  1. Balancing Weight Gain and Energy

    Yeah what are you feeding her? Are you feeding her any rice bran? Thats a great fat supplement. You can feed up to 3lbs per day. Nutrena Empower is a great rice bran, plus its in nugget form. We won't know whats making her hot unless you list her diet. Lisa

  3. OT: Cat Neutering question

    Hi all I just had my 3 yr old male cat neutered yesterday. He's a big boy.. weighed 11.4 lbs, but he's big boned not fat. My question: how long after they've been neutered can they still reproduce? I know with horses it can be a month or two.. but since he's not as big as one, I was just wondering. ETA: Also, how long after are they still territorial? Can they still spray after they've been fixed? Thanks!! Lisa [ 03-15-2006, 10:18 PM: Message edited by: LisaX4156 ]

  5. Grade One Lameness?

    When this potential buyer had a prepurchase done on Skip, the vet determined that he was Grade 2 in front and grade 1 behind. Skip has also been barefoot and had soft soles, and apparently wasn't doing the barefoot thing as well as I thought he was. Let alone, the vet made him move on gravel. Barefoot horses, especially ones with very apparent soft soles, can't move well on gravel much less trot. Vet wanted Skip to trot on gravel. He didnt want to. I wonder why. So I lost the sale because of that. All Skip needed was shoes but the vet didn't want to say that. He passed everything else. It pissed me off that the vet didn't want to say all he needed was shoes considering he passed everything including the hoof testers and flexions. Anyways. I was sharing my story Lisa [ 03-15-2006, 10:10 PM: Message edited by: LisaX4156 ]

  7. He's a gorgeous horse. Got anymore pics of him Skip didnt' bleed very much when he was gelded and he was a week shy of his 8th b day. Yes, if you have a round pen, exercise him or he'll swell up like a balloon. I noticed with Skip that once I got him moving (trotting), the swelling went away. So do a lot of trotting with him to keep the swelling down. I did give Skip 3-4 days off though after his gelding before I started working him. Lisa

  9. Purina Ultium?

    Strategy sucks IMO. Let alone, horses get very hot on it. I haven't had much luck feeding Strategy. Even though Ultium is labeled for performance horses, it is great for underweight horses as it has more nutrients than a 'normal' grain would. Underweight horses need the extra nutrients, calories and fat that Ultium provides. Ultium is high in calories and fat. Lisa

  11. Purina Ultium?

    I LOVE Ultium. If I had a horse that needs weight, this will be the ONLY grain I turn to. Ultium has been the ONLY grain, even over rice bran, to put weight on an OTTB gelding I had. It was NICE. It also mellows out their attitudes a bit. It does give them energy, but its a controlled energy release, and seeing as its a performance feed, the performance horses need the energy. Horses don't become hot on this grain. All horses will have some sort of energy being on ANY type of grain. Lisa [ 03-09-2006, 10:45 AM: Message edited by: LisaX4156 ]

  15. Nutrena vs Purina

    I don't like Nutrena feeds. I feel they are a low quality feed. I've never had any luck at ALL with ANY of their products when fed to different horses. It's always been Purina I've had the luck with...... Lisa
