My 21 year old has had a sudden weight drop. After a blood test, the vet recommended giving probiotics. Probios is unavailable in my area at the moment. What else can I give?
Do you have a Tractor Supply? They carry quite a selection of equine supplies. You could order online as well.
What are your advice for slowing the pace of a thoroughbred ? I am using a regular snaffle and half halts, but doesn't help.
Thanks for all the advice. Going to try more circles. He has had plenty of time off and retraining. Have introduced poles--very new to him. Going to try twisted snaffle.
Scribbles has been acting up a lot, the bet stays he's fine but I know my horse he has been scaring me a lot like , mom wants to sell him because she thinks hes dangerous. What can I do?
Daily turnout is a must! Make sure he's not getting too much protein or sugar in his diet as well. Sometimes the cooler temps make them feel like running. Work, work, work him! And lay down the ground rules, and make him respect you!
My horse is a little lazy but when I get the crop or whip on him he just buck and continues on slowly. Any tips on getting him more forward (without spurs) without him kicking out?
I would give him a special treat and/or graze when he does really well. Don't be so quick to offer treats. Maybe this would be something for him to look forward to.
