    Foal with scrotal hernia?

    Have you thought of using a larger size disposable baby diaper? not sure how large your foal is. Thinking that the waist band would need to fit around the foal where the hernia is and that may or may not keep a bandage on.

    Happy 4th... And how do you handle Fireworks and Animals???

    Happy 4th to you. My horses are fine with fireworks. Our neighbor gets carried away with them.....but we endure. Our 2 dogs are terrified and they do best in our bedroom with the door shut. It seems they feel secure in there, they are scared of guns too and they are hunting bred dogs. Good thing...

    Farrier Table??

    An older friend had a stand for his vet to use to take coggins and give shots and things like that. He had like 45 head. Basically a ramp they walked up to get to a small level standing area. Had brackets on both sides with wood slat railings that could be taken off easily to do 1 side, put back...

    Rosie and the Clippers...

    I clip a bridle path for the horses that I drive, just because it makes it easier for me to get the bridle fit. About the middle of every winter when that hair is sticking straight up and out I wish I didn't do that. Haa. I have 2 oldies pushing 30 yrs and I need to body clip the 1 but the other...

    Electric fence...to use or not to use

    Lots of looks and no one is answering so I will give it a shot. I use electric wire (not the tape) so I have no experience with the tape. However my horses are respectful of the fence and I have never had a problem in the 29 years I have had the Minis. My fence is 4 wires high. Never had a...

    Marsha is giving you good advice. Separate them so the mare can have a better situation.

    Respiration rate on a weanling - help

    Wondering how your foal is doing. I don't know where you are from but I always ended up clipping the heads and at least the neck/chest area on my foals as the summer heat seemed to bother them. I am in MN. No advice on the respiration rate though. Hopeful that you put in a call to your vet for...

    "Miniature horses still allowed to fly as service animals"

    That is a tough one to answer. I would think you need to buy a "seat" for the service dog or cat, and they could actually sit in that seat on the plane right? Now if you have a Mini Horse as a service animal and you buy a "seat" where does it stand? I kinda think they are too big to fly unless...

    Minis that cant get along

    I would consider putting a fence up between the 2 and realize they may never get along. I don't think it is normal for horses to fight at feeding time. Mine don't. I have a group of 3 mares, a group of 4 geldings and a group of 6 other mares. My 2 stallions are in runs seperate but the cattle or...

    Summer hydrating

    Glad to hear there is some improvement. I also have been offering some plain table salt to a couple of mine that just don't seem to bother with salt blocks. If nothing else it makes me feel better! They do drink more I have noticed. It seems to be above normal heat here and it is just hanging on...
