Skip to comments.The FreeRepublic Saddle Club thread! - Thread SIX
Posted on 06/01/2005 7:34:38 AM PDT by HairOfTheDog
This is a horse chat thread where we share ideas, ask for input from other horsemen, and talk about our riding and horse-keeping. We have a lot of different kinds of riders and horses, and a lot to share. In the previous threads we have had a great time talking through lessons, training, horse lamenesses, illnesses and pregnancies... and always sharing pictures and stories.
I always have a link to this thread on my profile page, so if you have something to say and can't find the thread in latest posts look for it there and wake the thread up!
I also have a ping list for horse threads that are of interest, and Becky pings everyone most mornings. Let Becky (Paynoattentionmanbehindthecurtain) and/or me know if you would like to be on the ping list. As FreeRepublic is a political site, our politics and other issues will probably blend in . There are many issues for horsemen that touch politics land use, animal rights/abuse cases that make the news . Legislation that might affect horse owners.
So... like the previous threads, this is intended as fun place to come and share stories, pictures, questions and chit-chat, unguided and unmoderated and that we come together here as friends. There are lots of ways of doing things and we all have our quirks, tricks and specialties that are neat to learn about.

New folk and occasional posters, jump right in and introduce yourselves, tell us about your horses, and post pictures if you've got them!
To my knowledge West Nile is an individual shot still. Been two weeks since I saw the vet but it was then. I don't think it has been out long enough for be in a combination, plus there are arguements as to it's safety on pregnant mares (amongst horse people - vets say it's safe)
can yall see anything else beside the west nile that I might need?

You need West Nile; a 4 or 5way vaccine which is the sleeping sickness, tetanus, flu vac; and you should keep on hand penicillen and tetanus antitoxin. These all need to be refridgerated.
I order through http://www.valleyvet.com
Ok. It looks like everything there except the West Nile. Do you have to have an RX? I see they have PCN so I'll pick some of that up too. Horses don't require rabies?
The reason I'm asking all of this is because I got caught off guard. I had no idea what all the vets had given. I want to do it myself so I know what all they get this time.
17.95. How long does it take to get here? A 10 dose vial would last me 5 years:')
Your vet would have only given yearly vacs, which is the 5-way or 4-way (all the flu stuff) and now, West Nile.
Horses generally don't require rabies.
It is shipped overnight. I just ordered tonight so it will be shipped tomorrow and I'll receive it on Friday. You wouldn't want a 10 dose vial - two single dose syringes are all you need so figure $32 with the shipping.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by 4-5 way. I'm looking at the first one at valley vet. Fluvac Innovator 6 (3 way s sick, tet, flu, rhino). The only one I see that says 4 way is a rhino only. What are you counting?
You want one that has the sleeping sickness (2-3 types), tetanus, and flu. The one you are looking at is fine, I just don't vaccinate for rhino so I would use the Innovator 4 if I were using Ft Dodge. I just ordered Encevac TC-4 + VEE which is about the same thing. It's #25073.
Ok. I got the immz. You order the antitoxin tet don't you because they get the toxoid in the vaccine, right? Whay kind of PCN do most use?. There are about 6 brands.
I'm sorry it takes me so long to reply to you here, I don't get around in AOL very well.
Well I'm going shopping. BRB
Done. That vaccine shipping charge got me but the vaccines 8 dollars cheaper and I would have spent more than 4 dollars in time and gas so I still came out ahead. Thanks.
You are more than welcome :)
I forgot the wormer . that's a good price. I'll use what I have here and wait until I get paid for more though.
In Texas, horses do need rabies vaccine. Every animal on my farm gets rabies vaccine: goats, big horses, little horses, donkey and of course, dogs and cats. I've already had 2 cases of rabid skunks hanging around my house in the last year. My husband killed them and we had them tested, they were positive for rabies.
I had no idea you didn't need a prescription for penicillen or tetanus, I'll be darn. I would add one more to your list of drugs to have on hand, Ace.
Did your vet give you a script for those vaccines?
Hair, what an interesting head on Frog (cute foal, too.) What breed is she?
Good morning Becky, I am so glad you couldnt resist the baby pics, JP looks so adorable! Make sure you keep those pics!
Looks like you could ship him to Hair and He could help with the mowing! : )
Your rose is beautiful, such a deep color, bet is smells good too! (We need scratch and sniff on here!)
No but I have to get the W Nile from him. Rabies wasn't on the list that he quoted me either. I'll have to ask about that today too. They overnight the vaccines so there was a 12 dollar shipping charge. The same vaccine was 17.95. The feedstore was 21.95.
Huh. They can't sell tetanus in Texas.
I meant rabies
The mare and foal belong to FrogInABlender... and I think they are both Racking horses.
Good morning everyone!
Just hanging around a bit, Blake is sacked out on the couch. We will run a few errands in town, then come home and ride.
What time is your Lippazaner show? Will it be late before you get home with pictures:)?
I bet it will be pretty late. It's at 7:30 in the evening... couple hour show probably and an hour home.... all in Pacific time. So we'll post them late, and all but the night owls will probably see them in the morning!
I finally got caught up with the new thread. I was out of pocket over the weekend and it's been wild here at work ever since. I'm glad you reposted Truly and Ellie's picture. I liked it too. Thanks!
Goodmorning! I will be checking in and out all day.
I didn't know that. I jut had the vet out for the horses' yearly shots, will check and see if the vet included rabies.
What part of Texas are you in (sorry for dangling participle) :^D
What has happened there... did he miss is steer?
The big red barn is out in front by the road and off to the left of the house...
I zoomed in a little more for this one so you could see a little more detail...
Thankyou so much Frog! Second home.........Argh! It's beautiful! James came and got me and said i would be pi##@d at something you posted to me! LOL
Oh it makes me want the mountains and a log home SO much! : D
Ps. Forgot to say, I WANT that barn! : )
I have Ace but I'd never recommend that to a novice horseman because the reactions can sometimes be unpredictable. There is the occassional horse that goes bonkers with it. It's always my drug of last choice.
My understanding on rabies is that it has to be given by a vet so that the records are available - I'm not sure how it works there and with horses.
Nice cowboys :)
Yeah, it's that way in Alabama too. The vet supply catalogs have a whole list of states that they won't ship rabies vaccines to, so you could tell that way. My vet won't even let me take a rabies vaccine home with me and give it myself. He says he wants to perform the vaccination so that he knows that it was properly given in case there is any problem. I can't blame him coz it'd be his butt that'd be on the line if the horse turned up with rabies.
Well I guess you answered my question on why the vet wouldn't give it to me.
You might want to ask him about EPM. I vaccinate all mine for that too. I've had a couple of friends lose horses to that.
What is it?
Who is here that isn't on the banned list?
You guys are making my head swim with all this talk of deciding on vaccines. There are probably many instances where I just follow my veterinarian's lead (and it has nothing to do with him being cute) and which vaccines, in which combinations, and from what company is definately one of them. Heck... I'm not qualified. I don't know what they need, I've never had a horse catch any of these diseases, nor really known anyone who has... save strangles...
I'm giving what the vet says they need but I'm in charge this time. There won't be another occasion when my horses gets sick and I don't know what they have been vaccinated for. I'm trying to save a little money and learn some stuff too (grin).
And my vets definately not cute but baldness does have it's own charm:')
