    Those who use Smartpak for supplements: What do you recommend for joint supplements? Looking to add some to my 20 year old TB diet to keep her joints in good shape. She can be a picky eater at times, so has to be somewhat more palatable and easy on the stomach. I already use Smartpak so...
  2. Horse Health
    So when we got my rescue mare she was a few days away from death. Totally healthy now but her back legs were covered in her own poop. Her pasture mates wouldn't let her eat the hay so she lived off grass scraps all year round for 7 (almost 8!!) years (with care from pb's coming in every once in...
  3. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment Queries
    My gelding is 23 and has been at his current barn for 4 years and seems to be very happy there. He has a best buddy that he is turned out with along with several other geldings. I thought I wanted to relocate him closer to me but now that I have a plan to do that I am second guessing. My horse...
  4. Horse Feeds, Feeding and Nutrition
    I have a senior QH mare (28 y/o) with access to 24/7 pasture and is given ~2 flakes hay/day by owners of boarding facility. She recently lost a bunch of weight due to an infection in her teeth - so I have started her on grain (~1.5 lbs) and alfalfa pellets (0.5 lbs) once daily. I am gone on the...

    Hey everyone. So royal got his script for prascend and im waiting on the medication. I will speak to my vet about 0.25mg of tablet over 3 days until he reaches his 1mg dosages. I was wondering if anyone on here has images of there horses before and after prascend? Not so much for the coat...

    Hi all! I have an senior (20 year old) mare who bowed a tendon last month. She’s been on stall rest with minimal walking ever since. With the vet’s guidance, I recently started hand-walking her for a few minutes every day, which I am slowly increasing as she heals. This poor horse looks like...
  9. Horse Feeds, Feeding and Nutrition
    So I adopted a 22 year old gelding with Cushing's this August and got him started on pergolide (he's had Cushing's since he was around 7 but was never treated for it and had unlimited access to pasture). He has no access to fresh pasture and gets 4-5 flakes of grass hay per day (and he never...
