Questions answered in this episode:
1. What do you think everyone should know before owning a horse – medically, that is?
2. When does supplementing become too much? I’ve talked to vets and they’ve said different things. What is your opinion, and when does it become too much?
3. What are the pros and cons of 24/7 turnout?
4. My horse has developed gigantic windpuffs in both legs. My vet assures me they are only cosmetic, but I’m concerned this may indicate joint discomfort and/or weakness and want to know if there is anything I should be doing to help combat it?
5. What vaccines should I be giving my horse?
