My Horse Forum
Hi guys, so I posted a couple of days ago about a name for my new horse who is a nine year old QH who is a grey that has turned almost all white with a little bit of a flea bitten look. He is very cute and little mischevious (sorry spelling?) and has the reg. name of TH Lord have Mercy. Name doesn't have to do with it. I tend to like short names, 1 or 2 syllables but open to all suggestions. I am stumped and I can't stand just saying hey horse. So..... HELP!!!!!!
Well, the days just get more and more interesting for me:
Last weekend, I noticed that my senior gelding's sheath seemed to be rather... swollen. I poked gently, and it was firm, not squishy. I decided to watch it for a couple of days to see if the swelling would just go away. It didn't. Monday, he was even MORE swollen - like there was a baseball in there. He's been peeing normally as far as I can tell, but I called the vet out anyway.
She came out on Tuesday, sedated him, cleaned his sheath *really* thoroughly, (even though it really wasn't bad at all) and then examined the whole sheath area, inside and out. Nothin'. She said she couldn't determine why the sheath was swollen AND mentioned that she was seeing several horses lately with mysterious swollen sheaths. All she could recommend was daily hydrotherapy (which he LOVES ) and exercise.
I'm supposed to check in with her tomorrow if the swelling is not better.
Soooo... anyone have...
Don't know if this has been on here before but I love to play with this for names for my horses. Have fun!

i have been forced to feed round bales b/c of the lack of hay around here. but it makes such a mess and is a pain to clean up b/c the horses get right in the middel of it a pee and poop all in it. is there a way that i can make a round bale feeder for under $100.00 dollars.
