    Silver they show well?

    Silver Dapples and/or Flea Bitten in colour are my absolute favourites! :aktion033: One day, I hope that I will be blessed with a matched team of Flea Bitten geldings. I have to agree that seeing a well matched pair of either colour mentioned above, under harness, brings tears of joy and envy...

    Temp. rises to 104

    Thanks Virginia. Never thought of pneumonia. How would he check for it? Actually the vet did mention that he thought it might be respiratory, listened to his chest and then mentioned that it would be normal for the horse's breathing to be strained a little due to the fever. He said it is how...

    Who won Dancing with the Stars?

    Yes, Drew won! :aktion033: I really thought Stacey was a great dancer and had a lovely personality. Terribly disappointed when she was voted off before Jerry. :no: That was really unfair. Ohh well...great fun watching the dancers and look forward to the next episode.

    Horse not drinking, could use some suggestions

    My vet suggested I feed them a warm, soupy bran mash drizzled with molasses. Beet pulp (soaked) is greatl however, my horses hate it. The bran mash is always enjoyed and this would ensure some water intake and warms their bellies on a very cold night. :
