    How about wetting down (soaking if possible) her hay? Helped reduce my horse's cough within a day or so.

    Oh, so very sorry to hear it. We have Koi too, some for 4+ years. I'd be heartbroken if we lost Big Ang and the gang. I am wondering where the chlorine came from? What is the life span of a koi?

    My horse got this a few (late) summers in a row. Non painful but silly looking. He is on a dry lot so the only thing I can attribute it to is him eating the dried black cherry tree leaves that blew...

    Except for the neuro stuff, she sounds just like my mare with the sticky stifles (intermittent upward fixation of the patella). Your description of a schooling session was her, verbatim. It is...

    Thanks. Yes, tough love was all it took. Late yesterday I saw her sheepishly saunter over to the round bale and she stayed there! Today they are all hanging out together, so the problem took care...
  6. What's with these horses? Can't we all just get along?

    Horse heirarchy/relationships can be so fascinating...or maybe I am just easily entertained. Anyway, I took on a new boarder and am having a hard time figuring out my other horse's reaction to her. ...

    Gosh, it sure sounds like what my mare went through with her sticky stifle, but not so much lame as resistant and short strided on the affected side. Much worse after a lesson concentrating on...

    The only way I can get my mare to eat powdered bute is to add a fat supplement that seems to be irresistable. I use: http://www.buckeyenutrition.com/supplements/shine-'n-win/Detail.aspx

    Some of my horses seem to prefer loose salt, so I have a small bucket in their stall and they can take it as needed. I am surprised how much they choose to ingest, sometimes 1/4cup over night, then...

    She is now getting better with every ride, meaning I can go longer (25-30 min) before she gets ouchy/fatigued. I am probably just too impatient. Also, she has a small lump on the inside of that...

    This link provides a clear explanation of the problem and how blistering can help.

    I had my mare's stifle (only one) internally blistered 2 weeks ago. She was stiff at first, then a few days of slight improvement, then she would be good at w/t for about 15 minutes before she would...

    Could this be an odd presentation of pain from sudden (gas?) colic, perhaps? Can you use your cell phone to take a short video while the episode is happening?
    Best of luck figuring this out.

    I am in Michigan. I just go look at the hay fields before they harvest it, and before I agree to buy, to be sure it is free of the stuff. That being said, I do have some growing in my paddocks. I...

    Upward fixation of the patella? Since I am going through this now, it is the first thing I thought of. This link describes other symptoms also associated with the disorder....

    My Dutch mother-in-law slices fresh peaches and then soaks them in red wine with a bit of sugar. I think she puts it in the fridge overnight, stirring lightly every once in a while. Heavenly! She...

    Goforward- did you blister both stifles? I know that is often the protocol, but my mare is so sore on the left that I thought I might just start with that one. One of my concerns is that the...

    My understanding is, that for the patellar fixation, the exercises strengthen the quad muscles and that makes the ligaments more taught, therefore fixing the problem. Muscles should strengthen/build...
