    Hi everyone, so I've recently started university and moved to the city, meaning I've had to agist my boy about an hour away. He has someone feed and rug him everyday etc. so he's not completely neglected but he acts as though he is every time I leave. Anyway, today I went out to go for a...
  2. General Off Topic Discussion
    Decided to share this as it has definitely been a life saver for me. Every summer I have fought a losing battle with "boob rot", same fungus as the other two, just called by a different name. I had tried all kinds of stuff that was suppose to help or cure it. Well finally last summer...

    I have 2 mares that have some sort of growth? Between their thighs. Living in the Philippines, so very humid tropical environment. Has anyone seen anything like this?

    When I adopted my OTTB at the end of June, she had rain rot on her hind leg and it started spreading to her other legs and up her back. I'd never dealt with it before, so at first I didn't realize what it was until it was too late, and then I didn't know I was spreading it with her brushes and...
  5. Horse Tack and Equipment
    My mother owns a dressage saddle (pretty new, about 2.5 years old) that she uses weekly. It's made of smooth glossy finish leather (don't know the right term) pretty good quality, leather is pretty hard and thick. She usually stores it in the common equipment room of the stables and in summer...

    Never heard of this product. Funky stuff? : ) I should get some of that additive for items in my refrigerator. What is the cost of this product compared to regular baled shavings? It will be interesting to see if anyone has used it. Welcome to the board!

    My mare was extremely dry and flakey for a while and her legs became scabby. After doing some research, it sounds a lot like ringworm (it isn't rainrot for sure). I buzzed her down in case of it being ringworm so that there's nothing for the fungus to feed off of and I began treating her today...

    Hello again Horse Forum, I am back with more exciting issues with Syrah, the unsolvable case. I posted on here about a month or two ago about her hip and back issues. Well we now have a new problem to figure out and again the vets are no help. Here is a recap of Syrah: - between 6 and 8 years...

    I bought a filly off of CL. I grew up helping my dad train horses he fostered from the SPCA, so i figured a filly would be easy since she was trained. She was NOT trained, liars on CL (shock). So she was fine in the trailer and getting out. When i got her in the pasture, she went nuts. I called...

    So my horse (Sienna) is currently living in a field with five other horses. The property is huge (100+ acres) so she has plenty of room. However, the man who owns it can only get out to it at minimum once a week. This is not an ideal situation, I know. Hopefully she will not be there forever and...

    Hi everyone, I really want to know about this... what is the best product to keep the hoofs hard and what makes them soft? I live in Florida and it's very hot right now. My horse does NOT have shoes and her feet are in good condition, minus a few cracks here and there. I use Hoof care in a...

    I have used vetrolin for a while and love it, but it seems to grow a yucky brown fungus in it after a while, does anyone know what causes this?
  13. Horse Health
    Hey all! So I recently moved my horse to a new barn and the day after he got off the trailer I noticed this new growth of stuff on his back leg. It's only on the one leg, only in this one spot and it hasnt really changed in the last 3 weeks. He's out in a dry paddock (we live in colorado) so...
