  1. Just wanted to say hi!

    Hi! And you’re killin’ me with the cuteness of that puppy!! Made my day, so thank you for sharing that!
  2. Prayers Please

    Thinking of you and your Mom! Hope things continue to go well!
  3. Where is everyone?

    Hi...so nice to hear from all of you. I just remember this place being so busy and active years ago, but I guess it reflects the fact that nothing ever stays the same. People move on, life changes, etc. I am definitely glad knowing that the site is at least still here...it’s very comforting, heck I even remembered my password to log back in, lol! I doubt anyone remembers me as it’s been several years, and even then I admittedly didn’t post THAT often...and I’m so sorry to say I don’t think I remember any of you either, but I’m very happy to make new acquaintances! Thank you all for replying to my message and letting me know that life still exists here at HorseCity. I’ll visit as often as I can and I look forward to chatting with each of you a bit more! Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, and that you all have a great week ahead!
  4. Where is everyone?

    Hi all! Wow, I haven’t been here in (probably) years and decided to just pop in to say hello...but the place seems almost completely abandoned compared to how busy and lively it used to be! What happened? Did everyone go to a different forum somewhere? I get it that message boards aren’t as popular as social media sites these days but wow, I’m really sad to see it so quiet! I hope you are all happy and enjoying the horsey life, wherever you are!
  5. My New Racing Blog

    Hi everyone, Hope you all had a nice weekend! Not sure how many of you remember me...I've been gone for a bit but it's nice to be back! First off, let me start by admitting that I don't REALLY know if it's OK to post this...or if it's even in the correct forum, maybe I should put it in General Chit-Chat instead? If I'm wrong can a mod please accept my apologies and maybe move it for me? Thanks so much. I'm launching a new blog (or rather, revamping an old blog lol)...the focus will be mainly on horse racing (with some general horse talk every now and then). I think I have some pretty cool ideas on some of the topics I want to start with, it won't just be blog posts about who is in training now and who had the best workout today, etc. etc. Sure, there will be some of that, but I plan to mix it up a bit. I'm hoping people will enjoy it, but right now I don't have any actual followers. In these early days I'm really looking/hoping for some constructive feedback to help me get it up and running, and I actually would like the blog to be fairly interactive eventually anyway. If some of you could check it out, maybe follow yourselves if you think it's something you might be interested in, and/or at least share the link I would really appreciate it. I plan to start posting more in the next couple of days so it shouldn't take long for people to get a feel for what it will be about. Either you'll want to stick around for more, or you won't, and of course either way is fine, but it's not going to go very far unless I at least get some type of audience to begin with. Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can give, even if it's just sharing the link on other horse-related sites to help me build an audience! Oh, and here's the link:http://equusfemina,blogspot.com Thanks again!!

  13. Older Horse Not Handling The Heat Like He Used To

    Everyone has already offered some great suggestions. Just a thought, first off, but if you aren't working him much, and he's on full-time pasture, he probably doesn't need 2 pounds of grain every day. That seems to be a bit much. A handful just to get him his supplements should be sufficient. Might want to consider re-balancing his diet. How is his BCS? Is he overweight? How is his haircoat? A fan is the first thing I'd suggest, like others have mentioned. Keep him in the shade and get a fan blowing directly on him when it's really hot out. Electrolytes and adding salt to encourage drinking is another idea. If it's really hot you might even try hosing him off in the heat of the day, but be sure to use a sweat scraper immediately after. Don't let the water pool on him because excessive water can actually TRAP the body heat and make him overheat faster. If he ISN'T sweating and the other horses are, that's actually a bigger concern because that's a sign that he's already dehydrated. So that actually worries me more. The lack of sweating indicates that he definitely isn't handling the heat well, and you might need to have a vet come out to look at him either way. Age is certainly a factor, I'm sure, but to be on the safe side you might want to have someone check him out before it becomes an emergency. Good luck!
