    When we bought our new house we negotiated on price (the seller accepted our first offer, yay!) but were told in no uncertain terms that there would be no more negotiating. We could do all the...

    Good for you and for your mare! Sounds like you both handled a sticky situation very well.

    Aw, thanks. I got the order for a bone scan but it is only lower back. I went back and asked the ortho (via his assistant) to include the hips. I mean, if they are injecting me with dye and taking...

    Skeletally speaking, he's not done growing until at least 5 (the spine is the last to finish). Height-wise, he may or may not get bigger. I had a 4 yo TB who grew taller until he was 6 (16.1-16.3 -...

    I got that - I just thought it was so . . . weird!

    I will admit to my puritanical glee over this whole thing and I even commented to Mr. PoPo that it is like the modern-day scarlet letter. I...

    I saw a second doctor about my hip and he suggested an injection (IA). I went to see a different ortho for back xrays and he was wondering if my back pain wasn't the source of my hip pain (xrays...

    OP, glad that he got his teeth done and hopefully that will help. If he's just four, he'll probably need them done every six months for a couple more times.

    Good point from Cat Tap if he's...

    If I had hindsight to look at how I handled myself after falls, I would shake my fist at my past self and not say "get back on and tough it out!" I have suffered from chronic back pain for years. ...

    A basic neuro test isn't expensive - just whatever your farm call is plus the cost of an exam. The vet will go through the various components of the test, although if they aren't familiar with it in...

    Getting hay tested

    I have about 6 months of hay in my barn and I'd like to have it tested. I don't have a hay-coring gizmo and did this once before by taking lots of little cuttings from all the bales I could get to. ...

    My horse was on Robaxin (methocarbamol) years ago and I didn't remember that it helped him much. At the time he was getting regular chiro and acupunture and I think that vet suggested Robaxin...

    It may not be of the popular opinion to let the horse "win," but if it is an exercise the horse knows how to do and is being resistant, I'd find another way around it and assume that something is...

    If going by that original list and article would describe an empath, then yes, that would be me (all of it!).

    I remember being at the barn and warning someone about another person. "Oh, I like...
