    If you think it might be related to soft/tender/thin soles I would recommend giving durasole a try. Cheaper than pads and in my experience works better than keratex for a fraction of the price. I do...
  2. I realize that but your description of the...

    I realize that but your description of the lameness exam is rather vague. Did they perform blocks or x rays of the hock joints to rule it out?
    If no one at the vet practice knows how to perform an...

    I think it really depends on the horse. Some might respond immediately but I have heard more than one vet say it takes up to 7-14 days for the full effects to build up in the system, and as a result,...

    If you enjoy riding the horse enough to get over his lack of good looks I would say keep him. But if you don't enjoy riding him that much, even if he is capable, quiet and athletic then I would say...

    The first time my horse needed his hocks done his symptoms were dramatically different too. Now I know that when he starts feeling stiff behind and slow to warm up that it is not just age catching up...

    You said she got her hocks injected 4 years ago? Does she have known hock arthritis? This sounds an awful lot like my horse when his hocks are due to be injected and he is 23, gets them done...

    Hubby bought me a set for Christmas. They are holding up great and I agree with others that from a distance they look like leather. I feel that the stitching design is not at all distracting and...

    I agree. My dressage saddle started fitting my gelding funny in the shoulder a few years back. The only way I was able to tell was because he just seemed a hair more tense and reluctant to stretch in...

    It is not so much slipping that concerns me but the pounding of old joints on unforgiving surfaces. Older horses don't tolerate that kind of pounding and stay sound.

    Ditto. I have an older horse too and I am a fanatic about footing. I have hunted in the upper 20's and wind but there was a nice snow covering so the horses could comfortably trot and canter . If the...

    Vets that err on the side of caution and are conservative in their aftercare protocol are certainly not causing any harm to the horse. I would be MUCH more concerned about a vet that is being...

    I think dapple greys are beautiful, but, the dapples rarely last and I have NO desire to own a white or flea bitten horse. I think once the dapples are gone they don't look any nicer than a bay or...

    At the barn where your younger horse is at would it be possible for your older mare to be in a smaller paddock with one older or quieter horse that would be nice to her? Perhaps ask the B.O to see if...

    I have ordered OTC supplements and Rx meds from Allivet like Pentaussie, Adequan and Doxycycline. I have had good experiences with them. The Rx process went smoothly and easily and their prices are...

    I agree the most turnout possible is best for an arthritic horse. If the condition improves with light work then I would hazard a guess the knee inflammation is more arthritis than a bone chip but I...

    It is called Equipack. It is a gel packing that is applied via a webbing material that is in contact with the shoe. Lots of people have success with it but I found it tore easily if you did alot of...

    My horse was on the Sentinel Senior at the last barn he was at for about 1.5 years. I found it was harder to keep weight on him with the Sentinel Senior. He looked fine, it just required more grain...

    Have you thought about a full body clip? I know clipping cuts way down on sweat for my horse.

    I agree completely and think this is a very fair expectation. If someone wants to show and take a horse off property they better be fairly contributing to that horses' costs IMO.

    I think you need to expand on this because it can be interpreted in many ways. So is she paying 1/3 of board only?

    Half leases can be arranged however both parties agree on, but I do agree that whatever the arrangement is should be in writing if money is exchanging hands. If you are unhappy with the current terms...

    Is she on all of those treatments together currently? If so, what are the doses?

    Did you taper off of the Omeprazole products (whether paste or pop rocks) before taking her off of the product?

    I have a typed "info sheet" in the feed area of my horse's barn that all of the barn feeders/ BO are aware of. It lists my cell, work #'s as well as my husbands # and the numbers of my farrier and...

    I would not mess around with Purple Mush or other topicals in lieu of surgery. Canker needs to be treated aggressively and surgical debridement is the best way to remove it. Most cases I have read...

    I have had the best luck with using pre portioned baggies housed in a clearly labeled plastic container that states my horses name and says" 1 BAGGIE PM ONLY ". The small snack baggies keeps all 2-3...
