    Why western saddles have a horn is beyond my comprehension unless one is needed to rope cattle. Those horns are dangerous and not just because of the getting hung up on a dismount potential.

    It's too bad horses with DSLD lines are not being tracked. The disease often doesn't show up until later, usually after one or more foals are produced.

    It's also unfortunate there isn't a simple...

    Please do not blame yourself for this. You made the best choices you could given the information provided by people you trust (your referring vet).

    Selsun Blue doesn't contain any benzoyl peroxide. Active ingredients are selenium sulfide & salicylic acid which should help with this type of condition.

    Are you using only herbs to control your asthma? Stalls are full of stuff (molds, ammonia fumes, dust, etc.) that make COPD worse.

    How much do you soak the hay? Light wetting won't help much.

    So would I. You can get thick rubber 4/6 mats for $39.95 each at Tractor Supply. You'd need 6 to completely cover a 12/12 stall. That's less than $250.

    It's doubtful the OP's vet will make any money having another practice do the diagnostics. However, it doesn't sound like the owner and the vet are on the same page regarding the horse's issues. ...

    Horses can not breath through their mouths. Never have, never will. It appears a basic course in equine anatomy is in order.

    As far as flashes go, don't like them, don't use them. Wish there were...

    I realize that. However, to inject that much dormosedan into a small pony with no history of how it reacts to sedatives is, well, foolhardy and scary. I don't blame the OP for her concerns and she...

    Sounds laminitic to me. If it were my horse/pony, I wouldn't wait to treat. Some equines are very sensitive to soy and should not be fed ration balancers (most contain large amounts of soy). Also...

    It's about 14 degrees as measured from the ground to wing and not the dorsal wall which is clearly quite distorted. My best guess as to why there was no response to hoof testers is this mare has a...
