    My guy is an epic fit thrower about mane pulling. I was about to add tranq for pulling on top of his already impressive vet bills and I said screw it and roached it. It's the longest I've ever let it...

    I agree with those that are saying we don't have enough information. Too many horses are saddled with the wrong situation and that doesn't mean they should die for it.

    Basically a nerve block is just a numbing injection on the nerve. The vet will watch your horse go without then start low. After each site, they will watch your horse go again. What should happen is...

    Get the nerve blocks done! My gelding has very similar lameness. I spent $$$$ going down so many wrong roads and when I finally did the nerve blocks (which I knew better than to wait on but I was so...

    Thank you for your response Patty! That gives me a lot to think about. The vet mentioned nothing about a navicular lesion so I'm so glad I had a second look. I will start a hunt for the best farrier...

    Thank you! I sent a PM and I should have a helper to get hoof pictures tomorrow. Dear pony goes from being totally sedate and content during stall rest to being cranky and wild. Today was a cranky...

    Her thought was that a soft tissue injury could be causing the bone growth.

    I'm in eastern Iowa. Thankfully due to the nature of the horse industry in the area (largely AQHA and APHA) we have...

    I provide TC Senior on top of the barn feed. Makes me a little crazy but I feel like if its included he might as well get it and it cuts down a bit on the TC Senior I would have to pay for.

  13. Long distance podiatry consult recommendations?

    Long story short, my 12 year old TB gelding has been mysteriously lame for about 9 months. After lots of work (and money!) we think we found the culprit in his RH hoof xrays. We're at a bit of a loss...

    Are the shoulders lined on the Baker's? I almost bought one but shied away because I couldn't figure out if the shoulders were line. (My horse has wide pointy shoulders :/)

    I don't mind a vaccine program. It means something to me that the barn owner/manager gives a damn. Obviously strangles is a hot point (my gelding got it at the show barn last year and I opted out at...

    How is birth control any different that maternity leave when it comes to paying for other people's sex? Would we support an employer than refused to prove any kind of maternity leave?
