  • Weanling has stopped eating in his grain

    I have a 41/2 month old foal that has been eating a mare and foal pellet since he was a week old. He was eating four cups daily but he has recently stopped eating it.

  • Weevils in Horse Feed

    Dear Friends: I have never had this problem before. I bought about 12 bags of sweet feed about a month and a half ago. I opened one of the bags today and it has weevils in it! Can anyone tell me: 1. Did the weevils likely come IN the bag from the feed store or did they come from my place? 2. Will it...

  • Re: Need to put weight on my mare, but she has Cushings

    [quote user="walkinthewalk"] That is a great article and I copied the link over to my local messge board. Now that I have an EMS horse and realize how subtle and insidious Cushings can be, I am trying to raise awareness. Dr.Posnikoff must feel your horse isn't in the severe Cushings category...

  • Re: Picky Hay Eaters?
