Summer just does NOT like Happy Hoof at all. I forgot to take out the Equus article before I gave the mag. away, does anyone remember if Seminole had a pellet feed with a NSF of around 10%? Thanks!
I don't still have the mag, either, but when I did, someone asked about the feeds they featured, and I answered with a message listing them. Check the old messages.

AniMed oil ... I'd also love to know if there's any real difference (besides price) in buying the cold-pressed oil from Whole Foods versus the AniMed oil from Country Supply.
I remember Dr. K saying the flax oil should be cold-pressed, so if it's not, you might want to stick with the more expensive kind.

Re: ODTB cubes dry or soaked

Mandy Woods
 

Kathy,
These cubes are smaller than most others. They measure just less than an inch wide. Their length varies...from 'fines' to a quarter inch to 4inches. It doesn't take much to soften them. IF you just spritz them with water the fluff up. Each horse will be different about their preference from dry to wet. Save the 'fines' at the bottom of the bag and use them for flavoring BP. Some horses eat those readily dry. Most horses like the flavor of them. If a horse doesn't feel satisified with just cubes you could add a flake of hay for chew time. It takes Asher one hour to eat 4 pounds of cubes. We do this 4 times a day plus a soaked flake at night. All you will need to add, if this is your complete diet is Vitamin E, loose salt and freshly ground flax seed. Feed at ground level. I use an 18 gallon rubber maid storage container.

For those of you who clip your wooly ones, what form/pattern do you use?
I' ve never done this before. Do you clip all over?

Riding Boots

JMillwood5@...
 

Does anyone recommend a particular boot for riding my Cushings horse? I
have used the Easy Boots and don't find them easy to put on. Also, would
probably like a softer inside pad.

Any thoughts as to whether this will help with his front end ringbone?

ODTB cubes dry or soaked

Saucier Kathy
 

We are getting closer and closer to getting the ODTB cubes in TX. It has been approved and they are working out the logistics of storage. I hope in a couple more weeks I have a big announcement to make to everyone down here who wants to give these a try.

So while waiting for that to happen I would like some opinions.
My barn owner really doesn't like the idea of feeding cubes dry. She has a fear of choke. She wants to soak them like she does the alfalfa cubes for the rest of the horses. My thinking is if they are dry he can munch on them off and on all night when he is up whereas if they are soaked, he will only be able to eat so much at one time and then it sits getting nasty.

So please give me some experiences with this and what concerns I should have.
Thanks,
Kathy Saucier & Magic

New to list here, I don't personally have a cushings horse- I've had
clients/friends with, so I'm here to be better educated :)

Wanted to respond to horses napping though (as I feel more expert in that
department :))
I have four- nappers :) They sprawl all out as each takes turns standing
guard- Sometimes 2-3at a time - One of them snores a bit as well-
It's not uncommon a couple times a day especially if the sun is out-

Well, Morgans love naps! And many a time, I've "slippered" down our barn
aisle, and every single one of them were flat on their sides, sound asleep
in their stalls.

I've slept in the barn my share of nights, awaiting foals, so can say this
is not unusual. Maybe they just feel completely safe.

It depends on what kind of insurance you have on your horses. It shouldn't affect liability (which is usually the primary reason why people insure their horses), but it may affect mortality. All you can do is ask your insurance agent. We had the two thoroughbreds who are both insured for mortality and liability. Our I.R. pony was just insured for liability (we didn't even bother with mortality). It's how you word the insurance policy and if you tack on a rider clause. Also some insurance is also useful to cover tack just in case of loss. So it depends on what you are insuring and how you are insuring. You may have to specify perils as well, which means that you would exclude anything to do with I/R or laminitis, but barn fire, catastrophic injury, struck by lightning, etc could be covered.

Basically you can get insurance for anything if your insurance agent is willing to write the policy, and he/she can find an underwriter willing to honour the paper when it's written.

You can feed 25-30% beet pulp (by dry weight) of total diet.

Hi Lisa,
I give my horse 1 lb. of beet pulp split into am and pm. So he gets 1/2 lb.
each feeding. (I measure it dry, then add water.)

IR and Insurance

Epona GiftHorse Gallery <epona@...>
 

I was wondering if any of you here in Canada have your horses insured for
medical and mortality. My insurance is up for renewal, but I have never
mentioned to them that my horse has developed IR. Would this be something I
SHOULD tell them? If I do not, would my insurance be void in the event of
any issues arising from his condition? Would this condition make him
un-insurable?



Thank you!!

Re: IR and Insurance

Lori Long
 

If your insurance is anything like mine, anything you DO tell them they'll
void from your policy. For instance, I had an mortality-only insured mare that
had a stifle injury that we had to do surgery on. I reported it when my
policy came up for renewal and they put a clause in that if she should happen to
die of a stifle injury in the future, they wouldn't cover it. Is that
crazy?!!!!

I currently have 3 horses insured for mortality and two are IR -- they
weren't IR when I first got the policy. I'm seriously thinking of canceling the
whole thing because I'm confident if one should happen to die of IR or
foundering, they wouldn't cover it anyway because I didn't report it right away. For
what I've been paying every year, I'm not sure it's worth keeping anyway.

Re: Horses laying down

Carlynne Allbee
 

At every ranch I have had my horses, all of the horses lay down sometime. For example, around 10 am, a whole group of them are down for the after breakfast naps. At night, if you quietly go through the barn, about half of them are asleep laying down. When we have had a cold or wet spell (that is a relative term here in San Diego county), then when the weather clears up, another bunch of horses will be laying down "working on their tans"

I rarely see them laying down in the afternoons. On the other hand, there was a ranch near a busy road that every morning around 7 am, this one particular horse would lay down for his morning nap. And at least once a week, city people would call animal control to report a dead horse and the uncaring people that were just leaving it there...they just knew it was dead because it was in the exact same spot. Animal control people got to the point where they would start asking the city caller "Is it a white horse, and is it just by the telephone pole, and you saw it at 7 am, ?? Yes sir, thank you very much, but we can assure you that the horse is fine. He has been taking his naps in the same place for the past 10 years.
