    It sounds like tab and I would be better suited once I have my mare going reliably--gotta spend more time with her. My mare is a bit racy from her days at the track, and I don't know how much of an...

    That is waay too cold for me. It's one of the reasons I live in Maryland--not nearly so cold. I'd move to Florida if my husband could tolerate the heat. I'm fine in the cold while working, but...

    Hey Guys!

    I took some time off from message boards. I'm still out there, working, and I see you are here still offering good advice.

    I texted my client this morning to tell him I was still...

    I don't have a problem working in foul weather as long as there is shelter and the roads are decent. It's not worth the risk to myself and my vehicle if the roads are bad.

    Having said that, it...

    Ahh. So the underlying issue has already been addressed. Awesome.

    Funny thing is, my mare was sweeter when she was hurting. I knew she was feeling well enough to ride when she got saucy. Didn't...

    Did you guys get hooked up? If not, I know of a person who is training her horse for 25 mile CTR's and endurance. She might appreciate some company. I'm trying to get my mare going, but she's just...

    Any thoughts on what caused the injury?

    I have an OTTB that had a high supsensory strain at the track, was not given enough rest before going back into training, and it became a hole. I was told...

    I trim some Friesians that I can't tell apart until I look at their feet!

    Were the farrier butts clad?

    Ugh. I grabbed the wrong quote! Meant to get the one about whether the farrier can pick out the clients horses' feet.

    I just have to ask...were the farriers wearing clothes in the pics?

    In the long run, straight talk is kinder and less confusing. The kindness is in how you say it, not so much what you say.

    When I see horses that are in danger of foundering due to feeding...

    I am very sorry for your loss. How horrible, and so sudden.

    I had two horses survive WNV in the early years that it was known to be a threat--didn't vaccinate. It took them a year to get back...

    I subscribe to Beverly's method.

    However, am also learning something new to help when horse is still tense despite my ignoring spooky objects.

    First, one has to sit up "neutral pelvis", which...

    This answers my question, thank you. Was looking for a bony reference. I would have guessed that the horse is going to try to weight his toes more (posture change) to spare the back of his leg and...

    My guess is that soft tissue does the accomodating. Having to compensate for longer feet stresses the soft tissue. Drives me nuts when people expect serious performance from horses who are due for...

    A2, I originally built my business taking on difficult, rude, elderly horses in pain, and "rescued" horse with terrible feet. IOW, the ones farriers refused to trim for various reasons. I found...

    Pat, the CoP in relation to the shoe or in relation to the P3, or does it work out to be the same thing? I'm curious, because the shoe appears to move forward in relation to the heel bulbs as the...

    Thanks for breaking the process down so nicely JB.

    My new mare has been out in my pasture for a month now. Time to do a fecal? Or wait a bit?

    I'm thinking she has a low resistance to worms...

    I've seen more than one vet shake her head at the new stuff coming out. Not in denial, but in regret over former deworming recommendations.

    When we know better, we do better. I haven't had...
  19. Boots have to fit snug

    You've gotten some good advice here. I've got several different types of boots for my different horses. Some get rubs in one type and not another. Unfortunately, it can boil down to trial and...

    Good job!

    I sent you a private message asking for the name of the former farrier. I'm in your area and would like to know who not to recommend to my clients who want shoes.

    Also, would love...

    It varies tremendously, so I chose "other."

    For my clients, the entire herd gets trimmed at the interval needed for the horse with the worst feet. If that is 4 weeks, then I usually do the entire...

    Are you talking about growth of hoof wall or bone growth? I'm thinking about bone growth with a shoe of a given width and length nailed on. It would be the nails (restricted by nail holes) that...

    Good points. However, I see these horses fresh from the track and the sales. Granted, I'll only see a couple hundred in a given year, not a statistically significant sample. I'm still seeing long...

    I wear shoes to trim. If you'd read many of my posts here on COTH in the past few years, you'd see that I'm not overly critical of others' work. I'm not opposed to shoes on horses and never have...
