Has all their hay gone by 8pm? Do they have any left in the morning? Are they overweight or poor at all?
Ideally they should have adlib hay so they always have something to eat (as long as no health/weight issues)
Last summer when Whaley Bridge Dam nearly went my ponies were under the flight path of the chinooks. The shettie didn't care, but my mare would stand and watch them load up and fly over - she wasn't scared I don't think, just interested
Pony is in a 10x10 stable. Needs dust free bedding (see my previous thread), just pulled all her matting out and disinfected the stable today, and it was disgusting under the mats. Considering not putting them down again, as they don't fit properly so wee gets everywhere, but then obviously...
My mare is on previcox, 1/4 tablet a day, I squish it into the middle of a slice of bread, She is considerably younger though, but it has helped her
ETA not expensive at all, so maybe worth a try before winter hits to see if it helps?
So this summer Equihaler was approved, at £250 a pop, meaning that vets can no longer prescribe cheap generic inhalers under the cascade.
My mare was just diagnosed recently - help - every treatment seems to be extortionate and she's not insured :confused:
I'm changing her management to soaked...
