Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far. It's been an awesome day for me as well:) We started out with a girls day, me and 2 of my friends went to breakfast, then th local tack shop then went to see dba's babies so my friend could take some good pictures of them with an actual camera:) I don't have them yet but she's going to put them on a disc for me to upload then give to dba. She got some great shots of all the horses, not just the young ones. I did get a couple of pics,,,,
Here's the little black filly....
Here's the little bay filly, for some reason it won't copy over right from photobucket. My picture shows legs and all, this one doesn't for some reason??
And here they are together...
And on a seperate note, here's my beautiful Katy in her new setup:)
Capstar kills all the fleas on the animal for 24 hours. That's it- so if you have an infestation where there are flea eggs everywhere that continue to hatch out (one adult flea lays about 40 eggs that fall off wherever the animal hangs out per DAY) you're going to need something more long term. If you're traveling/visiting and pick up a couple hichhikers, the Capstar will get rid of them for you though.
One thing about Corpus- fleas are freaking everywhere! The stray cats that the neighbor feeds carry them all over the place (including my yard) and my dogs pick them up when they go out to potty or we go for a walk and bring them back in the house to the indoor only cats too. Drives me nuts. I've got to use some monthly treatment. Right now the Trifexis is working really well. Used the new Frontline Tritek for a month and the fleas were still biting my allergic girl and causing hot spots. Not impressed, so went back to Trifexis.
Nuisance can't wait for that mare to foal so you can join the texas foal club. LOL
Kctop I enjoyed the visit and your friends are great.
She took time out of her girls day out to spend time with me and the horses.
Those are great pictures and can't wait to see the ones your friend took.
Anyone else in the DFW area that wants to come see the horses is welcome for a visit.
You can help me gentle those two fillies that play hard to get. Just like a female. Shalom
Thanks dba, we enjoyed the visit as well, they were excited to see the babies! Jammie gave me a cd this morning at church but I haven't gotten a chance to see them yet. Hopefully I can get them uploaded tonight! I guarantee if the dh's would let them you would have 2 horses off your feed bill:)
Phew, been another busy weekend here!
Love the pics kctop, I can't wait to see the others with all of his horses. Dba, Dh and I may just have to stop in and see them in person after we get settled. Won't be too much longer!
Nuisance that pic is great! I hope cat foals tonight, I want to see that baby!!
Sharpie, what's your opinion on comfortis? Also, what do you think about some sort of mild sedative for my mini pig for the trip? He is going to have his own stall (partitioned and boxed off obviously) in my horse trailer so he will have room to move around and root, eat, drink, etc. I'm just wondering if he will do ok or if I should consider sedating him.
Comfortis is the drug spinosad, which when combined with heartworm protection, is sold as Trifexis. I love it, think it works great, especially for dogs or cats who are allergic to fleas. That said, I go with the Trifexis because it's just a little more and then it covers fleas, heartworms, and most intestinal parasites all in one go. It does cause an upset stomach in the occasional dog, especially if not given with food though.
Most drugs that cause sedation also make it more difficult for animals to control their temperature properly and balance well enough to avoid falling while in a vehicle. Since you'll be traveling in the heat, I think it would be pretty risky. IF the animal must be sedated for safety, it might be different, but generally I avoid sedating animals for travel if there are other alternatives.
