What a sweet looking horse. I got a Morgan a couple of weeks ago (my first but definitely not my last). Congratulations on your new arrival. I hope all goes well with the meds.

How very kind of you to give an old mare a loving home!

What I like to do to insure a horse gets it's full dose of medicine is to mix the pill(s) in a little water, then stir in something they like (sugar, molasses, corn syrup, applesauce) and suck it up in a syringe (cut off the tip) then squirt it in their mouth, just like you are worming them.

I didn't know the extent of the situation, and was just trying to reiterate that the most simple answer to a problem is often the best one ;)

^^^^^^ This is my preferred method too. I have found adding flavored electrolytes to the applesauce works better than sugar for some. Mix it and suck it up then dose it like a wormer.

Love it & you know its dissolved, I could mix it in the morning then give it to her after her last meal at night ;), as long as she doesn't drop it out.

Some times you fall before you fly, In my case, I stumbled into the dark fell on my face got up and walked into the wall.

Some one loved this horse. the story I was given was the farm was burnt in a wild fire so they decided to sell every thing, Rosie was going to be put down because they didn't think any one would want her, the lady I bought her from picked her up to make a few dollars, smooth talking beach of a woman lol I know her dad he does work on our property, he said free but his daughter wanted money or to trade for my mini who is trained to drive and perform tricks she would defiantly make some money off him. long story short I ended up keeping both & 4 bags of feed (I'm sure her dad bought) for 400.00 ;) I wasn't letting ether one leave with her (witch of a woman) <(;{

It is horrible anytime someone takes advantage of a disaster for their own monetary gain. Hopefully that female will get her come -uppance.

Bless you a thousand times for giving the mare a great home for however many years she has left.

Those white marks on her face -- I wonder if her face was singed in the fire? Or possibly she once had a reaction to vaccines?

I saw that type of hair scarring many years ago on a Rottweiler that had an adverse reaction to some sort of drugs. --- I THINK it was when he was given anesthetic to be x-rayed for hip displasia ---- its been so many years ago I can't remember for sure.

At any rate, thank you for taking the Sweet Face and for keeping your Mini

Could have been some thing the vet never mentioned any thing about a trauma they said greying, maybe because of the cushings idk the vet looked her over really well. The animals were evacuated to my home town so she wasn't in the fire.
