    anyone else ever had problems with colic after worming ? (equest pramox)

    I am terrified of this wormer! Actually I am wary of any worer now, but in particular Promax. I wormed my mare with it last year and got a tiny bit on my lip when she threw her head in the air. I was soooo poorly! I ended up in hospital on a drip. Unfortunately the hospital were not certain...

    Is my son over horsed???

    I think the horse looks fine for him, however can I just point out that it is VERY important to get the correct fitting hat! Your local supplier should be able to help you to find one that at least allows him to see where he is going :p Fab photos! x

    My horse has just had a bandage on for 7 weeks! (Well of course the vet changed it numerous times during that period) and has a lousy sore on the front of her leg.

    Activon manuka honey to treat leg wound...

    My mare has been soooo accident prone this year you wouldn't believe! While I was in America for five weeks she stayed with my sister as she had just had a collateral ligament op. We think because she was heavily bandaged she had grazed her hock getting up one day. My sister did everything she...

    please comment on my horses feet/shoeing -

    I am not an expert on horses shoeing at all but I would definitely agree those shoes are not big enough. My mares come right back to her heel/frog. He also looks very low in his heels and the toe is too long. I almost feel I can guess who your farrier is without asking! :rolleyes: Can you...
