    I just bought a hot, 4 year old unraced thoroughbred mare named Grace about 5 months ago. I really think this horse is a ticking time bomb waiting to happen.

    So I'm new to all of this forum stuff, and I'm not finding what I want on internet searches. I use an all natural home made fly spray as I do not believe in dousing my horses in insecticide. The fly spray works well but it's not perfect... She still gets some bites on here chest/neck. I'm sure...

    Does anyone have any hints and tips for someone dealing with a horse who has just been diagnosed with sweet itch? She's coming up in large lumps as a result of insect bites, and rubbing her belly raw. She has a full body suit on the way also. Anyone else had any successful ways of dealing...

    Hi guys! This is my first post here, so stay with me! I've always loved and worked around horses. I had lessons when I was younger. Next year I will be going to a high school just for horses. But right now I work at a very popular park district in Ohio. My job is to work with the ponies &...
  10. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I recently bought a 21 month old quarter horse gelding. The people who I bought the horse from said that the previous owner always had to rope the horse in order to catch him. I can feed him, but he doesn't like to come up to me if I don't have food with me, he moves away when I try to pet...

    Kicks, bites, and love<3 Progress journal, by Sunny Tuesday, March 30, 2010 No going to the barn today, pretty bogus. I went yesterday and Sunny got a good grooming to make do until tomorrow's bath. :twisted: She was a sweetheart, as usual, and did the best job of picking up her feet, ever. I...

    My gelding, Duckie, always wants to bite everyone! Any ideas on how to make him stop? Hitting him only makes him worse! I really need this to stop! He'll do it randomly like when he's in his stall, cross ties and out in the pasture, also when tightening the girth (I try to do it slowly so it...
