I gave Gunnar a hollowed out pumpkin on halloween with grain and carrots/apples chopped up. He didn't eat the pumpkin but maybe in his feed..
And I hate chestnuts :) I peel them weekly if there's anything there. Posted via Mobile Device
Caleb's chestnuts peel nicely without anything on them. On sweaty horses/saddle pads, baby powder works wonders for drying and helps greatly with sweaty horsey smell! Just be careful not to let the horse accidentally inhale any.
Also for hoof, joint, coat and skin health, two teaspoons of flax seed oil (cold pressed organic) is an amazing supplement. It also helps metabolism and immune function and can even reduce inflammation!
If you don't have a sweat scraper, a windshield ice scraper works almost as well.
I had a horse that wouldn't let me give her a bath with a hose, so I got a wash comb thing that you hook a hose up to so it looks like a brush, but then you can gradually add water. It worked for my horse, now I don't have to use buckets and sponges! But I still use that wash comb, because I like it even better then a hose and you can almost curry while you wash.
