- I'm in southern lower Michigan. We have had a rather cold winter but the days are definitely getting longer and I have seen robins and the birds are singing their spring songs (sweet!) and according to the weather man we will be in the mid-30s by the end of next week :) I'm remembering a few snow storms in our area in May too but usually we are snow-less, cold but without snow by mid-May.
- I'm not sure where you're located, but the horses here in Alberta are starting to shed as well. *knock on wood* that Spring is around the corner and we don't get any freak snowstorms in like May - which isn't terribly common here, but certainly not unheard of.

Posted On: 09-09-2014, 10:15 PMBenadryl is great for "heavey" horses, but the antihistamine effect can cause the horse to stop sweating so make sure you monitor him while the weather is still warm. If he stops sweating after...Liked On: 09-09-2014, 10:01 PM
Posted On: 09-09-2014, 09:26 PMDosage for Benadryl is 2-4 mg/kg/. For a 1000#/454 Kg horse that would be 900-1800mg broken down into 3 doses. You can buy cheap generic at Costco or Sams. Typical tablets are 25mg. Don't they...Liked On: 09-05-2014, 05:21 PM

Posted On: 09-04-2014, 11:40 AMYour horse could of developed allergies once he got to your place just from different triggers be it environment or diet. It's hard to tell what the triggers are at this point. If it's environment,...Liked On: 09-04-2014, 10:53 AM

Posted On: 06-25-2014, 12:21 PMHey everyone! :) I bought a mare last month, I've ridden her a few times and she is a very sweet girl. I was told she was 5 or 6 but I just had her teeth floated and the equine dentist informed me...Liked On: 06-25-2014, 06:12 PM
