Talk about drinking, that reminds me of the story of Pastor Fluff, an irish clergy. Nah you don't want to hear that one.

CW - sounds like the perfect birthday! What a thoughtful hubby.

Well, Kes is still off on her foot today, so no riding. But, not all of us were off the show circuit today. Both my boys went into leadline classes at a local show and both won blues (on my horse sitters mare). They are both so thrilled with themselves. I have two little horse lovers in my house...so they may look nothing like me, but thank God, they got my horse lovin genes.

Only just old enough to get entry into this thread you started. Just a youngster. That applies to any one younger than me, and if by some stroke of luck you are older than me, then you qualify for wrinkly status

Trust you had a great evening and consumed all of those food groups that are reportedly bad for the over fourty and enjoyed the show.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

Stan, I do not know how much Neem you have but I would melt some in a container, put a thick sponge in that and then let it set again and then wipe that all over the mare. She will stink and be greasy but it will stop the itching.

Thanks for that I will get however much it takes. I have enough for a first cover. I don't care how she smells as long as I can give her some relief

Her skin has deteriated considerably over the past two days which has caused me to get to the point of pulling my hair out No mean feat considering there is very little hair on my dome, and to try and closely analise the situation. Here is my take on Stella.

When I first brought her no issues and good nature.
Soon she became hard to handle spooking bolting I think we all have experienced it treated with magnesium and a very fast up skilling of my riding ability and teaching Stella her safe place.

Next problem she caught some form of equine flue and was left alone for three months. After that she developed the skin issue for the first time last xmas after getting a bad bout of ticks. Months of treatment and along comes winter the skin clears up. She was moved to a friends farm the same as last year and the same time a ticki collar put on her and within a few days skin problems again. Brought her home and now trying to treat her again.

I don't think this horse likes me, my jokes are not working, so here is what I think is going wrong.

Assuming the horse was healthy and did not have a skin problem when I brought her, and no infection has been identified by the biopsy that leaves inviroment.

I use think she had not bounced back from the flue, her immune system was down and she has been exposed to an over dose of myco-toxins which can and do fit the symptums I have noticed over the past year from last xmas. Discharge now and again from her snout, mood changes not fixable with magnesium, and the skin issue. Low PH of the ground at my place and friends. Exposure to to much grass and sugar and hay the same as last year.

If her immune system is shot not much of a future.

Feel like i'm grabbing at straws.

To tired to correct the spelling.

Cheers all

I am sure you are correct with her immune system but I would not give up hope with it yet.

Can you check as the whether or not your customs will allow a herbal package through customs?
I will send you some NAF D-tox which is my miracle cure for all ails.

This is the list of ingredients

Ingredients:
Grape pulp, Vit. C, Zinc/Copper amino acid chelate, Manganese amino acid chelate, Multiple source citrus bioflavonoids, Beta-Carotene, Alpha-Lipoic acid, Curcuma longa, Glycyrrhiza glabra, Pantothenic acid, Vitamin and Mineral Premix, Aromatic Herbs.

When Nick, the vet first brought it out I had a young horse that was suffering from a viral infection. This had been on going for two years. In the end he was more or less bald, and also suffering fro Cauda Equina, which is when the immune system turns on the nerve endings and cause paralysis. He was tested positive for this and at that time there was no hope for him.
Nick sent me the D-tox and also Equimune and we started him on that. Within 24 hours he was brighter in himself, he went on to make a good recovery. The effects of the CE caused him to always drag his back feet but he went on to be a useful hunt horse.

If you can purchase the D-tox from NAF out there then there will be no problem getting it through customs. I know they sell it in Australia, not sure about NZ. I get it trade price so it is only the postage which, if it is like USA works out cheaper than buying it there.

Hi all!

Spent the day at the breed show, had some friends showing so went to cheer them on. Was a beautiful day, very nice show, gorgeous Morgans. Sad that Kes wasn't there to show too, but just being there was good for me. Also, and here's my big news I haven't been able to tell until now, the show barn that we are moving to was there. I got to see our new trainer in action, and she's wonderful. Really supportive to the riders, a good coach, and all around a nice person.

The barn that we're moving to is further away, and we'll be in a pretty structured training/ lesson program. I won't see her everyday, but I do know she'll be in a great place, well cared for, and next to our friend's Morgans, who she already knows. We're going for our dressage training so that we'll be ready to show dressage at the rated shows next year, as well as be competitive in our hunter pleasure classes next year.

BIG changes for us, I'm going to go through withdrawals, and quite an adjustment period. But I know this barn is going to get us to my goals, and I know she will get exceptional care when I'm not around.
