns. 7 Dead at this time. I feel this is one of the worst years with tornados. Colorado rarely gets them and they were devistated in Windsor. Souther California, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, and states to the east like Kentucky, and Virginia. They are popping up every where. In local news this am a horse was just wondering looking confused. At this time we can't even get into those towns to help them as too many power lines down and gas leaks. I think for a day or longer we should just be glad we did not get hit. My prayers go to all those that were hit and they say more are coming in the next week. It has been a bad year all over the USA. All I can say is pray and hope for these people and be glad you are the fortunate one not hit. I been through 2 and they were too scary for me.
  2. I have a 16.3 hand Appaloosa and I can not ride much, if at all do to past car accident. I was wondering if anyone leases out their horse? How much do you get? I would lease mine out. I would pay for vet,farrier,feed and supplement. They would just have to board it or pay for board that I agreed on. It would have to have pasture and area to get out of the elemets.They would have to be an average to above average rider. I also would like to have him close enough that I could go see him and maybe if possible ride him. I would also furnish all grooming equipment and riding equipment. I live in Iowa and never see ads for horses for lease. Does anyone lease in Eastern Iowa?
  3. Open areas on back legs, HELP

    Thank you for all your responses. He is in a stall that is extremely thick bedded. He gets them or breaks them open when I let him out to run and he always rolls. You mentioned the pads. I have looked at about 5 or 6 areas and not able to find pads that cover hocks. Most I have found are all for below hocks. For all the ointment I go through and meds to keep them clean I will buy the pads if I can find them long enough and they meant to cover the hocks. If anyone knows where to get them please let me know. Thank you again.

  5. I have a 5 year old Appaloosa that is 16.3 hands tall. He loves to roll and lay in stall. He is boarded where he gets out of stall for a time each day. The problem is I just get the boney prominant areas healed up and he breaks them open. I don't know of any special design wraps for that hock or boney area, as it needs to bend. I need any suggestions anyone can give me. Like I said I get them healed and he breaks them open either when he rolls, which I have wittnessed or when he lays down in stall. Please help. Thank you.

  7. Slow growing mane and tail in Appaloosa

    Hi! Thanks for your responses. He is on Omega 3 supplement for skin. I have never heard of MTG. Can someone tell me please what it is? When he was stalled and I conditioned it all the time they were getting thicker and longer. He is now going to a Equestrine College for a student to use as I had neck surgery and can not ride at this time. I want to give her ideas as she is to work on him every day of the week. If I know what MTG is then I may get it to see if it helps. I also have to be sure it does not react wrong with current supplements. Thank you again for your responses. The pics of the grey Appaloosa are beautiful. Nice job on getting his tail and mane to look so nice. By the way my Appaloosa looks like the Appaloosa on Appaloosa Association sticker book but with much shorter mane and tail. He is chocolate with huge spotted blanket on rump and blaze on face. The rest is dark chocolate brown. His Sire was TB and Dam was QH. He is 16 2 hands tall.

  9. Slow growing mane and tail in Appaloosa

    I have a four year old Appaloosa and I just get his mane and tail to start to grow out and then it gets short and thin. He is on supplements for hooves and a skin condition he gets twice a year. The skin condition is not fungus. Between vet and Iowa State University Equine Vet School unable to figure out skin condition. Diet supplement seemed to be helping greatly. But this tail and mane thinness and short tail has got me stumped. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it. I was told by a couple of Appaloosa owners this is common in Appaloosas. Give me your ideas please.
