    Facial Paralysis/Neuro probs - PLEASE HELP

    Thanks :-) I have done more research and it seems botulism can take 7-10 days to display recogniseable symptoms. This ties in with him. Also he is displaying every symptom. I have spoken to vet again today and they have not tested for it, and still insist he would have displayed symptoms...

    Why doesn't anyone feed bran anymore?

    I think the main reason being is that is hardly has any nutritional value, and you have to add limestone to it. It is basically classed as a pointless feed and not quite so readily available in feedstores. These days there are much better feeds on the market which are complete feed so people...

    Facial Paralysis/Neuro probs - PLEASE HELP

    Yes, we mentioned the pigeon a million times to all the vets that have seen him. Vet basically said he had been contaminated by the pigeon then he would have been severly ill within 24hrs and dead within days so he completly ruled it out. The pigeon was more of a carcus, bearing in mind it must...

    Overbending Solutions

    This is about my friends new horse. When she got him a few weeks ago he was quite hard to ride into a contact. Now all of a sudden he is very overbent. He is ridden on a normal eggbutt snaffle with plain cavesson noseband. He is quite a forward horse and works nicely from behind. She used draw...

    Which paint for wooden stable?

    Which is the best paint to paint the inside of a wooden stable with? It just needs tidying up a little. I am after something that would seal the wood as I put huge straw banks up which I only usually turn twice through the winter. Can I just use something like Ronseal? The stable will not be...

    Which 4x4?

    I am really considering swapping my car and box for a 4x4 and trailer, I have done all the maths and think it will work out better. Anyway I am a little stuck as to which 4x4 to go for. All of these I would be looking at getting a 1996-1998 one (that is the budget). Ideally I think a Shougun...

    Would you say this was "cruel"

    I would not go as far as saying it was cruel, but I certainly wouldn't do it to my horse. Horses put up with a lot as they feel they should not object or complain. You say he carried on, but that does not mean it was not hurting him. It is like we sometimes ride when we have an injury, but at...

    Tucked up - ideas please

    He had definatly not been sweating, he was not that hot. He was tucked up before I took his rug off as I noticed it the moment I removed it. It was not that hot, I had a t-shirt, jumper and coat on, just quite a bit warmer than it had been.

    Tucked up - ideas please

    Do you think it is possible his could be the other way around? It suddenly warmed up yesterday compared to the past week, it was 2pm when I got him in and he had a MW on.

    I got Baron in yesterday and he appeared very tucked up behind. The only time I have seen him like this before is the day after I took him on a fun ride - it was a really hot day, he got very sweaty and would not have a drink afterwards. Anyway he went for a lesson on monday as usual, I gave...
