  • Re: Loose manure with work?

    Think I spoke too soon. It's back to cow patty. :(

  • Re: Haflinger supple or not?

    Boyle, thanks for your words of encouragement. Actually I am riding her in a combination bridle - hackamore style noseband with shanks and a twist snaffle along with a curb chain and rubber bit guards. Sounded harsh to me, but here is why - when I bought her about 6 months ago, the lady showed me an old calcification in the cheek of her mouth just behind where the bit sits. She recommended I continue using the hackamore on her as she had during the past 3 yrs of being with her. I've never ridden

  • Re: Loose manure with work?

    Well, so far I believe what I'm doing is working gradually. I changed her diet and got her back on Ranitidine. Didn't realize it can take a month or two for Ranitidine to do the job. Anyway, I'm sticking to her new diet and the Ranitidine and being patient with it. I believe it's starting to work. Manure is more firm now and I don't have to clean her legs after exercise. Her manure isn't exactly like the others who have nicely formed balls, but it's certainly getting there

  • Haflinger supple or not?

    I have an adorable Haflinger who is the most friendly girl ever. This is my first Haffie and I'm wondering a couple things about the breed in general. I had an acquaintence tell me that she will never be soft and supple because she is not built that way. However, she is built very uphill. The girl told me that because she has a short neck that she is not cut out for being soft and suppler. She's great to ride, but does go forward like a freight train. However, does not even come close to

  • Re: Best feed for my horse?

    I agree with Solaris and AKDay. I've done a lot of research lately about feed/grain and what is best for the horse's system because I have a problem child. I'm in the process of switching to no grain. Only beet pulp with no molasses, alfalfa pellets and/or Timothy pellets, local grass hay, probiotic, and vitamins - that's the diet of my horses.

  • Re: Loose manure with work?

    Yes, I've already done a poop/sand test - no sand at all. I am stumped here. I gave her a dose of Bio Sponge. Seems to have slightly helped. My vet still believes ulcers, so I'm still inclined to think that and am getting my education on it. Have taken her off grain and giving her beet pulp, alfalfa, probiotic, and will add chia seed to that in a couple days. Of course, grass hay about 4 times/day. Actually, I'm switching everyone here to no-grain. Everyone will have the same diet as

  • Oval head, round head, helmets?

    Do any of you have suggestions on helmets that are round shaped and also oval shaped? It's time for my daughter and I to get new helmets. We already know that her head fits better in a round shaped helmet, like Troxel. I have a Charles Owen, and I have an oval shaped head. I'm thinking Troxel for her and maybe IRH for me. Although I really wanted to get the Ovation Protege for us, as they look to be super cool and lightweight for our Florida weather, but I believe they're right in the

  • Re: Loose manure with work?

    Well, she's been off the soy for about 3 days now, and no change. I took a poop sample to the vet this a.m. They haven't gotten the results yet, but they said that cow patty poop isn't usually a symptom of worms. It's a mystery right now.

  • Re: Loose manure with work?

    Well, the fecal exam came out great - no worms - 0 count. So, I still have no direction here. The vet tech suggested I talk to the vet and get her feedback. Those of you who feed beet pulp, do you wet it first? I used to feed beet pulp to an old horse I once had and I never fed it dry. It was a real pain to soak it, etc. I always let it soak for at least 20 minutes, but I've heard of ppl feeding it dry. Don't know if that would help at all, but it's the only thing I really haven't
