Except if it's frosty, then they will eat popsicle grass!

  Pauline, you mentioned Rory was diagnosed with Cushings. Have you ever given him Pergolide, or have you just treated him with the supplements? Does Cushings go away, or just the symptoms?

Hi Jeannie
I have not needed to use Pergolide for Rory. For over 6 years his Cushings symptoms have been controlled with the spice Chastetree Berry plus all the other supplements I use for most horses. I do not think of it as a cure, just management of his symptoms.

The only remaining sign of Cushings is a slight curl to his winter coat a month or so before it starts to shed.

Hi Pauline, thanks for the information. Since my horse is in his 23rd year, I think I will have him tested, and I know the vets recommend Pergolide, but I've heard good and bad things about it. I like to know my options.
