    I give my horse salt but some people that I know do not. They say that you only need to give it if your horse doesn’t drink much water what do you think?

    My horse doesn’t like the taste of paste, I’ve even tried putting it in her food and she wouldn’t eat it. So I bought the deworming pellets, she quickly ate them and seems to like them. I just want to be sure it works as good :)

    My horse is an EXTREMELY picky eater and I am at my wits end trying to get her to eat powdered treatments for both hindgut and gastric ulcers (shes an ex-racehorse). She will put the food and powder in her mouth but spit it back out again. She hates the taste so much she will only eat a tiny...

    Lately I've seen quite a bit around getting your horses hair tested, I watch a video on YouTube about it, this girl swore by it. Then last night I was talking to a girl at my barn who had done it herself, and it was almost spooky how good it was. Anyone have any experiences or feedback about...
