    Hello there. So, I'm going to be staying out on a ranch this winter for a while (all parties have been taking all the necessary precautions so COVID isn't an issue here) and there is an 8-year-old quarter horse named Penny who foundered sometime last fall. She has been lame since but it has...

    Hey friends! I used to participate on this forum years ago. I have lost contact with a lot of the horse people I used to see, and am now at a loss with my aging equine, so am looking to see if anyone here may have some suggestions. He will be turning twenty next month, and has been having some...

    Hi! I am looking into supplements for my 17 year old QH that is showing some stiffness due to mild arthritis this year. I know Cosequin is good, but I also ran across Equinety, and it says that it is also good for horses who get abscesses alot, which mine sometimes does, but it also says that it...

    My Farrier was out today and is noticing early signs of arthritis in my 10 year old mares back right foot. I will be having the vet out next month for vaccines so I will speak with him about it then but I was wondering if there were any joint supplements that I could get without a vet script...

    Just wondering what you guys recommend for supplements and minerals to give your horses. I'm going to be giving some to my horses, just trying to figure out which kinds would be the best to get. For my older horse, I'm looking for something to help her gain a bit more weight and that'll help...

    Using seaweed with horses Hey everyone! New to this forum and had a question for y'all. I have been around horses all my life, and I have began caring for my own here within the past couple years. My friend (who is a fellow equestrian) was talking to me the other day and he mentioned something...

    Would really appreciate input on this subject. I purchased my mare in June and continued the recommended feed that the breeder suggested. The brand is Tribute Kalm Ultra. They would give her a quart each day and sprinkle it with electrolyte powder (Apple a Day by Finish Line). Fed her all this...

    My horse has been dealing with arthritis for a while and it is really up and down. He can be fine for a few months and then be lame for a few weeks. Would supplements or hyaluronic acid injections be a better route? Or maybe stretches?

    Hey everyone, So my boy has been on a fattening diet for the first 6 months I had him. He was very skinny. He is a Clydie X, so he doesn't need much feed at all. Now he's a big healthy pony, maybe a little bit too fat for my liking. I have changed his diet. I've started working him a month...

    Looking for a supplement to put my ottb on for his ulcers. Currently treating him for ulcers but looking for a daily supplement to hopefully prevent creation of future ulcers. There are so many gut health products on the market I am having trouble choosing one. I am leaning towards biotic 8 from...

    I see it is quite a hot topic of probiotics, prebiotics, and boosting a horse's immune system supplements. Wondering if anyone could give me their experiences with any of those or why/when it is used. If and what supplements have worked for you, etc. I don't have any experience of using them...

    Hey guys! So, I'm looking for a great joint supplement for one of my geldings, but there's a big story involved, so let me tell you that first. :) Last Novemeber, my QH gelding Mateo was locked outside in a paddock, until I could get my mare into her stall to feed her dinner. Mateo go...

    Looking for any advice from fellow horse people! A week ago my horse started to seem like he wasn't feeling well. I've worked with him a couple times since and pushed him through it since he is naturally unmotivated. He really doesn't want to move forward even when he has energy and I can tell...

    I have a 5 year old Curly mare that was seriously injured as a weanling - thus the partially fused right front knee. She has about 50% movement in the knee joint and shows no lameness upon flexion or trotting out. The veterinarian cleared her for driving and light riding. Since she's showing...

    I've noticed that both my Paint and my Tennessee Walker gelding have had really thin manes, and both of them had beautiful long manes before. I looked out the window a couple of days ago and found out why. My donkey has been chewing their manes, which makes sense because the problem started a...

    Pete is a 15.3 hand 5 year old paint gelding. He has hoof problems (already got a supplement for that, and also using venice turpentine and of course proper farrier work :wink:) but I was wondering, is there any more supplements that I should feed to him? I'm happy with how shiny his coat is...

    I'm more just curious than anything else and like to collect tons of data. So I was wondering what vitamin and mineral supplement everybody uses? Do you use your V&M with a ration balancer? If so which RB? Or do you feed grain or a bagged feed? If so which one? Why do you like that...

    What supplements would you recommend for barrel horses? I just want/need my performance horses to have the best care possible! :-)

    Hey everyone! Before I start I'll give you a little background on my horse. He's a 6 year old QH/TB gelding, a middle to upper 15hh and about 1200 pounds. He's a VERY laidback and easy going horse.. As in he lacks motivation to pick up the pace! I'm looking to get him back in shape with...

    I have a 19-year-old quarter horse who has had hip and joint problems his ENTIRE life. I wanted to start giving him a senior supplement that helps with his joints and whatnot. I was looking at the SmartPack Senior combo because I have had good results with the SmartPack supplements in the...
