    Mysterious wound

    If you have an aloe plant break off a leaf and put the gel on the wound.I have used it many times for skin issues and it works great and is very soothing.Glad you got the culprit and your baby is doing better

    Sand Clear??

    I would not suggest putting it in a syringe and into the mouth.too much danger of choke as it swells.when my vet does it wet it is going directly into the stomach via tube into nostril-just like oiling for colic Putting it in sweet feed should work good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

    Sand Clear??

Nobody here gets fed anything on the ground, but they are on grass and when it rains they pull up the grass and the roots have sand so they ingest that...

    What are you watching?

    I so agree chandab.I really dislike it when they take a sledge hammer to perfectly good kitchen cabinets that could be taken out and given to someone who needs things.We in this country are so wasteful I see these shows throw away lots of perfectly good items of all kinds.I am one who is not...

    aloe juice dose

    I used 6 cc twice daily on a yearling. I'm a believer.cured his ulcers-no more grinding teeth.He felt so much better. I have even used it on myself after a bout with severe indigestion from too much hot chili.I would up the dose for a larger horse.IMO can't hurt

    How many mini's per acre?

    IMO you might be better off renting to someone with animals that don't require as much daily care as horses.Maybe goats or cattle of some kind.I would be concerned about the level of care these Minis will be getting.As said previously said get a VERY LARGE security deposit and write a very good...
