My big horse did this until I upped his copper intake nearly killed a tree. When the goat swallows the bolus, it will sit in their rumen and slowly dissolve. Since this sounds like your first pregnant mare, make sure you check the wormer you are using, some are good for pregnant mares and can harm the foal. This is a win win for everyone, you make your sister safer, your mom gets your sister on the horse riding, and the horse gets rid of a pain bit And wild horses DO NOT self medicate, they graze close to water and to a source of salt, they do not search out anything else, they eat poisonus plants and die from it just like domestic horses would. Sorry my dear, wrong again, you got on a horse that was not ready or safe and wanted to be "cowgirl or cowboy up" and like many people have found out, you are not as good as you think you are and a horse will show you that anytime you think so.
Let goats lick copper pipe
Hi, im hoping you might have some advice for me about my mares lameness. It is a partnership, not a horse that you have to constantly correct??? Forget what happen as a colt, it is not important. Thank you for your time! If the horse is playing with the halter, then it is not scared of it, so that tells me that you are trying too hard and not the right way.

Moderation is the key, not too much of any one thing. Being a responsible horse owner means you do things to prepare, learn and increase your odds of success. I am soft on the reins and pay close attention to any pressure I give on a rein. Hi I have a year old colt which has briefly been handled - he comes up to me in his own time and licks my hand - i can then gently stroke is neck and then move to his shoulder. But little pony wouldnt touch it. That is what they know, that is what they are, that is where they come from.
The faster you get that, the better you both will be. Somethings you don't want to rush and take your time, but there comes a point that if you continue to take your time the horse knows and thinks you are a weak leader. My teacher said that she spent more time in the stall this past week than in the pasture. Yet the first thing from most Barn experts is?? This is not a horse problem. A curb bit is for a horse that is neck reined and is softer. They will teach him more in a day than you can in a year.
