    Sand Clear, Sand Colic?

    Hi Everyone-- I finally got around to getting fecal egg samples done on our horses. The vet said that there is a large amount of sand in the feces. I find this very unusual because the horses are out on fairly lush pasture, not a dry lot. The area where the horses are kept is "normal" soil, no...

    Fecal Egg Count Tests

    Hi-- A few years ago I got a fecal egg test kit from Ozark Mini Tack for about $15 each. I am trying to get more to test our herd, but I can't find anything cheaper than $20 each. The vet charges $12, but $50 for a farm call so that isn't the best deal. Does anyone know any good sources? I am...

    Amongst the Roses

    Despite having to give her a bath in the rain on Saturday I think I did a fairly good job of a barn clip. She'll be in a show in about a month so I left her legs and ears undone.

    Sew for Good

    Hey-- Just wanted to share what I've been making---they are little "smock" for premies in the NICU at hospitals. I can't wait to deliver them next week. I found the pattern online and got hooked.

    Hi Everyone-- I'm looking for some fun and creative names for a Mini Horse Club Summer Horse Show. It doesn't have to be completely original but I'd like something better than "Summer Classic." Thanks
