    My sweet mare Moonshine would get very anxious and swish her tail constantly. She would also go very speedily and was quite spooky when the disease was rampant. Good luck with your TWH--those guys...

  5. It is the latest Cornell test for Lymes

    Positive on 2 factors, but not on the first one that would conclusively diagnose for Lymes. Very difficult, but the doctor says to treat.

    Gave it to my horse in the fall. He is in an endemic/epidemic area and he has it now. No symptoms but will start treating him as soon as the doxycyline comes from my vet who is attending a Lyme...

    My poor horse! He is such a good boy and he tries his best to do what I want. But I know that I am crooked because I have scoliosis--curvature of the spine (among other things). I am 62 and have...

    Yes Ma'am!
    That is what I thought. Thanks for the encouragement! I only ride him a couple of times a week, so I am asking a lot of him. You are so right and I will try it!

    My horse is a goober

    I love him dearly, he is gorgeous and a lovely mover, but he will fixate on something and completely forget that I am riding him. When I finally get his attention, he persists in making a fuss about...

    I don't know about any kind of injection--that doesn't sound good to me! Antibiotics maybe--because scratches/rain-rot is a bacterial infection.
