  Is there a decline in horse ownership?
Posted by: joe-horses - 12-21-2018, 03:19 PM - Forum: General Information - Replies (1)

I've noticed tack stores closing over the years and even saddle makers closing shop. Riding horses is as old as dirt!! Are we getting the younger generation involved in the joy or horse riding - it's much better than any video game out there.

Hi everyone!
I'm thinking about Free Leasing Rocky to someone who wants a horse but can't afford one, he will stay at m house so whoever is interested would be coming here to ride and work with him.
I have never done this and wonder what I should ask of anyone interested and how would I advertise for this?

It seems Photobucket has decided that uploaded pictures cannot be shared to other sites unless one upgrades at $399/year! This affects ALL pictures so anyone that has used Photobucket and shared pics, no longer have those pics available on DE or any other site there were shared.

To say I'm upset is putting mildly. [Sad!]

Horses are like potato chips.....You can't have JUST ONE!

Well, I may be a horse addict! I have two horses, and recently just added a pregnant mare due at anytime to my collection! [Big Grin] Not to mention my other horses is getting bred at anytime! I couldn't pass up my new Registered Quarter Horse Mare, Her Grandfather would be Zip's Chocolate Chip, and Great Grandfather Zippo Pine Bar! Who could pass up that!

  More trail pics to ignore!
Posted by: PaintGal - 04-27-2017, 01:22 PM - Forum: Trails - Replies (2)

In the hopes of keeping DE alive, I'm posting MORE TRAIL PICS!!

These are from yesterday's ride in southern Indiana. The trails were mostly dry and it was a beautiful day. We didn't stray far from the trails today since all but one area had been cleared of fallen trees. That one is going to take more than a chain saw though. It's about 20' wide with several trees stacked on top of each other. It might be a permanent detour around that.

We had a guest ride with us. This gal lived in the area several years ago and had horses but moved to FL and has been horseless since. She was amazed at the changes in the trails since she left. There's been a couple of tornadoes which cleared some areas. Other areas that were open have grown up with scrub trees and brush. Trails relocated... It was interesting to listen to her comments.

Ulcer Warning Signs

Studies show that a high percentage of horses that travel frequently, are stalled frequently, or consume high levels of grains. High performance horses are at a higher risk of having ulcers. In mild cases of ulcers, the symptoms can be so minor you don’t even notice. More severe cases are much easier to identify.

Signs of ulcers:
weight loss
acting up under saddle
cinchy, biting
not able to touch the stomach
teeth grinding
bad attitude
high anxiety
loose stools
poor hair coat

Some signs of ulcers can be easily confused with saddle fitting issues. The only sure way to know if your horses has ulcers is to have their stomach scoped by a veterinarian. Your horses stomach needs acid to digest food. They can produce up to 9 gallons of acid per day even when not eating. It is recommended to decrease the high levels of grains your horse is consuming and increase the amount of roughage per day. Using a slow feeder to feed you horse hay helps prevent waste, along with keeping your horses eating all day long and maintain a low acid level in the stomach.

There are many great supplements on the market to help prevent ulcers or help your horses that have ulcers. Ask your trusted veterinarian what they recommend.
