    I would get ANY "spongy" swelling ultrasounded. The sponginess just screams soft tissue injury to me. After my horse's suspensory injury, the feel of that type of injury is forever etched in my...

    I rode and showed hunters/jumpers from 1985-2013. I started to get interested in dressage in 2012 and have now fully switched over. I love it and have zero regrets or desire to switch back to...

    Oh, I didn't see that! Interesting, although not very practical for most horse owners because not many people are going to have time to make different blanket offers throughout the day. I could see...

    Very neat. For stalled horses that get daily turnout, I suppose you would also need to figure out a way to communicate that they are going to be either inside or outside for the next several hours. ...

    I agree with the others - you need to get more protein into this horse. Given your hay situation, I think I would buy alfalfa cubes and soak them or buy alfalfa pellets to feed.

    I don't know many...

    Poor girl. I agree that the chiro timing is suspect, but what she is doing also sounds kind of ulcery.

    For what it is worth, my horse acts similar to this when he has a rib out. So it truly...
  7. I have a similar issue, only my horse and I are...

    I have a similar issue, only my horse and I are both better to the left.

    One thing we've done that has helped is counter bending (both directions). So, going left, I will counter bend right, then...

    If it were me, I'd be buying out that other 1/4 of the horse right NOW, rather than a month from now, or even a week from now. I sure as heck wouldn't be looking around for barns to move the horse...

    I am not a person that routinely advises euthanasia. Check my posting history if you want to be sure. That said, I would let this mare go peacefully. Navicular is very painful and degenerative. A...

    Yes, just chiming in to say that the guy probably really WAS a process server (in case that helps you to feel better, OP). I'm an attorney, and I've read the process server reports in matters where...

    Yep, and many, many upper level competition horses would be put down as well.

    You understand that horses do not OWE us anything, right? The concept of a horse "earning" a retirement or not "earning" a retirement really makes very little sense.

    We, on the other hand, owe...

    While I was riding in a lesson once, a fellow boarder would not stop offering advice (yes, speaking OVER my trainer!). I finally rode by and said, "Not interested in your input, [boarder's name]." ...

    I guess one of my main points is really this:

    If you think about it, can't most of you think of a situation where a nice horse is in the wrong situation and can easily get labeled "dangerous" as a...

    Yeah, I hear ya. I'm just not sure that what was on the Animalintex was really an abscess drain (or any kind of drain). I tend to trust the vet when he says he doesn't think so, either. He's a...

    So, he was sound for his vet appointment. Vet didn't seem to think there was an abscess - referred to the stuff on the Animalintex as "probably just junk from next to his frog." Going to put him...
  17. Abscess draining on both sides of the frog?

    Can this happen, or is it likely something else (like thrush)? Horse was very lame yesterday. I soaked his foot in warm water last night and then wrapped it with a wet Animalintex hoof pad. This...

    Thanks guys. I'm hoping it is an abscess and not something more serious. I just hate the thought of him being turned out if it is something else.

    I'm going to have the vet come look at him...
  19. Hoping this is an abscess...does it sound like one?

    First of all - vet is coming out tomorrow morning.

    I rode my horse in a dressage clinic on Saturday, and he was great. Also rode yesterday (Sunday) and he was great. Felt sound both days. Last...

    Well, I've been there too and was able to work it out with the horse. It was not his fault and I'm glad I stuck it out. Mine was also a rearer and bucker, often in combination.

    I'm not saying...
  21. Well, isn't that exactly why people shouldn't...

    Well, isn't that exactly why people shouldn't jump immediately to "euthanize that terrible horse"? Heck, for all we knew at the beginning, she could have been riding a yearling with a piece of...

    I wish I could take her, actually. I can only have one, and I already have my guy. It's very hard to know what is going on without seeing the horse, but I really do believe that most horses are...
  23. Geez. I for one would be giving the benefit of...

    Geez. I for one would be giving the benefit of the doubt to a six year old TB with minimal training. She's most likely misunderstood or in pain, rather than a gangbanger that is out to hurt you.

    THANK YOU!

    Everyone is so quick to blame the horse, even though we know nothing about the horse's age or the competence of the OP and OP's trainer.

    Honestly, most behavior problems are...

    I would not use more hand and I would not bit him up (I would actually have him in a much less severe bit than what you are using - he's only 4, and, as you say, not balanced - it's not really fair...
