    Thank you so much, rcloisonne.

    And you too, Gallop--you are absolutely right. Looking back over some of the pictures I took of him, from him falling down while trying to doze, to him resting his...

    I took my poor guy on the long trailer ride yesterday. The second ultrasound confirmed what the first had shown. If anything, it showed even more damage inside. His suspensory was full of holes,...

    I totally agree with this. I had a 17.1 hand TB who jumped for DECADES who, even in old age and stiffness, never had a problem getting up and down. Makes you wonder what else is and has been going on...

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone.

    Appointment with Vet #2 (actually, vet #3, i guess) tomorrow afternoon for a second ultrasound. If they agree with the diagnosis, I'll be heading home with an...
  5. Update

    If I can figure out how to tag threads, I’ll tag this one with “spider bite” and “free horses aren’t free.”

    The good news first: The vet carefully examined and x-rayed the RF hoof and didn’t see...

    And is there any way to predict it (like a horizontal "string test")?

    I have no idea where my yearling will finish for either length or height but it might be fun to guess!

    !!!!!!!!!! I just googled "canker." I had always thought it was the same thing as seedy toe. OH MAH LORD. I certainly hope it isn't that. I have a pretty strong stomach for horse wound photos and...

    Thanks, alto! I love it here. :)

    His manners *are* coming around a little bit. I think he has figured out that i mean business!

    I'll be sure to post the vet's findings next week!

    Good call! And good call on the Previcoxx too. We have a vet appt scheduled for Tuesday, Oct 14th, for ultrasound and foot x-rays. It will be good to have a baseline to see what we are dealing with. ...

    He is *very* lucky. Although we keep having discussions about his manners so there are probably points in time that he doesn't appreciate his good fortune. ;)

    It occurs to me after re-reading my original post that i certainly didn't actually make a long story short. :) Sorry about that!

    Thanks for making it through the novella. And thank you for the...
  12. How much time should I spend on this injury rehab? NEW UPDATE post #33 :'(

    I could use some COTH wisdom.

    Long story short, I’ve taken on a project horse. He’s not a project in the conventional sense, in that he is very well trained. This one is a PT/rehab case. I am...

    I bought a grooming block, hoping it would be a miracle. It's not. Back to the bot knife, although the Bic razor thing is worth a try!!

    I thought that Courbette's widest was 34, but I'm no expert. Does it *look* wide? Their 36 or 37 would be enormous, especially beyond the tree points.

    It could also possibly be a 29.5 cm?

    My overall impression is that he's built fairly downhill for a TB! That being said, though, the older I get, the more I realize that a super-kind eye makes up for a LOT. He looks very sweet, and I'm...

    I struggle with this too!

    Ride the one you DON'T love, first. Otherwise, you ride your good one first and then find excuses to short-change the one who probably actually needs the extra attention.

    I've never had slipping issues with the two I use on my VERY roundy horse. I have a Tekna synthetic and a Voltaire. The Voltaire was a huge amount of money but is probably the nicest piece of tack I...

    Typically even before PPE, I have a bodyworker (massage or chiro) feel the horse and evaulate any back or neck soreness. I can live with most bone ailments--cold splints or osselets, mild ocd, minor...

    I agree. The mare in the ad look like a Walker with draft ears. I'd guess TWH/draft-x.

    I've experienced the low-flat out gallop on TBs only (although that is what the majority of my horses have been). According to my GPS, Roxie has never, even on her fastest day, downhill with a...

    I read this thread at a 2-day unrated show this weekend, after Friday schooling and Saturday showing were basically huge failures on my part to disregard my trainer's oh-so-helpful advice of "just go...

    Bogie is absolutely right. So many jump saddles have the bars too far forward, and there is basically nothing you can do to change the balance point on the seat with that configuration (except for...

    I actually just spent a summer rehabbing a high hind-suspensory strain. Unsure how the injury originally occurred, but rehab was a) uneventful and b) completely successful (vet's words, not mine). I...
