I give my own, no need to have a vet out unless you need the offical paperwork.(Its easy, for horses just put the needle in, make sure you didn't hit blood and BANG! All done, dogs you give it under the scarf of their neck, a little tricky if you have a wiggler.) I peel the tags off and put them on dated "medical" stock cards that I keep on file in the case I need to present proof.

Indie gets a 4-way. Eastern & Western Encephalomyelitis; Influenza (A2 & KY97); & Tetanus Toxoid.

Covers the basic concerns of my area, we have many mosquitoes, and in the country its sometimes possible to avoid all the rusty metal you find when out and about. So Eastern & Western Encephalomyelitis and tetanus are my main concerns. :) All animals on the property get their rabies vaccines renewed every 3 years. I give those myself, but check your state laws as some prohibit self-serving rabies vaccines, and you need a licensed vet to do it and sign your paperwork. I personally love fort dodge; been using their vaccines for years without a problem.

P.s. Any news on the saddle?

I did get the saddle in this weekend and I really like the way it looks. I haven't had a chance to ride on it yet. I am hoping this weekend. I did try it on my horse real quickly and it fit him great. My only concern is that it sits up higher than my other saddle and I am going to have a lot of trouble getting up on it and my horse that is 16.2 hands. I am going to use it on a smaller horse first until I can break it in some. I hope to get pic. This weekend but the horses are so muddy that I didn't want to take pics. Until they are cleaned up some.

I think that I need to talk to my vet about giving 5-way and rabies. I am feeling like I am not protecting my horses enough. We travel a lot with them too.
