    Hello! I don't often post in forums, but I am hoping someone can give me some advice. I have a very green 9 year old Oldenburg gelding that I bought in September. I took a risk and bought him because of his breeding, movement, potential and price. I knew I was rolling the dice. They claimed...

    I rescued my mare about 6 weeks ago and she seems to be doing great, although still a bit thin, in my opinion. When I bought her, she had been at the rescue/trainer for a month for training and observation. Her udders were full and swollen when she was rescued, so we believed her foal was...

Her mane is VERY then but it is long and I was wondering on how you could thicken it up without supplements? I brush her mane and tail out once a week and apply a detangler made by Cow...

    Hi All - My trainer has just advised me that she noticed my OTTB is washing her food. Here is what she said exactly: It means that when she eats her grain, she grabs a mouthful of grain and then takes a sip of water. And back and forth and back and forth. In the scheme of things, it sounds...

    This is Widow Maker AKA Apollo my 10 yr old STB ex pacer gelding. When he came he was very very thin, stressed, nervous, and not very lively. He only drank about a gallon of water in 7 days. He raced and lost his final race only a few days prior. He barely ate either. His feet were very long and...

    I sold my mare three years ago and she was bred by the new owner. Colt was born last June and my girl was basically neglected through the pregnancy. She was losing weight during the pregnancy and was emaciated when he was born. Over the last year she's put on weight very slowly, but the...
