    CJF doesn't mean anything, and "best farrier" is all relevant :)

    The trim is really not good. How long from the last trim to these pictures?

    Have you had xrays? I would want to know if WLD has...

    Slow feeder nets. Smallest holes you can do and still allow food to come out.

    Having hay in front of a horse 20 hours a day doesn't mean it has to be 40lb, or however much the horse will eat.

    They SHOULD be wider than long, or at least the same :)

    I do think that every single person with a horse with any bare feet needs to be shown how to properly use a rasp to at least round off the...

    I see "a few" as 3 or maybe 4. That could mean as few as 2 trims since getting her. Maybe 3. Depending on how distorted they were, they may very well still be longer than wide. Until we see...

    But we DID have these problems years ago. There are many old pictures of quite thin horses working for their living. Ulcers DID exist - they are not a new thing. They may be more common with how...

    It would help to see the feet.

    If past poor trimming has led to the longer than wide conformation, that doesn't change in a single trim, no matter how good it is.

    It's not about just finding and pulling off ticks. Every year we both pull a few imbedded ticks of our bodies. But they are newly attached, still flat, so it's never even been a question of...

    Twice as long if the dose is split in 2?

    When our dog was diagnosed with Erhlichia, the instructions were "full dose once a day, or, if the stomach doesn't tolerate that, 1/2 a dose twice a day"

    DH finally spoke to his Dr today, and the Dr pretty much said - without dismissing any concerns - that he's not worried. From all the descriptions, it's likely such a really small risk that it's not...

    I'm only questioning why one would add 2lb of a RB "to make up the selenium deficiencies", when

    - it's easier *and cheaper* to add just selenium (and way cheaper to add just Vit E to see if that...

    To be fair, you can add a RB, even a partial dose, if the horse is getting a partial dose of a regular fortified grain :) LIke - if he's getting 3lb of TC Sr (which is too little) then he could get...

    *I* would not be adding 2lb of a ration balancer, to a "regular ration" (I assume you mean a regular feed?) for the purpose of adding Se. That's sort of silly. Add Se!

    But even before that, go...

    Since you sometimes need abx for hind gut ulcers/colitis, this makes me wonder if there's any possible connection between HGUs causing/allowing/exacerbating foregut ulcers?

    I could have sworn I just recently, as in the last few weeks, read something about how now most, if not all, ticks have been found to carry Lyme.

    Twilight Zone?

    It's definitely not a deer tick, but Lyme has been found in pretty much all ticks now IIRC :(

    At what point do you worry about Lyme (human)?

    Last night DH found a tick between his toes (can you say - Super Heebie Jeebies??! :eek: :no: ) and while it wasn't fully engorged, it had obviously been enjoying itself for a while *barf*

    I don't...

    Unbalanced trimming, changes in exercise/activity level, stress (moved barns, buddy moved, new horse in the group, etc).

    Mud doesn't cause thrush. Unhealthy feet allow thrush. Poor trimming, standing in manure and urine cause thrush.
