  1. how old is too old to ride

    Not at all if you ask me but it all depends on the horse. Most 19 year olds are still in fine shape for going out on the trails or doing anything. As long as the horse is happy and healthy and able to do what it is asked it is fine. My mare is 23 and going strong! Good Luck! [ 12-18-2006, 10:06 PM: Message edited by: Fable ]

  4. Tips for Showing- Pictures!

    Congrats! You guys look awesome together!!
  5. I used to body clip my mare in the summer because her coat was so think before we adjusted her diet. You're best bet would full body clippers You could also use a regular set of clippers but you may find that you have to change the blade a few times before the clip job is done. Good Luck!!!
  6. Which Dewormer for Which Season?

    I have always been taught to alternate between some form of ivermectin and a type of pyrantel tartrate (Strongid) every six weeks. For example give a paste of ivermectin then six weeks later give pyrantel tartrate(Strongid). Right now I do feed through wormer (My veterinarian recommended to do it) with my mare so she gets the feed through year round every day and ivermectin twice a year.

  8. Enough water?

    I'm sure that she is getting enough water. Don't worry unless she gets dehydrated. My mare is the same way she loves the water outside in the plastic trough and drinks tons. In her stall she really doesnt drink much at all and she is fine.

  12. Usually about a month to a month and a half is enough time apart to be weaned after that they should be fine in the field together.

  14. Rusty Clipper blades

    You might be able to try an SOS pad on them. Just take the blades off the clippers and give them a good scrub. Hope this helps! [ 12-18-2006, 11:15 AM: Message edited by: Fable ]
