    "I've had my new horse Flynn for a year now, and he is an amazing guy aside from his frequent episodes of tying up. I'm so upset that it has come to the point where I must sell him."

    I was under the impression that you were seriously considering selling him... My fault.

    Which fat and fiber pellet???

    Can you get MagOx up there?? It is a Mg supplement used for cattle ... many times a Mg supplement will help to STOP or lessen tying up

    Onetoomany - The original option of "selling" him would be back to the old owner where he could just live our his life in a pasture, she becomes very attached to her horses and I know she wouldn't sell him to anyone else knowing what could happen to him. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for your input!

    Peggysue - I'll ask the BO when I get the chance, I can't remember the brand. Thanks.

    Oh, aj, I'm so sorry to hear that. It is always hard to watch your beloved friend go through something like that. I don't have any advise other that what has already been suggested but I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and your horse and you are in my prayers. Just keep working with him. Besides sale or euthenasia, one other option that you might look into is if he is well broke, bombproof, and sound without heavy riding is look into donating him to a therapeutic riding center. They use horses help lots of people from children who are born with birth defects or mental ******ation to adults who have suffered brain or spinal cord injuries. The horses that they use are mostly kept in a walk and very well taken care of.
