    I'll disagree that it *has to be* a non-stretchy wrap over a nobow/etc. It depends on what you're trying to do.

    When my guy severed his extensor tendon and had a lot of swelling, not to mention a...

    I wouldn't fret too much yet over this. I'd just move forward as I described, and just do a few more frequent FECs on this guy than you might otherwise do, just to get a better feel for his...

    I MUCH prefer nobows over other types. As said, they are foam-filled (and there are varying degrees of quality of the foam), which makes it harder (but not impossible) to cause a bandage bow (ie...

    When in May? I'd be less concerned if it was early May (which makes today almost right at 12 weeks), than at the end (closer to 8 weeks). Doing a FEC now makes me thing you're closer to 12 weeks....

    It looks like long toes, with flaring, which is causing the separation of the white line which is what you're seeing. This is a farrier issue.

    The 14/6 is over 23% NSC (sugars, basically). You'd be much better off with the Legends Performance pelleted (not textured) at 13%, or Triple Crown Growth, Senior, or Low Starch, at at 13.9, 11.7,...

    I rode in my trainer's Dressage saddle first, which was a 2000D iirc. Then I bought my older Top Dressage. When I went looking for a CC saddle for that horse, I test rode a Nona Garson, Meredith,...

    Definitely definitely try a Prestige. Prestige - many models, both dressage and CC - fit my WB (with very little TB blood, not remotely TB-shaped) very, very well, and his back is shaped similarly...

    Ugh, I forgot that part of my whole reply - other than Day 1 "crap he's really lame", and rapidly diminishing to no lameness by Day 4, mine wasn't lame. Not when the pus came back, not when the...

    Yes, as stated before, *all* horses who don't get adequate fresh grass should be on supplemental E. Horses can't make it, they have to eat it, and hay has next to none in it.

    My mare too didn't care if her food was taken, and the foal was more than happy to take it. I had the feed bucket up so high at one point it was hard for her to eat, but he'd still stand up and...

    This is why you don't look to the APHA for pattern (or color) accuracy :) They only see Tobiano and Overo. They do not have any classification for any of the Overo patterns. Everything that is just...

    It's not milk replacer you're looking for, it's a milk-based pelleted feed :) Progressive has one - Foal's First Starter and Creep. I think Seminole and Buckeye have one as well.

    IMHO, yes,...

    A few months ago my 3yo came up dramatically lame in his LF, leg swollen to the knee. I treated him for an abscess (after being reasonably sure it wasn't a suspensory, no heat anywhere in the leg,...

    Oh good call on the Vit E - pretty important for all horses not getting enough fresh grass.

    I think it just depends on what's being fed. The M&F here isn't doing any good - he can't digest most of it, and it's high in sugars. A milk-based feed could be introduced at this age,but if his...

    Under-supplementation causes more growth problems than over, unless you're REALLY over :)

    What you feed in addition to forage depends on his weight and calorie requirements. If he doesn't need a...

    Genetics mostly.

    But beyond that it's dietary too. No 2 horses have *exactly* the same nutritional needs as the generic horse of their age/weight/workload. A deficiency in copper and zinc can...

    Is Challenged the "pretty blaze and 4 high, jagged stockings" stallion? If so, that's a lot of "color" :)

    Some stallions are "white killers", so even with mares who produce a lot of color with...

    I have since learned that around the yearling stage is when a genetic club(y) foot will show up, and it causes the grazing stance, as opposed to the other way around :)
