  1. Feeding My 30 Years Old Mare For Winter

    have u tried soaking her feed? Our 32 yr appy get's 3 meals a day all soaked to a mash and besides being say backed vet says he's in awesome shape. We give him alfalfa pellets, senior Dynasty pellets, and beet pulp, msm, and Vit C all soaked in a mash, his weight his weight stays great and hubby stills takes him to fun shows good luck it's hard to find something that works for our old fellers
  2. Bug Repellant On The Trail

    yep bounce sheets work good especially for the horse flys, rub the horse entirely over his body with them then tie them on his headstall, back saddle, just aywhere, works pretty good around here

  7. Suggestion For Rescue Horse Diet

    Try soaking the beet pulp with the senior feed (and ditto on the NO sweet feed) maybe she would enjoy a warm mash, just a plain salt block, and all the good hay in front of her 24/7 and lots of time and patience those rehabs take lots of time, got any pics to post?

  13. Good Sr Feed.

    Congrat's on taking such great care of your guy. We have a leop app who just turned 31 and he cannot chew hay at all anymore has no back teeth left at all. We give him Beet Pulp, alafla pellets, rice bran, and Dynasty Senior all soaked to a mash, he does great on it, with the exception of being sway backed he looks pretty good.

  16. Ticks! Help!

    Ha yea Frontline couldn't think of it last nite, I've been using the 8-1 and so far so good
  17. Ticks! Help!

    I've been working on getting them off my Mustang, he was virtually COVERED everywhere with them (he came with them when I got him) anyway my farrier said he always uses hair spray - my vet said to try diluting prenythrim 8-1 and rub it all over them, or that stuff you put on dogs on the back of there neck (just had a blond moment and can't think of the name of it) and he even suggested instead of trying to smash them have a jar of alcohol out at the barn to drop them in. Good luck mine have been a nightmare

    double - so sorry to hear about flash hopefully at a recheck then maybe something could be done. Picked me up a mustang from Raymondville, MO couple weeks ago, 12 yr old from Nevada, have had him on 3 trail rides so far and no prob what so ever, only quirk he has is not standing at the trailer tied, has pulled away twice but I've got a way to cure that (hopefully) so me, Debbie, and a faew others with mustangs are going to put them in the parade of breeds at the Horse Fair in march in Springfield Ya'll take care
  19. How Much Beet Pulp?

    We use the beet pulp on our 30 yr old appy - this is what he get's 2 X day all soaked: 2 qts beet pulp 2 qts dynasty senior 1cup rice bran 1 cup alfala pellets besides being sway backed this keeps him at a good weight for a 30 yr old. He's missing quite a few teeth but still manages to chew some hay and does fine on pasture. Good luck I know it's frustrating keeping weight on them.

Doesn't like fun shows but she's a heck of a trail pony, just have no one to ride her, not sure if grandson will start riding her this yr or not. She has been foundered off/on but right now she is great been on grass hay all winter and doing great. She get's handfull of *pellets* so she can get her supplement twice day. Her name is Scooter. I'll talk to my kids and see what they think.
