    I've been looking for some round bales for my horse and the two other ones that share the paddock with him. My only problem is I am not able to find anything other than Bermuda Coastal in my area?! I have gone on to several websites to look for something like TNA, Timothy, Orchard, and I have...

I ended up getting the southern states legends performance sweet feed, because it is also a...

    Hi there! First of all, as a disclaimer, I would like to say that, yes, we are going to take him to a vet, but we're just working through what it could be in the meantime. Our (roughly) 16 year old Quarter horse has always had problems with keeping weight and staying healthy - he's a rescue...

    Hi, I was concerned about this foal who boards at my barn. He does not belong to me. He will be a year old some time next month (May). He chews on the wood A LOT. I had my camera with me the other day and decided to video tape him. When I watched it, it looked like he was actually eating the...

    Rearing when eating whilst being ridden I have a lovely cob mare who is 15hh and 13yrs old. She is great in everyway apart from one and this has got worse recently. Whilst we are out riding she will put her head done to eat and i don't let her, most of the time she will just accept that and...
