Hi all I own this beautiful lady above her name is Trienke, I have had since she was 6mths old, they think is she has been unwell since Oct 2010 came down with a colic type illness, but at the on set of her illness showed none of the usual signs of colic which bemused my vet, however did get better when treated for colic and an obstruction. She has never managed to put any weight back on and still looks tucked up, to date she has had another 5 attacks the vet have internally examined her, given tube fed liquid paraffin, painkillers a 5 day panacur worming program buscopan and pain relief but nothing worked, more recently I had bloods ran on her to check liver and kidney function but they came back normal, the vet said had he not seen her he would have told me not to worry you have a healthy horse, however because he has seen her there has to be something else underlying has anyone come across this type of illness with their horse before as I am desperate for any advice HELP.

    I don't know if this applies to horses but awhile ago I had for five years a chronic abdominal pain that no one could find an explanation or cure for. Then I went to a certain gastrointeroligist and he found that I had a bacterial infection in my small intestine that emitted gas when I ate certain foods. The small intestine in human beings anyway isn't supposed to produce gas, perhaps this could be what is wrong with your horse?

    I too have a Friesian mare that has colic once. Took five days to pass, scary!! Are you familiar with SmartPak? They are a supplement company with an excellent staff with tons of knowledge. They have helped us tremendously. Also, Aloe Vera juice will help with her insides. Good Luck

    Other than waiting fore a vet to come, there is only one product anyone can use to stop colic in a horse. It's an alternative treatment called Equine Colic Relief. I have first hand experience that it really works. It is all natural and has a shelf life of 11 years! Helps me to have some on hand.

    A very high percentage of horses have ulcers. They will display the symptoms you have mentioned. There is a product available from your veterinarian called Omeprazole that WILL WORK if this is your horses issue. There is no downside to using this drug, and I suggest you do not waste your money getting expensive tests, just treat the horse and wait to see if you get results (You should notice a difference in 2 weeks). This can be a lifesaver for horses with ulcers, and if you are not familiar with this ailment, you will be amazed when you reasearch independant studies on how many horses will have this (Example: 86% of racing thoroughbreds). I do wish you the best with your problem. I think I should add on here, I do not have any affiliation with Omeprazole whatsoever. The dosage I USE when I suspect this problem with a horse is 20cc by mouth one time per day for 2 weeks, then 10 cc per day as a maintenance dose. I always go back to the loading dose if the horse is under any stress, such as travelling or showing. Please check the instructions on your bottle, as there may possibly be different formulations on the market...I am from Canada. Good Luck :) !!

Hello Can I have a flame angel with a koran angel in the same tank as a 500 Lt? Some of you have any experience?

    I would say probably just because the flame angel is a dwarf and the koran is not, but be careful. If they are close to the same size they may be aggressive towards each other.

Last night we found a small mourning dove, she seems to have no balance, her wings seem fine and she will wrap her feet around our finger. Not sure of age, but she does not seem to have tail feathers. Right now she is eating wild bird seed and will drink water, will she eat bananas? Or dried cranberries? That is all i have right now, will go to pet store and see about some grit and maybe a better feed for her. I also have some lettuce, would that be ok for her?   any help would be greatly appreciated!   thank you tina cooke, conway. Sc

    I don't think bananas are in their usual diet, but it probably won't hurt to try. Dried cranberries probably won't hurt either. Lettuce should be fine. Definitely get a good quality seed mix and grit. Good luck!

    I have a female mourning dove in my yard seems to be off balance as well did you find out what was wrong with the one you found? Connie ny

I just purchased one today and I must say that it is a stunning fish to have in the tank. If you want to keep one, make sure your tank is large enough and you have plenty of rockwork for it to hide in. It doesn't come out much because that's not in it's nature, but when it does....WOW!

I recently acquired a 3 or 4 year old Percheron/Paint cross. I do not know exactly how old she is, she came from an auction. The man at the auction knew her mother was a gorgeous, very large black percheron mare, and her grandmother was a very large grey percheron mare and that her father was a paint and knew the lady who she was seized from (She was rescued from a dry lot) but we were forbidden from contacting the lady. My girl is between 14 and 15 hands right now, her ankles are very large in comparison to her feet and her rump is about a hand taller than her withers. How much taller do you think she might get? Keep in mind that she was malnourished which may have stunted her growth. All comments are greatly appreciated! I just want to find out as much as I can about this beautiful girl as I have started many many horses, but never a draft of any kind. Thank you!!

    From its parentage, Percherons range in height from 15 to 19 hands high while Paint horses generally stand less than 16 hands high. So it could be anywhere from 15 to 19 hands high, but my guess is that it will probably be closer to the 15ish height.
  • Brenda - 2014-01-07
    From what I have learned she is as tall as she will get, but will get bulkier. Around 5 years of age percherons will mature.
  • Kimberly Dixon - 2014-03-10
    I, too, rescued a malnourished Percheron at the age of about 2. We have come a long way! He is almost 17 hands and beautiful! The correct diet and the room to run has made such a diference with him. I think Max has topped out and will not get any taller but he is thickening up quite well. The vet said his muscle mass would not be as thick as a well nourished foal would have been but he is very thick and has the beautiful thinck percheron neck so I think it all depends on how they are fed and the conditions they are rescued to. Good luck, this big boy of mine is the best horse I have ever owned and I have 26 on my farm!
  • Jae - 2014-08-25
    Keep in mind y'all, that draft horses can grow until they are 7 or 8 years old. The bigger ones tend to take a longer time to grow, which include other breeds (except thoroughbreds, which grow too fast for their joints. [I have a TB]). My brother's quarter horse was over four when he grew another hand, topping out at 16 hands. My husband's 2-year-old percheron is between 14 and 15 now, has the largest butt in the herd, and has started on another growth spurt. I had hoped he won't be over 16 hands when he's done (for my husband's sake; he just isn't that limber.); but, seeing as there are about 5 more years of growth...I guess my husband will have to start taking pilates.

My Holland Lop bunny Chip is the cutest bunny in the world. He is as bad as he is cute. He is sweet and gentle but also a biter. But he is still a good bunny. We love him sooooooo much. My bun bun is black and white and furry and soooooo adorable.
