  1. How old is old?

    The horse I run (Sierra) is 25 and still going pretty strong. I don't run in any curcuit (yet), but unfortunatly I won't be running with her. Oh well, she's had a good life and I want her to enjoy the rest of it with her buddy.
  2. horse calming tricks?

    There is also a pressure point on the tip of the ear, if you pinch or squeeze this point your horse should calm down. The herbs should work great too. But be careful sometimes there are herbs in there that may not be allowed at an advertised event. Good Luck!
  3. Enchanted Highway pics.........

    That is so cool! I love the deer!
  4. Name help please from you creative people!

    Equine Mountian Sports Massage? Equine Valley " "? Equine River " "? IDK, something like that. That's about I can come up with. Sorry. Good luck!
  5. Sun burn help

    When I went to FL, I got burned so bad that I felt like Joan of Arc being burned at the stake. The only thing that seemed to help was more suntan lotion. We even bought aloe, but for some reason that didn't help any. Good luck and hope you feel better!
  6. What's wrong with him?

    If he hasn't been chewing than it could be that he needs his teeth floated. MHO: I would call the owner and tell them that the vet needs to come out and give these horses an exam NOW! I don't like hearing about horses in pain when it can easily be prevented.
  7. New Phantom Pictures!

    She look's great! Love that last pic. with the sun rays.
  8. Will you vote for my photo?

    I threw my vote in there.
  9. A Horse's Color....Popular?

    There's a lot of different colors around here, but I would say the most common ones are sorrel and bay. Love both colors (and the horses, of courses )

    quote: Originally posted by Cheri Wolfe: Not enough information. How old is she? What are you feeding during the winter? What kind of shape are ger teeth in? How often do you deworm and with what products? Does she get any kind of a Vitamin Supplement in the winter. Does she get grass in the summer? Is that the difference between summer and winter feed? She's 23. I think she got grain all winter, we tried beet pulp last year but it didn't help her any. We need to get a vet out to check her teeth, my friends farrier also suggested that, getting her teeth floated. I don't know when my friend deworms her, I should know that but I don't. I do know that she uses SafeGuard. I don't know what/if she's getting any vitamins, but I guess that could be factor. What should I give her that will help? She is on pasture all the time, and she has hay all the time also. Thanks for any and all advice.

  14. Wintering- Horse loses a lot of weight

    What do I do? She did better this year than last, probably because the horse that kept running her off her feed is gone. BUT... She still keeps losing too much weight in the winter. Is there anything I can feed her or do for her that will help? My friend (the owner) wants to build some stalls in the cow barn for her and the other horse, I think that will really help. Thanks in advance!!!
