    Thanks, all! Love the feedback!

    We bought a gallon of the green. I test stained a piece yesterday, and it looks GREAT! Raining today, so doing the barn will have to wait for nicer weather.

    YAAAY!!!

    Ask the vet if long term drugs can be compounded in a transdermal cream, if you do wind up needing to keep her on something. It is SO much easier. :)

    Fourthing drugs.

    For 20 acres, I would think you'd want a bigger tractor. We have a 24 horse John Deere and while nice, it's a little small. The bucket only holds about as much as the rubbermaid manure cart, which...

    Who would want to add up all that $$$??? :lol:

    Totally depends, I think, on how turn key the property is, how big it is, how many horses you have (and how you're keeping them) and what sort of...

    I totally set up a webcam several years ago to watch my dog. It was right after Riana died, and Koa was doing strange things...so I picked up a Foscam camera and watched her from work.

    "Perfect" conformation is different depending on what you're doing with your horse. ;) So of course people aren't going to agree.

    Did the new vet do a lameness exam to confirm the only issue is in the hocks?

    Did the new vet ultrasound anything?

    Excess iron?

    We have SCADS of iron in our well water, and while we have some sort of dealie that removes iron from the house water, the barn water seems to come straight from the well. The water is often pink...

    Glad to hear she's eating! Woo!

    The awesome think about wrapping pills in a piece of a pill pocket is you can dose them with everything at once (as long as the pills are small enough.) Makes it...

    There are horses who need steroid into that joint for YEARS before they fuse, or need maintenance for the rest of their lives and never completely fuse. You've gone five months.

    I think an ultrasound is an excellent compromise, although you do need someone looking at the screen who is quite familiar with the anatomy. Any chance the second option vet has a higher powered...

    DON'T do this if you're using Zofran. It's incredibly bitter and will cause copious amounts of drool. My cat tells me it's terribly unpleasant--even the syrup that tastes sweet to me. She's very...

    I really, really like Seroquine from Uckele. I notice a big difference when I use it (and when I stop!)

    Did you ever try an anti-nausea, Louise? Really worth a shot. Can't hurt. Cerenia is popular, but I've had better luck with Zofran.

    Depends on how much he's on, and what type.

    1000 iu of dl-alpha tocopherol, for example, is unlikely to do anything at all. You really want him on 10000 iu of d-alpha tocopherol.

    I only mention because my own hip pain presents as SI. SO MUCH. And oh my, is it ever miserable.

    Oh, man--you're a vegetarian and you're not supplementing B12? That's really important. I'd honestly ask your doc to test for it, as you may be low enough to require a boost with an IM dose or two....
