    Hi Dr. Gray: I am interested in purchasing a Haflinger soon. My question is what kinds of questions should I ask the person who is selling the horse? Thank you for your assistance.

    Hi. I give my horse a bran mash every Sunday to clear out his digestive system since he is a performance horse. But I have done some research lately and seeing the bran mashes actually cause more harm than good, is that true?

    Hi Dr. Gray!

    I have been concerned about my horses growing a winter coat while we are experiencing a very warm fall. Neither of them are in work, one is a retiree and the other is a 2 year old. If it is still getting warm (upper 70s to mid 80s) should I be doing a body clip (likely a trace) to keep them more comfortable?

    Thank you!

    Hello again Dr. Gray!

    Should I be concerned about Vitamin E deficiencies more in the winter with less access to fresh grass? Even if they are still grazing, will the grass be lower in Vitamin E because it isn’t actively growing? Should I be supplementing or using a different forage mix over the fall and winter?

    Thank you!

    What is the difference between regular colic and impaction colic? Is one more bad then the other?

    #askthevetvideo I’ve watched all 91 of the videos on your individual question playlist (yes you should be impressed) and I’m wanting to adopt an ottb and help him/her through the last stages of rehabilitation from minor racing injuries. what are the best questions to ask the vet that has already worked with the horse in order to establish a good understanding of the current condition, as well as steps moving forward?
