This is the first time I've posted anything. Read everything though and am so thankful for everyone's posting. I have not run across this topic of discussion and would like to ask questions of others who have horses and Celiac. Thanks!

Don't have horses right now, but I used to team rope when I was a kid.

Don't eat the horses' oats! Might be contaminated with gluten-containing grains!

(Ok, that was lame, but it was the only link I could think of.)

Hey and Welcome!
If you have horses on your property, you can make it work. I have had several horses over the years, but none as a diagnosed person with Celiac. Others here have.

What are your questions? Or, what is your routine with horses? We'll try to help

AND welcome! :D

My horse died a couple years ago just around the time I was getting sick so I havent replaced her but I do still have some sheep. A month ago I glutened myself by breathing in dust from the sheep ration. I was reaching down into the bottom of the conatainer and at the time I remember thinking - this is pretty stupid, I should be wearing a mask.....well now I wear a drywall mask when mixing feed and no more problems. I also found out that some alfalfa pellets have wheat starch in them as a binding agent which was a surprise as I thought they would be pure alfalfa.

I see horses in my future but for now I would love to talk about horses, I could talk about horses all day long.

I used to have horses a couple years back but I had to sell them for financial reasons. I was not diagnosed as a celiac at that point. I've always loved riding, I had a quarter horse gelding and a spotted saddle horse mare. Eventually I want to start riding again and get into competing in hunter jumpers.
