    Hi all, sorry I've been away for awhile, school is crazy busy and my horse was just diagnosed with Cushings. :((((( Not going to lie I was sort of expecting it, and I'm actually relieved it's that and not something worse. My vet recommended Pergolide to control his symptoms, saying that...

    I have viewed a pony today that is perfect in every way for what I want. He does however have cushings disease which he takes half a tablet a day for. The seller says it is only mild and he doesn't need restricted grazing etc. He is up for £600 but I think this may be too much for an 18 year old...

    My pony has cushings and so this spring when it gets warmer I want to clip him to get rid of the extra fur! I dont want the clippers that are only for a face trim and I want some that are decently quiet because it has been years since Alfie was clipped so I dont want to scare him! Any suggestions?

    Two years ago I acquired a 15ish year old mare from a bad situation. For the first six months, she wouldn't even look at me straight on, and even now, two years later, she has come a long way, but I think she will always have trust issues. About four months ago, she began excessive...
