    Based on the details and being in the area, it isn't hard to guess which vet is working on this horse. If that lameness specialist is recommending a neurectomy, they are at the point where the...

    Another big, long-oval headed person here. Depending on my hair situation, I have worn 7 1/2-7 3/4 helmets. I have finally come to the place where I just suck it up and shell out for the $$$...
