    Hello, I keep my horse(s) at a barn and one of them just passed away from a bad case of colic that led to twisted gut. I won’t get into it much right now because I’m still incredibly upset with how it was handled. But thinking it over, I’ve noticed that at least 3 different horses have had Colic...

    Hey there, I’m new to the community and I hope I can find some good advice here! I’m just gonna go ahead and apologize for the long post, but I feel that all this info may be needed. All questions are found at the bottom of the post. I’ve owned horses just about all my life, but never a young...

    I am a biology major at Mercyhurst University and I am pursuing a career as a veterinarian. I have been around horses most of my life and one practice I never understood was giving horses sugary human foods such as orange soda pop and gummy candies such as fruit roll-ups. Giving horses these...

    Hello all, I may be getting a little baby of only 3 months old. She is being weaned early due to current owners circumstances/reasons. I'm considering getting this baby as I'm already getting a 6 month old colt from close to the same area anyway and the two would have each other for company...

    Hi I may look like an absolute idiot posting this however I haven’t seen it before in any horses eyes near me. Does this look normal to you? I am just concerned about the white ring and the slight blue tinge to the pupil and obviously first thought is cataracts! It’s in both his eyes (pictures...

    This is not a troll. I am dead serious. I have recently bought a new mare for breeding but it has a problem. It has a VERY oversized clitoris and vagina which extends down from top to bottom about 2 hands or so. This clitoris itself remains well hidden while it is not in heat. But when she is in...

    We bought a gelding P.O.A. and halflinger cross for my kids as a beginner pony. We were told he was 12 but looking at his teeth I just can’t tell. I honestly don’t care either way he’ll have a great home for the rest of his life regardless, just curious. 🤔

    I just adopted an ex broodmare back in January so I'm new to this side of the horse world but have been involved with horses my whole life. The mare has an (almost calcified) buildup on her vulva... I can clean her up several times a day which helps with her itching out her tail but it doesn't...

    Hi, I’ve just moved to a new property where leeches are quite abundant in the paddocks. My other pets are fine and unaffected in general, but my two mini horses constantly have leeches on their feet/legs. I go out in the morning and their fetlocks are covered in blood. The only good thing is...

    Clydesdale car Hey guys, me and my family own a Clydesdale horse called Gimine and some other mares. Just a few days ago, I went to run an errand when I found Gimine sitting on the roof of our Skoda Octavia, his forward feet on the bonnet of the car. Upon closer inspection I realised that he...

    My gelding has a mild case of heaves and I have been searching for more natural ways to treat and relieve symptoms. I have been trying to do some research on essential oils and their effects on heaves. There are some sites that tell you to feed and some that tell you to let him breath it in. I...

He will be turning twenty next month, and has been having some...

    Puzzle of a liftime, I suppose. So I come here to see if anyone has seen/knows this/has suggestions! I've owned my mare for four years, give or take, but I've been her only rider for 6 years. Man, time goes fast. Anyway, since she's had bloodworms (or red worms, I think it's in the UK) and she...

    My mare has had loose stool and intermittent diarrhea for about 10 days. She had something similar a few years and was diagnosed with having some sand in her gut so I called the vet to ask for advice. She recommended the same treatment as last time and wasn't overly concerned by the symptoms my...
